Amazon ReviewsScores 3.8 out of 5 from 109 Amazon Reviewers.
The Garmin DriveSmart 51 is one of the latest models in the Garmin sat nav range. The DriveSmart 51 replaces the DriveSmart 50 model, and adds a new enhanced feature set including lifetime free live services. This 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-D version, which includes live traffic updates via DAB, which is Garmins fastest most accurate traffic updates. If you want integrated dash cam functionality, upgrade to the Garmin DriveAssist series. The DriveSmart 51 LMT-D is Garmin's answer to the 5 inch Go 5200 from TomTom. Whilst it lacks the worldwide maps found on the TomTom, it has WiFi, live digital traffic services, and a load of other features including Tripadvisor integration and advanced lane guidance. Best of all, at the time of writing, it's significantly cheaper than TomTom's model.

Be careful which version you order!
Although the hardware is the same, different retailers are selling the DriveSmart 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). There's also a 'Central Europe' maps version which doesn't contain UK maps!
