Garmin Drive 40LM includes all of the great driver awareness alerts, such as upcoming sharp curves, fatigue warning2, speed changes, railroad crossings and more.   It's simple to use and dedicated to getting you to your destination with ease.   Thanks to Foursquare, it's preloaded with millions of more new and popular places.

Helpful Driver Alerts for Your Daily Commute

Garmin Drive 40LM GPS navigator provides driver alerts to encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness.  Warnings include alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railroad crossings and animal crossings.  Additionally, Garmin Drive 40LM notifies you when driving the wrong way on a one-way street and sends warnings for nearby school zones.  Receive alerts for nearby red light and safety cameras².  For longer drives, a fatigue warning³ suggests break times and potential rest areas after hours of driving.  The Up Ahead feature lets you easily see places up ahead and milestones along your route like borders, without leaving the map view.


Guidance Using Recognisable Landmarks

Garmin Drive 40LM redefines “spoken turn-by-turn directions” with Garmin Real Directions, easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a friend, using recognisable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights (e.g., “Turn right after the red building” or “Turn left after the McDonald's”).  It’s preloaded with millions more new and popular places, thanks to Foursquare.


Find Exactly Where You Need to Go

The Direct Access feature simplifies navigating to select complex destinations, like airports and shopping centres, by finding a place within a larger location.  When navigating to the shopping centre, Direct Access gives additional location information for specific retail stores inside.  For example, “Arriving at Lakeside. Debenhams is inside, on the upper level”.


Easier to Search, Quicker to Find

Garmin Drive 40LM features a search field that makes it easy to find addresses and millions of points of interest (POIs).  Simply enter a category (like “pizza”), an entire address or a proper name (“Starbucks”), and Garmin Drive 40LM quickly returns your results.  In case of a misspelling, Garmin Drive 40LM provides multiple search results that sound similar to what you’ve entered.


Add a Camera to Your Drive

For a complete navigation solution, Garmin Drive 40LM pairs with the BC 30 wireless backup camera (sold separately, professional installation recommended).  Once connected, you can easily see vehicles, pedestrians and other obstacles right on the Garmin Drive 40LM display, as you move in reverse.

NOTICE: Some countries regulate or prohibit the use of camera devices.  It is your responsibility to know and comply with applicable laws and rights to privacy related to the use of these devices in jurisdictions where you plan to use a camera device.
