Dashcams seem frivolous until you’re in a situation where you want to have one. If you get back-ended, wind up in an accident that’s not your fault, or somebody decides to shatter your window and steal your change of spare, a dash cam can have your back. For anyone driving for a rideshare service such as Uber or Lyft, that goes double.
Fortunately, today you can snag the Vava Dash Cam at Amazon for just $73.09 by clicking the coupon on its product page and then entering the TGE7UE4B promotion code during checkout. Usually, it would cost you $120 and without a coupon it has never dropped below its current selling price of $99. With 4.7 out of 5 stars collectively, customer reviews are very positive.
This model captures video at 60 frames per second in crystal-clear 1080p resolution. The lens can also rotate so that footage can be captured inside or outside your car. Combined with the free VAVA Dash App, the built-in Wi-Fi allows you to play, download, or share videos. For increased night visibility, there are built-in infrared lights, and your location and speed are accurately tracked by the GPS.
There is also an integrated gravity sensor that starts recording automatically when impact is detected. Even if you’re away from your car, if something or somebody gets close to your vehicle, the camera will capture footage. On your dashboard or windshield, the camera can be mounted. A full 18-month warranty supports your purchase. To add additional storage, you might want to pick up a microSD card.
