Garmin launches a special GPS for campers!

After several models intended for motorhomes, Garmin now markets a GPS called CamperVan designed for campervans and campervans. An initiative launched in the midst of the “Van Life” movement.

Garmin chose the right moment to launch its new product called CamperVan. In full swing Van Life, the American company is launching a new GPS specially adapted to these small “mobile homes”. Thus, this new GPS offers special routes for this type of vehicle.

GPS redesigned for the van life spirit

Concretely, this new model fulfills the same functions than a GPS for motorhome, but adapting to the most small morphology converted vans and vans. Certain roads or certain rest areas may therefore be proposed by the Garmin CamperVan tool when the motorhome GPS blocks these routes and these stopping places. Garmin cooperates with several companies like Tripadvisor, Michelin, or Campercontact.

A new Roadtrip Routes feature

For the more adventurous, Garmin has designed a new feature for this GPS. Since campervans and converted vans are smaller, more manoeuvrable and lighter than a motorhome, this function offers alternative routes

, more “wild” with natural and tourist spots inaccessible for larger vehicles. The perfect opportunity to find a quiet spot to camp under the stars.

Classic Garmin features

In terms of dimensions, this Garmin CamperVan is equipped with a 6.95 inch borderless. For the moment, this is the only size available. It has all the classic attributes that one would expect from a GPS. The Garmin CamperVan is also compatible with the brand’s BC 30 or BC 40 reversing cameras. They are sold separately.

A lower price than a motorhome GPS

Garmin’s last argument, this special “Van Life” model is sold a hundred euros cheaper than its motorhome counterpart of the same dimensions. Count 299,99 € to get this new tool with the included smartphone application.
