- 6-inch screen
- UK and Republic of Ireland maps with lifetime updates
- Safety camera locations
Offering a good basic set of navigation features alongside a sizeable six-inch screen, the Garmin Nuvi 65 LM
is a sub-£150 sat nav that offers great value for money. Taken from the new Essential range, it features a menu system that should be familiar to Garmin sat nav users. It comes with free lifetime map updates and includes Lane Assist and Junction View to help out at complex motorway interchanges. Voice commands come out nice and clear and while map refreshes have their sluggish moments it won’t prevent you from getting to your destination.
Despite the lack of support for live traffic or voice activation this is still a great budget sat nav that covers all your basic needs. If you are looking for a similarly priced sat nav with a smaller screen, the TomTom GO 40
is a good alternative.
At time of review the Garmin nuvi 65 LM was available for £139.99.
