Take to the road with complete confidence with Garmin’s DriveSmart 51 Advanced Navigation system. The navigator is preloaded with complete maps of Europe so you can explore the continent with minimal risk of getting lost. The GPS-enabled navigation offers acutely accurate directions. The map is displayed brightly on a five-inch touch screen, with bold colours ensuring that your route stands out from the roads around you. Clear markers indicate points of interest on your route, including restaurants, shops and services.
The DriveSmart 51 uses very specific instructions to ensure that you know exactly where you’re going at all times. Its guidance makes use of recognisable landmarks on your route to direct you to your destination, including exact street names, nearby services, distinctive buildings and traffic lights. This ensures that you get fully comprehensive information that is easy to understand.
Point of interest details from social media
The DriveSmart 51 isn’t just for getting you to your destination, but also making the most of it once you arrive. It uses details and reviews published on TripAdvisor to provide you with all the information you need about local businesses to make informed decisions about where to visit on your trip. The built-in Trip Planner tool suggests new places you might like to visit that you pass by on your journey.
Real time services
This navigator is designed to offer the most comprehensive instructions possible by making use of real time information feeds that keep you notified of delays. It connects wirelessly to the free Smartphone Link app, which sources live traffic reports as well as weather forecasts. It then measures the impact those issues may have on your journey. As you arrive at your destination, you can view your options for nearby parking spaces and their prices.
Comprehensive hazard alerts
A product that takes road safety seriously, the DriveSmart is designed to promote situational awareness and alert you to any hazards you may face. It warns you if you are approaching changes to the speed limit and red light or speed cameras. It also notifies you if you need to watch your speed, for instance if you are coming up to a sharp curve or a school zone. It offers advice about when to stop and rest to prevent fatigue if you have been driving for extended periods of time, and even provides suggestions of places to rest.
Complete connectivity for unrivalled safety
To ensure that you get the fullest possible picture of your road safety, the DriveSmart 51 can connect wirelessly to other Garmin products that extend the information you have access to. For example, the Garmin Smartwatch (sold separately) can give you comprehensive directions from your parking space to your precise destination so you won’t get lost even after you’ve parked. It’ll even lead you back to your vehicle so you won’t lose it in a busy carpark.
Whether you need to take a phone call or alter your destination to somewhere to pick up a coffee, you won’t ever need to take your hands off the wheel as long as you have the DriveSmart 51. It syncs via Bluetooth to your smartphone so you can take and make calls through the navigator. You can also customise notifications for text messages and calendar reminders to appear on the navigator screen. You can control the DriveSmart 51 using voice commands as it is programmed to recognise specific destination requests.
