For a budget Sat Nav it does the job pretty well This is mostly a cosmetic update to the Nuvi 50 model the features are very much the same as the older model, screen and specification are identical just a nicer case; some of the higher end features are missing so don’t expect all the bells and whistles of more expensive models, but it’s certainly decent value for money and a good choice for new users or folks looking for a simple easy to use device.As with every Garmin you get the windscreen mount suction pad and the in car power supply/chargerWhat you get:+ Fairly good 5″ LCD screen these have improved a lot over the years it’s not ultra high res (480 x 272) but quite readable in bright light and does the job just fine+ Route planning is fairly good most of the time, but take note to set the GPS to avoid smaller roads and set the journey time to “quickest time” this helps, like all GPS units I’ve used none are super intelligent but it will get you there+ You do have speed…

Entry level Sat Nav but with a nice 6″ screen Note Amazon have put a range of Garmin models on the same review page this review covers the “65LM 6” model”This is a newer model which is part of the updated “Essential Series”. Don’t expect a revolution in terms of features (still very much entry level for Sat Navigation), however you do get a bigger screen which is now a nice large 6 inches.Software across all the models is the same, where they differ is in terms of features. This comes with the unit, car mounting suction cup and lead for power in car (you can buy a travel kit that has a home charger)Quick summary on the main points of the 65LMPros:+ Good value for a larger 6″ screen with lifetime maps and updates+ The 6″ screen is quite sharp (800 x 480 pixels) and easy to read, it’s OK even in bright light (they have improved a bit here)+ You do get the “Trip planner” which is handy for longer multiple way-point journeys (the super budget models lack this) and the trip…
