Simplify your drive

For compatible navigators, the Garmin Drive app provides real-time information for traffic, parking, advanced weather, and photoLive traffic cameras, in addition to smart notifications from your Bluetooth-enabled mobile device.
For compatible dash cams, the Garmin Drive app provides quick access to camera controls, settings, and recorded footage. Up to four dash cams can be wirelessly connected with the Dash Cam Auto Sync feature to provide comprehensive coverage around a vehicle, offering various viewpoints recorded by the multiple cameras. The Garmin Drive app can create a “picture-in-picture” video from any two perspectives at the same time, making it easy to review video and also share videos with friends, insurance agencies, or legal authorities.

Also, enjoy Garmin turn-by-turn navigation. Stream the audio (music and other responses) from your vehicle’s stereo when you connect Garmin Speak to your stereo using Bluetooth® or AUX.
Older Bluetooth-capable Garmin navigators are compatible with the Garmin Smartphone Link app, and older Wi-Fi-enabled Garmin dash cams can access video footage through the Garmin VIRB app.
The Garmin Drive™ app is continually working to improve your experience and help simplify your drive. This version includes bug fixes to improve device functionality, as well as features to support new Garmin devices.

Dash cam proves driver is not disrespectful
With the simplicity of the Garmin drive app I was able to use the video footage on my Garmin dash cam to prove to a receiver that I was not belligerent and disrespectful to the gate guard when I arrived at their facility... when I talked with the manager at the facility he told me that the guard had accused me of being vulgar and belligerent when I was told that I was not going to be loaded. I sat in my truck for a few minutes after this conversation and realized that my dash cam was on I checked to see if it had recorded the audio between me and the guard and it did surprisingly it was a very clear audio with the cam mounted to my windshield and an electronic speaker approximately 3 feet outside the door of the truck all the conversation was clearly recorded. Playing the video with audio back to the manager gave him a total respect for the integrity of a person who was not just trying to defend himself but telling him the truth... The app is very easy to use self-explanatory and is worth it’s weight in gold . (that is if it has any weight)
It’s a little tricky to get started sometimes but once it’s started it usually works great. It’s great at showing what’s going on in front of me while I’m driving especially in today’s society where they want to back up and hit you then say that I rammed them or something. All I gotta do is wait until the cops get there and tell them I got proof on camera that they backed up into me trying to scam me and/or my insurance company. One thing I’m really happy about is that it doesn’t record what speed I’m doing because depending on what stretch of road I’m on and how heavy my foot I would be in some real trouble. Let’s just say that I have the potential to go more than 2.5 times the interstate speed and go from there. No I won’t admit to how far I’ve pushed it either lol.
Love to drive again
Ok, just a little sarcastic, but yeah... I drive professionally, and this thing makes it so I can concentrate on the road while it handles getting me where I need to go, and usually haven’t been before. A couple things I would like to have it do, though, to help professional drivers.
1. Allow for ‘learned’ routes. Multiple drives to a certain address that don’t follow the suggested or alternate route due to destination issues.
2. Allow map editing to indicate areas that are off limits, such as an area that doesn’t allow a company vehicle/bus in their townships. Yes, Windcrest, Texas, I’m talking about you.
3. Have a “Pro” option where the directions always put the destination address on the right at arrival. Also would like to see tighter address control. No one knows how to standardize house addresses, and finding them in the dark is a pain if the directions tell you that you’ve arrived two blocks from the actual house.
4. HUD MODE. Projection technology exists, there should be a way to project the display onto the windshield.
I’ll leave my wish list at that, but even without those items, you’re a fool if you need something like this and don’t get this one.
