Garmin introduces new high-definition Dash Cam with Automatic Incident Detection

Dashboard cameras are becoming more and more popular. The market is flooded with cheap no brand cameras from China, but bigger players are starting to take notice and are rolling out their own premium versions.

One of these companies is Garmin, who is mainly known for its satellite navigation systems.

The Garmin Dash Cam is a high-definition camera that mounts to any vehicles’ windshield and continuously records a wide-angle view of the road while driving.

The camera starts automatically recording when the engine is turned on and stops when it is turned off. The integrated gravity sensor automatically detects incidents, such as braking or a collision, and saves the relevant video files for latter review.

This new Dash Cam is available with and without GPS. If you are already thinking about getting one, the we highly recommend one with GPS, as it time-stamps and geo-tags all footage.

The 2.3-inch colour display is large enough to review video right on the device if needed.

Garmin Dash Cam comes with a 4 GB microSD card and to add more memory a larger card, up to 32 GB can be added.

Garmin UK has not released pricing nor market availability yet, but in U.S. the Garmin Dash Cam 10 without GPS is priced at $219.99 (roughly £135) and Dash Cam 20 with GPS has a suggested retail price of $249.99 (roughly £152) with market launch in February.
