Smartphone Link allows you to connect a compatible Garmin nüvi® and your iPhone®. Once linked, the nüvi uses your existing mobile data plan* to share information with your iPhone, including contacts, search results, favorite locations, your driving destination, and even your parking spot. With Smartphone Link, your nüvi can also access Garmin Live Services** for useful, real-time driving information.

Live Services for Real-Time Information

With Smartphone Link, your nüvi can access Garmin Live Services for up-to-date “live” information that can be useful while driving. Some services are free when you connect to Smartphone Link. Premium content and enhanced features are available through a one-time purchase. All information can be viewed within the app itself, on your iPhone.

Free Live Services include:

• Address sharing - Send locations and online search results from your phone to your nüvi, and navigate there

• Weather - View forecasts and current conditions

• Dynamic Parking - Find parking close to your destination, including the number of spots available and current cost (free for North America)

• Last Mile - Remembers your parking spot and shows your destination, so you can find your way on foot and back again
