    Great case for Garmin GPS 2797LMT

    I bought this to replace a third party case I had bought from a well known online retailer. While I was very pleased with that case, the zipper left much to be desired as the pull came off fairly quickly rendering the case mostly useless as the GPS could fall out. I've had this case for a few months now and it is holding up nicely. The zipper pull has a rubber cushion cover to make it comfortable to use. It has a convenient pocket on the outside of the case just big enough to hold the USB cable supplied with the GPS unit, and any additional memory cards you may have for it. About the only weak point on this case is that the exterior accessory pocket doesn't have any form of closure on it to secure its contents. I would suggest storing any additional memory cards (if you have any) in the main pocket which does have a zipper along with the GPS, or just don't keep them with the case at all and only insert them into your GPS as needed. As stated in the summary, I use this with a Garmin Nuvi 2797 LMT and it fits perfectly. The case is made of a neoprene wetsuit type material for cushioning from small drops. That said, it would probably not offer much protection from sharp impacts to the screen, so I wouldn't stack anything on it that might be sharp. Even so, I've had no problems with it tossing it in my briefcase or backpack with other items.

    Love the 7" size

    Love the large screen, lane assist, blue tooth and many other features. Been an adjustment getting used to the software changes from our old Garmin, but nothing that wasn't easy to overcome. Just a few things that could use improving. Lane change notification could come a little sooner, especially in heavy traffic. And I don't think it has the Where Am I? feature that our old Garmin had. We used that a lot since we work on road construction. The other thing, and this may not be a Garmin problem, but in 2 different states, looked for a Walmart and were taken to the location of a closed store. Still, we love it. It is so easy to see. My next trip I'm going to work on preplanning a trip and loading it onto the Garmin from the computer.

    Good choice for your Garmin 7"

    I got this as a secondary choice. When I want to place my Garmin in a briefcase and into or out of work, this is great. I have a Pelican case that I use at other times. i like using a GPS unit and not my phone because when I get a call, I lose the map. Anyway, if you want a protective soft cover, I recommend this highly.

    I bought this case to protect my Garmin's screen from scratches while storing it in the glove box or under the seat of my car. The zipper has a nice quality feel to it and a nice inside liner, too. This is a good investment to protect your GPS screen. None of the carrying cases I had seen while shopping had a carrying strap, which, would have been a nice addition since the case material is slippery to the touch and can be dropped easily.

    gps screen case

    The case fits but not stiff enough to be protective, and it should hold the cables and gps mount. I still had to find a case to accomodate it all and because it's not made for all these components it's not convenient or protective enough. A stand-alone gps is meant to be portable...finish the job and accomodate the product.

    I have the 7-inch diesel GPS for truckers and my GPS has a lot more plastic around the screen so it was not able to be fitting in there if you have a regular GPS I think it would probably fit right in there and it's a very nice product but for me it did not fit

    Let's face it!, you just bought a great new toy and the best thing you can do is to protect it!. My new Garmin GPS is so great that I wouldn't even want to scratch it. The carrying case is great to protect it from scratches and dirt when you tend to travel with your toy. Believe me, when you take care of them...they take care of you!!! (period).

    Good I like the case a lot, but it only hold the screen, not the mount or cord. I don't like to draw attention that there is a GPS hidden somewhere in my vehicle. Unfortunately I had to buy a second case to put this case in along with the rest of the set up, so not to draw the attention of would be thieves.

    This travel case fits the gps just fine. The thought was so that my wife didn't have to leave it out in the open because she travels a lot for her job she wanted to quickly toss into her briefcase without scratching up the screen. Works great!

    Must have accessory

    I purchased this along with the dash friction mount. IMO this is a must have accessory. You pay all that money for a device, might as well protect it right? This is why I purchased this. Made by the manufacturer for the device. Highly recommended.

    All-in-all it does what it is supposed to. It would just be nice if one did not have to cram the cigarette lighter adapter into the somewhat small outer pocket. There is certainly not enough room for it with the GPS unit in the main pouch / compartment of the case. So the outside pocket is what you have to work with.

    I needed a case for my Nuvi 265, a 6" gps and this case works well, the gps fits without issue, the case is flexible to fit into a small bag I picked up to carry the GPS and the accessories. The case is completely flexible, has no firm backing to it, it feels somewhat cheap but it does just what I need so no complaints.

    When I'm on the road I don't like to leave my GPS device visible but at the same time putting it into my purse leaves it vulnerable to damage by whatever else is bouncing around in there! This case provides the protection needed, and also has an exterior pocket for other things I might need while traveling.

    I needed a case for my Tom Tom and they didn't make one. I purchased the Garmin case. The case is slightly larger than needed, but it holds everything with room to spare. Still fits under the seat. I did cut off the name so if anyone sees it, they don't necessarily know what is in it.

    Hard Case Would Be Better Choice.

    Carrying case is soft. I have previously purchased a hard case from Amazon, which provides better protection. Does not have enough room to carry all of the Garmin accessories required to carry your device, and actually be able to use it. No Room for windshield mount, DC Power cord, etc.

    I was looking around for a case to fit my 7" Garmin Nuvi 2797LM GPS and found this one to match all my specs. When it arrived I was really pleased at the quality and the fit. The GPS fits inside with a little space left over so that the GPS isn't jammed in there. Very satisfied with this

    I needed a protective case for my 7 inch garmin nuvi gps...I ordered this one & it is perfect. It's sleek fabric looks cool & fits my gps perfect. I like having a case to allow me to take my gps around with me in my purse or suitcase when I'm out or traveling. And for storage.

    I recently bought a new Garmin and knew my old case wouldn't fit it so wanted to get a new one. I am happy to be able to put my 6.1 in it and keep it protected. The price was great and shipping was a breeze--a good deal all around.

    This case works well for my 5" GPS unit. The pocket on the outside can hold the power adapter so I don't have to try and put it inside the case and possibly scratch the GPS screen. The soft case protects my GPS when I want to store it in my car or other locations.
