The Anker Roav Duo dash cam (opens in new tab) has fallen to just $73.09 at Amazon. In recent times, it has sold for just under $90 though it was going for as much as $120 late last year. Today's Amazon price is the lowest we have ever seen for it, though we expect you'll only have today to make the most of it as it is a match for a one-day promotion at Newegg (opens in new tab).
It's called the Duo because it has a front-facing and interior facing camera. You can record everything happening in front of your car while simultaneously keeping an eye on whatever might be happening inside the car as well. Both cameras capture footage in 1080p. They have dual 323 Sony sensors and NightHawk Vision technology that help capture footage with enhanced night vision.
The built-in GPS will automatically record your driving route, location, and speed so you have all that information when you need it. This is information that could be vital in the case of an accident or other emergency.
The camera also has a Parking Mode. It will keep an eye on the inside of your vehicle for 24 hours a day with a built-in gravity sensor to activate when it detects movement. Any sudden movements like someone running into your parked car or trying to break into it get recorded for your future use.
The camera works best when mounted in the upper mid-section of your windshield according to Anker's recommendation on the product page, and it comes with a two-piece 3M mount to help you get it in the perfect spot. It also comes with a 2-port car charger so you can power the camera and still have a USB port for your phone. Anker covers it with a one-year warranty.
You'll record all the footage onto a microSD card, so grab an affordable one (opens in new tab) that can handle a lot of data being re-written regularly.

Not a bad idea to have a dash cam. I have had one now (different brand) for a few years, and it has come in handy for two people who were in accidents in front of me where there was a dispute in what happened. When I stopped and waiting for the police to show up, it was amazing how, in both cases, the persons who caused the accident tried their best to place the blame on the other person. In one case it was a woman blaming a man, in another case it was a woman blaming a young girl who just had her license for about a month. When I stepped up, gave the officer my witness account I received some really dirty looks but comments that I was lying about what I had seen. (I did not know any of these people involved in any of the two accidents.) However, when I told the officer about the dash cam in my truck, we went back pulled it off the mount and we both viewed the accidents. At that time, those at fault received tickets and both stated they would fight in court. In both cases the officer asked if they could get a copy of the video, in both cases I just handed over the SD card ( carry an extra in the truck), he logged it as evidence and placed in a bag.
And in both cases, those dirty looks turned to flaming daggers out of the eyes of the two liars and honestly, that is exactly what they were. And that poor young girl was in tears the entire time. So, just imagine if it was you. Then again, if you are at fault, might want to NOT mention you have a dash cam.
