In many respects, this device represents good strategic marketing from the company because truckers probably spend more times on the road compared to other drivers. They need more-than-average navigational device, and this is where Garmin dezlCam LMTHD comes in.
As the name says, the navigational unit includes dash cam as well as lifetime maps and traffic updates. More than that, it brings many of Garmin’s specific features and services such as Real Directions, Active Lane Guidance, photoReal junction, Bird’s Eye, and more.
The dezlCam LMTHD measures at 7.2-inch W x 3.7-inch H x 0.6-inch D (or 1.3-inch D with the camera). It has a 6-inch screen that produces 800 x 400 pixels resolution.
Detailed maps of North America is pre-loaded, and because this is specifically designed for trucks, the maps include truck-related road restrictions such as bridge heights, weight limits, sharp curves, etc.
Although these features are not available everywhere, at least they are provided for all major roads. Custom truck routing allows you to specify vehicle’s data including weight, height, length, and cargo to determine the best route to your destination.
Another truck-related feature is support for vehicle service history and data. It covers many things related to vehicle use for examples fuel consumption and mileage in any given province or state, HOS (Hours of Service), and IFTA related functions.
You can even download the information to your computer, and use the data to fill tax materials or other forms. This method makes it possible for users to have a digital service history with which they can easily monitor tire mileage, oil changes, tire pressure, and more.
Even the preloaded POIs are truck-related. There is a directory list filled with more than 30,000 places including truck service and repair locations all across U.S. and Canada. Sorting option is available so you can choose any specific location based on amenities such as WiFi, truck wash, showers, etc.
The built-in dash cam is pretty much optimized that it creates not only a record footage of your trip, but also captures unfortunate moments of accidental impacts automatically.
This function is made possible by the integrated G-Sensor which mainly serves as incident detector. Anytime it senses sudden deceleration or hard braking, the G-Sensor takes over and triggers the snapshot function.
You can also capture the snapshot manually if necessary; you need to take GPS device off the suction cup and use it as a camera. The package gives an 8GB microSD to save footage.
A GPS overlay can be activated to complement the snapshot so a precise location on the map, speed, and time of the impact are saved as well.
Garmin dezlCam LMTHD is Bluetooth-enabled and compatible with Smartphone Link App. When paired with a Bluetooth-enabled phone, you can make or take hands-free phone calls directly through the GPS unit.
With Smartphone Link companion app, you can use your mobile phone’s existing data plan to share information like destination or location and receive weather alerts.
HD Digital Traffic is also available without any subscription fee; it gives you frequent updates about weather, possible detours, routes, and delay.
