Control with Your Voice

Control your dashcam with your voice. Just say “OK, Garmin” to save a video or still picture, start/stop audio recording or start/stop the Travelapse video capture feature.

Capture the Scene

With a wide 140-degree field of view it captures the environment — including most cross traffic — and includes detailed time and GPS location data, pinpointing exactly where and when events occurred. It records nonstop in a continuous loop, saving any incidents if they occur. Play back the footage right on the dashcam display — or review on your phone using the Garmin Drive app.

Dash Cam Auto Sync

Dash Cam Auto Sync wirelessly connects up to four Garmin Dash Cams at the front, back and sides of your vehicle to provide virtually complete 360° coverage. If you save a video on one dashcam, the others will also save it. Use the Garmin Drive app on your smartphone to create a “picture-in-picture” video from any two perspectives at the same time. This makes it easy to share videos with friends, insurance agencies or legal authorities.

Share the Drive with Travelapse

The Travelapse feature provides an easy and fun way to record and share your adventures by condensing hours of driving into minutes of highlights.

Extra USB Support

The included dual USB power adapter maintains the ability to charge phones or other accessories while powering your dashcam. Also included are two power cable options to allow for upward or downward cable routing.

Protection When Parked

Parking mode monitors your car’s surroundings while your car is parked, and the engine is not running. It automatically begins recording if motion is detected (requires parking mode cable, sold separately; professional installation recommended).

Built-in Bluetooth and WiFi

Built-in Bluetooth and WiFi make it easy to wirelessly view, edit and share captured media using the Garmin Drive app.

The Bottom Line

The Dash Cam 56 from Garmin is a great choice for quality and reliability. Physically, it's one of the smallest dashcams out there (despite the fact that the 56 even manages to include a screen on the back), and from a name like Garmin, you know you're in good hands. For the even-wider field of view version of this dashcam, please see the Garmin Dash Cam 66W.
