Garmin nuvi 56

5" Portable Navigation System

Dedicated, Easy-to-use GPS Guidance

For driving directions on the road, put away the smartphone and power on your nüvi. nüvi 56 is an easy-to-use, dedicated GPS navigator that does not rely on cellular signals and is unaffected by cellular dead zones. nüvi provides easy-to-follow, spoken turn-by-turn directions with street names.

nüvi 56 features a bright, 5.0” dual-orientation display, for use horizontally or vertically.

Detailed Maps

nüvi 56 arrives pre-loaded with detailed maps of the U.S. and Canada.

Navigate Complex Interchanges with Ease

nüvi 56 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 56 has a search field that makes it easy to find addresses and millions of points of interest, 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 56 quickly returns your results.

More Information Right on Your Map

No need to search for a hard-to-read or nonexistent sign; with a glance at nüvi 56, you’ll see your current street. nüvi also displays speed limit, current speed and estimated arrival time.

With the Up Ahead feature, you can easily find places you want – like restaurants, gas stations, ATMs and shops – without leaving the map. Best of all, Up Ahead is customizable, so you can always know the location of favorite destinations along your route.

You can access Up Ahead and other useful information from the map tools panel. Conveniently remain on your map screen and still find places Up Ahead, change the volume and more.

School Zone Warnings

nüvi 56 issues an audible alert and displays an onscreen warning whenever you approach a school zone.

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.
