Garmin Mini Dash Cam is a tiny car key-sized dash camera that mounts discreetly behind the rearview mirror and automatically records and saves video of incidents. It features a wide 140-degree lens that records 1080p video with Garmin Clarity HDR optics for crisp detail both day and night. The dash cam also offers voice control, allowing users to use spoken commands to save video, start/stop audio recording, take still pictures, and more.
One of the standout features of the Garmin Mini Dash Cam is the ability to access the camera remotely for Live View monitoring when you’re away from your parked car. This requires constant power and an active connection with Wi-Fi technology, and you can access it via the Garmin Drive app on your compatible smartphone. The Parking Guard feature is also available, which monitors activity around your parked vehicle and alerts you if an incident is detected.
The dash cam is designed to withstand harsh vehicle environments, including direct sunlight and hot temperatures, and includes a dual USB charger, giving drivers an extra USB charging port.
Garmin dash cam is compatible with up to a 512 GB microSD card, which must be class 10 or faster. Besides streaming footage to your phone, you can also save it for free on their cloud storage. No subscription is required for using the cloud storage (“vault”), but it holds uploaded videos for 24 hours.
Overall, the Garmin Mini Dash Cam is a reliable and discreet way to monitor your vehicle while on the road and when parked. With features like voice control, remote access, and the Parking Guard feature, it provides drivers with added peace of mind and protection.
