Product details

With free Lifetime Map Updates and Traffic, the exclusive Garmin nüvi 2497LMT EU GPS Sat Nav takes all the stress and hassle out of your journeys.

Using your sat nav

The nüvi 2497LMT lets you choose how you want to use your sat nav. Choose between using the 4.3" touchscreen display or use the voice-activated navigation to get your journey off to a start.

Using customised voice commands and menu options, you'll be able to control your sat nav without even touching it – much safer when driving. The display automatically adjusts when it is rotated so you can use it horizontally or vertically.

You can also use the Bluetooth connection to connect your smartphone for Bluetooth hands-free calling while you're driving, helping to keep you safer while you are on the road. Connecting your smartphone using the free Smartphone Link app (suitable for Android smart phones and iphones) allows your sat nav to update with real time information as you are driving, keeping you up to date with weather, cameras and more. It can even help you to find your way back to your parked car, ideal in unfamiliar places.

Real directions

Real Navigation technology, unique to Garmin, helps to get you through your journey without confusion. Using the nüvi 2497LMT Sat Nav is like having a friend in the car, directing you using recognisable landmarks and traffic lights so you can easily recognise where to go. Even if you're on an unfamiliar road, using landmarks helps to guide you without the need to search for street names.

The Real Voice technology means that your sat nav has a more natural sounding voice, and has realistic images of road signs, fitting in more naturally with your driving.

Free Map Updates

With Free Lifetime Map Updates you'll be able to make sure you have the most up-to-date maps for your journeys. They can be downloaded up to four times a year without needing to pay a penny in fees.

It is pre-loaded with points of interest (POI) to select to make journeys simple, or you can add your own points. Thanks to the Free Map Updates, you'll be able to make sure you have all the latest points of interest on your maps.

Avoiding jams

Stay away from traffic jams thanks to the Lifetime Traffic feature included free with the nüvi 2497-LMT. Offering cover for motorways and A roads throughout the UK and Europe, it is simple to steer away from congestion when you use this feature. You will be visually and verbally warned when there is a traffic report. It provides you with details, an estimated delay time and possible detour routes so you can easily avoid problems.

It is free to use, so you won't need to pay a penny in subscription and it is voice activated, making it even easier to use.

With other features such as the Cyclops Speed Camera system, Active Lane Guidance, aerial images and photoReal junction technology, the Garmin nüvi 2497LMT EU GPS Sat Nav is your perfect travelling companion.
