Like surveillance systems, dashcams are the type of device that once installed and configured, the hope is that you never need to use/access its video footage. But you never know when you are going to be in or witness an accident or other noteworthy happenstance while driving.

Bluetooth headsets and USB car chargers are a dime a dozen. You can find them everywhere. But what you can't find everywhere is a device that combines both of these together.

At least once or twice a year the battery on Jeanne's Kia or the battery on our lawn tractor dies. Using jumper cables with another vehicle like my MINI Cooper to jump start the dead battery always makes me nervous. First I have to Google the cable connection sequence and then actually do it.

I’ve been procrastinating writing my review of the MIUCOLOR Trunk Organizer, waiting for a “really big” shopping trip to load it up and get a picture.

You're driving along minding your own business only to look up and see flashing lights in your rearview mirror. Then you look down at your speedometer and cringe.

Dash cameras have historically been more prevalent in many other countries than in the US.  (remember the endless dash-cam footage of the Chelyabinsk meteor in 2013?) Recently, dash-cams are becoming more popular in the States, either to have as an archive in case of an accident or to record a drive you rather not have your insurance company know about… Read More
