Dash Cams for Hire or Rental Cars

Using a car camera has many benefits. At the top of that list is the fact that it helps if there is ever a crash or vandalism incident with your car. A car camera provides irrefutable evidence of what happened which helps ensure that the correct decision is made on insurance claims. It also helps insurance companies to process claims quicker which means you can move on quicker. So if having a car camera is good for your car it must be good for temporary cars too.

Helmet cameras

Riding a bicycle is enjoyable for many reasons and millions of UK residents regularly take to the roads on two-wheels. Whether to commute to places of work, escape the hustle-and-bustle of city life or to get their pulses racing in more extreme cycling activities. However, there can be downsides and, at the top of that list, are the dangers that exist when you are on a bike, compounded by the lack of protection that you get when you're in a car.

Cigarette Car Accessory Socket

If you're new to car cameras it's important to know that they get their power from the car cigarette lighter socket. Car cameras can't work off an internal battery alone because they will only last a couple of hours before running out.

Our guide to parking protection with real life footage

Parking Protection Video

Parking protection is a popular feature on many dash cams but we're often asked, just exactly, "what is it?" Does it help you park the car into a tight space? Does it record whilst you're parked? Read on for our beginners guide to parking protection or watch our video for an overview by the lovely Katie.

If you've ever returned to your car in a car park and noticed a dent in the door or even worse, dented and scratched panels, you'll immediately see the benefit parking protections can bring.

In a nutshell, parking protection is a mode on the camera which continues to record whilst you have parked and left your car. When the camera detects movement in front using motion detection or a shock using a built-in g-sensor, it will record and lock a file so you can play it back later should you need to.

If you're a parent, handing the keys to your precious car over to your 17 year old son or daughter can be a tough decision. We all know that statistically drivers under 25 are at a higher risk of being involved in a car accident and as a result we've found that many parents are turning to car cameras as a way to help improve their children's driving and reduce the risk of an accident.

We all know that statistically drivers under 25 are at a higher risk of being involved in a car accident. There are many reasons for this including lack of experience and attention, excessive speed, poorly maintained cars, night-time driving, and perhaps a false sense of confidence.
