Helpful Driver Alerts for Your Daily Commute
Garmin Drive 40 navigator provides driver alerts to encourage safer driving and
increase situational awareness. Warnings include alerts for sharp curves, speed
changes, railroad crossings and animal crossings. Additionally, Garmin Drive 40
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
cameras². For longer drives, a fatigue warning³ 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.
Guidance Using Recognisable Landmarks
Garmin Drive 40 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 Drive 40 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 Drive 40 quickly
returns your results. In case of a misspelling, Garmin Drive 40 provides
multiple search results that sound similar to what you’ve entered.
Add a Camera to Your Drive
For a complete navigation solution, Garmin Drive 40 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 Drive 40 display, as you move in reverse.
