Garmin Dash Cam Goes Small

| March 20, 2017

Dash Cam 45

Garmin has gone small with its dash cam.  

The new Dash Cam 45 and Dash Cam 55 now feature new standalone driving recorders with a uniquely small and unobtrusive hardware design — along with advanced driver awareness alerts.

Here’s what’s new: the new cameras offer high-quality recording with automatic incident detection (G-sensor) to save footage on impact, while also adding GPS capabilities for detailed time and location data.

Advanced driver alerts such as forward collision and lane departure warnings are integrated in both new dash cam models to help prevent drivers from either driving too close to the vehicle ahead or drifting off-road.

Now with the inclusion of new voice controls, drivers can start and stop audio recordings and more through voice commands to help keep their hands on the wheel and focused on the drive.

According to Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales, “With the Dash Cam 45 and 55, customers can do more than just record a drive. Now they can take advantage of advanced driver alerts through a discreet dash camera that seamlessly blends into a vehicle without obstructing a driver’s line of sight.”

The Dash Cam 55 provides high quality video captured in 1440p, 1080p, or 720p with a 3.7 megapixel camera while the Dash Cam 45 captures 1080p or 720p with a 2.1 megapixel camera. Both models project fields of view with a 2.0-inch LCD display screen.

The addition of Sensory TrulyHandsfree™ voice control2 allows users to speak straightforward commands to the dash cam, such as “OK Garmin, save video,” and “OK Garmin, take a picture,” or even “OK Garmin, start Travelapse™,” to activate the video capture feature that compresses hours of driving footage into minutes of highlights.

In addition to forward collision and lane departure warnings1 that can help drivers avoid incidents, the new dash cams also provide red light and speed camera warnings.  What’s more, the models are outfitted for the very first time with the useful “Go” alert – a helpful camera-assisted feature that notifies distracted drivers when traffic ahead of their vehicle begins to move.
