The new Garmin Speak Plus , revealed today at CES , has a built-in dash cam that automatically records your drives and saves video clips when an incident happens. More From The Verge. CES 2018 : what to expect from the year’s biggest tech show .

However, the addition of a camera to the Speak's compact package greatly increases the Speak Plus' utility. Like most dashcams, the Plus records a video loop of the road ahead and automatically saves a clip when an incident is detected. These video clips are useful for documenting accidents and fender-benders. However, the Speak Plus camera can also increase safety and help prevent accidents from happening.

The software powering Speak Plus' camera enables forward collision and lane departure warning, advanced driver assistance features typically found in pricey safety tech packaged on new cars, but now can be added to any car on the road just by sticking a Speak Plus on the windshield.

The forward collision warning detects cars ahead and notifies the driver when following too closely or closing in too quickly, which may cause an accident. Lane departure warning alerts the driver when drifting out of their lane or off of the road. There's even a "Go Alert" feature that lets you know when stopped traffic starts moving while you've looked away to check on the kids, for example.
