Welcome to smarter driving.


Need directions? Just say the word. Garmin DriveSmart responds to your spoken requests and then navigates to wherever you need to go1.


Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity makes it easy to keep your maps and software up to date without using a computer. On-screen cues show when new updates are available.


Avoid delays, and find timesaving detours with live traffic1 enabled with the Garmin Drive™ app. Also, view weather forecasts, current conditions, animated radar and storm alerts.


Pair this smart navigator with your phone, and download the Garmin Drive app to access real-time features1 such as live parking3 and photoLive traffic cameras (where available).


Built-in BLUETOOTH® wireless technology lets you sync your compatible smartphone with Garmin DriveSmart to make calls without taking your hands off the wheel2.


When paired with the Garmin Drive app, you’ll be able to see text messages and other notifications1 from your phone displayed on the navigator's screen.
