Garmin Drive 51 LMT-S

Brand new for 2017 is the Garmin Drive 51. The Drive 51 replaces the Drive 50 model, and adds a new enhanced feature set including lifetime free live services. The Drive 51 is an easy-to-use dedicated GPS navigator with bright 5.0-inch dual-orientation display. It's preloaded with lifetime maps, and provides real-time services such as live traffic and live parking. It also offers driver alerts for dangerous curves, speed changes, speed cameras, railway crossings, animal crossings and more. The latest TripAdvisor ratings are preloaded and include travel points of interest (POIs) such as hotels, restaurants and attractions. This model is the LMT-S version, which includes live traffic updates via a bluetooth link to your smartphone. If you want the faster more accurate traffic updates, upgrade to a DriveSmart LMT-D model. And if you want integrated dash cam functionality, upgrade to the Garmin DriveAssist series.



Be careful which version you order!
Although the hardware is the same, different retailers are selling the Drive 51 with various map bundles. There's the UK maps only version, or Western Europe (e.g. UK, France, Spain etc), or Full Europe (e.g. UK, France, Spain, Poland, Germany etc).
