Garmin Nuvi 2595 LMT

Post by deckie on Sat Aug 04, 2012 9:29 am


Hi All,

Our old Garmin Nuvi 5000 (Lorry version) has given up the ghost so_sad

So having done a bit of research, decided to order a Garmin Nuvi 2595 LMT (Free lifetime Maps & Traffic)

I know there are “Specials” for Motorhomes but at a price …. I think this one should be fine for us in “Clubby”

Being OAP’s …… violins playing hugegrins ..… we were naturally looking for a good deal.

Argos etc want £209-99 …….

Pixmania are doing them for £155-00 inc P&P ….. not much of a “Brainer” (or Brian-er scratch head ) was it ??

Can’t wait to try out my Cockney accent with the Voice command part hugegrins

Brian

It recognises my Lancashire accent but does struggle with some words "Lancaster" and "Chorley" gave it problems but it will learn smile! (I hope)

Thanks for the info Frank allthumbz

Will have a go at the “Cashback” when mine arrives.

I notice, they say Up to £30 Cashback …… Did our particular one qualify for the Max amount ??

Regards,

Brian

Update so_sad so_sad

Unfortunately I couldn’t get the £30-00 cashback, as “Pixmania” are not on Garmin’s retailer list.

Well done Frank for getting yours from “Amazon” allthumbz

Apart from the disappointment with the £30 Brian, what do you think of it?
Tried the "Voice Command" yet? and does it recognise what you say? I found that it recognises all the "standard" commands OK like "navigate" "up" "down" "phone" etc. but it struggles with my Lancastrian pronunciations of some towns - "Chorley" got it rattled for some reason smile!
The hands free telephoning is good - I can do my E.T. bit and say "Phone Home" and it does! allthumbz

Hi Frank,

Very happy with it’s all-round performance ……

Finds the Sats very fast (so much better than my old Garmin 5000)

The advanced junction ½ pic is very handy.

Have only used the Voice Command part for my favourites so far, and has understood me perfik hugegrins

All in all a very good product and with the free updates, amazing value.

Sticking my neck out and recommending it our members ……

BUT if you want the cashback deal (from an accepted retailer) …. Get your finger out, as it ends soon !!

Brian

Don't have any experience of Garmin units myself but was recently reading a review of the Garmin Nuvi 2595 LMT online and they rated it as the best sub £200 sat nav around.
