    Just received the Garmin DriveSmart 61 LMT and so far so good. Paired easily with my Samsung Note 8 smartphone and updating the maps was a breeze. Only negative feature is you must pay for a subscription for the "Smart Phone Link" App for the Weather to appear on the GPS, which is strange. Read more

    I bought this for use on my motorcycles because motorcycle GPS units either have terrible ratings (TomTom) or are stupidly and ridiculously overpriced. I like this unit very much. What I do not like is that Garmin has disabled the ability to link motorcycle headsets to it via bluetooth. Read more

    All in all, a fantastic GPS. Great navigation & display. This GPS has periodic software updates & Map updates on the go. And it gets me to circumvent traffic to save time. The only downside of this GPS for me on a molecular Level is the voice recognition & the Bluetooth Audio. Read more

    Except for the display, it is not a good auto GPS. It lacks many of the features I found in an earlier NUVI1695 and the added features are more annoyance than use. The announcement of every little curve and Railway crossing are largely useless and cannot be turned off. Read more
