I have a GPS with a built-in camera taking 3 minute videos all the time as I go along. It also has an "incident"  function that takes a photo if a violent jolt is experienced. You can download the last two hours (depending on the size of the chip) of your journey when you get home. You can also take a photo as you go if there is something happening, such as bad behavior or an accident or animals crossing the road in the Kruger. The video shows your speed and time.

I find it difficult to protect recordings - e.g. you see something crossing the road on your first day and want to save it and not record over it - seem, to have to go through 2 processes - 1- press the protect key (which should just do the job till you switch it off and the 2 go to the recording and protect it. perhaps I am doing it incorrectly

I have not done that yet, I also assume that the short clip is protected if you prompt the save button. Perhaps you ARE actually saving the clip but you may not know how to find it on the PC.

Make sure the software to view is good.

Ek het 2 Garmins dash cams, een in my Bakkie en ander een in my Suzuki Vitara.

Hulle is permanent gekoppel en ek gebruik hulle nou amper vir 3 jaar. Het nog nie probleme ondervind met hulle.

Hulle het n paar ander ekstra funksies ook by.

Daar is seker goedkoper producte op die mark.

Ek het die Garmin Drive Assist 51- dis 'n GPS met ingeboude paneelbordkamera. Hy werk baie  goed en ek was baie dankbaar ek het hom nadat 'n man teen my vasgery het. Hy het my daarvan beskuldig dat ek nie 'n by stopteken stilgehou het nie en danksy my Garmin kon ek presies die teendeel bewys! Ek kon 'n videogreep vir my versekering gee en ek hoop hulle kon dit nuttig gebruik. Hierdie Garmin kos egter duur - net so duskant R4000 by Takealot. Ek geniet al byna 3 jaar se goeie diens van hierdie Garmin.

Ek het nou nog nie die "REQUIREMENT" vir so iets nie. Seker baie behulpsaam as jy in ongeluk is.

Ek hou dus maar hier dop om te sien wat julle se.

Ek wonder wie het al die TOEPS probeer op 'n selfoon.

Die een wat ek het kan tot 1920x1080 video neem. Jy kan stel watter resolusie jy wil opneem om plek te spaar. Jy kan kies watter intensiteit van 'n stamp jy wil opneem van 2G en meer. Die laaste 3 videos is altyd "protected". Jy kan as jy iets sien dadelik 'n foto neem. Die fotos se resolusie is ook versterbaar tot en met die kanera wat die foon het. Jy kan sien hoeveel plek is oor op jou kaart. Te veel ander opsies om te onthou.

Verder kan fotos/videos dadelik "ge upload" word sodat niks verlore gaan as die kaart vol is nie.

Ek het ook op 'n goeie TOEP afgekom wat soos van ouds op die Nokias periodiek 'n foto kan neem soos mens dit opgestel het. Dit was 'n funksie wat ek altyd gemis het toe ons smart fone begin kry het wat ook nie so smart was nie.

Die Garmin GPS met ingeboude cam klink goed maar die kwaliteit van die beeld is maar swak. Dit weer 'n geval van as jy alles met 'n enkele apparaat probeer doen, gaan hy nie alles goed doen nie. Koop eerder een van die Garmin dascams- hulle word volgens reviews wat ek gelees het, as van die beste beskou.  Selfs as jy die videobeeld gebruik om enkelfotos te vertoon, is alles, ook die ou voor jou se nommerplaat baie duidelik sigbaar, selfs teen die laagste kwaliteit en snags.  AS jy enkelfotos neem, is die kwaliteit nog beter.

Ek het aanvanklik een van die "cheapies" gebruik (het hom nog) en die beeld is so swak dat jy nie die 'n nommerplaat kan uitmaak nie, so in geval van 'n ongeluk gan dit jou niks help nie.

OK Here goes: The camera on the Garmin GPS is rather low quality.  I would rather go for a dedicated Garmin dash cam.  They are superior and reviews I have read put them in the top positions. Even on the lowest video setting if you freeze the image, you can clearly make out the number plate of the car in front of you. They take clear images even at night. Higher video settings and stills give even better quality images.

I have had a cheapy- still have it- and it was not worth the small price.  Even at the best setting I could not read number plates.  If ever you need such footage for legal purposes, this will not be of any help.
