Basic Features of A Dash Cam
Starting With The Basics
All of our dash cams come with the following basic features.
It’s important to understand the benefits our dash cams offer before making a purchase. We care about your satisfaction, so If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer care team.
Auto Start & Auto Record
You’ll never have to remember to turn your dash cam on/off.
Our dash cams can be powered via the vehicle’s fuse box, cigarette socket, or the dash cam battery pack. The dash cam will automatically turn on and begin recording when ignition starts.
Our dash cams can be attached to your windshield using an adhesive strip or suction cup. All of our dash cams come with an adhesive strip.
This allows the camera to be flatly mounted against the windshield, significantly decreasing the amount of shock when things get bumpy.
Suction cup mounts are available as an added purchase. This type of mount is convenient and easy to use but may be more prone to shaking or falling.
All of our dash cams record onto a removable SD card. As such, there is a limited amount of video space available.
Loop recording ensures that your device will never miss a minute of your drive. Once the memory is filled, the latest data will overwrite the oldest data.
Loop Recording will not overwrite locked data, so you don’t have to worry about losing important footage
Impact detection refers to a file being recorded when triggered by the built-in gravity sensor. A G-sensor is able to detect vibration and register that the vehicle is in a potential accident.
When impact is detected, the current recording locks and saves to a separate emergency folder that is unaffected by loop recording.
The amount of storage space available depends on the size of your SD card.
All our dash cams can accept up to 256GB capacity, which translates to about 30-70 hours of continuous recording.
The range in hours depends on the camera’s resolution. For example, video shot at a higher resolution like 4K in would land in the 30’s range.
Field of View
It’s crucial for a dash cam to have a large field of view so that it can capture the action from any direction.
Most of our dash cameras have a 170° super wide angle to ensure that all important situations on the road are recorded. This field of view offers wide enough vision to capture the sides without being distorted.
Audio is an important factor in providing useful video evidence in certain situations.
For example, if you get pulled over and the officer claims you ran a stop sign, you not only have footage of the incident but audio of any potentially inaccurate spoken information as well.
This feature comes with the option to turn the microphone on or off.
