The driving camera specialists have designed a brand new gadget that will help you see clearly and could just be a game changer for caravan and motorhome owners as they clock up the miles on tour come 2020.
Driving with a large caravan attached to the back of you can sometimes present some tricky situations. In most of these situations it is actually non carvan users who are to blame as they simply do not know how to drive with caravans near them. So, having a camera that can capture a wider view in the event of an incident is worth its weight in gold.
On the 6th of January Garmin announced their Dash Cam Tandem which is their first ever dual lense dash cam 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 Kapten 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."
Some caravan users I have spoken two have often asked about dash cams, referencing cameras and other tech, and the main question has been do we have too much tech on board to make driving easy?
Making driving easy can be both good and bad. Good because making life easy is, well, easy. But on the flip side to that we are starting to lean a lot of technology which could land us in hot water when these gadgets stop working.
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 NightGloÔ 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.
