Garmin intros helpful driver alerts to its Dash Cam line-up : Garmin recently introduced the new Dash Cam 30 and Dash Cam 35. Representing the next generation of the Garmin Dash Cam, these two high-definition standalone driving recorders easily mount to a windshield and record footage in a continuous loop. Garmin Dash Cam starts recording when the vehicle is turned on and stops when it is turned off, serving as a driver’s true eyewitness on the road. The Incident Detection (G-sensor) automatically saves video footage on impact. New driver alerts allows the Garmin Dash Camera to not only record the drive ahead, but also offer helpful alerts that encourage safer driving behavior for customers.
GPS-enabled Dash Cam 35
Helpful driver alerts include Forward Collision Warnings, which provide alerts to users when they are driving too closely to the vehicle ahead. Furthermore, drivers have the advantage of knowing where red light or speed cameras are placed with the red light and speed camera warning alert. Driver alerts are available only on the Dash Cam 35 model. Garmin Dash Cam models are available with and without GPS. The GPS-enabled Dash Cam 35 allows the camera to label footage with date, time, latitude, longitude and speed so that customers know exactly when and where events take place. The date and time may be manually set on Dash Cam 30.
