Helpful Driver Alerts for Your Daily Commute

Free Lifetime Traffic Avoidance
Garmin traffic gives details about the situation, such as how many minutes of delay to expect and if there are any possible time-saving detours. It can even confirm whether or not you are on the fastest route. Lifetime traffic entitles your Garmin DriveLuxe to receive free traffic information for its useful life, with no ads and no subscription fees. Garmin traffic is delivered straight to your Garmin DriveLuxe — no smartphone needed.
Guidance Using Recognizable Landmarks
Garmin DriveLuxe 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®.
Find Exactly Where You Need to Go
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.”
Easier to Search, Quicker to Find
Garmin DriveLuxe has a search field that makes it easy to find addresses and millions of points of interest (POIs). Simply enter a category (like “pizza”), an entire address (“1234 Sycamore Lane, Anytown, USA”) or a proper name (“Starbucks”), and Garmin DriveLuxe quickly returns your results. In case of a misspelling, Garmin DriveLuxe provides multiple search results that sound similar to what you’ve entered. For example, if you search for “MacDonalds,” you will get results for both “MacDonalds” and “McDonalds.”
Add a Camera to Your Drive
For a complete navigation solution, Garmin DriveLuxe 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 DriveLuxe 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.
