Have you ever felt the panic of forgetting where you parked?    

Found your car scraped or dented without any evidence of what happened? 

Gotten into an accident and had no proof you weren’t at fault? Wondered what that check engine light means or how well your new driver is doing? 

Get the 24x7 protection you need with DashPal! 

Our innovative Dash Cam, On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) and Mobile App use the latest technologies to give you peace of mind wherever you are. 

With DashPal at your side, you’ll have everything you need to take better care of your car and the people in it.

Auto Diagnostics   

Staying safe on the road means more than keeping an eye out.
For those dangers you can’t see coming, DashPal’s got you covered. 
Our OBD sensor plugs into any car’s standard diagnostics port and reads over 2000 vehicle codes. 
If something goes wrong, DashPal will let you know exactly what the issue is, so you can get it fixed right away. 
No more wondering what that check engine light means, getting stranded by a sudden breakdown, or having to hope your mechanic is honest.

Vehicle Location    

Track your car’s location in real-time and see where it is right in the DashPal app.
So you’ll always know exactly where you left it - or where your new driver’s taken it. 

Driving History    

DashPal records all your trips from the moment your car starts. 
Check the DashPal app to see where you’ve gone, your average and max speeds, trip time and distance, as well as fuel costs. 

Driving Behavior    

No matter how long we’ve been driving, we can all be a little safer on the road. 
DashPal tracks driving behavior and lets you playback your trips on our animated map to see all your hard stops, quick starts, and sharp corners exactly where they happened. 
Plus, we’ll calculate your overall Safety Score so you can see how well you’re driving and improve over time with DashPal as your personal driving coach! 

Driver Safety    

Make sure your new driver stays safe and on track wherever they go. 
Set custom Speed Alerts in the DashPal app to know when she’s driving too fast. And custom Boundary Alerts to know when she’s going too far.

170° Angle  

Capture more of your surroundings (up to 5 lanes of traffic) with DashPal’s industry-leading 170° angle.

 1080P

Note that videos play in default at 720p, to see in 1080p, go to this link and make sure to select 1080p HD from settings.

Installing DashPal takes only a few minutes, and can easily be done without special tools or know how.   

We’re a small team of friends, designers, and engineers fascinated by two things: the thrill of the journey and the power of technology.     

We believe in fully embracing the freedom of the open road while carefully avoiding the hazards around its twists and turns.  

Inspired by the extraordinary innovations of the smart car movement, DashPal is our first adventure in leveraging technology to keep drivers connected and protected - wherever you go.  

Our mission is to empower you to enjoy peace of mind knowing you and your loved ones are safe - even if you can’t afford to buy a new car with the latest smart technology built in.  

We believe DashPal is an elegant realization of that mission and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you.  

Driving is all about keeping us connected to our dreams, our sense of adventure, our family and friends.   

We believe Kickstarter is all about connection too: connecting inspired backers like you with new companies like ours to bring innovative ideas to life.  

Our last year has been an adventure in researching, developing and testing to get DashPal as close to perfect as we can. We’re almost there but we need your support. 

We’ve already invested over $100,000 of our own money into making DashPal a reality, but we need help funding our first mass production purchase order.

Through the power of the Kickstarter community - the connections, friendships, and support you offer - we know we’ll be able to put the final pieces in place to fulfill our mission and make DashPal a reality.

 

Risks and challenges

The DashPal dash cam and OBD are ready to start production as soon as we reach the funding goal. We already have the manufacturer in place and have finished preparations. Our experienced engineering team has more than 15 years’ track record of bringing products to market, so as long as we reach out funding goal, your DashPal dash cams and OBDs are guaranteed to be delivered on time.

So in brief, we're super confident we can deliver and incredibly high quality product, and on time — and are so, so thankful that you're on this journey with us!
