Super unit, 5 out of 5 stars for Garmin nuvi 2595LMT
I just bought this and I love it. I like the voice activated command. A fun part is that you can customize the vehicle that shows on your screen. Garmingarage has tons to choose from. They also have custom voices as well. Just plain fun. The real reason I bought it was for the new junction views. They are so much better than the old ones especially if you are in a congested area where the roads get confusing. This is a big step forward for GPS. With the bluetooth too and lifetime maps and traffic, this is a great price for a great unit.

A good one, 5 out of 5 stars for Garmin nuvi 2595LMT
My first Garmin was the nuvi 350. It was great in many respects and was so far ahead of the competition when it was released that it felt like a revolutionary device. Since then I must have tried four or five new nuvi models. Very few were as good as that early 350 model and most of them, except my current 660, went back to Amazon.
The 2595LMT brings back some of the good memories I had when I first got the 350. Finally, this thing feels fast. Fast in searching, typing, and map drawing. It is an enormous improvement in the one area that has bugged me. No matter how slick looking and thin the nuvis have gotten, the interface felt SLOW and ancient. No more.
In terms of route selection, I will update my post as I use it more. My 660 chooses odd routes at times (yes, i disabled all the traffic re-routing (absolute garbage)), I hope the 2595LMT chooses more straightforward routes.
Voice control is pretty awesome. When you search by city, it helps a lot to say the city and state. It seems to do well on recognizing Spanish names. La Cañada is a tough one and I couldn't get it to recognize the name. Although as I type this maybe I should try "La Canada Flintridge" since that is the proper name for the city. One suggestion I have is if it comes up with a zero on a search name it should just list cities that are w/i a 100 mile radius or even slicker would be if you could tell it to find the cities within say 50 miles of another city. So if you say to the nuvi "cities NEAR pasadena california" then it would show a list of the cities around pasadena, la canada would be one of them. I don't know if this is just a novel feature that I will quickly get bored of or whether this is a game changer. Time will tell.
One gripe about how this and probably many of the newer nuvis plug into the car charger. I loved the fact that on my 350 and 660 I did not have to mess around with a separate power plug. The power input was integrated into the mounting clip. Brilliant. Well, now when you want to remove the nuvi from its stand, it involves two steps- unclip the nuvi from the stand and then unplug the usb/power cable. Cost savings move, but it makes it a pain if you like to hide your nuvi when you park your car.
