Everyone should have a dash cam these days, right? You never know what's going to happen when you're out on the road. And you never know what the other person is going to say either, honestly. Get all the facts right for every accident or just get every scene of that deer you saw on the side of the road captured in beautiful 1080p video. Relive your favorite road trip memories or save the important incident videos. The Yi Technology smart dash cam is down to $54.99 as a part of Best Buy's deals of the day. These are very temporary sales that will expire at the end of the day if they don't sellout first. This dash cam normally sells for around $65 or more, so you're saving $10 here.

Records in 1080p resolution with 60fps video. G-sensor tech will automatically save footage for insurance claims. Has 165-degree wide angle lens, night vision, and advanced driver assistance. Comes with a 32GB microSD card.

The Yi dash cam is built to withstand a lot of punishment, too. It has a shock-resistant construction and a thermally-optimized ventilation system. That means even in an accident or whatever the dash cam will stay sturdy and strong. Plus it won't overheat after extended use.

The device records in 1080p at 60fps, which is really all you need. You can even bump up the resolution to 2304 x 1296 at 30 fps. The cam has a wide angle lens, too, with a 165-degree field of view. You'll be able to cover the entire road in front of you.
