NOTICE! Garmin® is not responsible for the accuracy or timeliness of the traffic information.

Traffic information may not be available in all areas or countries. For information about traffic receivers and coverage areas, go to www.garmin.com/traffic.

A traffic receiver is included in some packages, built into either the vehicle power cable or the device, and is an optional accessory for all models.

  • Traffic alerts appear on the map when there are traffic incidents along your route or in your area.

  • You can receive traffic information through a traffic receiver or as a subscription service through Smartphone Link (Garmin® Live Services).

  • The device must be connected to Smartphone Link with an active traffic subscription to receive traffic information through Smartphone Link.

  • The device must be connected to vehicle power to receive traffic information through a traffic receiver.

  • The powered traffic receiver and the device may need to be in data range of a station transmitting traffic data to receive traffic information.

  • You do not need to activate the subscription included with your device or traffic receiver.

  • If your device includes an external traffic antenna, you should always leave the external antenna plugged in for the best traffic reception.
