    Default Help Garmin Drive Smart 51LMT-S ..no laudable over speed ping

    Hi all, I have just swapped my Garmin nuvi 2495 with a Garmin Drive Smart 51 lmts as the 2495 packed up. With the 2495 if one went over the speed limit, a continuous ping,ping would be heard. Although the new 51 lmts has same feature, I have ticked all the audio boxes but when exceeding the speed limit to test the unit, it only flashes in the vehicle speed box and no audio noises heard. I have updated the unit to 2019 maps etc.

    Please help,tis.

    On my older Nuvi the 3d map display option will only change the speed to red when over the speed limit. When I select the 2d overhead display of the map it will beep when I am over the speed.

    Hi Craig, I got the same Garmin as you about 3 months back.
    I dont know to much about GPS'S and things,
    But mine pings only once when I am over the speed limit,
    It then keeps quite and leaves it up to SWAMBO to carry informing me about how irresponsible I am.

    Okay,report back. Managed to get hold of Garmin. They said they removed the over speed alert on all the new Garmins as it caused driver distraction.

    I bought the DriveSmart 61LMT-s recently and it pings when the speed limit changes from say, 120 to 100. It does not ping when you exceed the limit but the color of the speed reading changes to red

    It is not a Garmin issue.

    The reason you don`t hear an audible warning is because the 250D can`t exceed any speedlimit

    I know.....I use 2 of them on the farm
