For the Entertaining Driver With a Ton of Stories from the Road

Cobra CDR 900 Professional Dash Cam with Wi-Fi

“You should’ve seen it.” An awful lot of driver’s stories end that way, but they don’t have to. This dash cam makes it easy to share recorded footage or even live stream video via the driver’s smartphone. That can be a fun way to keep in touch with family and friends, but the device can also serve as protection for truckers in case of an accident. A motion sensor triggers automatic recording while driving, and another sensor detects sudden acceleration or collisions, so that footage is captured and protected.
