Which? review that highlights not all Dash-Cams are equal
WITH car insurance scams such as
for cash' on the rise in the UK, dashboard cameras are becoming
increasingly popular amongst British drivers. As more and more
people are recognising the benefit of installing these devices; for
their ability to provide proof of fault following a collision and
reduce insurance premiums; many motorists are not aware of the
features and benefits that set apart the good from the bad.
Thankfully, due to the rapidly expanding market for in car cameras
(aka 'Dash-Cams') consumer association Which? recently
launched an investigation to find out which are the best on the
market. Reviewing 14 different cameras, testing them for their video
quality, intrusiveness on space, ease of use and price tag, the
camera that came out on top was the Nextbase iN-car camera 402G.
Bryn Brooker, Marketing Manager from Nextbase, a British based
company, said:- "We welcome the Which? report that shines a
spotlight on the benefits of in-car cameras while providing
invaluable customer advice on how to choose the best one for their
needs. It also shows that a high price is not necessarily a
guarantee of good quality and products like our own 402G represent
excellent value, whilst also delivering peace of mind. The
402G is one of 3 models in our range of in-car cameras and we are
continuing to invest in research and development to maintain our
edge over the competition. The importance of having these in-car
cameras is becoming more obvious each day, with the devices not only
providing UK drivers with an independent witness- but also as we see
awareness of the product increase, we hope to see the road safety
standards improve and fraudulent crashes and claims decline."
The Which? report compared the Nextbase 402G to cameras from GoPro,
Mio and Garmin (to name, but a few) and the 402G was particularly
noted for its price tag, ease of removal and use, and superior video
RAISE FUNDS IN MEMORY OF YOUNG SISTER
THE tragic death of their
sister at 23 prompted a Liverpool family to take part in a SUBWAY
Helping Hearts™ Family 5K at Heaton Park, Manchester to help raise
money for national charity Heart Research UK.
Kaylea Holmes, from Speke, was just 23 when she collapsed from a
heart condition on New Year's Day 2013 and later died. She'd
suffered from dilated cardiomyopathy where the heart becomes
weakened and enlarged.
5 months earlier she had given birth to a daughter, Lacey, and
because the heart condition can be hereditary, the Holmes family
have all been through tests to make sure they haven't also got
Kaylea's family; brother Craig and sister Sarah; along with close
friends recently completed the SUBWAY Helping Hearts™ Family 5K at
Heaton Park, Manchester to help raise money for national charity
Heart Research UK. It was their first fund-raising event together in Kaylea's memory.
Now they want to raise awareness of Kaylea's heart problem and
funding for research into what is a condition that doesn't always
produce significant symptoms.
Kaylea's brother Craig, 24, a forklift truck driver, said they were
all devastated by her death and wanted to do something to help
others. He said:- "The 5K event is the first thing we have
done together as a family since Kaylea's death. I don't want any
other families going through what we have gone through so if it
helps to save just one more person's life at least it gives another
family the chance that we never had."
