With free lifetime¹ map updates, your routes are sure to reflect the most up-to-date maps, points of interest (POI) and navigation information available.

Garmin Real Directions

nüvi 57LM redefines “spoken turn-by-turn directions” with Garmin Real Directions, easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a friend using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. No more stress from trying to read street names. Instead, hear clearly spoken guidance, like “Turn left after the gas station.”

Foursquare Adds Millions of New POIs

nüvi 57LM makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs (points of interest) – that is, businesses, stores, restaurants or other destinations. Our POI database also includes accurate, relevant information sourced from Foursquare. Now, when you search, the most relevant Foursquare result appears at the top of the list. It’s an easy way to discover new and popular restaurants, shops and more.

Find Exactly Where You Need to Go

The Direct Access feature simplifies navigating to select complex destinations, like airports and shopping malls, by finding a place within a larger location. Direct Access even navigates through parking lots to find the entrance nearest your destination. When navigating to the mall, Direct Access gives additional location information for specific retail stores inside. For example, “Arriving at Woodfield Mall. Anthropologie is inside, on the upper level.”

Navigate Complex Interchanges with Ease

nüvi 57LM has lane assist with junction view that displays upcoming junctions and uses brightly colored arrows to indicate your proper lane.

Easier to Search, Quicker to Find

nüvi 57LM has a search field that makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs, in a single place. Now, simply enter a category (like “pizza”), an entire address (“1234 Sycamore Lane, Anytown, USA”) or a proper name (“Starbucks”) and nüvi 57LM quickly returns your results.

More Information At-a-glance

No need to search for a hard-to-read or nonexistent sign; with a glance at nüvi 57LM, you’ll see your current street. nüvi also displays speed limit, current speed and arrival time.

With the Up Ahead feature, you can easily find places you want without leaving the map. As you drive your route, Up Ahead constantly informs you of nearby services, including food, fuel and ATMs. Best of all, Up Ahead is customizable, so you can always know the location of favorite destinations along the way.

School Zone Warnings

nüvi 57LM issues an audible alert and displays an onscreen warning whenever you approach a school zone. The displayed speed limit also changes to reflect the school zone speed limit.

Add a Wireless Backup Camera

For a complete navigation solution, nüvi 57LM pairs with the BC 30 wireless backup camera (sold separately. Professional installation recommended). Once connected, you can easily see vehicles, pedestrians and other obstacles right on the nüvi display, as you move in reverse.

One-stop Device Management

Use Garmin Express to keep your nüvi up-to-date. Garmin Express makes it easy to update maps and software, transfer favorites to and from devices, and install free custom vehicles and voices.
