does seem to be good if all you want is a dash-cam. There do appears to be some cheap knock-offs around however.
Now the Garmin Nuvicam is first and foremost a GPS for driving, and BTW, the best one I have ever seen. The GPS features are extensive. The integrated dash-cam records audio (if you wish) along with speed, location and date/time. It even has a forward collision warning (about useless) and a lane assist function (not useless) which use the camera image. Reliability and attraction to thieves should both be high. Hard to say if it's worth the price, but you do get what you pay for.
I could see adding the G1W as a rear facing camera, along with my Garmin in the dash.
