Motorcycle and Car Mounts for Garmin Nuvi 2455LMT, 2455LT, 2475LT and 2495LMT GPS

This line of GPS models was introduced by Garmin in 2011.  These units are still in use several years later and we’re finding the GPS is outlasting the mounts, hence our article about mounting options for this series of popular devices.  All of these GPS models have a subscription to traffic alerts and two have a lifetime map subscription.  Devices like the Garmin Nuvi 2455LMT with an LMT or LM after the number have a lifetime map subscription and those that have an LT or LMT have a lifetime traffic subscription. If you have any of these units that have a traffic subscription, … Read more…

Garmin Nuvi 2595LMT, 2595LT and 2595LM Motorcycle and Car Mounts

This line of GPS models was introduced by Garmin in 2012.  The 2595 line of devices were introduced as an update to Garmin’s extremely successful 2555 lineup.  The difference between the two is that the 2595 has Bluetooth and voice recognition.  Nice features that result on the driver not having to manually interface with the GPS.  Devices like the Garmin Nuvi 2595LMT with an LMT or LM after the number have a lifetime map subscription and those that have an LT or LMT have a lifetime traffic subscription.  As far as I can tell though, only the 2595LMT was available in … Read more…

Garmin Nuvi 2555LMT, 2555LT and 2555LM Motorcycle and Car Mounts

This line of GPS models was introduced by Garmin in 2011.  These units are still in use several years later and we’re finding the GPS is outlasting the mounts, hence our article about mounting options for this series of popular devices.  Most of these GPS units have a lifetime subscription to map updates which means that your GPS won’t be outdated and you can defer purchase of a replacement for quite a while.  Devices like the Garmin Nuvi 2555LMT with an LMT or LM after the number have a lifetime map subscription and those that have an LT or LMT have … Read more…

Garmin DriveLuxe 50LMTHD Car and Motorcycle Mounts

The Garmin DriveLuxe 50LMTHD is part of Garmin’s 2016 vehicle GPS refresh.  This is the top of the line GPS model for Garmin.  We previously discussed the base lineup which is now called the Garmin Drive.  I guess Garmin decided to retire the decade old Nuvi name because all of their vehicular GPS series has the word “Drive” within it including the previously discussed Garmin DriveAssist which is the new designation for the next generation of NuviCam.  I never understood what Nuvi meant and I’m guessing nobody else did.  It’s probably a wise move to drop the name. Anyway, Garmin DriveLuxe 50LMTHD … Read more…

Mounts for the Garmin Drive 50 and 60 2016 GPS Series

The Garmin Drive has put an end to the ten-year old Garmin Nuvi line of GPS units.  For 2016, the annual refresh of Garmin’s GPS has renamed the consumer GPS line to “Drive”.  So now you will see terms like Drive, DriveSmart, DriveAssist and Driveluxe.  Garmin Drive includes the basic maps of the US or Canada and you get to select the maps when you purchase the GPS.  If you buy it in the US, it’s more than likely to be the US map model.  If purchased in Canada, then it’s a good bet that Canada is also included, but check … Read more…

Garmin Nuvi Car Air Vent Mount Product Spotlight

The Garmin Nuvi series has been around for many years.  Ironically, the Garmin Nuvi Car Air Vent Mount was only recently introduced.  This was a real lost opportunity as several well known manufacturers sold thousands, perhaps millions of vent mounts at the expense of Garmin.  A real lost opportunity. The air vent is one of my favorite mounting locations.  I like it because it keeps the device near your line of site where it’s easy to see.  I also like the fact that it keeps your device out of clear site of any potential bad guys.  A vent mount is not … Read more…
