Our Comment

Of Garmin's mid-range systems, the Garmin nüvi 2597LMT has proved to be the most popular as it comes with everything - 5" display, full Europe lifetime maps, Bluetooth, lifetime traffic, lane assist, junction view and so on. There are many options available in this series such as 4.3" displays, different mapping - Ireland & UK only and Western Europe, some with Bluetooth, some with traffic - so it's fair to say there is one for everyone in the audience. My only recommendation is that if you are humming & hawing about the display size, I would go for the 5". It does make a difference and the design of the device is such that it doesn't feel that big so it is portable and will fit comfortably in your pocket.
