The Nexus 6P is a fairly substantial upgrade to the very popular Nexus 6.  Thinner, faster, a little smaller than it’s predecessor, the phone has gotten some excellent press.  The phone runs Android 6 on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB of RAM.  Excellent front camera specs at 12MP with laser autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash.  The front camera isn’t too shabby coming in at 8MP.  The storage maxes out at 128GB but most will opt for the entry level 32GB which is double what you typically see from Apple these days.  This compares real favorably to the best phones available from Samsung, … Read more…

Mounts for Garmin Dash Cam 20 and Dash Cam 10

Garmin made a decision a few years ago to enter the camera market.  I suppose the popularity of the GoPro had something to do with it.  Combine it with the decline of the personal navigation device due to applications like Waze and Garmin needed to find other ways to keep Wall Street happy.  The quality dash cam market is a good idea as there aren’t many high quality ones available.  The Dash Cam 10 and Dash Cam 20 represent Garmin’s entry into this market.  They then followed this up with the NuviCam which we wrote about here.  The difference between the … Read more…
