Garmin continues to stay at the top of their game as the worldwide leader in satellite navigation with four models for 2016, namely the Garmin Drive™, Garmin DriveSmart™, Garmin DriveAssist™ and Garmin DriveLuxe™. Here’s a quick guide to the features of these 4 new models :
The newest in the product line, Garmin Drive™, is specifically designed to help increase driver situational awareness, boasting new driver awareness features and new driver alerts to help remove some distractions encountered by drivers and help them stay aware on the road. These new alerts include warnings for sharp upcoming curves, red light and speed camera alerts, fatigue warning alerts and even traffic information with fast-approaching traffic jam notifications. The Garmin Drive 50LMT is the entry level model in this product line.
Garmin DriveSmart™ is Garmin Drive™ and more! Garmin DriveSmart™ navigators will come with customizable smart notifications, voice-activated navigation and Bluetooth® wireless technology for hands-free calling and access to real-time services such as live traffic and weather radar through the Smartphone Link app. The Garmin DriveSmart 70LMT is the largest in size in the DriveSmart™ range, featuring an awesome 7” screen.
The Garmin DriveAssist™ features an advanced 5” GPS navigator with a built-in dash cam, on top of all the features you would find in a Garmin DriveSmart™. The integrated camera provides more advanced driver awareness alerts, such as the Forward Collision and Lane Departure Warnings, and a “Go” Alert that notifies distracted drivers when traffic ahead of their vehicle begins to move.
The very sleek and stylish Garmin DriveLuxe™ adds HD Digital traffic, the fastest traffic avoidance solution offered by Garmin, with updates as often as every 30 seconds.
