Garmin VIRB Remote Control
Our take on the Garmin VIRB Remote Control by Crutchfield's James Ralston
Control your Garmin VIRB or VIRB Elite camera without taking your eyes off the trail, slope, halfpipe — whatever action sport you're engaged in. This ergonomic remote features ANT+™ wireless technology to communicate with your VIRB camera, plus a simple three-button layout that's easy for your hands to learn by feel. If you can spare a quick glance down, LED lights will show you when the remote has recognized your camera, and when your camera is recording. A wrist strap and neck lanyard are included.
