'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

Summer's in full swing, and the airlines are having a meltdown, so it's the perfect time for a road trip. Unfortunately, accidents happen. And whether it's yours or one you witness, video evidence is often even more accurate than the accounts of observers, which means a powerful, affordable dashcam can be an excellent investment.

So you may want to pick up a myGEKOgear Orbit 110 Full HD Dashcam while you can get it for just $39.99 during our Deal Days sale. But don't wait too long, because the sale ends July 14.

The Orbit 110 has a sleekly compact build that was designed specifically to keep the space in front of your windshield clear. And it comes with a suction mount to make sure your dashcam stays where you put it.

This dashcam has a viewing angle of 120°, which allows it to capture more of the road. So it's also great for recording any behavior of drivers, cyclists, and even pedestrians who might be endangering others. The video processor is powerful, with a 1080p resolution, so you may be assured that the captured footage provides the highest clarity.

The built-in CMOS sensor also renders clear imaging day or night, offering well-lit videos even from situations with low light. Even more important, the Orbit 111 also has a G-sensor built-in that locks onto all emergency files automatically if it senses a collision or even drastic braking.

Users are able to view settings and their footage on a 1.5" LCD screen. While an 8GB microSD card is included with the Orbit 111, the unit is expandable all the way up to 32GB. A 12-24V car charger comes with the unit, as well.

So it's easy to see why verified buyers such as Patrick Whitlow give the Orbit 111 a 5-star rating. He said: "The price is right for the camera; it works great to keep track of your drive. I seem to drive slower now that there is a record of what I'm doing."

Whether you're going across town, crossing the country on a road trip, or moving for a new job, now's the time to start recording smooth road videos with a full HD dashcam.

Get a myGEKOgear Orbit 110 Full HD Dashcam while it's discounted 60% from the $99 retail price during our Deal Days sale until July 14, and you can have it for just $39.99.
