Whatever Happens Care Plan
from £2.50 per month


Whatever Happens for Sat Nav Systems

A Whatever Happens Care Plan protects your sat nav if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

With free Lifetime Map Updates and Traffic, the Garmin nüvi 3597LMT EU GPS Sat Nav has everything you need to get from A to B, quickly.

Truly hands free

The nüvi 3597LMT lets you choose how you want to use your sat nav. Choose between using the 5" multitouch display or the voice-activated navigation to set your sat nav up. Using customised voice commands and menu options, you'll be able to control your sat nav without even touching it – much safer when you are driving.

The multitouch design means that you can pinch to zoom on your maps, providing a closer view. It 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. Connecting your smartphone using the free Smartphone Link app (suitable for Android smartphones 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.

Simple guidance with Real Directions

Real Navigation technology, unique to Garmin, helps to get you through your journey without confusion. Using the nüvi 3597-LMT 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.

Real Voice technology means that your sat nav has a more natural sounding voice, and has realistic images of road signs to make it easy to drive.

Free Map Updates

With detailed 3D maps of Europe you'll never find yourself lost, and 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 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.

Avoid traffic

Stay away from traffic jams thanks to the Lifetime Traffic feature included free with the nüvi 3597-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, ariel images and photoReal junction technology, the Garmin nüvi 3597LMT EU GPS Sat Nav is packed with technology to get you moving in the right direction.
