This is the dash cam to beat
Garmin’s Dash Cam offers high quality video and a really compact design. It’s arguably the last point that stands as the device’s most compelling feature. The Dash Cam 55 is tiny. It’s about the size of a matchbox – albeit a matchbox with a lens that protrudes by about 1.5cm.
The mounting mechanism is also small. A metal disc about the size of a 20p piece sticks to your windscreen; this connects magnetically to a mounting arm attached to the camera itself with a ball-and-socket joint. You can leave the camera in place when you park up, or pull it from the mount and stow it in your glovebox or pop it in a pocket.
Extra convenience comes from the internal battery, negating the need to plug the camera into your lighter socket. However, it’s rated at just 30 minutes, so for longer journeys you’ll want to plug the camera in anyway.
