Overview

Essential Navigation Features

The nüvi 50 is part of Garmin's collection of essential sat navs providing GPS navigation at its simplest. It is ideal for those who want something easy-to-use and reliable. The nüvi 50 has a bright, extra-wide 5-inch touchscreen display and is preloaded with maps for the UK & Ireland.

nüvi 50 gives you accurate turn-by-turn directions and spoken street names so you know exactly where you're going. It has our unique Cyclops Speed Cameras, Lane Assist with Junction View and hundreds of thousands of points of interest such as hotels, restaurants and attractions. Above all it has user-friendly menus to make driving as stress-free as possible.

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.

Keep an eye on the latest speed cameras

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

There are hundreds of thousands of points of interest stored inside your nüvi. Whether you want to find a Chinese restaurant, a theatre or an airport, nüvi 50 will find what you want and you can get directed straight there.
