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.
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.
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.
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.
When you’re not familiar with the area, it’s nice to have something to point you in the right direction. That’s why we’re bringing TripAdvisor to your Garmin Drive navigator. View ratings for travel POIs, such as hotels, restaurants and attractions, along your route or near your destination. From the world’s largest travel site directly to your car, we’re helping you find the stops that make the entire journey part of the destination. Also locate new attractions with the built-in Trip Planner tool, which adds fun to road trips by suggesting interesting stops along the way.
Redefine “spoken turn-by-turn” directions with Garmin Real Directions. Our easy-to-understand driving directions use recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights in addition to spoken street names, guiding you as if your best friend is sitting in the passenger seat. No more squinting to read distant street signs. Just listen for Garmin Real Directions to tell you, “Turn left after the QT,” or “Turn right after the red building.” Following directions has never been easier.
The Direct Access feature simplifies navigating to complex destinations, such as airports or shopping malls, by finding a place within a larger location. It even helps navigate through parking lots to find the entrance nearest your destination.
Thanks to Foursquare, your Garmin Drive navigator is loaded with millions of additional popular places like restaurants, entertainment venues, shops and other points of interest. Next time you get in the car and take a ride, you might just find your new favorite spot.
For a complete navigation solution, Garmin Drive pairs with the BC™ 30 Wireless Backup Camera (sold separately; professional installation recommended). Once connected, you can easily see vehicles, pedestrians and other obstacles right on the Garmin Drive display as you move in reverse.
Use Garmin Express™ to keep your Garmin Drive navigator up to date. Garmin Express makes it easy to update maps and software. The quality of map data can make all the difference between finding your destination and getting lost. High-quality HERE map data enables your Garmin device to provide you with the information you need, when you need it most — reducing the frustrations of driving by avoiding delays and cutting down the time you spend in your car.
