Last year, I made the choice to finally use a dedicated dash cam in my car permanently. My choice for this was the PAPAGO! GoSafe 272. So far, it’s served its purpose quite well, though most of what I’ve captured daily has been pretty boring, not like all those Russian dashcam vids you see on Youtube. This year, PAPAGO! is releasing some brand new dashcams in the form of the GoSafe 268 and GoSafe 388. There’s also the GoSafe S30 but that will be a discussion in another post.
The GoSafe 388 is designed to capture the entire road without taking up space on your windshield. Made with ionized molecular material to prevent bacteria build-up this micro-sized dash cam records in high quality 1080HD and 142° angle, so you are certain to capture everything in your path. The motion detection feature protects your vehicle from any mishaps during your absence while the Stop & Go, Light Reminder, and Driver Fatigue warning features help keep you focused on the road. The optional GPS antenna will help track your location and speed. Record those important instances with amazing footage and precision.
The flagship model to be released early this year is the GoSafe 268. This model mounts onto the mirror replacing the stock rearview mirror. The LCD screen is embedded into the mirror with an easy user interface. The Sony sensor and high-quality mirror lens will provide the top video quality in every lighting situation and climate, while supporting up to a 64GB Micro SD card. Unlike any other dash cam on the market the GoSafe 268 has the parking guard feature, which will allow the dashcam to record 10 second videos when the device feels a bump or is hit in anyway, with or without a power supply when the battery is fully charged. This innovative design is the only one in its class.
Both of these will be available in the near future. Until then, PAPAGO! has a variety of dashcam models currently available that will fit any need and budget. If there’s anything I’ve learned from watching dashcam vids, it’s that the dashcam never lies.
