Magellan RoadMate 6630T-LM
Portable navigator with dash cam
Our take on the Magellan RoadMate 6630T-LMby Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
Dependable directions and a dash camera
In my younger days I was a real road warrior, hitting the highway every month and using paper maps to follow my favorite bands up and down the east coast. Inevitably, I had a couple of fender benders along the way. If I'd only had a dash cam in my car at the time, I would have had an easier time convincing my insurance company that it was never my fault! Magellan's RoadMate 6630T-LM portable navigator with its built-in dash cam is the perfect tool for me or anyone who spends serious time on the road, offering exceptional guidance and a comprehensive record of your travels.
The RoadMate 6630T-LM offers maps of the entire U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, plus 7 million searchable points of interest for when you need to find a place to eat, sleep, or fill up the tank. You'll hear spoken street names at turns, and lane guidance shows you the correct lane as you travel through interchanges to keep you on the right path. You can even tell the navigator to avoid certain areas that are less safe or prone to heavy traffic to keep your journeys flowing smoothly. And you'll get handy real-time traffic updates in most metropolitan areas without any extra fees for as long as you own the RoadMate.
More road-friendly features
You can access your favorite destinations in a one-touch menu. Speed limit warnings keep you traveling safely, while landmark guidance helps you find your way by familiar roadside markers and buildings rather than hard-to-see street names. You'll also see branded points of interest on the maps to help you find your favorite destinations for food, coffee, and gas. Magellan also provides help to find parking lots near your position.
Lifetime map updates
Magellan allows you to update the RoadMate's maps up to four times a year free of charge. Simply create an account at Magellan's website, register your device, and connect your navigator to your computer. Whenever there's a new map update available, you can download it to your device.
5" capacitive touchscreen
This RoadMate boasts a high-resolution 5" glass touchscreen display for easy operation. Its capacitive interface means you can control it like your smartphone, with pinch-to-zoom capability so you can move the image and conveniently swipe through menus to suit your needs.
Record your travels
Magellan outfits the RoadMate 6630T-LM with an integrated dash camera that runs independent of the navigation function. The built-in software lets you set up your recording preferences with ease. And you can start to review the proceedings on the navigator's screen in a jiffy. You can save video to the included 4GB microSD™ memory card, and delete unneeded images conveniently.
The RoadMate's camera can record in full 1080p HD, for crisp and detailed images. It offers a 122° wide-angle lens to cover both sides of the street. The camera's 3-axis G-shock sensor detects sudden changes in motion, and can instantly save the video to protected files to keep them from being accidentally overwritten. And you can activate "parking mode" to record and save video when the sensor detects an impact to your vehicle while you're not in it.

2 questions already asked
I cannot find anything specific about recording times you will get with this model. The amount of time will vary depending on the compression it does and the amount of color detail it records. The least amount of time would be 320 minutes while the maximum amount of time would be 1440 minutes on a 64GB card. I wish I could be more specific, but we don't have the information that is needed.
