OLATHE, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today announced the Garmin Dash Cam™ Tandem, its first dual-lens dash camera that offers drivers complete video coverage of their surroundings thanks to two 180-degree field of view lenses that record in tandem day and night. The dash cam’s high-definition 1440p front-facing camera lens with Garmin Clarity™ HDR can capture crisp footage showing critical vehicle details, while the interior lens with night vision introduces Garmin’s exclusive NightGlo™ technology to record all driver and passenger interaction, even in the dark.
“The Dash Cam Tandem offers remarkably clear nighttime recordings inside the car unlike any other dash camera on the market today,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “With rideshare services like Uber and Lyft on the rise as well as unforeseen altercations happening inside vehicles, it makes great sense for these drivers to depend on a high-quality dash camera that records not only what’s happening on the road, but also what’s going on inside their vehicles at all times.”
Thanks to the new lenses on each side of the device, the Dash Cam Tandem can record a driver’s overall surroundings — whether it’s traffic on the road or activity inside the cabin — for complete dash cam coverage. What’s more, the interior lens features Garmin’s all-new NightGlo™ technology to record high-quality night vision footage that goes as far as identifying facial details from backseat passengers. For added convenience, the Dash Cam Tandem includes a charger with an extra USB port to ensure drivers stay connected throughout their ride.
With the Garmin Drive™ app1, drivers can use their phones to easily view synchronized recordings from inside and outside the vehicle at the exact same time. If one Dash Cam Tandem is not enough, Garmin offers Dash Cam Auto Sync which allows users to control up to four Garmin dash cams2 mounted from multiple viewpoints — rear-window or blind-spots — and can synchronize every video file for easy playback on a driver’s smartphone through the Garmin Drive app.
Designed with ease-of-use in mind, the discreet and pocket-sized Dash Cam Tandem is as intuitive as it is practical. As soon as it’s plugged in to a vehicle power source, it begins recording, and can continue capturing video when the driver is not inside the vehicle. The parking surveillance mode option3 provides peace of mind to dash cam drivers if anyone attempts to tamper with their vehicle while they are away. And the front- and interior-facing lenses can automatically detect and record motion even when the car is parked and turned off.
The Dash Cam Tandem features a slew of valuable features including voice control4 options that allow drivers to save videos or pictures and start and stop audio inside the vehicle – all hands free. With built-in GPS, it automatically pinpoints the exact location of a vehicle to document when and where events occur. The Dash Cam Tandem also is equipped with an automatic incident detection sensor to preserve activity before and after an incident takes place. Additionally, the dash cam can operate in hot environments up to 176-degrees Fahrenheit and includes a replaceable microSD™ card in the box for immediate use.
Available now, the Garmin Dash Cam Tandem has a suggested retail price of $299.99. To learn more, visit garmin.com/dashcam.
