What makes this sat nav special?
The Garmin Drive 50LM is fitted with a five-inch touchscreen, with dual orientation and pinch-to-zoom technology for you to position the sat nav on your dashboard. The built-in driver alert function will alert you of dangers ahead such as a sharp turning or a change in speed limit so that you can react early. The real directions feature gives you a real world perspective by giving you easy to follow instructions such as "turn left at the traffic lights".

Which countries can I use this sat nav in?
The Garmin Drive 50LM has maps covering the UK and Republic of Ireland pre-installed. The sat nav can be upgraded by installing additional maps onto a microSD memory card and inserting this into the sat nav. Standard microSD cards to be used as map upgrades can be purchased from the Garmin website. Garmin also sells microSD cards with maps pre-installed, which can also be installed directly.

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.
