A new range of HD dash cameras from Swann, including the Navigator and Economy, offer G-sensor accident detection that detects sudden acceleration, collisions and safeguards from fraudulent insurance claims by triggering a recording of the events.
The Navigator HD Dash Camera has a wide-angle 140° lens that records full HD 1,080p video, photos and audio in real-time, with the ability to capture license plates. The camera auto-records when the engine is turned on and when motion is detected. The included GPS locator tracks exact movements and places, with detailed time and location data stamped on the footage. Using the Navigator GPS software on a computer or tablet, users can also easily check driving routes and speed information on the map.
The Navigator only takes a few minutes to set up, says Swann, easily suction mounting to the vehicle's windscreen. It connects via USB to transfer footage to a computer, as well as to recharge the device.
Each box includes a Navigator HD Dash Camera, car suction mount, car charger, 13-foot cable and USB-to-Mini USB cable. It sells for US$150.
Like the Navigator, the step-down Economy offers full HD 1,080p video and audio in real-time, USB connectivity, a wide-angle 140° lens, auto recording, and easy setup. It comes with an 11-foot power cable, for US$80.
