Live Services, Traffic, and Smartphone Features
Do not read or interact with notifications while driving, because doing so can cause distraction that could lead to an accident resulting in serious personal injury or death.
The Garmin Drive™ app allows your device to receive smart notifications and live information, such as live traffic data and weather information.
