Garmin Camper 770LMT-D sat nav info

The Garmin Camper 770LMT-D sat nav is designed for caravan and motorhome users that need a little more from their sat nav than domestic car drivers.

Specifically created for use for motorhomes and towing caravans, this Garmin model uses WiFi connectivity to download maps and to update software without you having to connect it to a computer to get updates.

This is a larger-screen style for easy viewing with a 6.95-inch touchscreen display. You also get outstanding features included such as lifetime UK and European maps, which are free to update for the lifetime of your sat nav and traffic updates.

You can enter the dimensions of your caravan into the Garmin Camper 770LMT-D sat nav so that it can plot your route avoiding any roads that would be unsuitable for your vehicle. This way you will never be faced with a low bridge or travel on a narrow road that makes it hard to pass oncoming traffic.

If you want to make multiple stops along the way, you can pre-load these destinations into the sat nav before you leave, which will save you time having to programme the next stop before you leave your previous one.

Enhanced features

The 770LMT-D model also has enhanced features such as local points of interest, campsite information, lane assist for motorways and PhotoReal Junction View to give you a much clearer picture of upcoming road junctions.

Campsite information is fed through ACSI, NKC and MotorHomeFacts. You can search for campsites that can accommodate your needs, such as sites with electric hook-ups, showers, on-site shop and internet access.

Your purchase also includes a free subscription to Digital Traffic through DAB that will give you up to date traffic alerts notifying you of problems along your way such as traffic congestion.

The large-screen display is easy to read and will help you keep a check on your speed and notify you of the local speed limit. As you travel along your route the sat nav will also display an expected time of arrival based on your current speed.

If you are running low on fuel, the sat nav will also alert you to petrol stations in the local area as well as places such as restaurants, cafes and shops should you feel like taking a break from driving.

Compatible accessories

A lot of motorhome drivers and people towing caravans often find that using a reversing camera is very handy for them to help avoid hidden obstacles in their blind spot, so it is good to know that The Garmin Camper 770LMT-D is compatible with the BC 30 wireless backup camera that you can purchase separately.

Linking up the reversing camera allows you to see the view from behind your caravan as you reverse. The feed is displayed on the sat nav screen and many caravan and motorhome owners have saved themselves a lot of bumper dents and damage by using one!

The Garmin Camper 770LMT-D is also compatible with Garmin smartwatches so you can use the pairing of these devices to help locate your vehicle in a busy car park and more.
