Garmin Dash Cam 20 review: It's compact, it's convenient, and it costs a little more


Garmin's Dash Cam 20 is the simplest and easiest-to-use GPS dash cam in our roundup, but it's pricey for the features.

Compact profile ; Integrated GPS ; Easy to use

Pricey for the features

The Garmin Dash Cam 20 is the simplest and easiest-to-use GPS dash cam in our roundup. Still, it's hard to justify the price for what you get.

Garmin Dash Cam 20 review


Garmin's latest product is packing GPS, but it's not a Nuvi or a navigator. It's the Garmin Dash Cam 20, a seemingly odd fit for the navigation giant, but not at all a bad first step in this direction.

The Garmin Dash Cam 20 unobtrusively records crisp HD video of the road ahead. A video buffer and G-sensor automatically capture the moments leading up to an accident and those immediately following. GPS location and speed data is embedded in the...

Garmin doesn't include any software to take advantage of the captured GPS data. The AVI video format requires third-party software to view. Out of the box, the device beeps loudly and often.

With a bit of tweaking, the Garmin Dash Cam 20 is a (mostly) silent witness that watches the road without attracting the driver's attention.

No sooner do I finish checking an in-car dash camera than another example of this product genre comes my way.

As a child, living near the northern seaside resort of Morecambe, I was sometimes taken to the fairground where a ride on the Dodgems would be a particular treat. Nowadays though, being involved in an incident of cars colliding is an entirely different...

Burned out quickly like a shooting star.


Mine stopped working in less than two months. Instead of sending it back, l decided to buy another one, this time with an extended warranty. I really do like it when it works.

Does all functions as advertised. Hands-off operation. Not distracting.

Short lifetime of less than two months.

Good Dash Cam


I have used a dash cam for several years. I have recorded hitting deer & almost hitting other wild life. The picture is as good as my other cameras. What I like about this Garmin is the GPS feature. It gives you the location & speed you are doing. It...
