GARMIN DASH CAM™ 56
The compact, discreet GPS-enabled Garmin Dash Cam™ 56 provides a wide 140-degree field of view. It clearly captures important details in high-quality 1440 HD video — in all light conditions — if an incident occurs. It also provides advanced driver alerts1, including forward collision, lane departure and a “Go” alert to enhance driver awareness. Get alerts for red light camera and speed camera2 location alerts that can be updated as often as you like via Garmin Express. Say “OK, Garmin” to start/stop audio recording, take a still picture or start/stop the Travelapse™ video capture feature. Dash Cam Auto Sync allows you to play back “picture-in-picture” video captured from up to 4 dash cams in use at the same time, so you can see multiple points of view with the Garmin Drive app if an incident happens. Parking mode monitors your car’s surroundings while your car is parked and the engine is not running. It automatically begins recording if and when motion is detected. (Requires Garmin parking mode cable, sold separately; professional installation recommended.)
