Needless to say, car accidents aren't pleasurable experiences. Often, the ordeal devolves into finger pointing, pitting one person's word against another. By providing in-car video evidence, Voyager hopes to help drivers deal with the situation.

The just released Voyager Pro car camera with GPS logger packs an accelerometer that can detect fender benders, triggering a video recording of the 10 seconds leading up to and 20 seconds following an accident. The video is stored on a removable SD card — a 1GB card is included as standard.
Additionally, the product lets drivers pinpoint the location of the accident by logging the GPS coordinates for later retrieval using an included software package. It looks like the device only packs a forward-facing camera, so you're still on your own if rear-ended.
If it works as advertised, the Voyager Pro might make dealing with fender benders a little less painful — unless, of course, you're the one at fault. Recommended retail price is US$600.
