Garmin 3580LMT
My Love Hate Relationship
My older GPS being a TOM TOM, having now died on me; I purchased the Garmin 3580LMT the other day. I quickly rushed home with it, proud of my new purchase excited to take it out on the road!
I had high expectations of a newer GPS and it is what I got from Garmin. Wow what a beautiful display 800x400, loved it! The mount setup was ideal, just the way I like it. You can detach the Display Unit from the suction/power and put it away in your pocket when leaving the car for safety from theft. Yet it quickly mounts back on the suction unit when needed without having to fumble with plugging in power cables as on some units.
The Unit itself was very intuitive, the setup and firmware and new map updates on the web were a breeze. The Unit felt great in my hand and was well constructed, satellite Lock On was fast and I found the unit to be very sensitive, picking up some satellites in the house by the window.
I took the unit out for a Road Trip, the Unit performed excellent however I felt it had a few shortcomings. Maybe it is just me but I wanted more for my close to $275 I paid.
Here is what bugged me about the Unit.
When in the Navigate mode the Planned Route, which was in Pink was annoying because I had no way to get rid of the TAIL. What I wanted was to see was where I was going, not where I had been. This became particularly annoying when entering complicated intersections. Quickly looking away from the road to the GPS, all I would see was a Pink Ball of Twine looping around the intersection of where I was supposed to go and where I had been, very confusing! It took that extra second or so to figure out where I was headed which made me feel unsafe with my eyes of the road those precious seconds or so.

Great GPS with big beautiful screen Feb. 29 2012
By J. York - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I briefly owned a Nuvi 3490LMT and found it to be a great GPS. Shortly after I purchased the 3490LMT this 5" model was announced. I returned the 3490LMT and ordered the 3590LMT that very day. I am pleased to report that the Nuvi 3590LMT is also a great GPS navigator.

PROs
---------------------
+ Screen is very easy to see, even in bright daylight
+ Thin for a 5" unit
+ No issues with polarized sun-glasses
+ Snappy user interface; every touch is immediately registered
+ Drag gestures work on most screens
+ Intuitive design, easy to use
+ Removable window mount has a built-in speaker
+ Map and software updates are easy; no registration required
+ Very fast acquisition of GPS satellites
+ Very fast routing and rerouting

CONs
---------------------
- Pricey
- The 5" screen makes this too bulky to fit in your pocket or carry around (compromises!)
- Windshield mount falls on occasion

SCREEN
---------------------
The first thing I noticed about this GPS is the big bright screen. From past experience, I knew that 5" was the right size for me. With a 5" screen, I don't have to focus as hard on the GPS when I take my eyes off the road. This allows me to get my eyes back ON the road as fast as possible which makes the GPS safer for me.

The screen on this unit is among best I've ever seen on a GPS (almost equal to the 3490LMT) and is clearly visible in the bright Texas sun. Even my polarized sun glasses do not interfere with the screen. The screen is really something to behold and is clearly where a lot of the cost of this unit stems from. The reason I say this display is not quite equal to the 3490LMT is because it has the same pixel count but spread over a larger surface. This means the display is not quite as crisp as the 3490LMT. But you'll have to look really really hard to notice the difference!

The unit has an auto-night feature that reacts quickly to changing light conditions so that the GPS is never too bright when driving at night or in a dark area.

The LCD viewing angle seems decent. There is definitely some darkening of the display as you move off to the side. For the primary viewer (the driver), the display will be easy to see even as you move your head around. The passenger may have difficulty viewing what's on screen if the unit is pointed at the driver.

Much less important but still nice is how crisp the screen is. It is a high resolution screen that renders maps faithfully with great detail, even when held close to your face. This makes everything smooth and pretty. Again, this is of questionable value when mounted in your windshield but it does look really nice.

TRAFFIC
---------------------
I haven't had much time to test the included HD traffic feature. It seems like traffic information is only given to you if you're driving on a route. It would be nice if it actually showed you traffic in the area, even if you're just driving without any route set. Surely it could at least figure out that I'd be interested in traffic information on the very road I'm driving on! After I've had more time with the unit I'll update my review with more information on the traffic feature.

From my experience with the 3490LMT, I expect it will tell me when traffic is ahead on a selected route. One thing I wished the 3490LMT would do was tell me about traffic on the road ahead, even if it doesn't know my destination. It does not do that (though neither does the competition as best I can tell).

NAVIGATION
---------------------
I love how quickly this unit acquires my location from the satellites. Within a few seconds after turning on, it knows where I am. My old TomTom often didn't know where I was until I was well outside of my neighborhood.

As with every other GPS I've ever owned, the default navigation view shows the current speed limits. The bad news is the speed limits are sometimes wrong by 5 to 10mph. This seems to be more common in neighborhoods and on lesser traveled roads but I've also encountered this on major freeways. The good news is that you can tap on any bad speed limit shown on screen and a "+/-" button shows up that quickly lets you edit the speed limit. I found myself doing this often after first but eventually the streets I drive most often were all corrected. I wish they could get this stuff right without me making changes but it seems to be a universal problem.

A nice visual cue to help you see your route is that after each turn, the graphical display zooms out to show you more of the upcoming route. After a few seconds, it zooms back in to the previous zoom level. This is subtle but effective in helping you see the details of your route while getting an occasional glimpse of the big picture.

Something that I really like is that you can drag the map around with your finger while navigating: just like you would do in Google Maps on your cell phone. This gives you the opportunity to see what else is around while sitting at a traffic light.

Routing and rerouting has been very fast in my experience. If I miss a turn, the GPS usually has the new route figured out in just a few seconds. Much appreciated during those high anxiety goof-ups I sometimes make!

Another nifty feature is that the 3590LMT learns your habits. If you prefer a particular route home because you know more than the GPS, eventually it starts routing you via the route automatically.

VOICE COMMAND
---------------------
In my experience, the voice command feature is so-so. It hasn't yet been able to find an address for me but it does seem to work pretty well when navigating to my saved shortcuts. I say the command "voice command, go home" and it works fine every time. This could get better with firmware updates. It does seem to be important to be in a quiet environment (radio turned off, windows rolled up) when issuing voice commands. No surprise there. This feature may improve with firmware updates.

MISCELLANEOUS
---------------------
The Garmin update software is very easy to use and works fine. I was pleased that I didn't have to create an account or register with Garmin. I just plugged in my navigator and it downloaded the latest maps and firmware.

Bluetooth works well with my iPhone 5. The sound quality and volume isn't stellar, but people can hear me and I can hear them and it always works, so I am pleased.

So far the firmware has proven reliable. I've never had it crash or hang on me.

The mount to my windshield is fairly secure and stable. It seems quite well made and the screen never sags under its own weight. Unfortunately, the mount has fallen from my windshield twice in 3 months of usage. Nothing has been damaged in the falls, but I find this annoying. This caused me to drop this to a 4-star review.

This unit seems to be a couple of millimeters thicker than the ultra-thin 3490LMT. I'm not complaining about this, but I do wish it was as thing as the smaller unit. Still, it's not thick at all: barely thicker than my iPhone 4.

SUMMARY
---------------------
So far this GPS is shaping up as the best I've ever used. I'm very happy with this purchase. I will continue to update my review as I spend more time with the unit.

UPDATE
---------------------
About 6 months after purchase, the GPS stopped working right in the middle of a 2000 mile road trip. The touchscreen became inoperable and the unit would crash after a few minutes of use. Of course, this was highly frustrating. Garmin support was easy to deal with. Garmin immediately sent me an RMA form and after I sent it back to them, they sent me a brand new 3590LMT. All told, this cost me just under $20 in shipping and a few weeks without the GPS. Probably about as best as one can hope for in such a situation. Hopefully the replacement will last longer!

UPDATE 2
---------------------
A year after my original unit was replaced under warranty, the replacement unit is still going strong. I think this is a great product.

Great GPS ... problems with traffic March 22 2012
By S Kaye - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've had this GPS for about a week. I am very happy with most aspects of this device. Screen and maps are great, better than any other I have seen. Voice recognition is excellent. I only wish more features (such as screen zoom) were available through voice control. Routing has been perfect so far. POI list is excellent as well. Smartphone link is a great idea but incomplete without IOS support.

This would be a 5 star review except for one major blemish. Despite my being in the NY metro area in a spot where Navteq shows "strong" coverage my traffic reception is near useless. In ten hours of driving I have had accurate traffic for less than 15 minutes. A quick Google search shows the GTM-60 traffic receiver/traffic firmware has clearly had problems in the past. What is not clear is whether these issues have been completely resolved. I went through all the troubleshooting and fixes posted on the web (including Garmin's site) and with a Garmin CSR. The Garmin rep said he never heard of a problem with this unit and I could return it(at my expense). I will return the traffic receiver and hope for the best although my gut feeling is that they have still not resolved their firmware problems.

So I am deducting 1 star for the defective traffic feature and 1 star for the 30 minutes I spent on hold to speak with an uninformed and patronizing customer service rep who wasted an additional 45 minutes of my time before agreeing to the RMA (much of that time was trying to convince him that the NY metro area is supposed to have Navteq coverage - he was having some map reading problems).

Garmin Nuvi 3590 LMT: Major disappointment - basic features removed June 5 2012
By briisthemn - Published on Amazon.com
I've had a Garmin Nuvi 360 for a very long time, and have been pretty happy with it, and very happy with Garmin as company, in terms of their customer support, and tech support.

However, my recent purchase of their Garmin Nuvi 3590 LMT has completely changed my view of Garmin in every way.

In the past, when you called their tech support, you got through to someone very quickly, and the person you spoke to was very knowledgable.

I can say with certainty, based on a recent and large sample size, that neither of those things are true anymore.

That's a shame, because Garmin was one of those rare companies that you USED to be able to say that about.

Now, onto to the 3590.

While lots of "bells and whistles" have been added along the way, over the years since the Nuvi 360, unfortunately, for the 2012 model year, some of the most important, at least to me, "nuts and bolts" (necessities) have been taken a way.

TURN BY TURN VIEW
--------------------

When you are in the regular map view, and click the green bar on the top, it puts you into the turn by turn view.

** This view, new for 2012, NO LONGER UPDATES THE DISTANCE (OF THE STEP YOU ARE ON) of when you need to turn.

** So, it can say "MAIN STREET 6.0" (MILES) FOREVER!!!!

** And the 6.0 will never change, no matter how far you drive.

** My Nuvi 360 that is 5 or 6 years old, updated the miles, and my wife's Nuvi 1360 (discontinued) that is 1 or 2 years old updated the miles!

** I like to stay in the turn by turn screen, and use it as my main screen, but that becomes impossible if the distance of the step you are on does not update!

** Who could have possibly thought removing this BASIC GPS FEATURE WAS GOOD IDEA?

** I have spoke to Garmin at length, to many different people, and it was REMOVED ON PURPOSE!

"SPLIT SCREEN VIEW"
----------------------------------------
There is another view available, that I call the "split screen view".

It shows you the map on one half of the screen, and the the next turn on the other.

You can manually call this up by pressing the green button on the upper left of the screen.

** However there is 1 MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THIS VIEW as well.

** It is not PROGRAMMED TO RE-CALCULATE, SO IF YOU DEVIATE FROM YOUR PRESCRIBED ROUTE, IT WILL NEVER ADJUST TO SHOW YOU THE RE-CALCULATED WAY TO GO, IN THIS VIEW.

** On the phone, Garmin tech support says you are not supposed to stay in the view for more than a few seconds.

** How is anyone supposed to know that?

** Why would they make a view that does not re-calculate?

** IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU ARE, THIS COULD REALLY MESS YOU UP!

SPEAKING OF "RE-CALCULATING"
------------------------------
While I'm sure many people found it a little off-putting when their Nuvi, said "re-calculating", it was helpful to hear.

It meant either you took a different route on purpose, or you missed a turn or something.

This unit does not say it, and does not give you the option of saying it.

To me, that is poor, just as all the above things I wrote are as well.

CRASHING
----------

I have only had my 3590 a few months, and it has inexplicably crashed 5 or times. Just shut down, and re-started itself.

NAVIGATION
-----------

Finally, the 3590's navigation is worse than my Nuvi 360, despite the fact all the same preferences are chosen.

The 3590 has me going some of the worst ways possible to places.

I ran both at the same time one day, as a test and Nuvi 360 directions were much better

CONCLUSION
-----------

I have had the most updated software (6.30) and maps since I started using it, so that is not problem.

It was just poorly programmed.

I truly hate the 3590.

My wife's 1390, that is discontinued is better, except her traffic is slower.

A keeper. Good instructions, great graphics, very responsive. May 15 2012
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've returned every GPS in the past 10 years. Regardless of price, I hated them all.

This is the first GPS that I'm keeping. This is a great unit for reducing traveling stress.

The 5" size is perfect. Just like Goldilocks, a smaller screen would be more difficult to see, any larger would block vision and wouldn't fit into my pocket. This is just the right size.

I considered an iPad3 with the navigation app but I felt it was too large and I'd have to mount the iPad below the windshield making driving more dangerous.

Installation and updates took me about 70 minutes from the time I opened the box to the time I downloaded all the maps for North America and updated the unit.

*** What I really like about the unit ***

All major exits have actual photographs so you know exactly what lies ahead of you. As an example, the photo of an exit showed two big electric towers and trees which was exactly what I was looking at.

Lane assist. The unit tells you which lane you need to be in. Some exits on interstates are on the left. When I was driving in the far right lane in heavy traffic I wasn't able to change lanes fast enough so I had to drive miles before I could turn around.

Voice command: I've had units with voice command in the past and the responsiveness in noisy vehicles were awful. This one works extremely well.
I say "Voice command. Home" and it works. "Home" and "Go home" works but "Go Home" is more reliable. When entering an address, speaking in a normal conversational voice works much better than trying to speak robotically.

More reliable maps. When I received the unit, the year old Whole Foods store wasn't listed. After the map update, the store was listed. My old Garmins didn't list major locations that were 5 or 10 years old.

Free lifetime map, 4 times/year! My Garmin from many years ago was a money pit due to the expensive yearly map updates.

Screen is very responsive to touch. Probably on par with an iPad.

If you put your finger on the satellite bars for several seconds, a screen with all of the satellites and their reception strength appears. I found this by experimenting. I didn't find this feature in the documentation. The most accuracy possible is 10 feet. If you're obtaining a much weaker signal and accuracy reduced to 100 feet, then don't expect timely instructions.

POIs have the phone numbers so I can call to see if they're open or make reservations.

Display and speaker volume are automatically adjusted depending upon the ambient light and noise level.

Variety of dashboards. Choose the dashboard style that suits your need. I chose the non-default dashboard since I prefer more information.

*** What I don't like ***

I have no idea why the unit will not provide an audible sound if you're speeding in North America. The European versions do warn you if you're speeding. I don't know if the lack of an audible alarm is due to American law or Garmin's policy but the omission of a major safety feature is very disappointing.

The voice assist gives misleading instructions. For example, it'll say "turn right then turn left." But there might be a few intermediate streets before you need to turn left.

Lack of consistency. Sometimes the unit won't warn you in advance when you need to make a turn.

I wish the unit would give a bit more warning to make a turn, maybe 20% more time so that I could slow down a bit. Yes, you could look at the screen for the turn information but I'd like to be able to view the screen as little as possible.

No red-light camera alert in this model unless you have a Smartphone (I don't) and the information is paid subscription.

Voice quality is poor but volume control is great. Garmin needs to use better speakers.

In practice, the 3-D buildings are useless. In my city, only some building are shown. I've turned it off.

Pedestrian mode is awful. Trying to find my car in a parking lot was a chore. My very old Garmin units would lead me exactly to my car; this gets me only somewhat close even with 10 foot satellite accuracy. I'll try Setting->Navigation->Calculation Mode->Off Road and see if that helps. Finding a location in the city was a chore. Fortunately, the restaurant was only several blocks away so I only had to walk back and forth a few blocks until I found the restaurant. Even then, the GPS depicted me as being fairly far away. I'm in a small city so I don't have the satellite "canyon" effect like NYC.

trafficTrends: No thank you. I'm not giving Garmin my data of when and where I drive, how fast I drive. And Garmin, please stop asking me to share data with you on the map updates. Sharing data with you doesn't help me and probably slows the device down.

Sometimes the behavior is strange. I gave instructions for a particular address. The business was in one of the buildings across the street that had a concrete divider so I couldn't make an immediate left turn. The unit didn't tell me that I passed the business or to turn around; total silence and no screen alerts. To make matters worse, the GPS lost the destination location altogether. This has happened several times.

Another example of weirdness is the unit gave me totally bogus instructions when I needed to make a left turn on a major road. The directions told me to turn into a residential neighborhood and drive in a complete circle and come back to the main road. I saw this same behavior in the Nuvi 50LM.

*** What I would like ***

The ability to have the Faster/Less Mileage option button at more locations such as on the map without having to drill down. Sometimes Less Mileage is faster in the city.

Expanded mileage searching. When I'm looking for POIs or business types, the unit sometimes will only return results within 3 miles or so. Other times, I get results up to 40 miles.

Having an option to allows the unit count down the number of feet before making a turn. The unit will say "Turn left on Maple Street". Problem is that there are a number of streets that are fairly close to each other and no street signs. So that I don't have to look the GPS screen, the unit should say something like "500 feet, 400 feet and so on". I think this would be a great convenience and especially a major safety feature especially on very busy road.

*** SUMMARY ***

While I haven't tried all the features out yet, like Traffic, and I don't have the unit connected to a Smartphone, the unit does a very good job of confidently getting me where I need to go which is the sole reason why I bought a GPS. The voice command typically provides enough information so that you don't need to keep looking at the screen.

Fabulous Garmin 350 LM April 28 2012
By Chocoholic - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is the best Garmin ever. I skipped getting Traffic because reviews were not good for the option. BUT lifetime maps is well worth it. Must have this option!

The 5 inch screen is super easy to see and read. The maps upload quickly when you start up Garmin. The split screen at exits is super helpful. Also, Garmin lets you know which lane(s) you want and the direction you will take. For example, if you have TWO left turn lanes it will show two arrow going left and three going straight and one going right. IF you wish to turn left, the two left turn arrows will be highlighted in dark blue.

You can layer the map with more or less information. For example you can show gas stations/banks/restaurants/favorites or not if you want clean, simple map.

I am very satisfied with this Garmin and highly recommend it. However, DO NOT BUY IT FROM 17th Street Photo. They sent me a defective Garmin and then gave horrible customer service to me. The second Garmin I bought for my husband as a gift was from Amazon. Amazon backs their products with excellent customer service!
