Best Gifts for New Drivers, According to Parents Who Know

It seems it was just yesterday you parked his first tricycle under the Christmas tree, and now you’re watching him drive off in a four-wheeled vehicle. As parents, a new driver’s safety and security should always be a priority. But let’s face it - incidents on the road are, to a certain extent, unavoidable - and new drivers often lack the experience and confidence to handle these mishaps on the road. This holiday, get them gifts that will help keep them safe and make their life on the road a little less complicated.

Here are a couple of mom and dad-approved options they are sure to love.

Both the BlackVue DR750S-2CH and the Thinkware Q800PRO are cloud-ready units. The thing we love about cloud dash cams is you can check on your vehicle through the cloud and your smartphone anytime, anywhere - and every mom and dad with a new driver will tell you is a lifesaver!


BlackVue DR750S-2CH

Video quality:  Full HD Front @ 60FPS | Field of view: 139° | WiFi: Yes | Cloud-ready: Yes | Parking mode: Yes   | ADAS: No | Memory card: microSD card up to 256GB

The BlackVue DR750S-2CH dash cam is a dual-channel system that captures excellent Full HD footage of the road ahead and traffic behind, day or night. It comes with the BlackVue Over-the-Cloud mobile app that lets you follow your new driver in real-time. Should your new driver or the vehicle get into an accident while in driving or parking mode, the dash cam will send a notification to your phone through the Cloud. Now say, they are out with their buddies, it’s getting late and they are not picking up their phones when you call. You can even tap into the dash cam and remind the of their curfew, thanks to the two-way voice communication feature.


Thinkware Q800PRO 2K UHD 2-Channel Dash Cam

Video quality:  2K QHD Front; Full HD Rear | Field of view: 140° | WiFi: Yes | Cloud-ready: Yes | Parking mode: Yes   | ADAS: Yes | Memory card: microSD card up to 128GB

The Thinkware Q800PRO is another dual-channel cloud-ready system that we highly recommend. Using the Thinkware mobile app, you can connect to the cloud for a real-time view of the vehicle and the driver. In addition to being notified in the event of an accident, the Q800PRO also has this awesome feature where you can set up geographical zones and be notified every time your new driver enters or leaves a zone, right on your smart phone.

The Q800PRO also comes with built-in safe driver tech that is designed to help your new driver become a better driver on the road. It will let them know if they are closing in too fast and too close or if they are driving all over the road.
