Here is our selection of four fabulous tech gadgets and devices we think you should invest in for the festive season…
1. Philips ADR 810 Dash Cam
The Philips ADR 810 Dash Cam offers peace of mind when you need it most, in a sleek modern design to fit in with your car’s interior. The automatic recording means there’s no need to spend ages setting it up each time, simply switch it on and drive, it’s as simple as that.
In case of a collision, the Dash Cam automatically saves the recording to secure your evidence and prevent it being overridden. It’s an extra level of security that means if you’re driving alone, or have a car full, there’s no argument on what happened making the whole event that much easier to handle.
A wide-angle lens (156 degrees) allows the Dash Cam to capture more of the road, along with the sharpest details with its 1080p Full HD Camera during the day and an optimised night view for when it’s dark. The Dash Cam has an instant replay function so you can quickly clarify responsibility there and then, with date and time stamped proof.
Philips ADR 810 Dash Cam is £139.99 available from www.drivesafeandlegal.co.uk
