Those looking for an easy way of keeping an eye on their children in the back seat need look no further. The babyCam isn’t a traditional dash cam in that it’s designed to allow you to see someone sitting in the rear of your vehicle via the screen on your Sat Nav.
Powered by either two AA batteries or a mini-USB cable, the babyCam attaches to the metal rods of an extending head rest. In order to use the device, you’ll also need a Garmin satnav, and you can check the Garmin website for a list of compatible devices. Once you’ve paired the camera with your Sat Nav it’s simply a case of tapping the camera icon that appears on your satnav to bring up a view from the babyCam.
With a 640 x 480 resolution and 30fps, the babyCam won’t be recording the clearest picture you’ve ever seen, but it’s more than good enough for checking up on your kids to make sure everything is ok. The camera also manages to perform well in varying light conditions, and features a Night Mode too, so you don’t need to worry about not being able to use it after dark.
Garmin’s device does what it sets out to do and integrates well with compatible satnavs. At £130, it’s not the most affordable offering, but if you’re the owner of a Garmin satnav and looking for an easy way to check up on your kids in the back seat, this is a great option.
At time of review the Garmin babyCam was available for £169.99
