Garmin launched its first dual-lens Dash Cam with a 180-degree field of view each. This design allows the Garmin Dash Cam Tandem to record everything that happens not only in front of the camera but interior-footage too.
“The Dash Cam Tandem offers remarkably clear nighttime recordings inside the car unlike any other dash camera on the market today,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “With rideshare services like Uber and Lyft on the rise as well as unforeseen altercations happening inside vehicles, it makes great sense for these drivers to depend on a high-quality dash camera that records not only what’s happening on the road, but also what’s going on inside their vehicles at all times.”
The 1440p front camera supports HDR, and the internal camera uses exclusive Garmin NightGlo technology, which allows you to shoot all the actions of the driver and passenger even in the dark.
In surveillance mode, the Garmin dashboard device automatically detects movement in the frame and starts recording, even when the car is parked and turned off.
GPS is integrated into the Garmin DashCam, so the recording is done by reference to the location. A microSD card is used as removable media.
Among other features – voice control, which allows you to save videos or photos, turn on and off the sound without the help of hands.
You can use your smartphone and the Garmin Drive mobile app to view recordings. If one recorder is not enough, the auto-synchronization function will help, which gives the user the ability to control up to four Garmin dashboard cameras from one application.
