Product Details

Garmin Nuvi 2497LMT GPS Navigation System, Model 0100112430

Features:

Bright Display
nüvi 2497LMT has a bright 4.3" display with dual-orientation capabilities, for use horizontally or vertically.

Detailed Maps with Free Updates
nüvi 2497LMT 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 2497LMT makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs such as businesses, stores, restaurants and other destinations. nüvi 2497LMT 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 2497LMT.

Garmin Traffic
nüvi 2497LMT features Garmin Traffic to help you spend more time on the move. With Garmin Traffic, your driving map remains onscreen at all times. Traffic alerts appear to the side of your map and messages are spoken, too. 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. Garmin Traffic is voice activated, so it responds to spoken requests.

Lifetime traffic² entitles your nüvi 2497LMT to receive free traffic information for its entire useful life.

The Power of Your Voice
nüvi 2497LMT 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 2497LMT 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.

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 2497LMT also depicts real road signs as they appear along your route.

More Information at a Glance
nüvi 2497LMT keeps your driving map onscreen at all times and additional information appears alongside. For details, simply ask or touch the screen. As you drive your route, Up Ahead constantly informs you of nearby services, including restaurants, fuel stations, hospitals and stores.

nüvi 2497LMT displays speed limit, current speed and accurate time of arrival. With a quick glance, you can read the name of your current street. nüvi 2497LMT also shows school zone warnings.

One-stop Device Management
Use Garmin Express to keep your nüvi up-to-date. Garmin Express makes it easy to update maps and software, transfer favorites to and from devices, and install free custom vehicles and voices.

Footnotes:

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. A traffic receiver’s “useful life” means the period during which the receiver (a) has the required technical capabilities to utilize current traffic data service and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. Traffic content not available for all areas. See traffic coverage areas.

³User’s data plan charges, if any, will apply. Contact your mobile service provider for more information about your service plan’s data and roaming rates.

          Great navigator

          By Dwitham

          from Alexandria, VA

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Easy to use
          • More Realistic Directions
          • Quick Start

          Cons

          • More Screen Icons

          Best Uses

            Bought this updated Garmin to replace an older model, and I'm truly glad I made the switch. The 2497 acquires sats quickly (even indoors, although somewhat degraded) and the realistic directions ("Turn left at the light" "Take the next right") are very helpful in congested situations, such as around DC where I work. The next exit info is a plus, as it keeps you from diverting with only a vague notion of what's ahead. The screen can seem a little busy compared to older models, just takes a little getting used to. Overall, a great product.

                • Street Address 1st

                Best Uses

                • Getting Around The City

                I love my nifty new Nuvi. The new upgrades really make sense, especially the split screen feature and the speed limit notification. They've even corrected most of the faulty pronunciations. I haven't used voice recognition yet, but I probably will at some point.
                The only criticism I have is that the street number field is first instead of the city, but I guess I will get used to that. So far, it has defaulted to the proper city in almost all cases. I travel a lot locally, and use this for just getting around the city and suburbs, and I can't live without it. I look forward to exploring more of the new features.

                Very good GPS

                By msalazardc

                from Greenwich, CT

                Verified Buyer

                Pros

                • Fast Satellite Sync
                • Good routing
                • Good Traffic Alerts
                • Voice Commands Good

                Cons

                • Nice If It Was Bigger

                Best Uses

                  Driving with this GPS is really good navigation was fast and picture-like renderings of exits are very helpful. Traffic alerts were outstanding and voice commands were generally good, although a little fidgety at times.
                  This GPS would be five stars if it was a little bigger.
