Anyone Have Garmin RV 785 with Dash Cam?

Newbie picking up new travel trailer in a few weeks and thinking about getting an RV GPS.

What makes the Garmin RV 785 a little different is the built-in dash cam. I don't have a dash cam in my cars, but I have thought about them as a record in an accident.

For those with the Garmin RV 785, how do you like it and your thoughts on the dash cam.

Thanks

I've had it since it came out. It works well. You do need to keep it aimed straight ahead, which means the display cannot be angled towards the driver but the display does have good off-angle viewing.

I use Garmin's "bean bag" mount and placed a small piece of Velcro on each "flap" to keep the mount and the GPS secure on the motorhome's center console.

It's certainly not the best dashcam but with it sitting up high and back from the windshield in a motorhome it doesn't really matter.
