Garmin Dash Cam 35 with HD Video and GPS
If you’re driving and get caught in an accident, it’s easy to point fingers on whose fault the accident is. But without a video record, it can be hard to prove it to law enforcement and your insurance company. Enter Garmin’s Dash Cam 35, which takes video in HD quality and stores it so that you can send it to the appropriate authorities, potentially saving you money and trouble.
Though it doesn’t help you with directions, the dash cam’s built-in GPS records latitude, longitude, speed, and direction of travel, and data is also stamped with date and time to ensure an accurate record of where and when something happened.
You can take video through the wide-angle lens in 720p or 1080p HD, even in low-light or overly bright conditions, with video saved to the included microSD card (or your own microSD card, up to 64GB) in a continuous loop. In case of an accident, the built-in G-sensor saves the moments before, during, and after the accident, ensuring that high-quality video can be seen later.
Stay Aware of Surroundings
Though driving requires your full attention, it’s easy to get distracted. Fortunately, this dash cam has collision warnings and can also warn you that red-light cameras and speed cameras are nearby, helping you drive safer and avoid costly tickets. (A subscription may be required for the latter warnings.)

“Ideas can come from anybody,” notes Min Kao. While sitting around a shabby card table with fellow engineer Gary Burrell, the two formed the navigation company Garmin—a fusion of their first names—in 1989. Its goal was to take highly technical GPS technology and transform it into a product for the everyday consumer. These days, Garmin continues to hone their state-of-the-art navigation technology for cars, planes, boats, and wealthy meteors.
