Garmin Dash Cam 55 review: A compact cure for common traffic hassles


Garmin's Dash Cam 55 is a good camera made better with added traffic and stoplight-snoozing alerts, plus addictive voice controls.

Excellent smart features including stoplight-snoozing alert ; Extremely compact ; Voice command is convenient and addictive

Runs warmer than we'd like

If there's a better single-channel (no rear camera) dash cam than the Garmin Dash Cam 55, you'd be hard-pressed to find it. Perhaps ThinkWare's more expensive models have an edge, but they're not this small and unobtrusive. The Dash Cam 55 is good...

Garmin 55 Review


The Garmin 55 is a good dash cam that produces great video in a fairly small and inconspicuous package. However, its interface isn't quite as intuitive as...

The is a good, but relatively overpriced camera. While we doubt anyone will be disappointed in its performance, you can get the same or better for much less money.

Garmin Dash Cam 55 review


Compact and simple to use, but with high-quality video, automatic incident detection, and even some driver safety features

Premium, compact design ; Easy to mount ; Good video quality

Menu system isn’t the best

Garmin Dash Cam 55 review: The smallest, smartest dash cam


A new breed of dashcam, the Garmin Dash Cam 55 combines great images quality with a selection of genuinely useful driver aids

Compact and unobtrusive ; Excellent image quality ; Effective driver aids

Smartphone app is limited ; Screen tough to read with polarising sunglasses

It’s easier to use and mount than the NextBase cameras, is smaller and less obtrusive and more clever, too. If you want the very best dash cam for sensible money, the Garmin Dash Cam 55 is the new king.

Garmin Dash Cam 55 Plus


If you need an independent witness when driving, you need a dash cam. Garmin's Dash Cam 55 Plus can also record when you're parked, will warn you of speed cameras and can even be controlled by your voice.

The Garmin Dash Cam 55 has been one of the most hotly anticipated dash cams of 2017. This is a slick, top-of-the-range model from a big brand name, complete with a big set of features and a price tag to match. Does it have what it takes to ace our...

Doesn’t do all the features it say it has


Brought this item as an upgrade from dash cam 45 but the extra features on the 55 don't work I've updated it and still no change as result I'm going back to the dash cam 45
