Love it: This intelligent GPS navigator features Garmin Guidance 3.0, which is Garmin’s most advanced navigation engine yet. It has a faster, more intuitive user interface to enhance the speed and accuracy of searches and routing. The nüvi 3590LMT is part of Garmin’s collection of premium portable navigation devices (PNDs), offering sophisticated features ideal for everyday use for those on the move. The nüvi 3590LMT features a super-wide 5.0” (12.7cm) capacitive automatic dual-orientation touchscreen display, 3D traffic, lifetime traffic updates, a data file of the Cyclops safety camera’s database and Bluetooth hands-free calling.

Not so much: Smartphones definitely seem to be taking on the jobs of sat-navs for many people these days. It appears that most would rather have one device that does it all as opposed to a bunch of gadgets individually used for various tasks.

In a nutshell: If you are in the car most of the day and going to new destinations is your thing, then perhaps having a sat-nav live in your car positioned neatly on your dashboard is the way to go. Trying to use your cell phone for maps while driving can be tricky at the best of times, never mind dangerous if you do not have the correct cell phone car mount.
