Driver Alerts: Know Your Surroundings
To encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness, Garmin Drive provides driver alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railway crossings and animal crossings. Additionally, the navigator will warn you when driving the wrong way on a one-way street and alert you to nearby schools and school zones. Receive notifications for nearby red light cameras and safety cameras4, and even get fatigue warnings5 that suggest potential rest areas after several hours of driving.
Road Trips Just Got Better with TripAdvisor

View ratings for travel POIs, such as hotels, restaurants and attractions, along your route or near your destination. From the world's largest travel site directly to your car, we're helping you find the stops that make the entire journey part of the destination. Also locate new attractions with the built-in Trip Planner tool, which adds fun to road trips by suggesting interesting stops along the way.
