Garmin DriveSmart 51 Overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy spoken turn-by-turn directions throughout North America, a 5" pinch-to-zoom screen, live traffic updates and parking info, and hands-free calling with the DriveSmart 51 Navigation System by Garmin. The system comes with numerous features to make driving safer and easier, including alerts for road hazards (or your own fatigue), easy-to-understand directions using landmarks and businesses, and directions within complex locations like airports and mall parking lots.

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 the unit's voice-activated navigation capability. When a map or software update is available, you'll be notified, and the DriveSmart will download the update automatically using your home WiFi network.

Along with map data, the navigator 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. 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 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 the BC30 Wireless Backup Camera, both sold separately.

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 rerouting 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.
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 DriveSmart 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 DriveSmart 51 Reviews

    DriveSmart 51 LMT-S Navigation System (North America Maps, Traffic & Parking) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is an awful gps - dont buy it we have had Garmin GPSs before and they have been wonderful. This GPS is grossly inaccurate.  The turns are shown at the wrong places. We actually got into an accident because they showed us the turn after the turn had passed.  I bought a separate piece for the traffic and I have had it plugged in for 2 months already and it has never shown up the traffic although weve been in traffic numerous times since then.  This product came recommended by the B&H representative we had spoken to but I advise you not to buy it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Budget navigation system We installed the unit in an older vehicle that didnt have a built-in navigation system.  Although it has a fairly small screen, it doesnt really matter since it can operate entirely with voice commands.  Unfortunately, just like those cell phone company customer service lines, the Garmin has a lot of trouble recognizing many words.  The unit is very user-friendly, however.  In fact, there is no operators manual that comes with it; it is that user-friendly.  I hope it is durable: time will tell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great GPS Works beautifully. An unexpected surprise: Warns you of impending change in speed limit up ahead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product This is faster than my older model Garmin. It has Bluetooth. When paired with my cell phone, I can use it as a speaker/microphone inside the car. Apparently, it can receive text and traffic info from the phone also. I haven't tried the latter feature. I can recommend this.
