And the winner is...
... the Garmin nüviCam LMT-D
The Garmin nüviCam LMT-D features a forward-facing camera as well as a sat-nav with a 6-inch screen to provide the ultimate in sat-nav technology.
- Sat-nav with integrated dashcam records footage as you drive or whenever there is an incident detected by the shock sensor.
- Uses dashcam in innovate ways such as lane departure warnings, proximity alerts and highlighting destinations on live video screen.
- Free updates for full European mapping.
- Digital traffic updates warns you when delays are ahead and suggests alternative routes.
While the nüviCam won't suit the cab of some A-class motorhomes, for all coachbuilts, panel van conversions and campervans, it's the ideal combination of dashcam and sat-nav in one. Where the Garmin device wins out is by using the technology in different and interesting ways. It's all configuarable as well, so you can use the camera to record your trip, or just have the proximity warning on - it's your choice. The sat-nav itself is top notch. If your motorhome doesn't have one built in, then consider a fantastic addition to your dashboard.

Quite simply the best Bluetooth speaker we've seen and heard this year. If you want to send sounds around your motorhome or into the awning, then this is the way to do it. Waterproof, mud proof, shockproof and exchangeable sleeves is the start, but it's the superb ease of use and fantastic sound that make it a winner.
