Garmin nuvi 52LM UK 5" Sat Nav with UK and Ireland Maps with Free Lifetime Map Updates
n Essential Sat Nav For Simple And Safe Navigation
With its bright 5-inch display and spoken turn-by-turn directions, nüvi 52LM is an easy-to-use, dedicated sat nav that helps you get to your destination easily.
It comes with Lifetime Map updates for free, 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 52LM arrives loaded with detailed maps of the UK and Ireland and thousands of Points of Interest (POIs) such as restaurants, businesses and shops.
Keep Maps Up-To-Date
However, roads change, businesses open and close and new traffic lights or roundabouts appear. With nüvi 52LM 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).
Driving Guidance You See and Hear
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 52LM displays speed limit, current speed and accurate time of arrival. With a quick glance, you can read the name of your current street.
Keep an Eye on the Latest Speed and Safety Cameras with Safety Camera Alerts
nüvi 52LM 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.

The screen is clear and easy to read, It automatically switches to night time colours. They are the good points.
Locally it always directs me to drive two sides of a triangle when there is a direct route on a good road which is much quicker. When I disobey the satnav and take the quicker route it recalculates and gives me a reduce ETA.
On a recent visit to Cornwall it directed me down a very small single track road rather than stay on the parallel A road! On my return journey from Cornwall I choose to take the A30 over Bodmin moor. The SatNav wanted to go on the A38 through Plymouth which I know is a slower route. The nuvi kept recalculating the route constantly wanting me to go miles out of my way to get back to the A38. When eventually it gave up and settled on my chosen route the ETA dropped by 40 minutes!!!!!!
In London it directed me to leave the road I was on turn left on to a side road then right then right agin back to the road I was on in the first place.
I would not recommend anyone to buy it until the route planning is fixed.
Gave wrong directions, and didnt take me to the right destination, Item returned and bought a tomtom.
Despite being new it lacks some basic features that my old one did really well:
- You cannot navigate to a town centre, it demands you choose a street before you can plan a route. This is hopeless, I ended up picking a street at random and then using road signs, but this can mean you go to the wrong side of town or even take completely the wrong route.
- You cannot plot a route from A to B, only from where you are to where you want to be. I often want to try out a route to see how long it'd take etc, but Garmin don't make that possible.
Which brings me onto the other MAJOR issue - the time estimation algorithm is hopeless. It seems to assume you can do 30mph in towns (regardless of traffic lights, roundabouts etc) and 60mph on country roads (regardless of bends, incline etc). It reliably underestimated journey time by at least 10%, and often by 10 minutes in the hour, unless the whole route was on motorways. I contacted Garmin about this soon after I bought it and they said it would learn from my driving habits what average speed to use on different roads. Well that's useless since I use a SatNav on roads I haven't used before, not on routes I know, and anyway after using it for a year it was just as bad, so that was either a lie or just plain ineffective.
I tried really hard to get on with it, but it went on eBay last week and I replaced it with a TomTom that works like a dream.
