For longer drives, a fatigue warning7 suggests break times and potential rest areas after hours of driving.

Bird’s Eye junction view offers a detailed view of interchanges, looking down as if from overhead. And, photoReal Junction View realistically displays junctions and interchanges along your route, including the surrounding landscape.

Our Best Traffic Solutions

HD Digital Traffic is the best traffic solution available from Garmin. HD Digital Traffic is fast and free² — no distracting advertising and no subscription fees, ever, for the useful life of your device. Receive traffic updates as often as every 30 seconds. Plus, HD Digital Traffic has a great coverage area that includes interstates, highways and secondary roads. HD Digital Traffic is voice-activated, so it responds to spoken requests. It can give details about the situation, such as how many 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 Garmin DriveLuxe — no smartphone needed.

Guidance Using Recognizable Landmarks

Garmin DriveLuxe redefines “spoken turn-by-turn directions” with Garmin Real Directions™, easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a friend, using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights (e.g., “Turn right after the red building” or “Turn left after the QT”). 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 malls, by finding a place within a larger location. Direct Access even navigates through parking lots to find the entrance nearest your destination. When navigating to the mall, Direct Access gives additional location information for specific retail stores inside. For example, “Arriving at Woodfield Mall. Anthropologie 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 (“1234 Sycamore Lane, Anytown, USA”) 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.

One-stop Device Management

Use Garmin Express™ to keep your Garmin DriveLuxe up to date. Garmin Express makes it easy to update maps and software, transfer favorites to and from devices and install free custom vehicles and voices.
