Practically every aspect of our lives rely on some type of technology. With that in mind, our Free Friday Guy – David Gregg – Behind The Buy .com’s – Senior Editor showcases some of the newest products to keep our digital lives and devices safe and secure.
PRODUCT #1: Magellan MiVue 420 DashCam:

The new MiVue 420 DashCam is always recording what is happening outside your dashboard. If there is an accident that leads to a fraudulent claim, you'll have footage of it. If something crazy on the road happens that you couldn’t describe if you wanted to, you'll have footage of it (Search Youtube: DashCam videos, it's a thing). Drivers are vulnerable to fraudulent claims in accidents, vehicle vandalism and road rage. The MiVue 420 can ensure the best possible outcome from these unpredictable situations. With its HD camera, outdoor travels can be recorded seamlessly, making it the perfect companion for the road.
