Garmin Nuvi 2599LMT-D review


Another sub-£200 sat nav to add to your "will I/won't I?" buying list…

App support ; Takes mobile calls ; Decent and free traffic alerts

Patchy voice recognition ; Expensive extras ; We prefer the look and feel of TomTom's maps

A very solid sat nav that's particularly useful if you need lots of cannily curated Points of Interest The best thing that the Nüvi 2599 has going for it is its price. At £180 it's the very definition of mid-tier system and the app support, Bluetooth...

Garmin nüvi 2599 LMT-D review


First and foremost, while the Garmin nüvi 52 LM and the TomTom Start 50 lack any sort of connectivity, the nüvi 2599 LMT-D has several options. First of all it has a built-in receiver to access the live traffic information, that is carried by digital...

This is a feature-laden satnav with a responsive 5in capacitive touch screen. You also get voice recognition and voice activation, plus a built-in receiver for live traffic information. We doubt that many people will need more from a navigation device....

Garmin Nuvi 2599LMT-D review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Garmin Nuvi 2599LMT-D is a large 5-inch, mid-range sat nav that comes packaged with traffic services and free lifetime maps. It uses 'Digital Traffic', beaming you the latest congestion information via the DAB radio network. But will it help you...

Backward step

My 5 year old satnav allowed type of vehicle to be set (bicycle to truck). Essential to avoid very minor country roads when towing. This one does not have that facility so I have been obliged to turn around with great difficulty on occasion. Also the...

We bought this to replace our old TomTom satnav, which didn't have updates. It is AWFUL. I've spent ages puzzling over the downloaded manual, trying to see what they're getting at; the TomTom was immediatley intuitive. 3 times, in strange towns, I've...

Reliability Issues - Dont Buy

  (Rating Hidden)

I'm on my 3rd unit. Despite the fact that there are some great features, there are issues particularly with reliability. Some of the "Don't Buy" reviews here make claims that the unit does not do this or that when the unit actually does. Basically,...

Would not recommend

  (Rating Hidden)

Returned after 1 week of use. Huge delay in real time positioning on maps. When navigating the device map would be showing old position half a mile down the road. When steering off the set navigation route the device would not automatically...

I find it hard to understand the previous comments as I have found this 2599 LMTD to be much improved on Garmins of a few years ago. I had switched to TomTom for their better routes and traffic updates. My last TomTom was the GO 6000 but without a lot...

I previously had a Navigon device which was excellent, this Company was absorbed by Garmin and no longer update their maps. Based on the 'Which' report I chose this device. The routing options are impossible to understand and seem to have little effect...

Don't Buy

It is hopeless at roundabouts; it tells you which exit to take a mile ahead, and when you approach a roundabout it states "enter the roundabout" not keep left or right, so lane guidance is poor doesn't guide very well on a roundabout either.When you...
