Garmin nuvi 2498LMT-D 4 : This sat nav is very easy to use

Sat Navs

Used it straight out the box, immediately advised me of traffic and took me the quickest way round it. Great purchase as always with garmin.

I like this device, but there’s room for improvement, there’s a certain lack of information on the screen when in use. Overall though not bad, and fairly easy to use.

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. Here are the specifications for the Garmin nuvi 2498LMT-D 4:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Easy to use bright 4.3″ touchscreen sat nav includes preloaded street maps for 45 European countries including UK and Ireland
  • FREE Lifetime Digital Traffic – Fast, accurate and continuous updates let you know if the road ahead is blocked, length of delay and alternative routes
  • Free Lifetime Map Updates for Full Europe – ensure you drive with the latest road and Points of Interest information
  • Real Directions provide clear guidance using recognisable buildings and landmarks as reference. Exclusive to Garmin
  • Sync with a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone for hands-free calling

Ranked no 3 in this years auto express sat nav test, no’s 1 & 2 are considerably more expensive and offer no better features or quality. It looks good with a large, clear screen and it knows where it’s going.Redirects quickly should you miss a turn or find your way blocked etc. The free accessory pack that came with it and the fact that it’s £30 more everywhere else made my mind up to buy it. Ignore the silly negative review from one individual who complained that it didn’t speak in french or with a french accent when they were on the continent. Perhaps they wanted the cast of ‘allo allo’ to direct them. Good job they weren’t in romania or else dracula would be expected to guide themanyway, great bit of kit at a great price, what more could you ask?.

Easy to use,many good features.

  • Really good, my daughter and family went to Italy and

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.

I have purchased tom tom for over 20 years however although the hd traffic is good be aware. The availability of the service is appalling. After being asked by tom tom to renew my subscription (50 quid) i thought it was time to ditch them and try garmin. This is an excellent product, the quality is much better than tom tom and the traffic uses the rds traffic system. However if you do want to link to the live traffic through your phone the subscription is much cheaper although you do need to use your phones data service. The product looks and feels like an apple product such is the finish and the screen is much better than rival tom tom devices. It’s less bulky although the traffic receiver is external to the device (but very small and built into the wire). The traffic options for garmin are confusing there are three different options one is traffic via the fm, one is via the dab frequency and one is via a smart phone (internet link).

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.

Early indications are that this unit will be a good replacement for my older model. Early indications are that this unit will be a good replacement for my older model. It would probably rate 5 stars but i would reserve that until i have tried the unit.

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.
