Pairing with Your Phone and Connecting to Smartphone Link

You must pair your Garmin DriveSmart™ device with your phone and connect to Smartphone Link to use some features, such as live traffic and parking information, hands-free calling, and other connected features.

NOTE: Product models ending in LMT-D or LMT-HD can receive traffic data using either the Smartphone Link app or the built-in, over-the-air digital traffic receiver.

After the devices are paired, they connect automatically when they are turned on and within range.

  1. From the app store on your phone, install the Smartphone Link app.
  2. Place the Garmin DriveSmart device and your phone within 3 m (10 ft.) of each other.
  3. On the Garmin DriveSmart device, select Settings > Wireless Networks, and select the Bluetooth check box.
  4. Select Search for Devices.
  5. On your phone, enable Bluetooth® wireless technology, and set the phone to be discoverable.

    See your phone owner's manual for more information.

  6. On the Garmin DriveSmart device, select OK.

    The Garmin DriveSmart device begins searching for nearby Bluetooth devices, and a list of Bluetooth devices appears. It may take up to a minute for your phone to appear in the list.

  7. Select your phone from the list, and select OK.
  8. On your phone, confirm the pairing request.
  9. On your phone, open the Smartphone Link app.
