Back Up Camera

I wonder if this would ever be backwards compatible with any of the more recent Nuvi units ?

If not.... I may have to bite the bullet on one that has the camera capability.

Camera

A Garmin with a backup camera.

I always thought a backup camera was kind of a "gimmick" until I bought a car that has one. I love the thing!

No indication how the camera

No indication how the camera wirelessly connects to the unit. Wonder what kind of delay is in place as the camera powers on when the vehicle is placed in reverse.

dash cam with and without GPS--

One thing I found interesting in these two dash cams was the price difference that GPS introduces--

$220 retail without GPS, $250 retail with GPS.

GPS adds $30 to the retail price; that makes it maybe $5 in parts?

This is a wonderful indication of how the technology has evolved: from a high-price standalone device to an add-in subsystem in another device.

Safety Tip

A backup camera can be a very useful tool in avoiding accidents but so can using good common sense.

Whenever I go into my driveway or any parking spot in parking lots, I ALWAYS back in. Since I'm already in the roadway I back in when it's safe to do so.
The advantage is when leaving the spot or driveway I have a much better view of what's in front of me rather than rely on mirrors to exit that have blind spots.

Another benefit of backing in, should your battery go dead it can easily get a boost from another vehicle instead of trying to push the vehicle out to get access to the hood.

Not a bad price

That's not a bad MSRP for the incident detection model, and you'll probably be able to get it for somewhat less in a few months from Amazon. I may eventually get one, but I'll wait for some of the expected bugs to get worked out first.

Plan your exit from parking

It's an overlooked defensive driving technique... learned from a retired state trooper they (troopers) were directed to back into parking spots or park where they had to drive forward to leave the spots because it saved enough $$ in avoided accidents & repairs incurred while backing out of parking spots.

Backing in

I ALWAYS back into the parking spot at church because of pedestrian traffic after the service.

Saw the new 7' device at CES

Saw the new 7' device at CES and really didn't care for it, too big; maybe for SUV but not a small car.
Backup camera is two separate devices, you hook the camera up to your backup lights first then you when you shift in reverse, screen changes

Thanks for the links

You can also hook up the backup camera to a live 12volt and there is a toggle switch on the GPS to view the reverse camera.

I would think that has one disadvantage, you can forget to turn it on when backing up.

One possible advantage it can be turned on even when going forward.

Nuvi 350 long gone, Nuvi 855LMT, Nuvi 2797LMT, DriveSmart 50 LMT-HD, 3790LMT now my daughters. Using Windows 10. DashCam A108C with GPS.

Camera!

I like the idea of incorporating a backup camera! Just hope it is better than the camera I have now. There is at least a 1 second delay between what my cat is doing, and what it shows on the monitor. Not a whole lot, but when adding that to reaction time, it could mean backing into something. What I am wondering is, how long is the delay time between the camera and the GPS? Something to think about.

Unless you are the lead sled dog, the view never changes. I is retard... every day is Saturday! I still use the Garmin 3590 LMT even tho I upgraded to the Garmin 61 LMT. Bigger screen is not always better in my opinion.

As long as "recalculating" is gone

I will ocnsider one with a back up camera, as long as it doesnt say "recalculating" when I make a wrong turn! A gentle redirection is all that is necessary, but I do not want to hear about it, like I did something wrong!

camera

I have been considering a backup camera. Will have to check out the new GPS system when available.

Nothing new, just like the rest of the CES this year.

For Garmin, it is not a new product, only new to the US market. Garmin already have GPS capable of connecting to a camera for at least 3 years in other parts of world.

More Crap!

Garmin is going down the drain, new models are just gimmicky!!!
Ever since they did away with Routes and came up with Trip Planner, they've gone downhill.
I will never buy another Garmin unless they bring Routes back!!!
I will buy a Tom Tom if one of my units die.

I like to look back when I

I like to look back when I am driving forward...especially when stopped at lights & stop signs etc...lol

Like to watch people in back

Like to watch people in back flipping you the bird, eh?

Thanks

Very interesting. Certainly likely to be a lot more cost effective than those rear cameras orderable with your new vehicle or added on by the dealer.

Will have to consider one for my vehicle which has some level of obstruction to the rear.

Fred

Definitely.

This would be on my to get list. Surprised no one thought of this sooner.

Couldn't agree more

@ Muell9K...

Have Done That Since I Started Driving Many Years Ago.

I'm not really lost.... just temporarily misplaced!

I'd love to get a 6 inch screen

But knowing how Garmin works, there will be a ton of bugs that have to be fixed in later patches, so it is always safest to just wait a few months.

Thanks....

This info is very helpful.

Recalculating is gone!!!

My 2350 LMT was one of the last models to have that.

I personally liked it, but to each his own.

i could just...

I could remember several years ago how many thought the stand alone gps would be extinct. Keep up the innovation Garmin.

I like the idea if the price

I like the idea if the price is cost effective.

Worth a Look

I could use a backup camera especially here in NYC

Backup

Will have to keep an eye on this and see what the reviews say after they start showing up. Would make a much cleaner install in my truck than a second monitor for a backup camera.

Wonder if you can switch between camera and GPS under voice commands. Would be handy when my slide in camper is on and I just want to check behind me while going down the road.

Cool Idea

I like it, cool idea. I would consider buying it.

Too bulky

If it was a small cam that fed it (Front and rear cams) and a regular sized GPS that displayed, it would be cool. This is just a big gizmo

And the frustration on their faces...lol

Probably buy it

Seeing as how I already own three working Garmin GPS models ... I'll probably buy one of these. Can't resist being one of Garmin's beta testers by being an early adopter.

garmin 2798 LMT

I like the new 2798 LMT 7" screen with traffic,life time map, line asistance and the back up camera included, it is very nice but the price is $400.00 right now from Garmin.this one also include speed and red light camera..I am sure that they are coming from this POI web site.

Please advise where you got the information "this one also include speed and red light camera..I am sure that they are coming from this POI web site.

No Garmin units ever came with Red Light & Speed Camera's from the POI Factory site.
Some Garmin units come with Trial Cyclops Safety Camera POI but to get updates for the file you will have to buy a subscription.
