Car video recorder – indispensable in the car

The car dvr is a unique camera designed specifically for drivers. It is mainly used to record sound and images in the best possible way during day or night. Depending on the model, it can record not only what is in front of the car (view through the windscreen), but also in the passenger compartment (second lens facing inwards) or behind the vehicle (rear window camera additional). And that’s not all.

Contrary to appearances, much more can be expected from a dash cam. Many models also serve as a parking event recorder. Therefore, it is easier to determine the author not only of a small dent, but also of a vandal who scratched the paint on the body. Above all, the camera works in such a way as to avoid draining the battery in the car. Just use a special power adapter to use parking mode without worrying about engine starting problems after a long standstill.

Any video can be used as proof of innocence. It will be useful not only in the event of a collision or accident (then the camera recognizes the overload and saves files with protection against deletion), but also as evidence in the event of charges of entering a red light on a device signals, enforce the right of way or be inattentive when changing lanes. This is not the end. If we choose a video recorder with an integrated GPS module, the camera will indicate and record our speed and warn us against exceeding the speed limit and with speed cameras. We remind you that a moment of inattention (for example during a phone call via the on-board loudspeaker) can currently cost up to several thousand zlotys, taking into account the prices of the last ticket fare. And in addition to the hefty fine, penalty points are often imposed.

A good dash cam can also be used as a real advanced driving assistant. Selected models recognize unintentional lane crossings, remind about the departure of the vehicle in front (ideal solution for everyone who was in a traffic jam and did not notice moving cars), inform about the need to turn on the lights or warn against section speed measures. There are also devices that connect to the smartphone app. The application will be useful not only for remote control of the video recorder. Recorded movies can also be instantly downloaded from the camera directly to the smartphone.

Contrary to appearances, a good VCR does not cost a fortune. Great gear is also affordable. You just have to take advantage of promotions as attractive as in the EURO RTV AGD network. Some models can be purchased with a discount of up to 40%. It is also worth contacting specialists in the store, who will advise you on which model will work best in the indicated car. Here are some of the proposals from the network’s latest promotion:
