    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.

    I really want to love this app but it so often leaves me frustrated on the side of the road. All I want is to send locations and routes from Google Maps to my Garmin Zumo 595. I'd say I get failed messages 85% of the time. Then later it sometimes appears anyway. Should be easy and instant. No glitchy. Sad really as I still have to use it.

    It works, but constantly auto-launches and gives me warnings that it cannot connect to my sat nav. Garmin: I do spend all my life travelling with my sat-nav. I do not need to be warned that it cannot connect when I'm at work or at home and I know the sat-nav is switched off. Please give an option to disable auto-launch and to close the app directly from the notification.

    I got it to connect with the usual Bluetooth issues - but after mucking around fir 15 minutes I could find no useful thing it could do besides connect. That was 10 minutes too many.
