Wherever you’re going, have a smoother trip with Garmin Drive. This
dedicated GPS navigator includes innovative driver alerts to help
increase your situational awareness and preloaded travel points of
interest from TripAdvisor to help find everything you need along the
way. The future is on your Garmin. Just look ahead and drive.
Live Services for Your Drive
Outsmart traffic jams with time-saving alternate routes or by
avoiding them altogether. Then, with live information, spend less
time circling the block to look for parking. For traffic alerts,
relevant rerouting directions and up-to-date weather forecasts,
download the Smartphone
Link app, which
connects your Garmin Drive with your compatible smartphone. As you
near your destination, take the stress out of parking by viewing
pricing and availability trends for on-street public parking. The
Smartphone Link app also enables LiveTrack², which lets drivers
share their location so friends can track your whereabouts whether
you are running errands around town or taking a long road trip.
Driver Alerts: Know Your Surroundings
To encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness,
Garmin Drive provides driver alerts for sharp curves, speed changes,
railroad crossings and animal crossings. Additionally, the navigator
will warn you when driving the wrong way on a one-way street and
alert you to nearby schools and school zones. Receive notifications
for nearby red light cameras and speed cameras4,
and even get fatigue warnings5 that
suggest potential rest areas after several hours of driving.
Pair With Your Smartwatch
What’s more, your nagivator wirelessly pairs with any Garmin
Connect™-compatible smartwatch (sold separately). After they’re
paired, you can receive navigation right on your wrist after parking
your vehicle and walking toward your destination. Also, Watch Link
lets you receive helpful driver alerts on you watch, such as alerts
for upcoming school zones and more. Don’t worry about losing your
car in a crowded parking lot or on a side street several blocks away
from the venue you visited; your smartwatch provides compass
guidance from your parked vehicle to your destination and back to
your vehicle again.

signs. Just listen for Garmin Real Directions to tell you, “Turn
left after the QT,” or “Turn right after the red building.”
