Garmin® is not responsible for the accuracy or timeliness of the traffic information.
Your device can provide information about traffic on the road ahead or on your route. You can set your device to avoid traffic when calculating routes, and to find a new route to your destination if a large traffic delay occurs on your active route (Traffic Settings). The traffic map allows you to browse the map for traffic delays in your area.
To provide traffic information, your device must be receiving traffic data.
Your device receives free traffic data through the Smartphone Link app (Receiving Traffic Data Using Smartphone Link).
All product models can receive traffic data using an over-the-air traffic receiver cable accessory (Receiving Traffic Data Using a Traffic Receiver). Go to your product page at garmin.com to find and purchase a compatible traffic receiver cable accessory.
Product models ending in LMT-D or LMTHD can receive traffic data using the built-in digital traffic receiver and the included vehicle power cable (Receiving Traffic Data Using a Traffic Receiver).
Traffic data is not available in all areas. For information about traffic coverage areas, go to www.garmin.com/traffic.
