Garmin® Launches High-Definition Dash Cam with Automatic Incident Detection

Garmin® International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd.
(NASDAQ:GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today
announced Garmin Dash Cam™, a high-definition camera that mounts to any
vehicles’ windshield. Dash Cam continuously records a wide-angle view of
the road while driving. Once installed, the camera is fully automated:
It starts recording when the engine is turned on and stops when it is
turned off1. The integrated gravity sensor (G-Sensor)
automatically detects incidents, such as braking or a collision, and
saves the relevant video files. Dash Cam is available with and without
GPS. The GPS receiver time-stamps and geo-tags all footage, so users can
view exactly where and when events occurred. Garmin Dash Cam will be
showcased in the Garmin booth (South Hall 4 #35812) at this year’s CES.

“Garmin Dash Cam is like a personal eyewitness that never misses an
incident and provides proof of what happens on the road,” said Dan
Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “It is fully automated
and gives drivers peace of mind knowing any events that might occur will
be captured. Features such as an internal microphone and GPS add
valuable context to the video files.”

Dash Cam records 1080p, 720p or WVGA video files in a continuous loop,
using the included 4 GB microSD™ card. To add more memory, users can add
a larger microSD card (up to 32 GB). When an incident – like hard
braking or a collision – is detected by the built-in G-Sensor, Dash Cam
knows to save the current, last and next recordings, preserving a
complete record of the event. All footage is stamped with time and
location2, so drivers know exactly when and where events
occurred, including latitude, longitude, date, time, speed and direction
of travel. The integrated microphone provides the option of recording
audio inside the vehicle.

The 2.3-inch color display makes it easy to position the camera in the
car and review video right on the device. Dash Cam is easy to install
using the included suction cup mount for the windshield as well as a
vehicle power cable. For a close-up view of vehicle or property damage,
users can remove Dash Cam from the vehicle and take snapshots.

Garmin Dash
Cam 10
(without GPS) has a suggested retail price of $219.99 and Dash
Cam 20
(with GPS) has a suggested retail price of $249.99. Both
cameras are expected to become available in February 2014.

Garmin Dash Cam is the latest from Garmin’s consumer automotive segment,
the leading worldwide provider of mobile navigation solutions for
automobiles, motorcycles and trucks. Garmin’s user-friendly personal
navigation devices and apps have innovative features that provide time-
and fuel-saving benefits to meet the demands of everyday driving.
