We’re all busy planning our summer caravan tours, and one thing that it’s crucial to get right is your journey – when you’re towing your caravan, you want your drive there and back to be as easy and as stress-free as possible.
Getting the best sat-nav for your needs is vital, otherwise you risk getting lost or – even worse – stuck.
That’s where the Garmin Camper 890 and Garmin Camper 1090 come in. They’re perfect for the needs of caravanners, helping you to find routes suitable for towing at the push of a button.
The right route for you
The reason Garmin’s Camper range is able to find your route so easily is that you can enter the dimensions and weight of your towing outfit; the sat-nav will then suggest suitable directions for you¹, given the size of your car and caravan, avoiding narrow roads and low bridges.
So no matter whether you’re towing a tiny teardrop or one of the latest eight-foot-wide twin axles, you can be more confident that your route will suit you.
You’ll also get handy warnings of sharp bends or steep hills – all of which could catch the unwary caravanner out – to help you tow in confidence.
The high-resolution, edge-to-edge screens – either 8 or 10 inches in size – mean it’s really easy to see what your next turn should be; you can even view the screen in either portrait or landscape mode.
There’s no need to take your hands off the wheel, either: Garmin Camper models can be operated by your voice, helping you to keep your eyes safely on the road.
You can even pair your new sat-nav with a compatible Garmin backup camera (sold separately) or third-party wired backup camera to see behind your vehicle while you’re reversing.
Find the perfect campsite
Many of us like to stay somewhere new while we’re out on tour. Perhaps you’ve decided you’d like to stop off on that long drive home, to take a well-earned break from towing – it’s a scenario that many of us have found ourselves in.
Help is at hand: if you need to find somewhere to pitch up overnight while you’re on the road, your Garmin Camper sat-nav can assist – it features a preloaded directory of campsites from ACSI™ and Campercontact™.
Not only that, but if you’re looking for specific facilities – such as Wi-Fi, so you can send an important email, or electric hook-up if your battery needs charging – you can filter the results by amenities, making it easier to find the perfect site for your needs and those of your family.
What’s more, you’ll be able to access content from iOverlander™, helping you find a great place to stop for lunch. Getting low on gas? You can even find out where to exchange your bottle, so you’re more like to save both effort and time.
So with the Garmin Camper range, caravanners are in safe hands, no matter where you choose to tour this summer.
