Garmin announces trucking navigator with built-in dash cam

Published: Olathe, Kansas, United States

Garmin International, announced d?zlCam, its first all-in-one trucking navigator with a built-in dash cam that serves as an onboard eyewitness. Truckers can rely on firsthand video footage that continually records the drive and automatically saves video footage on impact. With a focus on features that matter most to truckers, the d?zlCam provides custom truck routing for the size and weight of a driver’s truck as well as route warnings for bridge heights, weight limits, sharp curves, steep grades and more.

This truck navigator features a 6-inch pinch-to-zoom display, a built-in dash cam with an adjustable swivel lens, and a magnetic mount to quickly secure or remove the d?zlCam from a driver’s truck. The built-in dash cam starts recording as soon as the d?zlCam is powered on, while the Incident Detection (G-sensor) automatically saves footage of collisions upon impact. Location, speed, date and time data can be optionally recorded allowing drivers to know precisely when and where an incident occurred. The Snapshot feature captures still images and provides truckers the freedom to remove the d?zlCam from their truck to take close-up pictures. Users can also play back driving footage directly on the device, or review on a computer using garmin.com/dashcamplayer.

The d?zlCam comes equipped with preloaded maps of North America with free lifetime map updates, as well as free HD Digital traffic that provides updates as often as every 30 seconds. Drivers can also download the free Smartphone Link app to access live weather radar on the d?zlCam and other real-time data services from a compatible iPhone or Android smartphone.
