With road rage and bad driving seemingly becoming the norm on today's roads, the perfect gift for Father's Day is a DriveSense dash cam.
Dash cams " or car dashboard cameras " are increasingly being used in vehicles to insure drivers against adverse outcomes on roads and in car parks.
Dad's love their cars so if they are involved in a crash and they weren't at fault, dash cam footage can be provided to the insurance company to prove it. Even if his car is hit in a car park, whether he was there or not, the dash cam can record the event.
Using a dash cam is like having an extra insurance policy and can protect the affected driver's finances. It's also a big time-saver as the evidence allows the insurance company to chase the other car's owner for compensation.
DriveSense Ranger dash cams produce crisp clear video recordings, and audio if desired, including other information such as location, date, time and speed.
Leading Australian safety products company, Andatech, has introduced new DriveSense Ranger dash cams that use the latest generation technology and provide exceptional camera quality.
G-sensor detects vibrations
Ensuring the video footage is protected when needed is crucial, which is assisted by the gravity sensor (G-sensor) in the device. DriveSense dash cams have a built-in G-sensor that uses indicators such as vibrations and sudden jolting motions to alert the user to protect the recorded file so it cannot be deleted or overwritten. The G-sensor sensitivity can be set to low, medium, high or switched off completely.
A film file can also be manually selected to lock or protect, which is then saved in a separate folder in the microSD card and cannot be deleted.
Andatech's two dash cam models comprise the DriveSense Ranger Dash Cam with WiFi and GPS ($249) and the DriveSense Ranger Duo Dash Cam ($299), which has both a front and rear dash cam with GPS.
Features of the DriveSense Ranger dash cams include:
* Recording in high resolution super HD 1080p at 30 frames per second to ensure it will pick up details such as licence plate numbers.
* 1.5 or 2-inch LCD colour screen that is lightweight and compact without blocking the field of view.
* A built-in accelerometer that records the speed of the vehicle while driving and is shown in every video recording.
* 150-degree wide angle view with six-layer glass and infrared vision that provides an excellent field of view, comfortably covering up to five lanes of traffic.
* 4x digital zoom to check details of licence plates, road signs and street names and large f/2.0 aperture, which provides vivid recordings under low light conditions and clear images even at night.
* Ability to record videos in 3, 5 or 10 minute segments or continuously.
Once the memory is full, the dash cam will start writing over older files seamlessly (excluding locked files).
DriveSense dash cams have auto start up and shut down and users can enable or disable motion detection.
Following the easy installation, it can connect directly to a smartphone for viewing and downloading files using the free DriveSense app.
Andatech's dash cams provide crisp clear recordings, full functionality and connectivity for an easy, seamless user experience. Both units come with a 32GB micro SD card and one-year warranty.
