We have been road testing the Rand McNally Dash Cams for over a month and they have passed our inspection and are now for sale at TechnoRV. We have been waiting to be able to offer a high quality dash camera with a company that we have a solid relationship with and this is it. We are offering two models of the Rand McNally Dash Cams: the 100 and 300. They both offer a great deal of functionality, and the main difference in the two models is that the 300 model has GPS tracking to give you speed and location for your video.
One of the main things we like about these dash cams is that they are easy to use and come with great instructions right out of the box. In our tests we had no issues with performance; these dash cams worked flawlessly. As I have said before, there are a lot of poorly made dash cams on the market, and it was important to us to sift through the sea of offerings out there and be able to offer a well-made, high quality dash cam to you.
Why do you need a Dash Camera?
There are two main reasons you need a dash camera. First, with all of the places you travel, don’t you want to capture those moments on video? Sometimes the best moments are just around the next corner and before you know it they have come and gone. A good dash cam will capture all of those moments, and with the Rand McNally Dash Cam, transferring the video to your computer is very easy.
The second reason you need a dash camera is to have documentation in case an aggressive driver cuts you off or pulls in front of you and causes an accident. With the Rand McNally you can put your vehicle ID number on the recorded clip along with the date and time stamp. Your insurance company will love you for this. Also, with the Rand McNally dash cam you can set it in park mode, and if it senses a jolt of any kind then it will start recording. Now if you are in the Walmart parking lot for the night and someone hits you the camera will come on and catch the activity.
