Laser has released the Navig8r Crash Cam Pro X which is designed to help Australian drivers avoid fines and also provide video evidence in the event of a traffic dispute or accident.
The device, which fits on your windscreen, has a high definition 16-megapixel 165-degree camera to capture the road ahead of you and a 2-inch screen on the back to give you a view of your location on a map.
On the screen, drivers can see their actual speed – as measured by GPS – along upcoming speed cameras and red light cameras.
It even shows Australian school zones and provides alerts at the times of the day when the slower speeds come into effect.
The Crash Cam Pro X even knows that fact that Sydney school zones drop to 40km/h between 8am and 9.30am and between 2.30pm to 4pm and that South Australia has an all-day 25km/h speed limit around schools.
The device’s camera can capture 1296p high resolution footage which distortion correction for even clearer videos day or night.
In the event of an incident, the video is time and location stamped to fast track insurance claims or back up your side of the story if an incident is disputed.
The Navig8r Crash Cam Pro X even works when the car is parked with sensors triggering the camera to record an incident like someone hitting your unattended vehicle.
The Navig8r Crash Cam Pro X is available from Harvey Norman and www.laserco.com.au and priced at $349.95.
