Garmin Drive 61 LM

Dedicated GPS Navigator with Driver Alerts

Driver Alerts: Know Your Surroundings

To encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness, Garmin Drive provides driver alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railroad crossings and animal crossings. Additionally, the navigator will warn you when driving the wrong way on a one-way street and alert you to nearby schools and school zones. Receive notifications for nearby red light cameras and speed cameras², and even get fatigue warnings³ that suggest potential rest areas after several hours of driving.

Pair with Your Smartwatch

What’s more, your nagivator wirelessly pairs with any Garmin Connect™-compatible smartwatch (sold separately). After they’re paired, you can receive navigation right on your wrist after parking your vehicle and walking toward your destination. Also, Watch Link lets you receive helpful driver alerts on you watch, such as alerts for upcoming school zones and more. Don’t worry about losing your car in a crowded parking lot or on a side street several blocks away from the venue you visited; your smartwatch provides compass guidance from your parked vehicle to your destination and back to your vehicle again.

Road Trips Just Got Better with TripAdvisor®

When you’re not familiar with the area, it’s nice to have something to point you in the right direction. That’s why we’re bringing TripAdvisor to your Garmin Drive navigator. View ratings for travel POIs, such as hotels, restaurants and attractions, along your route or near your destination. From the world’s largest travel site directly to your car, we’re helping you find the stops that make the entire journey part of the destination. Also locate new attractions with the built-in Trip Planner tool, which adds fun to road trips by suggesting interesting stops along the way.

 

Friendly Guidance from Garmin Real Directions™

Redefine “spoken turn-by-turn” directions with Garmin Real Directions. Our easy-to-understand driving directions use recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights in addition to spoken street names, guiding you as if your best friend is sitting in the passenger seat. No more squinting to read distant street signs. Just listen for Garmin Real Directions to tell you, “Turn left after the QT,” or “Turn right after the red building.” Following directions has never been easier.

 

Works with Garmin Backup Camera

For a complete navigation solution, Garmin Drive pairs with the BC™ 30 Wireless Backup Camera (sold separately; professional installation recommended). Once connected, you can easily see vehicles, pedestrians and other obstacles right on the Garmin Drive display as you move in reverse.

One-stop Device Management

Use Garmin Express™ to keep your Garmin Drive navigator up to date. Garmin Express makes it easy to update maps and software. The quality of map data can make all the difference between finding your destination and getting lost. High-quality HERE map data enables your Garmin device to provide you with the information you need, when you need it most — reducing the frustrations of driving by avoiding delays and cutting down the time you spend in your car.

More to See and Do with Foursquare®

Thanks to Foursquare, your Garmin Drive navigator is loaded with millions of additional popular places like restaurants, entertainment venues, shops and other points of interest. Next time you get in the car and take a ride, you might just find your new favorite spot.

Find Exactly Where You Need to Go

The Direct Access feature simplifies navigating to complex destinations, such as airports or shopping malls, by finding a place within a larger location. It even helps navigate through parking lots to find the entrance nearest your destination. Additionally, parking information based on historical data is available to help you find parking near your destination.

    The Drive 61 LM lives up to all expectations.

    A very worthwhile GPS for the car. Easy to follow menus and operation. A great product.

    Pros: The ease of operating the touch screen and the menus produced. Also it is very fast in picking up the satellites. Half an hour with the manual and a little practice you wil be on your way.
    Cons: Personally, I would like a little more contrast in the map display.

    Big screen, lifetime updates, good mapping.

    This is the 6th Garmin product I've bought, and this model has a similar look and feel to the others, which is good. I stick with garmin because they make a reliable product. I bought this model because I wanted the big screen, and as I live in a rural area I don't need live traffic updates. Normally Garmin gets the windscreen mounting right, but for some reason they've taken a backwards step with a fiddly latch mechanism which normally ends up with the adjuster ball parting from the socket. I then have to separate the ball from the GPS and remount the ball back in the cradle. This model does not have a live cradle, which means you have the extra step of removing the charger lead from the GPS when the GPS is removed from the windscreen area. If you live in a sunny climate, it is necessary to remove ALL makes of GPS from the direct rays of the sun when parked. Sounds a bit negative ? No. not really when you consider the low price and high reliability of both the hardware and software. For a few more dollars (possibly as low as $6 per unit) Garmin could fix the cradle issues. All in all, I believe this is one of the best value GPSs on the market.

    Pros: Big basic GPS with lifetime map updates.
    Cons: GPS mounting to windscreen sucker fiddly. Non-live cradle.
