VIDEO: Garmin 10 Dash Cam Review


Is the old saying “you get what you pay for” true? It appears so with the Garmin 10. The dash camera provides a crisp, clear picture, even while recording at night.   The Garmin 10 dash cam retails for $189.99 and features:

HD standalone driving recorder with 2.3-inch LCD display
Snapshot feature allows you to take still images, even remove from vehicle, to capture collision damage
Integrated microphone records the sounds inside your vehicle
Incident Detection (G-Sensor) automatically saves footage of collisions and incidents

From Garmin:

Garmin Dash Cam is an easy-to-use high-definition driving recorder with 2.3-inch LCD display. It records both audio and video, and allows you to set the date and time to pinpoint when events occurred. Mount the camera to your windshield and record your drive in 1080p, 720p or WVGA. Dash Cam records in a continuous loop, using the included 4 GB microSD™ card. To add more memory, add a larger microSD card (accepts up to 32 GB, sold separately. Class 10 required). Play back the footage on the LCD display or review later on your computer.

The camera has a wide-angle lens that captures the entire road. Its integrated microphone gives you the option of recording audio inside the vehicle.

Aime B. says, “People often see the higher end dash cam, the ones that are $200 and above. They wonder what are they getting for their investment. The answer is convenience. The Garmin 10 has a feature that will save 4 minutes prior to the event. For example, you see a bear crossing the road and you want to show that event, you press on the event save button and it will save the file, and the DVR won’t record over it.”
