"We’re excited about this series of all-in-one navigators, which combines our best-in-class car and RV navigation features with a sharp, built-in dash cam, giving you confidence that you’ll have video proof of unexpected incidents," said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. "Whether you’re making the morning commute to work or a trek across the country with the family, these navigators bring greater peace of mind to your time on the road."

Thanks to the built-in, high-definition camera, these integrated devices help increase driver awareness with advanced driver assisted notices, including forward collision and lane departure warnings3.

Each camera-assisted navigator in this series is purpose-built with a feature set tailored for different types of motorists. Garmin recently introduced the dēzlCam OTR710, an all-in-one trucking navigator with built-in dash cam aimed at helping professional truck drivers protect their livelihoods. With the new Garmin DriveCam 76 and RVcam 795, everyday commuters and RV drivers can benefit from these higher-end camera safety features that have historically been limited to factory-installed technology packages from select vehicle manufacturers.

Keep an eye on the drive with the Garmin DriveCam 76, Garmin’s best-in-class navigation solution for everyday drivers:

  • Use Garmin Voice Assist to control the navigator and pair with a compatible smartphone, with Bluetooth® technology, to make and take calls

  • Drive smarter with live traffic, weather reports and fuel price information when paired with the Garmin Drive app

  • Know what’s worth a stop using Tripadvisor® traveler ratings for hotels, restaurants, and attractions

  • Reverse with confidence; Garmin DriveCam 76 is compatible with select Garmin backup cameras (sold separately) to help see behind the vehicle

Plan to make memories with the RVcam 795 navigator designed specifically for camping enthusiasts and families embarking on cross-country adventures with an RV or towable:

  • Find great road options with custom routing4 for the size and weight of the RV or trailer

  • Drive with greater awareness of potential hazards along the route with alerts for upcoming steep grades, animal crossings, sharp curves and speed changes

  • Enjoy Birdseye Satellite Imagery for high-resolution overhead views of the campground or RV park to help with a smooth arrival

  • Enhance any vacation with a preloaded database of RV Parks and Services, Tripadvisor traveler ratings, Ultimate Public Campgrounds, KOA® campgrounds and a directory of U.S. national parks

  • View loyalty reward points for select travel plazas, including Pilot Travel Centers, LLC® across the U.S. Requires use of the Garmin Drive app

  • Works seamlessly with other Garmin products, including the long-range BC50 series backup cameras to help see behind the rig; the Garmin PowerSwitchdigital switch box for convenient control of the RV’s 12-volt electronics and wireless Bluetooth-enabled headsets for high-quality audio on the road (each sold separately)

Today, Garmin also announced the new RV 795 GPS navigator, providing camping enthusiasts with the same leading-edge navigation benefits as the RVcam 795, but removes the built-in dash camera and camera-related features.

Available now, the Garmin DriveCam 76 has a suggested retail price of $449.99, while the RVcam 795 has a suggested retail price of $599.99. The RV 795 has a suggested retail price of $449.99. To learn more visit garmin.com/automotive.
