The Best of Our Traffic Solutions

Keep moving with Garmin Digital Traffic – It's FAST, ACCURATE, and FREE².

Digital Traffic provides continuous and accurate updates on the super-fast digital network. It is twice as fast as other sat navs: if there are queues ahead you'll know about them. It will accurately pinpoint any incidents and delay times then give clear and simple directions for alternative routes. With Garmin Digital Traffic you're always in control.

There are no ongoing subscriptions as it is a Lifetime service – simply use out of the box – for free.

On the nüvi® 3598LMT-D, traffic alerts appear to the side of your map, so your driving map remains onscreen. Traffic messages are spoken, too so you're not distracted from the road. With voice recognition (ASR) on this model, Garmin Traffic will responds to spoken requests. You get 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® 3598LMT-D to receive free traffic information for its entire useful life.

It's our most advanced technology yet, but all you have to do is turn it on and go.

New Garmin nüvi Premium Series - For a lifetime of navigation

Keep an eye on the latest speed cameras

nüvi® 3598LMT-D contains our unique Cyclops Speed Camera system, for real-time, direction-relevant and accurate alerts. The full safety camera database is already pre-loaded on your sat nav. However, you can get regular or one-off updates to ensure you've always got the latest camera locations, so you can drive safety and legally.

The Power of Your Voice

nüvi® 3598LMT-D has the luxury of voice-activated navigation. Simply start your destination and your device 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® 3598LMT-D comes with Garmin's unique Real Navigation. This includes Real Directions that guide like a friend, using recognisable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. For example you may be advised to "turn left over tower bridge" or to "turn right after the cathedral". Using prominent milestones even on unfamiliar roads means you're not constantly trying to read street names, making your journey much easier and ensures you're never misled. Along with this you also get a more natural sounding voice and realistic images of road signs.

Bluetooth® Handsfree Calling

Sync your Bluetooth-enabled phone to nüvi® 3598LMT-D 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 application for Android smartphones³. It creates a seamless navigation experience between your compatible Garmin sat nav and your smartphone, enabling them to communicate and share data via Bluetooth. It enables your GPS to receive real time information such as weather, PhotoLive Traffic Cameras, weather and much more4.

It also shares locations with your Smartphone so you can navigate that last mile to your final destination and back to find your parked car.

Comprehensive Driving Guidance You See and Hear

Active Lane Guidance with voice prompts prepares you to drive through an exit or junction with confidence. As you approach, an animated model uses brightly coloured arrows to indicate the proper lane needed for your route; a friendly voice offers additional help.

photoReal junction view realistically displays junctions and road changes along your route, including the surrounding landscape and road signs. Again, arrows indicate the proper lane to be in.

For complicated junctions, Bird's Eye junction view offers a detailed ariel picture of the road network, looking down as if from overhead.

Reddot Design
