Over the past few weeks, I have been driving around my town with a dash camera and I have to admit, it takes some time getting used to. Depending on where you live, driving can either be the best or the worst time of your daily routine. As an automotive journalist, my job is to judge how fun and functional a particular vehicle is and report it.

Since pictures are worth a thousand words, videos must be worth at least a million. The dash cam enables me to record my emotions while I am behind the wheel. It also works as a second set of eyes to keep me pointing in the right direction, in order to stay out of trouble.

The dash cam I evaluated is the

Polaroid PD-G55H.

For the past six years, I have been doing all my driving without any electronic visual aids. After I mounted the dash camera onto to my windshield, it took some time for me to get used to its presence and its functions.

However, I have to admit, having this camera has made some of my driving a bit more enjoyable and a lot safer.

The Polaroid PD-G55H includes a G sensor, which automatically saves events when a collision is detected. The unit also includes a


inchLED screen which provides easy access to menus and video playbacks. The GPS software provides an easy playback option with GPS information like latitude, longitude, and other parameters.

During long highway driving, the Polaroid PD-G55H proved to be a good companion thanks to safety features like

Lane Departure Warning System,

which helps distracted drivers maintain their lanes by sending voice alerts. It sounds an alarm on the screen when the vehicle deviates from its current lane.

The camera screen also displays a speed limit warning and a voice alert is triggered when the vehicle exceeds the max speed limit set by the driver.
