Garmin Nuvi 2468LMT-D  4 : Good, but could be much better.

Sat Navs
1

I have owned tomtom devices for the last 6 years and have got through 3 of them now. Appalled by the consistently poor(non-existent) service offered by tomtom and the fact that my last two devices have basically died and won’t even turn on without being plugged in to a power source i decided to try something else. Believe me, this was not a decision i took lightly as i had been loyal to tomtom for years and very nearly bought the new tomtom go 5000/6000. I tried both out extensively and decided against the new generation of tomtom device as it has been released in an appalling state of development and should never have been released – just google reviews for it to see what people have to say. There is very limited functionality and i think this new generation has gone for ‘pretty’ in terms of graphics rather than a proper user interface. The garmin nuvi 3598 is the best satnav i have ever used by a country mile. The touchscreen is clear and responsive, the voice control works.But more than that, the interface is engaging and interactive.

I can’t praise this sat nav enough. It has got me through a couple of long and pretty tricky journeys now, and has done so in a non complicated, non stressful and easy way. The directions given are very clear and concise. The way in which the screen displays which lane to take is excellent. It is really clear and even i can’t get confused. The voice option i am using is not irritating, which i have found on other devices. If a wrong turn is taken, the machine creates a new route automatically, and almost instantly. So far, the device has not told me to drive the wrong way down one way streets or anything daft and it has coped well with directing me round diversions and bypassing accidents on the motorway etc. The estimated time remaining on journeys is very accurate.

Absolutely knocks the socks off tom tom. This is a review from a faithful tom tom owner, who has been blown away by garmin 3598. Tom tom, you have seen the last of me as i am now a big garmin fani have had this garmin nuvi 3598 for a few days now and been testing it. Some slight issues initially because it wasn’t reading out the street names but when i downloaded the latest updates it gave me the extra voice which reads those names. Screen is clear, love the magnetic mount and super sleek design. It really puts the very basic tomtom 6000 in the shade. Full of useful functions including the voice command. It works better than expected. Just the odd blip here and there with regards to routes – on fastest route it doesn’t always take the best roads in my opinion.

Really very pleased with this sat nav. It looks good and it works very well. Out of the box, it is very easy to set up and get going. Literally, attach the mount to your car windscreen, plug the charging unit into the cigarette lighter, attach the sat nav and off you go. It is easy and intuitive to program in where you would like to go. The satellites are found quickly and easily – much better and quicker than sat navs made by a garmin competitor. The standard ready set voice is not annoying which is a bonusas for the directions it gives, they are clear and accurate. The maps are easy to read and have not made an error on any of my routes yet. If you go the wrong way, the sat nav instantly configures a new route – there is no waiting for it to think about it.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • This sat nav is very easy to use
  • Picks up satellites easily. A bit heavy so not well held with
  • Really good, my daughter and family went to Italy and

The garmin so far has behaved well. I had a tomtom for some years but renewing the maps was expensive so i decided to see what the garmin with it’s lifetime maps was like. The garmin is not so easy to use as the tt but that is probably down to getting used to it. The route planning at home before a trip is poor as the route is only followed in real time as opposed to the tt speeded up method. Voice command in use on the garmin is very clear and understandable and the directions are very good. The built in pois are excellent and the ease of adding personal ones is very easy. All in all i would rate this as better than the old tt and far better than the latest ttsthe real test will come when we use it abroad this year. Having used it for some time now we are very pleased. Being a bit chauvinist, the female director continually says arriving at.

Great navigation but hopeless traffic . Having originally bought and returned a tomtom go 6000 due to software problems ( see review under that device ). I decided to try this top of the range garmin unit. Excellent build quality and premium feel2. Real glass screen with excellent colours, sharpness and resolution3. Beautiful slim design with lovely metal finish4. Excellent touch screen response similar to a smartphone5. Bluetooth hands free calling7.

Its ok nothing special for the price likes to take you the long way around google maps is better.

This sat nav is very easy to use. This is the second sat nav of the same model we have bought, as we have had to get a second car for work. This sat nav is very easy to use, it is quite intuitive, and the on-screen and voice instructions are easy to understand. The sat nav maps can be updated, the only niggle is that some things such as small roundabouts are not picked up in some of the smaller towns. Other than that i think the sat nav is good value for money.

I thought it would be difficult to use but was quite straight-forward. A pity a written manual didn’t come with it. Everyone is assumed to have a pc these days.

Very good but could be better. I have had various sat nav’s but this seems one of the best. Only problem and i have emailed this problem to garmin is that when in camera alert mode it does not voice activate to inform you that their is a camera. It just beebs and the you have to take your eyes off the road to read the sat nav for any information about the camera. Older sat nav/cameras i have had did alert you by voice. Seems strange that the newest ones to not have this facility.

Product good, large and clear display. . Product good, large and clear display, however, may want to rethink the cable to upload life time maps from computer to sat nav that comes with product, i can register product online ok, but for what ever reason can’t (cable) won’t load maps.
