5 out of 5 stars   Best Garmin I ever owned
By StillaJedi on September 21, 2016
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 2598LMTHD 5" GPS with Bluetooth, HD Traffic - Refurb 1 Year Garmin Warranty (GRNUVI2598LMTHDRB)
Pros: Super fast at picking up satellites for GPS. Big Screen, re-routing is faster than in previous Garmin's I have owned. Also the school zone feature is a nice plus when your going into unknown areas, it alerts you one is coming up.
Cons: Speaker Sound is not as loud as in previous units, it could be a tad louder. Screen is big but not as bright as in previous units I have owned.
Other Comments: I have owned about 4 Garmins over the years. This one by far is the most accurate and fastest. My main issue is with the sound coming out of the speaker. Even with the radio on low you have to listen closely to what it is saying to you.

Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 2598LMTHD 5" GPS with Bluetooth, HD Traffic - Refurb 1 Year Garmin Warranty (GRNUVI2598LMTHDRB)
Pros: Functional Voice command actually works! Does what it's supposed to. Looks good Sounds good - easy to understand even though I'm a little hard of hearing.
Cons: Maps aren't all that accurate... missing a few streets around here that are more than a year old. Frequently seems to take you the long way around... maybe it's a setting issue as it really likes to get you on the freeway when the backroad would be shorter.
Other Comments: It was a refurb but looked and operates as if brand new.

Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 2598LMTHD 5" GPS with Bluetooth, HD Traffic - Refurb 1 Year Garmin Warranty (GRNUVI2598LMTHDRB)
Pros: - Faster lock on satellite than older Garmins - Faster route mapping than older Garmins - Love Bluetooth option (older Garmin did not have) - Has HD traffic built in - Seems to be more accurate than older Garmin - Screen more responsive to touch than older Garmin
Cons: - Location of Speed limit and actual speed is not as convenient as older Garmins - When speeding the speed icon partially changes to red. Not so obvious. On older Garmin the speed icon totally changed color -6 plus Gig download from the Internet to update - Garmin are you crazy?
Other Comments: Drove from Virginia to Idaho with new Garmin. Would never go back to old model. Garmin has a winner. Did not true any of the Internet services yet.

3 out of 5 stars   Great device, Garmin navigation remains flawed
August 13, 2015
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 2598LMTHD 5" GPS with Bluetooth, HD Traffic - Refurb 1 Year Garmin Warranty (GRNUVI2598LMTHDRB)
Pros: The device is very well-designed, and well made. Fast route processing, very good graphics. My 3 experiences with traffic information were also quite good.
Cons: I left Garmin 5 years ago because of navigation issues in my region (New York State), and decided to give TomTom a try. At the time, Garmin kept taking me on silly routes (such as driving through downtown Newark to get to Newark Airport), when I could easily see better ways by looking at a map, or just knowing better. Moving to TomTom did make a huge improvement, TomTom seems to navigate the fastest way almost always. By now, I hoped Garmin would have improved the navigation, and I could benefit from other features, especially voice recognition and HD traffic. Well, the navigation is as it was before. I charted 9 routes I know well, and in 7 cases, the new Garmin would do something foolish, often very foolish (as one example, still going thru downtown Newark!). Most of my sample routes were local, I was so shocked at the bad selected route that I called Garmin who politely told me there was nothing to be done beyond manually listing roads I don't like. Well, not good enough! I cannot speak for other regions, but at the end of the day, the main purpose of these device is to navigate intelligently. Garmin did not meet this test for me, so I won't be keeping the unit

Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 2598LMTHD 5" GPS with Bluetooth, HD Traffic - Refurb 1 Year Garmin Warranty (GRNUVI2598LMTHDRB)
Pros: Upgrade to my prior Garmin GPS. Better Lane/Exit Guidance. Screen Size slightly larger. Has intuitive pinch to zoom. Seems to know my normal commute, automatically giving me drive time without routing. Included Map updates. Voice Command. Hands-free Phone Bluetooth. Garmin makes it fairly easy to transfer favorite locations between units. Refurbished seem like new.
Cons: So far HD traffic is not as good as Smart Phone Apps such as Waze.

Review submitted for Garmin 2598LMT HD 5" GPS with Bluetooth, HD Traffic- Refurb 1 Year Garmin Warranty (EMGRNUVI2598LMTHDRB)
Pros: Looks new - no scratches anywhere. Included usb cable, power adapter, and dash/windshield mount Some traffic info available even outside big cities 5" screen very legible for co-pilot, audio instructions very clear to pilot Fast delivery and good service from BuyDig - would buy from again Voice recognition works well
Cons: Traffic info not 100% reliable: accident on interstate had occurred, then "cleared" before we arrived at turnoff for alternate route. We should not have believed the cleared part Bluetooth function does not allow you to play route instruction through Car audio (overriding music). Any cell phone GPS app will do it, why not the mainstream Garmin?

Review submitted for Garmin 2598LMT HD 5" GPS with Bluetooth, HD Traffic- Refurb 1 Year Garmin Warranty (EMGRNUVI2598LMTHDRB)
Pros: The windshield mount is good.The unit turns on and off automatically with the car. It locates satellites quickly. Voice commands work great. I have an accent and it still understands my just fine. Smart phone integration is pretty cool - I can find a place on my phone and then send the address to the navigation via Bluetooth. It recalculates quickly, the arrival time estimation is pretty accurate. I like that, if I know a faster way than it suggesting, and "go off the route", it recalculates quickly and "follows my lead" and doesn't get stubborn like my old GPS that keeps saying "please make a U-turn". It shows the current speed limit, which is pretty useful. Also it shows these pictures of the exit that you need to take and they are pretty realistic. Free map updates and traffic are great. The user interface is interesting - you can see a lot of details about your driving. The info shows up in panels similar to windows on a PC. The screen size is not too big and not too small.
Cons: I have a few minor gripes about it. It shows the estimated arrival time, but doesn't show the current time. When I use it as a speaker for the phone for hands free calling, it's pretty hard to hear the other party. It's possible that I haven't found the way to turn the volume up yet. When I was looking for some shopping center, the "Find Place" couldn't find it by name. But then "Find By Category" found it just fine. The screen is pretty sensitive, but not as good as a smart phone's. The overall feel of the device is more "classic GPS" than an awesome new piece of tech.
Other Comments: This unit also has "apps". They seem useful, but you have to pay for them. That's unpleasant. But you get free maps and traffic and no ADs. so it's a good deal any way.
