Garmin nüviCam LMTHD review


The NuviCam doesn't just watch the road; it watches your back with a dash cam, GPS, and driver assist functionali-ty.

Simple, accurate navigation on high-resolution screen ; Easy-to-use voice commands ; Driver-assist features are a nice addition ; HD dash cam never stops recording

Driver assist safety functions are costly

In the end, the Garmin NuviCam is an ambitious product that does everything it sets out to do, and does it quite well. It could also turn out to be a huge trendsetter for dash-mounted devices.

Garmin Nuvicam LMTHD review: This premium dashcam commands respect


Garmin's Nuvicam LMTHD is the cream of our crop of dashcams, with a huge touchscreen display and high-quality video. A unit this nice needs to be easier to conceal, though, and its

Large touch display ; Navigation data is very convenient ; Integrated GPS ; Accommodates Garmin's Wi-Fi backup camera

Large size and conspicuous mounting could make it a tempting steal ; You can't record from the backup camera

This is a premium-level product and you get a lot of features for the money, but it also seems really easy to steal.

Garmin nuviCam LMTHD


Garmin's pricey nüviCam LMTHD offers a huge array of features, including an integrated dash cam, but navigation issues could delay you from reaching your destination on time.

Large, easy-to-read touch display. Free lifetime map updates and traffic alerts. HD dash cam.

Some navigation quirks, especially when recalculating routes. Searching for POIs using voice commands can be frustrating.

Traffic, Dash Cam, and Conclusions The nüvicam LMTHD comes with free lifetime traffic alerts. It must be plugged in using the provided cable, which includes a traffic receiver. But while there was some significant traffic along my routes, which was...

Garmin's nüviCam is the best GPS unit you don't need


Remember stand-alone GPS units for your car? The mostly square, chubby little touchscreen devices that barked directions at us as we drove used to be suction-cupped to nearly every auto on the...

Big, bright display ; Loud voice guidance ; Sleek design

High cost ; Dashcam and driver assistance have questionable utility

Garmin nuviCam LMT-D


The nuviCam LMT-D is a 6-inch sat-nav combined with a built-in camera.

Built-in dashboard camera ; Lifetime European maps ; Lifetime Garmin Digital Traffic

Bulky – fills a lot of your windscreen ; Very short battery life

A sensible combination of sat-nav and dashboard camera, although the resulting size could be an issue for some drivers.

Garmin NuviCam LMT-D review


Added dash cam makes the sat nav feel relevant again

Dash cam is a corking addition ; Camera allows for extra features like collision warning and lane departure ; Makes satnavs feel relevant again

Glarey screen ; We prefer TomTom's maps to Garmin's ; Premium price tag

You pay a lot for the Garmin NuviCam LMT-D but your money gets you a state-of-the-art sat nav and a very competent dash cam, which could save money on your insurance, and possibly prevent damage to your car an, indeed, your body. It really feels this...

The Garmin nuviCam is a 6-inch sat nav with a built-in dashboard camera. It has a range of premium features - and a premium price to match - as well as free lifetime maps and live traffic updates. We put it through our tough sat nav testing, to see...

Large screen easy to read


It is a very large unit. Bugger then I thought. If you need something bigger to see this unit is it! It works very well in true Garmin fashion. What I don't like about it is since it is so big it takes up space on your window. Also with the camera is...
