Helpful Driver Alerts for Your Daily Commute

Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT GPS navigator provides driver alerts to encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness. Warnings include alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railway crossings, animal crossings and more. Additionally, Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT notifies you when driving the wrong way on a one-way street and sends warnings for nearby school zones. Receive alerts for nearby red light and safetey cameras5, and be prepared for traffic with upcoming traffic6 alerts. For longer drives, a fatigue warning7 suggests break times and potential rest areas after hours of driving. The Up Ahead feature lets you easily see places up ahead and milestones along your route like borders, without leaving the map view.

Navigate Complex Junctions with Ease

Lane Guidance with voice prompts prepares you to drive through an exit or junction with confidence. As you approach, an animated model uses brightly coloured arrows to indicate the proper lane needed for your route. Bird’s Eye junction view offers a detailed view of junctions, looking down as if from overhead. And, photoReal Junction View realistically displays junctions along your route, including the surrounding landscape.

Our Best Traffic Solutions

With Garmin LIVE Traffic via Smartphone Link you get improved Traffic coverage. There’s now no excuse to get caught up in congestion – whether it’s road works, an accident, rush hour traffic or serious hazards like wrong way drivers. With a 1 minute refresh rate, you’ll know where and how long delays are, and be offered an alternative route if available – so you’ll always feel relaxed and in control. Just pair your compatible Garmin navigator and your phone via Bluetooth8. (Data subscription might be required). Beside Garmin LIVE Traffic, get additionally free lifetime Traffic avoidance out-of the-box via RDS-TMC. It works over the traditional analogue FM radio to inform you of delays and alternative routes.

Guidance Using Recognisable Landmarks

Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT redefines “spoken turn-by-turn directions” with Garmin Real Directions™, easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a friend, using recognisable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights (e.g., “Turn right after the red building” or “Turn left after the McDonalds”). It’s preloaded with millions more new and popular places, thanks to Foursquare®.

Easier to Search, Quicker to Find

Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT has a search field that makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs. Simply enter a category (like “pizza”), an entire address or a proper name (“Starbucks”), and Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT quickly returns your results. In case of a misspelling, Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT provides multiple search results that sound similar to what you’ve entered.

Add a Camera to Your Drive

For a complete navigation solution, Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT pairs with the BC™ 30 Wireless Backup Camera (sold separately; professional installation recommended). Once connected, you can easily see vehicles, pedestrians and other obstacles right on the Garmin DriveSmart display, as you move in reverse.

One-stop Device Management

Use Garmin Express™ to keep your Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT up to date. Garmin Express makes it easy to update maps and software, transfer favourites to and from devices and install free custom vehicles and voices.

The quality of map data can make all the difference between finding your destination and getting lost.
