Today’s Ask Garmin question comes from Sharon, who wrote: “What does the L, M and T mean on all your nüvi devices? I need a quick and easy explanation so I know when I am looking in the store." We’re happy to divulge the code that denotes some of the “extras” that come with your nüvi purchase. The “LT” stands for lifetime traffic, which means that nüvi provides subscription-free traffic alerts for the life of the unit. This option is standard on most of our units and it’s a great sanity-saver for commuters or anyone who doesn’t care to sit idle in traffic jams. “LM” stands for lifetime maps, which means if your nüvi comes with this, you can download the latest maps for your unit up to four times a year, with no monthly fees. And, for those who want a truly an all-in-one product offering, devices with “LMT”, such as nüvi 3790LMT, come with lifetime maps and traffic.
Happy shopping. Be sure to check out the Garmin gift guide for more holiday ideas plus details on our Black Friday and Cyber Monday specials.
