Smartphone Link allows you to connect a compatible Garmin nüvi and an iOS device.

With Smartphone Link, your nüvi can also access Garmin Live Services for useful, real-time driving information.
Live Services for Real-Time Information
With Smartphone Link, your nüvi can access Garmin Live Services for up-to-date “live” information, which can be useful while driving. Some services are free when you connect to Smartphone Link. Premium content and enhanced features are available through subscription. All information can be viewed within the app itself, on your iPhone.
Free Live Services include:
• Weather - View forecasts and current conditions
• Last Mile - Remembers your parking spot and shows your destination, so you can find your way on foot and back again
• Address sharing - Send locations and online search results from your phone to your nüvi, and navigate there

A backward step
The recent upgrade doesn't send address destinations to my Garmin satnav. A previously useful app now rendered pointless.
