Garmin’s New Dash Cam 65W

Dash Cam™ 65W

1080p with 180-degree field of view

Captures More of the Scene on Video

Dash Cam 65W is an easy-to-use high-definition driving recorder with 2.0” LCD display. With a 180-degree field of view, it captures more of the environment — including cross traffic — and includes GPS for detailed time and location data, pinpointing exactly where and when events occurred. Rely on your Dash Cam 65W to capture excellent video detail in both bright and low-light conditions. Mount the camera to your windshield, and record your drive in 1080p. Dash Cam records in a continuous loop, using the included replaceable microSD™ card. To add more memory, add a larger microSD card (accepts up to 64 GB, sold separately; Class 10 required). Play back the footage right on the display — or review later on your computer or use the free VIRB® Mobile app on your smartphone.

Control It with Your Voice

Command dash cam with your voice, and keep your hands on the wheel. Say “OK, Garmin” to save video, take a pic, start/stop audio recording and start/stop the Travelapse feature.

Your Eyewitness That Never Blinks

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

Share the Drive with Travelapse

Dash Cam 65W has built-in Wi-Fi® so you can wirelessly sync videos to your compatible smartphone after downloading the free VIRB Mobile app. This makes it easy to share videos with friends, insurance agencies or legal authorities.

Wirelessly Sync Videos to Your Smartphone

Dash Cam 65W has built-in Wi-Fi® so you can wirelessly sync videos to your compatible smartphone after downloading the free VIRB Mobile app. This makes it easy to share videos with friends, insurance agencies or legal authorities.

Drive with Increased Awareness

Dash Cam 65W features helpful driver awareness warnings to help encourage safer driving. The forward collision warning alerts if you drive too closely to the car ahead. Lane departure warnings alert you if you stray from your lane. Built-in red light and speed camera data alerts you when red light cameras or speed cameras are near. Get regularly updated red light and speed camera location data with a subscription to the Cyclops™ database, which is maintained daily and contains information about fixed red light and speed cameras. And when your vehicle is stopped at an intersection or in traffic, the “Go” alert notifies you when traffic ahead of your vehicle is moving again.

Monitor Your Parked Vehicle

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

Key Features

180-degree field of view captures more of the environment, including cross traffic
High-quality 2.1 megapixel camera with 1080p video capture; works even in low-light conditions
Forward collision and lane departure warnings plus alerts for nearby red light cameras and speed cameras

New Fantom Radar from Garmin

GMR™ Fantom 18

18-inch Dome Radar with MotionScope™ Technology

  • 18-inch, 40 W solid-state, dome radar
  • MotionScope™ technology uses the Doppler effect to detect and highlight targets moving toward you or away in different colors to help avoid collisions, find flocks of birds, and track weather
  • Pulse Compression technology provides high resolution while maximizing energy, to enhance detection and identification of targets
  • Target Size allows you to adjust the size of objects on the radar image
  • 20 foot to 48 nautical mile detection range

The 18-inch, 40 W solid-state Garmin GMR Fantom 18 dome radar features MotionScope technology, which uses the Doppler effect to detect and highlight moving targets to help you avoid potential collisions. Fully integrates with select Garmin chartplotters.

High-power 40 W Radar with 5.2 Degree Beam

You get excellent close- and long-range target detection ranging from as close as 20 feet to 48 nautical miles, even in fog or rain. Its 5.2 degree horizontal beamwidth provides a high resolution image and high antenna gain so it can pick out targets at a distance. The result is this radar paints a clear, concise image of the shoreline, other vessels and impending weather — right on your Garmin chartplotter. You get consistent target positions, excellent target separation and reliable operation. Its 8-bit true color imagery also helps you discriminate large targets from small ones and enhances target separation. Radar data is overlaid onto charts (autopilot or heading sensor recommended). Low power consumption, instant turn on and no delay from warming up as with magnetron radars. Rotation speeds of 24 for reduced power consumption and 48 rpm to provide fast screen updates.

MotionScope Doppler Technology

GMR Fantom radars use the Doppler effect to detect and highlight moving targets to help you avoid potential collisions, find flocks of birds and track weather formations. The Doppler effect is the frequency shift in the radar echo due to the relative motion of the target. This allows for instant detection of any targets moving toward or away from the radar. MotionScope highlights the moving targets in different colors on the radar display so you can navigate around other boats or severe weather, or toward fishing spots where birds are feeding at the surface.

Target Size

Allows you to adjust the size of objects on the radar image.

 

 

Auto Bird Gain

Fishermen know, when you find birds at the water’s surface, you’ll also find fish. To further improve your fishing experience, use Auto Bird Gain, which helps to locate flocks of birds at the water’s surface where baitfish are also likely to be found.

 

Echo Trails

A fading “trail” is left on the screen to help you quickly and easily identify moving targets and potential collision threats. Trails are corrected for your boat’s rotation when an autopilot or heading sensor is connected to your Garmin network.

 

Dual Range

Single radar antenna is capable of providing split screen images on your chartplotter side-by-side, with independent range setting and controls for both close and long range.

 

Dual Radar Support

Provides redundancy and the ability for each display unit on the boat to select data from 1 of 2 different radar sources.

 

Dynamic Auto Gain

Dynamic Auto Gain automatically adjusts to your surroundings for optimal performance in all conditions.

 

Dynamic Sea Filter

Dynamic Sea Filter automatically adjusts gain to changing sea conditions with user options for low, medium or high filtering.

 

Radar Overlay

Overlays the radar image on the chartplotter’s map page. An autopilot or heading sensor is recommended for best results.

 

MARPA Target Tracking

Mini-automatic radar plotting aid (MARPA) tracks up to 10 selected targets, helping you keep track of other vessels and avoid collisions.

 

Guard Zone

Set the safety zone and receive an alarm when an object enters the zone.

 

 

VRM and EBL

Variable range markers (VRM) and electronic bearing lines (EBL) allow rapid measurements of distance and bearing to vessels and land.

 

 

It’s Your Time

All Garmin radars are designed to be easy to install and easy to use. There are no complex user settings to adjust; just install your radar and start using it. You can rely on the GMR Fantom radar to provide reliable, optimum performance in all conditions. Because, it’s your time.

These units can share waypoints with the optional data sharing cable ($30). This is by far the best deal we have seen on a 9″ unit with CHIRP SideVu and maps EVER!!!

Garmin echoMAP 95sv – Canada – 010-01393-00 with Transducer

9-inch Combo with DownVü and SideVü Scanning Sonar

  • High-contrast colour display with keypad control with preloaded Canada LakeVü™ HD maps
  • Built-in DownVü and SideVü scanning sonar with the clearest images on the water
  • Built-in 500 W (RMS) HD-ID™ sonar (4,000 W peak-to-peak)
  • 5 Hz Internal GPS updates position and heading 5 times per second
  • Tilting, quick-disconnect mount

echoMAP 95sv includes a 9-inch high-contrast colour display with automatic backlight adjustment. Fast, responsive 5 Hz GPS/GLONASS refreshes your position and heading 5 times each second to make your movement on the screen more fluid. echoMAP comes with 1 transducer for 77/200 kHz HD-ID sonar and Garmin DownVü™/SideVü™, the clearest scanning sonars on the water. It also supports Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motors with integrated transducers. The combo’s cables plug directly into the mount, allowing you to quickly install and remove your device from power and the mount. Transom and trolling motor mount included.

Clearest Scanning Sonar on the Water
Garmin DownVü scanning sonar gives you a nearly photographic image of what passes below your boat. Garmin SideVü scanning sonar gives you a crisp, clear view of what lies up to 750-feet off to each side of your boat. You clearly see structure, submerged objects and fish. Traditional Garmin HD-ID sonar and both DownVü and SideVü scanning sonar are combined into one transducer. Also provides HD-ID support for Minn Kota® and MotorGuide® trolling motors with integrated transducers. The echoMAP 95sv also includes sonar-recording capability that coordinates the timing of the sonar return with your boat’s position and saves digital information for playback on a computer using free HomePort™ planning software. Use the User Data Sharing Cable to share waypoints and routes between multiple devices.

Preloaded Canada LakeVü HD Maps
Canada LakeVü HD includes the most detailed freshwater fishing maps ever. With more than 6,000 total lakes — of which 1,000 are HD lakes having 1-foot contours shoreline to shoreline — within Alberta, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Yukon provinces. It also includes detailed coverage of the Great Lakes and Trent Severn Waterway, so there is no need to purchase additional mapping accessories for these navigable waters. You get clearly displayed, detailed shorelines, coastlines, streams, channels and fishing locations. It also includes underwater features, such as river beds and fish attractors. Plus, Safety Shading — which allows you to input and shade your minimum depth to help you avoid running aground.

Heading and Position Refreshed 5 Times per Second
Fast, responsive 5 Hz GPS/GLONASS refreshes your position and heading 5 times each second to make your movement on the screen more fluid. It makes dropping up to 5,000 accurate waypoints and finding your way back to your secret fishing hot spots quick and easy.

Take Your echoMAP with You
When you’re off the water, it’s easy to keep your echoMAP safe and secure. You don’t have to mess with plugging and unplugging wires from the unit because the cords plug directly into the mount. This allows you to quickly install and remove your echoMAP from power and the mount.

Upgrade with the Best Garmin Maps on the Water
A single microSD™ card slot provides expandable memory for accessory map purchases such as Canada LakeVü HD Ultra or BlueChart® g2 Vision. Canada LakeVü HD Ultra and BlueChart g2 Vision provide exclusive Garmin Auto Guidance that directs you right to your hot spots by instantly creating an on-screen path based on your boat’s specifications that you can follow to avoid shallow water and other charted obstructions.


Enhanced Auto Guidance
Just enter the location where you want to go and patented Garmin Auto Guidance technology instantly searches through relevant charts to create a safe virtual pathway on the display that helps you avoid low bridges, shallow water and other charted obstructions en route.

Better still, with enhanced Version 2.0, you now have access to even more features and capabilities. You’re able to adjust the calculated Auto Guidance pathway by inserting “via” points at interim stops or landmarks along your desired route. You can easily review hazard points along your calculated path. And you can even engage your compatible Garmin autopilot to follow the Auto Guidance route, automatically. Other 2.0 enhancements give you the ability to calculate arrival times at any point on your route (great for timing arrivals to correspond with bridge openings and other time-critical events). Better still, you can now save your plotted Auto Guidance paths for future navigation by backing them up on an SD™ card with your BlueChart® g2 Vision® or Lake Vü™ HD Ultra cartography¹

GPX Waypoints Transfer
If you have waypoints, tracks or frequently used routes stored on another manufacturer’s GPS product – or on a Garmin handheld device – now it’s easier than ever to transfer those items to your new Garmin chartplotter, via industry-standard GPX software formatting. GPX is an open standard format for GPS data exchange across platforms and applications. With this easy-to-use interface technology, Garmin has taken “no waypoint left behind” to a whole new level of trade-up convenience.

The Big Picture

Driving in this morning, traffic was much worse than it’s usual messiness. Through some great devices, which are sold at Radioworld, we can see how much technology has come along to help us.

My Garmin Nuvi 3597LMTHD GPS had this to say:

Nuvi 3597LMTHD
Nuvi 3597LMTHD

Unfortunately, in this case, the Nuvi could not give me any detour options – there weren’t any ! I knew about the slowdown well in advance, but unfortunately thought everything would be cleaned up before I got there – wrong !
The Garmin live traffic information is excellent. On numerous occasions it reports traffic much sooner than the local news / advertising station with their traffic reports every ten minutes. Sometimes you can’t wait ten minutes !

Looking at my vehicle tracking (below) with my Bluefox GPS Tracker you can see the slowdown where the reporting points are much closer together. If you are a fleet owner, you won’t be questioning why your driver took longer than normal to arrive – you’ll have the facts right in front of you, near real time.
