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.

Yes it has other possibles such as low fuel and off road. Not sure what low fuel means. Also can set for detours and other road changes such as roundabouts, paved, and such. Has a menu for up ahead that includes banks, restaurants, and gas. Did not see rest stops. I love this model. Fits in my center CD box area.
