Garmin DriveSmart 61LMT-D manual

Manual requires Adobe Acrobat Reader
Download a free copy here

This product is a sophisticated electronic device which requires that you read, understand, and act upon the information given in the instruction manual (usually available via the above 'manual' link). You will need internet access and, in accordance with the manufacturers’ recommendations, regularly seek out and accept all firmware or software updates offered by the manufacturer. All GPS devices need to ‘see’ the satellites in the sky. Therefore you will need to know that your vehicle does not have glass that will block or impede the GPS signal.

Updates to this product are via the internet. At this product page we state compatibility with specific versions of current internet connection devices, for example: PC, laptop, MAC, smartphone etc. The Consumer Contract Regulations allow you 14 days, from receipt of purchase, to check compatibility with your internet connection device/s. If you choose to replace or update your PC, MAC etc. neither we nor the manufacturer will be responsible if the new/replacement Operating System (OS) is not compatible with the purchased product.

Garmin DriveSmart 61LMT-D Questions and Answers

Question: I have one of these, but have lost everything which attaches it to the car - there was a suction cup etc supplied but that has been lost also.   What I really want is the parts to attach it to an air vent. Can you advise?

Answer: Garmin DriveSmart 61 accessories can be viewed and purchased from ActiveGPS.

While Garmin produce a air vent it is not recommended for use with the Garmin DriveSmart 61. On the webpage we say “This mounting option fits the majority of vehicle air vents for use with all but the 6-inch and 7-inch screen Garmin sat nav models.” The Garmin DriveSmart 61 is a 6-inch sat nav. Your sat nav model is too heavy for the air vent mount and will likely break the air vent and/or vents in your vehicle with the weight of the Garmin DriveSmart 61.

The accessories I would recommend from the Garmin DriveSmart 61 accessory webpage are:

1. Garmin DriveSmart 61 Vehicle Power Cable - power and charge your Garmin DriveSmart 61 from your vehicles cigarette lighter socket.

2. Garmin DriveSmart 61 Suction Cup Mount - mount your Garmin DriveSmart 61 on your vehicles windscreen or dashboard*. *For dashboard mounting you must additionally buy the Garmin DriveSmart 61 Portable Friction Mount.

Do you also require traffic information? If you do, please supply your  Garmin DriveSmart 61 serial number to us. Garmin DriveSmart 61 ending LMT-S pair with your smartphone for traffic services, while models ending LMT-D, use DAB radio broadcast signal.
