Less clut­ter on your car wind­screen is al­ways a good thing, and for those want­ing to add a dash-cam but not yet hav­ing the de­lights of built-in nav­i­ga­tion, Navman has cre­ated the Drive Duo. It com­bines both GPS nav­i­ga­tion and a dash cam in the one com­pact de­vice.

The Drive Duo has a 5.0-inch (12.7 cm) touch­screen, with Aus­tralian and New Zealand ‘life­time’ maps, and also pre-loaded with a se­lec­tion of lan­guages in­clud­ing Greek, Turk­ish, Ital­ian and Chi­nese. There is also a mileage re­porter (es­pe­cially handy for par­ents teach­ing chil­dren to drive), while multi-stop trip op­ti­mi­sa­tion can make it eas­ier to plan side-trips dur­ing a jour­ney. In ad­di­tion, the Zo­mato Restau­rant Guide pro­vides re­views and rec­om­men­da­tions of din­ing op­tions, pubs and bars around. Other GPS fea­tures in­clude 3D junc­tion views with real sig­nage im­agery and lane guid­ance, so you’ll never miss an im­por­tant turn-off. Blue­tooth Hands-Free al­lows you to an­swer your smart­phone safely while driv­ing, as well as pro­vid­ing con­tin­ued guid­ance even when trav­el­ling through tun­nels.

The Drive Duo’s dash cam de­liv­ers 140-de­grees view­ing, plus a 3-axis G sen­sor which reg­is­ters the di­rec­tion of an im­pact (us­ing Navman’s MiVue Man­ager soft­ware). The Ad­vanced Driver Sys­tems (ADAS) safety fea­tures in­clude a lane de­par­ture alert, a front col­li­sion alert and a front de­par­ture warn­ing which warns if the car in front has moved off with­out you notic­ing. Op­ti­mised day and night record­ing aims for bright and clear footage re­gard­less of the weather con­di­tions or when driv­ing at night.
