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 2 minutes 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 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.
**Not available in all areas. Subscription required.

Drops bluetooth connection Useless in the present form. Nüvi 2595 paired with S4 mini, but drops the bluetooth connection in every 3 min. Uninstalled.

It links to the satnav, and syncs my contacts, but after that I just get "authentication unsuccessful" with no help and no way to put it right. Rubbish.

Meh Works ok-ish but sometimes refuses to send a location. Also hate the fact that the smart-link connect option turns up everytime I connect to bluetooth.
