Digital Camera World Verdict

We love the Garmin Tandem’s compact size and ease-of-use. It also shoots impressive 1440p video with HDR to the front, and has voice controls that actually work. We only wish the interior camera, although good and with a wide angle lens, recorded at a higher resolution.

The Garmin Tandem is a dash cam that simultaneously records forwards and rearwards to capture a view of the road ahead, and of the driver and their passengers. It isn’t the sort of dash cam every motorist needs, but for taxi and ride-share drivers it could prove invaluable if a claim is ever made against them by a customer.
