Intuitive navigating – Garmin Drive 51 LMT-S review

Garmin Drive 51 LMT-S is a excellent satnav that not just provides visual and audio navigation that is obvious and not confusing, it also warns you about sharp bends, upcoming school areas and when to take a break to prevent fatigue. We love that it uses landmarks and retail outlets in its information and it has a Bluetooth connection so you can create hands-free calls while driving. Even so, as it’s an entry level model, the only way to get traffic details is by connecting your smartphone to the satnav using Bluetooth and a mobile internet connection.Garmin DriveSmart 51 LMT-S

The Garmin Drive 51 LMT-S will give you a supporting hand when driving by earning you about sharp bends, near by school zones and even when you should take a break on a longer drive. The directions are clear and are given with plenty of time to make your turn, so there’s no confusion. You will need to connect your smartphone to the satnav using Bluetooth to be able to get traffic information.
