The need for Dash Cams is rising as more and more insurance companies offer discounts if you have one. Having one of these in your car could be the difference between proving innocence, or, spending a fortune on premiums for a crash you had no fault in.
There are many available on the market today since their meteoric rise in Russia but this one in particular caught my eye.
The Goluk T1 Wireless Wi-Fi Smartphone Control Dash Cam, which is available on Amazon for $130, is a pretty impressive piece of kit for the price.
It is very compact, sports no controls on the camera itself, and all features are usable through the app on your smartphone which connects to the cam wirelessly.
The app is called Goluk, where you can view live-feed, library etc. As long as it is powered with a battery pack you can use it anywhere, which is great!
Simplicity is key to this device, plug it in, connect to the phone and away you go.
The camera will store all info recorded until you actually choose to delete it. At present there is a watermark logo at the top left of the recordings. The company have explained that this will be removable when the app is updated later this year. On a side note, there will also be an action cam mount available later, though I have no idea how good this will be as the cam view angle is quite wide and distorts things a little.
The cam comes with a separate remote control button. This button can be pressed to instantly record 12 seconds of time and take a snapshot.
Here are the key features:
