Know the lane before it’s too late

Avoid confusion at tricky exits and junctions. nüvi 50 has Lane Assist to guide you into the correct lane for approaching turns and exits, and Junction View to display an image of the upcoming junction so you know what to expect. From a mile before the junction, the sat nav enters split screen mode to show your position on the map alongside a realistic depiction of your upcoming manoeuvre.

Garmin nüvi sat navs contain our unique Cyclops speed camera system, for real-time, direction-relevant and accurate alerts. Get overspeed warning and speed limit information as you approach one of hundreds of fixed, mobile, variable limit and temporary speed cameras. New or moved cameras are constantly tracked and Cyclops checks and updates its central database daily.

Find points of interest
