Garmin Nuvi 2595LMT With Lifetime Map Updates, Bluetooth And Voice Commands

February 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 202

The Garmin 2595LMT is a surprising navigation unit. Unlike factory-offered units that can cost more than $1,000 and may need special subscriptions to bring a user yearly updates on maps, the 2595LMT offers you four map updates a year, free for life and, unlike more expensive manufacturer-offered units, will watch the road ahead for you and tell you if there's a bottleneck along your route.

Further, the Garmin 2595LMT has a feature that many other navigation units don't offer, voice command recognition. Once you have trained the Garmin to your particular voice you can tell the route you want to take and it will churn out an answer. Indeed, as you follow the route it lays out, it also lets you know of any points of interest that may be on the way. The 2595LMT offers more than 8 million points of interest, some of which you are bound to find along your way.

The Garmin is a small unit at 0.6 by 5.4 by 3.3 inches and it weighs in at 8 ounces. Small and light, you can find a mount directly on your dash or windshield. The windshield mount might be the most effective because the 2595LMT depends on the "universe of low orbiting positional satellites (LEOs)" that was established some years ago by the military and opened to private use. At one time, the military, in fact, had software that would provide you a position - there is a position feature available which is a great help if you run into trouble, you can tell the police exactly where you are or, if you on a lonely stretch of road, you can provide a latitude and longitude reference to helicopter rescue team if they are needed - within about 6 meters of your actual location. The public software was good to about 300 meters. Now, the same software that the military uses is available to the public so you can pinpoint your location to within the six-meter circle.

Another interesting point about the Garmin is its speaking voice. As you drive, a voice directs along your route and now Garmin through its updating ability allows you to download various voices so you can customize the voice speaking to you as you drive.

That's just one of the interesting features the over-the-air device provides, another is its TrafficTieup check. Garmin's tieup check software does more than two billion road checks per month to see where there may be tieups and if it finds there is a tieup, it will suggest an alternative route.

If you are in an area you don't know, you can ask the Garmin to go into photoReal mode where it goes into split-screen mode, providing you with a map of your trip and a localized route to your location.

Another nice feature of the Garmin is its Bluetooth integration. It allows you to quickly pair your Bluetooth phone with your Garmin and you can then use it to make your calls, hands-free. It's a nice feature as is the voice command mode that also allows you to give your Garmin commands while you keep your hands on the wheel.

Overall, the Garmin 2595LMT is a great addition to your traveling gear. It has a host of features that get you to where you are going and, if you are interested, may find you one of two places to visit on your way.
