Garmin DriveSmart 50LM
Sat Nav with smart features
Garmin DriveSmart 50LM is a Garmin sat nav with a 5-inch pinch to-zoom display that combines the driver awareness features with Bluetooth hands-free calling and onscreen smart notifications (calls, texts and other app alerts) to encourage safe driving. It comes with free lifetime map updates for the UK, Ireland and full Europe (45 countries). Dual-orientation capabilities allow you to use either horizontally or vertically. Garmin DriveSmart knows when it has been rotated and adjusts the display automatically.
Helpful driver alerts for your daily commute
Garmin DriveSmart GPS sat nav provides driver alerts to encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness. Warnings include alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railway crossings, animal crossings and more.
Additionally, Garmin DriveSmart notifies you when driving the wrong way on a one-way street and sends warnings for nearby school zones. Receive alerts for nearby red light and speed cameras. For long drives, a fatigue warning suggests break times and potential rest areas after hours of driving. The Up Ahead feature lets you easily see places up ahead and milestones along your route like borders, without leaving the map view.
Sync a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone to DriveSmart to receive calls, text messages and calendar reminders on the sat nav display without ever removing your hands from the steering wheel. Download the free Smartphone Link app. User’s data plan charges, if any, will apply.
Hands-free Calling and Voice-Activated Navigation
Control DriveSmart with your voice to navigate and make or receive calls, while your hands remain safely on the wheel. For real-time information such as weather and traffic conditions, download Smartphone Link mobile app, which connects your Garmin DriveSmart with your compatible smartphone.
Traffic Via Smartphone Link App
Traffic alerts are available for free on your Garmin sat nav via Bluetooth with the Garmin Smartphone Link App (available to download free from Apple Store or Google Play). Traffic alerts such as expected minutes of delay will be shown as well as possible detours. It can even confirm whether or not you are on the fastest route.
PhotoReal and Bird’s Eye Junction view
Active Lane Guidance uses brightly coloured arrows to indicate the correct lane needed; Bird’s Eye junction view offers a detailed view of junctions, looking down as if from overhead. PhotoReal Junction View realistically displays junctions along your route, including the surrounding landscape.
Garmin Real Directions
Garmin Real Directions provides easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a friend, using landmarks, buildings and traffic lights (e.g. 'Turn right after the red building' or 'Turn left after the McDonalds'). It’s preloaded with millions of new and popular places thanks to Foursquare.
Points of Interest and Direct Access
Garmin DriveSmart has a search field that makes it easy to find addresses and points of interest (POIs) and quickly returns your results. The Direct Access feature simplifies navigating to select complex destinations, like airports and shopping centres, by finding a place within a larger location.
Add a camera to your drive
Garmin DriveSmart pairs with Garmin BC 30 backup camera (sold separately) to see vehicles and obstacles on the sat nav display when in reverse. Add Garmin babyCam (sold separately), an in-vehicle video baby monitor that provides an 'on demand' view of your backseat passenger on the sat nav display.
Garmin DriveSmart includes lifetime map updates for UK, Ireland and Full Europe (45 countries). Garmin Express makes it easy to update maps and software, transfer favourites to and from devices and instal free custom vehicles and voices.
