    Good Dash Cam But Has Some Issues

    This Is A Good Dash Cam And Takes Decent Quality Photos And Videos However The Virb App To Connect To Your Phone Or Tablet Is Nearly Useless Extremely Slow When It Works But Most Of The Time Freezes Leaving The Only Option To Transfer Vids And Pics With A PC. Also The Camera Will Get Extremely Hot And Even Sometimes Shut Down..... I Have Returned This Dash Cam 45 And Purchased The Dash Cam 55 And No Longer Have Any Of The Problems Described Above.

    Very good quality recording. Would suggest going to next model up for voice control however. Can be a long reach to trigger save depending on where your camera is mounted.

    It connected easily, records consistently, and I ordered more mounts for other cars. The only problem is the glue used to affix the magnet on the camera - and the dash pillow mount - it gets soft in the heat, so you cannot leave the camera on the pillow mount on the dash in heat or sun. Surprised they didn't use silicon with heat resistance.

    Very easy to install and set up, with an improved magnetic windshield attachment system. Easy to operate if you pay attention to the instructions, but there are some options so pay attention. Does nice time-lapse videos too.

    I have only had the camera for 2 or 3 weeks, but am happy with it so far. I purchased a larger memory card as the included one is only 8GB if I remember correctly. I put the sd card included in my Garmin GPS I use in the truck, so no waste now. I have looked at a few of the early recordings, and I'm pleased. They are clear recordings that are easy to view and show good detail. The alerts for traffic cameras, lane assist, and vehicle accident detection are useful and can be adjusted in the settings if personally found to be annoying. Best Buy gave me a price adjustment of $30 for the Black Friday sales. I do like Best Buy service as they are very accomodating to do the right thing. All around I'm very happy.

    I bought this camera as a beginner dash cam thinking the quality was going to be just okay but it is excellent quality. Downloading videos is super easy. Just use the usb cord given to you and you can download right from the Garmin icon on your desktop and take which part of the trip you want since each trip is broken down into smaller files. Super easy to use

    This is my third Garmin Dash Cam. Ease of set up, operation. video quality and the price make this a great choice for a dash cam. The Garmin 55, which I also have is even better because of hands-free voice control capability

    Good HD quality, excellent night vision. small and doesn't obstruct view. BUT, the charger cord is upside down which makes it weird to look at, additionally, my camera stopped providing audible signals when I left lane or traffic started moving and I can not make it chirp again, may be a faulty device? this happened in Month # 8

      The power cable is designed to be routed up and out of sight around the windshield, tucked it into the gap between the windshield and the trim. You may also want to connect the dash cam to a computer to update the software using the Garmin Express program. Garmin.com/express Garmin

    This is the second one of the identical model I bought recently. Set up was easy and online chat helped immediately me resolve a language issue. The cam has a limited angle range:but the clarity of the pics/video are very good and were easy to transfer to my computer/iphone. I am a satisfied customer.

    It is a good camera with a quality recording. The only problem so far is the online user manual. It is very limited and does not explain quite a few things. Disappointed in the manual.

    Got this dash cam to use on a long road trip and because I'd wanted one in case of accident or bogus traffic ticket. The Garmin 45 exceeds expectations. Great HD video, very wide angle viewing and embedded date/time/location and speed data with continuous audio recording. Great buy for the money.

    This device is small enough that it won't distract you and can't be seen by others right away. Although its small, the screen is very clear and the features behind it are robust. I can save video and photos and it has wifi to connect with your phone for viewing Via an app. I am really impressed with is performance

    What a wonderful device to have in your vehicle, the video is great and now it can also record audio. I recently used it as a rear viewing camera and it came in very handy during a parking lot accident when another driver backed up into me and hit me. The video is very compelling. Get 2 of them!
