The Garmin Dash Cam 65W is one of those dashboard cameras that can you can speak to. You don’t need to control it with your hands, voice commands can do that and leave your hands to focus on driving. The added luxury makes this unit much better than other options. And that is not all, you also get Wi-Fi, GPS and driver awareness alerts.
As far as basic dash cam functions go, the 65W records videos in full HD over a stunningly wide field of view. It has a G-sensor for detecting impacts and saving accident-related videos. Speaking of saving videos, the maximum supported capacity is 128GB; and while the dash cam records footage in a single loop, that size is enough for virtually all your driving needs. Below are more specific features of the Garmin Dash Cam 65W.
Full HD footage
The dash cam records 1080P videos in all lighting conditions, including the accompanying audio. You can view real-time or play back footage on the 2-inch LCD display. There’s also the option of transferring the files to a computer and reviewing them using the Garmin Dash CamPlayer.
You can start or stop video recording, take still images, save files and start or stop the Travelapse feature with voice commands. Travelapse allows you to take video or photo frames at set distance intervals. You can also use it to shorten hours of a journey into a few minute clip for sharing with friends or on social media platforms.
Super wide field of view
This dash cam has a viewing angle of 180 degrees. The broad view ensures that you don’t miss any important event, sign or license plate in over four lanes of the road, including cross traffic.
Built-in GPS, Wi-Fi and G-sensor
In addition to voice control, the Garmin 65W has GPS, Wi-Fi and G-sensor modules for enhanced functionality. The GPS will record your location, speed, direction, date and time. Wi-Fi makes it possible to share clips and photos online while the G-sensor detects impacts/accidents and locks footage for reference.
Another handy feature of the Garmin Dash Cam 65W is its notifications. It will give you warnings upon detecting a possible forward collision, lane departure, red lights and speed cameras. In short, this dash cam makes driving a lot easier.
- Long battery life
- Compact and discreet. The total size of the dash cam is 1.6 x 0.8 x 2.2 inches and the weight is 3.52 ounces.

- Supports up to 128GB of microSD storage
- Offers high-end features at an affordable price

While the safety alerts of the Garmin Dash Cam 65W are very helpful to any driver, they can be really frustrating. They are alert tones, not voice notifications.
The dash cam also records videos in a single loop. It doesn’t break down the clip into smaller loops that can make file management easier. That said, it supports a whopping 128GB, which is more that you will need even for long journeys.
All in all, the dash cam is a solid unit that makes driving fun and easier. With a little more budget you can add its parking mode kit and allow the dash cam to monitor your vehicle 24/7.
