If you need a recording of traffic for either insurance or pleasure, you can push the Dash module record button and Securetone will take the video from the front camera and save to the SD card.  Also to monitor the activity around your vehicle, use the Securetone app to take pictures from either one of the 3 cameras.  You can store the pictures on the SD card or upload to the Securetone server for viewing with the Securetone app.
