Description

Smartphone Link works with select Bluetooth® enabled Garmin navigation devices, including most products from the following product categories: • Garmin Drive™, Garmin DriveSmart™, Garmin DriveAssist™, Garmin DriveLuxe™ automotive navigators • Garmin RV and Camper navigators • zūmo motorcycle navigators • dēzl truck navigators • some nüvi automotive navigators (3597/3598/2x17/2x18/2x97/2x98/2x67/2x68/2577) Check garmin.com/spl for a detailed list of compatible Garmin devices. Some models require a software update, available at garmin.com/express Smartphone Link allows you to connect a compatible Garmin navigator and your iPhone®. Once linked, the compatible Garmin navigator uses your existing mobile data plan[1] to share information with your iPhone, including contacts, search results, favorite locations, your driving destination, and even your parking spot. With Smartphone Link, your compatible Garmin navigator can also access Garmin Live Services[2] for useful, real-time driving information. What Are Garmin Live Services? Garmin Live Services provide the most up-to-date “live” information to your Garmin navigator using your existing mobile data plan. There’s no need for an additional data connection. Some services are included when you connect to Smartphone Link. Other services within the app are available through optional paid subscriptions offering premium content and enhanced features. To receive data relevant to your location, Garmin Live Services require your current GPS location be shared with Garmin and Garmin partners. Included Live Services: • Address sharing - Send locations and online search results from your phone to your compatible Garmin navigator, and navigate there • Garmin Live Traffic Avoid delays and find detours with the best-in-class real-time information. Garmin Live Traffic is updated every minute and receives more than 1,000 messages every update cycle • Live Parking[3] Save time, and take the stress out of parking. View helpful parking information, including pricing and availability trends for on-street public parking, as you approach your destination. • Weather - View forecasts and current conditions • Last Mile - Remembers your parking spot and shows your destination, so you can find your way on foot and back again Premium Live Services, available for a one-time[4] purchase within the app, include: • photoLive traffic cameras[2] Look up live photos from over 10,000 traffic cameras to see traffic and weather conditions • Advanced Weather[2] View detailed forecasts, current conditions, and animated radar images, plus receive severe weather alerts • Dynamic Off-Street Parking[2] Find parking close to your destination, including the number of spots available and current cost [1] Contact your mobile service provider for more information about your service plan’s data and roaming rates. [2] Restrictions apply. Not available in all areas. Subscriptions required. [3] Parking data is available for most city centers. For coverage details, visit Parkopedia.com.

    Bluetooth does not work well! When I try the trouble shoot tab it kicks me out of the app. Poor app from a good company.
  • Needs an update for iOS 12

    Up until iOS 12 dropped it worked great. But since I can only use half of blue tooth features as the app will not stay connected Update since the release of the new firmware on the gps it is working great

    I got this app to get traffic on my Garmin Navigator 6 gps. It does show traffic, but is completely wrong. Maybe Garmin should pay Google for their traffic...please? By wrong I mean it shows there is a traffic back up where there is no traffic. Very unreliable information. Weather works too, but not very accurate either. This app just doesn’t fulfill what I need it to do so I deleted it. Garmin please work on the traffic and weather cause other than that I’m not sure why anyone would use this smart link app.

    As a passenger I’d love to e able to search a location that is NOT nearby and send it. There does not seem to be an easy way to do this.

    The only addresses you can send the the nav from the app are: nearby searches, nearby Foursquare searches, and saved address from your contacts. Need to search a hotel 3 cities away and send address to nav? Can’t do it. Friends your meeting two hours away send you the address of where to meet them. Just copy and paste into the app you say and send it to my nav....you would be WRONG. There is no way to do that. Instead Garmin expects me to stand/sit at my MC maybe in the rain and search or manually enter address directly into my Nav VI unit...all without even a full keyboard requiring many more keystrokes. There is more functionality in all of the free NAV apps then in the $1k unit I purchased with my MC. Don’t be an idiot...Don’t be me and by the stand-alone Nav VI with your MC. Garmin is way behind even free apps like WAZE.
  • Much improved

    Good job Garmin. This app has improved over time. Much more stable and now a good planning tool when paired with the Drive Smart 61 device. I have a request please replace Garmin Drive with this app. Garmin Drive is totally useless.
