Garmin Dash Cam 55 Plus is rated out of 5 by 4.Rated 2 out of 5 by Chris82bubs from Loved until it stopped working 240miles away from home Mine was great recommend this with size and great fittings and eazy uses got marryed following day started driving and will not switch on and i hate driving with out itDate published: 2018-10-02Rated 4 out of 5 by charliemow13 from Compact and easy to use Picked up this dash cam today after quite a few read ups. I have a Garmin Edge 500 cycle gps and a Nuvi1310 satnav for the car already which have performed without fault so far for many years so despite what others may have experienced I've got a fairly high level of confidence in Garmin products. Set up easily enough in the car park before leaving the store, was easy enough to route the extremely long power cable from the mounting position tucked away behind trim along the top, side and bottom of screen and then down to cig lighter socket (I have a very old car) in the centre console. Mounted so that I can just see the bottom edge of the camera under the edge of the rear view mirror so the red power light is visible while driving. To place the mount I just turned on the blowers full blast at full temp for a few minutes to clear the mist from the screen and warm it up a bit before wiping the install area over to get rid of an dust and dirt. Pressed home the mount, pulled the camera away and then gave it a good 30 seconds pressure on the little metal thing to make sure it was well stuck. Very tidy and compact Screen timeout on the device is also something I find useful as I didn't want to be distracted by the video image while driving. I've left the other alerts on for now but as I can't see the screen behind the mirror I just hear the sound the unit makes. Not sure how accurate they are yet. I did turn off the voice control feature pretty much straight away as it kicked in a couple of times just sitting in the car park installing it while my lad was chattering away to me. Video quality looks pretty good, was a fairly gloomy and wet drive home but on 1080/60fps everything was nice and clear. Will be experimenting with the other modes as time goes on. I haven't tried the Virb app on my android phone yet which has had some terrible reviews. As soon as I got home I just switched on the laptop and made sure Garmin Express was the most current up to date version before plugging in the dash cam. There were updates available for firmware, safety cams, language and something else and all have seemed to go without issue. The polarising cap which makes this the "Plus" is just a cover over the standard 55 lens. I was inquisitive as it didn't look to be mounted exactly right, slightly off vertical centre on the lens, so I carefully removed and repositioned. Overall very happy with it out of the box both in terms of features and operation, hope it proves to be as robust as the other Garmin gadgets I have. Marked it down one star and on value for the non-resuable mounts, you can get a suction mount from Garmin and this will cost another tenner.Date published: 2018-09-08Rated 5 out of 5 by marmarscokat from great quality - great features Garmin 55 plus. Small and compact with an excellent mag mount instead of a suction cup. The unit has a polarised filter fitted to the lens for clearer quality in bright sun light or driving under street lights. The video quality is excellent using the garmin virb software to view it on your smartphone. other great features include speed cam warnings, forward collision warning and lane assist. Some of these features you may like maybe not but they are easily turned on and off. the unit has voice recognition which works well and the unit can also be easily updated with the latest garmin software with the cable supplied. Its great and i would recommend it to anyone looking for a small and relatively inexpensive dashcamDate published: 2018-08-10Rated 1 out of 5 by AndrewRB from Disappointing and had to be returned due to faults. I bought this with high hopes as the Nextbase I had fitted was quite large and intrusive. However, I had to return it for a refund as the voice command did not function, the only choice in the language options was American English and every time it started I had to go through all the sequence of settings that should only be needed once to set the camera up. After a search online I found out that these were issues that others had experienced with the 55 and with earlier versions of the software. So clearly there are unresolved issues of stability and unreliability with the software for this unit. Very disappointing, as the features and its size are appealing but not if it doesn't function as intended and for now I'll keep using my Nextbase which has been totally reliable for the last two years.Date published: 2018-08-05
