Dash cams may seem frivolous until you find yourself in a situation wishing you'd had one. If you get rear-ended, wind up in an accident that isn't your fault, or someone decides to shatter your window and steal your spare change, a dash cam can have your back. That goes double for anyone driving for a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft.
Luckily, today you can snag this VAVA Dual Dash Cam for $94.99 at Amazon when you clip the coupon on its product page and then enter promo code NMKZFYK9 during checkout. Usually, it'd cost you $150, meaning today's deal saves you $55 off the normal price. The customer reviews are very positive and this deal matches the lowest price we've ever seen for this camera kit. While $95 might seem like a hefty investment, your car's worth a lot more than what you're paying today, and a little extra insurance never hurt anybody.
This model captures video in crystal-clear 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second. It'll capture footage both inside and outside your vehicle, so you'll catch both messy Uber passengers and messy drivers in front of you. The built-in Wi-Fi combined with the free VAVA Dash App gives you access to play, download, or share videos. There are built-in infrared lights for enhanced night visibility, and the GPS accurately tracks your location and speed.
There's also a built-in gravity sensor that automatically starts recording when an impact is detected. Even if you're away from your car, the camera will capture footage if something or someone gets close to your vehicle. The camera can be mounted on your dashboard or windshield. Your purchase is backed by a full 18-month warranty. If you don't have an extra around, be sure to pick up a microSD card.
