There are several great reasons that you should have a dash camera for your vehicles. First, because these handy devices can act as an eyewitness account in the event that there’s an accident and it turns into a he said/she said type of situation.
Second, you can use a dash cam as proof of your innocence. If someone in another vehicle claims you did something wrong while driving, you can have proof that you didn’t – and this can help keep you out of any legal trouble.
Third, having a dash cam can help provide a backup in the event someone tries to get you with insurance fraud – like if they claim that you bumped their car in a parking lot when you know good and well that you didn’t.
And finally, what a lot of parents love about having a dash cam for is to check up on how their teenagers are driving. When they know they’re being watched, teenagers will handle a car a lot more carefully and avoid taking chances that could lead to accidents.
With all of the different kinds of dash cams available, it can be hard to choose which one to go with, but there are some features that you want to make sure your model does have.
The Wide Angle Mobius ActionCam 1080p HD Camera with Dash Cam Kit offers something you want – clear recording ability. This one does has crisp visuals – plus, it can record at night.
You get a lot of choices when it comes to the settings and it does come with the mounting hardware (some don’t). It can record at three different rates and it’s already factory configured – so you don’t have to do that.
It can hold an SD card of up to 32 GB and the card does come with the kit, unlike some others that make you buy it separately. There’s also the PAPAGO GS200-US GoSafe 200 Full HD 1080P that’s a clip mount.
This device can be mounted right onto the rearview mirror of your vehicle, which keeps it out of your way. Because it’s tucked behind the mirror, it’s discreet enough to not be as noticeable as some other models are.
The screen can slide so that you can hide it. The camera lens itself is made of glass so you get sharper resolution – plus, it’s a sturdier camera. Even if you leave it out in your car in hot weather, it won’t hurt the camera.
This model also offers the GPS antenna accessory. This means that you’ll be able to pinpoint your coordinates to accurately show where any situation happened as well as how fast or slow you were going.
