The Incident Detection G-sensor will automatically save video footage on impact and the 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 Garmin’s free VIRB Mobile app to watch footage later on your compatible smartphone or tablet.
CAMERA-ASSISTED DRIVER ALERTS
Take advantage of innovative driver awareness features available 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.
Give yourself and your loved ones a little peace of mind by knowing that if an incident occurs, they’ll be promptly notified. Simply 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.
RECAP THE RIDE WITH TRAVELAPSE
Use the built-in DashCam to create a cool video of your next road trip. The Travelapse feature captures your long, scenic driving footage and lets you use the free VIRB Mobile app on your compatible smartphone to create a short video recap. After that, it’s easy to share on social media to relive the memories again and again.
LIVE SERVICES FOR YOUR DRIVE
Outsmart traffic jams with time-saving alternate routes or by avoiding them altogether. Then, with live information, spend less time circling the block to look for parking. For traffic alerts, relevant rerouting directions and up-to-date weather forecasts, download the Smartphone Link app, which connects your Garmin DriveAssist with your compatible smartphone. The Smartphone Link app also enables LiveTrack², which lets drivers share their location so friends and family can track your whereabouts whether you are running errands around town or taking a long road trip.
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 customisable smart notifications on your navigator’s display. That means you can see incoming calls, text messages and calendar reminders without ever having to reach for your phone.
DRIVER ALERTS: KNOW YOUR SURROUNDINGS
To encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness, Garmin DriveAssist 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 safety cameras6, and even get fatigue warnings7 that suggest potential rest areas after several hours of driving.
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, even after you’ve parked your car and are walking toward your destination as well as receive helpful driver alerts on your watch. Don’t worry about losing your car in a crowded parking lot as your smartwatch provides compass guidance from your parked vehicle to your destination and back to your vehicle again.
The Garmin DriveAssist features voice-activated navigation that responds to your commands and then navigates to where you need to go.
