Screen is a nice resolution, not a retina display but is doesn't feel pixely at all.
The lane departure feature can be a bit over-sensitive however it has at least once genuinely beeped at me when I didn't notice I was drifting out, so I'm happy to have 100 false positives if it even gets it right once.
The forward proximity detection is actually quite good and does get it right when you are driving at a certain speed too close to the car in front, you can set the sensitivity from low / medium / high. I have it on medium.
Contrary to some saying it does not record, it does record all the time, but all video gets saved to the "Unsaved Video" folder in .mp4 format, each minute of recording is a separate file, you can't change the length of each video file however.
Some have said these cameras get rather warm but I haven't found that at all, yes it gets warmer when powered & charging but not really obvious.
The magnetic attachment system is also decent, quite a strong magnet, takes only seconds to pop-on at the start of a journey, the magnet is octagonal so it snaps into the correct orientation each time. Just make sure you spotlessly clean the area where you are sticking the magnet, e.g. using some light solvent.
You can download Garmin Dashcam Player for your home computer / laptop and if you plug in the dash cam with a USB lead, this software is easy to use to view the footage or take a still photograph (which is very high quality)
The video footage has a time, date, location and speed stamp along the bottom.
My only criticism is the voice recognition features such as "take a snapshot" gets randomly triggered by the car radio and some audio features like chime when theres a speed camera ahead gets annoying, but these features can be turned off.
Buying a dashcam is one of those purchases that costs a lot of money just to hope you will never need to use it. But if theres a collision with someone else, video footage never lies, especially if you drive safely and within the law - you've nothing to worry about.
Super simple to use.
Cable is long enough to reach around the top car plastic cover to a USB port.
Supplied microSD card is only 8GB, you should buy a 64GB one if you plan on driving longer and keeping your videos.
It gets quite hot while driving and recording.
-everything in the box, including very long 12v 'cigarette' lead, and another 5v USB lead.
Easy to install with supplied very strong sticky pads.
The unit is mounted via a magnetic clip (nice & easy), and powers on every time it recieves power and auto records in VERY GOOD resolution.
Note: there is NO micro Sd card included, so you will need to buy one seperatly in order to make it work; Sandisk Class 10 is the best.
Small and discreet, so can be left in the windscreen.
Live GPS and impact sensors (with auto protect recordings).
Many Alerts incluidng front colision, lane departure and Traffic cameras*;
*HOWEVER the wording 'FREE camera updates for life' is very ambigious, since via the update software always pushes to a £16.99 PER YEAR subscription? after several email(s) to Garmin customer services, this was not clairified?
Shame, as otherwise worthy of 5stars.
