“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 along the journey.”
Travelers can easily prepare for their next customized adventure by
inputting 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 and more. 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 vast 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
offers detailed mapping for North America and incudes 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 RV 785 keeps drivers connected during their travels. By downloading
the Garmin Drive™ app, it’s easy to take advantage of live
traffic updates, advanced weather forecasts and photoLive traffic cameras4
right on the RV 785 navigation screen. When paired with a compatible
smartphone, drivers can keep their hands on the wheel and take advantage
of smart features such as hands-free calling, smart notifications5
and voice-activated navigation. And built-in Wi-Fi®
connectivity gives users access to map and software updates without
having to connect the navigator to a computer.
The included powered magnetic mount makes it easy to attach, detach, or
adjust the location of the RV 785, and a video-in port also allows for
third-party wireless camera usage. The RV 785 is compatible with the
Garmin BC™ 35 wireless backup camera solution to help drivers spot
hard-to-see obstructions behind the RV.
The Garmin RV 785 is expected to be available this month with a
suggested retail price of $499.99. To learn more, visit www.garmin.com.
