The Garmin Drive™ app is a simple and convenient app solution for the latest Garmin automotive navigators and dash cams. Visit for a list of compatible devices.

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.

Garmin Speak™ and Garmin DriveSmart™ 65 with Amazon Alexa are two Garmin products that bring what you love about Amazon Alexa to your vehicle. Just ask Alexa to hear music, news, and more. 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.

Great so far

The app rating was the deciding factor on purchasing a Garmin 66w & mini dash cams and have to say I’m pleased with my decision. Easy set up, use and results. Whilst another leading brand gained higher praise for the picture quality & functions, they’re bigger, lose resolution on adding other cams and have a great deal of negative reviews for reliability. Great app, Better Dash Cams.

What a joy

Using my Garmin to navigate me, the Alexa app built in plays any tune in the world, allows me to add to my lists and shop, tells me facts, the wireless reversing Garmin camera works a treat it really is just a fabulous set up Garmin have done a fantastic job and all for under £400 all in where SUZUKI wanted £1500 to install an inferior fitted system .... you won’t regret buying this

Excellent addition to new Garmin Drive smart 55

This complements the gps.
It works well in the background and only comes in when connected to the unit
It delves traffic and weather well
Just remember to turn it on each time
