Garmin Nuvi 2595LMT, 2595LT and 2595LM Motorcycle and Car Mounts

This line of GPS models was introduced by Garmin in 2012.  The 2595 line of devices were introduced as an update to Garmin’s extremely successful 2555 lineup.  The difference between the two is that the 2595 has Bluetooth and voice recognition.  Nice features that result on the driver not having to manually interface with the GPS.  Devices like the Garmin Nuvi 2595LMT with an LMT or LM after the number have a lifetime map subscription and those that have an LT or LMT have a lifetime traffic subscription.  As far as I can tell though, only the 2595LMT was available in … Read more…
