Christmas gift idea #4: A new kind of dash camera

Have peace of mind this holiday season

Zumi X15

In the lawless frontier known as Metro Manila, we’re all too aware of the usefulness of dashboard cameras. But if you’re a savvy motorist, you’re most likely also using a smartphone mounted on your windshield. Adding a dash cam to your car’s interior can result in clutter.

What we discovered recently is a nifty solution to our street-monitoring needs. The Zumi Duo X15 is different in that it supplants your rear-view mirror, and integrates a fully functional dash cam.

Within the X15’s surface is a 2.7-inch LCD screen that displays what’s being recorded. Attached just underneath the device is the tiny camera that does the recording.

The X15 has all the features of a traditional dash cam. There’s auto on/off, G-sensor (for permanently recording what’s happening in case of an accident), and loop recording. It also records at 1080p HD, with a wide 170-degree angle to capture the scene in front.

Like its Duo Dash kin, the X15 also has a secondary camera for recording what’s going on at the back. Naturally, you can use this as a backing-up camera when parking. To select what’s being shown on the X15 screen, you can toggle between split view, picture-in-picture, and front-only or rear-only view.

The Zumi Duo X15 retails for P8,000. We think that’s a reasonable price for peace of mind. If you're interested, you can check out Zumi’s website.
