Garmin International Inc, a unit of Garmin Ltd (NASDAQ:GRMN), is offering Garmin Dash Cam, a high-definition camera that mounts to any vehicle’s windshield.
Dash Cam 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. The 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 GPS receiver time-stamps and geo-tags all footage, so users can view exactly where and when events occurred. This camera records 1080p, 720p, or WVGA video files in a continuous loop, using the included 4 GB microSD card. To add more memory, users can add a larger microSD card (up to 32 GB). When an incident—such as hard braking or a collision—is detected by the built-in G-Sensor, Dash Cam knows to save the current, last, and next recordings, preserving a complete record of the event. All footage is stamped with time and location, so drivers know exactly when and where events occurred, including latitude, longitude, date, time, speed, and direction of travel. The integrated microphone provides the option of recording audio inside the vehicle. The 2.3-inch color display makes it easy to position the camera in a vehicle and review video right on the device. Dash Cam is easy to install using the included suction cup mount for the windshield as well as a vehicle power cable. For a close-up view of vehicle or property damage, users can remove Dash Cam from the vehicle and take snapshots. Garmin Dash Cam 10 (without GPS) and Dash Cam 20 (with GPS) are expected to become available in February 2014. For more information, access or phone 913-397-8200.
