Built-in Dash Cam
Offering the protection of “an eyewitness that never blinks,” Garmin DriveAssist comes with a compact, built-in dash cam that continuously records your drive. If a collision occurs, Incident Detection G-sensor will automatically save files on impact. GPS records exactly where and when events occurred. Easily play back video footage right on the device, along with a map view of where you were, at the time of the incident. If you like, you can watch footage later on your computer using our Dash Cam Player.

Innovative Driver Awareness Features
Garmin DriveAssist uses camera-assisted driver awareness features and driver alerts to encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness. When your car is stopped at an intersection or in traffic, “Go” Alert notifies you when stopped traffic in front of you has started to move. Forward Collision Warning alerts if you’re driving too closely to the vehicle ahead. And if you drift off the road or into oncoming traffic, you’ll see and hear Lane Departure Warning alerts. Hard-to-read house numbers are a thing of the past, thanks to the Garmin Real Vision™ feature. When approaching select destinations, your navigation display will switch to camera view, and a bright arrow will point to where you need to go.
Helpful Driver Alerts for Your Daily Commute

Warnings include alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railroad crossings, animal crossings and more. For longer drives, a fatigue warning4 suggests break times and potential rest areas after hours of driving. The Up Ahead feature lets you easily see places up ahead along your route, without leaving the map view.
