Live Services for Your Drive

Outsmart traffic jams with time-saving alternate routes or by avoiding them altogether. Then, with live information, spend less time circling the block to look for parking. For traffic alerts, relevant rerouting directions and up-to-date weather forecasts, download the Smartphone Link app, which connects your Garmin DriveSmart with your compatible smartphone. As you near your destination, take the stress out of parking by viewing pricing and availability trends for on-street public parking. The Smartphone Link app also enables LiveTrack, which lets drivers share their location so friends can track your whereabouts whether you are running errands around town or taking a long road trip.

Please Note:

To utilise the live traffic updates on this GPS, you require a compatible Smartphone with Bluetooth and data connection. Data charges may apply from your service provider. If you do not wish to use your mobile phone or data for live traffic, you can purchase the optional GTM36 traffic receiver cable.

Putting the Smart in Smart Connectivity

When you sync your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone to Garmin DriveSmart, you get great features that let you stay connected without taking your hands off the wheel. Make hands-free phone calls and receive customizable smart notifications on your navigator's display. That means you can see incoming calls, text messages and calendar reminders without ever having to reach for your phone.


Voice-activated Navigation

Need directions? Just say the word. Garmin DriveSmart features voice-activated navigation that responds to your commands and then navigates to where you need to go.

Wi-Fi Keeps You up to Date

We make it easy to keep your maps and software up to date now that the Garmin DriveSmart navigator features built-in Wi-Fi. When a new update is available and you're on your wireless home network, you'll automatically receive an onscreen notification. That's your cue to plug your device into any outlet and let it update over Wi-Fi while it charges. Then you'll be ready to hit the road again.

Driver Alerts: Know Your Surroundings

To encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness, Garmin DriveSmart provides driver alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railroad crossings and animal crossings. Additionally, the navigator will warn you when driving the wrong way on a one-way street and alert you to nearby schools and school zones. Receive notifications for nearby red light cameras and speed cameras6, and even get fatigue warnings7 that suggest potential rest areas after several hours of driving.

More Navigation from Your Garmin Smartwatch

When you pair this navigator with your compatible Garmin smartwatch (sold separately), you can receive navigation right on your wrist, even after you've parked your car and are walking toward your destination. Also get helpful driver alerts on your watch. Don't worry about losing your car in a crowded parking lot; your smartwatch provides compass guidance from your parked vehicle to your destination and back to your vehicle again.

Road Trips Just Got Better with TripAdvisor®

When you're not familiar with the area, it’s nice to have something to point you in the right direction. That's why we're bringing TripAdvisor to your Garmin DriveSmart navigator. View ratings for travel points of interest, such as hotels, restaurants and attractions, along your route or near your destination. From the world’s largest travel site directly to your car, we’re helping you find the stops that make the entire journey part of the destination. Also locate new attractions with the built-in Trip Planner tool, which adds fun to road trips by suggesting interesting stops along the way.


Friendly Guidance from Garmin Real Directions™

Redefine "spoken turn-by-turn" directions with Garmin Real Directions. Our easy-to-understand driving directions use recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights in addition to spoken street names, guiding you as if your best friend is sitting in the passenger seat. No more squinting to read distant street signs. Just listen for Garmin Real Directions to tell you, "Turn left after the QT," or "Turn right after the red building." Following directions has never been easier.


Works with Garmin Backup Camera

For a complete navigation solution, Garmin DriveSmart 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 DriveSmart display as you move in reverse.

High-quality Maps

The quality of map data can make all the difference between finding your destination and getting lost. High-quality HERE map data enables your Garmin device to provide you with the information you need, when you need it most — reducing the frustrations of driving by avoiding delays and cutting down the time you spend in your car.

Gave up TomTom for this brilliant device

I gave up my TomTom Golive 6020 in frustration at poor performance. I switched back to Garmon to see if it was as good as the old one I used in UK. It's better. Big, thin, bright screen that dims at the correct time rather than long after with the TomTom. Interfaces well with my Android. Route planning is a cinch. Phone connection is good.

Pros: Does everything I need. Screen has all of the necessary information.
Cons: The restaurants showing up are a jolly nuisance and difficult to get rid of without substituting something else

More technically advanced interconnectivity compare with my older model Zumo550.

I bought this to replace an Aldi gps as Garmin is a quality international brand. The operating system is different in many respects to my Zumo550 which I use on my motorbike. However after familiarisation which the operating system, I found it interactive and easy to use. I will be using it for a tour around New Zealand.

Pros: Ability to connect over wi fi and back up camera support
Cons: Limited battery life when not connected to charger or 12v power source.

Excellent device, does all thats needed

Great device, easy and intuitive to use. The voice command works well, even in a convertible with the roof down. Fast to acquire Satellites and operation generally. Solid mount and spare mount for second car was reasonably priced.

Pros: Voice command, smart phone link, speed of calculation and route re calculation when needed
Cons: Nil to date

Another great GPS from Garmin

I have always purchased my GPS's, fish finders and maps from Johnny Appleseed and have always been impressed by their quick and efficient shipping. On their recommendation I purchased the DriveSmart 61 and I am very happy with its performance, clear screen, etc. Another great product from Garmin.

Pros: Refined voice directions. Much easier to get into correct lane prior to making turns. Lots of accessories built in such as accommodation, fuel outlets etc.
Cons: Not really a con but was surprised by the screen size. It's not quite as easy to fit to windscreen or on dash as the smaller version.

Quality Garmin GPS

Great screen size a real step up from a 5", resolution even with sun shining directly on the screen is excellent, night mode really good. Easy to setup and par with both mobile phone and Wi-Fi modem. Plenty of information accessed for the tabs and running in the background which leaves the viewing screen uncluttered until required. Manufactured with a quality looking design that looks really good wherever it's placed. What a big upgrade from the previously owned brand, couldn't be happier.
