papago-770-5

I've never been much of a fan of watches. I'd either lose them, break them, or forget to wear them. Then cell phones came along, further denying my need for a time keeping device. However, I came upon a change of heart when I started coaching tennis. The girls would ask me what time it [...]

papago-p2pro-01

In my seemingly never-ending quest for a decent dash cam, I had the opportunity to review the Papago! P2Pro Dash Cam.  It may seem like another dash cam with an LCD screen, but the P2 Pro includes GPS, Lane Departure Warning and Collision Warning as well.  How do they do that? I was a little [...]

Using your smartphone to help you navigate while driving is obviously commonplace these days. But the problem with using your phone or even a stand alone GPS is that they require you to look away from the road to view navigation information. Garmin's new HUD+ is a small device that uses Bluetooth to pair with [...]

Using your iPhone's built in GPS to navigate from point A to point B is easy to do as long as you have a cellular signal. But get off the beaten trail and you'll quickly find yourself lost. If you want to add a high performance GPS to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad that [...]

I've been experimenting with different car dash cams since I discovered that the GoPro cameras don't feature an auto-record-upon-power-up function.  The last dash cam I reviewed was the Pittasoft BlackVue DR5000GW-HD, and before that, the DashCam Dually in 2010 (see related links for reviews of these products).  I thought the BlackVue DR5000GW-HD did a pretty [...]

Since my review of the Dash Cam Dually in 2010, I've had my eyes open for a quality in-car video recorder that wasn't so large.  The Pittasoft BlackVue DR500GW-HD car camera is a tube-shaped device that promises to be just that, and it's packed with some interesting features.
