Helpful Driver Alerts for Your Daily Commute
Garmin DriveLuxe GPS sat nav provides driver alerts to encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness. Warnings include alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railway crossings, animal crossings and more. Additionally, Garmin DriveLuxe notifies you when driving the wrong way on a one-way street and sends warnings for nearby school zones. Receive alerts for nearby red light and speed cameras5, and be prepared for sudden halts in traffic with upcoming traffic jam6 alerts. For longer drives, a fatigue warning7 suggests break times and potential rest areas after hours of driving. The Up Ahead feature lets you easily see places up ahead and milestones along your route like borders, without leaving the map view.

Navigate Complex Interchanges with Ease
Active Lane Guidance with voice prompts prepares you to drive through an exit or junction with confidence. As you approach, an animated model uses brightly coloured arrows to indicate the proper lane needed for your route; a friendly voice offers additional help. Bird’s Eye junction view offers a detailed view of junctions, looking down as if from overhead. And, photoReal Junction View realistically displays junctions along your route, including the surrounding landscape.
Garmins Best Traffic Solutions
Garmin Digital Traffic via DAB is Garmins best plug & play traffic solution. Digital Traffic is fast and free2 —for the useful life of your device. Receive traffic updates as often as every 60 seconds. Plus, Digital Traffic has a great coverage area that includes motorways, A roads and more minor roads - everywhere you need it*. Digital Traffic is voice-activated, so it responds to spoken requests. It can give details about the situation, such as how man minutes of delay to expect and if there are any possible detours. Even learn whether or not you are on the fastest route. Traffic information is delivered straight to your device, out-of-the box.
Guidance Using Recognisable Landmarks
Garmin DriveLuxe redefines “spoken turn-by-turn directions” with Garmin Real Directions™, easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a friend, using recognisable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights (e.g., “Turn right after the red building” or “Turn left after the McDonalds”). 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 centres, by finding a place within a larger location. When navigating to the shopping centre, Direct Access gives additional location information for specific retail stores inside. For example, “Arriving at Lakeside. Debenhams 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 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.
