How Does Garmin Traffic
Help You?

Your sat nav with traffic not only informs you about traffic on your route, it will also:

  • Constantly adjust your ETA based on your progress and traffic incidents.
  • Provide alternative routes and tell you the time it will save.
  • Provide a map view of the traffic situation around you.
  • Give audible and visual advisories to tell you what’s up ahead.

1. FREE lifetime traffic updates may not be transferred to another person or another Garmin product. Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. A traffic receiver’s “useful life” means the period during which the receiver (a) has the required technical capabilities to utilise current traffic data service and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. Traffic content not available for all areas.

2. User’s data plan charges, if any, will apply. Contact your mobile service provider for more information about your service plan’s data and roaming rates.

Digital traffic requires access to the DAB network and is therefore subject to DAB coverage. Digital traffic is currently only available in the UK, excluding Ireland and Northern Ireland.
