M2, May 20, 2013 Just bought this GPS as a replacement for a sickened 1490LMT, This one is faster to startup and calculate routes. It has a crisp display even in a convertible. The touch screen is a touch more selective than the 1490, which means less erasing of mistaken letters when typing with the on-screen keyboard. The voice command feature has a repetoire of about 20 functions (except you still have to push a button to mute navigation instructions. I wonder if Garmin thought it too ironic to tell the device to mute itself?). The split screen feature is better than the 'flashcard' effect of the 1490 when it comes to displaying highway exits when navigating a route. On the downside, Garmin Express gets easily confused when loading updates to the 2595. Also, when travelling with the map (not navigation) turned on, the unit shows a very large area, which makes it not helpful for reading street names, etc. along the route. Oh, and must every modern device have Apps? C'mon Garmin, most of the used to be rolled into the Settings feature. Given the $50 price differential, there isn't enough useful additional function compared to my 'old' 1490. I would buy one of those instead of another 2595
André, March 26, 2013 This Garmin is my third GPS for automotive and is yet my best. Easy use and a great help during vacations abroad.
Geppeto, March 16, 2013 Yes the unit goes red on your speed if over the posted limit, BUT come-on, get real. Garmin isn't telling you how fast to go or limiting your speed. Rather providing important info because in Florida at least, every little town is a speed trap. As for the volume issue, I suspect this is a class action issue. I haven't read of anyone who actually gets any volume when their phone is bluetoothed to the 2595. The rest of the phone bits on the 2595 work fine. The ringer is loud and then the unit clearly identifies the caller and driver is able to answer the phone, BUT once the phone is answered, there is such a miniscule volume on the 2595 and none (at least on my phones) on the cellphone, and my solution has been to turn off the 2595 after saying "Hold On" into my cell phone. Once 2595 is off, my cell works as normal. This issue may yet be a killer for me. I have 3 2595's and one was a gift to someone in another country. Also have a couple of GPSMAPs. Take my recommendation but with reservation
MVN, March 13, 2013 I love my new Garmin - however, the only drawback is no hard copy of the owner's manual. Very difficult to find things in an owner's manual which has been downloaded onto my computer. Wish a hard copy was mailed with the Garmin. Could print the manual on computer but manual is about 88 pages. Instructions provided in the box were very vague regarding set up, etc. Had to learn on my own!
