Garmin Drive 61

I have been using the Garmin Drive 61 LM GPS navigator since I bought my first car in 2018. Most folks use a smartphone, but I intentionally chose a GPS navigator so that I could have a dedicated device that would not be distracted by calls, text notifications, mobile OS problems or battery problems. I also chose the model with the biggest display - this one is 6-inch, so that I could see the roads and surroundings clearly. All these motivations have proven themselves over the past 3 years and the Drive 61 has become an integral part of my car. I have been using it both for long drives outside the city and also for short drives inside the city to unfamiliar locations.
