Keeping video documentation of your mishaps

| May 31, 2013

20130531-101845.jpgDash cams aren’t new, but they are gaining some traction in the industry — especially for some fleets — among those looking for a little protection in case a crash or other incident is wrongly blamed on them.

On display at The Great West Truck Show this week is one being marketed to drivers — the Truck Cam, which keeps forward-facing high-def video records of the last 24 hours the truck has been driven.

It has a built-in GPS unit that keeps location synced with the video and automatically starts and stops recording. It saves mp4 files to a removable 64-gigabyte memory card.

Pictured above is the RoadHawk HD camera, which is the one being shown at GWTS.
