Garmin Dash Cam

Dash Cam is a high-definition camera that mounts to any vehicle’s windscreen. It continuously records a wide-angle view of the road while driving. Once installed, the camera remains fully automated and it will start recording when the engine is turned on and stop when it is turned off. Dash Cam has incident detection that saves footage of collisions and incidents automatically. There are two models – Dash Cam 10 without GPS and Dash Cam 20 with GPS. The rechargeable battery allows a user to use the Snapshot feature to take still images, and even remove the Dash Cam from the vehicle to capture collision damage.

Priced from R2 599 for Dash Cam 10 and R2 999 for Dash Cam 20 from all electronic outlets.
