Depending on the older model of Garmin, the favorites may be able to be transferred to the nuvi 2797LMT. All nuvi and StreetPilot models can be transferred from, however the process of doing so will vary from model to model.

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.
