Garmin nüvi 2589LMT Advanced Series 5” GPS with Bluetooth and Lifetime Traffic and Maps
Get around town or across the North American continent with ease with this 5” dual-orientation GPS, which features Bluetooth capability for hands-free calling and Foursquare data that’s up to date with millions of popular restaurants and shopping destinations.
Trying to spot a tiny street sign in an unfamiliar area can be a nightmare. With Garmin Real Directions, the step-by-step navigation uses landmarks, buildings, and traffic lights to guide you in the right direction. For instance, the miniature person living inside the Garmin uses instructions such as “Turn left after the gas station.”
Garmin Traffic gives updates about delays and possible detours on the side of the device, meaning your driving map remains on the screen at all times. It also lets you know if you’re on the fastest possible route.
Use Your Voice
Voice-activated navigation lets you keep your hands on the wheel at all times. Simply speak a command or destination and the Garmin sends you on your way.

“Ideas can come from anybody,” notes Min Kao. While sitting around a shabby card table with fellow engineer Gary Burrell, the two formed the navigation company Garmin—a fusion of their first names—in 1989. Its goal was to take highly technical GPS technology and transform it into a product for the everyday consumer. These days, Garmin continues to hone their state-of-the-art navigation technology for cars, planes, boats, and wealthy meteors.
