|Garmin babyCam is compatible with the following devices|
In times when you have to take your baby for a drive, it can be difficult to focus on the road while keeping an eye on the baby at the same time. There are indeed plenty of safety features you can install, but a baby can be unpredictable at times and therefore you have to always stay alert.
Pair with your Garmin Navigator
A conventional baby monitor cannot be used in a car, but Garmin babyCam can probably help to solve this problem. It functions almost in the same way as any baby monitor, but it works in car and can be paired with many of the company’s car GPS.
The camera is small, measuring at only 86.5mm W x 39.9mm H x 43.7mm D and weighing at 53.0 grams. It records videos in 640 x 480 pixels resolution at 30 frames per second.
It is designed to deliver video feed through wireless connectivity to a compatible car GPS from Garmin. When paired with a compatible Garmin navigation device you can switch view from main driving map to video feed on-demand with a single press.
If your Gamin navigational device has voice-activated function, you can switch by using spoken command as well. Many Garmin nuvi navigators are compatible as well as several dezl devices, and one RV navigator.
Garmin babyCam is packaged with headrest mount and power cable which doubles as wireless video and traffic receiver. Headrest mount is a bracket with twist-to-clamp mechanism to place the camera at the headrest of car seat.
You can install it on the front or back seat depending on the position of your baby. To sync the camera with an existing Garmin car navigational device, you need to connect the car GPS to the power cable packaged with babyCam.
Because this power cable also functions as traffic receiver, you will not lose traffic update feature. Once both devices are paired, live video feed will be displayed on the navigator’s screen.
Another good thing from babyCam is night vision. Thanks to this feature, you will not have to turn on the interior light to see your little passenger. It is possible to adjust the viewing angle to get better shot and focus.
The camera runs on AA batteries or USB power cord. For long journey, you may want to use an external power adapter or AA batteries to keep the camera recording. Once you switch from main driving map to video feed from babyCam, you can switch back manually or automatically by using preset duration options from 10, 20, or 30 seconds.
Anytime you arrive at your destination, the babyCam gives an alert for you to check the backseat of your car. It also gives alert for low battery power.
A compatible Garmin car navigator can be paired with up to four additional cameras including wireless backup camera. For example, if your car already has a backup camera, you can pair the navigator with three babyCam units. Multiple video feeds can be displayed on the navigator’s screen.
