- 6-inch screen
- Maps for 45 European countries with lifetime updates
- Great voice control
The middle member of Garmin's Advanced Sat-Nav series, the nuvi 2699LMT-D packs a load of features including a more than adequate 6-inch, 800 x 480 screen and maps of 45 European countries with lifetime updates. You also get Garmin's Digital Traffic which is a lifetime subscription-free service, plus, there's voice control and Bluetooth for hands-free calling.
Garmin's Smartphone Link for Android and iOS adds more information to the on-screen display. The built-in Foursquare POIs allow you to see user-generated information, including suggestions for restaurants, shops, and so on. But with the Smartphone Link, you also get user ratings, prices, and hours of service. The voice control is also excellent, and might just be the best voice command system we've come across.
If you're looking for a feature-packed sat-nav for under £200, this is one of the better options on the market.
At time of review the Garmin nuvi 2699LMT-D was available for £190.27.
