Broader Coverage compared to standard Traffic service**: Traffic information is no longer restricted to busy major roads. Thanks to Garmin Live Traffic, advanced traffic information is available at your fingertips absolutely everywhere you need it, from inner city areas to out in the countryside.
1 Minute refresh rate: Live Traffic information is refreshed every minute on your device, and believe us - one minute can really make a difference. A traffic jam moving at 15km/h can back up by 250m in that time! Wouldn’t it be a pity to miss the next exit?
10 meter accuracy: Live Traffic shows you the full extent of traffic jams, within 10 metres of spot-on accuracy. So you can make fully-informed decisions when it comes to choosing alternative routes to get you to your destination as quickly as possible.
Lifetime and no additional costs.
