  • Garmin DriveSmart 61LMT-D with Full Europe Maps 6" Sat Nav is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Room for improvement Bought to replace an aging TomTom. Large bright screen, excellent responsive touch screen. Loads of features including animal crossing warnings (only to almost be taken out on 3rd day of use by a herd of deer who didn't read the signs and crossed outside of the zones!). Attaches to windscreen well. I like the Smartlink option to connect up to mobile phone for hands-free calling and traffic info. The voice command option works very well generally but does require a quiet car and passengers. On the downside, the battery life is very poor. I haven't timed it but it went off after little over an hour from full charge, the first time only with one warning, the next time it happened there was no warning at all just powered off, not what you want in areas you don't know. Overall a nice product, there are bits of the TomTom I prefer such as the instructions approaching junctions and bits of this Garmin that win hands down, the number of features that this has is impressive and responsiveness is great.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Its ok if you get one that works Bought mine from The Reading Halfords, first one was faulty as we tried it in the shop, didn't want to switch on at all. The second one switched on but after trying it for a week it was all over the place with its gps positioning, so i rang garmin tech support who ran some tests and eventually said take it back and change it, which i did , or at least i tried to, Halfords not keen on taking the unit back without a lot of palava and histrionics, told them stick it I'll have a refund at which point they swapped it. Messers, better luck in a different shop maybe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sat Nav Garmin DriveSmart 61LMT-D Wanted a bigger screen and this 6" one is great, had Garmin sat nav before, I used it all over Europe, it was good then and still good with this one. Wife now has the smaller screen. Halfords fitted it for £30, all good, recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A tale of two Garmins My first Garmin was a 2548 LMT-D which I bought from Halfords about 4 years ago. This did me proud over the years, although there were one or two excursions along farm tracks! The main failing with this model was its incompatibility with Windows PCs (7, 8, 8.1 and 10) where it may have got recognised by the PC in only one in ten connections. It made updates a nightmare. Also, the unit was getting unreliable as it would crash during journeys, and sometimes it wouldn’t turn on until connected to a power source even though the battery wasn’t flat. I’d done my research into other Sat Navs, but I was put off buying another well-known make on advice from other users, so I decided to stick with Garmin. I was initially drawn to the 61 LMT-D because of the functions available, screen size (6.9 inch) and WIFI capability. The reduced price at Halfords (£249.99 down to £199) was a useful incentive to buy. Connecting my home hub was easy, and product registration was a doddle. Software updates were another matter. It took seven attempts to get the latest Maps update (Version 2018.10). I soon found that you wouldn’t get anywhere downloading updates without a satellite signal – this never seemed an issue with the old Garmin. Initially I tried WIFI, but after three attempts lasting several hours the download failed with only a few percent to go. I then tried a direct connection to my PC (yes, Windows did recognise the device!) and eventually found that with a USB extension lead and with the Garmin on the window-sill, the 7GB download was completed in about 40 mins (my 30Mbps broadband probably helped). Using the 61 LMT-D is a dream. The increased screen size has made navigation easier, particularly when meeting complicated road junctions. Also, the touch screen is much more responsive than the old model – map tracking was always difficult with the 2548. I won’t go through the other new features that the 61 LMT-D offers, some of which I haven’t yet investigated, but I will end with a question: Why, with the same version software and with the same preferences, do the two Sat Navs give different routes for my journey from Surrey to Worthing? The old unit says the fastest route is 44 miles, whereas the new unit says 61 miles, with a detour almost into Brighton! I did try the longer route, and I probably saved ten minutes, proving that the new unit gave a better route.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit ... I've had my 61LMT-D a couple of weeks now and think it is a great piece of kit. I've owned many Garmins and TT's over the years. Screen size and resolution probably the best I've seen over the years, the slim profile of the frame means you get a near 7 inch screen in a unit that is comparable with most 6 inch devices. Screen brightness and resolution is excellent. The Nav features are nothing new or special, it does a good job the way pretty much all satnavs do these days The voice recognition works surprisingly well for inputing nav instructions. The voice synthesis for reading out incoming text messages is good. I bought at £250 and made a point if asking if there were likely to be any offers in the near future. My only disappointment is not with the device but with Halfords since they have now dropped the price to £200 which makes it an real bargain given what the unit has to offer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart kit Used this on two journeys so far and I must say it has done me proud. The traffic feature is brilliant and very accurate when travelling on the motorways. I saved 40 mins of travel time when diverted during the bank holiday madness! Voice command works ok but no so good if you have too much background noise. The route finder works well and loads up fairly quick. The only snag is this device has only the European maps as standard so if you wish to fly to planet Grovelmick then you will need to download the star chart and interstellar flight planner app. Loads more yet to work out on this device such as the cloaking functions and magic ogre dust cartridge management app. So for a Gelgamek bishop who is canvassing for support for the local parish I would truly recommend ra ra ra ra ra ra ra raaa.
