Garmin DriveLuxe 51 overview

  • 1Description

Sporting an elegant metal housing and a magnetic mount for easy stow-and-go, the Garmin DriveLuxe 51 LMT-S Navigation System features a bright, clear 5" pinch-to-zoom display that will make your trip safer and easier. Along with Garmin's detailed maps of North America, the DriveLuxe will warn you about traffic ahead, and even help you find a place to park.

Included are numerous features to improve your driving experience, notably 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 and 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. The Incident Notification feature alerts designated friends or family should if you're involved in an accident.

Along with map data, the DriveLuxe is populated with TripAdvisor points of interest such as hotels, restaurants, and attractions near your destination and along the way, and information from Foursquare on millions of local destinations. Active lane assist with voice prompts and junction view ensure that you are in the right lane of travel at tricky interchanges, while route shaping helps you pick the most efficient way to get where you're going. The system is compatible with Garmin smartwatches and BC 30 Wireless Backup Camera, both sold separately.

Driver Alerts
You'll be alerted to sharp curves, speed limit changes, railroad crossings, animal crossings, and school zones, and will be warned 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, DriveAssist 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.
Incident Notifications
Designate your chosen contact, and they will automatically receive a text message if you're involved in any incident. You can choose to cancel the message prompt before it sends. The text notification includes a map link to where the incident occurred.
Live Traffic and Parking Info
Pair the navigator with your compatible mobile device using the free Smartphone Link app, and you'll have traffic alerts, relevant re-routing suggestions, pricing for parking facilities, and availability trends for on-street public parking. The app also enables LiveTrack, which lets you share your location with family or friends.
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 DriveAssist provides info from TripAdvisor on hotels, restaurants, and attractions at your destination and on your journey, along with Foursquare data on millions of restaurants, entertainment venues, shops and other points of interest.
Smartwatch & Camera Compatibility
Pair with compatible Garmin smartwatches for driver alerts on your wrist and compass guidance to find your car, and with Garmin's BC 30 Backup Camera for dramatically improved safety (smartwatches and backup camera sold separately).

    Garmin DriveLuxe 51 reviews

    DriveLuxe 51 LMT-S Navigation System is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent choice Great GPS, I loved my last Garmin and this one took a week to acclimate to. Thought I had lost some features but in the end the new Garmin has everything my old Garmin had and much more. The new driving instructions referencing landmarks and traffic lights is a big plus. The changes in speed limits warning is also excellent.I purchased the traffic receiver power cord and traffic info is great were provided. It does not have data in some areas. Search function is fast , and the visual images of lane position and exits is great. I highly recomend this Garmin to anyone looking to have the best.
