What Makes a Good Dash Cam?

Technology has given everyone the opportunities to live their lives to the fullest with comfort and ease. One of the best and helpful devices that you need to give you daily comfort is dash cam. What is a dash cam and how does it work? Dash cams are basically cameras equipped to the front and sometimes back of your vehicle to give you a good view of what is happening and an eye witness during car accidents.

Before getting yourself a dash cam, make sure to know the things that you have to consider in purchasing one. Listed below are the basic things you have to check on the product:

  1. Video/Audio Quality

You purposely buy a dash cam to keep an eye on what is happening on the road or to basically have an eye witness on incidents such as accidents on your travels. Thus, when you try to get yourself one, be sure to check the video and audio quality first before anything else. Check the camera resolution to ensure that the product is of good quality or not.

  1. Quick Installation

Go for a product which gives you a little time in installing it to the car that you are driving. These days, you can always get a product which is ready to use once you take it out from its box.

  1. Ease of Use

Since there are lots of options to choose from, you have to bear in mind that there are dash cams which has lots of unnecessary buttons and features which would give you confusion and hassle when using it. However, there are other products which has many features and buttons but with very organized and uncomplicated menu system. So, try to get a dash cam which would suit your preference.

  1. Good safety features and Functions

Although the main purpose of dash cams is to provide you good footages on the road, other suppliers have manufactured products which would maximize its use. Hence, several functions like GPS, Bluetooth, G-sensor and Wi-fi are featured to some dash cams. Yes, they may seem to be unnecessary but you can really make use of this features to maximize the device’s operations.

G-sensor warns you if you are too close to the car or object in front or at the back or even when you veer out of your lane. This is very helpful in your travels and during parking. Moreover, the GPS feature gives you the safety camera alerts. Now, you might ask what the WiFi is for. Well, this feature allows you to install an app which would let you view the video footages from your phone or even your laptop. With this, you would be able to save files to your computer without removing the memory card.

  1. Expandable storage through microSD

Every dash cam will record on a loop; however, it is also necessary for you to secure a high-storage capacity device which would record footages especially in long travels. Remember, that if your device records HD videos, this requires bigger storage.  Prevention is better than cure, so consider this one in your purchase checklist.

 

 

I love my Swegway, and why you should get one too

If you have yet to catch on with the latest trends then you’re about to learn the new gadget sweeping the nation.

The Swegway, no that’s no a mistype of segway is the great new floating board. Loads of outlets including Swegway Boards UK have caught onto the trend and started selling them at great prices.

Made popular by a group of online celebs the sideman, swegways are essentially a cross between a segway and skateboard combined with lights to create the ultimate transportation device proiding you the illusion of floating.

They come in various colours, although my favourite is the black one, the swegway is fast becoming the ultimate gadget this year which every Tom, Dick and Harry wants. And I can see why as only having mine for a week I don’t actually know how I would’ve survived without it, it has made me so lazy as I glide around the flat at Uni and have even started using it to take me to classes.

Seriously if you’ve yet to try one I would highly recommend it, it’s so much fun.
