Introduction

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

Both are identical in most respects, but the 2789LMT has slightly better hardware specification thanks to its pinch and zoom interface.

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.

The Camera

It is Garmin’s first car GPS that comes bundled with BC 20 wireless backup camera. This wide-angle camera is waterproof and ruggedized, so it is safe to say that this equipment is expected to survive difficult weather conditions.

BC 20 should be mounted at the rear at the vehicle and connected with the reverse lights.

As the driver shifts to reverse, the camera automatically starts and displays the area behind the car on nuvi 2798LMT’s screen. According to the manufacturer, BC 20 can cover area as far as 45 ft away.

When the camera is activated, the screen automatically connects to it; when driver shifts out of reverse, the navigation will resume as usual.

Garmin Traffic

Another good feature is the voice-activated Garmin Traffic. It keeps the driving map on the main screen while it displays traffic information and alerts on the side of the map. All messages are spoken and it can provide information whether there is any possible detour or how long a delay is.

Furthermore, Garmin Traffic also informs you about the fastest route available for your destination. LMT (Lifetime Map and Traffic) is included, meaning you will receive map updates and traffic information free of charge for lifetime.

Smartphone Link

A free mobile app called Smartphone Link is compatible with nuvi 2798LMT. The app makes it possible to connect the main unit with iPhone or Android smartphone. When the main unit is connected with a compatible smartphone, it is possible to use the phone’s existing data plan to share information including POIs and destination.

Moreover, Smartphone Link also provides access to Garmin Live Service where information such as traffic and weather conditions is available for free. In addition, drivers can also connect the nuvi 2798LMT with their smartphones by using Bluetooth connectivity.

When connected, drivers can receive and make phone calls via the GPS device. The conversation will go through Garmin nuvi 2798LMT’s built-in microphone and speaker.

Garmin Real Directions and Active Lane Guidance

There are two important technologies equipped in nuvi 2798LMT including Garmin Real Directions and Active Lane Guidance. Garmin Real Directions feature spoken driving guidance which now also speaks out recognizable landmarks and traffic lights instead of distance only before making any turn.

Active Lane Guidance displays comprehensive animations that inform driver to take the proper lane required for any given route. The animation appears as the vehicle approaches an interchange or exit. This technology uses voice prompts as well to give better navigation assistance.
