With a camcorder attached to your windshield, you have footage of any event that occurs during your drive which can be used as an evidence for any insurance claim or other purposes.

In a place where the law enforcement is potentially unscrupulous, such device offers exceptional value. A typical camcorder can do the job, but that is not an ideal device.

You need a purpose-built recorder called Dashboard Camera. Garmin, popularly known for its range of GPS devices for cars and sport enthusiasts, has recently announced the release of two new dashboard cameras: the Dash Cam 30 and 35. Both have the capabilities of recording high-definition footage with plenty of automation features.

Garmin Dash Cam 30

The biggest difference between a typical camcorder and dashboard camera is the way they handle footage. Dashboard camera records and stores footage in a continuous loop, so there is no need to manually delete old footage every time a new one is created.

Garmin Dash Cam 30 features a wide-angle lens that produces a maximum video resolution of 1080p. You can also use its two lower resolutions including 720p or WVGA. It has a 1.4-inch LCD display and comes with a 4GB capacity MicroSD card. The memory card slot accepts any Class 4 microSD with a maximum capacity of 64GB.

When connected to your vehicle power source, Garmin Dash Cam 30 can automatically start recording as you turn on the vehicle and pause recording when you stop. It is packaged with adhesive mount and vehicle power cable as well.

One of the most interesting features is Incident Detection or G-sensor. In case an incident occurs, such as road accident, collision, or any unfortunate event, the camera automatically detects it and stores the current video to the memory card. It preserves the saved footage, so the next recording will not overwrite it.

There is also a snapshot feature, allowing you to easily remove Dash Cam 30 from the windshield and capture photograph of vehicle damage or any relevant pictures.

You can view saved videos and images directly on its screen or use the company’s Dash Cam Player software compatible with PC and Mac with which you can view and organize footage on computer. This software if provided free of charge by Garmin.

Garmin Dash Cam 35

The more sophisticated Dash Cam 35 features three additional advantages including bigger screen, GPS functionality, and driver awareness. The LCD screen is 3.0-inch for better viewing experience.

More than that, Garmin Dash Cam 35 is GPS-enabled, so footage is automatically stamped with complete information of time, date, speed, longitude, and latitude.

Another big difference is driver alerts system. It consists of two different features including Forward Collision and Speed Cameras Warning. The former produces alerts to notify drivers if they are driving too close to the vehicle ahead, while the latter gives alerts for upcoming red lights and speed cameras.

In terms of memory capacity, maximum video resolution, and snapshot functionality, both Dash Cams 30 and 35 are similar to each other. Each is even packaged with the same 4GB capacity microSD and supports the same maximum capacity. You can also use the same software to organize and view footage on PC or Mac.
