Amazing Gifts That Will Wow Grandma & Grandpa

Amazing Gifts That Will Wow Grandma & Grandpa

Gifts that will make you their favourite

Whether Grandma and Grandpa’s new on the job or they’re old pros by now, the major role they play in our lives means they deserve an extra-special holiday gift. While your Granny and Grampy probably loved the macaroni necklace that you made them a few decades ago, it’s time to skip the cliche and up your gifting game, and we got a couple of gift ideas that are thoughtful, useful, and bound to be extremely appreciated by grandparents.

The Thinkware X700 and the VIOFO A129 Pro are perfect dash cams to gift, especially if your grandparents love taking it to the open road.


Video quality:  1080p Full HD Front and Rear | Field of view: 140° | WiFi: No | Cloud-ready: No | Parking mode: Yes   | ADAS: No | Memory card: microSD card up to 64GB

The Thinkware X700 is a front and rear dash cam solution and is the perfect little piece of tech for peace of mind on and off the road. It comes with 2 cameras: a buttonless, sleek-looking front camera, and a discreet rear camera. The X700 is very easy to use, thanks to the 2.7” LCD touchscreen display. A wide viewing angle gives a full view of the road while 1080p Full HD recording ensures a crystal-clear picture day or night. The X700 is designed as a plug and play solution with the ability to power directly from the vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket. Hardwiring is also an option if you want to enable parking mode recording for when the vehicle is parked.

One of the interesting things about the Thinkware X700 is that it helps capture more of the road than just the drive. The onboard road safety features advise the driver of hazards on the road ahead that the GPS is aware of. For example, speed and red-light cameras at intersections are mentioned when they’re in close proximity. The ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) keeps tabs on the dangers around you, including unsafe lane changes and potential front collisions.

Unlike other Thinkware cameras, you do not need to download apps onto your smartphone to manage your video footage files. Everything is done right on the touchscreen interface so you don’t have to worry about device compatibility or hotspot connections. There is a viewer software that you can download for your computer or laptop to review the footage files on the microSD card.

The Thinkware X700 comes with everything you need to start capturing your mile upon mile adventures, including a power cable, external GPS module, memory card and card reader, windshield adhesive mount, a Quick Start guide and a 1-year manufacturer warranty.


Video Quality:  4K UHD Front + Full HD Rear | Field of View: 130° | WiFi: Dual-Band | Cloud-Ready: No | Parking Mode: Yes | ADAS: No | Memory Card: MicroSD card up to 256GB

The VIOFO A129 Pro is more than just another dash cam that offers convenient operation via an LCD screen. It is a true 4K system that put it on par with the Thinkware U1000 and the BlackVue DR900S in terms of recording resolution. The field of view on the A129 Pro is 130 degrees, which is slightly narrower than most dash cams. But that said, 130 degrees offers more than enough field of view to capture the road.

There is even additional options to record in 2K at 60 frames per second or even Full HD in 120 frames per second, which are great options if you are planning on using the A129 Pro as an actual racing camera.

In addition to the display screen, the A129 Pro also comes with an app that let you download and share videos right from a smartphone. The VIOFO mobile app is available for free on the Apple Store and Google Play.

The VIOFO A129 Pro comes in a 1-Channel Pro front camera unit as well as a 2-channel Pro Duo front-and-rear camera system. Both options come with everything you need to start capturing your journey in 4K UHD, including a power cable, GPS logger, memory card and card reader, windshield adhesive mount, and a 1-year manufacturer warranty.
