Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd., announced the introduction of the RV 785 GPS navigator that offers RV-specific navigation options and a new built-in dash camera for RV and camping enthusiasts.
According to a press release, the RV 785 offers an easy-to-read, high-resolution seven-inch display while automatically recording the journey and saving video of incidents. The built-in camera also allows for more sophisticated driver assistance features including lane departure and forward collision warnings.
“The introduction of a built-in dash camera to the RV 785 brings one of our most sought-out features to RV travelers,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Drivers can sit back and take advantage of camper-friendly directories loaded into the RV 785 to easily explore new destinations, while the built-in dash camera makes it simple to record and save video of any incidents while traveling.”
RVers can input their motorhome profile into the RV 785. Once the navigator stores the size and weight of the RV3, drivers can receive routes that take into account weight limits, steep grades. The RV 785 also gives drivers access to RV-specific points of interest with the integration of Ultimate Public Campgrounds, KOA, iOverlander and PlanRV. To help locate the best places for a pit stop, the RV 785 is preloaded with a directory of RV parks and services that can be filtered with personal preferences.
In addition, the RV 785 utilizes a road-trip ready feature set that includes the history database of notable sites, a U.S. National Parks directory, TripAdvisor traveler ratings and millions of Foursquare points of interest. The navigator also offers detailed mapping for North America and includes map updates for cross-country travelers to stay up-to-date with the latest map data available. Garmin Traffic is also available directly out of the box with an included traffic cable.
The Garmin RV 785 is expected to be available this month with a suggested retail price of $499.99.
