Gotcha! The Navig8r in car/portable High Definition digital video recorder (Crash Cam) will record everything leaving no doubt as to what happened in the event of an incident/accident. Easy to set up, simple to use and highly effective, this car DVR has 8 infrared illuminators which allows for better recording at night or in low light. The True 720p high definition video (other products are merely software enhanced ("interpolated") - to look like 720p) gives you enough detail to pick out number plates, street signs and even the faces of witnesses*. Recording in a continuous loop, the Navcam-HD turns on when you car is on and turns off when you switch off the ignition so simply "set and forget". You can even choose to leave the unit on (it has a rechargeable battery) when you're not there and the Navcam-HD will start recording as soon as it senses a movement... ideal for those times when your car is unattended in a car park. Playback of files is also a breeze. The Navcam-HD can playback content on the colour LCD and has a big speaker for clearer sound quality. Otherwise remove the SD card and plug it into your PC for HD playback or direct connect the Navcam-HD via composite cable to a TV (for SD playback). Connection cables supplied.

Why is motion detection important?
Motion detection automatically turns on and begins recording when motion is detected. Even when your car is not running and unattended, if either a burglar or another car hits yours for example, the camera will begin recording. Make sure you choose your Navig8r crashcam with Motion Detection feature to monitor your car for you.
Why do I need time stamp?
The time stamp is a very useful tool. Some of its uses are to: record the date and time of an incident for future reference, help locate sections of a recording if it is particularly long, verify when the footage was taken. It can be used as a business tool to monitor the date and time of customers visits by employees. Choose one of many Laser cameras with Time Stamp feature today.
What is the difference between batteries?
The latest development with Lithium-Ion (LI) battery technology has been the introduction of the Lithium Polymer based battery. Not only does the Lithium Polymer battery last longer, the battery is no longer limited to traditional battery cylindrical shapes. The battery can now be moulded into a customised shape to fit inside any product making it the choice for manufacturers developing the latest slimline and stylish devices. For best results and like with all other batteries, LI batteries should always have top up charges if put in storage for extended periods of time.
Can Crash Cam be used as a legal eye witness?
Crash Cam footage and any video footage such as those from security cameras or simple photos taken by smart phones are regularly used as evidence during legal proceedings. These critical pieces of evidence regularly help to collaborate accounts and can effectively been seen as another eye witness account. Invest in a Navig8r Crash Cam today to be your eye witness partner.
How much difference is there between 720p and 1080p?
These are used to describe picture resolution show the number of vertical lines. In the case of 720p, 720 lines are displayed. In the case of 1080p, 1080 lines are displayed on the screen which is probably the most common resolution on TVs today. 1080p is higher in resolution and will display a noticeably better picture.
Should I buy a SD card with the biggest memory so I can record more?
For most cameras, you want the biggest capacity SD card so you can record more. However it is not a critical requirement for crash cameras as they cycle record and continually recycle space on an existing card. The need to purchase a larger card would come down more to the cost differential between sizes and any possible second use you may have for the card when not in use for example as a camera card or as memory for another portable device.
