Garmin DriveSmart GPS navigator provides driver alerts to encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness. Warnings include alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railroad crossings, animal crossings and more.

For longer drives, a fatigue warning7 suggests break times and potential rest areas after hours of driving. The Up Ahead feature lets you easily see places up ahead and milestones along your route, without leaving the map view.

For real-time information such as weather and traffic conditions, download Smartphone Link8 mobile app, which connects your Garmin DriveSmart GPS navigator with your compatible smartphone.
Active Lane Guidance with voice prompts prepares you to drive through an exit or interchange with confidence. As you approach, an animated model uses brightly colored arrows to indicate the proper lane needed for your route. Bird’s Eye junction view offers a detailed view of interchanges, looking down as if from overhead. And, photoReal Junction View realistically displays junctions and interchanges along your route, including the surrounding landscape.
Garmin DriveSmart redefines “spoken turn-by-turn directions” with Garmin Real Directions™, easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a friend, using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights (e.g., “Turn right after the red building” or “Turn left after the QT”). It’s preloaded with millions more new and popular places, thanks to Foursquare®.
The Direct Access feature simplifies navigating to select complex destinations, like airports and shopping malls, by finding a place within a larger location. Direct Access even navigates through parking lots to find the entrance nearest your destination. When navigating to the mall, Direct Access gives additional location information for specific retail stores inside. For example, “Arriving at Woodfield Mall. Anthropologie is inside, on the upper level.”
Garmin DriveSmart has a search field that makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs. Simply enter a category (like “pizza”), an entire address (“1234 Sycamore Lane, Anytown, USA”) or a proper name (“Starbucks”), and Garmin DriveSmart quickly returns your results. In case of a misspelling, Garmin DriveSmart provides multiple search results that sound similar to what you’ve entered.
For a complete navigation solution, Garmin DriveSmart 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 DriveSmart display, as you move in reverse. When traveling with a baby or toddler, add Garmin babyCam™ to your drive. babyCam is an in-vehicle video baby monitor that conveniently provides an “on demand” view of your backseat passenger, right on your navigation display.
