GPS Dash Cam
Do I need GPS on my Dash Cam?
GPS can be vital in the event of an incident. It provides useful information, such as road names and where other vehicles are located at the time of an incident. This can be useful after an incident has taken place on an unfamiliar road, with details often difficult to remember after the fact.
GPS will also show the speed travelled, displayed in mph or km/h depending on the user’s preference. This can also prove to be valuable information in the event of an accident. On playback, the footage will show speed limit signs and road names to aid the driver’s case and help prove they were not at fault. The speed picked up by GPS satellites when driving can often provide more accurate information than a vehicle’s speedometer. Now you can do all of this with a GPS dash cam.

Useful for young drivers
The GPS dash cam can be useful for young or first-time drivers as they will know their speed and location is being recorded, which in turn can encourage better driving. Driving instructors may also wish to use GPS data to review and demonstrate speed to students after lessons.
