- Driver Alerts
You’ll be alerted to sharp curves, speed limit changes, railroad crossings, animal crossings, and school zones, and will be warned if you end up going the wrong way on a one-way road, or if you’ve been driving for too long without a break. In jurisdictions where it is permitted, DriveAssist will warn you about red-light and speed cameras.
- Hands-Free Calling
Synch a Bluetooth-enabled device, such as your smartphone, for hands-free calling and receive text messages and calendar reminders without taking your hands off the wheel. Customizable smart notifications appear on the navigation display.
- Incident Notifications
Designate your chosen contact, and they will automatically receive a text message if you’re involved in an accident. You can choose to cancel the message prompt before it sends. The text notification includes a map link to where the incident occurred.
- Live Traffic and Parking Info
Pair the navigator with your compatible mobile device using the free Smartphone Link app, and you’ll have traffic alerts, relevant re-routing suggestions, pricing for parking facilities, and availability trends for on-street public parking. The app also enables LiveTrack, which lets you share your location with family or friends.
- Real Directions
Garmin’s Real Directions feature uses recognizable landmarks, buildings, and intersections to let you know when and where to turn.
- Points of Interest
The DriveAssist provides info from TripAdvisor on hotels, restaurants, and attractions at your destination and on your journey, along with Foursquare data on millions of restaurants, entertainment venues, shops and other points of interest.
- Smartwatch & Camera Compatibility
Pair with compatible Garmin smartwatches for driver alerts on your wrist and compass guidance to find your car, and with Garmin’s BC 30 Backup Camera for dramatically improved safety (smartwatches and backup camera sold separately).
