Christmas can be a stressful period, and one of the major causes of stress is all the driving and visiting we all get up to during the festive period. Garmin have the perfect answer for you in the form of the Nuvi 3598LMT-D sat nav. That may be a boring model name, but this feature packed sat nav is one serious piece of kit. Following are some of the features:
- Garmin Real Directions – Turning into street x or y is only really useful when you know the area well, and quite frankly, you wouldn’t be needing a GPS if you were. The SatNav actually gives you real directions, such as turn left on Starbucks, turn right at the cathedral, etc.
- Voice capabilities will also tell you about real time traffic information, and allowing you to ‘voice navigate’ the device.
- Garmin’s Digital Traffic – Traffic updates require no subscriptions, or an internet connected phone. They come direct to you via a DAB receiver in the module.
- Garmin – Express: Free lifetime software and map updates
- PhotoReal Junction View gives you an actual look at the junction you are about to go through. An example is shown in the featured image. This gives you a birds eye view as well as an active lane management guidance.
- 5 inch multi-touch screen.
- Ultra Slim profile.
- Comes with a magnetic mount to easily snap in or out.
- Garmin Smartphone Link means you can sync your phone with the device, letting you make phone calls, browse your call history or your contacts list. It also means that if you have searched for a location on your phone, the place will automatically be located in your SatNav!
- Speed Camera Alerts
It comes with an RRP for £299.99.
