Built-in Dash Cam

Offering the protection of “an eyewitness that never blinks,” Garmin DriveAssist 50LMT 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. The snapshot feature on the device also allows you to capture still images, so you can even remove the unit from your vehicle to take close-up pictures of any collision damage. For storage of your recorded video data, a replaceable microSD™ card (class 4 or higher) is included.

Innovative Driver Awareness Features

Garmin DriveAssist 50LMT uses camera-assisted driver awareness features and driver alerts to encourage safer driving and increase situational awareness. When your car is stopped at a junction or in traffic, “Go” Alert notifies you when traffic in front of you has started to move. Forward Collision Warning³ 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 Warning³ 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

Garmin DriveAssist 50LMT notifies you when driving the wrong way on a one-way street and sends warnings for nearby school zones. Receive alerts for nearby red light and speed cameras6, and be prepared for sudden halts in traffic with upcoming traffic jam7 warning. For longer drives, a fatigue warning8 suggests break times and potential rest areas after hours of driving. Other safety features include alerts for sharp curves, speed changes, railway crossings, animal crossings and more. The Up Ahead feature lets you easily see places up ahead and milestones along your route like borders, without leaving the map view.
