With free lifetime¹ map updates, your routes are sure to reflect the most up-to-date maps, POIs (points of interest) and navigation information. New maps are available for download up to 4 times per year, for the life of your device, with no fees.
With so much data, nüvi 2797LMT makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs such as businesses, stores, restaurants and other destinations. nüvi 2797LMT arrives preloaded with POIs, so there’s no need for you to enter that address information.

nüvi 2797LMT features Garmin Traffic to help you spend more time on the move. With Garmin Traffic, your driving map remains onscreen at all times. Traffic alerts appear to the side of your map and messages are spoken, too.

It can even confirm whether or not you are on the fastest route. Garmin Traffic is voice activated, so it responds to spoken requests. Lifetime traffic² entitles your nüvi 2797LMT to receive free traffic information for its entire useful life.

¹If you purchase a nüMaps Lifetime subscription (sold separately or bundled together with certain GPS models), you will receive up to 4 map data updates per year, when and as such updates are made available on Garmin’s website, for 1 compatible Garmin product until your product’s useful life expires or Garmin no longer receives map data from its third party supplier, whichever is shorter. A product’s “useful life” means the period during which the product (a) has sufficient memory capacity and other required technical capabilities to utilize current map data and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. A product will be deemed to be out of service and its useful life to be ended if no updates have been downloaded for such product for a period of 24 months or more. Unless otherwise stated, the updates you receive under the subscription will be updates to the same geographic map data originally included with your Garmin product when originally purchased. In some instances, your Garmin product might not have sufficient memory remaining for you to load an update to the map data, in which case you will need to either (a) select reduced map data coverage for your updates, or (b) purchase separately a microSD™/SD™ card (if and as applicable to your Garmin product) and load all or a portion of the map data coverage for your updates to the card and insert the card into the microSD/SD card slot contained in your Garmin product. If neither of the measures in (a) or (b) can be used to address your product’s lack of sufficient remaining memory, then Garmin may conclude that the “useful life” of your product has expired. Garmin may terminate your nüMaps Lifetime subscription at any time if you violate any of the terms of this agreement or your subscription. Your nüMaps Lifetime subscription may not be transferred to another Garmin product.
²FREE lifetime traffic updates may not be transferred to another person or another Garmin product. Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. A traffic receiver’s “useful life” means the period during which the receiver (a) has the required technical capabilities to utilize current traffic data service and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. Traffic content not available for all areas. See traffic coverage areas.
³User’s data plan charges, if any, will apply. Contact your mobile service provider for more information about your service plan’s data and roaming rates.

What I like about the 2797:
Screen size - Much easier to see info at a quick galance, very helpful for those that don't have 20/20 vision
Mounting method - Much improved - Just push the tab at the bottom of the mount and the unit comes off. I remove my Garmin at every stop that I'll be away from the car and this makes it much easier.
Features - Talk about customizing, if you take the time, you can really have a special device that caters to your needs and preferences.
Directions for use - I headed to Youtube where GPSCity does a wonderful job of showing you how to use your new device.
Info on Screen - You can have a ton of info showing on the screen, ie, food, gas stations, etc. along with speed, distance to next turn, time of arrival. Or you can stick to the basics. Quick Note - I love the speed indicator, a feature on most Garmins. I travel on country roads quite a bit and the speed limit can change quickly going through small towns. A quick galance will show you your speed. If it's in the red, slow down, in the green, you are good.
Volume - Much better and the directions are spoken clearer as well.
Brightness - You can have a really bright screen or tone it down. I finally have a Garmin that I don't have it on the brightest setting.
Lane assist - I had this on my last Garmin, but with the larger screen, it is much easier to see.
What I am disappointed with in the Garmin
Voice recognition - This was one of the biggest reasons I upgraded to the 2797.Read more ›
The model that does not have the lifetime traffic is 2757LM. I think the manufacturer for Garmin forgot to include the "T" on the sticker on the back of the GPS.
When I go to the Garmin website, there is no such model for 2797LM, just 2757LM.
The difference between the the 2757LM and the 2797LMT is 3 things:
Voice activated navigation
I was about to return to Amazon but I did some further research. Now it is fine. As far as I am concern, this is the best GPS for me. It is fully loaded with all the options I need for traveling. I even purchased a year subscription for Phantom Alert to detect speed traps and cameras.
Cons: Bluetooth sound quality and functionality issues, Users Manual, Battery Life.
In general I like the 2797LMT as an upgrade, in my case, from the 1490T, except for poor Bluetooth/Phone sound volume and quality plus an outgoing call/connection problem I haven't solved yet.
Size: This is one really big boy sitting on my Subaru dash but it works surprisingly well with a beanbag mount...a 1490T on steroids. No major sight obstruction thru the windshield. Portability might be a problem for those who have several cars or rent often. The power mount is a plus; easy to connect/disconnect. Probably not a good idea to suction mount to the window since if it releases (and it will eventually) you will have a large electronic piece flopping onto your lap. At least with the beanbag, it can't flop too far. Later, I may super glue the suction disk to the beanbag to make sure. Note, the suction mount has a larger diameter suction disc than previous mounts because of the 2797 increased weight.
At approx 1 to 1.5 hours, it could be better. But I suspect the unit was not designed to be used w/o car power, especially since the Traffic feature would not work without the GTM antenna enabled via the power cable. Not clear about the optional AC charger specs since the supplied GTM antenna cable indicates 2amp delivered to the hot mount but the garmin charger appears to be a 1 amp charger? If so, than any 1 amp charger will work as long as you can connect to the 2797 direct with a micro USB tip. Note, the GTM cable to the mount connects with a mini USB tip.Read more ›
I was unable to find a replacement battery on Garmin's website. Fortunately, Google found part # 361-00066-00 at a well known auction site and for an investment of $14, I obtained a new one. To replace the battery you'll need the following tools: A T-6 torx bit to undo the ten small screws around the back of the case. A piece of thin, hard plastic (a hard guitar pick works). A thin (1/8th inch) blade, short (3 to 4 inches long) flat-blade screwdriver.
Remove the 10 torx screws at the back of the case. Run the plastic 'pick' all around the perimeter seam between the two halves of the case -- press it into the crack and gently twist all the way around until the halves separate. Open the case very carefully, starting at the top of the unit -- there's a delicate ribbon wire harness inside (at the the base of the unit), that connects the two halves.
Pull the battery connector upwards using its wires (it's a push on rather than a plug in connector). The battery is held in the case with 3 square inches of thin plastic, coated on both sides with "megastick" adhesive, and has to be removed with great care to avoid breaking the Nuvi's thin plastic casing.
Insert the thin flat-blade screwdriver below the corner of the battery adjacent to the strongest part of its recess (there's a rounded injection molded plastic reinforcing web there) and very gently lever downwards on the screwdriver handle. You should start to hear the sound of the adhesive yielding.Read more ›
