If you purchase a Garmin nüvi 52LM GPS with Lifetime subscription, you will receive up to 4 map data updates per year, when and as such updates are made available on Garmin’s website, for 1 compatible Garmin product until your product’s useful life expires or Garmin no longer receives map data from its third party supplier, whichever is shorter.

A product’s “useful life” means the period during which the product
(a) has sufficient memory capacity and other required technical capabilities to utilize current map data and
(b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs.

A product will be deemed to be out of service and its useful life to be ended if no updates have been downloaded for such product for a period of 24 months or more. Unless otherwise stated, the updates you receive under the subscription will be updates to the same geographic map data originally included with your Garmin product when originally purchased. In some instances, your Garmin product might not have sufficient memory remaining for you to load an update to the map data, in which case you will need to either
(a) select reduced map data coverage for your updates, or
(b) purchase separately a microSD™/SD™ card (if and as applicable to your Garmin product) and load all or a portion of the map data coverage for your updates to the card and insert the card into the microSD/SD card slot contained in your Garmin product.

If neither of the measures in (a) or (b) can be used to address your product’s lack of sufficient remaining memory, then Garmin may conclude that the “useful life” of your product has expired. Garmin may terminate your nüMaps Lifetime subscription at any time if you violate any of the terms of this agreement or your subscription. Your nüMaps Lifetime subscription may not be transferred to another Garmin product.

Superb GPS Out Performs Units At Twice The Price

By Peter Suslock on August 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
Having been born with the dreaded condition NSOD (no sense of direction) a GPS is essential if I’m ever to end up getting to where I need to go. My last GPS was the Garmin 3790 which was excellent – however it froze up and died on exactly the 29th day of use which allowed me 24 hours to return it to Amazon.

As I researched a new GPS I found it more complicated than putting the specs together for a computer. Reviews are incredibly mixed on each model. All of them have plenty of pros and no shortage of cons. I decided to call the dedicated number for GPS units on Amazon. And doing so was an excellent experience and one that I highly recommend to anyone frustrated over which unit to buy. Amazon also has consultant Reps for computers, cameras, televisions and so on.

These folks don’t work on commission – so there’s no vested interest on their part in the recommendations the make it’s a zero pressure approach and really an under estimated service – but a very valuable one. After going through the applications I was looking for i.e.: map updates, voice recognition, large screen etc – I was steered to the Garmin 52LM.

At the low price of $145 I was at first skeptical as the 3790T was $300

As I prowled through all the GPS units on Amazon the 52LM had the highest percentage of positive reviews – I was sold.

Quick Specs:
* Preloaded Maps
* Card Reader microSD
* Interface USB
* Voice Street name announcement,
* Navigation instructions
* Included Software Garmin City Navigator North America NT,
* nüMaps Guarantee
* Antenna Built-in
* Internal Memory Flash
* Speed limit warning
* Junction view
* Emergency Help
* Lifetime map updates
* Custom POIs (points of interest)
* Built-in speaker
* Gorgeous Display
* Trip Computer let’s you Avoid toll roads
* Connector Type is USB
* Battery – Lithium ion

Included Accessories;
USB cable
Suction cup mount
Car power cable

This unit offers tremendous bang for your buck, I miss the photographic quality of the street maps of the 3790T but considering how beautifully the 52LM performs it’s one issue that’s easy to get past. The voice directions are crystal clear, set up is effortless and the large screen really makes an enormous difference.

You can spend more – however if your looking for a solid non problematic GPS that’s going to get you to and from where you need to go, warn you of traffic delays, provide alternative routes and is absolutely effortless to set up and update – You’ll be hard pressed to find a better GPS at any price.

Highly Recommended.
