Garmin International Inc. has announced the new easy-to-use Garmin Drive™ product line specifically designed to help increase driver situational awareness. The launch of this new lineup marks a significant step forward in the evolution of Portable Navigational Devices (PNDs) from Garmin with four intuitively named models: Garmin Drive™, Garmin DriveSmart™, Garmin DriveAssist™ and Garmin DriveLuxe™. The entire Garmin Drive lineup boasts a number of driver alerts to encourage safer driving and situational awareness. This includes warnings for upcoming sharp curves, railway or animal crossings, alerts for users driving the wrong way on a one-way street and more. Drivers also receive red light and speed camera alerts as well as vital timesaving traffic information with fast-approaching traffic jam notifications. For longer routes, a fatigue warning alert suggests potential break times and available rest areas or places to stop.
