January 6, 2014 – Garmin’s upcoming high-definition Dash Cam mounts to any windshield and continuously records a wide-angle view of the road while driving. Once installed, the camera is fully automated: it starts recording when the engine is turned on and stops when it is turned off.

Meantime, an integrated gravity sensor (G-Sensor) automatically detects incidents, such as braking or a collision, and saves the relevant video files. Dash Cam is available with and without GPS; the latter version time-stamps and geo-tags all footage, so users can view exactly where and when events occurred.

Dash Cam records 1080p, 720p or WVGA video files in a continuous loop, using the included 4 GB microSD card. An integrated microphone provides the option of recording audio inside the vehicle, while the 2.3-in. colour display lets you review video right on the device. For a close-up view of vehicle or property damage, users can remove Dash Cam from the vehicle and take snapshots.
