A $25 dash cam could help lower your monthly car insurance

Dashboard cameras have been used to record everything from falling meteors in the Russia sky to midnight races through the streets of New York. Opportunities to become a Russian YouTube sensation aside, these devices can potentially protect you in the event of an accident, since the video they record can be used to settle disputes.

If you’re a casual driver who doesn’t require a tricked-out dash cam, our very own DT Shop currently offers the Sky Innovations DashCam Video Camera with an 8GB microSD card for $25, a savings of $70.

A cost-effective dash cam shouldn’t skimp on features. The capability to record high-definition video, for instance, could make the difference between capturing a license plate number or not. In that sense, the Sky Innovations DashCam is well prepared.

The camera records video in four resolutions: 1,920 × 1,080, 1,440 × 1,080, 1,280 × 720, and 848 × 480. The camera includes 64MB of internal memory, and Sky Innovations also bundles an 8GB microSD card. (The dash cam supports up to 32GB of additional space via the microSD slot).

The unit also features a G-sensor, which automatically begins recording whenever there is a sudden jerk or shake within the car. This could be particularly helpful if your car is hit while parked and no one is there to catch the culprit.

Beyond its video-capturing capabilities, the Sky Innovations DashCam can also capture photos, which are stored internally (or on the microSD card) as JPEGs. The device is powered by a built-in Lithium battery.

Ultimately, having a dash cam can give you better peace of mind when you’re driving. Even if you’re not looking to safeguard against reckless drivers, dash cams are a great way to document a road trip or capture unexpected moments and turn them into the next big YouTube sensation, because you never know when that meteor may fall from the sky.
