Garmin Nuvi 3597LMTHD Black GPS Navigation System, Model 0100111800
The Garmin nuvi 3597LMTHD is Garmin's flagship GPS device for 2013. With the best in navigation technology, traffic updates and user interface, the 3597LMTHD will get you where you're going as quickly and easily as possible.
High-Definition GPS Display With Information Overlay
With a high-resolution 5.0" display, you'll easily see all pertinent driving data with just a glance. Information, including the current speed limit or upcoming services, surrounds the main map and gets continuously updated as you travel. HD Digital Traffic is Garmin's most comprehensive real-time traffic solution, sending updates to the 3597LMTHD GPS up to every 30 seconds, so you'll never be surprised by congestion. And free lifetime map updates ensure your GPS unit will always have all proper routes available.
Garmin Real Voice Turn-By-Turn Directions, Voice Control and More
While the Garmin nüvi 3597LMTHD presents you with lots of information, controlling it is easier than ever. Supporting the "pinch and zoom" gesture of smartphones, zooming in or out on the map is easier than ever. If you'd prefer to keep both hands on the wheel, the 3597LMTHD also features voice control, so you can simply speak your destination. What's more, this nuvi GPS unit can answer you back, thanks to Garmin Real Voice. This feature dictates turn-by-turn directions to you in a realistic voice, directing you to your route by using recognizable landmarks and traffic signals instead of hard-to-see street names.
Crisp, High Resolution Display
nüvi 3597LMTHD has a 5.0" high resolution display with “pinch and zoom” capability, so you can quickly get a closer look at any onscreen information. Dual-orientation capabilities allow you to use nüvi 3597LMTHD either horizontally or vertically.
Detailed Maps with Free Updates
nüvi 3597LMTHD arrives loaded with detailed maps of North America. With free lifetime¹ map updates, your routes are sure to reflect the most up-to-date maps, POIs (points of interest) and navigation information. New maps are available for download up to 4 times per year, for the life of your device, with no fees.
With so much data, nüvi 3597LMTHD makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs such as businesses, stores, restaurants and other destinations. nüvi 3597LMTHD arrives preloaded with POIs, so there’s no need for you to enter that address information. Just select one — or many — and navigate there, quickly and easily. You also have the ability to add custom POIs to your nüvi 3597LMTHD.
The Best of Our Traffic Solutions
HD Digital Traffic is our best traffic solution. HD Digital Traffic receives updates up to every 30 seconds, making it up to 10 times faster than other traffic systems. That means, driving 60 mph, your nüvi 3597LMTHD is able to receive traffic messages up to every half-mile. On the road, a few seconds’ notice can save minutes or even hours of delay.
HD Digital Traffic has a greater coverage area to include interstates, highways and secondary roads — in fact, up to 3 times more side road coverage. HD Digital Traffic has the capacity to receive significantly more traffic messages. That valuable information can help you decide whether to stay the course or find another route. HD Digital Traffic is dedicated traffic information and it’s free — no distracting advertising and no subscription fees, ever.
On the nüvi 3597LMTHD, traffic alerts appear to the side of your map, so your driving map remains onscreen. Traffic messages are spoken, too. Garmin Traffic is voice activated, so it responds to spoken requests. Garmin Traffic can give details about the situation, such as how many minutes of delay to expect and if there are any possible detours. It can even confirm whether or not you are on the fastest route.
Lifetime traffic² entitles your nüvi 3597LMTHD to receive free traffic information for its entire useful life.
The Power of Your Voice
nüvi 3597LMTHD has the luxury of voice-activated navigation. Speak, and your device intelligently responds; your hands can remain safely on the wheel. Of course, you can also navigate using the touchscreen interface.
Garmin Real Directions™ with Garmin Real Voice™
nüvi 3597LMTHD redefines “spoken turn-by-turn directions” with Garmin Real Directions, easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a friend, using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. No more stress from trying to read street names. Garmin Real Voice is refined speech technology that sounds more like a natural, friendly voice. Garmin Real Directions and Garmin Real Voice are features that are only available in our line of GPS navigators.
Sync a Bluetooth-enabled device, such as your smartphone, to nüvi 3597LMTHD for hands-free calling through its integrated microphone and speaker. Safely stow your phone in a glove compartment, pocket or purse and still make and take calls without moving your hands from the steering wheel or your eyes from the road.
Smartphone Link Compatible
Smartphone Link is a free mobile app that connects your nüvi 3597LMTHD with your Android™ smartphone. When paired, your nüvi 3597LMTHD can use your phone’s existing data plan³ to share information — such as where you parked, POIs and your destination.
Smartphone Link also gives you access to Garmin Live Services⁴, useful real-time information such as weather and traffic conditions. Garmin Live Services are available free and by subscription.
Comprehensive Driving Guidance You See and Hear
Active Lane Guidance with voice prompts prepares you to drive through an exit or interchange with confidence. As you approach, an animated model uses brightly colored arrows to indicate the proper lane needed for your route; a friendly voice offers additional help. Bird’s Eye junction view offers a detailed view of interchanges, looking down as if from overhead. photoReal junction view realistically displays junctions and interchanges along your route, including the surrounding landscape. Brightly colored arrows indicate the proper lane to drive. nüvi 3597LMTHD also depicts real road signs as they appear along your route.
With its elegant styling and ultra-slim profile, nüvi 3597LMTHD reflects a refined aesthetic that suits the interior of any vehicle. A powered magnetic mount securely holds and charges your nüvi 3597LMTHD as you drive.

¹If you purchase a nüMaps Lifetime subscription (sold separately or bundled together with certain GPS models), you will receive up to 4 map data updates per year, when and as such updates are made available on Garmin’s website, for 1 compatible Garmin product until your product’s useful life expires or Garmin no longer receives map data from its third party supplier, whichever is shorter. A product’s “useful life” means the period during which the product (a) has sufficient memory capacity and other required technical capabilities to utilize current map data and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. A product will be deemed to be out of service and its useful life to be ended if no updates have been downloaded for such product for a period of 24 months or more. Unless otherwise stated, the updates you receive under the subscription will be updates to the same geographic map data originally included with your Garmin product when originally purchased. In some instances, your Garmin product might not have sufficient memory remaining for you to load an update to the map data, in which case you will need to either (a) select reduced map data coverage for your updates, or (b) purchase separately a microSD™/SD™ card (if and as applicable to your Garmin product) and load all or a portion of the map data coverage for your updates to the card and insert the card into the microSD/SD card slot contained in your Garmin product. If neither of the measures in (a) or (b) can be used to address your product’s lack of sufficient remaining memory, then Garmin may conclude that the “useful life” of your product has expired. Garmin may terminate your nüMaps Lifetime subscription at any time if you violate any of the terms of this agreement or your subscription. Your nüMaps Lifetime subscription may not be transferred to another Garmin product.
2FREE lifetime traffic updates may not be transferred to another person or another Garmin product. Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. Traffic content not available for all areas. See www.navteq.com/rdstraffic for traffic coverage areas.
