    Great Dash Camera

    Well designed and low-key. Easy to set up. Info shown on playback video includes date, time, GPS location (accurate longitude and latitude), and driving speed; users can choose which data to be included. It also records audio, again users can choose to turn it on or off. Pictures can be taken anytime during video recording, and it comes with a function of creating time-lapse videos. Picture quality is 1080P, good enough for personal use. Have been using it for about 10 trips so far, the average memory card usage is 4.3 GB per hour of recording. It comes with a 8-GB memory card, need to replace it with 32- or 64-GB cards for longer trips. It can accept up to 64 GB micro SD card. Data transfer to computer via cable is easy, or users can use its App to download saved videos to smart phones. The camera itself sends out Wifi signals, and the signal strength is displayed on screen as you drive around. Overall, it is a great dash camera for personal use.

    Easy set up , way to use app to link footage to your phone can easily share videos with friends . The only thing I wish the hard wire cables would come with the camera so you can take advantage of the park assist can eat h over your vehicle when it's parked . But all in all great camera for the price .

    I like how small this dashcam is and how easy it is to use. I also got the garmin direct connect wire to avoid having the cord hang to plug it in. I do find the some of the warning beeps annoying but the recording quality is great and being able to see the videos on my phone is awesome.

    Captures Good quality videos, does its job and stays out of my view. I didn't buy this with very high expectations and I am satisfied with its performance. The alerts for lane detection and moving traffic are gimmicky, my car does a better job so I don't care much about those features, but it could do better.

    It has everything that the newer models have and is really easy to use. It has lain assistant and forward collision alerts and records in great quality. The iOS app is buggy and slow but it's ok

    Easy Video Access, Clear Images

    The video output on this dash cam is really nice and super easy to access through the app. My only complaint would have to be a Garmin-specific vehicle power cable is needed to properly charge the camera. My car only has two power ports, with the front port being reserved for USB charging adapters, so this greatly restricts my options for wiring this up in my car.

    After doing research and looking at various products, I decided to purchase this one because of the Garmin reputation. The record and playback features are very good. Only issue we are having is mounting it.

    I wanted a good, simple dash cam without mapping, shopping, or internet capabilities. The app syncs well on my iPhone 8, and you can also plug the camera into a computer for retrieval of photos or video. I did replace the microSD card with a 64gB card, but otherwise, very happy with this garmin product.

    Bought the dash cam for mainly protection in case of an accident but the video quality is good. It has helped out others in need as well as one time a car got into a hit and run and my camera caught the whole incident. It has an app as well that you can download to manage videos.

    Very easy to set up despite no written directions, only pictures. The camera is easy to use and attaches via sticky substance and magnets. The transfer of video is made easy and quick using the Garmin app and the quality of video, sound and resolution is very clear and nice.

    Great aid for 80 year old smartcar awareness

    Not only does the dash cam record HD video and audio, but also provide monitoring to identify key situations to promote driver awareness. 1) radar detector 2) preceding car approaching quickly 3) passing over solid lines on road when over certain speed and 4) car ahead taking off and not accelerating at green light. All these situations are a big help to my father remaining alert when driving while also keeping clear record of his travels; well worth the higher grade product pricing.

    I purchased this camera to supplement my Cobra dash cam in the event one of them fails. I absolutely love the small size. Really easy and fun to share my videos to my iPhone and the tube now!

    Very small and discrete, even people in my car can't tell it's there unless they hear one of the 3 warnings go off (which are life-savers). The phone app is very intuitive and makes it easy to save pictures and videos when needed. All round great product.

    Great little product does what it was designed to do "records". Detaches easily when needed. Optional extras are ok too however they don't work like factory warning systems do.

    I am very impressed with the HD video quality of this dash camera, however the battery life is not great. Only lasts a few hours before it needs to be charged again. Product was returned because it was more of a charging hassle than it was worth.

    Gps features are a plus. Don't expect to be able to actually read them real time however. Passenger could however.
