The Best Gifts For Father's Day 2020

The Best Gifts For Father's Day 2020

Father’s Day comes every year - and every year we scramble to find Father's Day gifts that are unique and creative. They say they do not need anything more clothes or accessories, yet every year we end up getting another tie or some random gadget off the shelves at Home Depot or Canadian Tire.

So, this year, to help you out, we have put together some Father's Day gift ideas for you all. We know what you’re thinking, “Great, another gift guide to talk about how great the U1000 is!”

While the Thinkware U1000 is an awesome dash cam, there are many other models out there that are perfect for dads - and best of all, they are all on sale now so you can save a few bucks - what better way to make dad proud!

Looking for a gift that will keep Dad busy? Is Dad a DIY-type of guy or loves to work on his car? Take Scotty Kilmer’s YouTube recommendation and get him the tool that changes everything - the ThinkOBD 100. A necessity in every car owner’s toolbox.

While the ThinkOBD 100 is an entry-level OBDII scan tool in ThinkCar’s lineup, it does more than your basic diagnostic tool! It is the same, if not smaller than most smartphones, so it fits comfortably on Dad’s palm. A simple 4-button navigation paired with the high-luminance 1.77” built-in screen allows for simple viewing and operation. Just plug the ThinkOBD 100 into the car’s OBDII port - no mobile app or software to install or learn; no batteries to charge.

It’s compatible with 1996 and newer gasoline vehicles as well as 12V diesels and light trucks that are OBDII compliant.

Our Best Price for Father's Day

The ThinkOBD 100 is available on BlackboxMyCar at $49.95.


* Also available in 1-Channel

Forget the hassle of checking whether or not the helmet cam or GoPro is recording the M1 is designed to start recording Advanced Electronic Image Stabilization makes shaky footage due to bumpy roads a thing of the past. Super Night Vision 2.0 ensures videos are recorded with minimal noise in all light situations, even at night. We have seen the M1 installed on motorcycles, ATV and UTV, but who said you can’t install it on a golf cart, motocross, go-kart or even a tractor.

Perfect for Dads who live in HOT climates, drives HOT cars or are just simply, HOT

IROAD might be an unfamiliar name to North American consumers, but it is one of the top premium manufacturers in South Korea (the others being Thinkware and BlackVue) and is one of the best-selling brands in hot and humid countries like Singapore, Malaysia and Australia. IROAD dash cams are known to be reliable in intense heat. How reliable? We threw it into our heat tank last month for a Beat the Heat test. The full video is available on our YouTube Channel.

From an all-glass lens to an improved casing, the X10 is highly durable and is ideal for hot summer months from Florida to California. And not to forget, the X10 is a 4K dash cam that captures the road in a 165° ultra-wide angle - you can be sure that Dad’s truly covered.

Father's Day Special

From now until supplies last, get a free IROAD OBD-II Power Cable with a new IROAD X10, that’s a savings of at least $60!

What’s so special about the OBD Power Cable? It an easy plug-and-play solution that unlocks parking mode recording without needing to hardwire the dash cam to the car’s battery.


Yes, we are fully aware that it looks like high tech night vision binoculars from Sci-Fi films!

That rush of adrenaline when you first see the cops and realize you might get pulled over is never the kind of rush you want - and definitely not the rush we want for Dad. If your dad loves speed, then perhaps it’s time to get him a radar detector. But buying and hooking up a dash cam and a radar detector separately can get both expensive and complicated with the wiring and power.

Ta-da! Cobra has a 2-in-1 solution for you! The Cobra Road Scout is a dash cam radar hybrid with WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities. Equipped with a Sony STARVIS image sensor, the dash cam is optimized for day and night recording, capturing the road ahead in 154° in Full HD.  

The Road Scout has an app integration with the Cobra iRadar app that allows Dad to share and receive speed trap and radar gun alerts from other drivers in the Cobra community, Dad also gets the Drive HD app that lets him view and edit dash cam footage right on his smartphone. And just the fact that it is a magnetic mount makes it very easy to hook or remove it if needed. The magnetic mount is surprisingly strong and not once did were there accidental fall-offs when we tested it.

Our Best Price for Father's Day

The Cobra Road Scout 2-in-1 is available on BlackboxMyCar at $529.99.


Sorry, we just had to put it in this gift guide for kicks!

If you are looking for the best of the best, then there is nothing better than the Thinkware U1000 2-Channel on the market now. It’s the highest resolution 2-channel system, giving Dad 4K UHD in the front and 2K QHD in the rear camera. It boasts many features that would put many other dash cams to shame: advanced energy-saving parking surveillance and advanced Cloud features.

Father's Day Special

Starting June 12, save up to $100 off the U1000 4K UHD Single Channel!

Regular: $499.99  | Promotion: $399.99

With the $100 you saved, you can throw in the U1000 Radar Sensor so Dad can get up to 7 days of parking surveillance coverage!
