Garmin nuvi 42LM UK 4.3" Sat Nav with UK and Ireland Maps with Free Lifetime Map Updates

An Essential Sat Nav For Simple And Safe Navigation

With its bright 4.3-inch display and spoken turn-by-turn directions, nüvi 42LM is an easy-to-use, dedicated sat nav that helps you get to your destination easily.

It comes with Lifetime Map updates for free¹, speed camera alerts, Lane Assist and Junction View for simple and safe navigation so you don’t get lost.

Detailed Maps with Free Updates

nüvi 42LM arrives loaded with detailed maps of the UK and Ireland and thousands of Points of Interest (POIs) such as restaurants, businesses and shops.

However, roads change, businesses open and close and new traffic lights or roundabouts appear. With nüvi 42LM you can keep your sat nav up-to-date with the latest maps¹ that Garmin has to offer, with no fees. Map updates also contain fresher points of interest so your nüvi can give results that are more relevant and have greater accuracy.

Please note, with increased road detail and more points of interest, new maps could be larger in size; as a result, map updates may require a microSD card (sold separately).

Garmin nuvi 42 Driving guidance
Clear guidance at junctions
Driving Guidance You See and Hear - Clear Guidance at Junctions

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 before you reach the junction. The split screen mode shows your position on the map alongside a realistic depiction of your upcoming manoeuvre.

Information at a Glance

nüvi 42LM displays speed limit, current speed and accurate time of arrival. With a quick glance, you can read the name of your current street.

Garmin nuvi 42 safety camera alerts
With safety camera alerts
Keep an Eye on the Latest Speed and Safety Cameras with Safety Camera Alerts

nüvi 42LM contains Garmin’s Cyclops Safety 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.

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.

One-stop Device Management

This is mostly a cosmetic update to the Nuvi 50 model the features are very much the same as the older model, screen and specification are identical just a nicer case; some of the higher end features are missing so don't expect all the bells and whistles of more expensive models, but it's certainly decent value for money and a good choice for new users or folks looking for a simple easy to use device.Read more ›

As GPS goes, it does a reasonable job.

Given that there aren't any 'satellites' of course, it relies on ground triangulation which can be notorious for misplacing persons and sending them on a 'scenic route' which can be uncomfortable when you want to know where you are going.

Great price for a good basic satnav. I had to return one which kept crashing but the replacement works just fine.
