The Existence of Dashcams
With modern technology and daily advancements in gadgets designed to improve and ease the strife of life it was inevitable that the dashcam came into existence. Many people are still unsure of just what this device does and exactly what its’ purpose is. The range of dashcam’s today is endless.
The most basic of dashcam’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 (available on our GoSafe 330 model). The basic idea behind every dashcam is to promote safety on the road.
- It records your driving route with the Full HD 1080P/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).
Dashcams: Providing Peace of Mind
American city dwellers are spending roughly around 60 hours a year on the road! The amount of time Americans are on the road has doubled sine 1980 and 10 percent of that time is time spent distracted by a variety of things, mostly cell phones.
Along with these facts comes higher risk of accidents. Sometimes the faulty driver can get away with causing an accident without witnesses present. With a dashcam that might all be avoided.
Here are a few more reasons to install a dashcam:
Ensures indisputable video evidence that can be used in court and by insurance agencies
Ensures your parked car records when something happens with motion detection (Available in our GoSafe 330 model)
