Garmin DriveSmart 50 overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy turn-by-turn directions throughout North America, a 5" pinch-to-zoom screen, and hands-free calling with the DriveSmart 50LMT Navigation System by Garmin. The system comes with numerous features to make driving easier, including alerts for road hazards (or your own fatigue), easy-to-understand directions using landmarks and businesses, directions within complex locations like airports and mall parking lots, and comprehensive search. Sync a Bluetooth-enabled device, such as your smartphone, for hands-free calling, receiving smart notifications, text messages, and calendar reminders without taking your hands off the wheel. You can also get directions by talking instead of touching, thanks to its voice-activated navigation capability.

Along with map data, the DriveSmart is populated with information from Foursquare on millions of local destinations and points of interest. You can also customize the device with up to 1,000 destinations of your choosing. Active lane assist with voice prompts and junction view ensure that you are in the right lane of travel, while route shaping helps you pick the most efficient way to get where you're going. The system is compatible with user-supplied Garmin backup and backseat cameras.

Driver Alerts
The DriveSmart will alert you to sharp curves, speed limit changes, railroad crossings, animal crossings, and school zones, and will warn you if you end up going the wrong way on a one-way road, or if you've been driving for too long without a break. In jurisdictions where it is permitted, it will warn you about red-light and speed cameras.
Hands-Free Calling
Synch a Bluetooth-enabled device, such as your smartphone, for hands-free calling and receive text messages and calendar reminders without taking your hands off the wheel. Customizable smart notifications appear on the navigation display.
Real Directions
Garmin's Real Directions feature uses recognizable landmarks, buildings, and intersections to let you know when and where to turn.
Points of Interest
The unit is capable of searching millions of locations and providing directions by entering a term (like "pizza"), the name of a business or an address.
Camera Compatibility
Dramatically improve your view while backing up and keep tabs on backseat passengers without turning your head with Garmin's BC 30 backup camera and babyCam backseat camera, both sold separately. Images from the cameras show on demand on the DriveSmart's display.

    Garmin DriveSmart 50 reviews

    DriveSmart 50LMT Navigation System is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I would not buy this product again I like the Garmin GPS units, and purchased this product to replace my older and smaller Garmin Nuvi 2595, which worked fine, but wanted a larger screen. the Drive smart 50 works well, but, the screen is hi-gloss and due to the reflections in the glass, it is very hard to see the map and information on the screen. Perhaps a dull screen, or a matt finished film might help, but it is very frustrating to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin Smartdrive 50 was a smart purchase I've had a Garmin Nuvi 260W for quite a few years and was happy with it until it started acting up on a recent trip to the east coast. When I got home I decided to retire the Nuvi and buy a new Smartdrive 50 LMT. What an amazing change in performance and technology this unit is. How they get all this data into such a mall box is amazing to me. One new feature (to me)that wasn't in my old Nuvi (and I don't know how I got by without it) is the indicator of the speed limit on the road where you are driving. I highly recommend this unit to any and all.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from My second GPS Drivesmart 50 I like them because they name the streets I'm searching for. My first one worked for about two years--then "powered down" while I was traveling. I returned it to Costco. Now , I have a new one--two weeks old; it has powered down also already--I'll try it another month or so. I also have GPS 2599--it has never let me down--it just doesn't name the streets or have the capacity to add them. I spent hours working with a garmin rep on the phone and computer at the same time.
