Garmin nuvi 2789LMT came from 2014’s line and 2797LMT is from 2013’s line.

Garmin nuvi 2797LMT
It is part of the Advanced series from Garmin, the nuvi 2797LMT is a capable car navigation device with spoken-directions, voice-prompted navigation, Bluetooth, Smartphone Link compatibility, and of course lifetime maps and traffic updates.
Out of the box, it brings City Navigator NT for North America with detailed maps of United States including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico, Virgin Islands, Bahamas, and Cayman Island. There are also more than 10 million POIs included, and it accepts custom POIs you create as well.
Garmin nuvi 2797LMT is packaged with vehicle suction cup, USB cable, lifetime traffic receiver which also functions as vehicle power cable, and manual instruction.
A 7-inch color TFT touchscreen display dominates the front part of the main unit, and it produces 800 x 480 pixels resolution.
Navigational features include Garmin Real Directions, which use voice navigation to tell you which ways to go based on easy-to-recognize landmarks such as traffic lights and buildings instead of street names or distance-based navigations.
Active Lane Guidance with Bird’s Eye junction view is also present to give detailed overview of complicated interchanges and bright color arrow to show you the proper lane to take anytime you are approaching an interchange exit or entrance.
Real road signs are as well displayed on the screen as you come across every single one of them on the road.
In addition, Garmin nuvi 2797LMT is Bluetooth-enabled, meaning you can pair it with a compatible phone and make or receive phone calls without even taking your cell phone out of your pocket.
The device has built-in microphone and speakers to allow you to have hands-free calls without taking your hands off the steering wheel and your eyes off the road.
When used with Garmin’s companion app called Smartphone Link installed on your smartphone, the nuvi 2797LMT can use your smartphone’s existing data plan to share information such as contacts, search results, favorite locations, your driving destination, and even your parking spot.
This device is Garmin Express compliant, a service from Garmin to receive updates anytime available and install custom vehicle icons or voices.
Garmin nuvi 2789LMT
One of the major differences between nuvi 2797LMT and nuvi 2789LMT is that the latter’s POIs database is based on Foursquare. When you are searching for a place or destination on the device, the most relevant results from Foursquare will appear on its screen.
Also, the latter is compatible with wireless backup camera BC 30. Another noticeable difference is that the nuvi 2789LMT’s screen actually supports pinch and zoom, but the size and resolution are similar to those of nuvi 2797LMT.
Apart from those differences, both devices are more or less the same in terms of navigational features including Bluetooth and smartphone Link compatibility.
