Garmin Live Services
Before you can use Garmin® Live Services, your device must be connected to a supported phone running Smartphone Link (Connecting to Smartphone Link).
Connecting to Smartphone Link provides access to Garmin Live Services. Garmin Live Services provides free and subscription-based plans to view live data on your device, such as traffic conditions and weather.
Some services, like weather, are available as separate apps on your device. Other services, like traffic, enhance the existing navigation features on your device. Features that require access to Garmin Live Services display the Smartphone Link symbol and appear only when the device is connected to Smartphone Link.
