Navigate By Touch or By Voice

It comes preloaded with maps that feature 3-D landmarks and terrain for North America. It also comes preloaded with more than 8 million points of interest (POIs) and offers the ability to add your own.
Avoid Traffic Tie-Ups
HD Digital Traffic is Garmin's best traffic solution. HD Digital Traffic receives updates up to every 30 seconds, making it up to 10 times faster than other traffic systems. That means, driving 60 mph, your nüvi 3597LMTHD is able to receive traffic messages up to every half-mile. On the road, a few seconds' notice can save minutes or even hours of delay.
HD Digital Traffic has a greater coverage area to include interstates, highways and secondary roads — in fact, up to 3 times more side road coverage. HD Digital Traffic has the capacity to receive significantly more traffic messages. That valuable information can help you decide whether to stay the course or find another route. HD Digital Traffic is dedicated traffic information and it's free — no distracting advertising and no subscription fees, ever.
FREE Lifetime Map Updates
With FREE Lifetime Map Updates you will always have the most up-to-date maps, POIs and navigation information available at your fingertips. Map updates are available for download up to 4 times a year with no subscription or update fees and no expiration dates.
Know the Lane Before It's Too Late
Now there's no more guessing which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. Available in select metropolitan areas, photoReal junction view makes unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. When you approach an exit or interchange, nüvi 3597LMTHD will enter split screen mode and show you a realistic depiction of junctions on your route, complete with road signs and arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation. Bird's Eye junction view also is included for a top-down look at upcoming complex interchanges.
Go Beyond Navigation

Share information and Live Services between nüvi 3597LMTHD and your compatible Android phone with Garmin Smartphone Link. nüvi 3597LMTHD also includes Garmin Digital 3D Traffic which delivers traffic updates as often as 30 seconds over the HD Radio system. That's up to 10 times more often than other traffic receivers.
