Garmin announces Dash Cam 65W with a 180-degree field of view

Garmin announced the Dash Cam 65W, its newest dash cam model capable of capturing an 180-wide-angle field of view to expand the scope of its high-quality 1080p video recording capability. The increased field of view allows drivers to capture even more details from the vehicle’s surroundings such as traffic congestions, road construction and more. The Dash Cam 65W’s wide angle enhances the way video is captured, shared and viewed. Sleek and compact, the Dash Cam 65W boasts a number of established features found across the Garmin Dash Cam series, including voice control, advanced driver awareness features like red light and speed camera alerts, and forward collision and lane departure warnings to encourage safer driving. A camera-assisted sensor known as the “Go” alert is also built into the Dash Cam 65W to notify drivers when traffic ahead of their vehicle begins to move.

As soon as the Dash Cam 65W is plugged in, the device automatically begins to record high quality eyewitness video footage in 1080p, or 720p with a 2.0-inch LCD display screen and a 2.1 megapixel camera. The automatic incident detection (G-sensor) allows the Dash Cam 65W to save footage on impact, while also adding GPS capabilities for detailed time and location data. The dash cam also offers a parking mode option (cable sold separately) that feeds constant power to the device when the vehicle is parked and turned off, and automatically begins recording surroundings when motion is detected.
