Get a dash cam.
Weird stuff happens when you’re out driving around.
There’s odd-weird, like when there was that brief creepy clown epidemic a few years back. There’s also fishy-weird, like the guy rolling up onto your hood and pretending you just hit him in the crosswalk. (That’s also known as insurance-fraud-weird.)
In both cases—and plenty of others—you’re going to want to have some footage. Creepy clowns are social media gold. A simple insurance fraud video can save you untold legal grief. Either scenario can make you plenty glad that you bought that dashcam from SideDeal.
Besides, with a phone always handy, when you’re driving is pretty much the only time you don’t have a camera on the ready if something troubling or unusual starts happening. And if you do see some weirdness in traffic, the last thing you want is to be fumbling for your phone or trying to record while driving.
A good dashcam will keep an eye on things like that so you don’t have to. Or, you still do have to… because you’re driving… but… well, you know what we’re saying, right?
Anyway, this one will grab a wide viewing angle that also allows you to easily spin the whole thing 360 degrees if it doesn’t happen to be pointing where you want it to point.
It’ll automatically save the footage if it senses you’ve been in a crash and will smartly overwrite old videos if it is running out of space for something new. If you leave it set up when you’re away from the car, it’ll also automatically start recording if it senses that someone is messing with your vehicle thanks to motion and vibration detection.
It’s just a great little unit at a great price. It also has the added benefit of letting you generate some cool and interesting footage as much of the country starts getting a little close to the bottom of the barrel of the Netflix queue.
