OLATHE, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the babyCam, the first in-vehicle video monitor that functions
wirelessly with a compatible Garmin GPS navigator.1 Aimed at
facilitating driver safety, the babyCam conveniently transmits video2
to the GPS navigator display. This allows parents or caregivers the
benefit of daily route guidance while the babyCam monitors their
children in the back seat of a vehicle. Thanks to its night vision, the
babyCam also lets drivers view little passengers at night or in
low-light conditions without disturbance. The Garmin babyCam is being
announced in conjunction with the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas on Oct. 18,
and will be showcased for the first time in booth #3134.
“We are excited to be the first company to create a new product category
that integrates passenger video monitoring with GPS navigation,” said
Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “Having to
awkwardly turn around or pull over on the side of the road to check on
your child is simply unsafe. With babyCam, parents can easily monitor
children as often as they need while running daily errands.”
Drivers can easily mount the babyCam unit to a front- or back-seat
headrest3 within minutes. The babyCam’s adjustable viewing
angle can monitor multiple children in the rear seats of a vehicle.
After driving to a destination, the babyCam reminds drivers to check for
passengers before exiting the vehicle. This useful on-screen alert helps
avoid incidents where a sleeping child or a loved one is accidentally
left unattended inside a vehicle. In an effort to keep both hands safely
on the wheel, drivers can use compatible voice-activated navigators to
control babyCam with their voice. A simple voice command allows users to
switch from the Garmin navigation display to the babyCam view.
When paired with a broad range of Garmin navigators1 for
cars, trucks and RV devices, the babyCam syncs seamlessly to the
compatible device. Furthermore, the babyCam can be powered wirelessly
with two AA batteries (not included), or with a USB power cable (sold
separately). The easy-to-use babyCam monitor features a child-friendly
design with no sharp edges.
The Garmin babyCam is expected to be available in January of 2016 with a
suggested retail price of $199.99 (Garmin GPS navigators sold
separately). For more information, visit www.garmin.com/babyCam.
