Camera’s are always on and omnipresent today. Just take a look around at people in your typical city. Many of them are recording on their mobile phones, in their cars (dash camera), in the sky (drone photography), or while doing the most trivial or exciting things (action camera). Some may wonder why we need to digitally record so much, but there are some unquestionable benefits.
Take for example car dash cameras. Dash Cams have become a traveling accessory and necessity in North America. This is due to car owners being worried about car damage, insurance fraud and about vandalism to their vehicles. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), Studies estimate almost 25% of the bodily injury claims and 10% of property and casualty claims related to auto crashes are bogus. The end result is that the average two car family pays an increase of $100 to $200 in auto premiums thanks to these scams.
Dash cam experts PAPAGO! Inc. are looking at ways to protect you and your family. The PAPAGO! GOSAFE 760 is a dual front and rear portable camera that provides consumers with a reliable high performance set of cameras at a relatively inexpensive price.
For the technically challenged, installation of the GOSAFE 760 is quite simple:
- Insert the micro SD card (before you mount) the Front camera
- Position the Suction Mount on the front screen
- Plug in the camera’s mini USB port connector cable into the Front camera
- Begin routing this cable across the interior panels, down the carpet
- When routing it across the floor ensure to make sure the cable is well hidden
- Connect the other end of the mini USB port into the Rear camera
- Mount the Rear Camera with the Sticker Mount Suction Cup
- Plug in the second (power) cable in to the Front Camera’s mini USB port
- Insert the power charger cable into the car’s cigarette lighter
The power cable provided by PAPAGO! Inc. for the GOSAFE 760 Dash Camera is longer than 13” which allows it comfortably to be installed into larger vehicles while hiding the wiring. We tested this in both a small compact and large van. I loved the Suction Mount provided for the front camera and would have preferred a smaller version for the rear camera, in place of the sticker mount suction cap provided. This feature would have made it easy to transfer cameras between vehicles without the messy tape glue.
The GOSAFE 760 has great video quality. The front camera has a 140° wide angle lens F2.0 and records video at 1080 FPS30. The rear camera has a 120° wide angle lens F4.0 and also records video at at 1080 FPS30.The lens can be adjusted up and down, so you can easily adjust it to get the best, most accurate view. During the day, video sharpness is very crisp. A great test was being able to read the license plates why moving. In the night in comparison to the day recording quality the GOSAFE 760’s video has more motion blur.
The GOSAFE 760 Dash Camera takes around 15 seconds to start up which is relatively quick. We loved some of the driver friendly features that come with the GOSAFE 760 Dash Camera including theStop Sign Recognition, Stop and Go, Driver Fatigue Warning, and a Headlight Reminder. The battery life on the GOSAFE 760 Dash Camera was approximately 40 minutes.
In summary the PAPAGO! GOSAFE 760 Dash Camera is a great dash camera, that can provide the consumer with very good video quality, excellent warning notifications and is easy to install and operate.
