In-Car Camera Catches Careless Driving

The pitch reads like this: ‘The new Car Cam Voyager with LCD is the first vehicle camera to let you see exactly what is happening in real-time while you’re driving.’


You may have thought that the windshield did a pretty good job of letting ‘you see exactly what is happening in real-time while you’re driving’, but the reality is that you now need a camera to do it for you. Of course, the Car Cam Voyager with LCD doesn’t aim to replace the glass window at all. Instead it is there to provide you with ammunition in the inevitable legal shenanigans that accompany auto-accidents in the US.


The camera sits on your dash (or hangs from the ceiling) and records everything that goes on — other people cutting you up as well as every red light you run. The footage comes in at 720 x 480 and is saved to a microSD card, and if you spring for 32GB of storage you’ll have space for 48 hours of video. The whole thing is powered by the cigarette lighter and unless you opt for a mount, you don’t have to do any installation.


The unit will cost $400, and this might be the thing that kills it: For $400 you can buy a regular camera, and although it won’t plug into the lighter socket, adapters can be bought. This should instead be combined with a GPS unit, thus making it a set and forget option on something you always have on the dash anyway.
