Our "Snowman" Camera

24/7 Windshield View

As a fellow driver, I understand the importance of having a clear view of the road ahead. That’s why I’m happy to share with you this amazing 24/7 view out of my windshield. Whether you’re looking for a quick glance before heading out on your commute or just want to check on the conditions of the road before a long trip, this view is here to help.

One of the great things about this view is that it’s always available, even when we’re not broadcasting live. The still image updates about every 15 seconds, giving you a real-time look at what’s happening on the road. This means that you can stay up-to-date no matter what time of day we are driving.

It's always fascinating and heartwarming to look back at the past, especially through old photographs. That's why we were thrilled when a road crew member used our early snowman images from 2010 and decided to take us on a trip down memory lane. With the help of these images, we were able to relive two of the most unforgettable adventures we had back then: The Bronx Run and The Washington Apple Trip. These trips were so amazing that they continue to stick with us to this day, and seeing those old images brought a wave of nostalgia that we thoroughly enjoyed. It's incredible how something as simple as a snowman camera view can evoke such meaningful memories. We can't wait to see what other memories we'll uncover in the future!

The very first website camera we ever used was the Logitec Orbit AF which we nicknamed Snowman because, well, it looks like a snowman – so the name has stuck all this time. 

That camera was used for our first ever still images uploaded to our website as well as the earliest videos.

We are actually using the same smartphone broadcast app for both the streaming camera, and the automatic still image uploads, so all the dynamic data displays the same way.

This shows an early photo of both our first “2 Camera System” cameras being used in our Volvo. The rubberband was used to keep the camera head from bouncing out of its base when on rough roads.

While we do allow viewers to see what is going on even while not broadcasting, there are still times that we cannot transmit ANY image or steam. This includes private customer property, time off, shop, etc.
