There’s nothing more annoying than returning to a car park to find that another driver has dented or scratched your vehicle and driven off without leaving a note.
But now a new multi-function dashcam can alert you to the problem, allowing you to view a recording and take immediate action.
The £500 iQ device can also wake a tired driver who becomes sleepy at the wheel – and even call 999 in the event of a crash.
It can also warn you if someone entrusted to use the car, such as a family member, drives it recklessly or goes somewhere unexpected.
