Driver Alerts: Know Your Surroundings
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 cameras², and even get fatigue warnings³ that suggest potential rest areas after several hours of driving.
Pair with Your Smartwatch
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.
