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 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 — and it receives free HD Weather, including current temperature and 6-day forecasts (free software update may be required).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.
