Questions & Answers for Garmin - n�vi 2797LMT 7" GPS with Built-in Bluetooth and Lifetime Map and Traffic Updates

Question

What size micro-SD memory card do you recommend for use with the Nuvi 2797?

I don't believe this model has the music and photo storage and playback/display feature of other Garmin models I've had. So I'm assuming the size of SD card should be determined by the size of future map upgrades and waypoint storage needs. So, what would be a reasonable size of card to buy? The 2797 is not listed on Garmin's SD Card size limits web page for some reason.

You are correct that the nüvi 2797LMT would be using the SD card for mapping updates and waypoint storage, as well as additional mapping (such as European maps). The nüvi 2797LMT supports up to a 32GB microSD card. We recommend getting a 4GB microSD card or larger to ensure that you will not run out of space down the road, as our mapping file sizes grow with each new version due to additional content.

Question

Comparison With Garmin nuvi 2597LMT 5" GPS

Compared to Garmin - nuvi 2597LMT 5" GPS with Built-in Bluetooth and Lifetime Map and Traffic Updates, how does this fare? I mean which is better and provides the best bang for the buck?

This model is slightly larger - 2" longer (diagonally) compared with the one I mentioned. This is the only difference I could notice. Is there anything else, as in any extra feature in 7" compared with 5"?

The nuvi 2797LMT and nuvi 2597LMT are very comparable models. As you had mentioned, the nuvi 2797LMT is a larger device, however does not add any additional features.

The nuvi 2797LMT can accept additional mapping (either downloaded directly to the nuvi or to an SD card), however it is not compatible with the Garmin's TOPO off road mapping.
