I was considering purchasing Garmin's brand new Nuvi 3590 LMT to replace my old 760. Does anyone have any experience with this new model or words of advice?

Thanks.

It is good to try it in retailer store, IMO, software changed compare with previous one, especially big screen and heavier than 3790t. But no available for mp3 play, who cares? everyone can listens mp3 via smart phone.

More other's views are summarized

- this unit really cool is the voice command actually works even in noisy situations.. it gets it right almost every time- just speak the address, city and state in one breath;
- fast signal reception;
- bluetooth works pretty far to take hands free calls from your phone;
- lifetime map updates. 4 updates a year;
- it also has real time traffic along with real time photos from cams up ahead on your route;

Suggest you check and compare the differences for the most accurate info, as some features have been removed from some of the later units.

I have a 3490lmt I had thought about getting the larger 3590lmt but could not justify the extra outlay of cash. (£60)

The 3490lmt is my 1st Garmin I used to have a snooper syrius snp-500 but even though its 5 years old it gives more info on what type of speed camera coming your way and which side of the road you're traveling on unlike the Garmin

The Garmin thinner lighter glass screen better battery life.

The screen resolution is great. The multi-touch screen is also great, very much like an iphone screen, and voice command works surprisingly well.

If you say "Voice Command" you can see a list of commands you can say, such as find place, saved, places, or go home. So far the voice recognition is 100%.

The features as advertised all work well, though I would say mine doesn't appreciate a noisy cabin when attempting Voice Command.

But having come from a Tomtom 910, and then the Tomtom 950, I am most dissapointed with the 3590's distinct lack of a couple of features I took for granted with the Tomtoms: Waypoint numbering and directional path of travel, when viewing the Trip Planning's preview.

I have the need to be able to input 20plus waypoints, so once I noted that the new Tomtoms had gone from providing something like 48 waypoints, to only four in the new model/s, and with Garmin offering multiple waypoints, well, that, and offering a "sort" function, I was leaning this way, and after an irreversible accident with the Tomtom 950 on Good Friday, and needing a new "nag" by Easter Saturday, the 3590 LMT was the answer.

But that lack of a numbered waypoint flag makes for a confused trip planning. And no, I have never planned and not previewed/tested the proposed route, nor would I ever do so.

And it's a bugger not being able to Voice Command a multi stop trip. Only basic one stop trips.

But the lifetime maps and traffic are goooooooooooooood.

I have 3490LMT for more tha one year and I am fully satisfied. It is lightweight, thin & with the life time update guarantee. No problem at all (maybe an unexpected restart from time to time)

I have a 3490LMT also and recently upgraded to the 3590LMT because the 3490 occasionally reset itself while driving. More importantly, though, it would take up to 20kms to calculate a Detour.

So far, the 3590 is performing perfectly.

Have had the 3590lmt since march and not one single problem. Screen is much easier to see/read than the smaller 765t I also use occasionally.
So far a very reliable unit as per the 765t which is 3 years old.

Hi there!
Based on your postal code I see we are in the same city, Calgary,Alberta.
I just purchased this unit and I'm quite pleased with it but compared to my old Magellan 1440 the "Search by Intersection" is really bad, almost useless.
Also, the traffic information in Canada in general, Calgary in particular is also useless. Yesterday I followed its suggestion to take Blackfoot South when leaving work but the traffic on Blackfoot was backed up big time because of a crash.
In my opinion, if you don't pair this unit with a smartphone is not worth the money. Don't get me wrong, the interface, the navigation the build quality are all good but there are other much cheaper units which will take you from A to B as well.
If you really want to use Live Traffic info I think a TomTom would be the way to go...

Cheers:)

Nelu
