We now have mapping apps that are capable of turn-by-turn directions, up to the minute traffic updates, and even crowdsourced updates as well as machine learning models for improved navigation.
Today I follow up on 2 recent dashboard camera articles by other Bloggers (such as Dashcam 101: What you need to know to get started by Paliontology) to let you know what general features you can expect to find within each of 3 dashcam price / quality ranges. I selected the ranges myself and will confess that they are completely arbitrary, but they should give you some idea of what you can expect to receive in either a low, a medium, or a high end dashcam. So if you’ve been thinking of joining the dashcam revolution, step on in and learn all about this awesome emerging technology!
A Dashcam can be a great new addition to your car. Whether you want to capture your adventures, or want some in-car security, a Dashcam can be a fun and inexpensive add-on to your daily drive. Best Buy now offers a full range, including names like Papago, Blackvue and even The Original Dash Cam. Come find out and learn more about Dashcams.
If you own an Apple iPhone and a vehicle, your in-car experience is about to get the upgrade you’ve been waiting for. Apple’s CarPlay—the ultimate hands-free, iPhone-powered experience—is now available in Canada. Even better, you don’t have to buy a new car to get it! Pioneer’s NEX multimedia systems are your first chance to get Apple’s CarPlay in your own vehicle. You can give your vehicle the sound system you always wanted, while also gaining integrated Apple Maps, hands-free calling and messaging, your music, third party apps and Siri voice control with Pioneer NEX.
For some, the car is more than just a tool, it’s a way of life. There are commuters on the road, parents shuttling kids from long school days to endless activities, and road trippers for whom a traffic jam is an opportunity to slow down and take it all in. No matter which profile you fit, there are gadgets you can stash in your car to make life easier.
Put technology to work while you’re driving and give yourself that extra bit of security. The Thinkware Dashcam sits in your dashboard acting as your silent witness on the road, recording events you can review later.
Getting around by car may be the easiest form of transportation, but it’s certainly not the most economical… especially when parking and gas is costing you an arm and a leg! Nowadays, there are plenty of options to choose from that will not only save you money and time, but also amp up the vitamin D in your daily commute. Here are a few of my favourite alternative personal transportation methods worth checking out: the electric bicycle, scooter, and unicycle.
Distracted driving has become a big problem now that we all have smartphones. With all your music on your phone, texts coming in nonstop, directions to where you are going right there on your phone display and the occasional voice call coming in, it’s really tempting to pick up that iPhone and look. Don’t do it. Using a hand held device while driving a vehicle is illegal in every province (except Nunavut). And it’s just plain dangerous. However, there is a solution and a pretty elegant one at that. Upgrade your in-car entertainment system with a new Pioneer audio deck and go hands-free!
