I went online to garmin.com 2 days ago to read up on the 55W 56W. Came back today and they were gone. 56W & 66W now there. 66W now has the 1440P resolution plus 180 degree view

They have also released the Dash Cam Mini which is 1080P and Super capacitor, Testing one out currently. Very Small, Quality seems decent.

How would the minicam recording work as a rear camera, does it record on it's own self-contained card, or does it somehow connect to the front dash camera's chip and record the videos there? Like a side-by-side thing when viewing?

Not bad considering the size, Keen to see how it does at night.

I'm wondering how it will do in high heat climates? I found no references to super-caps so I presume they're still using a battery to save the last files, same as their older cams. A cam is no good unless it's working no matter what it's other aspects are ;) I could easily become a Garmin fan if they would just get away from batteries. The rest of what I see them doing is highly impressive (y)

10 years, many dashcams
Then you dident look close enough @SawMaster say right there under specs

Battery,,,,,, no ( use capacitor )

I do like the auto sync with up to 4 cameras, thats pretty darn cool, and something i have hated not having for a long time using several single channel dashcams on all sides of my car.

From DashCamOwnersAustralia youtube video, it looks like it needs a lens filter for the glare.

My car is pretty bad for reflections no matter the cam, Garmin does do a CPL though

I've got Garmin filters on both of the 55's. They worked great.

it works separately but the app syncs the videos, up to 4 cameras
