Garmin® nüviCam™ LMTHD Guides, Alerts and Records with Built-in Dash Cam and Premium Driver-Assist Features

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced nüviCam LMTHD, the first portable navigation device
(PND) to feature a built-in dash cam and advanced alerts to enhance
driver awareness on the road. Thanks to the integrated dash cam that
continuously records and automatically saves files on impact, the
nüviCam offers the protection of having an eyewitness that records
exactly where and when events occurred.

One of the most comprehensive PNDs to ever hit the roads, the nüviCam
offers the latest in premium driver-assist features typically found only
in luxury vehicles. For example, Forward Collision Warning1
alerts drivers if they’re driving too close to the car ahead; Lane
Departure Warning
1 alerts will appear and sound if the
driver drifts off the road or into oncoming traffic; and Garmin Real
™ takes the guess work out of deciphering hard-to-see house
numbers by displaying the camera view along with a bright arrow to
direct drivers where to go when approaching select destinations.

“The nüviCam LMTHD goes beyond helping drivers get from Point A to Point
B,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “The
intuitive driver-assist features not only lessen the stress of getting
you to your destination, but the nüviCam also provides peace of mind in
knowing that your commute is being recorded and can be referenced should
you need it.”

The nüviCam features a 6-inch pinch-to-zoom glass display with a
high-definition dash cam built in to the back of the device. When
powered on, the integrated dash cam continuously records on the included
microSD card, and if an incident occurs, the device’s Incident Detection
will automatically save files on impact. GPS records exactly where and
when events occur, and drivers can play back the video on the device or
watch later from a computer. There’s also a Snapshot feature on the
nüviCam that allows drivers to capture still images in or outside of the
vehicle if desired. The included magnetic mount enables the device to be
easily and quickly secured or removed from the vehicle.

Other navigation features offered with safety and convenience in mind
include voice-activated navigation that allows drivers to speak commands
to the device while their hands stay safely on the wheel, and Bluetooth®
wireless technology for hands-free calling(requires
Bluetooth-enabled smartphone sold separately). Smartphone
, a free mobile app that connects nüviCam with a compatible
iPhone® or Android™ smartphone, can also provide real-time
data services2, such as live weather radar, to the navigator.
Drivers can even pair the nüviCam with the Garmin BC™ 30 Wireless Backup
Camera (sold separately) to see what’s behind their vehicle when they

To make sure drivers never miss a turn, the nüviCam utilizes Active Lane
Guidance, which uses a combination of voice prompts and visual cues to
prepare users to drive through an exit or interchange with confidence.
Up Ahead appears alongside the driving map and constantly informs of
nearby services, including restaurants, fuel stations and rest areas,
and spoken Garmin Real Directions™ guides drivers like a friend would,
using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. Additional
features included are speed limit warnings, school zone warnings,
photoReal Junction View, Bird’s Eye Junction View, and preloaded
Foursquare® data that adds millions of new and popular points
of interest like restaurants, shops and more.

The nüviCam comes preloaded with detailed maps of North America and free
lifetime3 map updates are included to ensure the most
up-to-date maps, points of interest and navigation information is
