You can also receive important updates, notifications, and offers by registering your device through Garmin Express.

The system works via satellite and can be set to show icons for gas stations, hospitals, or direct you to points of interest (POI) like National Parks or tourist attractions.

If so, you’ll be drawn to phone apps or in-car infotainment systems.
