Best "miniature" dashcam: Garmin Dash Cam Mini
Dashcams in theory are supposed to be small, compact, and have the ability to snuggly fit in your windshield without crowding the empty space. Unfortunately, many are unnecessarily bulky, cluttered wires, and ergonomically ill-designed. Not so with the new Garmin Mini! This incredibly tiny dashcam is the new benchmark for miniature in-car video recording. No larger than a golf ball, the Garmin Mini still includes all the important functions you need, as well as an impressive feature set you wouldn't expect in such a small device.

With discreet style, an amazing set of features, and a comfortable price range, the DR750X-2CH is one of the best high-end dual-lens (front + rear coverage) dash cams of 2021. Utilizing Sony STARVIS video sensors, the DR750X-2CH excels both day and night with 60FPS full HD quality. Don’t lose a critical moment due to darkness again and rest easy with 24/7 protection thanks to a brand new low voltage cut-off function built into the unit itself. This enables parking mode without the need for an external Power Magic Pro! BlackVue has made it much easier to "get on the cloud", thanks to the new CM100LTE module. This optional "plug and play" add-on device connects to the front camera of the DR750X-2CH and provides a data path up to the internet for your camera. You can still use a built-in WiFi hotspot signal (if already present in your vehicle), but this 4G LTE module is superior due to being able to stay powered on while parked, when most in-vehicle WiFi hotspots turn off with the engine. So many feature at such a desirable price – the choice is clear to see!
