Consumer vehicles today are rolling off the line with all kinds of teched-out features. Some of them are questionable, like screens on your dashboard that let you watch movies while you drive or cars that let you turn them on remotely from a hundred feet away. Some are actually really useful. The backup camera, for one, which has saved the butts of millions of drivers everywhere who never learned how to parallel park properly.
That doesn’t mean you should go running to buy a new Tesla, per se. (Besides, they need to get that pricing locked down.) Maybe you like your old-school analog vehicle with the chrome rims and butter-smooth transmission. That’s no reason to forego a tech add-on though.
The Papago GoSafe 366 Dash Cam is designed for easy usability, thanks to its big 3.5-inch touchscreen. Most importantly, this primo camera will record in 140-degree wide angle and 1080P HD, resulting in footage that captures everything in pristine quality no matter the time of day (thank you, night vision feature). Not only does it work as a front-facing camera, but as a handy back-up cam too.
This is also a good time to mention it records 24/7. On the road, no accident will be left unfilmed, resulting in valuable footage for insurance disputes. And while your car is parked? You can view live footage right on your phone thanks to the cam’s WiFi capabilities, perfect for when you happen to be in a questionable part of town. Can your friends’ fancy movie-playing, remotely self-starting car handle that?
This dash cam is valued at $299.99, but you can snag it on sale for $249.99 — that’s $50 off for a limited time.
