Detailed Maps

nüvi 50LM arrives loaded with detailed maps of the UK, Ireland and Western Europe. With free lifetime map updates, your routes are sure to reflect the most up-to-date maps, POIs (points of interest) and navigation information. New maps are available for download up to 4 times per year, for the life of your device, with no fees.

Western Europe map coverage includes: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, San Marino, Malta, Monaco, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Vatican City.

It is easy to find addresses and POIs such as businesses, stores, restaurants and other destinations.

The super-wide 5" screen enables you to see more detail on the maps and more of the road ahead.

Keep an eye on the latest speed cameras

nüvi 50LM contains Garmin’s Cyclops Speed Camera system, for real-time, direction-relevant and accurate alerts. The full safety camera database is already pre-loaded on your sat nav. However, you can get regular or one-off updates to ensure you’ve always got the latest camera locations, so you can drive safety and legally.

Style Name: UK and Ireland Map
There are some newer Garmin's out in the entry range, but the price on the Nuvi 50 is hard to beat right now.
It's not the most feature packed GPS you will ever buy, but it gets the job done for modest outlay. I bought this for a friend who just wanted an affordable GPS and didn't need the advanced bits the higher priced models have.

While the usual Garmin interface is the same across the range, there are some differences in the models. As with all Garmin Sat Nav's you get the window mount and car charger included, you don't get a home charger (Garmin do a travel kit that includes this) but you can charge the device with a wall charger that has a "mini" USB port (not micro) there are plug chargers (or even power banks) available that can do USB charging, all you need is a mini USB lead. I rarely home charge the device
Quick summary of the good and bad points.

Pros:
+ Decent 5" touchscreen, fairly clear and bright.
+ Bang per buck is good on the Nuvi 50 it's a pretty good deal
+ Simple and easy to use
+ It does have speed camera alerts
+ Has a micro SD slot so can be upgraded with larger map areas
+ Street name and postal code search, as well as GPS coordinates
+ Points of interest database (shops, hotels, fuel stations, local attractions etc)
+ Has the lane assist dual screen display (handy for motorway driving)

Cons:
- No traffic trends, this isn't a massive downer but some Garmins use historical data for traffic (time of day etc) , and will avoid heavy congestion roads.

SEPTEMBER 2014 - ENTERED POSTCODE AND IT TOOK ME TO A PLACE 4 MILES FROM THE CORRECT LOCATION !!!

THE LACK of CLEAR initial INSTRUCTIONS IS surprising,
The good news is.....they are available on-line...(but could still be a bit more user friendly for a novice like me).
The bad news is......the USB cable required to connect the unit to your pc is not supplied (Confusing! because it is necessary to download essential updates before you start).
This is my first purchase of a SatNav so I've nothing to compare it with, here goes anyway....
Graphics are absolutely 5 star,
After a 450 mile journey with multiple destinations I am generally happy with it.
Rural'ish locations are not it's favourite. Rather annoyingly, at several roundabouts the voice stated "exit onto xyz road (or lane etc)" but there is not a street name to be seen, but there was always a directional sign pointing the way to one or more destinations. "Heading in direction of 'one of the destinations on the sign'" would be reassuringly helpful.
It also struggled to re-compute when I made some wrong turns in a rural village (shortage of street name signs again).
The only other niggle I have is when the speed limit / safety camera information is out of sync. Three times this happened, and one of these lasted for well over 5 miles;- The Speed limit was 60mph, the Garmin stated it was 70mph, The Garmin Camera Warning displayed a speed limit of 50mph and repeatedly warned me audibly that I was exceeding it's erroneous interpretation of the speed limit. Quite annoying when you're doing 55 in a 60 zone.
All-in-all I quite like it, especially as I don't have to keep trying to remember which motorway exit I'm looking for which left me with a nice relaxed drive. And those graphics really are the biz.

Really thrilled with this sat nav. I was worried that set up might be difficult as I'm not the most technical of people and have no one to help, but you plug it into the cigarette lighter, turn on the engine and follow the instructions. The pad that sticks it to the window screen is also easy to use. I tried it on a journey I knew, which wasn't the prescribed route, and the sat nav just adjusted instructions once it caught up. Also gives warnings about speeding camera sites. This is my first sat nav and I wonder what took me so long!
