GPS records accurate speed and location data for your vehicle. This can be vital in pinpointing exactly where an incident took place and how fast you were driving, which can be crucial in an insurance claim.
Do I Need GPS on my Dash Cam?
GPS can be vital in the event of an accident, providing road names and where other vehicles were located at the time of the incident.
GPS also shows driving speed prior to impact, which can be invaluable in proving fault in an insurance claim. The speed picked up by GPS satellites can often provide more accurate information than a vehicle’s speedometer.
By providing the time, date, speed, location, and direction of a collision, GPS helps speed up a potential claim.
Your footage is the evidence
The information picked up by GPS can be vital when filing an insurance claim. It will feature the time, date, speed, location and direction of a collision, which helps speed up a potential claim without having to gather all the details before sending on to the relevant party.
Evidence for the Police
GPS data can also be used as evidence for the police and in court cases when reviewing Dash Cam footage. Worried about insurance scams such as ‘crash for cash’? Identify who was at fault more easily via the G-Sensor data, which picks up any unusual physical movements.
Useful for young drivers
Help young or first time drivers know their speed and location with GPS to encourage better driving. Driving instructors can also use GPS data to review and demonstrate speed to students after lessons.
