In situations where there is no suitable dashboard mounting location for the camera, it is permissible to mount the tablet on the windshield in an area swept by the windshield (needed for dashcam visibility in rain) either:
“Not more than 100 mm (4 inches) below the upper edge of the area swept by the windshield wipers” “Not more than 175 mm (7 inches) above the lower edge of the area swept by the windshield wipers”
This update to 49 CFR 393.60(e) was made in 2015 by the FAST act highway bill, to allow “vehicle safety technologies” to be mounted in areas swept by the windshield wipers (ie, giving them road visibility in the rain). Vehicle safety technology is defined in 49 CFR 393.5 as:
“Vehicle safety technology includes a fleet-related incident management system, performance or behavior management system, speed management system, lane departure warning system, forward collision warning or mitigation system, active cruise control system, and transponder.”
The Garmin tablet, and any external dash-cams, would qualify as ‘incident management systems’, and the tablet in particular which also has forward collision warning and lane departure features (which may be part of the reason these two features were included in the product by Garmin). This may be the best option in split-windshield trucks which severely limit dash mounting options.
The $30/mo subscription service covers wireless data fees to allow the tablet to upload videos of safety events (up to 150 MB/mo).
The Garmin Tablet and Carmalink Transponder are equipped with Wireless 4G LTE modems to connect over cellular networks.
