  • The 2595 does accept names of saved places but only the four in the window and the next four after them. @Billw439 I don't believe I understand what you're saying here. Speaking the names of Saved Places does not let you pick them from the list of 4…
  • Glad the comments helped. "Saved Places" is fine with me as a replacement for "Favorites." I don't know the reason for the change, though maybe it's an easier phrase for the unit to understand by voice. I find that the 2595 does very well in underst…
  • I have the nuvi 2595, replacing a nuvi 855 (also with voice command). "Saved Places" is the same thing as "Favorites in the older model (which I assume the 2460 also used, although the 2460 is probably more similar to the 2595 than to the 855 in mos…
  • I think we're unanimous. The red is simply awful. I've tried different "Dashboards" on my 2595LMT, and each one has a different color drawback. Depending on the dashboard, I can't see the color either in the day or at night. I'd like the color feat…
  • I've done the same but as an added feature, while the favorites are in Mapsource I put them into Categories (Hotels, Fuel, Restaurants, Vacation1, etc.) before I copy them back. This makes by 400+ favorites much easier to find than a huge long lis…
  • iggy, thanks for posting this. Did you have another Garmin GPS prior to the 2595, and how does this one compare with the older one? I just got the 2595, and had an 855 (also voice recognition) before. I'm learning what I like better in each model. M…
  • Thanks for that useful comparison of the 2460 and a 2595. I'm especially interested that you found the voice command seemed more responsive on the 2595. My 855 is probably one of the early voice command units, and I've hoped that newer ones might im…
  • @alanb: Thanks for that suggestion and the welcome. I've visited this useful forum in the past, and it's time I registered. I remember calling Garmin about adding traffic to my 855 at one time, and the cost was around $100, I believe, and I thought…
  • Thanks for your comments. I've been considering the 2460LMT as a replacement for my nüvi 855 4.3" with speech recognition. I've wanted a newer unit mainly for the traffic feature and the larger screen. I wish I thought the traffic feature worked be…
