Dave, April 5, 2013 My new Nuvi 2497lmt meets all my expectations. Now that I'm retired, my travels are so much easier. It's great to be able to just speak to GPS and your destination is entered. I can't wait to get on the road again.
Craig, April 3, 2013 I've had my 2497 for about a month and am very pleased with it so far. My old GPS is a Nuvi 500, so the updates to the Garmin software are useful and intuitive. I like the slim design, the detailed maps and the Bluetooth integration. The maps are very accurate and so far I haven't seen any recommended directions that were really out of the way. I also like the traffic feature, which automatically alerts you to traffic up ahead. My old Nuvi has a "detour" option, which this model does not have. If you quickly exit a highway because of traffic, it seems to recognize this and automatically detour you. Only negative I can think of is that I can't figure out how to sync the master volume and the spoken direction volume.
