Well -

I'm getting ready to move to CA and decided to kill 2 birds with one purchase: I need a new sat nav and also need a dash cam. I am short and have a smallish windscreen, so I can't be mounting a lot of stuff up there. I can't believe that there aren't more options for a combined unit - so what I'm seeing seems to really come down to the NuviCam. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WAP8PI2

The other options:
Magellan - The 10 most recent reviews are 2 5's, 1 3, and the rest 1's and 2's. 70% give it 2 or less. So noping out of this one. https://www.amazon.com/Magellan-RoadMate-6230-LM-Navigator-Dashcam/dp/B00JAUODW2
OR
Install this over the rear view mirror https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00E56WY18, then replace the sat nav separately... I only have 1 cig lighter port, but also have a USB port in the glovebox, so it might work.

Am I missing anything?

Thanks!

you can always buy a expansion for your cig lighter. I used to have a single that turned it into a 4 way. Got it at Trashmart(Walmart) for like $10. Just gotta be careful not to plug in lots of power hungry devices into it at same time. It's only a 15amp fuse that powers that cig lighter.

Looks to me like the Garmin might be the way to go, I have a garmin nuvi and I love it. Mine doesn't have the built in camera but has all the apps set up for it. I just have to buy the additional camera.
