Is what to buy a dad this Father’s Day driving you around the bend?

Is what to buy dad this Father’s Day driving you around the bend?

The answer is … look out for them!

What to buy for your dear old dad? It’s a question that has many scratching their heads as ideas of aftershave, socks and jocks inspire yawns in virtually all of us. However, in 2021, with driving holidays a near certainty for most of us, more time in the car (less on public transport), the answer is clear: one of the many Navman MiVue™ dash cams built for the car, 4WD, truck or motorbike.

Whether your dad likes the finer things in life (like sleek sportscars), towing a caravan, going camping, bush-bashing, drives a truck for a living or loves his motorcycle, Navman has a dash cam suited to his driving needs and your budget.

Not all dash cams are the same. If the primary role of any dash cam is to protect the driver in the event of an accident and provide the evidence they need, that evidence must be clear and unambiguous. Some dash cams just don’t record with the level of detail and clarity needed to even see the type, let alone the number plate of the other vehicle. And many don’t include features like GPS tagging or 3-Axis G-Sensor which will provide speed, direction and G-Force of impact, along with location, date and time imprinted on all footage.

The Navman MiVue™ dash cams do, plus a lot more to keep your dad safe out on the road. All built in Navman’s manufacturing facilities and rigorously tested to Australian and NZ conditions. Choose from a variety of features and functions – single camera, dual camera (front and rear), sensors that allow filming even in very low light situations, navigation guidance with maps and spoken alerts, speed and safety alerts, parking mode (which keeps recording even when you’re not in the vehicle) and ultra-discreet cameras you’ll never notice are tucked away on the windscreen.
