  • 1440P dash cam w/ GPS LOGGER: The camera will start recording automatically as soon as an accident occurs. With the GPS logger, the camera lets you track the speed and location of your vehicle. When you’re finished recording, just plug the dashcam into your computer or Phone and you can see where you’ve been and how fast you were going.
  • 160° SUPER WIDE ANGLE: It also has a 160-degree wide-angle lens that lets you see or records on both sides of the road. The lens sits on a rotating axis, so you can quickly change the angle without having to reattach the camera.

The capacitor also helps protect your backup dash camera against extreme temperatures. You can leave the A119 in your cars for long periods of time and the video camera won’t freeze up or overheat.

I recommend going on Amazon and getting a restored 13inch Macbook Pro. Macbooks hold value and I am still using my 2014 (which I bought used).

Here is a link:


That one is above your range but thats the one I'd recommend because of the storage. In short, its worth the extra $.

Also, theres this:


That is within your range, but it has less storage.

Your daughter will 1) love the cool factor of having a macbook, trust me. and 2) A used one is probably the best deal on the market. Macbooks are durable and will last through college (would have to get a battery replacement after about 3-4 years but they will still work great!).

There is no reason to get a new laptop anymore - once everything went to Flash storage and over 8GB RAM, the features "maxed out" for what your daughter is going to use it for. The rest is durability and Macbooks are VERY durable.

As a Mac user with several Macs, I can also say that both of these laptops are actually MORE preferable than the ones that came later on because these have better keyboards. Apple replaced the keyboards with a bad design and only recently fixed it. So, a Macbook from 2014-15 is kindof seen as the "last good bunch" by fans.

Just be sure to get it before Christmas and check it out, like make sure it works and stuff. Amazon has a good return policy and you can likely get it exchanged if its got broken parts (unlikely but anythings possible). I'd turn it on and charge it up, and see how long the battery lasts. If it goes dead real fast (like under 1 hr) then I'd send it for a replacement.

Depends. I tried using the shuttle once and they refused to take me since I didn't have a "dual-chambered" tube, which is bullshit. It was just their way of forcing you to rent one of their tubes if you want to ride with them. Taking 2 cars is definitely the way to go, leaving one at the exit point (Parking costs $3). If you're going to go more than once over the summer, just invest in the tube a life jacket. These are the tubes everyone buys, and buying it costs the same as renting it once. It won't help you for tomorrow, but life jackets are currently $12 on Amazon. So once you make the initial investment, it's free to go as much as you want after that.

I use a different route than what was suggested above: Start at Cochran island, 5450 Interstate N Pkwy Sandy Springs, GA 30328 and end at Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area: Paces Mill
3444 Cobb Pkwy Atlanta, GA 30339. I've done a lot of tubing and this is the best route, and it's very popular. It takes 3 hours. I've never heard of being able to rent only the life jackets, but it may be possible.

I go pretty often, so let me know if you have any other questions. Oh, and here's where you check if it's safe to go, but this is only an issue if it's been raining during the week.

EDIT: I just saw an even better deal for life jackets

u/AFlockofTurtles · 4 pointsr/Atlanta

We have 4 of these and 2 friends also got them without issues.

G1W Original*


Mount for Rearview Mirror

*the reason I put the asterisk is due to it actually being an original one. I've ordered from sites like Aliexpress and their original was not actually one. The G1W is a pretty great budget dashcam and the quality is overall great when you are buying the original. Hope this helps!

u/nope_nic_tesla · 6 pointsr/Atlanta

>much cheaper than Claratin, Allegra, or other newer types

These can be bought as generics on Amazon for super cheap. This generic Zyrtec is 4 cents a pill.

Generic Allegra is quite a bit more expensive but not too terrible.

Generic Claritin is also super cheap.

The generic Zyrtec and Claritin are actually cheaper than what they sell thh Wal-Finate for (which comes out to a little over 10 cents a pill -- and they last all day instead of 4 hours).

I still have over half of my generic Zyrtec bottle from last year linked above.

For that matter, you can also get chlorpheniramine (what Wal-Finate is) on Amazon for much cheaper too. The Walgreen's website has their Wal-Finate listed at $7 for a 50 count of 4mg tablets. Amazon has $12 for a 1000 count of 4mg tablets.

You're welcome :)

u/watchthenlearn · 1 pointr/Atlanta

I'm pretty sure this is it. I like how I can hide it behind my mirror. The quality is decent, and it has a battery that allows the camera to continue to record for a certain amount of time after the engine is shut off.

Most of the time I forget it's there until something fun happens on the road. Have had it for over a year and the peace of mind is worth way more than the cost of the camera.

Edit: Looks like for $15 more you can get one of a similar format that is more favorably reviewed. Rexing.

u/bluuk · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

It's a GW1 that I purchased from Amazon.

The day time video quality is great but the night time quality is only ok. It works great for a $70 dash cam though.

It takes up to a 32 GB micro sd. Make sure you get a class 4 or 6 card or you might run into issues.

u/joeydsa · 1 pointr/Atlanta

There is no such thing as free parking. It cost money to build and maintain parking spaces, and that cost typically gets past on through the resident via either rent or purchase price. You pay for the premium weather you want to or not, but by requiring parking by law, you force others to pay for the premium as well.

If you're interested, I would recommend The High Cost of Free Parking by Donald Shoup

u/dmaul1114 · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

If any one is upgrading to a mesh WiFi (whole house wifi--one network with a couple of wall plug satellites) I highly recommend this Netgear Orbi bundle. Was super easy to set up and works great. Wish I'd done it sooner as our wifi has sucked in the upstairs bedrooms and back deck/yard since moving last fall.


u/7oby · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

I got one that I wouldn't really recommend but it was on woot for $80. It's a top dawg (lol) with a front and back camera, the back is on a 30 foot line. The video quality is meh, I can only make out plates when I'm pretty close to them. The one that reddit seems to like is the G1W though:

u/yetanotherburner17 · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

What kind of gas heater? Are we talking about the older version of this?

The older version I've seen is brown and you can see the pilot light at the bottom (why yes, yes I was the kid who went around blowing them out like it was my birthday). I'm not sure those have to be vented.

And buy them some new carbon and smoke detectors. I bet the ones they have are super old.

u/Drillmhor · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

You can get something like a security bar to very cheaply upgrade your security. Only works when you're there (obv) but it will make it very very hard for anyone to enter your house. I highly recommend this option or something like Master Lock 265DCCSEN Dual-Function Security Bar

There are some with a wedge shape that fits up toward the top of the windshield. Really hard to spot without looking for it if your windshield has those black dots are darker area up there.

I use a Viofo A119 from SpyTec. Has the wedge shape and some great features for $99 with GPS mount (would recommend getting this for better wiring direction and easier removal if need be) and $89 for regular mount.
Two reviews for ya.

u/azureice · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

Don't buy a shitty walmart float. Just buy a good Intex tube, they are $18:

Much better quality, two cup holders, a headrest, a good valve, thicker plastic. Cheaper to buy this than to pay for one tube rental.

u/DormantVain · 5 pointsr/Atlanta

The video actually doesn't do the quality justice since its so heavily compressed! But if you're ever in the market for a dashcam, be sure to consider it :) A119

u/NOTFORFRYINGTURKEYS · 2 pointsr/Atlanta


My only complaint is that the GPS won't overlay on the video. The GPS is working (it will show my speed on the real time display) but not on the recording. It's just as well though, I don't think I want it shown on the recording. I'd just like to know that I could if I so chose.

As others have pointed out, there are even cheaper cameras than this one out there that work well also.

u/saw213 · 1 pointr/Atlanta

Yes, definitely soon. I need the exercise. Just let me know when you guys play and where.


I got these a few years ago to practice with.


u/ewifflebat · 5 pointsr/Atlanta

I knew Hannah about 8 years ago. She's a very cool person. Her new book on this topic is getting great reviews, if anyone wants more details:

u/TravisLabs · 3 pointsr/Atlanta

A few months ago I got rid of my residential service and replaced it with an Internet only business service and I'm getting a little over 100 Mbps down and 20 Mbps up.

Even if you don't want to do that make sure you have a decent cable modem. The SB6121 is DOCSIS 3. You can check you own signal levels and logs easily. It gives you ammo when calling tech support. If you see T3 and T4 timeouts in your log, a tech should come out and check the cables.

u/2pt5RS · 1 pointr/Atlanta

Interesting. I also have a black box cam

I like it enough, but the capacitor version of mine just doesn't do it for me. I like the faux brushed aluminum look mine has, not the black plastic.

u/TMacATL · 1 pointr/Atlanta

I've had this one for a little over a year now and it's been great. I hardwired it to a switched fuse so it turns on and off with the car, and the two sided tape has made sure it stays put on the windshield. It was small enough that I was able to mount it in front of my rear view mirror, so most of the time I forget it's even there.

u/blakrazor · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

I have the A119 which is has been easy to use and works great. I also highly recommend it since it's only maybe $20 more than A118 but still less than $100.

u/Enemyboatspotted · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

This happened a few days ago. I've had the Black Box G1W since around 2014 and it works pretty well. Only issue I've come across is that the date and time reset randomly.

u/DrHeinzGruber · 7 pointsr/Atlanta

White Flight is a great book, and explains a lot about how we got to where we are today (sprawl).

u/CoffeeandTV · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

Also, with Comcast you can save a small sum by purchasing your own modem.

Like New from Amazon Warehouse for $60

u/dzunravel · 6 pointsr/Atlanta

> They live and act like they are from small communities when in fact, the hub one of the largest and most exciting cities in the country is 40 minutes away. Yet they refuse to associate with it and are frankly afraid of it.

Relevant read.

u/peppercorns666 · 3 pointsr/Atlanta

I got this book for Christmas. Though the book is more about the cities that disappeared when the airport expanded, it does touch on the efficiency of Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Good read.

u/ArchEast · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

Minor correction: the book's title is The High Cost of Free Parking.

Amazon link

u/jsvh · 9 pointsr/Atlanta

It's because we try to push too much free parking in this city. You can write a book about it:

This article can give you an overview:

-Also a former valet driver.

u/ToPimpABootyhole · 1 pointr/Atlanta

Flight Path by Hannah Palmer. A really good read. The author intertwined the story of her family and upbringing in the shadow of the airport and all of its expansions over the years


u/todddominey · 9 pointsr/Atlanta

Anyone interested in learning more about Atlanta's interior neighborhoods (including Inman) should pick up a copy of "White Flight".

u/SvenRhapsody · 3 pointsr/Atlanta

One of these Master Lock 265DCCSEN Dual-Function Security Bar will go a LONG way to preventing anyone kicking in your door.

u/fredricksen · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

I got mine off Amazon, it was a G1W. It's now $54, this link is exactly what I ordered last February. It's not the nicest dash cam, but I haven't had any issues with it whatsoever.

u/PM_ME_CATLOAFS · 7 pointsr/Atlanta

Not OP but mine is mounted the same way here you go.
