Advanced sat nav with built-in dash cam
The Garmin DriveAssist 50 is part of the new generation of car sat navs from Garmin. It is packed with the latest technology and features to make driving a calmer experience. Features include a 5” touchscreen, built-in dash cam, full maps of Europe, traffic alerts all with free lifetime updates. Smart Notifications include driver awareness alerts, voice control, hands-free calling, collision warning, lane departure warnings and more. Plus, all your phone alerts for calls, text messages and calendar items will be displayed on-screen via the free smartphone app.
Built-in Dash Cam
The dash cam never blinks and records the road ahead for future reference. It uses the GPS functions to record location, speed and direction and the G-Sensor will automatically save files in the event of a collision. You can view video on the device or your computer using the Garmin Dash Cam Player . Video is saved to the include 4GB Class 10 microSD card (you can fit a bigger card if you wish).
Driver Awareness Features
The sat nav uses the camera to provide advanced situational awareness features and will warn you if you start to get too close to the car in front, or start to drift out of lane. If you’re stopped at a junction or lights a “Go” alert will sound when traffic starts to move. Finally, when you arrive at your destination the camera will activate and show an arrow pointing to the building you are looking for – no more squinting to see house numbers!
Your Garmin will provide helpful driver alerts along your journey to improve safety and situational awareness. It will warn you of sharp curves, speed changes, rail crossings and animal crossings. If you drive the wrong way on a one-way street you’ll be alerted.
School Zones are highlighted and you’ll be warned when you enter one and what the speed limit is.
If you’re on a long journey your Garmin Drive will provide fatigue warnings and guide you to the nearest rest area.
Up Ahead is a feature that alerts you to landmarks and milestones so you don’t need to keep looking at the map or screen.
