Detailed Maps

nüvi 50 arrives loaded with detailed maps including points of interest (POIs) and navigation information. It is easy to find addresses and POIs such as businesses, stores, restaurants and other destinations. Simply search for what you’re looking for and press ‘Go’ to be directed there with turn-by-turn instructions and spoken street names for extra clarity. 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 50 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.

Information at a Glance

nüvi 50 displays speed limit, current speed and accurate time of arrival. It’s all the information you need as you travel. With a quick glance, you can also read the name of your current street to make sure you’re on the right track.

One-stop Device Management

Use Express at Garmin online to keep your nüvi 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.

Where am I?

The Where am I? emergency locator is a safety feature that can be very helpful if you break down or need a local service urgently. Simply tap the car icon on the map screen to get your exact coordinates, address and junction, contact details for vehicle recovery services and directions to your nearest hospitals, police and petrol stations. This can also be used to save your current location so you can find your way back there again easily in the future.

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.

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!
