Key features

This device is an automatic recorder that starts recording when you start the car and it stops when you stop the car. The recording happens in a looping format that overwrites the oldest content in the storage. All the video files are GPS tagged and this means you can present evidence where it is required. You can also save some critical files from being overwritten if you wish to, especially where the images have been captured through the G-sensor.

How is the image quality ?

Both the images and videos captured on Garmin Dash Cam 20 are of HD quality. The image resolution that you get is 1920x1080. All the images are stored in JPEG format. The videos are not recorded as single, large files but rather as smaller files of 255Mb.

You can also take out the device from the suction cup if you want to use it as a handheld camera. Just take the device out of the package and it can be installed within minutes.
