Garmin has all but ignored my emails about their faulty product. Unless you want to be manually turning on this thing every few feet, I would avoid. The USB-Micro attachment point on the camera isn't quite up to the task of a few weeks of vibrations.
A word about the memory card: DO NOT skimp on quality. In fact, I learned that some cards are not good enough. I purchased a Transcend 32GB High Endurance card. Basic low-end cards will fail.
The resolution upon playback is highly detailed and it sees well at night. The features that sets this Garmin apart from the "imported" cams are unique. It uses voice commands - after saying "Okay Garmin" it allows the user to take a picture, save a video, etc. When sitting at a light or in traffic, once the traffic starts moving, it signals me to look forward - which really comes in handy at times when I'm distracted by my dog or my phone. If I veer from my lane, another warning sounds. But the warning that I disabled is the collision avoidance. I found it annoying - especially in 'stop and go' traffic.
After setting the date and time, I can also choose whether (or not) to have the speed stamped on the video. I'm not a cop, so I chose to turn the speed off. I find the quality of the sound to be quite good as well. There are four (recording) video resolutions to choose from as well. I find the menu navigation to be intuitive and compared to other dash cams, it's fairly easy.
Since I have a Garmin GPS that has lifetime alerts, the red light camera alerts also show up on the dashcam. This is convenient if my GPS happens to be off.
A minor gripe is that the lens has a copper-colored ring around it which negates any chance for stealth factor. If it was all black, it would be a bit harder to notice through the windshield. I learned that there is no option for any kind of add-on ND filter.
The computer interface is hit & miss I'm afraid. Once I downloaded the app and linked my dashcam to my laptop, navigation was simple BUT it doesn't save the files in 1, 2 or 3 minute chunks. Let's say you park and leave the cam on. When you view the footage, it could be two and a half hours or more and you'll have to do some creative editing. They should allow us to save footage in 1-3 minute increments to make things easier. So from the time you start recording until you turn the cam off, it will force you to download huge time-consuming files. This needs to be addressed in the software on the computer side.
A nice feature (for older vehicles) is the ability to purchase a wireless rear camera for backing up. It takes a bit to set it up and adjust the lane markers, but once it's set, it makes it easier to park and avoid hitting things or people. I just didn't want to run a wire all the way from the back of my SUV. The image can get slightly grainy, but it sure beats hitting another vehicle or stationary object.
If you'd like to record footage while your car is parked, buy a "Power Magic Pro." It will ensure you do not drain your battery.
While this dashcam is more expensive than most, the features and conveniences make it worth the price of admission. I feel secure in the fact that it's backed by an American company with American tech support. Oh and I also purchased a "Square Trade" extended warranty to really be sure.
Overheating: From what I have read, this unit had a problem working in warmer climates. I also read that a firmware upgrade solved the issue.

After I got out, at one point I mentioned I had a dash cam.
I later checked the dash cam and it had not recorded the accident in events - somehow it had missed the fact I had received a jolt from behind. So I did not have the footage.
con la camara viene incluida una tarjeta micro SD de 8GB pero apenas alcanza para grabar poco mas de hora y media, asi que sera necesario adquirir una de 64GB
no me gusto mucho el aro color cobre ya que lo que se pretende es que se vea lo menos posible pero nada que un plumon permanente de color negro no solucione, la coloque entre el parabrisas y el espejo retrovisor y se oculta perfectamente, el cable para conectar al ancendedor es bastante largo y lo puedes ocultar facilmente entre el techo, pilar A y tablero hasta llegar al tomacorriente
creo que seria conveniente que ya por el precio incluyeran el cable de estacionamiento y la memoria de 64GB
si surge algo nuevo lo comentare
actualizacion 25 mayo 2018
la camara dejo de cargar la bateria y en cuanto se corta la corriente del auto la camara de apaga en menos de 3 segundos, tendre que llamar a soporte tecnico de garmin para ver que procede y ojala entre en garantia
cabe aclarar que funcionan todas las caracteristicas, el unico problema es la bateria
Actualización 25 agosto 2018
La cámara dejo de grabar la pantalla solo muestra la mitad negro y la otra mitad morada, y graba igual en la tarjeta de memoria
El soporte de Garmin no responde
Actualización enero 2019
El soporte tecnico de Garmin respondió aproximadamente en septiembre, me pidieron fotos del daño que tenia la cámara, la regrese y al cabo de unos 8 días me dieron una totalmente nueva la cual esta funcionando al día de hoy sin problema, al parecer mi primer cámara había salido mal de fabrica
I am not sure why some of the reviews says it overheats? It’s very reliable, I have not had any problem with it at all and the weather has been hot lately like over 40 degrees. I think you just have to make sure you update to the latest firmware updates as these are all bug fixes.
I highly recommend this product.
