    nüvi 2597LMT featuresA Garmin TrafficA to help you spend more time on the move. With Garmin Traffic, your driving map remains onscreen at all times. Traffic alerts appear to the side of your map and messages are spoken, too. Garmin Traffic can give details about the situation, such as how many minutes of delay to expect and if there are any possible detours. It can even confirm whether or not you are on the fastest route. Garmin Traffic is voice activated, so it responds to spoken requests. Lifetime traffic2 entitles your nüvi 2597LMT to receive free traffic information for its entire useful life.


    The Power of Your Voice

    nüvi 2597LMT has the luxury of voice-activated navigation. Speak, and your device intelligently responds; your hands can remain safely on the wheel. Of course, you can also navigate using the touchscreen interface.


    Garmin Real Directions™ with Garmin Real Voice™

    nüvi 2597LMT redefines "spoken turn-by-turn directions" with Garmin Real Directions, easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a friend, using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. No more stress from trying to read street names. Garmin Real Voice is refined speech technology that sounds more like a natural, friendly voice. Garmin Real Directions and Garmin Real Voice are features that are only available in our line of GPS navigators.


    Bluetooth® Compatible

    Sync a Bluetooth-enabled device, such as your smartphone, to nüvi 2597LMT for hands-free calling through its integrated microphone and speaker. Safely stow your phone in a glove compartment, pocket or purse and still make and take calls without moving your hands from the steering wheel or your eyes from the road.


    Smartphone Link Compatible

    Smartphone LinkA is a free mobile app that connects your nüvi 2597LMT with your iPhone® or Android™ smartphone. When paired, your nüvi 2597LMT can use your phone's existing data plan3 to share information - such as where you parked, POIs and your destination.
