Looking for some advice please, my 1440 which has performed sterling service looks as if it might have almost reached the end of the road

A few year's back it developed a few horizontal dotted line's on screen, and I received advice on here, now the lines are up to six, and the battery isn't retaining it's charge although its okay when plugged in the car, and although I can work through this like me it isn't getting any younger

All I am looking for is like for like performance, and although it has CN Europe NT 2019.20 all I use is EU countries, and don't want to pay for things I won't use.

Currently I use a Garmin dashtop beanbag, and want to keep using it, if possible, although currently it engages lugs top and bottom of the unit, and the new ones have a ball socket at the back, which I assume I can use it I remove the ball mounted bracket?

Looking at various sites around the 100.00 price point several which might be suitable, and I wondered if anyone has practical experience of them, or recommend something else. A Drive 51 LMT-S at Currys for 79, or these two at 99 for example Drive 40LM, DriveSmart 50LM.

Many thanks

Allan

...that is LMT-D signifying digital traffic.
Essential in my book, but a bit dearer to buy new (there are second hand ones on Amazon etc from positively rated suppliers).

Yes your beanbag ought to fit, I would have thought.
My beanbag is just great with my 2599LMT-D.

Dales.

Thanks for stating the obvious, I have already done that, but Google doesn't always come up with the best price out there, Simples!

I asked for advice, not sarcasm, now if that comment had come from Sussamb or Dales I could accept that, but as you contributed nothing to a polite request why waste time stating the obvious.

Cheers

Just to close this post. I now have a Garmin Drive 51LMT-S with full Europe maps, purchased from Curry's at a very good price

And my grateful thanks to Sussamb in helping with some teething problems, one requiring a master reset to sort out, and then it did one by itself, don't ask me how, but it was switched off with a pile of operating favourites which had disappeared when switching on the following day leaving the default 3 Garmin favourites which I had deleted?

Thanks also to Dales for his advice.

Cheers

Allan

Surprised you went for the -S version.

If you use your phone with any car handsfree system then you get no traffic as, AFAIK, no phone allows 2 simultaneous connections.

Hello Kremmen

Thanks for your comments.

I don't use my phone in the car, if with someone they can answer as I leave it with them, and if on my own it stays in my pocket, similarly they can make a call or text, and I park up if on my own.

Haven't had a hand's free kit in a car for about 12 year's, as it's not a necessity for me now, but I appreciate your comments.

Cheers

My iPhone connects to the car, runs Smartlink to the SatNav and is paired to my Apple Watch. Most smartphones will allow multiple connections.

Hello Metblackrat

Thankyou, I don't possess either an IPhone or Apple Watch, having no need for either, and appreciate your feedback which other forum members might find of interest.

Something to bear in mind if my requirements change.

Cheers
