Garmin Dash Cam 20


Garmin's latest product is packing GPS, but it's not a Nuvi or a navigator. It's the Garmin Dash Cam 20, a seemingly odd fit for the navigation giant, but not at all a bad first step in this direction.

The Garmin Dash Cam 20 unobtrusively records crisp HD video of the road ahead. A video buffer and G-sensor automatically capture the moments leading up to an accident and those immediately following. GPS location and speed data is embedded in the...

Garmin doesn't include any software to take advantage of the captured GPS data. The AVI video format requires third-party software to view. Out of the box, the device beeps loudly and often.

With a bit of tweaking, the Garmin Dash Cam 20 is a (mostly) silent witness that watches the road without attracting the driver's attention.

Simple and awesome


Great dash cam. Simple to use and download video to computer. It's interesting to watch video of near-miss accidents. It's nice to have a "witness" looking out for you with all the crazy driver on the road.

I'm a truck driver doing 11hr shift so I wanted to record my whole shift without overlapping , with a 32GB card you can do it with the camera set to 720p which records about 17.5hrs it's more then enough, on the 1080p mode I can only get 6.5hrs . Well...
