Great GPS, NUVI 3590LMT

Comments about Garmin nuvi 3590LMT 5 inch High Res GPS Navigation System w/ Lifetime Maps & Traffic:
I've had two other Nuvi's (310, 765T) before this one. I liked both of those units before upgrading to the next. Same thing here. I rally like this new 3590LMT. The maps look great, start up is fast. I just took a 2000 plus mile trip with it and I am glad I did the upgrade. Some people complained about the screen glare. But it was mostly a non issue for me. The unit did shut down and restart a couple of times out 40 hours plus of use on the trip. It normally was very stable but it did the re-boot thing while I was selecting items on screen. Once it did it when I was getting details on a POI. I read about the unit doing this but from reading previous owners reviews and this is a big improvement from before the last software up-grade. Don't get the wrong idea I did a lot of button pushing and selecting and the unit responded as expected. It only rebooted twice. And came back without loosing the current trip info. I expect this issue to lessen with each software upgrade in the future. I really like zooming and panning the map using the touchscreen. The unit redraws fast and the map looks great. I like the 3D maps also. Overall very happy with it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is absolutely the best GPS I have ever owned. I like the ability to speak my destinations and addresses to the GPS and it finds my route automatically. Also, it has a faster processor so calculations are much quicker than before. I highly recommend this GPS for the best hands off navigation experience.

NUVI 3590 LMT a mixed blessing
By The Big Guy
from Marina Del Rey
Product is very nice and user friendly ... Battery does not seem to charge to 100% and it does not come with a AC charger incl. Voice recognition on new places is not very good but works well with saved places ... Love the reccomended lane feature as well as the split screen at interchanges

Garmin Traffic on this unit is HORRIBLE!
I loved everything about this unit EXCEPT TRAFFIC! The traffic on the roads are shown in different colors BUT when your route is displayed in a pink line, it COMPLETELY covers all of the traffic colors! I had to cancel my route in order to see the traffic and the re-select my route again. With an advanced display, this is total garbage from Garmin. My 10 year old $150 garmin does a better job on traffic! Also, with a huge display, the traffic colors are so small when zoomed out, you can't tell if the traffic is the east bound or west bound lanes! You MUST zoom way in to see the different sides of the freeway. Again, my 10 year old garmin does a better job at this!! I ended up returning this unit ONLY because of the traffic issues. I would NOT recommend this to anyone who needs to use the traffic information on their GPS.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

nuvi 3590LMT 5 inch High Res GPS
About Me Casual User
Works much better, faster, more information on screen, than my old Nuvi 310. And no more irritating "R E C A L C U L A T I N G" when you vary from the directed route. It just changes the map accordingly and redirects.

This product worked incredibly on my recent trip. Very accurate. Traffic feature was right on. I wish it had a little better notification when turns are getting close. I highly recommend this product.
