      Hello, thank you for your review.

      Live traffic alerts on the DriveSmart 51 require a live traffic source. In keeping with changes in modern technology, Garmin equips new traffic-enabled models with the ability to connect wirelessly to most smartphones, and provides the Smartphone Link application (with included Live Traffic) at no additional cost.

      Vehicle power cables with built-in traffic receivers are available for purchase as optional accessories for your device, should you prefer to use this method over the default traffic solution. A GTM 36 cable, which offers standard Garmin traffic, can be found with part number 010-01009-02. A GTM 60, which provides HD Digital Traffic, can be found with part number 010-01031-00.

      An explanation of the differences between the two services can be found in the following Support Center FAQ:

                The amount of cellular data used by Smartphone Link traffic services is generally minimal, but it does vary depending on a variety of factors such as: Time used and amount of reported traffic information. 2MB of data per hour of active use with an automotive device is a reasonable estimate for data usage, in most situations.

                If you feel your usage is much more that this, Garmin Customer Care would be happy to offer additional assistance. You can find our contact information listed here:
