Drive with an eyewitness using the new all-in-one dash cam/navigator series from Garmin
Garmin DriveCam 76 and RVcam 795 bring premium navigation technology and high-def video capabilities to everyday and recreational drivers
Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NYSE: GRMN), has announced the Garmin DriveCamä 76 and RVcam 795 all-in-one navigators with a built-in, high-definition dash cam1. Both models feature a sharp 7-inch display, 1080p HD video recording and wide 140-degree field of view to capture a broad picture of the road ahead. Once plugged in, the camera continually records and saves video of detected incidents, serving as an eyewitness behind the wheel. Saved videos are automatically stored in the secure online Vault and drivers can easily view and share2 clips using the Garmin Drive™ smartphone app.
“We’re excited about this series of all-in-one navigators, which combines our best-in-class car and RV navigation features with a sharp, built-in dash cam, giving you confidence that you’ll have video proof of unexpected incidents,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Whether you’re making the morning commute to work or a trek across the country with the family, these navigators bring greater peace of mind to your time on the road.”
Thanks to the built-in, high-definition camera, these integrated devices help increase driver awareness with advanced driver assisted notices, including forward collision and lane departure warnings3.
Each camera-assisted navigator in this series is purpose-built with a feature set tailored for different types of motorists. Garmin recently introduced the dēzlCam OTR710, an all-in-one trucking navigator with built-in dash cam aimed at helping professional truck drivers protect their livelihoods. With the new Garmin DriveCam 76 and RVcam 795, everyday commuters and RV drivers can benefit from these higher-end camera safety features that have historically been limited to factory-installed technology packages from select vehicle manufacturers.

- Drive smarter with live traffic, weather reports and fuel price information when paired with the Garmin Drive app.

Garmin also announced the new RV 795 GPS navigator, providing camping enthusiasts with the same leading-edge navigation benefits as the RVcam 795, but removes the built-in dash camera and camera-related features.
Available now, the Garmin DriveCam 76 has a suggested retail price of $449.99 US, while the RVcam 795 has a suggested retail price of $599.99 US. The RV 795 has a suggested retail price of $449.99 US. To learn more visit garmin.com/automotive.

Moldaway Eliminates Common RV Stains
Between rain and wet clothes and humidity, RVs accumulate moisture that becomes the perfect breeding ground for mold, mildew and algae. Residential cleaning products are not the answer to combat growth; they typically contain bleach or chlorine that can seriously fade and degrade RV finishes. Instead, Moldaway from Shurhold is designed for such applications. It’s the safe, easy way to get rid of organic stains and prevent their return.
Made in the USA, Moldaway is a highly-concentrated oxygenated cleaner that becomes active when mixed with water. It has no harsh odours, is gentle on the skin and won’t leave behind a slippery residue.
Beyond organic stains, Moldaway is perfect for removing dirt and dried-on food and drink spills. It’s safe to use on fibreglass, paint, vinyl, plastic, carpeting, wood, and most indoor and outdoor fabrics.
Using Moldaway is easy. Two tablespoons of the powder are mixed with a quart of warm water and stirred thoroughly. The solution is brushed or sponged onto the surface and allowed to remain saturated for 10 minutes; stubborn stains can soak longer. Then, the area is rinsed with fresh water. A 22 oz. jar of Shurhold Moldaway costs $16.48 US.
Shurhold is dedicated to educating owners on RV value preservation. Inventor of the One Handle Does It All system, Shurhold manufactures specialty care items and accessories to clean, polish and detail.

Glidecoat Restores and Protects RV Front Caps
Whether you are travelling an interstate or a lonely backroad, the front of an RV takes a lot of abuse. Windblown dirt, bugs, road tar and other debris all combine with continual UV ray exposure to slowly degrade the finish. Plus, because of the height and stubbornness of the stains, they’re difficult to remove. The solution is to use RV Cap Kit from Glidecoat. A collection of easy-to-use products, it restores and protects the leading surfaces on all types of RVs.
Traditional RV protection methods don’t match the Glidecoat system. Paint protection film yellows, cracks and peels over time, requiring costly replacement. Difficult to put on and take off, custom-fitted bras accumulate dirt beneath them that scratches the finish as the fabric moves while driving. The most common solution is wax, but it’s a temporary one at best that requires frequent time-consuming reapplication. The Glidecoat RV Cap Kit creates a diamond-hard barrier that protects the RV for up to 18 months and maintains its showroom shine.
The RV Cap Kit includes everything needed to clean and prepare the fibreglass, vinyl or painted surface. Nano Wash removes dirt and grime, while Nano Compound and Nano Polish buff the finish. Glidecoat Surface Wipe eliminates residual wax, oil and polish in preparation for the final chemical, RV Ceramic Coating.
The cornerstone of the Glidecoat system, RV Ceramic Coating creates a long-lasting molecular bond to the surface material. Resistant to chemicals and UV rays, it’s hydrophobic. Water, grime and black dirt streaks are easily washed away with a simple blast from a garden hose. The kit covers 60 sq. ft. with two coats of RV Ceramic Coating.
Including microfiber towels, applicators and gloves, Glidecoat RV Cap Kit costs $99.95 US. A video showing the process of detailing an entire fifth wheel is at www.bit.ly/GlidecoatRV.

Whether it’s a traditional cotton-based canvas or a modern technical acrylic, outdoor fabrics seem to be magnets for stains. Washing and scrubbing with a detergent may remove some of the dirt, but organics such as mold, mildew and algae will remain and leave blemishes that are difficult to remove. For a complete textile makeover, there’s Mold & Mildew Stain Remover from Iosso Products. Biodegradable, it renews a wide range of fabrics, vinyl, wood and plastic without the harsh chemicals that alter colours and deteriorate materials.
While it cleans, Mold & Mildew Stain Remover eliminates the organics so they won’t grow back. It works on natural and synthetic fabrics used in boat and RV covers, tents, outdoor furniture cushions and carpeting, awnings and umbrellas. It solves tough problems like bird and insect droppings, tree sap, fish blood, grease, oil and many food stains.
Biodegradable, Mold & Mildew Stain Remover can be disposed of without fear of polluting. Gentle on the skin, it has no strong, harsh odours.
Highly concentrated, one 12 oz. jar of Mold & Mildew Stain Remover makes up to three gallons of cleaning solution when mixed with water. After brushing or spraying on the surface, it’s allowed to set for 15 minutes followed by thorough rinsing.
Using Iosso Water Repellent after cleaning with Mold & Mildew Stain Remover will keep fabrics looking fresh. It maintains the water resistance and vibrant colours of synthetic and natural materials.
Iosso Mold & Mildew Stain Remover comes in three convenient sizes. The 4 oz. size makes 1 gal. of solution and costs $4.95 US; 12 oz. makes 3 gals. and is $15.35 US; and 65 oz. makes 16 gals. and runs $75 US. A 32 oz. spray bottle of Water Repellent covers approximately 40 sq. ft. and retails for $21.49 US.
