Garmin Dash Cam can be your eyewitness on the road

garmindash3Garmin is a name we’re used to seeing in our cars on GPS systems but it now has another in-car product – the High Definition Dash Cam.

The Garmin Dash Cam continuously records a wide-angle view of the road while you’re driving and can automatically detect an incident with an integrated gravity sensor.

These incidents could include heavy braking or a collision when the device will save the relevant video file with a time stamp and location information so users can see exact when and where the event took place.

Other information like direction of travel, longitude, latitude and speed is also recorded to give driver a complete record of an incident.

An integrated microphone also gives drivers the added option of recording audio inside the vehicle.

Like an actual eyewitness, the Dash Cam’s information can be useful for accident and insurance claims and even in court if another party is disputing your version events.

The Garman Dash Cam can record full high definition 1080p, in high definition 720p or WQGA in a continuous loop and will only save video to the included 4GB micro SD memory card when it detects an incident.

Garmin’s Dash Cam has a 2.3-inch colour display to make it easier for the driver to position the camera inside their car as well as providing a way to quickly review video on the device.

There will be two versions of the Garmin Dash Cam when it is released in March -the Garmin Dash Cam 10 (without GPS) and the Garmin Dash 20 (with GPS).

Pricing will be announced closer to the release date.
