Recently, a friend of mine was in a fender bender. He knew he was not at fault, but the insurance company said it was equal fault between drivers. If he had a Garmin Dash Cam 20 for his RV, then he would’ve had crystal clear HD video evidence of the accident.
I know what you may be thinking, I already have a Garmin GPS for my RV and a TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor system mounted on my dash, so why do I need one more thing blocking the beautiful country side?
If you are a good (safe, responsible, careful) driver, you will need the video as evidence against those bad (unsafe, irresponsible, reckless) drivers. It will save you the headache of trying to prove your case, and ensure that you get the insurance money you deserve after an accident. Not to mention, the unscrupulous insurance fraud scammers who will back into you on purpose and say you rear ended them!

The Garmin Dash Cam 20 is an easy-to-use high-definition driving recorder with 2.3-inch LCD display.

The Garmin 20’s wide-angle lens will capture the entire road, and its integrated microphone will give you the option of recording audio inside your rv.
Imagine Having an Eyewitness That Never Blinks
You will never need to worry about starting or stopping the Garmin Dash Cam 20 for your RV. If the Dash Cam is plugged into a powered source, then you can be rest-assured that it is recording.
In addition, all of the recorded footage is stamped with time and location so you know exactly when and where each event occurred. When reviewing videos on your computer, you’ll have a record of latitude, longitude, date, time, speed and direction of travel. This feature is where the Garmin Dash Cam 20 truly shines. Other products only provide you with video. Having this information will make your insurance case a slam dunk!
The Garmin Dash Cam 20 also features an automatic incident detection (G-Sensor) with customizable sensitivity settings. When an incident – like hard braking or a collision – is detected, your camera will automatically save the current, last and next recordings; thereby, preserving a complete record of the event.
You can also remove the Garmin Dash Cam 20 for a close-up view of vehicle or property damage. This will allow you to take additional video or still photo snapshots.

Garmin Dash Cam 20 Videos
Note: If you search on YouTube, there are thousands of dash cam videos that will show you every possible scenario that may be captured on your Garmin Dash Cam 20. Much of the content is disturbing, so you may want to avoid doing this research if you are sensitive to graphic imagery. Also, a lot of these videos were not taken with the best dash cam so the quality will not be as nice as with the Garmin Dash Cam 20.
Be safe out there!
