The Nuvi 2497LM Sat Nav from Garmin ensures a smooth journey to the destination of your choice.
Packed with key features to accommodate your journey, the Sat Nav has full EU maps with free lifetime updates for 45 countries including UK and Ireland, complete with the latest road and POI (points of interest) information.
Garmin's real navigation technology ensures accurate directions with reference to recognisable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights, providing you with confidence and letting you focus on the road ahead. Real Voice™ technology offers refined speech technology for a more natural sounding voice, and Real Signs™ features on screen guidance that reflects their real life counterparts, removing any confusion and ambiguity in interpreting directions.
Active Lane Guidance makes the journey less stressful. Using a combination of voice prompts and visual cues to help you drive through an exit or interchange with confidence. An animated graphic is displayed next to the map view and brightly coloured arrows indicate the proper lane needed to make a turn. There is also a built-in feature that displays points of interest along your route including restaurants, hospitals and petrol stations, updating the information as your drive along your route.
Garmin's Photoreal and Birdseye Junction View are great features that lie within the Nuvi 2497LM Satellite Navigation system. The PhotoReal Junction View shows the lane you need to be in at upcoming major junctions and exits with incredible detail of your surroundings. The BirdsEye Junction View shows a detailed view of junctions looking down from overhead.
Sync with a Bluetooth®-enabled smart device for hands-free calling via the sat nav, so you can keep your eyes on the road and both hands on the wheel. For additional safety and convenience, Garmin introduces Automatic Speech Recognition technology that's a highly innovative voice-activated function that works to wake your device up using your customised voice command with other commands to active menu options on the screen for a totally touch-free experience.
