Garmin nüvi 2597LMT

 

I just bought a GPS Garmin nüvi 2597LMT. Unfortunately it cannot support Cyclops and Safety Cameras. Someone can tell me why it does not support if the model nüvi 2595LMT does?

Any advice for me about this issue?

Thanks!

It's odd

It's very strange. The newer nuvi models (ending in xxx7 and xxx8, I think) can not use the North American Cyclops file. Even odder, these models can still use all Cyclops files except North America.

No one has figured out why this is occurring and Garmin hasn't offered an explanation.

The solution for safety camera data is to use the redlight and speed camera files offered here at The Factory:

These will work for you.

2597 also overestimates arrival time

I, too, replaced a 2595LMT with a 2597LMT. I have noticed that it provides a false arrival time for my typical routing to work in the morning. I typically go before rush hour, so it's not traffic related. When I leave my house, it estimates a 45 minute drive and I routinely arrive in 35 minutes. At first, I thought it was related to the settings, but I checked those and they are the same as what I had in my 2595. I haven;t figured out what causes it yet, but it certainly is not as accurate as my 2595.

If sharcnet starts accepting new repairs, I will probably get my 2595 fixed and abandon the 2597.

What country version is your 2597?

Where did you, or from what country did you, buy the 2597? According to the Garmin website some versions of the 2597, like those sold in Great Britain, apparently do contain the Cyclops speed camera information free of charge.

Keep an eye on the latest speed cameras
nüvi 2597LMT contains our unique Cyclops Speed Camera system, for real-time, direction-relevant and accurate alerts. The full safety camera database is already pre-loaded on your sat nav. However, you can get regular or one-off updates to ensure you’ve always got the latest camera locations, so you can drive safety and legally.

How new is the 2597?

Is your 2597 quite new? I ask because over time, a nuvi learns your driving habits and will adjust ETA times and therefore will get more accurate as the nuvi is used more and more.

The only way to fairly compare two nuvis for things like this is to do a hard reset to each (reverting both back to factory conditions), then compare the two, giving each equal drive times, or better yet, use both simultaneously.

My suggestion: don't abandon your newer 2597 smile

Yes, it is quite new as I've had it about a month. I'm not going to abandon it yet.
