Garmin keeps your journeys in view

Garmin's Dash Cam 47 offers a wealth of benefits for commuters and road trippers alike. Its adjustable magnetic mount keeps it securely on your windshield, and Garmin provides a dual USB 12-volt charger to keep it charged along with another one of your portable devices. You can check out the action on its 2" LCD screen, as this Garmin loop-records your travels.

Garmin keeps your journeys in view

Garmin's Dash Cam 47 offers a wealth of benefits for commuters and road trippers alike. Its adjustable magnetic mount keeps it securely on your windshield, and Garmin provides a dual USB 12-volt charger to keep it charged along with another one of your portable devices. You can check out the action on its 2" LCD screen, as this Garmin loop-records your travels.

As it also gives you an eye on the road ahead, you'll hear an audible Forward Collision warning if you approach a car too rapidly, and a Lane Departure warning if you veer from your lane. And thanks to built-in GPS, the Dash Cam 47 even detects speed and red light cameras on the horizon and gives you a heads up.

A perfect picture

The Garmin Dash Cam 47 watches the road through a wide-angle lens, capturing everything ahead of you in full HD. Plus, its Travelapse feature can compile hours of video into a short highlight reel. Best of all, Garmin's voice command feature lets you start and stop video recording and more just by saying so. You can choose to record in selectable 720p or 1080p resolution. Garmin also equips the Dash Cam 47 with built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for easy sharing with mobile devices.

Do more with Garmin Drive

The Garmin Drive app lets you tap into your Dash Cam 47 three new ways:

First is through the Vault, which is a secure online storage platform from Garmin. Any videos triggered by an incident (whether you're driving or not) automatically go to the Vault and you can access them via a password and your Garmin Drive app that's connected to Wi-Fi. This way you don't have to worry about lost or damaged memory cards. Extended storage plans are available with an optional paid subscription.

The second way is through Live View, which also requires a Wi-Fi connection to the Drive app, as well as constant power to the dash cam (see the next paragraph). You'll be able to peek in on whatever your camera's seeing at any time, from anywhere.

The third way is Parking Guard, which monitors activity around your parked vehicle and sends an alert to your smartphone if an incident is detected. It'll also start recording automatically when an alert is sent. You may need Garmin's optional constant power cable OR optional hardwire powering kit (neither is included) to supply constant power to the 47 while your vehicle is parked with the engine turned off.

Incident Detection

If you're involved in an accident, Garmin's Incident Detection feature uses a built-in G-Sensor to detect hard braking or a collision, and then saves vital video files for a complete record of the event. Built-in GPS geo-tags your files with latitude, longitude, date, time, speed, and direction of travel in order to provide a more complete presentation.

Built-in microphone

An integrated microphone allows you to record audio; if you need to take the cam out and get some snapshots of damage, it offers 2.1-megapixel photo capability and battery life up to 30 minutes as well. Watch whatever you record on the cam's built-in monitor, or download Garmin's free Dash Cam player software to view and organize your video files on your computer.

Multiple camera system

If you own multiple Garmin dash cameras, they can be paired to your smartphone through the Garmin Drive app. Use this cool feature to install multiple cameras in the same vehicle, or to connect dash cameras from multiple vehicles to the same phone. Garmin lets you create composite picture-in-picture videos from simultaneous recordings.

Note: This dash cam includes a pre-installed 16GB microSD card for video storage.

Product Research


Overview: The Garmin Dash Cam 47 (010-02505-00) is a compact, stand-alone dash camera that records HD video of the road ahead as you drive. The camera has a 2" LCD display, and mounts to your windshield with the supplied adhesive/magnetic mount. It records video and audio onto the included microSD card. As it records, the time and date and location data are embedded into the video so you'll know exactly when and where a captured event occurred. The camera also provides driver awareness features and alerts for your safety.

GPS: Built-in Garmin GPS technology (which includes GPS and Galileo positioning satellites) provides an accurate record of your location, should an event take place. The unit will embed location information into the recordings as you drive. Should an accident or incident occur, the captured footage will include the exact location (latitude and longitude), direction of travel, speed, date, and time the event took place.

Recording: The Dash Cam 47 records in a continuous loop onto an inserted microSD card. It records both audio and video as you drive, or video only (if desired). As long as the Dash Cam is receiving power, it is recording. As the available memory runs out, it starts recording over the oldest recordings. You can manually save a video recording or take a still photo by pressing a button on the side panel.

Resolution: The Dash Cam 47 records high definition video at 30 frames per second onto the microSD card. You can select the video resolution at 1920 x 1080p or 1260 x 720p. The higher the resolution, the shorter the available recording time on the memory card. Both settings have Clarity™ HDR (High Dynamic Range) which combines multiple exposure levels for each video frame and can improve clarity in high contrast or low-light conditions.

Display: The unit is equipped with a 2" color LCD display with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. You can use the display to properly aim the camera while recording, or for playing back recordings. In the menu, you can adjust the brightness, color mode, and display timeout. The amount of data that is overlayed over the image can be adjusted as desired (date and time, location, speed).

Lens: The Dash Cam has a 140° wide-angle lens that gives you a full view of the road, including most cross traffic. You can manually adjust the exposure for brighter or darker lighting conditions.

Microphone: An integrated microphone records audio inside the vehicle. If desired, the microphone can be turned off so the unit records only video.

Power Cables: The Dash Cam 47 comes with two power cables, allowing you to install the camera in a number of ways. The longer cable (13.25 feet) can be used for a more permanent installation, feeding the cable up and around the windshield, and tucked out of sight behind the trim. The shorter cable (5') can be used for temporary installations, especially if you transfer the camera from one vehicle to another.

Rechargeable Battery: The built-in rechargeable battery is charged when connected to vehicle power through the DC power port. Normally, the unit will be plugged into vehicle power as you drive. If you need to remove the Dash Cam from the vehicle, the battery has enough stored power to operate approximately 30 minutes.

Record After Power Loss: You can set the Dash Cam to continue recording after the DC power is lost. You can choose between 5 seconds, 15 seconds, 30 seconds, and 1 minute.

Constant Power Cable: With the optional Constant Power Cable, you can power the Dash Cam at all times. The cable plugs into your vehicle's OBD II port, allowing you to power up to two dash cameras for a selected length of time (10 minutes, 24 hours, or always on) after you turn off your vehicle.

Parking Guard: The Parking Guard feature lets you record video automatically while your vehicle is parked. When you turn off your vehicle, the camera automatically enters the parked recording mode. Each time it detects an incident, the camera automaticaly records video and sends a notification to your smartphone (if the camera is connected to a Wi-Fi network). In the settings, you can set the amount of time the vehicle must remain still before Parking Guard begins (Auto Start), and the amount of time Parking Guard remains active before turning off (Monitoring Time). If connected to an external power source, such as the optional Parking Mode Cable or Constant Power Cable, the device will record 15 seconds before incidents are detected (Record Before Incident). If the camera is not connected to an external power source, you can set the unit to use its built-in battery when an incident is detected (Run on Battery).

microSD Card: The Dash Cam 47 records video and audio onto a microSD card (a 16 GB card is included with the camera). The camera is compatible with microSD cards 8 GB or greater (up to 512 GB). Class 10 speed rated cards, or higher, are required.

Automatic Incident Detection: The Dash Cam has a built-in G-sensor, which can detect when a collision or hard braking occurs. When the G-sensor detects an incident, the previous, current, and next recordings are automatically saved. This way, a complete record of the moments before, during, and after the event is preserved.

Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS): As you drive, the Dash Cam 47 continuously records the view in front of your vehicle. The Forward Collision Warning feature alerts you if you are driving too close to the vehicle ahead of you. The FCWS feature automatically activates when your vehicle exceeds 30 mph. The device determines your speed using GPS, and calculates a safe following distance to the vehicle ahead of you, based on your speed. If the device detects that you are following too closely, a warning appears on the screen and an audible alert will sound. You can set the Forward Collision Warning sensitivity to low, medium, or high.

Go Alert: The Go Alert can alert you at a stop light or during traffic delays when the vehicle in front of you has started moving. When the road ahead of you is clearing, the Dash Cam 47 plays a tone and displays an alert.

Lane Departure Warning System: The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) alerts you when you may be drifting over into oncoming traffic or in danger of running off the road. The LDWS provides alerts only when your vehicle exceeds 40 mph. The alert appears on the left or right side of the screen to indicate which lane boundary you crossed.

Red Light/Speed Cameras: The Dash Cam 47 will sound an alert, and display a warning, that you approach a reported speed or red light camera. The feature is only available in select regions, where location information on Red Light and Speed cameras is available. A subscription is required to obtain and maintain an updated database of red light and speed camera locations.

Damage Camera: Should you be involved in an accident, you can remove the Dash Cam 47 from its mount and use it to take pictures of vehicle or property damage.

Travelapse: The Travelapse feature can capture still photos at a set interval to create a fast-motion, time-lapse video of your trip. When the dash cam is recording Travelapse, it does not stop recording normal dash cam video.

Smartphone Pairing: You can pair your Dash Cam with your smartphone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and use the Garmin Drive app to change camera settings, set up a multi-camera network, and view, edit, and save photos and videos. When viewing videos or photos, the Dash Cam stops recording, and alerts are disabled. Both saved and unsaved videos and photos can be viewed on your smartphone. You can trim the length of your videos to remove unwanted footage before you export it to your smartphone.

Multiple Camera Network: Multiple dash cameras can be paired to your smartphone through the Garmin Drive app. This allows you to connect cameras from multiple vehicles to the same phone, or install multiple dash cameras in the same vehicle. You can create composite picture-in-picture videos from simultaneous recordings. If one of the cameras in the network was GPS-connected, you can add location information to the saved videos on all of the cameras in the network. The Dash Cam Auto Sync feature lets you shoot, control, and playback synchronized footage from up to four cameras.

Voice Control: You can control various aspects of the Dash Cam using specific voice commands. The following actions can be performed using a voice command: Save Video, Take a Picture, Record Audio, Stop Audio, Start Travelapse, and Stop Travelapse. The phrase "OK, Garmin" should be used before each voice command to activate the voice control feature.

Installation: The Dash Cam 47 is designed to be mounted on your windshield using the included adhesive magnetic mount. The adhesive metal disk is only 7/8" in diameter, however, it is designed for long term installations. The camera mount magnetically attaches to the metal disk, and allows it to be easily removed. Two adhesive metal disks are included, allowing you to move the camera from one vehicle to another. The camera should always be mounted in the upright orientation, otherwise the resulting video will be upside down or sideways. You can mount the camera in the center, left side, or right side of the windshield. If connected to an ignition-switch powered outlet, the Dash Cam will turn on and off automatically as you turn the ignition on and off.

Note: For proper functionality of the device, you should enter the Camera Placement position (left, right, center) and Vehicle Height (normal, tall) in the menu.

Viewing Videos and Photos: You can view recorded video and still image files on the Dash Cam's LCD screen. You can remove the microSD card and view the files using a card reader on your computer. When viewing the footage on your computer, you'll have a record of the date and time. Videos and still images are stored in several folders:

  • 100EVENT: videos saved automatically when the unit detects an incident
  • 101PHOTO: still photos
  • 102SAVED: manually saved videos
  • 103PARKM: videos saved while parked
  • 104TLPSE: Travelapse videos
  • 105UNSVD: Unsaved video footage; when storage space is full, the oldest unsaved video is overwritten

Garmin Drive App: Pairing your Dash Cam to your smartphone via the Garmin Drive™ app provides additional features. The app lets you set up a multiple-camera network, change camera settings, and view, edit, and save photos and videos. You can also upload, manage, and share footage on a secure, online storage drive using the Vault Subscription Plan. The Garmin Drive app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 13.0 or later, and Android devices running version 6.0 and up.

Garmin Vault: The Vault subscription plan lets you store your saved Dash Cam videos. By default, videos are stored in the Vault for 24 hours. The Standard Vault plan stores videos for 7 days for $4.99 per month. The Advanced Plan extends the storage to 30 days for $9.99 per month. There is no size limit for the amount of data stored. Uploading videos to the Vault requires an active Wi-Fi connection.

Will the Garmin RV 890 GPS provide power for the Dash Cam 47?

Greetings Michael, and thank you for your question. The RV890 has a type A USB port to power the dash cam 46, as well as the replacement dash cam 47.

Can I review the video on my phone without a wire connection? Does it capture the plate number of a car directly ahead of me?
jack  May 14, 2023
1 answer
You may review recordings wirelessly, but Wi-Fi connection is required. Whether or not it successfully captures a license plate number depends on distance between vehicles as well as weather conditions. Anything that could obscure your view of the plate would also obscure the camera's view.
