The Drive is the entry-level model in Garmin's latest set of satnavs, with its primary focus on driver awareness.

The two other devices in the range include the DriveSmart, which partners with your smartphone to provide extra facilities, and the DriveAssist adding a built-in dashcam.

Garmin Drive 50LM – Mounting and Maps

Since the Drive is an entry-level satnav, it doesn t include any fancy magnetic mounting system.

But, unlike TomTom s entry-level GO 51, the mount is still a separate unit.

The latter doesn't appear to have any timing adjustment available other than turning it off completely.

This is because the GO 51 also includes TomTom's excellent Traffic service, which may only be available via a Bluetooth-paired smartphone, but it's worth enabling on a commute nonetheless.
