What makes this Sat Nav unique?
The Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT-D is fitted with free Garmin digital traffic software, which makes driving much easier from the moment it leaves the box. The software uses DAB technology to download the latest traffic news, and update your route accordingly to keep your travel time to a minimum. Driver alerts are built-in to encourage safer driving – warning you of what might be ahead, such as sharp curves, railways crossings, speed cameras and more.
The Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT-D is fitted with a bright five-inch screen which can be mounted on your windscreen horizontally or vertically, allowing you to fit the Sat Nav in the perfect position for use.

The Sat Nav can be linked to your smartphone via Bluetooth, allowing you to receive calls, view text messages and even calendar reminders without taking your hands off the steering wheel. The Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT-D will do this while guiding you on your journey using recognisable landmarks and directions such as "turn right at the red building." The ‘direct access’ feature allows you to select a complex destination such as a specific retail store at a shopping centre, so that you can complete your journey without complications.

If you would like assistance when reversing or would like to keep an eye on the kids when driving, Garmin have designed the BC30 Wireless Backup Camera and the babyCam (both sold separately, direct from Garmin) – both of which can be linked directly to your Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT-D Sat Nav.

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 1 out of 5 by from Terrible battery My old Garmin battery would last a week, then I could use it for 1hr. This one barely lasts 24hs until it runs out, and when I use it, it barely manages 15min without needing to be plugged in. I returned it thinking it was faulty, but the next one was just the same. Very bad, TomTom and old Garmin much better.
