Voice Activated GPS Navigation
Looking for high end features without the high dollar price tag? The Nuvi 2497LMT will get the job done. A bright, 4.3” display provides you with detailed mapping of North America and also allows for an SD card to be inserted if you are traveling to an area that isn’t already pre-loaded on your 2497 LMT. Over 6 million points of interest provide you with information & directions to businesses, restaurants, etc. quickly & easily. If you are needing to go to multiple places in a day, simply key in the places you need to go, let the Nuvi 2497LMT do all of the work from there and get you where you need to be with the most efficient route possible.
If you are in a hurry to get to a location and don’t have time to type in the address, Garmin has you covered. The 2497LMT offers voice recognition so you can speak your commands and addresses directly to the Nuvi and it will begin routing you. With enough storage space to hold up to 1,000 waypoints, you can save all of your favorite & important locations and have them right at your fingertips any time you venture out. As you are traveling to your destination, your Nuvi 2497LMT will provide you with voice turn by turn directions that not only tell you the direction to turn to but will also tell you the name of the street you will be turning on, helping you keep your eyes on the road. Another feature that Garmin offers in the 2497LMT is Bluetooth. With this, you can keep your cell phone connected to your Garmin wirelessly, and anytime you have a phone call coming in, or wish to make a phone call, simply answer & dial directly through your Nuvi, which will keep you from looking around for your phone as you drive.
Lifetime map updates along with Lifetime traffic updates will keep you in the know about what to expect as you travel. Your lifetime updates come 4 times a year for the life of the unit. Simply download from your computer directly to your Nuvi any new roads or points of interest so traveling into an unfamiliar place isn’t such a bad thing, your Nuvi will get you where you need to be. Your lifetime traffic updates will always come in handy when you’re traveling in a bigger metropolitan area where traffic jams are common. Be alerted on your 2497LMT display when there is road construction or an accident ahead that may delay you getting to your destination on time. In some instances, you will even be provided with an alternate route, insuring your ETA to be right on time. To help ensure you make the proper lane change & exit off of a busy interstate, your Nuvi 2497LMT will not only tell you when to turn but will also display a 3D birdseye view of the exit and lane change ahead, ensuring that you are going in the proper direction. For the best navigation experience and ease of use, the Nuvi 2497 LMT will get the job done.
