At A Glance

The standard features of a satellite navigation device for a car have remarkably improved over the last few years. The competition among manufacturers are getting tougher, leading them to better creativity without sacrificing design and price.

In terms of design and hardware, the RoadMate 6230 is not very different from most GPS navigation devices in the market. It measures at around 5.2-inch W x 3.3-inch H x 0.8-inch D; it weighs 6.4 oz.

The front design is dominated by a 5-inch transmissive LCD screen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. On the back, there is an integrated camera that continuously records HD video of the road ahead.

It is a 120-degree wide-view angle camera with CMOS sensor, meaning it covers most of the area ahead of your car regardless the unit’s position on the dashboard. This RoadMate is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

The package also includes windshield mount, vehicle power adapter, USB AC adapter, quick start guide, and SmartGPS apps download card.

Video Camera

The RoadMate 6230-LM’s distinguishing feature is its ability to continuously record HOD video of the road ahead and store the video file on SD card. Integrated with the camera is a G-sensor which functions to detect sudden motions or speed changes you make while you’re driving.

It will include any event of excessive braking, sharp cornering, quick acceleration, or even sudden impact. Its G-sensor will capture video footage of the particular event including the moments preceding and following the moment. It even stores video information and the location.

In addition, the 6230-LM also supports wireless back-up camera to give you a rear view display on the screen when you are reversing your car. The wireless back-up camera unit is, however, sold separately.

Navigational Features

Besides the video recording ability, RoadMate 6230-LM has almost all premium navigational features in a GPS navigation system. The map coverage includes United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico; you also get free lifetime map updates. There are around 7 million preloaded POIs such as gas stations, hotels, restaurants, etc.

Other features such as Junction View, Landmark Guidance, route planning, and speed limit warning are as well included. Junction View is a common feature is a GPS navigation system to display images of intersections and freeway signs.

The image will guide you to take the right lane without confusion. Landmark Guidance uses the names of popular buildings and other easy-to-see landmarks rather than street names, allowing you to receive and recognize the navigation more easily.

The option to plan your route with multiple stops is also available. You can even save your search history as bookmarks. It also allows you to create shortcuts to your favorite destinations.

Additional Information

There is a speed limit warning with audible and visual alerts. Traffic camera alerts in RoadMate 6230-LM is provided by PhantomALERT. It notifies you about any upcoming traffic light and speed cameras along the way. PhantomALERT is users-based service, and the database is updated by thousands of drivers.
