Built-in Dash Cam
For an eyewitness account when you need it most, Garmin DriveAssist comes with
a compact, built-in dash camera that continuously records your drive, with optional
in-vehicle audio recording. The Incident Detection G-sensor will automatically
save video footage on impact. GPS records exactly when and where the events
occurred. A replaceable microSD™ card is included, and you can easily play back
video footage right on the device. Or use our free VIRB® app to watch footage
later on your compatible smartphone or tablet.
Live Services for Your Drive
Outsmart traffic jams with time-saving alternate routes or by avoiding them
altogether. For traffic alerts, relevant rerouting directions and up-to-date
weather forecasts, download the Smartphone Link app, which connects your Garmin
DriveAssist navigator with your compatible smartphone. 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.
Camera-assisted Driver Alerts
Take advantage of innovative driver awareness features available only on Garmin
DriveAssist. When your car is stopped in traffic, the “Go” Alert notifies you
when traffic in front of you has started to move. The Forward Collision Warning5
alerts if you’re driving too closely to the vehicle ahead, and if you drift off
the road or into oncoming traffic, receive Lane Departure Warning5
alerts. Easily navigate hard to read house numbers, thanks to the Garmin Real
Vision™ feature. When you approach address destinations, your navigation
display will switch to a camera view, showing a bright arrow that points to where
you need to go.
Putting the Smart in Smart Connectivity
When you sync your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone to Garmin DriveAssist, you get
great features that let you stay connected without taking your hands off the
wheel. Make hands-free phone calls and receive customizable smart notifications6
on your navigator’s display. That means you can see incoming calls, text
messages and calendar reminders without even having to reach for your phone.
Need directions? Just say the word. Garmin DriveAssist features voice-activated
navigation that responds to your commands and then navigates to where you need
Wi-Fi® Keeps You up to Date
We make it easy to keep your maps and software up to date now that the Garmin
DriveAssist navigator features built-in Wi-Fi. When a new update is available
and you’re on your wireless home network, you’ll automatically receive an
onscreen notification. That’s your cue to plug your device into any outlet and
let it update over Wi-Fi while it charges. Then you’ll be ready to hit the road
Driver Alerts: Know Your Surroundings
To encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness, Garmin
DriveAssist provides driver alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railway
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 safety cameras7, and
even get fatigue warnings that suggest potential rest areas after several hours
More Navigation from Your Garmin Smartwatch
When you pair this navigator with your compatible Garmin smartwatch (sold
separately), you can receive navigation right on your wrist. Also get helpful
driver alerts on your watch.
Give yourself and your loved ones a little peace of mind by knowing that if an
incident occurs, they’ll be promptly notified. Just designate your chosen
contact, and they will automatically receive a text message4 unless you cancel
the message prompt before it sends. The text notification includes a map link
to where the incident occurred.
