WHAT ARE DASH CAMS?

A dashboard camera, or dash cam, is an in-car digital camcorder which is designed to be mounted on the windscreen with a suction cup.

It has a wide angle lens to capture virtually everything in field-of-view which is in front of the car.

The dash cam records video whilst you drive, and the footage is extremely useful for several reasons including when you need evidence to support you after a road accident, analysing your performance whilst learning to drive and even just capturing a scenic route whilst you're driving along.

WHY INVEST IN A DASH CAM?

  • Supporting evidence in the unfortunate event of an accident
  • Prove you are a responsible driver to bring down insurance premiums
  • Report irresponsible drivers / road rage
  • Protection for your vehicle whilst it is parked
  • Record your driving performance
  • Monitor your fleet vehicles
  • Record road trips and holidays
  • Capture footage on scenic drives
  • Share fun or unlikely events with your friends and family

KEY FEATURES TO LOOK FOR

  • Integrated GPS

    Track your position wherever you go. Record your location, speed and direction and display the recorded information in Google Maps™ when you playback the video

  • Bright lens

    The lower the 'f number' of the lens, e.g. f1.8, the more light can be let in resulting in brighter videos - ideal in low light situations

  • Integrated microphone

    Allows you to record audio inside your vehicle

  • G-Sensor

    This records direction and force, including impact, turns and acceleration. Helps you to 'tag' accidents so you can retrieve the information from the hard-drive at a later stage

  • Wide angle lens

    The wider the angle of view, e.g. 130°, the more of the scene in front of you the camera will be able to capture

  • Auto-start

    Camera will start recording as soon as you switch on the ignition

  • Photo Mode

    This gives you the option to capture still images as well as video, which could be very useful in an accident or incident in the road

  • Revolving mounting cradle

    Position the video camera in any direction

  • Auto-overwrite

    If the memory is full, the camera will automatically over-write footage that you no longer need, if you select this option
