  • Bluetooth issue remains

    By Rusty shackleford02
    Only works with my 770 dezl if I “forget the device” and re-pair. I have to do that every time.
  • Garmin still failing

    By Not much to it
    Another update and still no fix. Not so smart link still doesn’t work. Year after year they sell a product that claims to work but doesn’t. All the ever have to say is sorry. Time to go tomtom.
  • Coordinates instead of addresses?!?

    By mwoolfolk
    I used to think this was a 4-5 star app. But, a few updates ago, it stopped displaying addresses and replaced them with coordinates when searching for locations. BRING BACK ADDRESSES!!!!! 😠
  • Connection issues

    By Kboczek
    Still cannot get app to connect (iPhone se ios 11.2.5) to dezl 760. Bluetooth paired after restore. Works fine for Android. But ios version is cursed. Also too bad subscription wasn't linked to garmin dashboard... Have to repurchase everything. Luckily just the weather.
  • No good

    By Rayvonp

  • My link doesn’t connect to my gps???

    By SirTemp
    Having issues with my link app not connecting with my gps. Phone is connected just fine but link is not . Please help
  • Please update

    By Marreropid
    Since iOS 11.2.5 came out can connect smart link with gps for more than two minutes without getting disconnected. It was working great before the update. Please update
  • Limited Utility

    By Jhdbutdxee
    The most useful function for me would be the ability to send an address or POI from my phone to the unit (2599 in my case). Unfortunately if you’re searching anything over 50 miles it won’t be found; as only “nearby places” are available; a terrible flaw. We have the technology for GS. Fix it, please.
  • Extremely hard for use in 2018.

    By Azer.HZ
    Looks like this people/garmin who offering this app to use, they from other dimension or from parallel world. They don’t have google map app or iphone map, they can’t see how easy to send addresses from browsers to any gps, almost all other applications who has any street or building address they support one click to get address in gps. But not in Garmins Smart link app. It would be smart app honestly 15 years ago. In 2018 it is stupid link app. It is completely useless. I have DriveSmart 61. it is very good gps. But this app really sad.
