What other says
This Nuvi includes a great voice command system that is truly hands-free. It isn’t even activated by a button, instead being awakened with a customizable spoken command — by default this is, “Voice command.”
When the Nuvi hears you speak that command, it responds with onscreen and audible prompts that guide you through spoken address input, points-of-interest search, and dialing contacts for hands-free calling. The system is remarkably accurate; I particularly appreciated the almost conversational way that I was able to speak to the device, inputting full addresses in one go rather than wading through a half-dozen prompts.
Having said all of that, the Garmin nüvi 3597LMTHD is a top pick, as long as you are willing to pay a premium for the best, and as long as you understand that even the best consumer GPS devices have yet to solve certain issues while on the road. The Garmin nüvi 2597LMT swaps the capacitive touch screen for a plastic resistive one that isn’t as sharp, the casing is made of plastic instead of aluminum, and it switches to a standard. non-magnetic mount, but otherwise it has the same features and performs very similarly to the 3597LMTHD, but for $130 less. Finally, the Magellan SmartGPS, offers smartphone data connectivity, a cloud-based account, and a similar glass capacitive touch screen also for $130 less, although its interface is far more cluttered and complex.
