Garmin Drive 61 LM GPS Navigator is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mother's Little Helper for sure It is now two years since I bought this Garmin Navigator, I did not take extended warranty as I was fairly broke at the time, as it turns out I haven't needed it. It is just like having a friend in the passenger seat who knows the way and all the short cuts, it has made my life so easy, I don't know how I got anywhere without it, I've certainly not taken wrong turns or got lost in the time I've had mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product. I recently replaced my Garmin 2589 LMT (5inch) GPS with a Garmin Drive 61 LM (6inch) GPS. The difference is noticeably better. It is much more readable, with a faster start up and also easy to navigate among all the options. I can only recommend it to anyone looking for a GPS that does its job without a hitch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good GPS Very happy with the product. The only downside is that it doesn’t have voice warning for red light & speed cameras. It only has a very small red signal flashing at the left bottom of the screen that I’m unable to read when driving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent features I bought a Garmin 2 years ago while in the USA - it got me all around 20 states without one lost kilometre. Wanted one for Australia and as the old saying goes - when on a good thing - Stick to it.
