    Garmin Mini 2

    Have bought the Garmin Mini 2 Dash cam and planning on getting it installed by Halfords this week. Before I book a slot, I was looking at getting the parking adapter. Is this still required with a proper installation or only if using through USB/lighter?

    Persistent alerts on Garmin?

    I've got a Samsung watch and there is an accessibility setting which allows persistent notifications, e.g. if a text is received the watch will vibrate periodically until the text is accessed.

    Apple Watch vs Garmin

    I’m looking to get a smart watch that can play music without the need for a phone. I’ve narrowed it down to the Apple Watch and the garmin forerunner 235 music. Anyone used both?

    Terrible halos and reflections on Garmin 66W?

    I've been using a cheap e-prance dashcam for about 6-7 years. This year I saw a Garmin 66W on sale for a really good price, so I grabbed it as an upgrade. It's supposed to be 1440 HDR so I figured that it must be much better than the upscaled 1024 on my e-Prance, but I'm getting terrible halos...

    Apple Watch & Garmin Connect Steps?

    I wear a Garmin device for steps and obviously other things! However, I would like a nicer watch for day to day use. So, the question is, can my step count on the Apple watch be sent to Garmin Connect as that is where I collate my data? Thanks

    Question Garmin Basecamp alternatives?

    We have a Garmin Nuvi and we're going to the USA in the summer. I thought I'd have a go at creating a route on the PC and loading it onto the Garmin. Garmin have a bit of software to do this, called Basecamp. But I find it impossibly difficult to use despite having watched tutorials (most of...
