Dashcams are fairly new in Canada, like no one has one. Many locals here know that people really don’t know how to drive here and well, it would be beneficial if someone puts you into an accident or any other event that might happen, like pigs falling from the sky, would be worth capturing on video. So why not get a dash cam that’s right there that will record it for you, right when it happen.

Papago contacted me last month wanting to break into the Canadian market. So I said, why not? I decided to review the Papago P2 Pro model that has an amazing feature set.

The P2 Pro has some amazing features for it’s under $200 price range. Like seriously impressive.

One on side of the camera, there is an SD card that supports up to 32 GB SD cards, which is plenty. The clips are recorded in the MPEG-2 TS video codec, which your PC can understand. The P2 Pro will automatically record over the oldest clips, so no need to worry about the card filling up.

On the other side there are USB and HDMI ports.

There is also no internal battery in this unit, so it must be powered at all times. Personally, I wish there would have been a battery in here, just to make things easier. I would really love to have my XM Radio plugged into my vehicle and have my Papago working also, but that’s a bit tricky without hardwiring the radio to your vehicle, or the dash cam.

The LCD screen resolution is adequate providing 320×240 resolution.

The P2 Pro does have built in GPS, which is an amazing feature that records your exact GPS coordinates as you move. It also includes vehicle speed and time, which is quite amazing.

The P2 Pro also features a “G” sensor, which detects if you are in a collision. Cool thing is, it will backup the video so it can’t be accidentally recorded over when you’re in an accident.

It also has features such as the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) which includes stop and go alerts, the Lane Departure Warning System and Front Collision Warning System. It also has a driver fatigue alarm which can go off as you wish.

My final thoughts is that everyone should get one, and for under $200, it’s well worth it. Hopefully you’ll never need to use it but if you do, it will be right there, possibly saving you thousands in deductibles. Go pick up yours up today at Amazon. {rating}
