Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice upgrade! This replaced an older Garmin GPS. I like the highly visible screen, the search features and better access to everything. I took advantage of the Garmin birthday discount so it was that much better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Auto GPS I've found The added locations are useful and even better is the ease of using voice commands. It may not be completely intuitive, but it sure is better than anything up til now. Garmin has done a wonderful job with the display, options for travel and giving meaningful verbal directions. When a major update seemed to crash the system, support was easily available which is rarely the case these days. Better yet was their willingness to stick with the issue right up to replacing the unit for me. So that's a good product with good support at a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the unit but... I had an older Garmin and really liked it. This unit apparently has some nice features, but with no provided manual I'm having issues figuring them out. I will have to print it out to figure them out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I liked it so much I bought two As a standalone device it is superb as it works very well with the Garmin Drive app. However its interface with the vehicle Bluetooth is horrible. Because of the lousy description, it took me days of experimentation to figure out just how to use it, and I have decided to listen to the driving directions on the device rather than use Bluetooth. Still, if I want to stream audio by Bluetooth while listening to the directions from the device, I have to use Apple CarPlay. And even that doesn’t work quite as I expected. Because of the user guide’s terrible directions, it took me a while to realize that, for me to utilize Bluetooth, the device had to be connected to my smart phone and that there was no direct connection between the device and the car’s Bluetooth. In my 20 years of using Garmin’s, my most frequent complaint has been that you do a terrible job of describing your products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Backup unusable After more hours as I can count, I gave up trying to download and backup the data on my new Garmin GPS. All I wanted to do was upload from my old Garmin GPS and download to my new Garmin GPS. This proved to be literally impossible. Life and technology are not supposed to be this difficult. Until Garmin gets its technology act together, don't even bother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but too many bells and whistles I wanted a slightly larger upgrade from my old nuvi 55LM. This one is really nice and I like the voice command function. I doubt I will upload the phone app or use the bluetooth function. I just needed a good basic gps. My only complaint is the manual that can be downloaded from the internet. It covers several different models and has a lot of stuff that doesn't pertain to my specific model which is very annoying. They should have a manual for each specific model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Temperature issues, too many unwanted programs While on the dashboard when the sun hits it the face becomes unresponsive to touch commands. It has locked up fairly frequently requiring a reboot which is not possible while driving. The similar older garmin never had any of these issues. There are so many programs that i dont want to use, it complicates its usefulness . I like the high resolution screen but because of all the issues, I am happy I still have my old Garmin to use. The new features are not worth the problems

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not The Best Upgrade Compared To My nüvi 3490 After 10 years with the Garmin nüvi 3490LMT, I decided to upgrade to the newer DriveSmart 66. The nüvi 3490 did everything I wanted, but sometimes connecting to a satellite was slow and the mini USB plug was starting to have some issues. It is a bit loose and doesn’t always connect. The DriveSmart didn’t appear to have any special features over the nüvi, but I figured in ten years there had to be some internal improvements. From the specs I could see that there were some things that were definitely a downgrade. Most significant was the battery life. Only one hour for the DriveSmart as opposed to the nüvi’s 4 hours. The size was also significantly larger on the DriveSmart. I was fine with the larger screen size, but the thickness of the device was now twice that of the nüvi, .7 inches as opposed to .35 inches. The new unit is over ½ inch thick. You would think with all the additional space in the case they could improve or retain battery life. On the positive side, in a side by side comparison, the DriveSmart does find satellites quicker, usually in under a minute. Indoors, the nüvi usually has problems connecting to a satellite. The DriveSmart is slow to connect indoors too, but is still faster than the nüvi and usually connects. That is the one noticeable positive for the DriveSmart. Now the negatives and the reason I am keeping the nüvi. We travel a lot. I mean everywhere around the world. I have nearly every map Garmin or third party vendor maps (when a Garmin map isn’t available like Japan) available. I have all the maps on a micro SDXC card. The card works perfectly in the nüvi. In the DriveSmart, the same card causes a pop up message that the maps cannot be unlocked. Then another message that the maps are corrupt and cannot be used. The exact same card works in the nüvi without any issues. The individual cards all work fine in the DriveSmart, just not the combined maps. They are all in one folder. The instructions say I can load multiple maps on the DriveSmart, but it must be done differently than the nüvi. So, there is some kind of backward compatibility issues. Because it is a GPS, we use the unit as a clock for the local time. It’s a very useful feature if you travel overseas a lot as we do. On the nüvi, there is a world clock app with multiple time zones plus an alarm clock app that uses the local time. Neither app is available on the DriveSmart. I don’t know why they would remove such a valuable feature. Now we have to carry around a travel alarm clock and need to figure out the local time wherever we are. I know the unit gives the local time on the splash screen, but we like to know the time in several time zones, especially home or destinations, when travelling overseas. Not real convenient for us. The nüvi had quite a few other apps we used like a calculator, unit converter, and last spot where we had been. It is supposed to be for where you parked your car, but we used it a lot to mark where a meeting place (on tours) for leaving or to take us back to a reference point. These apps are no longer on the DriveSmart. On startup, there must be a lot of things happening in the background on the newer DriveSmart. It takes longer to get to the main selection menu than the nüvi. It isn’t a significant amount of time, but it is noticeable. One booted up, it is fine. But completing the startup routine is definitely slower with the DriveSmart. We do a lot of walking when overseas. The larger size of the new DriveSmart makes it a bit bulkier to carry. The nüvi easily fit into my shirt pocket or into a small internal pouch on my sling bag. The newer DriveSmart does not fit as well in either. Also, with the limited battery life, I now have to carry an external power pack to ensure it doesn’t die and leave us stranded in an unfamiliar area. So, the DriveSmart is bigger, bulkier, has very limited battery life and I now have to carry an additional item (power pack) that is heavier than the GPS. The nüvi had a pedestrian mode. Normally this isn’t an issue and we have used the nüvi in automotive mode while walking. But sometimes, there were alternative routes given for the pedestrian mode that weren’t available for an automobile. These were usually trails and pedestrian only areas. It was a nice feature, especially in Europe where there are a lot of back alleyways and stairs available. The way the DriveSmart mounts to the mounting clip is now very inconvenient. With the nüvi, I just aligned the bottom pins with the clip, do some minor adjustment and it clipped in. Very easy and fast. The DriveSmart has a circular hole in the middle of the device on the back that you have to position on the mating mounting clip. I have never mounted it correctly on the first try and usually have to take the mount down so I can see how to properly align it. In the car, I just put the GPS on the seat or center console so it isn’t an issue. But at home, I use the mount and it is a real pain to try and get it on the mount. Other minor complaints. The on/off switch is now a button on the back of the unit. Maybe it’s just me, but I prefer it to be on the top or side of the device. I seem to always be trying to find that button. The Garmin 5 Inch and 6 Inch Universal Carrying Case available for the DriveSmart is huge, about 1 ½ inches larger than the GPS unit top to bottom and side to side. That really makes the unit inconvenient to carry while walking. I like using the case just for screen protection and an added layer. The nüvi had a Garmin ‘envelop’ slide in case that fit perfectly and was just a bit larger than the GPS, maybe ¼ inch top to bottom and 1/8 inch side to side. Much thinner and obtrusive. That has been my experience with the Garmin DriveSmart 66. I am keeping it because of the faster satellite acquisition. For travel, I will stick to the nüvi for now. It just has more useful features, like a world clock and pedestrian mode. Battery life is a serious concern for us too. Having to always have it plugged in for driving is a minor irritation, but I can deal with that. It’s the app and mobile issues that I feel need to be addressed before it becomes my go to device for travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Okay I have been using this for 4 months. I have found that it will shut down in hot weather as I live in Arizona. First time it happened the temperature was in the upper 90's. So what we found is when we park we put the Garmin down on the floor of the car out of the direct sun coming in through the front window. The other problem it can't find some streets but we can find the addresses on our iPhone. Other than that it is a great device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointing for Garmin Very happy to get it as a gift as I am a previous Garmin user and purchaser. The first problem was the device would freeze up for no reason. When I use the Garmin Drive App, my phone freezes up and the DriveSmart keeps asking for Alexa, which I don't have. Then for no reason the screen would go dark to an unreadable state. I ditched the drive app and upgraded the software for the second time. I found out the blue tooth connection to my phone goes back to the ask Alexa thing. It also makes the screen go dark and unrecoverable unless I reboot the device and my phone making sure Bluetooth is off. It works now but it's very frustrating when I forget to turn off Bluetooth on my phone before turning on the DriveSmart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some nice updated features, but a bit disappointed I bought this at Best Buy about 3 weeks ago to use during this Memorial Day Holiday trip. All seemed to be working well until the 2nd day of my 800-mile 4-day trip, when the estimated time went from 11:54am to 6:32 pm on the screen. We arrived about 11:58am! The third day, after driving 100 miles, we stopped for gas. The unit would not turn back on when we started the car to continue our trip. It was a little warm on the back so I unplugged it for a half hour. I plugged it back in, and it started up and worked fine. An hour later, we stopped at a road side rest. When we started again, the Garmin 66 would not start up. Again, I unplugged it and let it sit idle for a half hour. It worked again. I believe I found a solution, although not a good one to this problem. Before stopping and turning off the car, I cancel the route and then I manually turn the Garmin unit off. I do the reverse when starting again and it worked for the rest of the trip. My previous Garmin Drivesmart, lasted me for years and upon turning off the car would give me a message that it would turn off in 30 seconds. This one just says powering down and cuts off. Not sure if this is a "glitch" that someone can fix with an update, but it will be a pain to have to go through this every time I want to stop the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DriveSmart 66- Very Good add-on GPS The DriveSmart66 is a very good add-on GPS unit. The screen is bright and clear. The menus are easy to navigate. The provided mount is also very good. I was disappointed, however, that it is set-up only for streaming from a smart phone. It does not have an internal music player capable of playing music stored in memory or on the SD card. There does not appear to be a way to install such a player. Such a feature should be expected on such a high-end device to give the user more versatility. One star off for this reason. Other than this, the unit does everything you would expect and does it very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade over my old model, but still not perfect I got this as a gift to replace my old 205 from 2009. The screen is probably the best part. Much clearer than the previous one. I also like the ability to answer my phone over it, and also the voice command abilities. There are some issues though. First, the unit does not understand voice commands terribly well. It doesn't hear things right and comes up with words you didn't even say. My smartphone can understand me, and can even discern which spelling of a word it should use based on what I say, so why can't this unit? Also, the routes it takes do not always make sense. Again, Google maps shows me the fastest route, and this GPS wants to take me some other way. Even as I force the issue and go "my way," it wants me to make a U turn, until suddenly it realizes I'm on to something and drops my arrival time 5 minutes. Why doesn't it give me the fastest way from the start? And finally, I have been fighting with the volume. I want the volume for GPS to be one setting, and phone another setting. But it seems when it connects to my phone, it changes it, and that is very inconvenient and bordering on distracting when I have to manually adjust it when I'm driving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not as good as I'd hoped I like the form factor, maps and the features. I've been using Garmin for years and really like them. The screen on this one is not working well and it's different from the previous models. I touch over and over in different ways and places and nothing happens. I have to blow on my fingers repeatedly to get it to work and it's time consuming and frustrating. I don't see a way to change the sensitivity or anything to help. I also don't like the way it connect to Mac. I have a vehicle that I like that I got from the Garmin Garage years ago when I first started using Garmin. It's always been easy to move it from one GPS to the next. This GPS does not show up on my Mac as a separate "hard drive" like all the others do when I use Garmin Express and the only difference on that part that I can see is it's USB-C now...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better satellite pickup I was having trouble with old GPS (Garmin Pilot - lasted a long time!) so I got the Garmin Dive Smart 66. It's really good. Picks up satellites much better than the old models in bad weather although there is some interference even with this one. The map is really a big help in an unfamiliar city. It specifies the streets, etc. saving a lot of searching for street signs. The one thing I have fault with is that sometimes the touch screen does not respond to instructions when touching the menu. You have to pull over - if you can - to hold the unit and fool around with it to get what you need. This could be bothersome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great device for a good price I've owned my Drivesmart66 for a few weeks and have gotten good use out of it. I use it primarily in the city. In the past when I used a GPS device to navigate around the city, I've gotten lost and had to ask for directions. This unit has always gotten me to my destination using the shortest route. The coolest feature about the Drivesmart66 is voice recognition. All I have to do is say, "Ok Garmin" and say the address or general area I want to go to. I think that is a very important safety feature and the one I like the best. The only thing I would add to improve it would be to offer a variety of different voices to give me directions, for example, a male voice instead of the female voice. Maybe Garmin could audition people for this feature, just saying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the upgrade! I have been using an old nuvi and put off updating because the new ones don't have the same "always on" dashboard options as the nuvi as well as some other things I couldn't find in the sales documents. However, what you lose by updating, you gain in a lot of nice features on the 6" DriveSmart. For example, nowhere that I could find does the DS 66 have the elevation option, which is important to me, and it is available and can be used fairly easily. Traffic works a lot better (I don't use the smartphone app, just the device), and the display is amazing. It is not clear what functionality there is without the app, but I have everything I need without using my phone. I did find that Garmin Express did import my saved locations from the nuvi, but not my saved routes/trips that I regularly use. I also which the way to toggle showing your history on the map was as easy as on the nuvi. On the DS it is a couple of menus down, and I use this on the dirt roads so I can find my way back in case I get turned around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DriveSmart 66 - Pros and Cons I replaced a DriveSmart 5 expecting a more advanced model. Many newer features are great and operation has improved. Maps and Points of Interest (POI) are not as up to date as expected for a premium product. Route selection is lacking and old (no longer existing) POI remain while newer POIs many existing for over 2 years do not exist. Is there a way to identify new roads/interchanges and POI for inclusion in nearer term updates?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice GPS, but I'm not wild about Alexa. My favorite 66 feature is its response to spoken "Where to" requests. I like the larger screen, but the blue "Trip data" box takes up way too much space. I wish the power cord connection to the back of the unit was more flexible; I mount 66 on a dashboard pad and the short neck on the mount puts a lot of pressure on the connector. I'm probably not going to pay for Alexa subscriptions, and Alexa, so far, is messing with my phone's bluetooth connection. Traffic, weather, and weather radar are working fine. I am only a week into 66 ownership and hope to have the opportunity to update my review. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not convinced about upgrade I purchased a couple of these units thinking that they would be significant upgrades to my 3590LMT units. Unfortunately, I am not seeing significant improvements. I may just not connecting all of the dots yet. Very much a learning process for me. Available videos aren’t getting me there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems like a good gps I bought this a few days ago and having a real hard time setting it up. I can't figure out how to save the information I put in. There's nothing that says "save". Hope I can figure it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not good I'm not satisfied it's constantly not picking up the locations I'm trying to get to. I updated it and it still has certain locations I cannot pick up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very responsive and useful. I bought this unit to replace an earlier version. It has a larger screen (my choice) and has not disappointed. We take it with us on the plane when we rent vehicles as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Difficult to use I have had Garmin GPS's for my auto for many years. This on "66" is much more difficult to use, particularly the voice commands. It is not intuitive. Also no instructions are provided. They are available online but that is cumbersome to access and use. Unnecessarily complicated.
