Forward Collision Warning System
The forward collision warning system (FCWS) feature is for information only and does not replace your responsibility to observe all road and driving conditions, abide by all traffic regulations, and use safe driving judgment at all times. The FCWS relies on the camera to provide a warning of upcoming vehicles and, as a result, may have limited functionality in low visibility conditions. For more information, go to garmin.com/warnings.
The FCWS feature alerts you when the device detects that you are not maintaining a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. The device determines your vehicle speed using GPS, and it calculates an estimated safe following distance based on your speed. The FCWS activates automatically when your vehicle speed exceeds 48 km/hr (30 mph).
When the device detects that you are too close to the vehicle ahead of you, the device plays an audible alert, and a warning appears on the screen.
