GPS usage has never been easier
I have had several Garmin GPS units but this is the best by far. It is easy to use, shows exits and turns well in advance and on split screens so that missing an exit is almost impossible. Perhaps the single best feature of all is the voice command. Now you can speak an address and the unit lists several choices by number. You then select your number (choice) and you never have to touch the unit. Occasionally, according to the noise level in the car, it may be necessary to repeat the command, but other than that, this is a great improvement in GPS voice technology.

Quit debating and upgrade now! Worth the upgrade!
This is my third Garmin product. I upgraded to the larger screen after seeing my brother’s 5” screen. One would not think 4.3” to 5.0” makes a difference; but it does. I spent a week comparing the various models, reading reviews at various sites, and shopping for the best price. I finally narrowed my decision down to the 2595 LMT.
Not only does the 5” screen make a difference some of the other features make using the 2595 a little more fun. One of the cool features is that you can now record and upload your own voice so that you are telling yourself where to go. I had a lot of fun with the “recalculating” part.
I upgraded all of my Garmin products to Lifetime Maps, so I knew I had to have that on my new product. What I was not 100% sure that I would ever use is the traffic feature. Since it was included with the LMT package, I have grown to like it. It is not always spot-on with the traffic flow, but it is close. I wanted to know how that feature worked, and after a little research, the answer was quite simple. Have you seen those signs that say tune to an FM or AM station for traffic updates? That is the primary method the GPS unit gathers traffic information.
I also like the customizable dashboard on the 2595. You choose what you want displayed as you drive down the road. If you pair your smartphone with the Garmin unit via Bluetooth, you can display the temperature as reported by the National Weather Service for the area you are driving. If paired with your smartphone, you can overlay a weather map on the GPS unit. THAT is very handy! You can also display the current time, which is something that I have wished for since my first Garmin device. My current dashboard displays the current time, arrival time, miles to destination, current speed/posted speed limit. Note that the posted speed limit display is not 100% reliable, as the device has no idea if you are in a construction zone, or if the speed limit changed yesterday.
An improved feature is that when the Lane Assist display pops up, it only takes up half the screen leaving the route map displayed on the other half of the screen. I would like to see Garmin add an audible alarm that you are in the wrong lane to maintain your route, especially at some of the confusing interchanges in places like Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham, etc. Naturally, I have uploaded many custom Points of Interest (POI) and a ton of custom vehicles. Since I use the device while driving a bus, I would like to find a POI list of all active railroad crossings, and have the device give an audible alarm ½ mile from the crossing.
I am still experimenting with the many other features included with the 2595. Some I may never use and others I am sure that I will wonder how I ever managed without them. The only partially negative remark about the new unit is that the user interface for navigating through the screens changed and I am still not completely used to it. Again, this is just a matter of being accustomed to the new method of navigating through the different screens.Read full review

Nice upgrade from older models.
I've used it for one trip to and from a location about 300 miles away, and for some running around in an unfamiliar area. It worked great.
There was one time that it powered itself off for no obvious reason (fully charged plus plugged in, on an interstate highway, good weather, clear view of a cloudless sky), but otherwise it performed well.
I like the lane assist display.
The voice activation feature is more useful than I thought it would be. It didn't work very well for addresses (a difficult problem), but worked well for places like a post office or the closest Denny's. A possible future enhancement for Garmin would be to limit the maximum distance when trying to find an address or place. It just insisted that I had to be going from California to Maine when I tried to speak an address that was less than five miles away. I had to key in the address to get any result other than Maine. If I could have said it was within 10 miles, it might have found the correct place.
The maps aren't perfect. It demanded that I turn right (into a brick wall) once when there was no road to the right.
It would be nice if it considered the ultimate destination when calculating a stop along the way. Making a U-turn and driving 20 miles is not much of an option when the second-closest place is 25 miles away and on the route to the final destination. It shows the address of each, but in an unfamiliar area that doesn't help much.
On balance, it worked well and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to a friend.Read full review

The best part is showing the off ramps,
