Our Best Traffic Solutions

improved Traffic coverage. There’s now no excuse to get caught up in congestion
– whether it’s road works, an accident, rush hour traffic or serious hazards
like wrong way drivers. With a 1 minute refresh rate, you’ll know where and how
long delays are, and be offered an alternative route if available – so you’ll
always feel relaxed and in control. Just pair your compatible Garmin navigator
and your phone via Bluetooth8. (Data subscription might be
required). Beside Garmin LIVE Traffic, get additionally free lifetime Traffic
avoidance out-of the-box via RDS-TMC. It works over the traditional analogue FM
radio to inform you of delays and alternative routes.

Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT redefines “spoken turn-by-turn directions” with Garmin

right after the red building” or “Turn left after the McDonalds”). It’s
preloaded with millions more new and popular places, thanks to Foursquare®.
Easier to Search, Quicker to Find
Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT has a search field that makes it easy to find addresses

your results. In case of a misspelling, Garmin DriveSmart 50LMT provides
multiple search results that sound similar to what you’ve entered.
