Thoughtful Gifts that Won't Break the Bank

So you can gift like a champ

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. There’s something about the holiday season that makes giving presents so much more exciting than receiving them. But with Black Friday essentially becoming a holiday itself these days, it can be easy to spend your whole seasonal shopping budget in just one day! No worries - we’ve got you covered!

The Thinkware FA200 Dual Channel, the BlackVue DR590W-2CH and the VIOFO A129 Duo are the perfect little dash cams that show how much you care.

The Thinkware FA200 Dual Channel is the quintessential entry-level dash cam. It gives you a lot of fantastic features for the price tag. This camera has front-and-back facing cameras, built-in WiFi capabilities, and a host of modern recording features. The slim design fits neatly behind any rear-view mirror. The front camera is capable of recording at 1080p Full HD and the rear camera at 72p HD, and with a wide 140° view, you can see more of the road ahead and behind.

With a heavy emphasis on Advanced parking mode, the FA200 is equipped with Time Lapse and Energy Saving mode for extended surveillance. It can even notify you when someone hits your car while it’s parked.

The FA200 comes with everything you need to start capturing your drive, including a Thinkware Hardwiring Kit to enable parking surveillance features.

The BlackVue DR590W-2CH is a simple plug-and-play dash cam that will start capturing your drive right away. This camera records 1080p Full HD videos of the front and back of your car in a 139° wide angle. The specs are a little below the top-tier dash cams, but the quality is excellent and with many convenience features and a budget-friendly price point, the DR590W is a great buy.

You can use the BlackVue mobile viewer app to connect to the dash cam to adjust settings, check the view from the front and rear cameras or transfer files to your mobile device straight from your smartphone.

The VIOFO A129 Duo is a great little dash cam that comes with all the essentials. With the VIOFO mobile viewer app, taking out the memory card will no longer be necessary as it provides live preview, video download and playback, and settings adjustment. It also comes with a 2” HD screen which allows for easy setup and playback of videos as a convenient alternative to using the VIOFO app. The great thing about this is that the front and rear camera both records in Full HD, which means you get crystal-clear views of both the front and back of your car.

The A129 Duo is hardwire-ready, which means all you need is the 3 Wire ACC Hardwire Kit and you can enjoy parking mode recording.


No matter how much (or little) you spend on a gift, remember that it really is the thought that counts and the Thinkware FA200, BlackVue DR590W-2CH or the VIOFO A129 Duo are the perfect way to show them you care this holiday.
