GEAR REVIEW: Philips ADR810 dashcam

26c775b1-0f07-4f7f-ba16-182f84128ed0

For keen campers, during the summer months it’s easy to rack up hundreds of miles on trips across the UK and beyond. And lets face it, at this time of the year many of the other drivers on the road give the impression that they’ve never been behind the wheel of a car in their lives. It can sometimes be a hairy experience so anything that gives you a little more peace of mind has to be welcomed.

But isn't a dashcam just another way to clutter up the dashboard – alongside satnavs, smartphones and all the other gadgetry we can't leave home without? Well, you could argue that it is, but the benefits clearly outweigh the negatives. And they're not all about road safety.

Easy to set up and simple to fit in your car, the Philips ADR 810 dashcam starts rolling as soon as you turn the ignition key and captures your entire journey on crystal clear HD. The 156-degree wide-angle lens films the whole road and it even works at night. And if there is a prang, it has an automatic collision detector and an instant replay function so you can quickly clarify responsibility there and then, with date and time stamped proof.

Obviously we all hope we'll never have a situation where we'll need video footage to sort out the aftermath of a crash, but another, far more pleasant, benefit of a dashcam for campers is to record the amazing places you visit. We completed the North Coast 500 round the Highlands of Scotland last year and every twist and turn on the road provided another stunning vista. We felt like stopping every five minutes to capture the scene on camera, but a dashcam would have meant the whole journey was recorded, providing a unique perspective of a memorable road trip.
