This is navigation at its simplest. nüvi 42LM is designed for those who want an easy-to-use, reliable sat nav. With the added advantage of Lifetime maps you will always have the latest roads as well as points of interest at your fingertips.
nüvi 42LM arrives loaded with detailed maps of the UK and Ireland or Western Europe, depending on which model you choose. With free lifetime¹ map updates, your routes are sure to reflect the most up-to-date maps, POIs (points of interest) and navigation information. New maps are available for download up to 4 times per year, for the life of your device, with no fees.
nüvi 42LM makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs such as businesses, stores, restaurants and other destinations. It arrives preloaded with POIs, so there’s no need for you to enter that address information. Just select one — or many — and navigate there, quickly and easily.
Keep an eye on the latest speed cameras
nüvi 42LM contains our unique Cyclops Speed 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.
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.
