In-car Sat Nav with Smart Notifications
The Garmin DriveSmart sat nav range is designed to integrate smart notifications via the free smartphone app into your driving and navigation experience. This means that key information, calls, texts and calendar alerts are displayed on your sat nav screen so you don’t need to look at your phone. A new generation of Driver Awareness Alerts help you stay aware of potential safety and hazard conditions on the road around you.
The DriveSmart 70 includes a 7" glass touchscreen with pinch-to-zoom, and maps of the UK & Ireland plus Europe are included with free updates for the life of the sat nav.
Garmin DriveSmart offers you the option of convenient voice-activated navigation. Control Garmin DriveSmart with your voice, while your hands remain safely on the wheel.
Your Garmin will provide helpful driver alerts along your journey to improve safety and situational awareness. It will warn you of sharp curves, speed changes, rail crossings and animal crossings. If you drive the wrong way on a one-way street you’ll be alerted.
School Zones are highlighted and you’ll be warned when you enter one and what the speed limit is.
If you’re on a long journey your Garmin Drive will provide fatigue warnings and guide you to the nearest rest area.
Up Ahead is a feature that alerts you to landmarks and milestones so you don’t need to keep looking at the map or screen.
