At last there is a decent car camera available which will record what happens outside and inside the car. It not only gives you video and sound, but the exact GPS location of any incident, using Google Maps. Essential for police evidence, the time and date is also recorded.
If you are accused of running a red light, or now with the new law change, an orange light, you have dated and timed proof to prove your innocence.
The camera also records driving speeds so that you can have proof of the speed you were travelling. If you aren’t the one driving the car, again you have a video of the inside of the car so your licence doesn’t get penalised.
However careful you are when out on the road the same can’t be said for other road users. If someone for instance cuts you up causing an accident, you would be able to show the true story via your camera recording.
If you are in a contact accident the movement triggers the camera to record a new file on the Micro SD card, marking it as sensor recording. This file is not overwritten like normal files, but only when the card is reformatted on your computer.
If a child or animal steps straight out in front of you without warning, you would want to be able to prove you weren’t negligent, wouldn’t you?
Whatever the incident it could prove very costly with your insurance company, the police or both. The cost of protection would be worth it when you consider months of law cases or the stress of being wrongly accused.
If you employ sales reps, drivers or are one yourself the camera could be invaluable for recording your journey for your protection in any number of situations.
Many of you will remember the episode of The Simpsons when Homer reaches for a gummy bear that had stuck to the bottom of a lady who he was giving a lift to. He pulled it free without thinking and had the whole town after him for inappropriate behaviour. When giving a work colleague or baby sitter a lift home or picking up a hitch hiker or maybe picking up the neighbours children from school, how it would be if you were accused unjustly of inappropriate behaviour? Not many car cameras record what is going on inside the car and this could be the protection you might need one day.
We all know that some teenagers may not be as responsible as they could be when borrowing the family car. The recordings would show you straight away if they are driving whilst texting, drinking alcohol, speeding or filling the car up with rowdy mates! You have the choice of having the voice recording feature turned off or on as you wish.
The car cam only runs when the ignition is on so unfortunately it won’t record willful damage to a parked car. Having said that the features it has will help in so many possible situations that it could be worth its weight in gold.
You can probably think of a number of other things that might happen that you need protection for. Click this link to find out more features of this very useful tool…
