Garmin Sat Nav

Hi,  does anyone have a Garmin 51 lmt-s or 52mt-s?  I can't see any difference between them and they are both about the same price.  Just wondering if one is better than the other.  Thanks.

Curry's showing one ten quid more than the other.

Check out the specifications?

Usually more 'bangs for your bucks' if you are paying extra.

Reading between the lines they are both obsolete and have been replaced by the 52 series. I wonder whether the l relates to live traffic updates?

LMT is Lifetime maps and traffic, MT is just Maps and traffic. All traffic is via a smartphone hook up (S). Digital traffic is denoted by (D), but that is being discontinued next year. My last 2 satnavs have been Garmin as they allow your own POI's with proximity alerts,so I can use the Pocketgpsworld camera database.

Hi Mark,  thanks for your reply.  That is very helpful, I didn't realise what LMT meant.
