I have had my Toyota Corolla ever since I was in college back in 2003. While it was relatively state of the art for its time (it had a CD player AND a tape deck), time obviously goes on. Now everything is automated and fully computerized. Our newest car does not even accept physical media unless you count plugging in my phone or connecting by Bluetooth.
While many of these changes are pretty superficial and concern entertainment (I honestly liked having my little binder of CDs in my car), there are certain improvement in safety that I wished the car had. Unfortunately, short of buying a new car, there is only so much that can be spent on improvements.
Recently we got to try out the Magellan MiVue 480D DashCam, which basically allows you to integrate some of those key safety features that older cars don’t have.
The MiVue 480D gives you access to the following:
- Front and rear full HD Cameras
- Safety features: Lane departure warnings; Forward collision warning and driver fatigue warnings
- The cameras are easy to install (even for a car novice like me), though my biggest issue was finding the best places to hide the wires so that they don’t become a distraction
- Impact G-Sensors which starts recording when the camera senses a collision about to happen including the location, time and data in the video
