When we talk about a dashcam under $100, it is usually equipped with basic features packed and parcel in a substandard exoskeleton. Papago’s GoSafe 118, though, throws that misconception straight out of the window.
Packed to the brim with features you may usually find in high-end dashcams, the GoSafe 118 is the perfect investment for people looking to foray into the world of dashcams, or as a gift for others. Equipped with a 2 inch LCD panel and a 1.3 megapixel HD sensor, the 118 comes in a compact package that stays well hidden behind your rear-view mirror. Usually sub $100 dashcams have a limited storage capacity but not the 118. With an expandable slot that can easily tackle a 32 GB memory card, you are rest assured your on-road adventures are safely documented. When it comes to recording, Papago 118’s 1.3 megapixel HD sensor captures wide-angle 125 degree videos in 720p resolution and at 30 frames per second that easily suffices ones needs
While these features form a part of the conventional dashcam, what makes Papago 118 truly special is the added safety features packaged within. The 118 has a nifty “Driver Fatigue Alert” system that allows you to set timers to remind the driver to rest after a certain amount of hours on the road. The “Stop and Go Alert” keeps an eye out for you and beeps when the driver in front of you has moved. The feature only activates if you’re stationary for more than 10 seconds, allowing you to have a distraction-free driving experience. If this wasn’t enough, the 118’s “Headlight Reminder” system beeps and flashes whenever poor lighting condition strikes, notifying you to turn on the headlights and drive in a safer method. Yet another vital alert system the 118 offers that turns the dashcam into a surveillance system is the “Motion Detection” feature. The 118 runs on low battery consumption in your absence (when plugged in to an "always on" outlet in your vehicle, some vehicles may not have this capability) and activates every time it detects a motion in front of the vehicle, turning it into an optimal security system for your car. When was the last time your dashcam was also a watchful and vigilant co-passenger?
If you are keen on tracking your speed and location via GPS, the 118 also offers a GPS antenna input where an optional GPS antenna can be easily installed. The Papago 118 itself is powered by hooking up to the car’s internal battery system, allowing it to work flawlessly without the need to change its battery on a regular basis.
A replacement and upgrade from the GoSafe 110, Papago's new GoSafe 118 proves that size does not matter when it comes to dashcams. This micro-sized dashcam records in high quality 720p video resolution with a 125° viewing angle, taking up very little space on your car’s windshield. If it is supplied power continuously (by being hard-wired or from a car’s "always hot" cigarette lighter outlet, then you can take advantage of the motion detection feature and protect your vehicle from any mishaps during your absence.
