Now you can take your favourite TV shows, sports events and films with you everywhere. nüvi 2585TV lets you record them before you set out to your destination. You also can watch live TV, so you're always in charge. Its powerful DVB-T MPEG2/H.264 receiver and antennas give you the best possible viewing experience and coverage, even when abroad.

Beyond Navigation

nüvi 2585TV comes preloaded with our unique safety camera services. You also can personalize your nüvi by downloading custom voices and vehicles for free from the Garmin Garage™. To ensure you know what’s behind you, connect a reversing camera.

The smart mount adds the convenience of easy installation and removal. It also adds intelligence, automatically turning on when you turn on your car, and it remembers where you parked when you remove your nüvi 2585TV from its mount so you can navigate back to your car.

The “Where Am I?” emergency locator provides your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and more, while Enhanced Exit Services tells you what services you’re approaching on the highway.
