    Yes, need an Oregon 650t so I can complete the wiki 😉

    I will enjoy playing with it too, I am sure, but I do not think it will replace my beloved Montana 650!

  2. I want a 2577LT, though maybe not if it is delayed too much beyond the March 1 date.

    But looking on the Garmin site at the “More images” of the 2577LT, they show a view of the backside. Looks like a different connection system than for older models I have used. Not sure what to make of it.

  3. Benazeer Abbas says:

    I am planning to buy either 3597LMT or 2797LMT. But I am not sure HD traffic and Realphoto and junction birdeye view will be available for my cities of interest or not. I mean for Calgary and Edmonton in Alberta province of Canada.

  4. GPScity is now showing the 2577LT as: Expected: Apr 5, 2013

    Hope this is the only date slip.

  5. Benazeer Abbas says:

    GPSCity has also updated 3597LMT date 7 Feb. Previously it was 1 May.

  6. Debating between the 2475lt vs 2577lt for a summer trip in Europe. The price difference for me is about $40. I would also like to use it for pedestrian walking. The Garmin website shows “Enhanced pedestrian navigation (guides you as you walk around town)” yes for the 2475lt. Is that true? Any conflict with the powered mount? Thanks in advance for your input.

    • Neither works with the powered mount. Here’s more info about pedestrian nav:

      • But only the 2475, 2577 and 2370 have europe maps.

        • The article on pedestrian nav is almost a year old so it naturally could not mention the 2577LT. If the Garmin website says that the 2577LT has “Enhanced pedestrian navigation” that is probably true! Of course the battery won’t last all day or even half a day walking around but at least it should help you find your way back to the hotel. In reality, it doesn’t take long to get oriented to walking around in a new city, and then you will have little need for the GPS. But it is a good security blanket…I usually carry it around for a while, use it occasionally being careful about the battery charge.

          I store each hotel location in the GPS before starting our trip. Also a few other locations: maybe a car rental location, train station, etc. But when driving, it is indispensable!!

  7. The 2475LT does not have voice activation. I favor the 2577LT because it does have voice activation and all the new 2013 features. The question is when they will actually deliver them.
