    What Are Garmin Live Services?
    Garmin Live Services provide the most up-to-date “live” information to your Garmin navigator using your existing mobile data plan. There’s no need for an additional data connection. Some services are included free when you connect to Smartphone Link. Others are available through subscriptions that offer premium content and enhanced features.

    Examples of Garmin Live Services:
    •Local weather information:
    Current localized weather, temperature and forecasts.
    • Live Traffic*:
    Garmin Live Traffic provides the best-in-class real-time information to help you navigate in and around congestion. Live Traffic is updated every minute and receives more than 1,000 messages every update cycle.
    • photoLive traffic cameras*:
    Provides drivers the ability to look up real-time photos from traffic cameras to get a glance at traffic and weather conditions.
    • Advanced Weather*:
    In addition to what the free weather service provides, Advanced Weather also allows users to receive severe weather alerts and view animated radar images on the nüvi. Colors distinguish types of precipitation, such as rain, snow and ice, to help you avoid bad driving conditions.
    • Real-time safety cameras**:
    Alerts you to fixed and mobile safety camera data to help you arrive safely at your destination.
    • Dynamic off-street parking:
    Helps you locate parking areas close to your destination. It also will provide you with the number of spots available and the current cost of the parking spot.

    *Contact your mobile service provider for more information about your service plan's data and roaming rates.
    **Not available in all areas. Subscription required.

    Android based smartphones must be running at least Android OS 4.4, with Smartphone Link version 2.5

    It's ok notification etc work. Traffic update work but why does this app has to run when I switch on Bluetooth it should only be running in background when connected to Garmin navigator not running whenever Bluetooth is on and draining battery.
