Whether you’re driving through an unfamiliar city or on your daily commute,
nüvi 2495LMT makes your trip easier than ever before. It includes FREE lifetime
traffic¹ and map² updates, advanced lane guidance and more.
Navigate By Touch or By Voice
With its innovative voice-activated navigation, you can control the nüvi 2495LMT with your voice — allowing you to keep both hands on the wheel. Simply wake up the device with a customizable voice command and begin speaking menu options that are clearly displayed on the screen. When you’re stopped, you can still control the nüvi using its intuitive touchscreen interface.
Garmin Guidance 2.0 allows you to easily look up addresses and services and be guided to your destination with voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names. It comes preloaded with maps for North America. It also comes preloaded with more than 8 million points of interest (POIs) and offers the ability to add your own.
Avoid Traffic Tie-ups
With FREE lifetime traffic updates from 3D Traffic, our most extensive traffic avoidance system, nüvi 2495LMT can help you avoid delays. We check traffic conditions more than 2 billion times each month, so you can easily reroute around congestion and arrive on time.
Enjoy FREE Lifetime Map Updates
With FREE lifetime map updates, you always have the most up-to-date maps, POIs and navigation information available at your fingertips. Map updates are available for download up to 4 times a year with no subscription or update fees and no expiration dates.
Know the Lane Before It’s Too Late
Now there’s no more guessing which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. Available in select metropolitan areas, photoReal junction view makes unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. When you approach an exit or interchange, nüvi 2495LMT will enter split screen mode and show you a realistic depiction of junctions on your route, complete with road signs and arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation.
Go Beyond Navigation
Point-to-point navigation is just the beginning. Share information and Live Services between nüvi 2495LMT and your compatible Android phone with Garmin Smartphone Link. nüvi 2495LMT also features a microSD™ card slot so you can store and use detailed cityXplorer™ maps or download custom voices and vehicles for free from the Garmin Garage™. Bluetooth® connectivity lets you make and take hands-free calls while dual-orientation functionality lets you hold the nüvi vertically or horizontally for added convenience driving or walking.
nüvi 2495LMT’s “Where Am I?” emergency locator provides your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and more, while Enhanced Exit Services tells you what services you’re approaching on the highway.
¹FREE lifetime traffic updates may not be transferred to another person or another Garmin product. Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. A traffic receiver’s “useful life” means the period during which the receiver (a) has the required technical capabilities to utilize current traffic data service and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. Traffic content not available for all areas.
