Garmin Real Directions™

Find Exactly Where You Need to Go

The Direct Access feature simplifies navigating to select complex destinations, like airports and shopping malls, by finding a place within a larger location.

Anthropologie is inside, on the upper level.” Direct Access even navigates through parking lots to find the entrance nearest your destination.

Active Lane Guidance with voice prompts prepares you to drive through an exit or interchange with confidence. As you approach, an animated model uses brightly colored arrows to indicate the proper lane needed for your route; a friendly voice offers additional help.
