detours. It can even confirm whether or not you are on the fastest
route. Lifetime traffic² entitles your nüvi 2689LMT to receive free

Garmin Real Directions™
Drive with confidence, even when you’re out of cell phone range. nüvi
2689LMT is dedicated automotive navigation that does not rely on
cellular signals and is unaffected by cellular dead zones.
nüvi 2689LMT redefines “spoken turn-by-turn directions” with Garmin
Real Directions, easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a
friend, using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. No
more stress from trying to read street names. Instead, hear clearly
spoken guidance, like “Turn left after the gas station.”
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. When navigating to the mall,
Direct Access gives additional location information for specific retail
stores inside. For example, "Arriving at Woodfield Mall. Anthropologie
is inside, on the upper level." Direct Access even navigates through
parking lots to find the entrance nearest your destination.
Easily Navigate Complex Interchanges
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. Bird’s Eye
junction view offers a detailed view of interchanges, looking down as if
from overhead. photoReal Junction View realistically displays junctions
and interchanges along your route, including the surrounding landscape.
Brightly colored arrows indicate the proper lane to drive. nüvi 2689LMT
also depicts real road signs as they appear along your route.
Sync a Bluetooth-enabled device, such as your smartphone, to nüvi
2689LMT for hands-free calling through its integrated microphone and
speaker. Stow your phone in your pocket, purse or console and still make

your phone’s existing data plan³ to share information – such as where
you parked, POIs and your destination. With the Smartphone Link app, you
can conveniently send locations and addresses from your phone straight
to your nüvi. Smartphone Link also gives you access to Garmin Live
