What makes this Sat Nav special?
This Sat Nav comes with a 4.3 inch dual orientation screen for easy positioning on your dash board. It is preinstalled with maps for the UK and the Republic of Ireland. The Garmin Drive 40LM warns the driver of potential hazards such as speed changes, sharp curves, school zones and more with its built-in driver alerts.

The ‘real directions’ feature gives you instructions like a local would, referencing local sights and reference points to guide your journey more effectively. The built-in ‘direct access’ feature allows you to navigate around large built-up buildings to allow for easy navigation to your final destination such as a particular store in a shopping centre.

Which countries can I use this Sat Nav in?
This Sat Nav comes with maps of the UK, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland pre-installed. You can upgrade the Garmin Drive 40LM by installing additional maps onto a microSD memory card and inserting this into the Sat Nav. Standard microSD cards can be used as map upgrades, and can be purchased from the Garmin website. Garmin also sell microSD cards with maps pre-installed on them, which can also be installed directly.

Can I update this Sat Nav?
This Sat Nav comes with free lifetime map updates. To make use of this, simply download the Garmin Express software, connect your Sat Nav to your computer with the supplied USB cable and the software will do the hard work for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performs well. I bought the Garmon Drive 40 to replace my BP Blue Media, for which map updates were no longer available. I found the setting-up, updating and operation of the Garmon a little more tricky than the BP, but got used to it quite quickly. The spoken route directions are rather briefer and less detailed than those of the BP but get you to your destination well enough. The screen mounting kit was simpler and less bulky than that of the HP, and works very well. ,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product very good sat nav, easy to us, everything in box that you need, instructions was the draw back, as there was not much, when you do the update, which was very easy aswell. you find the instructions, so when you on the web site, would pay to down load the instructions. would recommend.
