USING TRAFFIC DATA WITH GARMIN GPS:
The map on the Garmin GPS will display icons that represent traffic events.
For example, the map might show a construction symbol meaning that roadwork is in progress in that area. The symbols vary by region but are highly recognizable. Each traffic event is displayed in a list in the Garmin unit. You can read the list for incidents in your path and in your area. If you are navigating a route, the GPS device gives you the option to alter your route and avoid traffic incidents.
