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.
Product models ending with MT can receive traffic data from an over-the-air broadcast signal using the built-in traffic receiver and the included vehicle power cable (Receiving Traffic Data Using a Traffic Receiver).
All product models can receive subscription-free traffic data using the Garmin Drive™ app (Receiving Traffic Data Using Your Smartphone).
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.
Traffic data is not available in all areas. For information about traffic coverage areas, go to garmin.com/traffic.
