Enjoy spoken turn-by-turn directions throughout North America, a 7" pinch-to-zoom screen, live traffic updates and parking info, and hands-free calling with the DriveSmart 61 Navigation System by Garmin. The system comes with numerous features to make driving safer and easier, including alerts for road hazards (or your own fatigue), easy-to-understand directions using landmarks and businesses, and directions within complex locations like airports and mall parking lots.
Sync a Bluetooth-enabled device, such as your smartphone, for hands-free calling, receiving smart notifications, text messages, and calendar reminders without taking your hands off the wheel. You can also get directions by talking instead of touching, thanks to the unit's voice-activated navigation capability. When a map or software update is available, you'll be notified, and the DriveSmart will download the update automatically using your home WiFi network.
Along with map data, the navigator is populated with TripAdvisor points of interest such as hotels, restaurants and attractions near your destination and along the way, and information from Foursquare on millions of local destinations. You can also customize the device with up to 1,000 destinations of your choosing. Active lane assist with voice prompts and junction view ensure that you are in the right lane of travel at tricky interchanges, while route shaping helps you pick the most efficient way to get where you're going. The system is compatible with Garmin smartwatches and the BC30 Wireless Backup Camera, both sold separately.
