The nüvi 50 is ideal for anyone who wants an easy-to-use, reliable sat nav. It is navigation at its simplest. It has a 5” touchscreen display for easy viewing, detailed maps of the UK and Ireland plus Lane Assist and Junction View to help you stay on the right track. Above all it has a user-friendly menu to make driving as stress-free as possible so you can concentrate on getting to your destination.
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.
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.
Avoid confusion at tricky exits and junctions. Lane Assist guides you into the correct lane for approaching turns and exits, and Junction View displays an onscreen image of the upcoming junction so you know what to expect in plenty of time.
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.
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.
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.
Not convinced on this one. Bought it for a family member and the number of times it has taken us up the garden path IE: wrong way is a little to unnerving. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Ellim
