Dash Cameras and Racing
Recording and Over-writing the Footage
Unlike earlier times when cameras would only record- the increase in technology has translated to better and wider use of the cameras. The dash camera does recording and also over-writes the footage. This is going to help one to have a competitive edge in racing.
Some dash cams have special features that allow you to select the sections of the footage to keep (this is done automatically). In addition to that, there are sensors which are used to detect lane movement, any movement near your car, and frontal collision. Thus, during a race, you can easily detect any probability of collision or any disruption. This is going to help you save as much time as possible.

Racing drivers are going to benefit from the automatic rotation of the field of view. In addition to that, the amateur racer as well as the professional racer ought to practice the routes before the race.
It should be noted that most users use specific and pre-determined routes. After much practice, you can record everything and continue with the practice at home (through reviewing the recording). You can also lay down concrete strategies for the new races.
Satellite technology enhances the use of GPS which in turn helps in global positioning during racing. In particular, country racers are going to find this feature beneficial. This is because it will give them a better view of the road’s terrain. Furthermore, you are going to know the speed of the car at different positions.
G-Sensors and Better Day and Night Vision
The use of the G-sensors (gravity sensor) is going to help you know some things all at the same time. It should be noted that the racing driver can change the levels of sensibility or totally disable some features.
In addition to that, some cameras have well-developed night or light vision. Consequently, the racer is able to capture the driving experience whether it is during the day or at night. It should be noted that the flashing interferes with the quality of night recording.
