OLATHE, Kansas — Garmin International Inc has introduced the BC 50 and BC 50 with Night Vision wireless backup cameras.
The BC 50 with night vision offers Garmin’s proprietary NightGlo technology that can illuminate up to 20-feet behind a vehicle for optimal visibility at night or in dark settings, according to a news release.
Compatible with a variety of Garmin GPS navigation devices, the BC 50 Series is purpose-built for a broad range of needs — from parallel parking on a busy city street to backing an RV into a campsite, off-roading in the great outdoors or reversing a semi-truck into a docking bay.
“Garmin is in the business of building confidence behind the wheel and this is especially critical when customers need to shift into reverse,” Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales, said. “The night vision is an overall game changer for drivers whose vehicles or trailers lack reverse lights or the ability to clearly see behind the vehicle.”
The BC 50 backup cameras offer sharp HD resolution, a wide 160-degree field of view, a long wireless range and a compact, IP67 weather-resistant housing designed to withstand snow, rain and road conditions, the news release stated.
Customers can purchase an optional 50-foot extension cable that expands the wireless transmission range up to 100-feet, ideal for extended rigs and vehicle-trailer configurations needing a reliable backup camera solution.
A variety of Garmin navigators are compatible with the BC 50 Series. Notable product lines include:
- Garmin DriveSmart 66/76/86 series for every-day commuters;
- Tread® all-terrain series for recreational off-roading or overlanding enthusiasts; and
- New dēzl™ OTR610/710/810/1010 series for professional truck drivers.
Both models include a license plate mount and mounting hardware, and the night vision model adds a bracket mount for more mounting options.
