This is a newly overhauled unit. NOH units are refurbished back in the Taiwan factory and come with a Garmin 1 year warranty.
They come is plain boxes but other than that they are very difficult to distinguish from a brand new unit. The 1 year warranty also offers
peace of mind.
The nuvi 3598LMT-D is an award winner (Best Buy, Sept 2013) and one of Garmin's best ever sat-nav units.
This is an high end-premium navigation device with a great design and one of the best user interfaces in the business.
There are some excellent features including the new magnetic car mount that grabs strongly to hold the device in place but also lets go easily when you want to take the unit with you. The 5", 800x400 pixel, capactive display is gorgeous. It is multi-touch for pinch and zoom, with very crisp and clear imagery. Thirdly, this Garmin is much more responsive to previous models, the lag between where you are and where the device thinks you are is reduced so the whole navigation experience is substantially improved (no more missing those important turns). Garmin have also gone along way to improve the voice directions by making them more converstaional and the active lane guidance has also been improved to make it easier for you to navigate through complex junctions.
Overall this is a super device and the best I have used by a long-way. It will give you years of quality navigation from a very slick package.
