The Existence of Dash Cams
With modern technology and daily advancements in gadgets designed to improve and ease the strife of life it was inevitable that the dash cam came into existence. Many people are still unsure of just what this device does and exactly what its’ purpose is. The range of dash cam’s today is endless.
The most basic of dash cam’s as well as the higher end models all come equipped with a G-Sensor that automatically write-protects the footage collected on the SD memory card when an accident occurs. All models continuously loop over old footage unless you choose to write-protect a certain file.
Just plug it in to you car’s cigarette lighter plug and it automatically turns on once the car is started or hardwire it to your car’s battery and utilize the motion detection feature. The basic idea behind every dash cam is to promote safety on the road.
- It records your driving route with the Full HD 1080P at 30 fps camera (available on most models)
- Guaranteed to capture everything within a 130° angle depending on the model.
- The higher end models support an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS).
