Clear and bright from edge to edge
Garmin DriveSmart 61 features Garmin's easiest-to-see display yet. View your directions at a glance on a bright, clear screen. Includes a 6.95-inch glass display that goes from edge to edge on the device. The capacitive touch surface lets you pinch to zoom if you need a closer view.
Putting the smart in smart connectivity
When you sync your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone to Garmin DriveSmart, you get great features that let you stay connected without taking your hands off the wheel. Make hands-free phone calls and receive customizable smart notifications on your navigator's display. That means you can see incoming calls, text messages and calendar reminders without ever having to reach for your phone.
Need directions? Just say the word. Garmin DriveSmart features voice-activated navigation that responds to your commands and then navigates to where you need to go.
Wi-Fi keeps you up to date
Garmin makes it easy to keep your maps and software up to date now that the Garmin DriveSmart navigator features built-in Wi-Fi. When a new update is available and you're on your wireless home network, you'll automatically receive an onscreen notification. That's your cue to plug your device into any outlet and let it update over Wi-Fi while it charges. Then you'll be ready to hit the road again.
Driver alerts: know your surroundings
To encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness, Garmin DriveSmart provides driver alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railroad 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 speed cameras, and even get fatigue warnings that suggest potential rest areas after several hours of driving.
