You've got another chance to grab the Yi Technology Smart Dash Cam (opens in new tab) on sale for $54.99 at Best Buy. We saw this deal pop up about two weeks ago, but the low price expired after a day. Since the Yi Dash Cam is part of Best Buy's deals of the day today, you can bet it's going to expire pretty quickly today as well. The same camera normally sells for around $65 or more, and when it is sold it usually doesn't include a free microSD card with it. So there's definitely some good value here.

Yi Technology smart 1080p dash cam (opens in new tab)

Records in 1080p resolution with 60fps video. G-sensor tech will automatically save footage for insurance claims. Has 165-degree wide angle lens, night vision, and advanced driver assistance. Comes with a 32GB microSD card.

The Yi dash cam is built to withstand a lot of punishment, too. It has a shock-resistant construction and a thermally-optimized ventilation system. That means even in an accident or whatever the dash cam will stay sturdy and strong. Plus it won't overheat after extended use.

The device records in 1080p at 60fps, which is really all you need. You can even bump up the resolution to 2304 x 1296 at 30 fps. The cam has a wide angle lens, too, with a 165-degree field of view. You'll be able to cover the entire road in front of you.

The 2.7-inch color LCD screen gives you an easy-to-use and interactive interface. The built-in G Sensor technology can detect when an accident happens and automatically save emergency video. Use the Night Vision feature to reduce video noise and enhance image quality even during low-light conditions. The advanced driver assistance system gives you alerts for potential dangers, like drifting out of your lane and things like that. Use the Wi-Fi to record, share, and backup your recordings on your mobile device.

The dash cam comes with a 32GB microSD card so you don't need an additional puchase. And you can set the card to loop over old footage so you don't have to replace it.
