About this app

The Garmin Drive™ app is a simple and convenient app solution for the latest Garmin automotive navigators and dash cams. Visit for a list of compatible devices.

For compatible navigators, the Garmin Drive app provides real-time information for traffic, parking, advanced weather, and photoLive traffic cameras, in addition to the ability to send and receive calls, texts, and notifications from your Bluetooth-enabled mobile device.

For compatible dash cams, the Garmin Drive app provides quick access to camera controls, settings, and recorded footage. Up to four dash cams can be wirelessly connected with the Dash Cam Auto Sync feature to provide comprehensive coverage around a vehicle, offering various viewpoints recorded by the multiple cameras. The Garmin Drive app can create a “picture-in-picture” video from any two perspectives at the same time, making it easy to review video and also share videos with friends, insurance agencies, or legal authorities.

Garmin Speak™ with Amazon Alexa brings what you love about Amazon Alexa to your vehicle. Just ask Alexa to hear music, news, and more. Also, enjoy Garmin turn-by-turn navigation. Stream the audio (music and other responses) from your vehicle’s stereo when you connect Garmin Speak to your stereo using Bluetooth® or AUX.

Older Bluetooth-capable Garmin navigators are compatible with the Garmin Smartphone Link app, and older Wi-Fi-enabled Garmin dash cams can access video footage through the Garmin VIRB app.

App is useless and does not work. It's impossible to connect the app to the dash cam. I tried multiple times for 30+ minutes each time and it won't connect. To be fair I was able to connect the dash cam 47 to the app only one single time but none the functions were working which is the same as not getting connected. Don't waste your time with the app.

This app used to be functional. When I still used my Garmin GPS it was very useful because it meant I didn't have to try to enter addresses on my GPS. Lately it's been updated a lot and it's changed. I have two Garmin – cams and getting any video off of them is impossible. I just spent 15 minutes getting the app to export a video from the front camera with the rear camera saved as picture in picture. After crashing several times, the video was just a black screen with garbled sound

First years would have gotten 5 stars from me. Now, a little over a year later. - 1 star. I have 3 cameras and none of them connect to the app anymore without me having to forget the camera, uninstall the app and then go through the entire setup process. EVERY time! I cannot look at live view or saved video/pictures without resetting everything up. Not something I want to deal with when a cop is asking for video of an accident!!!
