👤The misconception is that everything you need for traffic is in the box. The product manual does not make it clear that it does not come with a car charging accessory. The seller must have seen other reviews. Shame on the seller for not making it clear. The "TA10" is packaged with many units, straight from the manufacturer. The nuvi 2589 is almost the same as the nuvi 2589, but there is no HD Traffic. It works with theTA10 I rigged the car and swapped the cables because I suspected a bad receiver. The non-HD traffic 2589 worked with both the TA10 and the HD traffic. The HD traffic 2599 gave the same message to both of the charging points. I am upset. The correct car charging accessory is not listed in the manual. The Gtm60 is a car charger that will allow HD traffic to function. The manufacturer and the seller are both irresponsible.
👤Don't buy this gps device from Amazon. Apparently they received a lot of faulty devices. I spoke to a representative of the company. The product is known to be faulty yet neither Amazon nor Garmin did anything about it. Instead of pulling the devices, they just keep selling them. Many functions of the gps device are non-operational because the power supply cable does not work properly. Again, do not buy this product. This product should be removed from the product line by Amazon. Several other Garmin devices had the same issue, as was also rattled off by the Garmin Rep. It's a sad day. I have held the company in the highest regard, but this has changed my opinion. Any company that doesn't do anything about a faulty product is wrong. It's so much for company integrity... Both Amazon and Garmin are failing in that area.
👤Another person is dead on arrival. I've ordered a unit from sellers before on Amazon. All three were excellent. According to the advertising, the first two were not new. Both of those arrived in shipping boxes with no padding or cushion in them to make the journey easier. Both units were returned after neither would awaken after charging or showing any sign of life. When the third unit arrived, it was the same packing as the last two, but it was telling me that the software was corrupted, even though it showed some sign of life after charging it. The cord supplied with the unit was "charGING", not a "DATA" cord, and the unit couldn't be updated through the express program. You can buy a data cord. The unit showed a sign of life, downloaded and such, but then all data vanished and the unit wouldn't leave the entry screen. If you're in the middle of the Arizona mountains, it's not a good thing. If you get one of these, you will need to buy a data cord if you want to register and update the maps.
👤We traveled 2500 miles across 4 states on a two week trip. The 2589 lmt did a great job during the trip. It is the perfect screen size for a vehicle gps. It's big enough to give you a lot of information. Not large enough to be in the way. The glare from the screen was mentioned by other reviewers. I didn't think this was an issue. The reflection from the screen did not affect what I could see or do with the Nuvi. I almost let the reflection issue affect my decision on whether to buy this one or one with a non-reflective screen.

This device is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X.
👤I dislike this device. Disappointed with the navigation. 1. The designated Class truck routes are not shown. 2. It doesn't show the bridge heights. I need these two items in my gps device. The information is on my maps. The reviews of the gps manufacturers were not as good as the reviews of the other manufacturers, and I believe that the information and technology is not available with any gps manufacturers. The database will be very successful if a product is created with it. The fit and finish is what I like. Thank you, but you are disappointed.
👤The features are great, the display is great, and the main part is great. The navigation on garmins is terrible. It will usually bring you a longer way even with the shortest route applied. In truck mode, even with the size of the vehicle entered, it brings you down a lot of dead end roads. There is no need to purchase a separate unit for the better maps. This may be the case in Maine and New Hampshire, but not in other states.
👤The gps works well. I like that you can set it up for doubles and triples, I also like that it works better with my phone, and that it's easy to use with my phone. So far, it is very accurate.
👤This is a good tool for drivers. I was going to be delayed by 2 hours in Idaho due to construction. I was routed around it. It will warn you about accidents, construction, objects in the road, and other things that have been reported to it. The speed limits in Montana are not correct. It shows 70mph for back highways and 65 for freeways, but it has a state border off by about 4 miles. It needs some map updates. It will show you the weather in your route. A gps is not a rule. Use common sense and always read highway signs.
👤I would like to see a version of the maps for commercial trucks. The only way I could use a gps device was with my phone. The product does not recognize new roads or buildings. There is nothing in the new warehouses according to Garmin. That's where the maps come in. In Phoenix AZ, a new stretch of loop 202 going south is open since December, but not for Garmin. I wanted to get on I55 North from Damen Ave but my new $300 gps said "No trucks", which is not true. The navigation system should be less than $75. It is important for Garmin to keep its maps up to date. I spent $300 and updated my maps to be able to find a warehouse that was built more than a year ago. I'm planning to return the gps because it's not very accurate. I'll check out a Rand Mcnally, hopefully it's better than the other one.
👤This gps has gotten me in trouble with taking me down places. If I worked days I would be screwed at times from using this gps sent me down roads with cars parked on both side in residential areas.

👤The unit arrived on time. It was easy to set up. There are a lot of things to like about this. This unit is one of the few that can accommodate a car, RV and Truck. You can set it up for RV/truck and enter all the important information, including length, weight, and weight restricted bridges. It warned me that the bridge on my route II was well below my height restriction. It's very helpful when one encounters unforeseen detours. If you deviate from the units chosen route, it will quickly figure out that you chose a different route and it will calculate from that point. Unlike my car, that insists that you make a U turn and follow its stated route regardless of what you want. There is a Windows browser that will allow you to do internet searching on your phone. I haven't tested this. If you're interested, it plays music and videos. The only negatives I found are 1. Updating maps might be a problem for MacONLY users. I checked in with customer service to update my maps and received a nice response that made perfect sense and assured me that I had the latest maps. Customer service seems to work well. Well, but. I haven't tested it yet. The programing does not include a GO home button. It is possible to put your home into the Favorites, but in my case there was not enough room to enter the complete address, which makes it look incomplete. Adding a Proper GO HOME button would allow for a few more characters. This is a good deal when you compare it to units that cost more.
👤I bought this for my class. I like the features of the unit period. The map ware here is outdated and has been upgraded. Don't buy it because it's useless. Get a navigation device. Save yourself the stress. It has nice features. One site it directed me to was a free map upgrade site which turned out to be a major scam. Not happy.
👤I had to drive to Lakewood, CO for two weeks. The device arrived before the expected date. I was surprised by the features, updated maps, settings, on-road navigation, modifying routes, alternate directions, Facebook, cell phone connection, etc. Performance quality distinguishes performance in cutting through confusion and excel in tedious searches. The device was an important contributor to the success. I always try something new. A+.
👤The Ohrex gps was bought to replace the old one which could not be updated due to low memory. I was attracted to the large screen of the Ohrex model, and the reasonable price, and assumed that the electronics would be common between gps's these days... We followed the directions in the manual and went for a drive in our hometown after we received the Ohrex gps. The Ohrex was not as accurate as our old one. When traveling to large metropolitan freeway areas, we use our gps to help us negotiate large lanes of traffic that are full of other vehicles. During our initial test of the Ohrex, it missed our city hall address by 5 blocks and took us to the wrong side of the building due to one-way streets. We might have become lost if we had traveled in an unfamiliar city. I've never heard a voice say to take a "slight left turn" on the highway approach to a town. Left turn. What is a light left turn? When entering the town on a state highway, the Ohrex directed us off of that HW and routed us through a tight residential area. I didn't care for that at all. The clock wouldn't re-set to the correct local time even if I used a different time zone. I don't like to complain, but I wouldn't trust the gps to take me through an unfamiliar metro area. I just ordered a big name gps through Amazon, hoping it will be the same as the older one we can no longer use.

👤It's functional for what it's worth.
👤The touch screen worked well, but it wasn't good.

👤Went on our first trip with a gps navigator. The trip was to the Hill Country of Texas. On the first day, the RV was filled with gas and turned on. It had a clear picture and an easy to follow indicator. We were familiar with the area and started asking questions. We paid five hundred dollars for the thing and assumed it knew what it was doing. We passed the same gas station an hour later. We decided to travel a bit and give the Navigator a second chance because we knew the route to our destination. It was once again sending us to unknown places, and not in the direction we wanted to go. The Garmin was given another chance. We were completely dependent on the Navigator this time. After an hour of right and left turns, we were back where we started. That's all it took. We used a phone app to take us to where we were going. We decided to program the phone app. They were at odds immediately. We followed the phone app because of our lack of confidence in the Garmin. The phone app took us directly to where we wanted to go when the Garmin tried to take us on strange roads. The driver of the vehicle will never make it unless they use a similar device.
👤I like the large screen and the unit speaks clearly, usually getting the names of streets right. It does a good job of notifying people when there is a reduction in speed limit or a school crossing. It seems to work well as a gps, but it does not learn. I have been using it to drive to and from work. The route is the same every time. The most direct route is via city streets, but the RV-890 always directs me to the interstate highway. The RV-890 seems incapable of learning my habits, like the Tom Tom gps did. -- It takes a couple of minutes for it to fully load, but it boots up quickly. It acts more like a computer than a gps. When touching the screen, be careful to be still and precise. It is difficult in a vehicle. -- It is not possible to make a different vehicle meme. The cars are all blue. As my truck is red, I am using a red triangle as my car. I haven't used it with the trailer yet, so I can't comment on its usefulness.
👤Great product! It is easy to program. We got to and from our destination in a motor home. Our directions were correct. We have no issues going down roads or under bridges with our RV's height or width.
👤The gps is a 4.5 but the customer service and extras are a 1 so I had to give this a 3. The gps is very nice. There is a big screen with lots of information. The biggest complaint I have is it doesn't hold a charge very long which would not be a problem since you can use the gps while plugged in. I was able to use the phone charge that I had. The seller has not responded to my message about the car charge.

👤The manual of How to Turn theGPS On, Download, whatever it needs, has no instructions. I held the button at the top of the gps but nothing happened. I clicked on the USA maps link on the website and it took me to a zip archive of 4.26 gigabytes on my Mac hard drive. It took about 5 hours. What should I do with this zip archive? I have had my Mac plugged in for the last two hours and it just keeps flashing blue lights from left to right. The manual doesn't explain why this is happening or what to do if it happens. The gps didn't seem to have any maps loaded when I turned it on.
👤Works well and for a good price. The touch screen works well. Load times are not very long. The mount works well and stays where it should once it is tightened down. It is possible to use a micro sd card to play music or listen to radio. There are a few games and a calculator in it. It doesn't say street or highway names, instead it says things like "turn right in 100 feet" or "get off the highway in a quarter mile" which can be easier to follow. It can be used to find places you have been to before. The ability to change the route is one of my favorite features. It has the ability to adapt to any mode of transportation you have available. The screen is large and bright. The speaker is loud enough to hear music, but there is an option to plug it into the car stereo to hear it better, but I can hear it by myself. It has worked every time, so far it hasn't gotten confused about where I am.
It's easy to use a gps navigator. The maps are easy to see. alternate routes are suggested by the traffic company. Yes, the backup camera is compatible with BC 30 or BC 40. Voice activated and ability to pair with a compatible phone. Notable historic sites and the U.S national parks directory are part of the HISTORY network. Without a computer, built in wi-fi for map and software updates.
👤I used a cellphone as my primary navigation tool and purchased the DriveSmart 65. The cellphone navigation systems are great, but I didn't like the convenience of the stand-alone units. I didn't like the fact that the navigation apps weren't easy to see when I manually used the phone for a phone call. There are two more Unless you use a different app or download offline maps from the internet, there's no navigation when you don't have cellular coverage. There are 3 more I never found the offline maps to work for me, there was always a problem with resolution that I could not resolve. Offline mode was not always used to work in general. I tried some of the other free offline navigation apps, but they seemed to be behind in updates, and did not seem refined, leaving me with a slight but ever present apprehension in my mind. I didn't like the small screen size when in portrait mode, even though I had an iPhone Plus. There are five The navigation app on my cellphone ran in the background and was not visible to view. I didn't see all of the trip info functions that the vehicle navigators offered. The app navigators had the same trip info, but it was hard to see. The DriveSmart 65 was more expensive than the 55, but the extras screen real estate was worth a few extra dollars for me. It is hardware. The screen is beautiful! Great resolution and bright colors. The brightness is turned up all the way. The 6.9 inch is the perfect size for me since I like to have all of the trip data functions showing on the screen at all times while allowing for ample space for the map/ navigation which is the most important part. The screen seems to be made of glass, but I am not sure if it is scratch resistant. The frame has a minimal amount of bezel which adds to visual appeal but makes accidental touches easy when trying to adjust the postition/angle of the unit on the mount. The screen is responsive to touch and there is little lag navigating through the menus, as it should be for a device at this price point. The speaker is loud and clear. I don't know what processor is in the unit, but I hope it is an upgrade from last year's model. It is smart to get the best hardware within your means, especially if you plan on keeping the device for several years, to ensure it will be able to effectively run the software updates. I don't like the way the power cord plugs into the back of the device. It would be great if it was plugged into the side or bottom, because it would be easier to mount the device on a desk if the power cord was not sticking out. The mount is standard and works well for mounting on a window, but I have seen it fall off of a vehicle. I bought a friction dash mount from Garmin because it seems to work well for now. I can't state my findings because I haven't had the battery disconnected from a power source for that long. It is very easy to use the software. It seems that the years of production have allowed time for most bugs to be worked out. The high detail map option provides a lot of detail and is helpful in keeping the user oriented from a geographical perspective. When you zoom out with the intent to use it indefinitely, the unit will automatically zoom you back in to the default setting, even though it does not really want you to have full reign on the map. You can have phone notifications for email/text/etc to show on the unit if you sync your phone to it. The option to make and receive phone calls when you sync the device to your phone is available for those that may need it. The unit has the ability to update maps without a computer. After attempting to update the maps 4 times, I got error code each time and the device aborted the process. Maybe it is because my internet connection is not high-speed. It will be great to see if there is a similar issue among other people. The maps will have to be updated with a PC. Conclusions: The device performs well as expected. Excellent native route planning and accurate navigation. The screen is bright and high resolution. It's right in the sweet spot. I am not convinced that the features this unit offers are practical enough to justify the higher price. If the processor is better than last year's model, this is a good value. It was a factual decision. I don't have to use my phone as my main navigation when I have a stand-alone navigator. Happy with the purchase, even though I mentioned some things. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a navigator.
The RV and camping enthusiast needs a navigator. RV navigator with high-resolution 6 95” edge-to-edge display.

You can download the free app to access live traffic and weather.
👤This was what I needed after two nightmare trips up the East Coast of the USA using other map products and even a Truck gps on my phone. This thing is different from everything else I have tried because it allows you to define how much propane you have on board so that it is precise for tunnels. If you use the drive app, the traffic seems to be more accurate. I can't say the unit ever used the built in traffic feature, but it did an excellent job of calculated true time in traffic and actual arrival times. I liked the pictures of the lane and the street signs. I like the driver assistance alert, which is fun when the light is short and you are pulling 13k pounds, and the reminders to turn off propane due to state law. I haven't tried voice recognition yet because it asked me if I wanted to re-route to save 90 minutes when the unit alerted me of a traffic event. I said "yes" and it re-routed my voice. I found the up-ahead feature to be very useful, as it shows gas stations, rest areas and RV parks at every exit up ahead. It made me feel more confident that the truck would make it to the next fuel stop given how much fuel it uses while towing, and it was useful to keep the kids content so they knew when the next bathroom stop was. I can't use software like my built in phone navigation in the future. This is a life saver for an RV. It was well worth the price and saved me a lot of grief on my first road trip. Good job!
👤This is an upgrade from the nuvi 3597LMTHD. I use it to tow a travel trailer and also use it in a high-roof van conversion. The special features for RVs seemed to be a good reason to switch. It was disappointing initially. There are RV specific features and the screen is bigger, but not dual orientation. The user interface seems clumsy compared to the 3597 The internet link is useful, but limited since it only does the ocassional updates. Compatibility with the BaseCamp program is more important to me. I use BaseCamp on my laptop to combine scenic routes, gas stops and friend visits that are not possible with direct navigation. It can be done on the 780, but it's much easier in BaseCamp, where you can sit comfortably with a larger computer screen, access to a search engine and have no battery life limitations. I haven't thought about it yet, but having the link work for everything seems to be a great feature improvement. The RV780 is able to connect to the computer via the mini-usb/usb cable. It works with the Express. Waypoints are recognized by the BaseCamp program and can be transferred. Didn't transfer saved routes. I tried it with internal memory and it works well with the 3597, so I know the file is good. Before purchasing, I checked with Garmin Support and they said that it wouldn't be compatible. The agent I spoke with was knowledgeable. BaseCamp doesn't support the "Propane Tanks" setting in the RV780 vehicle profile, so those have to be deleted on the RV780 for the routes from BaseCamp to load. It's not a fix. The agent said that the propane tank can be re-applied after the routes are loaded. They have known about it since the RV770 does it, but don't have a real solution. The navigation, map, and feature search functions work well despite BaseCamp compatibility. The larger display makes it easier to read the map while driving and the extra resolution makes orientation ok, but the touchscreen seems not to be responsive as the 3597 is. The speaker is loud and clear. The unit is designed to be installed in the vehicle. It takes a counter-intuitive pull on the mount latch to remove it. It was designed to stay on the dash and do as much as possible without a computer. I can see how it's a good idea for a lot of people. I haven't used the app yet. I got a separate gps unit because I'm not dependent on cell phone coverage or data plan charges, but I may experiment and see how useful it is. Back on the road. As I learn more, there will be more updates.
There are options for portrait and landscape mode on the large RV navigator. The size and weight of your RV are taken into account to find the best route. Road warnings to keep you aware of steep grades, sharp curves, weight limits and more. There is a directory of RV parks and services on the website. Control with your voice, and enjoy hands-free calling, and built-in wi-fi for easy map and software updates without a computer. Pre-made street maps for North America have coverage of the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. You need to download the Garmin Drive app for GPX file sharing and access to live traffic, weather and smartphone notifications. The magnetic mount with video-in port accessory is required for the third-party wired camera to see behind your vehicle.
👤I have been using the RV 760 for the last five years and bought this to replace it. The RV 890 is a big step forward. It's not just a bigger screen. The software has been greatly improved, the user interface is more intuitive, the touch screen is more responsive, and the voice recognition is better. The RV 760 had a smaller mount that would lose its grip in warm weather, but the windshield mount on this thing is a beast. The RV 890 has a bunch of new features, including the ability to use Foursquare, which is a big deal, not because I use it that much, but because their database contains many POIs that aren't in the Garmin database. The ability to plan, save and retrieve multiple routes in advance and the ability to modify the unit's suggested route are two of the best new features. It will take a while to try all the goodies. This upgrade was worthwhile.
👤I have a number of portable and built in gps units, as well as a phone, Ipad and laptop. The unit is easy to read and operate after a reasonable learning curve. I would knock it down form perfect for two reasons. The voice recognition doesn't always recognize my voice. The permanent base was used because the suction mount didn't work in my application. You can plan a trip with multiple stops and pick it up at any intermediate stop. The suggested rest stops are based on time and distance. It has lifetime maps, traffic, and the ability to program from your phone.
👤I have been trying to get maps for this device from Good Sam and RV trip apps. Do not spend money on this device because it does not work.
👤I replaced the rand McNally unit because it was old and not up to date. What a difference there is. It's much easier to use the device. I was a bit uneasy when I approached it. It leads me to what I want to do. Buy this one. I don't have any complaints. None at all. George W. Ensley is a FCC licensed tech.
👤I'm hoping I have a bad unit. I'm a fan of the company. After using it for about an hour, my unit failed. It will not turn on anymore. It's going back. The magnetic interface works fine with the 20mm ball packed in the suction cup mount. The magnetic mount requires a 20mm ball and the dash mount requires a 25mm ball. A really bad shipment. It looked new, but it was a bad shipment. I'll try again.
👤I sent it back after I used it for the first time. RV Life is on a designated tablet. I thought the RV 890 would be more user friendly. The RV 890 is a mid-grade device. I spent hours on the device trying to download something. Routes with no luck. As I searched online, I found that other people are having the same problem. Purchase a nice tablet, download the RV Life app, and save money. You will get a better user interface, online and offline mapping and run your favorite music apps. This is not worth more than $500. Sorry!

👤This thing is a quality piece of hardware. It's durable, functional, boots up quickly and works well, unlike some gps units I've had. garmin's maps suck. This thing assures me that my maps are current and up-to-date, but they make mistakes all the time. It tries to send me to closed roads that no longer exist. The biggest flaw with this unit is that it doesn't have a "detour" button like previous garmin gps units. If it wants you to take a road that's closed for roadwork, it's as stubborn as a horse's ass, and will not change its mind. The only way to re-route is to manually enter a different route. garmin, bring back the detour button. It's better than not having a gps at all, but it still has some major flaws that will annoy you.
👤I own a lot of cars. I tried it for a week next to my maps and was not happy with the gps. Without the phone app it won't show traffic. When I received a phone call I didn't like the idea of connecting to my phone, it switched from my phone to the gps. That was making me nervous. I like to deal with maps on the internet for $400. It would be perfect if the bridge heights were known by the maps.
👤I took a few to get used to it. I like the fact that I don't need to hook up to a computer and go through a bunch of steps to update. I have been using for a month and it has been great. Don't leave your gps plugged in all the time, that's a tip I learned from the last one. You will shorten the life span of the battery by burning it up.
👤Can't find addresses on the screen.
👤The best gps I have had. It definitely could use improvement. It doesn't connect to a car, RV, or truck's stereo system to allow the sound of directions to be heard through the speaker system. Once you have downloaded the Garmin Drive app, you can use all of the features on it. The gps doesn't have an auxillary plug area. Sometimes it's hard to hear directions when driving. It's definitely better than my previous units. I would give it 4 stars if it was possible to play directions through the speakers.
👤The product was easy to setup. Sell asked about the item the same day. The service is top notch. Will buy from them again with hesitation.
👤Awesome! I needed a 7” screen. Can not go wrong.
👤I am happy with the device so far. It looks good and he is doing a good job. There is a job.
👤If I want to use this garmin, I have to plug it in all the time, and I don't think I'll buy any electronics from Amazon in the future.
