Are dash cams worth it?

Australian T3 - - GADGET GURU -

AWhat price do you put on se­cu­rity, safety, or the pos­si­bil­ity of cap­tur­ing footage of a crazy me­teor strike while you’re trundling along the M2? Of course it’s worth it. De­cent dash cams are leav­ing China by the con­tain­er­load, so while we think you should plump for Garmin’s Dash Cam 55 ($238) you could get good re­sults with the Yi Smart Dash Cam­era ($54).

Your in­sur­ance will get cheaper and, as long as you in­stall the cam prop­erly, you’ll not even no­tice it’s there. One caveat, though: GaGu’s ex­pe­ri­ences at­tempt­ing to run the ca­bling for a rear-fac­ing cam­era were so neg­a­tive he was in­clined to dash the thing onto the pave­ment.

With a dash cam in your car you have the pos­si­bil­ity of cap­tur­ing footage of a crazy me­teor strike as you trun­dle along the M2.
