    Works good

    Works well! Be aware though, if you have an SUV, you will probably need to purchase an extension cord to get the back camera connected, as the cord that comes with it is not long enough to reach the back window. I had an exiting 6' male to female 3.5 mm audio extension cord that worked.

    Worth the money

    I have several dashcams. Several I have put in my granddaughter’s cars, one in my wife’s van and This one is in my car. I like it’s size and yet it still gives ma coverage both horizontal and vertical. I am familiar with the Garmin name through navigation items and thought their dashcam would be equally designed and functionality. So far have not been disappointed.

    Tiny Camera!

    Tiny Camera! It's only a bit bigger than the Mini 2 but this has a screen! Pairing with my phone was also very easy. Win for Garmin on size, function, simplicity and build quality. I might buy the mini 2 for rear monitoring.

    Amazing camera for a reasonable price

    I'm so glad I ended up getting after my Garmin Mini Dash Cam went. I already had the wiring in place and just needed to attach it to the same spot after cleaning that area. It's clear all day with no glare and records everything including when you park. The best part is it's extremely tiny. The only issue I had was waiting 3 minutes to pair this to the Garmin app on my iPhone. Even the app is good

    Good bet for the money

    Pros:

    1. warnings for forward collision, lane departure, traffic movement, traffic cam at lights, etc.

    2. incident detection gets saved

    3. in-built battery + chargeable via micro USB port

    4. GPS enabled

    5. Magnetic + adhesive option makes it easy to stick it to and remove from vehicle as needed

    Cons:

    1. screen too small

    2. comes with only 16 GB mem stick, could have provided at least 32 GB

    3. Price is slightly on the high end compared to "workable" models from other manufacturers.

    Plug and play wiring hook up, etal.

    I went on the advice of Mario your tenured tech that this would be a more clean and secure "plug and play" connection for my Thinkware U1000 dual channel install to Toyota 4Runner.

    Thus far the unit is working fine. However, I would (and will be) suggesting that Thinkware covers the nuances of how to use the unit properly and what settings to consider...in detail.

    Also need to address the anti glare filter on the lens and how it creates a "rainbow" effect on video with windows that are UV treated.

    Great buy and best decision ever

    Best decision ever to purchase this harness. I was using the hardwire kit from Thinkware and even though it works good this kit is AMAZING. I bought a new car so I took my Thinkware f200 and installed it on my wife’s car with the hardware kit and then once my new f200d pro came in and I used this harness I asked myself where have you been all these years and why didn’t I know about this. Will definitely be replacing the hardwire kit in my wife’s car with this when I upgrade her cam. This kit is also a must for cars with auto start stop.

    A great Dash Cam!

    I am really happy that I got this Dash Cam! It was because of a horrible situation at a gas station that prompted me to looking into getting a dash cam in the first place. I looked up the different ones out there and for the money, this was the best! I got installed at the Porter Ranch Store in California and I am very happy that I did! Very professional and he took the time to show me how it works! The installer told me that the dash cam that I got was his favorite and the best out there!

    Read the manual and ask questions

    Need time to adapt to the visual perspectives when the backup camera is on. When the sun rays are radiant it is not always easy to see and the item should have some screen or cover to address this important fact.

    I also feel one needs detailed assurances regarding battery maintenance and or drainage via parking mode functions.

    Keep track of your location and speed

    Plugs right in to your Rexing camera, and allows you to track your location and speed. A nifty gadget that can help prove your location, speed, even get you out of a ticket if need be. Well worth the extra 35.00

    Is not compatible with certain Rexing dash cams!!

    Supports Rexing V1 and V1P dash cams and is not compatible with other Rexing dash cams, including the V1 3rd Generation, V1P 3rd Generation, and V2. You will need a different GPS Logger for V2 and V1 3rd Generation. Be careful before purchasing to make sure you buy the right one for your camera.

    Purchased a day after the V1P

    Simple plug and play. Attaches to the windshield using 3M double sided tape, and allows more "detailed" information, such as speed and location. Gives a link to software that also used either Google Maps or some Chinese map service, so you can track where you went. I would recommend this if that sort of information is useful to you, and you have either the V1 or the V1P

    Dashcam Suction Mount

    I wanted a non-permanent dashcam mounting solution and this was the one specific for my model. It works fine. I'm a little concerned about durability, but it was so cheap that if I need to buy another one in the future, it won't be financially painful.

    Easy to use and holds the cam firmly in place. Easy snap on, snap off.

    Best used with a secondary (non-primary) vehicle as if you really want to make using the dashcam easy, a fixed semi-permanent install is the way to go.

    Highly Recommended. No more cheap ones.

    Highly recommended. I got tired of cheap ones off of Amazon and decided to put in a little more for one off of BestBuy. I am quite pleased with the quality of this dash camera. The higher video quality is great. No more blurry license plates. Higher quality at night. Higher quality videos in weather. Love the voice control. You don't always have time to figure out how to save the file just say save file. Card is easy to eject in seconds if need be. Gps tracking isn't required but helpful. If you don't know where you are when accident occurs then one should not be driving. Covers 100% of the lanes front and back. The tape strip fails to hold on the back but no problem the screws or duct tape do the job. I love the piece of mind. I know the electronics I buy off of Best Buy are good quality and will last a long time.

    Good as advertised

    It’s actually a great dash cam. Works as well as its advertised and easy to setup. I think for the price, they should include the SD card. And speaking of the SD card, it’s kinda difficult to put it in or take it out.

    My DC power cable must have been a bad one since it stopped working within 2 weeks. However I emailed the company, not Best Buy, and after a couple of emails, they sent me another one with no issues. I was impressed with that service.

    If I could, I would have bought the 4k version so that the rear camera would be better quality than the 1080p version.

    And I don’t think the rear camera has any night vision, at least compared to my factory reverse camera.

    Believe it or not but installation can be done DIY and that was definitely a positive thing.

    Good but has quirks

    Unfortunately it hasn’t quite worked right in the vehicle I wanted to install it in. But after uninstalling and reinstalling in another car I verified that the actual unit was fine. But some sort of interference is preventing it from working in the intended vehicle.

    The biggest nuisance that I found with the unit is that the recorded clips are very short. So that means that I’m the event that you want to save a clip from being overwritten you would need to lock it from the cam itself or sift through them on a computer. But I guess that is true for most of them short of Tesla cam.

    Oh also the unit is very heavy! If your OEM mirror is flimsy like mine was it will bounce uncontrollably. It eventually caused my oem mirror to fall off though it’s probably unique to my car which was held on by a plastic screw.

    Besides that it’s good, install is a pain especially if you have to do it as many times as I did lol.

    High quality cam

    This dashcam is worth every penny. The image quality is extremely clear. License plates are easily readable. A few days after getting my dash cam installed, I narrowly avoided an accident after someone rolled through a stop sign and cut me off. Although nothing happened, it is reassuring to know I would have captured the entire incident if something did. Highly recommend this cam.

    Easy setup

    The reason I didnt give it 5 stars is because the app is a little hard to connect to the dashcam. After many tries and a few choice words I believe I got it. You have to unconnect and reconnect and make sure your mobile data is off. Have to connect it each time you want to review your footage. I am not saying this happens to everyone but for me it does. Plus side... The picture quality is amazing! I love how it shows your speed on the videos. In case someone says your speeding etc its already there so you have your proof! The installation was a breeze even with a very hyper 6 year old (helping lol). I did try calling their number for help on the connect issue but they says because of covid yiu have to email which was 0 help. All in all iv happy with the purchase.

    In my opinion, a must-have vehicle accessory!

    This is a great investment for any vehicle to protect yourself from dishonest people. The video quality is great, and installation only took about an hour. Just make sure you have a good field of vision (nothing blocking the camera's view) before mounting it because once it's stuck, it's stuck! The tool to hide the wires under the vehicle trim was very simple to use and helpful. Setup was a little "clunky" because without reading the quick start guide, I was kinda lost. But once I got everything figured out, and got the Rexing Connect app up and running I'm good to go now. We are considering getting another one for our other vehicle and definitely recommend this one.

    Rexing Dash Cam

    I am disabled and in my 60's and it is difficult for me to understand electronics. Although I mentioned this during the installation process, I was told they only install, they don't do step-by-step instructions for comprehension. I'm thinking about returning it and trying another store that will explain how it works and how to operate the Cam. I bought the cam 3 weeks in advance and had to wait until it was shipped to the store, plus I had to book the installation 3 weeks out. After all of that, you'd think they would have helped me.

    The product is good, easy to use and easy to understand, and small things are also easy to install. The picture of the 4K camera app is very clear.

    Great 4K Camera at a good Price

    I purchased the Rexing V5 4K Dash Cam with the hope to upgrade my older 1K Pony dash cam. My only requirement was something that gives me crisp quality images. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The image quality far exceeded my expectations and I can make out license plates with ease. The wide 170 degree angle gives me a great view of the road and. The voice control is a new feature and works extremely well.

    I do have some suggestions:

    • Rexing should update the Quick Start Guide. It is sorely lacking of needed information on how to operate many of the features of the camera.

    • The list of voice commands are provided on a separate card and could easily be tossed if not careful. I recommend Rexing post the voice command list on their website next to the digital version of the Quick Start Guide and include it on future versions of the Quick Start Guide.

    • Navigating around the menus is confusing. I had to watch a third party YouTube video to teach me how to get around the menus. For example, long pressing some of the buttons is not spelled out in the guide and in general. I think long pressing is not intuitive so suggest added more buttons to simplify the camera operations as I am sure over time I will forget how to navigate the menus.

    • The Phone App for playback is extremely slow so I will not be using it for anything. If I need to access the video files on the road, a Micro SD Card Reader to USB Adapter USB-C plugged into a smart phone is my preferred approach.

    • The V5 can take still photos but only while plugged in. All prior Dash Cams I owned had a built in battery so you can use them as standalone cameras. The V5 uses a built-in Supercapacitor so there is no way to use the camera standalone. As soon as the power is off, the camera stops running. A portable phone power stick would be a good way to achieve that goal.

    • Finally, I emailed Rexing a question and I was pleasantly surprised that I got an answer in 24 hours.

    Overall, I would recommend this camera for anyone needed an excellent 4K Dash Cam and not wanting to invest too much money.

    perfect

    Got this to have prove I wasn't responsible if I got in an accident that wasn't my fault.

    Two days after it was installed it recorded an incident. The other parties insurance paid for my damages. Mission accomplished.

    BUY, you won't regret. Better safe than sorry!

    Also, very small + blends in with your car easily.

    Image is fine but problem with power input

    Image quality is good enough for wireless connection to the phone is a good option without taking out the memory.

    The only problem is the power connection to the 12V jack. It is not secured very well and sometimes it lost power. I have to push it one more time to make it works.

    I don't know whether it is my car problem for the jack size or dashcam power adapter.

    Great Camera, Terrible Installers

    This is an excellent camera, it works really well. I wouldn't have it installed at Best Buy Store in Mayfield Ohio though, the car audio installers ther aren't knowledgeable reliable honest or good in any since of the word "installer", and the Head Manager there is even worse. Buy the camera but get it installed elsewhere is my advice.

    Seamless Intergration With My Nextbase Dash Cam

    I got this camera to use with my Nextbase 322 GW Dash Cam. I chose this model because I wanted to have rear video coverage, but did not want to install a stand alone unit in the rear of my car.

    Installation was as simple as snapping it into the port of the dash cam. I had to reboot the camera for it to recognize, but once restarted I was immediately up and running.

    After installation the touch screen layout changed to include an option to toggle to the rear view and back. I have attached photos to show what it now looks like.

    When joined both the front and rear cameras are limited to 1080P 30FPS. I did not find this to be a problem because the video quality is sharp and clear. Vehicles, people and even license plates are easily captured. The rear facing camera captures video that is similar in perspective to what is seen when looking into the rear view mirror. It uses a telephoto lens with a 30 degree field of view that leaves some gaps in the side.

    After I connected both cameras I received a message that the SD Card I was using was not a U3 card and could not be used. It now requires a SD Card that is UHS Speed 3 and SD Speed 10. I am using it with a 128 GB SD Card and am getting 8 hours of front and 8 hours (16 hours total) of rear recording time. So remember that since there are two cameras and it only takes one SD Card, the normal recording time is half since the cameras are sharing the SD Card.

    This companion unit to the Nextbase Dash Cam suits my needs perfectly. Even though the rear recorded image is not as complete as a stand alone camera because of the side gaps, the convenience and simplicity is more than worth the trade off.

    Expensive but a great option

    I recently purchased a Nextbase 322GW dash camera, and a large part of the reason I chose it was due to the availability of this rear-view camera module. No other dashcam (that I am aware of) offers this type of option and I wanted to be able to monitor traffic behind me as well as in front.

    The problem is that I drive a convertible, and most dashcams with a rear camera attach to the back window - obviously not an option when you have a convertible. There are some dashcams that offer a rear camera that can mount outside (like off the license plate bracket) but those require a lot more tricky wiring through the trunk, etc. This Nextbase solution is so much easier!

    Pros:

    Simple to install.

    Worked right away. Some users report having to restart the dashcam to recognize the camera, but that's not a big deal.

    Good picture. The lens is telephoto, so it does not capture the driver or passenger - it aims directly out the rear window.

    The lens itself is on a swivel - You can make fine adjustments to the angle of view without repositioning the camera.

    Cons:

    Makes the dashcam physically larger. It's not huge, but you will have to fiddle with the location to make sure the front camera has a good view, the rear camera has a good view, and the camera itself does not block your forward view or mirror. If you think you might add a camera module to your Nextbase, do not install the adhesive mount until you test it with the module! Otherwise you might end up having to unstick it and move it.

    Rear camera resolution is not identical to the front camera resolution - With my 322GW, I get 1080p from the front camera but only 720p from the rear. With the more expensive Nextbase dashcams, you can get 1080p from the rear camera but I assume it's limited by the write speed to the microSD card.

    Expensive - Although I really like this rear-view camera, it seems pretty pricey for what it is. I feel like a better price point would be no more than $50. In fact I've read that in Europe it sells for closer to that price.

    Nether Pro nor Con:

    Compatibility: The rear camera modules do not work with every single Nexbase dashcam. Basically the 322GW is the least-expensive model they work with.

    In short - I'm very pleased with this rear-view camera. It does exactly what I wanted it to do and works well. My biggest knock is the price, but I'm not aware of any similar product out there that gives you a rear view without the installation issues.

    Decent, but limited, and sometimes causes bugs

    Good quality video, but some irksome things: it sometimes interferes with the software in the main camera, leading the main camera to freak out and stop recording and sometimes also start beeping, requiring a power cycle before calming down and resuming normal functioning. Also wish I could toggle between telephoto (to see through the rear window) and wide-angle (to capture vehicle interior). Unfortunately you have to pick one or the other, can't even buy both since there's only one HDMI slot in the 522 I have it plugged into.

    Does its job

    I’ve only been using this for a week so right now I will say it does what it supposed to do, however I find that you cannot read license plates on it so I’m not sure what good that does if you get into a car accident and the person takes off. However, it’s a piece of mine to have some sort of dash cam in case I do get into a car accident. I do recommend this one but I think You should get the hardwire kit that way it detects if someone hits your car while parked.

    Mostly Pros, some Cons.

    Good device for the price. Pros: Easy to use once installed. Easily connect via USB (to computer) or low power WiFi (to Phone). 3 recording lengths (1/3/5 min). Clear recording. Tracks time, date, GPS, speed, & internal audio on the video. All good.

    Cons: Set up instructions are poor. I found a few set-up videos which made it a LOT easier. You will need to download the app (no surprise) and first set up is clunky. But after that, it's not a problem.

    High recommend (with patience). Purchased 3 and gave 2 as gifts.

    Get a dash cam for your prtection

    Great add on dash cam; first get a 128GB micro SD card and a card reader (to PC) which are NOT included with the cam. I leave the display on when the cam is turned on. I manually turn the cam on at the start of a trip; off at the end of the trip. My vehicle's accessory port supplying the cam is hot all the time. If your car 's power receptacle turns off the cam when you turn off the the car's ignition switch that is a benefit to what I don't have in my car.

    CAM RECORDS IN EITHER ONE, THREE OR FIVE SECOND LOOP

    On cam display, follow initial set up:

    set the length of the recording loop time 1 3 or 5 seconds

    set how long cam display is on one sec to always on

    set date and time

    format SD card

    Upon set up mount unit, route power cable (supplied with cam) to an accessory receptacle. Unit will automatically start upon power introduction, there will be a couple of yellow flashes that will occur at start up for a second or 2. Unit is passively recording now in the set time loop. Loop recordings are stored on card and newest footage is over written on card to the oldest. To manually record press pwr button 1 time, the cam will record in "emergency" mode in the designated time loop, the footage is saved to another file on the card that can be only be manually deleted with the card reader Get a dash cam for your protection.

    Great dashcam

    I bought this open box dash cam and am very satisfied with it. It records up to 5 minutes at a time and will continue until it fills up the storage and then will overwrite old videos. It supports up to 128gb micro sd storage and wiring was a very simple process with someone that has 0 experience with it. I ran the wire in from the cigarette lighter under the glove compartment around the right side of the passenger window up to the rearview mirror and it worked perfectly. It is hardly noticeable and I’m waiting to see if my wife notices my work that I did. It has an easy to remove connector so that one can bring In the dash cam to deter theft. Transfer of video was painless with an SD card adapter connected to the computer. I tried connecting the device directly with the SD card inside however I was not able to get the computer to identify where the videos were this way. It will help when on the road and need evidence from those not so safe drivers.

    Great Dash Cam

    It is a very simple, yet effective cam. The suction cup holds nice and firm with an added locking mechanism, the unit itself is lightweight, the interface is straightforward and the power cable is generously long. I like that it includes a USB hub adapter to plug into your cars aux power outlet too. The recording quality is really good for both the front and rear facing cameras day and night. It also has loop recording, which is a feature you want in a dash cam *Basically it will keep constantly recording, even if you run out of memory, as it overwrites old files*.

    Things I want potential buyers to be aware of, because I see others may have not read the full description of this unit, is this is a HARDWIRED powered unit ONLY. It MUST be plugged in to function. Second, it DOES NOT come with a micro SD card. Even though the online manual says it can support up to 256gb cards, I can confirm that it DOES NOT support it. I got an unsupported error message multiple times. The box however indicates it can only support up to a 128gb card, which is the correct limit. Pro tip, get a higher quality fast reading SD card do NOT go cheap *I use a Sandisk with a V10 rating*. Make sure to format the card if using for the first time there is a handy built in setting in the dash cam that can do it for you. Video clips are saved as MP4 files and they they can be saved and played on most devices. Clips can be trimmed and sorted afterwards too.

    Overall, it's a very good cam for the price. Obviously there are more expensive better ones, but this still performs exceptionally well for only a hundred bucks and it can fit most peoples needs. As a safety precaution, I recommend taking it down if you are going to be parked for an extended period of time, so as noone tries to make an attempt to steal it. I've done this a bunch of times and it hasn't lost any suction strength.

    WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE

    Camera works great. The mount is trash. The windshield mount melted in October 80 degree weather. Wrote insignia about it. Huge waste of time. After several days of back & forth they recommended I go buy an after market replacement mount because they don't carry spare parts. Will never buy this brand again

    Easy to setup

    mounted it right behind the rear view mirror in my 07 camry. Wire across the top of the windshield down the side of the dash behind the glovebox into the center console. Took me 15 min to finish and that was taking my time.

    Picture is decent quality. Takes up to 5 min video clips of the inside and outside. Mic can be turned off if you don't want to be recorded singing. Need to purchase SD card separately. Using a 128gb with mine.

    Best value in my opinion. A lot of other brands sell at much higher prices just cause the brand name.

    Hardwiring a dash cam is really the way to go.

    I had the Best Buy geek squad car install tech use this hardwire kit instead of stringing a power cord from the top of my windshield across my dashboard down to the power outlet which I think looks really sloppy. Once installed, you can’t even see it. It plugs right into your fuse box and is activated when you turn your car on with your key. And it shuts off automatically when you shut off your engine. I had the dash cam and the hardwire installed for free because I’m a member of the total tech support plan. TTS Plan is a great value! Plus by using the hardware kit in your car, you still have the option of using the standard accessory plug in power cord with your dash cam if you choose to take the dash cam and use it in another vehicle for a while. You just unplug the dash cam from a hardwire and then Use the standard wire power plug for the dash cam in another vehicle if you want.

    This won't work on some cars. For example, we have a 2020 Chevrolet Equinox, and the fuses in the fuse block are much smaller than the connectors that come with this kit. I'm sure it works as long as you don't have the mini fuses. We are having to return this.

    Good cam

    Good upgrade from what I had. Still not sure how the loop works, seems like it just keeps going until the card is full then starts to record over the start of it. On my old cam I would have to reset the card when it got full but I haven't had to do it with this card. It's still not full HD and hard to see plates if not close and good lighting. It does do it's job. I did see one review that it beeps and stops for a second record and I have noticed that it does do that but then it will go back to recording.

    Works well, good quality

    I had a cam bought from an infomercial, and this is a good deal.

    Good quality and sound, but a little difficult to setup on the memory card. Since there seems to be a limit to a memory card, you have to have multiple if going on a road trip and wish to archive the whole route, depending on how far you go, of course. The files get overwritten when space fills up, so after a couple hours be ready to swap out. But again, the quality of the video image is good. I only used the driving mode, no parking in case someone hits/jars the car when turned off.

    Brilliant add on

    I purchased the Nextbase 422GW (GPS & Wifi) dash cam and decided to try the Rear Racing Camera Attachment since i like the front facing camera so much.

    the Rear facing camera is a super sleek and easy way to get a front and back, 2 channel view of your car's surroundings. this brilliant little attachment clicks into the side of the main camera and uses the main camera's CPU to duel film the rear view of the car while in sync with the front. No extra wires, no expensive additional camera or power source for the rear. just plug and play with superb image quality

    the main camera feeds all the telemetry, GPS, etc into the front facing camera's clips, while the rear does its thing.

    i guess the most brilliant part is the way the telescopic lens shoots out the back window, just like your rear view mirror would function. This POV hack is amazing.

    OH, and my maybe most fav part is that the Telescopic lens articulates, so you can point the lens so you get the perfect angle out the window, when the main camera is positioned anywhere on the windshield.

    Not a good option for Windeshield mounting....

    I have been using a NextBase dash cam for a few weeks now. I like the main unit just fine, and this add on does work well. However, I have the windshield mount for the main dash cam installed on 2 different vehicles, If you plan on mounting the dash cam directly to the windshield with these mounts, these little add on cameras are hard to make use of because the best placement for the dash cam is right behind the review mirror where the view for these add on cams is usually blocked. And they don't pivot in any direction.

    It works well, but I had no use for it because of the placement of the main dash cam was always near the review mirror where the view for this cam was blocked. So i returned it.

    Great mini dashcam

    Was a little gimmicky connecting to my phone at first but works great. Go pro sized dashcam. Night resolution is pretty good so far. Wiring might not be long enough for a mid size suv if you’re planning on powering it through a 12v in the rear so I’d recommend purchasing a longer wire.

    Also there are only 2 sticky mounts that can’t be reattached once removed so I’d recommend to plan where you want to mount the camera in terms of the lens’ view prior to installing. Not sure if I can but will upload more photos later of the camera in action.

    Recording times are trash.

    After owning this dash cam for a couple of months I do love it picture is nice and clear and installation was a breeze and being able to use an app on my phone to view saved videos and whatnot is great.

    What I don't like about it is they claim it has continuous recording but it does not it only saves clips when you tell it to "save video" and those are only 30 second clips up to 1 minute. Have witnessed 2 separate accidents in which I told it to save video and it only goes back 10 seconds from when you give the command and then then saves the next 50 seconds totaling into a one minute clip.

    But do far i love how the video records in short segments. It makes it easy to save small videos.

    Best Dash Cam

    Excellent dash camera. It also has lane departure alert and collision alert. It will let you know when there are speed cameras. I am very surprised at how much this little camera can do and the quality is superb.

    Good camera

    Pretty good dash cam overall. It's actually smaller than a GoPro which surprised me when I opened the box. The app leaves a little to be desired but overall is satisfactory.

    Must have when driving

    I feel protected now and covered a dash cam is a must have nowadays drive out here especially in California I don’t have to worry abt anything god forbid I get in an accident I’m covered show the police and my insurance coverage the video and that’s it get my payout for my vehicle no long delays and legal disputes avoids a headache and stress you have to protect yourself and this is it. All the features are great especially once it senses an impact the dash cam automatically locks in your video from the g sensor from an accident and if something light and want to record something simply hit the ok button you are shielded from the front and back and somewhat of the side I feel really safe now having this honestly and best investment for driving I purchased from Bestbuy on the $200 or more $0 apr for 6mos and that also uncluded their $50 professional installation quick and easy hard wired so it’s always on and running and even when ur not at your vehicle any impact to vehicle will start to take pictures ha I love it! Can’t go wrong I highly recommend go for it!

    Poor video. You can’t see the display while on the windshield. Just today, I noticed something was wrong with the rear camera. Upon inspection, it was partially melted! I need to return this dashcam.

    Rexing Dash Cam V1 Plus - Best Dash Cam

    Rexing Dash Cam is awesome, the setup and installation were seamless and very easily and nicely tucked into the car upholstery making hiding the installation cables from visibility.

    The dashcam is clear both during the day and night, I could see the registration number of the other cars clearly from the recording.

    The video recording is stable and the voice recording is also very clear, can't wait to install the rear camera.

    I have only used a few of the features, the few I have tested worked perfectly.

    Not that impressed

    The front camera is excellent. The back camera is very grainy. I had mine installed by Geek Squad and it appears to have been done wrong because the rear camera images are flipped when you play the recording (ex. Objects on the right side of field of view as you look out the back of the car are shown on the left side). Rexing Customer Support is non responsive. There are probably better front/rear cameras you can buy for the money.

    Very clear imagery.

    A co-worker recommended this brand and so that's how I ended up with one. I've had my Rexing for a few months now and I'm very happy with it. The picture quality is excellent. And I found the directions easy to understand. My only issue is the fact that I have long nails and it makes it a bit hard to remove the micro SD card.

    Due to impatience on my part, I didn't update the firmware until the screen went white a week ago. Once I read the directions, it was easy to do. As well as setting up the date which I hadn't bothered to do either.

    Overall, I am glad I made this purchase and hope to actually capture something one day beyond the random bunny rabbit running thru my yard when I get home from work.

    Quality camera

    I have the Rexing V1P right now. I can’t wait to install my V1P+. The quality on the Rexing cameras is honestly the best out of all of the dash camera I’ve owned. The rear caner’s resolution could be better but I’ll live.

    Great hardware, but software is problematic

    I love my new dashcam; the resolution is fantastic, great views from front and rear and the installation was easy. But I wish the software was better. More on that in a moment, though.

    I've had two cams before this, but they were front view only and I never really "installed" them so much as just plugged them in and left the wire dangling. Given that this had a separate rear camera unit, I knew I wasn't going to get away with that and while waiting for the camera to ship I dreaded the installation and routing wires.

    But I didn't need to worry; the unit came with a really useful tool and plenty of cable. Rexing really stepped up by providing this tool with the cam and it worked wonders. I was able to hide every bit of my cable behind the trim and liner without having to unscrew or remove anything and the results look almost professionally done!

    The unit itself is pretty straightforward in its operation and the keys/menus are logically designed. Although it took a few drives with the manual in the car to get used to everything, the learning curve was pretty shallow and there are lots of nice features and a good allowance for customization. The way I mounted mine, next to the rearview, the main camera is still within reach to control or save a clip but completely out of my peripheral vision so as not to be a distraction.

    Same for the rear; it's small and unobtrusive and there's a thoughtfully small LED indicator that let's you know the camera is up but doesn't distract when you're looking out the rear view mirror. A lot of thought went into the design of the hardware and Rexing is certainly deserving of praise for this.

    I wish that BB would allow me to upload a video because the quality of both cams is fantastic! Day, night, direct sun, overcast and cloudy... it just shines and is better than any other dashcam I have owned previously.

    So why four stars instead of five? Well, it's the software. Firstly, there's confusion over which software to use - the manual mentions one, their website another. The problem is that neither one of them would connect with my phones!

    It's important to note that the Wifi AP when activated connected with my phone just fine - according to the Wifi screen on my phones. But neither piece of software seems to recognize that the OS says it's connected. I tried an Nexus 6p, which is about as plain vanilla an Android phone as you can get as well as an older Samsung S7 but while both instantly connected to the WiFi on the cam in the Wifi screens, the Rexing software and the TimaCam software never completed the connection.

    I was finally able to connect with an old Lenovo A10 tablet and at that point was able to view and download videos. But I don't take the tablet in the car with me so the only time I can use it is when I am home.

    This renders one of their best features - Wifi access - almost useless for me. That's a bit of an issue because if I want to show a clip to the police, my choices are limited to either handing over SD card (and who knows what else might be on there!) or having to go home and bring the tablet to the station. It's also an issue because the software is also your only way to update the firmware.

    Hopefully they will get these connection issues fixed soon. But otherwise, this is an exemplary dashcam with all the features and coverage you could ask for. And the imagery is incredible. Also loved the GPS feature; there is a special player you can download to view clips on your PC and it plays back with the GPS mapping in real time. Just wish I didn't have to jump through so many hoops to download the clips in the first place!

    I'd still recommend it highly, but with the warning that there may be issues with particular phones connecting properly.

    Really expected better

    I hate to start a review on a bad note, but please read beyond the first paragraph, so let me give a few nice points about the Rexing V1P Pro first.

    It has a front and rear camera that records individual time stamped HD (1080p) video with audio and includes GPS data in the file. WIth the very generic JMS DVR GPS Player on the PC, downloaded from their site, you can actually see the video beside a map of either Google Map, Baidu map or openstreetmap. As the video plays, it tracks it on the map with speed, Lat/Lon, date/time and a speed curve. Since this data is stored in the MP4 file, it can easily be shared with anyone that may want all of that information. The wide angle lense is decent enough to catch everything in front of it, claims it is 170 degrees. However, it seems to be a bit less than that as I feel it is more than 10 degrees to see full left/right of it’s view. It also has WiFi built in, but more on that for the rest of the review.

    For most products, I can pick them up and run with them without giving much thought to the user manual. However, when I opened this one and noticed the 3M sticky pads, I figured I better learn this product before I screw it up and can’t move it. With a few grammatical errors and typos in the manual, it made me check the origin and as expected, made in China. No problem, as so many items are made there, just makes a little more sense for the errors. Anyways, I follow the directions for installing the cameras, which are very basic and has all of 2 lines about the rear camera. The rear camera has no real instructions, but rotates on its mount 180 degrees, one would assume that it can install in any direction at that point. The issue is that my truck has a sliding glass window and to install it I need the USB cable to run away from the window, see picture. What I then find out is it does not flip. What I managed to miss was the one line under Display Control “On the rear camera, you can toggle the built-in switch to horizontally flip the rear camera image.” Which talks about the LCD Display, not under the “Mount the rear camera” section. This is a mirror flip, lef/t right, not any other direction. So, now all of my rear videos are upside down and it doesn’t come with any replacement pads. So, take this as a heads up, if you get this, install the rear camera with the logo right side up.

    The power cable is a standard 12v cigarette lighter adapter with a 12ft cord and a 20ft USB cable for the rear camera. More than enough cable to reach around most vehicles. They also include some wire clips, but the majority of it will require tucking in the headboard or somewhere if you want a clean looking install.

    With install out of the way, inserting the SD card and formatting is fairly simple. However, the menu system is super clunky. The Rec/Mic buttons have left right arrows, but for the menu it is up down. For some menus, the screen shows “OK” on the right side, above the M button, but the OK button is on the left side. Another thing is that you can set the date/time, but that means nothing to it as it will take a GPS time, not from your time zone by default, unless you go further into the menu and set your timezone. Why not put that right next to or above date/time because I have lots of video that is now way out of time before I realized that. The OK really got me when i hooked it via USB to a PC and you have to hit OK, on the other side, to make it a Mass Storage device, or else it will boot up into the regular recording mode in a few seconds.

    Mentioned a couple times in the manual and on the box is the Rexing Connect app. With WiFi enabled on the dash cam, you can directly connect to it from your device. I was able to get mine to connect and I could start/stop recording and watch live video. However, the main reason I wanted the app is to access the videos from the device from anywhere and that is the one function that would not work for me. I contacted support through their site with no reply over a week, I contacted them again and the reply I received was literally the line from the manual on how to connect to WiFI, which isn’t the problem. I replied to that email and still no reply. Reviews on the app show that I’m not the only one with an issue.

    As for quality, it claims that with the main camera it can record up to 2160p (2880x2160) when the rear camera is not connected. However, I didn’t notice much a difference between that and the 1080p (1920x1080) settings, even on a 4K monitor. Both resolution settings were grainy and a bit blurry, however, the file size was more than double for the same loop length. It’s not bad for just needing to see a scene, but your not going to catch plate numbers if moving. Being that the cameras are attached to a fixed mounting bracket, some windshields may be at a bad angle for catching reflections. The camera is adjustable in the main device, but since the housing angle is fixed, much of my daytime video was even more muddled by the reflection of my dashboard in the windshield.

    Now, I want to say this will capture those moments that you most need it, that even with the bad user interface and expected higher quality that it could save those moments. However, today I discovered that it wasn’t recording during part of my trip, no idea why. Also, the user manual says the locked videos will be in \CARDV\MOVIE\RO, but my manually locked videos weren’t, but amongst the many other files, which will be found by date once the non-locked files are overwritten.

    Easy to use HD dashcam combo

    Pros: Front and Rear HD cameras; Easy to use; Easy to setup - Literally:

    1) Put in a memory card (Note - not included)

    2) Plug into 12 volt outlet in car

    3) Mount front and back cameras via sticky tape mounts and you are in business.

    Depending on how clean of an installation you'd like to have you can use the included plastic trim tool that lets you quickly and easily tuck the cables from the cameras under the edge of your car's dash/window/floor trim. There's also an available optional (separate purchase) hard wire kit to wire the cameras directly into your fuse box to keep your cars 12volt plug free.

    Video quality is great and quick and easy to lock and save a video. Comes preset to loop recording video - Now if someone cuts you off - just tap the "OK" button and the last recording is locked for later viewing and won't be overwritten by the loop. Files are easy to remove and view via PC.

    There's a bunch of additional features like gps location reporting of the video; changing resolution, loop recording, accessing the camera via wifi on your smartphone, etc. But 99% of the time your use it to record your front and back - which is what you want.

    Only cons were 1)I have a Toyota 4Runner and the window goes completely down and the tailgate/hatch completely lifts up, so not ideal to mount the rear on the window. 2) No Micro SD memory card included.

    All in all - excellent dash camera setup.

    Nice camera to have for my safety and documenting

    This unit comes with a front camera to install on the front windshield, a rear camera to install on the rear windshield, wiring to the power outlet, wiring to the rear camera, and a tool and adhesives.

    Setting up this camera takes a little bit of work to make it look clean and proper. Once installation is complete, it's a nice little system to have to document your daily drives. The system takes a little bit of time to learn and get used to the buttons and interface. Once installed, it records on a loop so that it can keep documentation of things you may want to have on file. I'm hoping that I can capture something on video if I need to if something was to ever happen.

    The wires are probably the hardest part of this install for a novice like me. Fortunately Rexing provides a tool that can help you wedge the wires into spaces in your cars moldings. I was able to do this easily and make it look like a clean install without hanging wires everywhere. The camera takes a nice clear picture and it can record in 1080p and higher formats.

    I purchased a separate 64 gb micro SD card to go with this in order to utilize the cameras recording ability so I can play this back on to my computer in case I need to record something for upload to YouTube or such. There is an app for Rexing that you can download as well. I tried it for ios on my iPhone XR, but the app was pretty useless and didn't function properly at all.

    Overall this is my first ever vehicle camera and I'm happy with it. It's given me some peace of mind for having a big brother eye on my car while I do my best to drive safe on the roads. I wanted a camera like this to document the crazy and unsafe drivers all around me on my daily commute and car pools. Hopefully having this will benefit me in an insurance issue if something arises in the future.

    Very nice Dual Camera HD Dash Cam

    This is my first ever Dash Cam. This V1P Pro offers a lot of nice features, such as front and back camera’s with nice HD 170° ultra-wide-angle lenses. It offers loop recording, Wi-Fi interface for viewing on you smart phone, built in GPS logger and even collision detection.

    Reviews:

    INSTALL - Install went pretty smoothly. I have a 2017 Honda Accord. I simply used the furnished plastic tool to help me snake the cables behind the rubber seal that goes around all the interior panels. I mounted on the top left corner of the windshield to keep it out of my center view.

    (This is a fairly large unit even in the top left, but I am getting used to it over time.)

    Cable are plenty long.

    Before sticking the mounts to the windshield I powered up the unit to make sure my orientation and line of sight was all correct. (I highly recommend this as it would be difficult to remove the adhesive once it is in place). The Back cam has a nice up and down swivel adjustment and the front camera lens is on a ball and socket type of swivel to get the best angle. I was a little worried about getting a good picture since my windshield curves in where I mounted it, but the lens moved enough to get a good angle. I only used 2 of the windshield clips on the cords where they exit the roof liner, otherwise I found by disconnecting cables to remove the unit I would pull the cables back out of the roof liner. I did install a 64 MB mini SD card for storage (not included). 64MB will get you 7-10 hours of recording depending on the camera resolution – 128MB - 14-20 hours

    Overall a pretty smooth install. I would say maybe 30 Minutes.

    OPERATION – I’m the kind of guy that does not want to pull out a Manual, but I did find and needed to for this unit. The menus and button control have a small learning curve. I would say that the user interface could use a cleanup, or add a couple more hardware buttons. I found myself leaving the manual in the car in case I needed it for reference.

    Once you have this system installed, all you do is forget about it. You start your car and it starts recording automatically.

    You can select from a couple of different resolution setting for the front and back camera, and you also have the choice of turning the microphone off so it will record no audio. Another option you have is turning the screen saver on. I set mine to turn the screen off after 1 minute. I did not have this ON at first and it got awfully annoying at night to have a bright screen lit up in your field of view.

    Speaking of field of view…There is a red light that flashes behind the center two buttons while powered ON (indicates RECORD mode). I do wish you could disable this as this bright red LED behind these button shows up in the gap between these buttons and shine in your eye, (mostly noticeable at night). Not a huge deal, but I do find annoying.

    I did have a little trouble connecting to the Wi-Fi of my phone, my phone’s said I was not connected, but when I looked at the head unit it stated I actually was though and connection was made.

    PLAYBACK – You can view videos on your smart phone using the Wi-Fi connection and the ‘Rexing Connect’ APP, or you can view on your PC.

    To playback your video’s on your PC you can remove your SD card to transfer the files, or plug your front camera unit into your computer via the USB cord. Either way, playback will be faster and more stable if you transfer your videos to your hard drive before viewing.

    Now you simply download the GPS Logger Software from Rexings website and install. (Side note – When I first started the software, all the menus were in Chinese, but once I closed and reopened the software it then changed to English). Once you install the software, you simply open the video file(s) you would like to view. The playback shows, the video (front OR back Cam) along with speed, date, time, longitude and latitude and even a speed curve. There are also areas for G- Sensor data and Acceleration. (These were blank on my viewing, perhaps this is only populated after a crash).

    I would like the ability to view the video from the front and back cameras at the same time. I could only find a way to view one camera at a time.

    OVERVIEW / FINAL THOUGHTS –

    PROS:

    Once set up, easy to use (Fairly easy set up in my case)

    Nice picture quality from both cameras – Day and night

    Decent Software showing all basic info

    GPS

    Video Looping

    Wide angle lens

    CONS:

    Flashing red light under buttons (maybe being a little picky here)

    Pretty large front camera unit

    User interface could be cleaner

    Unable to playback both camera views through software

    No Battery (must be plugged in for power)

    Overall, I am pretty happy with this unit. The cons stated above do not affect the basic function of what this unit is meant to do..Capture video.

    If you are in the market for a dash cam, I would not hesitate to recommend this one.

    I personally don’t NEED one, but it sure give you a sense of security knowing if something happens, you have record of the facts

    BIG unit provides HQ dual-cam video w/few issues

    PROs:

    - Sharp (though admittedly tiny) LCD display provides real-time picture-in-picture view of front and rear cams with the ability to switch between views on the fly

    - Rexing Connect app and built-in WiFi allows a smartphone to be used as a live monitor, control device settings, and even serve as a simple viewer/editor for videos and pictures without having to remove the SD card from the unit

    - Onboard GPS sensor (no external puck needed!) provides time, location/speed data for tagging videos and images; you can further customize the display overlay to include your license plate if you wish

    - JMS video player (download from Rexing's website) allows simplistic video playback/snipping along with display of sync'd GPS time, map, and speed sensor data for each clip or image

    - Very clear/clean video regardless of operational mode--dual 1080p/30fps recording with rear camera in operation and up to 2160p/24fps with front cam alone; audio pickup was sensitive enough to make out conversations in back seat over the radio

    - Included manual claims max microSD card capacity is 128GB though the website and my experience indicate that a 256GB microSD will also work just fine

    - Box includes a VERY secure mounting system for the main unit (slide-click tabs), a pry tool for headliner/body panels, and a connecting cable long enough to reach most installation locations for the rear camera

    - The loop recording mode is greatly appreciated as I don't have to manually sift through useless video files--the camera will record over the oldest unlocked video file if my SD card runs out of room--and the adjustable gravity/impact setting will lock a video against being overwritten if a collision is detected

    CONs:

    - There are no two ways around it--the front camera unit is BIG. Yeah, it's got the camera, screen, controls, and GPS hardware built-in, but you have to mount it near the headliner in order to use the downward sloping/facing screen and still have convenient access to the controls...it doesn’t take up a huge amount of real estate in my field of view relatively speaking, but it’s definitely noticeable. What’s more, it’s deep enough that it may impact how far forward you can angle your sun visor

    - You've got to be 100% certain you're all in for a dash-cam--a neat/secure installation will require 3M adhesive patches on the windshield and some deft cable routing underneath the headliner (or around the floorboards, or both) to get the dual cameras powered without long wires dangling in your field of view. At the very least, you can't set this camera up on a suction mount near your dash to see if you like it first given the orientation of the controls/screen...it has to be installed HIGH on the windshield

    - Unless you opt for the $10 hard wire kit, you will eat a cigarette lighter/12V socket with the power adapter for this unit--there is no onboard battery (Rexing claims it's for the supercapacitor to provide stable power in extreme temps) or pass-through 12V power adapter. If you normally run a GPS or other 12V item in your vehicle (USB charger, perhaps?), you'll need to figure out another way to power one unit or the other (or get a splitter)

    - The rear camera swivels almost fully around forward to back so there shouldn't be many situations where it can't be mounted on a rear windshield. But do be aware that the switch on the back unit only changes horizontal orientation; it doesn't flip it vertically as some have complained (note that the manual never claimed the switch was for vertical picture flip in the first place--see page 28). Bottom line—you need to audition the setup on the dash-cam's display BEFORE pulling the plastic off the cam's adhesive backing and sticking it to your rear window because you won’t be able to correct a flipped image in software/via settings

    - You can get used to it relatively quickly, but the user interface could use a little TLC. The two center buttons (Rec and Mic) have horizontal arrows on them to make it easy to scroll left to right through recorded videos/images. However, LCD screen navigation uses those buttons as up/down arrows, but also mixes the hard button icons with the navigation directionals on the screen in such close proximity that you eventually have all the arrows sitting right on top of each other—but all menu navigation on screen are vertically oriented. It's a little thing, but why not make the menu navigation match the printing that's already on the illuminated buttons so you don't have to put any prompts on the screen at all?

    -- What's worse is that a large 'OK' image on the screen is placed right above the physical Menu button, and what looks like a menu icon is located to the far left over the physical 'OK' button. Here's the rub--if you press the physical button under the screen image of the OK function, you actually exit out of the menu entirely rather than just selecting the highlighted option on the screen (the “OK”), but if you press the button that the LCD display indicates is the Menu//back button, you actually change your selection on the menu rather than go back one level or exit the menu system entirely

    - Sigh…another app that requires an account creation/log-in to reach full functionality. Fortunately, this seems to only effect you can still browse videos/images and adjust unit settings without having to create an account if you wish…that, at least, is a welcome relief from so many other apps that require you to surrender all your personal details before you can even start activating "standard" features that are supposed to be available right out of the box

    Summary review:

    This is a full-featured dual-cam setup that provides excellent quality video and enough hardware in the box to get you going in both forward and rear-facing setups. Yeah, video quality takes a bit of a hit up front if you run in dual-cam mode, but I'm not sure who really needs 4K video in a dash-cam setup anyway (maybe I'm not really the target demographic for this device). Installation takes a bit of time and [probably] know-how, or even a professional, if you want it to look good/neat...this isn't a dash-cam that actually sits on your dash so you need to be patient and deliberate about camera placement on the windshield and routing the power and connecting cables above and below your line of sight.

    I'm not sure how hard a pass-thru 12V power adapter would be but it would have been nice not to sacrifice my only 12V plug to keep this unit running--I went low-rent with a splitter but I've seen the hard wire kit here on Best Buy that I'll probably pick up at some point down the road. Maybe it's just me, but I've seen WiFI radios fit into smaller enclosures than the one used for the rear camera so the thick mini USB to mini USB coupler cable that runs from the front camera to the back feels a little clunky and was certainly a bit of trouble to snake around to the back of the vehicle. What about a hard wire running power from the rear camera to a running/tail light, then just stream the rear image to the front regardless of how far back it is--especially as the onboard WiFi already allows me to stream from the main unit to a cell phone or tablet. Installation notes/observations aside, be aware that this unit comes with no onboard storage of any kind, so unless you plan to stream to your cell phone exclusively, you need to plan on a separate micro SD card purchase at a minimum (Rexing actually has very specific recommendations about which cards are suitable for dash cam use so do a little research ahead of time if you plan to maximize your experience).

    Other than the usability niggles noted in the interface, the size of this unit is a bit of a turn-off (for me)...maybe it's not THAT much bigger than competing models, but it definitely doesn't hide away behind the rear-view mirror, and in fact really needs to be right up front at the top of your windshield so you can use the controls and navigate the menus. Normally, that might not be a problem, but I'm a tall driver in a fairly small car; for me, the V1P Pro does intrude a bit on my field of view even though it's not all that big in the hand. But otherwise, there's not much to complain about. If you've got the itch to get a dash cam mounted in your vehicle, this one provides a lot of capability, crash/accident-sensitive features that preserve your recordings, the ability to monitor and playback recordings via WiFi without having to touch the card inside, and it offers high quality video to boot--definitely a safe bet if you're in the market!

    Works great

    Stays on the windshield pretty well. there have been a couple of really hot days that it came off but I expected more so I’m happy. The screen is a nice size. The app works well. I put a 256gn card in it today to hold more videos because my husband likes that it will randomly record while parked in our driveway(I set the parking sensitivity to high).

    Even tho it’s for the front I might buy another for a rear camera.

    Great camera for the money

    Great camera for the money. I purchased one for my vehicle and another for my wife's. Installation took 10 minutes with the included plastic pry/wedge tool. The wire was easy to tuck up in the fascia at the headliner and around the door using the supplied tool. We've had the cameras for a couple months now. Other reviews will state the section cup doesnt work and the camera falls of the windshield-- here's the trick to keep that from happening. I live in florida and mounted the section cup to the windshield when it was cool outside. When the sun heated up the windshield throughout the day, it caused the suction cup to break free from the glass. I went out in the middle of the day when the windsheild was still hot and remounted it and it has been on there ever since. I believe the issue has to do with expansion and contraction of the windshield. Simple fix -- mount it when the windshield/temperatures are at their warmest.

    Nice camera good video

    I’ll start with the bad to get it over with, the WIFI connection to get video off the camera and change settings sucks. When I can get it to work the transfer speed is 2mb/s or less, if you have one video you want to transfer or 2 not so bad, if you want to transfer all of the videos from your memory card this is painfully slow and if you upgrade the memory card you could be looking at hours to transfer the videos, especially since it is prone to disconnecting also. do yourself a favor and either swap out memory card or plug the camera in via USB.

    Now to good part. the video quality is good, it does get muddy looking at night or once the sun starts going down but that is tough for a lot of cameras due to light condition constantly changing. I am still playing with the sensors for the collision detection either while driving or parked. I have it set to maximum detection right now and closing doors on my car will sometimes set it off and bumpy roads in areas I drive, or railroad crossings will set off the collision detection. Reviewing videos on my phone with the app is neat feature but difficult to use because of the poor quality of the Wi-Fi connection. The GPS feature is nice and could come in handy in the event I need a record of how fast I was going at a certain time as this information is stamped right onto the video (I had to turn on this feature it was not on out of the box.)

    Overall, I would definitely recommend this camera to People looking for a simple dashcam for their vehicle.

    Best dashcam in the market

    I used to rely on Garmin a bit, but they last 2 dashcams i owned, the dashcam 35 and the 45 kept showing me messages about their intolerance to heat and kept on crashing first 10 minutes in. Their Wifi communication with the mobile devices was fairly secure, only painfully slow, and lacked parking mode unless you buy a separate device. NOT with my new ROAV C2 Pro, NO. This dashcam does much more for a few more bucks, it’s tougher, faster, and does not require a separate device for parking mode. Love it

    Great camera

    Just set it and forget it. I haven't done much night driving so I can't comment much on that. You can seem plates in certain conditions. The only problems I have had is on acouple warmer days I have returned to my car to find out it fell. Since summer is coming I might try some command strips or something. Also, transferring videos, taked multiple minutes or so. Mine is set for 5min intervals and it takes about that long download to your cellphone. When viewing from the app it shows speed but when its downloaded it doesnt.

    Compact front and back dash cam

    I wanted discreet compact dash cam for both front and back. This is compact has all the function i was looking for.

    I wanted no screen. Fast video download via builtin wifi with a app.

    Thin and long wires for rear camera which some brands you would need to pay extra for. I have three row SUV it made it to the rear window hiding long wires under panels. Working very good so far only con is sensitivity is little high on continuous recording when u hit a uneven surface it starts to record.

    Clear video and does the job

    Awesome product. The replay is clear and its not too difficult to navigate. Only confusing part was connecting to the app. It only connects for me if the car is on. I did not know the only way to see videos was connect but it is not a deal breaker. You can save/download the videos to the app and replay as much as you want but this is after they are saved thus allowing you to view with or without a connection

    Made better for Androids so far.

    TL:DR

    Pros

    - Voice Command works nicely

    - 3-channel Cameras provide greater coverage

    - Installation was fairly easy, just tedious running wires

    - 4k Resolution on front camera

    Cons

    - No option for choosing video loop size

    - No angle mobility for inside camera or camera as a whole

    - Limited settings and explanation.

    - Playback/Preview issues with video on Iphone

    - iPhone App is sluggish and unresponsive, Android works well

    I’ve owned about 3 dash cam’s before this one, all which have been pretty good and done the job. One thing that the others never provided was rear camera support which is what caught my eye with this one. Some dash cam’s have a second, rear facing camera attached to the front camera, but it doesn’t really give you a good view behind your vehicle. This one provides all 3 cameras.

    I bought my first Rexing product about 2 months ago, a phone holder for my vehicle. Its exceeded my expectations and out-performed other top-rated products. That really gave them a leg up with this new product when looking to upgrade, so I was eager to see what else they could offer.

    Installation

    Installation was pretty straight-forward. The instructions were limited, but at the same time you are just mounting and running cables really. I’d say I spent about 45 minutes total with the installation. I drive a medium size truck and the cables were plenty long enough to go from the front to the back of the vehicle. One thing that seemed cheap were the little sticky tabs that hold/clip the wire and you can stick to along the bottom of the windshield. The stickiness didn’t hold and the plastic tab that holds the wire is cheap and bends easy, but the 3M sticky pad for the camera mounts was solid.

    Also, when mounting the camera, there is no option to move or angle the front or inside camera. You can only slide the camera on and off the mount. If you need to move it to catch another angle for something, its not possible without removing it from the mount. The same with the indoor camera, so make sure before applying the mount to the windshield, you have the perfect angle. The rear camera however does allow you to rotate the camera up and down, so not sure why there was no flexibility with the front cameras.

    Operations

    One of the nicer features of this camera is the voice command. It works well, simple to use, and commands are fairly easy to memorize. They give you a card which I’ve been keeping in my truck until I get the commands memorized. It picks up on the commands well and reacts pretty quick with an audible confirmation. I have to repeat myself sometimes, but overall I really like it.

    Settings seem pretty limited. No custom video quality settings for each camera, no option for selecting loop size. Its pretty bare currently, this could change in future software updates.

    Display

    So far from my experience, the display is okay. You can pick between showing the front camera, the back camera, or all 3 cameras. The inside camera doesn’t show by itself, only when all 3 cameras are selected does it appear. Not sure if anyone would want that feature, but just in case they were.

    The inside camera has a weird hue to it on mine, it looks to have a purple type of night vision as you can see in the picture which might affect it during the day, but the front and rear camera look fine on the display. I don’t recall seeing the “hue” when I first started using it. You can see it in my attached picture.

    Also a slight annoyance but not a big deal, the arrows and symbols on the camera referencing the buttons on the bottom don’t quite line up or its maybe designed to be firmly placed to the left of the buttons its assigned to (see picture).

    Playback/Preview

    Ok this is the biggest issue I’ve had so far. I have been able to connect my iPhone 11 to the camera via Wifi but cannot play/preview any of the videos. Operations are slow and when I try to hit play, it attempts, then just doesn’t do anything. You can still connect the camera to a computer to download the files directly via memory card adapter or connecting the camera directly with USB which I haven’t tried. This is kind of a big deal and hoping its easily fixed with a software/firmware update. The previews do show GPS speed, coordinates, time, and date which is nice.

    When I voice command the photo function, it takes a picture of all 3 cameras which is nice. I don’t want to have to complicate the voice commands with specific cameras. I was able to access the pictures without issues on my iPhone, but again the interior camera looks a bit messed up with the color.

    There’s also a Movie Mode in the settings menu of the camera itself. There is no explanation of these: 4k 30FPS, 4K+Pull 1080P, 4k+Ins 1080P. Not sure if this was for all cameras or the main one.

    Update: I tried accessing the camera from an Android phone, the app and video playback worked very well. So many of my problems were related to the iphone app.

    Conclusion

    Overall the camera seems to have a lot of potential, but its almost like the camera was rushed to hit the market. The app struggles and lags big time on my iPhone while videos don’t playback, and more thought could have been put into the installation and user experience. It does have some good qualities though such as voice command and have a thorough coverage of your surroundings. I gave this product 4 stars instead of 3 because of the Android success I had with it. I’m sure with time, it will become a better device with updates.

    It’s not ok to be JUST OK at this price

    Dash cams are fantastic on keeping people honest. This does have 3 cameras but there is a caveat if you want 4k recordings.

    Pros:

    • Comes with everything you need to get started

    • Fantastic rear camera resolution

    • Voice commands is responsive

    Cons:

    • Menu and graphic user interface are from the 90s

    • Manual is lack luster on menu options

    • Can’t download vids straight to your phone

    • Only adhesive mount in the box

    • No built in battery

    • Interior camera doesn’t articulate

    I will break down my review in key categories.

    Setup:

    It comes with everything you need to get started including memory card. The instructions are horrible. It took me 2 hours to install all the cameras and to tuck all the wiring into the car’s trim pieces for a clean install. Do note that there isn’t a suction cup mount in the box. Only 3M foam tape. They do offer a suction cup mount but only as a separate purchase. The wiring for the rear camera is just long enough for my car. Running the rear camera in an SUV might be a challenge as I feel like it could use another 5ft or more in cable.

    Camera and recordings:

    Having 3 cameras is a fairly new concept as 2 camera setups have been around forever. The interior camera is great if you’re doing ride share or would like to document the interior cabin. The interior camera does have night vision but the failure to articulate the lens is the biggest disappointment. The recommended mounting location of the dashcam is to the right of the review mirror. The interior camera is directly in front of the front passenger seat and barely can see the driver. Bad design.

    One of the specs is that this camera is able to record at 4k resolution. The only way the front camera can record in 4k is if you only have 1 other camera, interior or rear, record at 1080. If you want to record all 3 cameras simultaneously, all cameras will be 1080 resolution. Which isn’t too bad because 1080 does serve the needs for most. I actually have a hard time telling the difference between a 1080 vs 4k recording since the lens is mostly rubbish. Its an ultra wide angle so I still have a hard time reading license plates unless its within a few feet away. That’s with both 1080 and 4k. Perhaps having options to record in 60fps would help but this dashcam only records in 30fps. The device doesn’t have a built in battery so you can’t review footage while the car is off or inoperative.

    App:

    The App is ok. Just plain ok. You don’t need the app to run the dashcam but it does allow you to view the footage straight on your phone. Streaming the footage to your phone is actually pretty fast but the caveat is that you’re unable to download the footage onto your phone. Swing and a miss! In order to get footage off the camera, you will need to take out the micro SD card and plug that into your computer. Very inconvenient if you needed to share footage with authority.

    Summary:

    I expected more in this price range. The 90s menu graphics, Inability to record in 4k with all 3 cameras and can’t download vids straight to your phone is why I can’t give the Rexing dashcam 5 stars.

    Solid 3 Camera System

    I was recently rear ended and thankfully the other driver took responsibility right away, but I realize this is not always the case and video evidence is cheap insurance compared to my deductible. This is a solid 3 camera system, which gives you that important back view and uses GPS to show location and speed (important info to have in an accident). After initial setup, it works well with little upkeep. My only issues are the mount design (fixable - see below) and the interior camera color (annoying, but ignorable).

    Pros

    - Includes 3 cameras allowing you to record your front, rear and interior

    - Records audio, GPS position and speed on each video clip

    - Voice control to activate key features - it worked well for me if you limit interior noise and speak clearly. Even repeating a command now and then beats clicking thru menus!

    - Good day time image quality for from and rear cameras

    - Starts recording as soon as the car is started and overwrites old recording based on memory space

    - Built in screen is big enough to display all 3 camera views and it also has a speaker to allow you to watch recorded clips (in a pinch)

    - Kit includes a 32GB micro SD card with adapter, small trim tool, wire clips and additional adhesive pads

    - Cables for the cigarette lighter power adapter (12ft) and rear camera (20ft) are long and should work for most vehicles

    - All cameras are adjustable to allow some mounting flexibility

    - Videos can be viewed and download from a phone with the Rexing Connect app and the SD card is easy to remove to view them on a computer.

    Things to Consider

    - Best Buy indicated that my vehicle was compatible with the camera, but the included adhesive mount did not work for my Jeep due to the angle of the windshield. The mount is at a fixed angle and my windshield was too flat, meaning the screen and interior camera would be pointed at the ceiling. This would probably be an issue for some trucks, vans and commercial vehicles. This delayed my install a few days, but thankfully Rexing makes an affordable suction cup mount which allows you to adjust the angle and reposition as needed.

    - My interior camera is sharp, but the colors are way off. Everything has a purple tint and this appears to be a pretty common issue. It still does the job, but it could be better.

    - The Rexing Connect app requires a direct Wi-Fi connection to the camera to work – meaning there are a few extra step to get it to work each time you use it, but it worked great for me once I figured it out. Steps: Turn Camera Wi-Fi on (voice commands make this easy), disable cellular data, go to your phone’s Wi-Fi settings and select the camera’s hot spot, open the app and connect. The camera Wi-Fi turns off automatically the next power cycle (just remember to turn you cell data back on).

    - The parking monitor feature requires a separate hardwire kit, which looks to be a good value. I will probably purchase this in the future to clean up the install a bit, but I wanted to make sure everything worked first.

    - My Jeep proved to be a challenge when mounting the rear camera. The rear camera uses an adhesive pad to stick to your back glass, but that did not work for my soft top since the window is plastic and removable. I mounted it to the center roll bar for now using zip-ties and it works great. I might look at a permanent mount in the future.

    Very nice dash cam!

    Out of the box - Nicely packaged and great quality! Instructions were very good and easy to follow and set up.

    The unit has all the things needed to set up the dash cam in the front and rear using 3M adhesives. Make sure to allow it to stick for 20 minutes prior to installing the dash cam. The adhesive is very strong to make sure you place the bracket in the correct spot or else it will take a lot of strength to remove it. The adhesive sticks and holds even in high temperatures.

    While the adhesive was setting, I formatted the SD card and within seconds the card was formatted. After 20 minutes I connected the dash cam and plugged it in and started driving. See uploaded photos for clarity, my windows are tinted and you can still see out them without issues. I could only upload photos not videos but the video footage is as clear as the still photo. Inside and outside the cabin.

    The video clarity is amazing and I love that it captures the time, date and speed during recording. The only thing that I am unable to upload is a photo of the three video feeds on the screen. While driving the dash cam display shows the 3 camera footage and when you download the card its separated as F (Front), R (Rear), T. The dash cam also has the option to take photos.

    The dash cam has a good number of features to optimize the video feed. The reason why I gave it 4 stars is because the cables. There are so many cables and if you outlet is in the center console which was my case it has to be set up and in the middle of the gear shifter. The reason why is so that it turns on automatically when you start the car and immediately starts recording so you dont have to worry about turning it on.

    I would like to see this unit have a rechargeable battery to get rid of all the cords especially when hooking up the rear cam.

    Overall, the Rexing V5 has a lot of great features and the video quality is a excellent for a dash cam. I would recommend as a must buy if you dont mind the cords and looking for an easy to use and set up dash cam.

    GOOD VALUE 4K DASHCAM 3 CAMERA PACKAGE REXING V5

    REXING - V5 PLUS 3-CHANNEL 4K DASH CAM 2.7 LCD WITH VOICE CONTROL, WI-FI, GPS - BLACK

    Model:BBYV5PLUS

    Best Buy Tech Insider Network

    GOOD VALUE 4K DASHCAM 3 CAMERA PACKAGE REXING V5

    The REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM is an attractive and affordable bundle of gear, with 3 cameras, included memory card and more.

    There is a lot to like about the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM. For example, all the camera lenses are adjustable to allow for optimal aiming. Everything you need to get up and running is included. There is also a “starter” 32 GB SD memory card and cables, and mounting gear.

    A few things you should know that are not obvious from the description. If you choose to operate all 3 cameras at the same time, then all your images are all downgraded from 4K to 1080p. If you want 4K then you can only record one 4K image and up to one other 1080P image (for example front 4K and rear 1080p). In my case, I really don’t need the cabin camera, so I’m fine with just using front and rear view.

    The 4K vs 1080p issue probably does not matter as much as it might sound. The image sensor listed on the REXING - V5 PLUS website is rated for 5MP (megapixels). To get a true 4K image you need at least an 8MP sensor. So, if this information is correct, then the 4K image is being upscaled anyway (which is common on many cameras in this range and not necessarily a show stopping issue).

    To use the rear camera, you need to snake a cable from the camera head unit to the rear window (it is not wireless).

    You should also know that there is no suction cup installation, only the industrial sticky tape mounts are provided. Since I lease my car, (and it is due to be turned in shortly), I did not want to risk permanently mounting the dashcam. I assume there is a solvent that would remove the tape if needed. On the plus side this means the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM is not likely to fall from your windshield and cause a distraction as I have experienced with other suction cup mounted dashcams. The camera can be removed from the window mount, the window mount is more or less permanently stuck to the window. (a little 2 inch square).

    Picture Quality [PQ] on the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM is good. The front facing camera has the best image quality of the 3 cameras. The rear camera is also very good. However, the interior camera is not that good at all. Everything in the cabin has a purple tint that is very easy to notice (see pics). My roof is black but shows as bright purple in the recordings. In a side-by-side test with a different 4K camera my wife and I both preferred the overall appearance of the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM image, but it was artificially softened and thus missing enough detail to easily read license plate numbers on the car in front of you.

    The Voice Control Commands work well for example “Turn on the Screen”, “Turn on WiFi”.

    PROS

    - Three Included Cameras (Front, Rear, Cabin) for Three Streams 3-channel recording

    - All Cameras can be angled or rotated once in place to fine tune where they are pointed

    - Cables are plenty long enough and the rear cable is in two parts for easily hiding wires

    - Seems like a Sturdy Unit Overall

    - Includes all required mounting hardware

    - Includes Memory Card

    - Voice Commands that actually work well

    Rexing support was excellent and we were able to work together to find a bug preventing the phone app to connect via WiFi to the dashcam. This updated app version will probably be released by the time this review is published. The app is primarily used to view or download videos to your phone. If you want to do real movie processing you will probably be better off removing the SD card from the dashcam and editing movies on a real computer. I do wish the app allowed you to change all the dashcam settings instead of only a few, but again, once you have it set the way you want, you probably wont need the settings anyway.

    Physically, the installation of the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM was easy and straight forward. The menu keys (not touch screen) were a little cumbersome, though you probably only have to use them for initial setup. There is no tilt or swivel of the screen itself, so wherever you stick the mounting bracket that is where it goes. Really, you don’t want the distraction anyway, so my suggestion is to put as far away from you as possible.

    RECOMMENDATION

    If you are after an affordable and complete all in one 3 stream camera system (maybe you drive a car for hire), then the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM is a great choice for consideration. If you just want the best forward facing dashcam image you can get, you might want to shop for better optics in other models.

    Good 3 camera system

    THE BREAKDOWN:

    This REXING- V5 PLUS 3-Channel 4K DashCam 2.7 LCD with voice control, Wi-Fi and GPS is priced right and is very easy to install.

    Everything you need to get this up and running is in the box. It even included a 32G SD memory card to get you started. Once installed the cameras are easy to move around and fine toon to your needs.

    One thing to note about this camera system is that you enable all 3 cameras then the quality will drop from 4K to 1080p. You can however have your front camera on 4K and the rear camera will be at 1080p. For myself I really don’t have a use for the cabin or inside camera. If I was a lyft or Uber driver I could see the use.

    The installation was pretty straight forward, and it even came with a little plastic tool to help hide the cable. This whole process took me around 20 min.

    The images were best on the front camera. The rear camera was good but not excellent and the cabin camera was the worse of the three. Like I said that wasn’t an issue for me as I will not likely use the cabin camera.

    For me the app was just ok. With the app you can view the footage straight on your phone. The streaming of the video to my phone really wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t instant but it was good. If you want to download your data you have to take the micro SD card out of the camera an plug it in your computer. Then download the media to save it or share it.

    PRO’s:

    -3 cameras

    -Comes with everything you need to get it setup and using it

    -Good voice commands

    CON’s:

    -No built in battery

    -Cannot download your video straight to your phone

    -Menus need updated

    SUMMARY:

    Overall, this product worked as intended, and I would recommend this to a friend if they are in the market for device like this that is portable and gets the job done.

    A triple camera 4k dashcam worth considering

    The Rexing V5 Plus is a complete package needed for recording incidents in the car. It is a 3-piece system consisting of a front, cabin, and a rear camera. The front and cabin camera is housed together, while the rear camera is a separate unit that needs to be wired to the front unit.

    From a design point of view, the Rexing dash cam (front unit) is pretty large, and I had a hard time finding a good spot on the windshield of my truck. Especially, since a large area near the rear-view mirror is occupied by the safety sensors. This, and the particular share makes it quite difficult to mount it discreetly. I have tried multiple places, but never found a place that hides the camera from outside view. Other dashcams (especially the wedge shaped ones) are easier to do so. Furthermore, the position of the cables (1 for power, and another for the rear cam) does not help at all.

    As for the video quality: the front camera offers 4k resolution, but I kept it at 1080p, siding with a higher frame rate. The overall video and images from all 3 are adequate. The cabin cam has a purplish tint. The rear camera is ok. Overall with stock settings, the videos look ordinary - it gets the job done in terms of clarity, color etc., but nothing to be blown away withI didn’t fiddle much with the settings yet as I was trying to test it out with “out of the box” settings so I believe there is room for improvements.

    Mounting and setting up went without a hitch from the camera point of view. The included mounting hardware is straightforward to use. However I wish the instructions were a little more elaborate.

    The Rexing V5 offers WiFi connectivity via the Rexing Connect app. For a couple of days I couldn’t connect it to the camera at all. However, an app update seems to have solved this issue. The app is good for video viewing (including a live view), but not all the settings of the camera can be controlled by that - this is a major bummer for me as I wish I could change those without fumbling with the on-camera buttons (which is not easy while it’s mounted).

    Overall, I’m happy with the Rexing V5, as it offers a good package in this 3-camera system. WiFi connectivity is a good added bonus though the app has limited functionality. The video quality is workable with default settings. Definitely something to consider if you’re in the market for a 4k dashcam.

    Ideal for share ride drivers

    >> Overview

    The Rexing V5 Plus Dashboard Camera comes with three (3) cameras, front, rear and cabin, allowing you to have recorded video of your surroundings and inside your car whenever needed. It has voice commands that allow you to control the most common actions on the device while driving so that you don’t get distracted reaching out with your hand to, for example, stop/start recording. The device can be configured to record feeds from one, two or the three cameras, so it is very versatile. It starts operating as soon as you turn on your car and starts recording by default.

    Although I am not a shared car driver, I believe this device would be very useful for them. As a private driver, it provides my family and me with peace of mind, as we have video recordings in case we need to have video proofs or even provides video evidence of events that happen outside while we are driving. In these modern and litigious/dangerous times, I strongly believe a dashcam is a must have.

    I think this device is between 4 and a perfect 5 from what I have experienced in the last few days:

    - Pros: voice commands, three-way cameras, high quality video.

    - Cons: Concealing the cables is hard.

    >> Installation/Setup

    This device doesn’t come with a suction cup to attach it to your windshield and detach when desired. As a result, picking a good place where to attach it to the windshield needs some time.

    The booklet Installation steps states to first place the 3M tape near the edge of the windshield and secure the T-interlock, but then you may encounter issues securing the actual device to T-interlock (not enough space to slide the camera in) or you may not be pleased where the camera resulted to end up located at. So, what I did first was to plug the camera and turn on the car and do the basic camera configurations; next I tried different positions close to edge of the windshield that would feel more convenient and easier to access the device. After finding the perfect spot, I placed the 3M tape and attached the T-interlock which allows me to unplug the camera and detach it from the windshield whenever needed.

    That is the easy part, the most difficult part is concealing the cables, it was a nightmare for me to place the cables under the trim (I installed the camera on a RAV4). Luckily the device comes with some 3M attachments for cable management that can be attached at different locations for securing the cables, especially useful for installing the rear camera. This is a drawback for any device that needs to run cables around the car.

    In summary, I’d first plug in the camera and determine where things look better before placing the 3M tape and mount.

    >> Cameras and recording

    As mentioned before, the device has three (3) cameras and you can setup to have only one, two or the three recording at the same time. In addition, you can physically remove the cabin cam if wanted; perhaps for private users inside recording might not be something desired, but definitely for a shared driver having recording inside the car is a must.

    Each camera has its own file that is saved on the SD card and the video quality is very good. I’ve noticed that the videos recordings are 1-min long, and I haven’t tried changing that, I think for the most part that should be sufficient. The device rolls over old footage, so the 256GB SD car that came with the device seems good enough so far.

    >> Voice commands

    This is one feature that I like very much for controlling the device while driving, it does an excellent job at recognizing our voices/commands. There are commands to start/stop recording, for changing the view of the camera (rear, front or all).

    There is a chart with the different commands supported by the camera that comes with the device. Perhaps having a “list commands” command would have come handy to hear what commands are available and not resort to the chart (while the different commands are memorized).

    >> App and Wireless connection

    This is the next most useful feature, basically controlling most of the settings through the phone App and being able to see the recordings on my phone rather than on the device or on a computer. The App allows you to see the videos, lock them secure if needed, and to delete them. It also gives you live feed of the cameras, so I am thinking on perhaps getting a Tablet and install the App there to get easier access to the rear camera when backing up, for example.

    >> Connecting to PC

    I’ve been unsuccessful to connect the device to a laptop or desktop or docking station. According to support it is due to how much energy the device needs.

    >> Park monitoring

    Unfortunately, the Park Monitoring module needs to be purchased separately, I wish it was part of the default package.

    Well constructed, super clear 4k display

    Very professionally packaged product, comes with all the necessary wires to connect. I have been using the HF612 mirror for about a year. Overall the picture quality is exceptional and the video transmission does not have any delay. I use this mirror in lieu of my original Audi mirror since I have tinted windows and viewing before was virtually impossible, especially at night. With the Vantop HF612L that all changed. Once installed I am able to view cars clearly in a panoramic 170° front cam and 160° rear cam. Super clear and even allow you to see better at dusk with camera. You can simply swipe the mirror with your finger to change the view from rear to front or to display both front and back. The display takes up the entire mirror so you don't have a gap between the frame of mirror and the image for a OEM look.

    Includes an optional GPS sensor to track your route that you can later download from a Micro SD card and view your route on a map next to the actual video.

    The HF612 mirror also serves as a cam to record any events in case you are in an accident. The G sensor which records events if a sudden bump is detected however, is a little too sensitive and probably records more events that will not be overwritten then I would prefer even though I have it set to the lowest setting.

    I also purchased their optional wiring kit so that the power automatically engages mirror when you turn on your car and turns off mirror when you turn off your car. Otherwise you can use the supplied wiring harness that connects to your cigarette lighter outlet.

    Overall the Vantop HF612L mirror is well constructed and well worth the price, and I would definitely recommend.

    Vantop Mirror Dashcam/Rear-View Camera

    This dashcam is awesome!! Fairly easy install. Plenty of wire to install the rear-view camera, even on a Chevy Silverado 2500HD long-bed. The mirror is touch-screen and super easy to use and setup. You can run the mirror display "off", rear-view video, front-view video, or both front & rear. The picture quality is very good for the price point. Caught a rollover accident on the camera a few weeks ago and uploaded it to the computer and everyone was surprised at the quality of the video. Highly recommend.

    Happy but...

    I'm very happy, so far, with my purchase of the Vantop HF612L but it turns out that just yesterday a vehicle hit me on the back of myy car and as I removed the camera and into my home and to my pc, every single file had been deleted, more specifically, recorded over because of the normal handling of taking it down from the rearview mirror and into my home as the camera registered those movements as "accidents". Luckily, I had pointed my cellphone to the camera beforehand to record one of the videos before removing the camera, but this shouldn't have happened. There must be a way to make sure some of the videos are marked as 'crucial', so to speak, to prevent them from being erased or recorded over.

    Good dashcam

    I bought this as a combo dashcam/backup cam for my 2012 jeep wrangler, which did not come with a backup cam. This was much cheaper than the quotes I got to install a backup cam and connect it to my central display and add a dashcam. I am very happy with the recorded picture quality, I normally drive with the screen turned off, becuse during the daytime even when it is on you can also see the natural reflection in the mirror, and at night the headlights behind you dorwn out the image. Even when the screen is off, if you put the car into reverse it will come back on with the backup lines, which is a nice touch. However the rear view camera is not ideal as a backup camera because it is so high.

    Great camera for everyone!

    I got this camera as a gift. It's so easy to use, and took only minutes to set up the APP and install in the car. Almost being the dash cam at lowest price, this little guy has built bells and whistles such as WIFI connectivity, nice night vision, LCD screen. I was in a couple of unplesant incidents so this is an affordable way to keep myself protected. I have purchased another unit for my BFF as a X'mas gift. It's a good way to give "peace of mind" to the love ones.

    Great image for the price

    I spent a few days trying to decide what the best image for the lowest price would be. I bit the bullet and order this. It only records when the vehicle is on and there is no battery in this unit. The image quality during the day and at night is really good for this being under $100. The app is pretty handy for saving images or videos directly to your phone without having to pull out the SD card. I would buy a 2nd one for my other vehicle. So far it has lasted through the 90+ degree days of summer we have had, and hasn't fallen off the window as others have stated, but only time will tell if it can handle the winter months too.

    Dash Cam

    I got this dash cam for my daughter to put in her car. I was going to give her mine and take this one but this one has more bells and whistles than mine and since she is a less experienced driver I thought it is best to put in her vehicle. It is extremely helpful as it has the crash notice if an accident is about to occur. It also has night vision which most don't unless you specifically look for it when you are in the market. I feel much more confident this will not only help if an accident occurs but it also makes her drive safer since she knows this is recording her driving habits! I love how Best Buy has a variety of items to choose from when you are shopping for a specific item!

    Terrible as a backup cam, decent as a dash cam.

    Purchased mainly for its backup camera feature. Received it and was happy to install it. The mirror itself was easy to install and use as a front dash cam. The issues arose once I tried to install the rear camera, not because of the install but rather because of the way the camera is made and how it’s displayed on the mirro screen. For some reason when sat perfectly level, the camera was tilted amd the feed was at an angle which looked weird. Additionally, the backup camera is too zoomed in and makes everything look super close even if you have room left. We tried in different scenarios and adjusted the camera location many times, it just wouldn’t work properly. The backup camera lines and zoom arent able to be adjusted meaning you’re screwed if you want to use it to back up correctly. Ended up returning it and buying a standalone backup camera. Perhaps its good as a dash cam because the quality of the feed wasn’t bad, but for my intended use it wasnt good. It does have cool features such as blind spot monitor, so as long as you’re not using it as a backup camera you should be fine.

    Absolutely awesome. Almost Amazing.

    i am in love with my new dash cam. i can record the front AND the back while also doubling up as a backup camera when i reverse. as far as i can tell, it is able to record sounds, speed, direction, time, and it records the front in 2k and the rear in 1080. it doesn't come with a micro-SD card so without it you can still use it as a rear-view camera. it has sensors for backing up and for assisted driving. this thing made just brought my 2012 onto 2025 no joke way ahead of the stock tech most cars come with. the biggest let down to me was the fact that i couldn't see the front and the back at the same time i can only see one or the other. there's another brand sold by best buy that has more capability such as simultaneous view, and a better price range, but there's a reason why this one ultimately wins in my book.

    it is not better than the other brand mirror dash cam best buy has for sale, but this one can be bought with a proprietary hardwire kit, which means you don't have to use up the cigarette lighter in the car and can instead be connected out of sight to the cars fuse box. WAY easier to do than it sounds, and best buy did a great job at cable management. there's way to do this with dash cams that don't come with proprietary cabling but ultimately this was the way to do it for me since i eliminate compatibility issues since its made to work together.

    Great Product

    Both front and rear cameras are great quality and clear resolution. I love that it records both front and back up camera the entire time it is running. I had it installed and works great. The back up camera is a little big but I can deal with it. The only major issue I have is the mirror does not fit properly to my car. If the connections where located on the sides or bottom it would not be an issue. I would recommend this for sure.

    Decent rear viewing, not ideal for backing up

    This is a decent product that gives your car a unique look.

    PROS:

    * Crisp and clear front and rear video

    * Easy to toggle between front and back

    * Can be turned off to use just as a mirror

    * Has a few safety features to go with it

    CONS:

    * After a few hours continued use it starts to blank out

    * Picture freezes and sometimes won't work at all

    * Camera has to be mounted inside the car rather than outside

    * Camera angle doesn't camera make it clear how close the vehicle is to backing up to an object

    * Reset button should be underneath the mirror not back of it

    It is a cool product to have as it makes viewing your rear in a different light. For those who don't drive much it is great to have. As a backup camera to assist with parking, not that great.

    Great dashcam!

    Installed this rear view mirror dashcam on my 2013 Tiguan without backup camera to help me back out of parking space and record video if any accident happen. The lane assist and blind spot assist was an added bonus. The whole process to install the mirror was pretty straight forward and really easy to do. Couldn’t be more happy with this purchase.

    Great Camera, Poor App Execution

    --- SETUP ---

    The setup of the camera can be quick or lengthy, depending on how you want to take care of your wires. The camera comes with a cigarette lighter charger with the cable protruding from it and a USB to allow you to connect your phone or other USB powered device. The rear view camera is a separate camera that can optionally be installed and that connects directly to the front camera.

    --- FEATURES ---

    4K recording, front and rear facing camera, 64 gig micro-SD card included, GPS, Alexa compatible, internal WiFi, touchscreen, and wireless transfer of videos or pictures to your phone.

    --- EXPECTATIONS and PERFORMANCE ---

    I’ve had a total of 4 dash cams and this one is by far the most superior. For starters, it includes everything you need to be up and running in no time. More specifically, you don’t need to buy a separate micro SD card, as a 64g one is included. By connecting the Drive Smarter app, you can be guided for the installation. I did all the steps up until I had the option to connect it to Alexa. I tried about 5 times and even though the Alexa app would recognize it, when trying to pair up, it failed every single time, so I wasn’t able to test the Alexa functionality. Regardless, I was able to use it without it.

    The Drive Smarter app leaves a lot to be desired. I have Norton mobile protection on my phone. Upon trying to use the app, I kept getting constant warnings that the websites the Drive Smarter app was using were unsafe and Norton insisted on me leaving that app quickly. As a result, I didn’t use the app’s GPS functionality. Even when I turned off my Norton protection, I didn’t like that I couldn’t use the Drive Smarter GPS map in landscape mode. It only allowed me to view the map while the phone was vertical. Ultimately, I used waze for navigation but I allowed the camera to record everything.

    I installed the rear camera to face the back of my vehicle. I can now clearly see how close a car gets to me and gives me a more clear idea of what’s behind me vs. my own vehicle's rear view camera that activates when I put it in reverse. I wish there was a way to only show the rear view camera with just a push of your finger, but that wasn’t possible.

    One thing that I appreciate from both cameras is that they are installed with an ultra sticky pad vs. a suction cup. My previous dash cams have all used suction cups and they will eventually fall off with heat. These sticky pads have strong adhesive. Hence, it makes them more stable and will stay on your windshield until you remove them. That being said, you are committing to the location that you install it on, but you have an additional adhesive pad per camera included.

    Lastly, you can transfer files to your phone by using the Drive Smarter app. It will connect wirelessly to the camera and you can see what’s been recorded and save the file to your phone. Three times, though, the app did freeze on me and I couldn’t get the camera to go back to recording mode without having to turn it off and on. The camera itself is great, but most of the bugs I encountered stemmed from using the app in some sort of way. I am glad that the app is optional and not essential to the experience.

    --- APPROVAL ---

    With 4K resolution it’s much easier to record and read license plates in vehicles even at night. If you want a quality dash cam, this is the way to go.

    Less than stellar experience

    The packaging of the dash camera is a good retail box with Cobra branding and an image of the camera on the front. There are various details called out and the ‘Alexa Built-in’ logo on the front. The back of the box labels the camera as ‘the ultimate smart dash cam’ and provides a diagram for the different features of the camera. Inside the box, you’ll find all the parts of the system to make it work. I surprisingly had a difficult time getting into the box and for a moment, I thought a part was missing (the magnetic mount). It ended up just being tucked under a flap that I thought I already pulled everything out of.

    Once you have everything pulled out of the box you should have the following:

    1 - Dash Camera

    1 - Rear-facing camera

    1 - vehicle charger with Micro USB plug

    1 - short USB-A to Micro USB cable

    1 - rear camera extension cable (USB Mini to 3.5mm plug cable)

    1 - magnetic mount for the main camera

    2 - adhesive pads (1 large, 1 small)

    The first thing I noted about the main camera is how heavy it is. It’s a substantial piece of equipment. I’ve used many dash cameras through the years and this one feels and looks kind of like a point-and-shoot camera. The next thing I noticed was the types of connectors used. The main camera uses Micro USB and the rear camera uses USB Mini. I found this to be very odd considering they are pretty outdated technologies. Given the cost of this product and the fact that it is new to market, I really expected USB-C as the connecting technology. That said, the use of the older types of connectors was very disappointing to me. I was, however, impressed to see that a 64GB Micro SD card was included and already inserted into the slot of the main camera.

    Because of the fact that the camera (front and rear) require cables to connect, the setup can take a while if you properly dress your cables. Since I am a stickler for cable management, I took a lot of care hiding the extension cable between the main camera and rear camera. I do have to admit that I wasn’t sure if the cable would actually reach by looking at it. It was long enough (I have an SUV), but just barely.

    The camera/video quality is very good. It is much easier to see things like license plates and tell the make/model of a vehicle than with non-4K dash cams. Even though the quality of the video should make or break the user experience, I have to say that the app does leave something to be desired. I had some issues connecting to Alexa and even transferring video from the camera to my phone using the app. I would assume that when the app gets an update this system might be more valuable.

    This seems like a good system, but it does have some places where improvements could be made. It's a hefty investment for something that isn't great out of the box.

    Excellent picture quality and tech savvy

    This camera has impressed me thoroughly with it's clarity in 4K from the front facing camera. The picture is crisp and shows a lot of detail in the scene. The camera is about the size of a point and shoot camera or activity camera. Also the rear facing camera displays at 1080p which is pretty adequate in itself. Overall you get a great view of front and back activity in order to keep yourself safe and also to document any unfortunate happenings in traffic. There is an available option to add a 3rd camera to this so you can record in cabin activity, but you would need to purchase the 3rd camera separately.

    I was not realizing that I needed Alexa in my dashcam, but after using it for a few days I have been pleased with the convenience of my smart speaker assistant coming on road trips with me. Cobra did a great job adding this feature into the dash cam as it allows me to control my music, get directions, and ask my general questions all while my hands remain on the wheel.

    The camera has a lot of tech built into it and I've driven around a bit, and haven't had the alerts notify me yet. Items such as red light cameras, or speed cameras. Police activity and traffic alerts have not popped up on my dash cam while I have been driving around. There are also nice features like emergency alerts or parking mode alerts that will activate your camera if needed.

    The 3 inch touchscreen is crisp and clear, and houses the touch buttons for recording, microphone, Alexa, and settings. You can use the settings button on the dashcam and navigate it or opt for using the Drive Smarter app, which has worked well for my iPhone. The app is useful and allows for easy setup and getting to the options you want. The app acts much like a navigation app and a home app for the Cobra dash cam system options/settings. The app can feel a bit laggy and slow, but it gets the job done.

    I've liked that the app works well to pull video or photo stills from the device and you can load them into your smartphone photo gallery. No need to pull the micro SD card out each time, as the bluetooth connected phone and dashcam communicate well with one another.

    You will need some patience to connect the cameras to your choosing. The cameras will need to have wire run from the front camera to the cigarette plug lighter, and then the rear camera wire will plug into the main front dash camera. Each person and vehicle will handle the placement of these wires in different ways, but it did take me a good 30+ minutes to get cameras situated with the provided adhesive and the wires run from front to back of the car.

    Overall I have liked this camera system due to excellent picture quality, ease of pulling videos from the dashcam over to my phone, and for some savvy technology built into here. I also like being able to have a magnetic dock that attaches to the windshield mount. This makes for easy removal to pull the camera down from the windshield in case I need to hide it or take it out with me. Hoping this lasts for years to come.

    Another Good Product From Cobra

    Cobra has long made excellent radar detectors, and I have owned several over the years. For that reason, I was interested in their products when looking for a new dash cam. The SC 400D was of interest, because it offered both a front camera and rear camera, and voice command via Alexa. In addition, features such as GPS, Parking Mode (motion and impact detection), Emergency Mayday Alert, and Incident Reports are functional advantages.

    What’s to like:

    • The dash camera has a 3” LCD (OLED per website) Touchscreen with 4K UHD Video, providing clear and sharp viewing. The field of view shown is excellent. Furthermore, it can support two additional cameras, one of which is included in the package: a rear-view camera.

    • The power cable for each of the cameras is very long. Though less so for the dash cam, a long cable is needed to connect with the rear-view cam.

    • Parking Mode is certainly a potentially helpful feature. To function, a consistent source of power needs to be provided. That means you need to plug the power cable into an “always on” socket or hardwire the camera. “Always on” is drawing on your battery, but it is a low voltage drain and shouldn’t be a problem with a healthy battery. If you are still concerned about battery usage, you can select one of several cutoff times.

    • There are Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) and Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) features included. (NOTE: Provided information regarding both come with an important caution: Both are to be considered only for limited informational purposes by the driver. They do not control the auto. It is the driver’s sole responsibility as to safe operation of the vehicle.)

    • The rear camera can assist with what is going on behind you. (NOTE: It is not a backup camera, per se. There is no grid showing proximity to objects behind you.)

    • Mounting is done via adhesive pads which hold the camera tight! Caution: Be as sure as you can that you have the correct spot for mounting each camera, because the adhesive, which ongoing can be your friend, is not going to want to turn loose.

    • Bluetooth and dual-band wi-fi are supported.

    • Alexa is built in.

    • An SD card is preinstalled in the camera, a bit unusual these days. To prevent a recording or snapshot being inadvertently erased, cloud storage is available.

    What’s not to like:

    • Camera positioning for viewing is limited to vertical adjustment. No horizontal!

    • The Drive Smarter app feels like it is still in Beta and is the weakest component in the package. Friendly, it is not.

    • For the GPS to stamp your location on video, the camera must be hardwired (optional wiring kit) and connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot in the car.

    • Even though Alexa is built-in and shows to be connected, using voice commands is dicey at best. So far, turning camera on or off is all that works.

    Overall, the SC 400D is an excellent dash cam with helpful features beyond just taking quality video. Hopefully, the app will be improved sooner than later, but don’t let the app turn you away from the cam itself. The cam alone is a worthy device.

    Dash Cam 3.0

    Over the years there have been many iterations of the dash cam. For the most part they are quite limited in their functional capacities, and typically don't offer much of anything new or useful. However, the Cobra SC 400D is an exception as it strays well off the path of simple duplication.

    Cobra is well-known for production exceptional quality radar detectors. There is Cobra, and then there are "all the others." So when the opportunity arose for me to get the SC 400D, I knew that I was going to get a high-quality product. In all honesty, I wasn't really prepared for a product that so outweighed my expectations.

    As I unpacked the camera from the box, the first thing I encountered was a quick-start guide that is built into the box, that is, when you open the box, the quick-start guide pops up. Pretty cool. So I followed the very limited set up, and in a matter of minutes I was ready to install and start using the dash cam. (This included the download and setup of the companion Drive Smarter app.)

    Basic installation is nothing more than choosing the spot on the interior windshield where you want to mount the camera, and then peeling the sticky tape on the mounting base and attaching it to the window. Then plug in the power cord to a lighter outlet and plugging the other end into the camera. After connecting the power, the unit goes through a startup routine and makes itself ready to use, and begins recording.

    What I first noticed was how unbelievably clear and detailed the display is. I have mine set to record at 4K. There are also two other settings, which although not 4K, are QHD and full HD...both very high and clear quality. I then left it in the car the rest of the day, and when I got home that evening I checked out the recordings.

    Before I cover the quality of the recordings, I want to point out that the camera is capable of understanding a basic set of voice commands, such as "Turn Screen Off," "Turn Screen On," and "Take Photo." There are a few more as well. As I was driving, I made it a point to take several photos, including night-time photos, full-direct-sun photos, and various other photos under differing conditions.

    I disconnected the camera from its mount, took it inside and connected it to my computer via the included USB cable. In all sincerity, I was stunned by the superior quality of both the videos and the photos. My expectations were exponentially surpassed. I have included a few photographs for you to see. Once the camera is connected to your computer, it is just a matter of accessing the photos and videos via your file manager. As far as the very basic operation of the dash cam goes, that just about wraps it up. HOWEVER, there is so much more to know about the Cobra SC 400D!

    The unit is Alexa capable. After enabling the blue tooth and connecting the camera, the Alexa app pretty much set itself up. The dash cam comes with built-in GPS. The app will display a map that can be used to give an overview of notifications supplied by other users, such as speed traps, traffic patrols, accidents, etc. There are several touch buttons on the screen you can use which change depending on whether the unit is set to record or not. When set to record, these are "Stop Recording," "Take Photo," "Toggle Audio Recording," "Lock Video/Emergency Recording," and "Alexa Wake Button." When recording has been stopped, there is the "Begin Recording," "View Videos," "Toggle Audio Recording," "Enter Settings," and "Alexa Wake Button." In "Settings" there are several items to choose from.

    That is a basic overview of what the dash cam will do. So let me go into a few other aspects.

    The voice commands make using the SC 400D fairly simple to use as far as basic functions go. There are seven commands you can use, most of which can also be accessed via the on-screen buttons. The GPS component allows a watermark of your location to be imprinted on the videos and photos. Although these are the numerical coordinates, you can simply plug these in to google maps to find out the exact location. The watermark also includes the date, time, and the speed at that moment. All videos are recorded in one-minute intervals.

    So, with all this being said, what do I think about the Cobra SC 400D?

    Overall it is a superior, very-high-quality dash cam. The video resolutions available are all extraordinary. It is easy to use and it is a very user-friendly piece of equipment. The learning curve is very small, and even first-time users of dash cams will find the SC 400D easy to use. The camera has a ton of features and options, including automatic crash detection, and automatic alerts. Seriously, it is an amazing product. With that being said, there are a few downfalls. Let me explain.

    One of the first things I noticed is that once you mount the base via the sticky tape, it is mounted. There is no changing your mind and moving the base somewhere else without risking damage to the base. To Cobra's credit, they utilize only very-good quality components, including the sticky tape. The base is designed to swivel front to back, but not side-to-side. This is a bit disappointing as I can visualize a multitude of situations where one might want to adjust the field of view right or left.

    The complete library of recognized voice commands is limited to seven different commands. There is no ability to voice control the unit to stop recording video. There are various other voice commands that would go a very long way in making the SC 400D easier to use.

    If one doesn't want the power cables visible, it would take a lot of effort for a novice to run the cords along the trim and/or through the headliner, especially the rear view camera. I intend to hide all my cables, and will have to figure out a time when I can set aside a couple of hours to do so.

    The last thing that is somewhat of an issue for me is that the network depends on drivers providing useful information. There is no ability to do this without serious distractions if you are driving. This surely creates a lack of provided information as most people would probably be unwilling to pull over and upload this information to the network.

    So the question remains, is the Cobra SC 400D a good investment? Would I recommend it to a friend or family member? The answer to both is a very loud "YES!!" There is no product on the market that doesn't have some issues that some people won't like. Those same issues for one might never cross the mind of another. So all criticisms should be taken with a grain of salt, and these have been provided simply to help you make an informed decision.

    This is the absolute best dash cam I have ever owned. It's quality is flawless, and I truly expect this to be one product I will consistently encourage others to buy. As I said, I would HIGHLY recommend the Cobra SC 400D to anyone who is thinking about purchasing a dash cam.

    great quality camera

    The main reason I am giving this a 4 star. I don’t like the mounting option myself. I feel it makes it more of a permanent solution. I have a couple other cameras that I have used and one goes over your rear-view mirror. While the other one has a section type mount. I like those because I can take them easily to another car and back as needed. This set comes with a double back tape and once mounted its mounted. My other gripe is the app is not the best. I feel like as I do things within the app, it disconnects and then has to reconnect. This, I am sure can get fixed thru updates. So not a deal breaker, but just annoying. Lastly, I wished the rear camera was universal with the option to have it be able to mount next to the camera to capture inside vehicle with a short 6 inch or so cable, or provided a third camera for that.

    I also wished it had a screw mount so that I could just use it as a webcam lol. But that, I don’t count towards giving it a 4 star, just an idea.

    Overall, though, with the 4k this looks amazing. Video quality if great. It also comes with a 64gig SD card. Other brands I have tried out don’t come with a SD card at all. I love how it looks. Its small and looks like a camera and not all huge and bulky.

    If you are looking for a high end quality camera, I do suggest this if you don’t mind it installing on a more permanent level.

    A nice solution that has some issues

    The SC400D will be my second dashcam, my first being a unit from Escort that shares power with my Escort radar detector.

    The SC400D’s front-facing camera is quite an improvement over my older one, what with Ultra HD 4k pixel resolution and more options. This system also comes with a rear-facing camera, and it can additionally support an additional1080P cabin-view camera.

    The SC400D has Alexa built-in, and I’m sure many people will be familiar with it. Not me, however, as Google Assistant has been my go-to assistant for years. The SC400D has an accompanying app called Drive Smarter – which provides real-time alerts for Red Light and speed camera locations, as well as police activity, viewing your videos/photos, and more.

    In my time using the Drive Smarter app, I found the app to be a work-in-progress. The functionality mostly works, while some features are a bit flaky. For example, when I bring up a video for viewing, the Drive Smarter app connects to the dashcam. Once you view the video and return to the list of other videos, the app once again must connect to the dashcam to see the next video. These connection efforts can take 5-15 seconds each time. I’m doubting that that’s what the developers had in mind. I found it quite irritating and plan on connecting the dashcam to my laptop for quicker transfers.

    The dashcam itself feels solid. And it offers a good number of selectable features. Features can be turned on using the Settings option on the dashcam’s screen (recording has to be turned off), or by using the Settings option in the Driver Smarter app.

    The front- and rear-facing cameras offer Ultra HD 4K resolution, while the cabin-view camera offers Full HD at 1080 resolution. 4k recordings, by the way, have 4 times the resolution than 1080 has. The cabin-view camera has a swivel-mounted design that gives you 140 degrees field of view of the cabin’s interior and includes Infrared vision for clear inside video. I don’t have the cabin-view camera, but t from what I know about it, it should install in just a matter of seconds.

    Front-Facing Camera:

    -----------------------------

    The front-facing camera looks and feels like a small point-and-shoot camera, although it feels solidly built, not flimsy like some I’ve looked it.

    On the top of the camera, there are two ports. One is a Micro USB port for the power. The second is the port where you plug in the cable to the rear-facing camera. The top/front of the dashcam is where the GPS/magnetic connector sits along with the adhesive pad to secure the dashcam to the window.

    On the right side of the camera is a slot for your Micro SD card slot, as well as a button that functions as a Lock Video/Emergency Recording button. A 32gb Micro SD card is included with the camera.

    On the bottom of the camera are two buttons. One is the camera’s power button, while the second is the Alexa mute button.

    On the left side of the dashcam is the mounting port for the interior cabin-view camera.

    Rear-Facing Camera:

    ----------------------------

    This camera is small, barrel shaped, and very light weight. On its side is a USB port that connects this camera to the Front-facing camera by way of an included cable.

    After testing the dashcam out for a while, I made only a few changes from the standard settings. One such setting was the G-Sensor. This setting, which defaults to “1”, determines the amount of jarring a vehicle must experience to automatically generate a video. This could be something as simple as going over a speed bump to experiencing an actual vehicle accident.

    Changing the G-Sensor setting to a “2” makes it less sensitive, while a “3” is the least sensitive. If you find the camera is automatically recording too many unnecessary events, change the G-Sensor from a “1” to “2” or “3”. Mine is set to “3”.

    I’ve ordered an installation wiring kit so I can permanently wire the dashcam to my car’s power. Once done, I plan to turn on Parking Mode and Motion Detection. Do keep in mind that these functions will only work if you have constant power going to dashcam.

    If the dashcam is powered down when the vehicle is turned off, then you can ignore this. If you plan on having continuous power going to the dashcam irrespective of the vehicle being turned off, I suggest you use the Auto-Shutoff setting. If not, you could slowly but surely wear down your car’s battery due to the dashcam’s continued power draw.

    Let’s say that you have Auto-Shutoff set to 4 hrs because the dashcam is always powered. That means that four hours after no more motion is detected by your dashcam, the dashcam will automatically shut itself off. However, when you start your vehicle the next day, the dashcam will not auto-start recording. If you set Auto-Shutoff to 20 hours, then the dashcam will likely still be active the next time you start your vehicle (as long as it is within 20 hours of the last time your vehicle was used). That means you won’t have to manually turn the dashcam back on. If Auto-Shutoff is not used, you could conceivably run down you battery if left running for too long - especially if the battery is old.

    For local storage, a 32gb SD card is included with the SC400D. Creating 4k recordings with a 32gb card will probably only last 3.5 – 4hrs before the oldest videos are overwritten. Because of this, I replaced the 32gb card with a 128gb card. Please note that videos/photos that are locked will not be overwritten.

    One last feature is the Cloud storage. This is a planned free service in which any/all locked videos/photos will be auto-copied to the Internet for later retrieval. Per my research, this free service won’t be available until sometime in 2022.

    From a purely functionality perspective – that is, its ability to record video/photos using the front- and rear-facing cameras - I very much like this solution and believe 5 stars is appropriate. From a whole system perspective, meaning using the Drive Smarter app and Cloud storage ability, I think 4 stars is appropriate.

    Great quality dashcam, troublesome app

    I have had many dash cameras and the video quality of this one is by far my favorite. 4K video is amazing and allows me to see license plates more clearly than ever before and with a 140 degrees field of view. That being said, the Cobra SC 400D has some flaws currently and I recommend you wait to purchase to see if they can iron out the issues that the Drive Smarter app currently has. If you just want something to record video and don’t care about the “smart” features, then by all means, you can’t go wrong with this unit. It was easy to set up and install using the adhesive stickers that are already attached. They have provided a spare set incase you want to relocate the cameras. The main mount is magnetic, so you can remove the dash camera and hide it away if you want very easily. The screen is easy to see in the right light, but with some sun glare, you won’t be seeing much. It is a bit small for my liking, but it is not too bad.

    In the box you are given a short USB cable, a long 12V to USB micro cable for the main camera, camera mount with GPS built into it, two sets of adhesive stickers, rear mounted camera, and a long rear mounted camera cable that is a small single post connector to USB micro. It took me a little while to figure out that the rear camera connector is located on the top of the dashcam and the side connector spot is if you wanted to add an additional in cabin camera, which would be great for those who do ride sharing. Also included is a 32GB microSD card, but you really should upgrade this if you want to record more than a few hours of video, especially at 4k resolution. The microSD slot is located on the side of the camera, and it is easy to get to. The camera lens also has a feature to reduce glare on the screen.

    The camera does not have any type of battery or capacitor built in so if you have a car where the 12v power turns off when you turn the car off, then the dashcam will power off as well and not provide any of the advanced feature such as parking mode using the g-sensor or motion detection. If you want to use those you will have to purchase a hard wiring kit. They are not very expensive; just be sure you find one that is compatible with the micro-USB connector…most of them are Mini USB. It would have been nice for them to have included some sort of internal battery though.

    My main gripe with this unit is the terrible Drive Smarter app. It is pretty good to make the settings changes to the dash camera and the map feature with reporting police, traffic, or cautions seems to work well, but they are reliant on a network of other users to all do the reporting…think Waze. So, I am not sure how many users there are, but over time it may grow and depending on where you live, this might be a useful feature. For me the main feature of this app is to view the video on the camera. It will use a Wi-Fi connection to the dash camera to view the list of videos. Each time you view a video, you must reconnect back to the Wi-Fi connection, and it is quite annoying. I am not sure if this is an issue with my phone (Galaxy Note10+) or I am doing something wrong here. Each connection takes about 5 to 10 seconds to reconnect and if you don’t know what you are looking for exactly, this could be time consuming. Hopefully this will get resolved on an update, but for now this is the main reason I cannot recommend this dashcam.

    Pros:

    Video quality

    included rear camera

    ability to add in dash camera

    bright screen

    built in GPS

    micro-USB

    included 32GB card

    Cons:

    Price

    no internal battery

    S1

    I like the setup where you can get "all the action" in one unit, Front, rear, and inside the vehicle. This either vindicates or accuses anyone who has on their "Not Me" tee shirt.

    Installation is not difficult, if you don't have a large SUV, such as a Tahoe, Suburban, or in our case, an Armada.

    The installation is still easy, but you need a 4 pin dash cam extension cable. I recommend that after the wiring is preliminary run, use heat shrink to maintain the connections. Tape simply doesn't work.

    Now to the camera(s).

    They work really good with excellent clarity.

    One thing I would like to see, for other folks, is the option to buy the extended cable. The overall lengths of the cables in the information would also be helpful, before you begin installation.

    Remember, "Slack is your friend" when wiring.

    Another drawback is Rexing does not have, that I have found, an owner's manual showing how to navigate after installation, for personalization.

    How do you remove snap shots?

    How to modify during a drive?

    On impact sensing, is it high sensitivity or high impact?

    Too many to list.

    Overall, it is a good setup, it does need some tweaking regarding customer information.

Almost being the dash cam at lowest price, this little guy has built bells and whistles such as WIFI connectivity, nice night vision, LCD screen. I was in a couple of unplesant incidents so this is an affordable way to keep myself protected. I have purchased another unit for my BFF as a X'mas gift.

    Great image for the price

    I spent a few days trying to decide what the best image for the lowest price would be. I bit the bullet and order this. It only records when the vehicle is on and there is no battery in this unit. The image quality during the day and at night is really good for this being under $100. The app is pretty handy for saving images or videos directly to your phone without having to pull out the SD card. I would buy a 2nd one for my other vehicle. So far it has lasted through the 90+ degree days of summer we have had, and hasn't fallen off the window as others have stated, but only time will tell if it can handle the winter months too.

    Dash Cam

    I got this dash cam for my daughter to put in her car. I was going to give her mine and take this one but this one has more bells and whistles than mine and since she is a less experienced driver I thought it is best to put in her vehicle. It is extremely helpful as it has the crash notice if an accident is about to occur. It also has night vision which most don't unless you specifically look for it when you are in the market. I feel much more confident this will not only help if an accident occurs but it also makes her drive safer since she knows this is recording her driving habits!

    EXCELLENT 2 CHANNEL DASHCAM

    The Rexing V3 Plus dashcam demonstrates good quality and performance. High quality dashcam video can be of extraordinary importance by documenting precisely what occurred in a traffic accident or incident, and the video quality of the Rexing V3 is excellent.

    The Rexing V3 Plus comes with a 12’ power cord with cigarette lighter plug, two adhesive windshield mounting brackets, six adhesive cable clips for the power cord, a USB cable for downloading videos to a computer and a plastic trim prying tool to facilitate concealing the power cable. The V3 Plus does not contain a rechargeable battery. Instead, it has a super-capacitor which is touted as being less sensitive to extreme temperatures.

    The Rexing V3 does not come with the required Micro SD card, nor does it come with a suction cup windshield mount or the hardwired installation kit which is required in order to use the Parked Vehicle functions of the dashcam. It would have been very nice for those essential components to be included with the dashcam in order for it to be immediately usable and capable of supporting all of the important functionality. The V3 requires a UHS1 Class 10 Micro SD card up to 256 GB capacity. Rexing warns not to use a San Disk ULTRA SD card.

    The Rexing V3 has two cameras and is capable of two channel, dual camera recording at a maximum resolution of 1080p at 30 FPS. If only the front camera is recorded, higher resolutions are available including 2160p/24 FPS, 1440p/30 FPS or 1080p/ 60 FPS. Generally, a higher frame rate will produce smoother videos. The video recording format is H 264 (.mp4 files).

    The front facing camera is adjustable for elevation with a knob on the left side of the housing, and the rear facing, cabin camera is also adjustable. The front camera sensor is a Sony Starvis and the cabin camera sensor is either a Sony IMX323 Exmor according to the Rexing website, or a Sony OV2053 according to the PDF Manual, or a second Starvis according to a Rexing marketing video. Both are f 1.8 aperture and have a 170° field of view, or the rear facing camera might have a 150° field of view according to Rexing web marketing material. The CPU is a Novatek 96660. The cabin camera has four IR emitters for night recording. The Rexing V3 also has a switchable cabin microphone .

    The Rexing V3 is not a three channel recorder, and does not include or support a rear window camera. There is a rear-camera input jack on the dashcam, which the Manual states is “currently not supported”. Hopefully, Rexing intends to update the firmware and support connection of a rear window camera in the future. The Rexing V3 cabin camera is ideally suited to taxi and ride-share drivers who want to document for-hire transportation. For the rest of us, the cabin camera might be valuable in documenting that the driver was awake and alert and not distracted or using a cell phone, etc., at the time of a traffic mishap.

    The Rexing V3 has an integral 2.7” LCD display with 16:9 aspect ratio. The display may be switched off (to prevent driver distraction), or it may be configured to display either camera full-screen, or one camera in full-screen with the other camera as a small, Picture In Picture display.

    All setup and operational functions are controlled with an array of five, small push-buttons on the bottom of the dashcam housing, most of which serve multiple functions depending on dashcam mode and interval for which the button is depressed.

    The left-most button is Power On/Off, which has the dual function of toggling the display screen. Next is the Menu button and the third and fourth buttons are the Scroll buttons for menu items, video playback functions, toggling audio on/off during recording mode (arrow down) and changing display views (arrow up). The right-most button is the “OK” button, for selecting menu items. Holding the OK button during recording locks the active video clip (1, 2 or 3 minute clip). Locked videos are preserved and protected from being overwritten (until manually deleted) during the continuous loop recording, with new videos overwriting the oldest files once the memory card capacity has been reached. Holding the Menu button switches between Recording and Playback Modes. Holding the Menu button for three seconds switches between Video and Photo (Still) Modes. There are numerous quality settings available for still photos.

    The Wi-Fi Connect functionality of the Rexing V3 allows connecting with the dashcam via the Rexing Connect smartphone app (Android and iOS versions). The app provides another means of downloading video files from the dashcam. Wi-Fi defaults to “Off” whenever the dashcam is power cycled, and requires being manually turned on when needed. Video files are large, so direct file transfer from the micro SD card to the computer worked best for me. Unfortunately, when attempting to connect the dashcam to Windows 10 computers via USB for Mass Storage (file transfer) or PC Camera functions, the computers refused to recognize the dashcam.

    GPS functionality is integral to the Rexing V3 Plus. When active, it embeds GPS data with the video files. Videos with embedded GPS data include route graphics on the map display and vehicle speed throughout the drive. Viewing videos with embedded GPS data requires downloading and installing the “GPS Logger” software (Windows and Mac versions). There are multiple, product specific versions of GPS Logger. The correct file for this model is: JMS DVR GPS Player V3_2.20 Release.zip.

    The firmware in the Rexing V3 Plus includes user selectable Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) which provides some lane-departure and following-distance voice warnings.

    The Rexing V3 has an accelerometer (G-Sensor) with three sensitivity level settings. In Driving Mode, a collision impact should result in locking the current video file for preservation.

    Parking Monitor Mode is only supported when the Rexing V3 Plus dashcam is installed with the optional Smart Hardwire kit. That accessory power cable connects to both an always hot fuse as well as to an ignition switched fuse in the fuse block. This allows the dashcam to differentiate between ignition On – Driving Mode, and ignition Off – Parking Mode. I believe that it would be very useful to have the ability to manually switch the unit between Driving Mode and Parking Mode via the switches on the dashcam body when using the cigarette lighter power cord.

    Parking Monitor Mode has the choice of either G-Sensor activation for a 20 second recording (during sleep), or Time-Lapse recording. Parking Mode is extremely valuable for protecting the parked vehicle against collision, hit and run or vandalism. The Smart Hardwire kit and Suction Cup Mount really should be included with the dashcam, and the ability to manually switch the unit to Parking Monitor Mode when using the cigarette lighter cord should be supported by the firmware, as well. Anyone intending to move the Rexing V3 Plus among multiple vehicles will find the Suction Cup Mount to be valuable.

    Firmware updates require downloading a zip file to a computer, and copying the extracted .bin file to a Micro SD card which is then installed in the camera. Powering on the camera will install the update. The SD Card must be reformatted both before and after being used for a firmware update. Thus if using the SD Card that contains videos, they need to be transferred off the SD Card first, lest they be erased during the reformat. Rexing recommends updating firmware only if there are operational problems with the current version.

    Physical installation of the Rexing V3 Plus dashcam was quick and easy when using the Suction Cup Mount that was purchased as an accessory. The Suction Cup Mount facilitates easily moving the dashcam among multiple vehicles, and also facilitates easily moving the camera’s position to choose the best mounting location on the windshield. Using the adhesive mountings would not readily facilitate repositioning the dashcam for the optimal mounting location.

    Configuration of the Rexing V3 Plus dashcam is simple and straightforward. The menus are clear and logical, and afford great flexibility in the setup configuration.

    Operation of the Rexing V3 Plus dashcam in the vehicle is generally simple, as well. The dashcam boots up when vehicle power is supplied, and using any of the buttons for shortcut operations is fine once you become familiar with those functions and so long as the dashcam is mounted within easy and safe reach of the driver.

    The video quality produced by the Rexing V3 Plus is excellent. I experimented with various recording settings and compared the videos. When operating in dual-camera mode, the highest quality available is 1080p at 30 FPS, which I found to be very good. However, when operating in front (single) camera mode, the higher quality 1080p at 60 FPS video was smoother. Even better was the video at 2160p and 24 FPS. The legibility of license plates of vehicles in front of your vehicle is a helpful determinant.

    Rexing Support is via email contact only during the current Covid-19 pandemic (phone support is suspended). I had occasion to contact support twice regarding unrelated matters. The first inquiry received a response with misinformation. The second inquiry never received any response or acknowledgement at all. These two disappointing experiences with Rexing Support were surprising and do not inspire confidence.

    Overall, I find the Rexing V3 Plus to be an excellent dashcam, with a good set of features and solid performance. The most important attributes for any dashcam are good, clear, high-quality video coupled with reliable performance and ease of use. The Rexing V3 Plus certainly meets all expectations, and the critically important video quality was impressive. I’m certainly pleased to have the Rexing V3 Plus mounted on my windshield!

    Fantastic video quality

    This is my first dash cam, so I really didn’t know what to expect going in to this product but I have to say that so far, I’m quite pleased. Out of the box, this is a relatively unassuming package. No fancy display, fonts, or packaging, just the equipment to get everything up and running.

    I would say the first, and only real hurdle with the product is the actual installation process. Seeing as every car is different, and can have different headaches, it’s certainly not a bad idea to pony up a small amount to have this professionally installed. The included instructions do a pretty poor job of walking you through what you needed to know and I had to figure quite a bit out on my own. The process from start to finish probably took just about an hour and was frustrating since you don’t want to mess up.

    Basically you plug in the camera to the cigarette adapter in your car for power. The power cord is very long so you loop it around the internal seal of your car, and use the provided tool to jam the wire into the seal so it largely becomes invisible to the naked eye. The other hassle is just ensuring you’re mounting the camera properly. My initial mount wasn’t positioned properly so having to remount was a bit of a headache. You can’t really test how this will actually all look until you mount the camera, test it, then go review the footage, which is understandable but frustrating.

    As for the camera itself, which is really why we’re here, it’s really incredible. The setup was simple and the video quality was absurdly great.

    The camera has both a forward facing camera, set up almost as a fish eye lens to catch what’s happening all around. It also has an inwards facing cam, which in my opinion is largely unimportant unless you were a taxi or Uber driver and wanted your passengers to be recorded.

    The camera automatically turns on when the car is on and off when the power is off, so you’ll mostly set it and forget it. The camera is small so over time I’ve noticed it less and less. Once something we’re to happen, like an accident, you would remove the memory device from the camera and hook it to your computer, or just hook the camera to the computer, either with provided equipment. Once in your computer you can view and edit your saved videos. The amount and length of what is saved to the memory card is variable depending on how high you set the video quality. The camera can also capture interior sound, which isn’t largely important unless you’re running carpool karaoke.

    Their is an accompanying app that is supposed to allow you to stream and save videos from your phone. Unfortunately through my experiences and those others in the App Store, the app seemingly doesn’t work at all.

    Overall, while installation is a pain, alongside the poor app, this is truly a good camera based upon video quality alone. Not to mention ease of use, a small size, and the ability to record sound, this is a recommended buy.

    EXCELLENT 2 CHANNEL DASHCAM

    The Rexing V3 Plus dashcam demonstrates good quality and performance. High quality dashcam video can be of extraordinary importance by documenting precisely what occurred in a traffic accident or incident, and the video quality of the Rexing V3 is excellent.

    The Rexing V3 Plus comes with a 12’ power cord with cigarette lighter plug, two adhesive windshield mounting brackets, six adhesive cable clips for the power cord, a USB cable for downloading videos to a computer and a plastic trim prying tool to facilitate concealing the power cable. The V3 Plus does not contain a rechargeable battery. Instead, it has a super-capacitor which is touted as being less sensitive to extreme temperatures.

    The Rexing V3 does not come with the required Micro SD card, nor does it come with a suction cup windshield mount or the hardwired installation kit which is required in order to use the Parked Vehicle functions of the dashcam. It would have been very nice for those essential components to be included with the dashcam in order for it to be immediately usable and capable of supporting all of the important functionality. The V3 requires a UHS1 Class 10 Micro SD card up to 256 GB capacity. Rexing warns not to use a San Disk ULTRA SD card.

    The Rexing V3 has two cameras and is capable of two channel, dual camera recording at a maximum resolution of 1080p at 30 FPS. If only the front camera is recorded, higher resolutions are available including 2160p/24 FPS, 1440p/30 FPS or 1080p/ 60 FPS. Generally, a higher frame rate will produce smoother videos. The video recording format is H 264 (.mp4 files).

    The front facing camera is adjustable for elevation with a knob on the left side of the housing, and the rear facing, cabin camera is also adjustable. The front camera sensor is a Sony Starvis and the cabin camera sensor is either a Sony IMX323 Exmor according to the Rexing website, or a Sony OV2053 according to the PDF Manual, or a second Starvis according to a Rexing marketing video. Both are f 1.8 aperture and have a 170° field of view, or the rear facing camera might have a 150° field of view according to Rexing web marketing material. The CPU is a Novatek 96660. The cabin camera has four IR emitters for night recording. The Rexing V3 also has a switchable cabin microphone .

    Very good quality camera. Nice addition to any car

    This is my second time owning a dashcam and I must say they have come a long way since my first. Rexing put together a very nice camera with some great features. Although I don’t use all of the features, I did put them to the test. The packaging was great, very protective for the unit. The camera itself was very easy to install and get up and running. The one con I found and the reason I docked a star was due to the mount. It is a stick-on 3M adhesive angle mount that gives 0 flexibility to move around on your windshield once placed. I think it would have been near perfect had it been some sort of suction cup ball mount that gave you more flexibility as far as angles and such. Don’t get me wrong this can probably be done but to have to go and purchase one else where is less convenient. That really is my only dislike about this unit.

    The unit takes excellent video. Although I don’t use the interior camera, I did test it out and I was very happy to see that on the camera card itself the front facing camera and cabin facing camera recorded video in 2 separate files. So, the cabin camera has a file and the road camera has its own file. The quality was strikingly superb on both. I opted to use the highest resolution 2160p 24fps the majority of the time, however I may end up using the 1440p resolution to get the 30fps. 60fps is only available in the 1080p mode. The cabin camera has a max resolution of 1080p 30fps which is perfect. The menu settings are very easy to maneuver even with the camera mounted. I found it very simple to go in and change the resolution and adjust the settings.

    I also purchased the Rexing smart hardwire kit for the camera which was very easy to install and further expanded the functionality of the camera. Another con I noticed was to remove the memory card you have to remove the camera. At least this is the case where I mounted it. It would have made more sense to locate the memory card slot on the side or bottom of the unit to avoid having to remove it. I highly suggest the hardwire kit as it gives you the ability to record while parked and your engine is off. It’s also more convenient as it does not take up a lighter charge port in your car. I also noticed the built in GPS on the unit is very accurate!

    I highly recommend this camera to anyone who is looking to purchase a dash cam. It has great video and sound quality and tons of useful features!

    Would not Recommend

    Well the first time I plugged it in and turned it on it froze on the intro screen. I thought I would have to return it. After a few minutes it came on, but it has continued to do this. Right now it is frozen on the intro screen. I have reset it many times and checked everything and it will not go past the white screen that says Rexing Dash Cam V3. I have only had it about a month. The app also doesn't work well. It will not share directly to Facebook. You have to share to their site and from there to Facebook and it's only a link that doesn't work 98% of the time. App keeps saying Network Timeout or failed to load. You have to go back and reconnect the wifi to the unit and start over. Switch back to wifi or data for internet and try again. This unit is too expensive to be going through this. I am bringing back to Geek Squad since it us still under warranty and I bought extended warranty as well. I wouldn't recommend at this point. Also the windshield mount is not adjustable. Unless your windshield is the perfect angle the unit will face the ceiling. You can adjust the cameras to work like this but the LCD screen will not face you. They should include the suction cup mount that is adjustable which I had to order extra from Amazon.

    Great dash cam, easy setup and works well

    Verdict: The Rexing V3 Dash cam is a great device that was easy to install and works as advertised.

    Initial impressions. The camera looks well-designed, with adjustable angles on both the front and rear cameras. The package includes the dash cam, a 32GB Micro SD card (thank you for that!), a very long power cord, a “cable management” tool (essentially a tool to wedge the power cord under the trim of the car), two mounts, two 3M stickers for the mounts, a transfer cable, some sticky clips, and a useful quick-start guide. There is an app available that helps manage the camera; when I downloaded it, it was rated terribly (1 star). I expected to have trouble setting up the camera, formatting the SD card, and using the app, based what I had read on the app reviews.

    Setup. The quick-start guide does a good job guiding each step of the setup. I plugged-in the dash cam and it started up right away. I inserted the included SD card and it started working right away, not need to format… nice! Then, I assessed the best location to mount the camera, ensuring that the view of the front camera was unobstructed; doing this is much easier if the camera is on so that you can see what is on the screen. I peeled the 3M sticker and placed it on the mount, then stuck it to the windshield. So far, so good! I used the cable management tool to tuck the cable away under the trim all the way around the windshield, down the side of the door, under the glove box, and then to the power source. I thought this would be harder, but the trim of the car will easily accommodate a cable. Lastly, I downloaded the app, installed it, and connected it to the dash cam through wifi. My dash cam looks professionally installed, and it works great!

    App. The app works perfectly! I am not sure why it is rated so low; perhaps it wasn’t good before and Rexing fixed it. My experience is that it works well, and it is actually pretty useful to quickly update settings, view your recordings, and download videos. I recommend downloading it.

    Usage. The dash cam works well. As soon as the ignition turns on, the dash cam lights up and starts recording. Nothing else to do! I have it set on 2 min loops (options are 1 min, 2 min, and 3 min). The camera stores several loops until the memory card is full, then it begins to overwrite the older files. It also has a g-force sensor that will lock a video file when an accident is detected. However, I am confused about the g-force setting… Does “low” mean low sensitivity (it takes a lot of force to trigger it), or does it mean low threshold (it will trigger with little force)? The camera also has a GPS tracker; the GPS status is displayed on the screen.

    Things I like:

    - It just works! No need to turn it on, and no need to think about it.

    - The buttons are easy to use

    - The cameras have adjustable angles

    - Setup up was easier than expected, including hiding the power cord under the trim

    - The app works well and it is useful to control the dash cam

    - Dual camera, with a nice implementation when viewing recorded videos

    Things I don’t like:

    - The 3M sticker is grey… why? The mount and camera are black, so the grey sticker sticks out when looking from the outside of the car (see picture). A black sticker would have blended better with the package, and would not be as visible from outside the car

    - A manual that explains the settings of the camera would be useful. The g-force setting is not clear, for example

    - Including two mounts is a nice touch, but if the power cord is installed in the trim, then the dash cam can’t easily be used in another car. Perhaps the package should include a second power cord?

    Overall, this dash cam is great. It was easy to setup. It comes with everything you need, including an SD card that is already formatted. And it has a useful app. I don’t know about the longevity of this camera… time will tell. However, based on my experience thus far, this dash cam appears to be a great option.

    Record Your Way Down the Road

    The Rexing V3+ Front and Cabin Dash Cam is a comprehensive camera that is fairly easy to use and works pretty much out of the box. Its features are many. To start with it has a field of view that is almost 180 degrees, a G-sensor which detects an accident and locks the current video automatically, and a built-in wi-fi that is app controlled for videoing or still photography. Weighing just under 1 lb., it is 3.4 inches in height, 5.5 inches wide, and 7.2 inches deep. The Dashcam has a 1-year warranty.

    The operating system is compatible with Mac OS and windows and the app can be downloaded from either the Apple or Google app stores. The unit is easy to install and installs in minutes. Surprisingly, there are many small crevices in most cars that makes it easy to completely hide all of the cord. The kit comes with all that is needed to install and start using the camera. If the cord remains plugged into a power outlet or cigarette lighter, the camera will turn on when the automobile’s battery is engaged, and the vehicle is started. A supercapacitor battery is internal to the camera and this temperature resistant alternative to a lithium ion battery adds even more reliability to the product’s features. The camera can record to itself in a loop which the user can determine between the choices of 1, 3 or 5 minutes and it can record to an external disk if the disk is a Micro SD, Micro SDHC or Micro SDXC, class 10 or higher, with a capacity of up to 256GB.

    And that is not all this little Dashcam can do! The camera has a recording resolution of 2880 x 2160 with a frame rate of 30 frames per second. It can capture Full HD 1920 x 1080 video at 30 fps with both lenses and allow Ultra HD Single-Channel Recording of 2880 x 2160. Two other great usable features that it has is the GPS Enabled logger which allows for adding time, date, location marks and speed information to all recordings without needing any separate accessory. and the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) which provides real time lane departure warnings. The camera also has infrared night vision which ensures low-light photography and clear, visible nighttime videos and photographs. With the wide Dynamic Range feature, the camera performs optimally in any lighting situation by adjusting the exposure to create balanced images and footage.

    I was able to install the cord in my vehicle to be completely concealed and mount the camera in minutes. I tried too hard to format the card and connect the camera to the wi-fi from the camera settings. All of this becomes seamless when the camera was running, and the app connected. Prior to discovering this ‘easy connect’, I did turn the camera on and off several times, each time removing the card and trying to format it with no luck until, the app allowed for this to be easily done. When the app allowed for easy connection of the camera, everything else fell into place. The card formatted, the Wi-Fi allowed viewing of any photo and/or video and I was then able to take videos and photos with the camera using the app. The videos and photos can be transferred to a computer by either using the micro card or by using the provided USB and directly connecting your camera to the computer.

    This is a very nice Dashcam and it offers extras with the GPS, Wi-Fi, and Lane Assist that makes it awesome. I was not versed on Dash Cameras enough to know these things could co-exist and work in conjunction with the Dashcam. These are very important and useful features and they certainly make this Dashcam a winner among its competitors. I really like the camera and am still finding different adjustments and applications so that I can make great videos – day and night.

    Beware Buyers that are living in hot environments

    Hello I’m writing to all buys to beware of this camera if you live in hot environments especially in the summer. The screen will peel off the camera and debris cause damage to the screen and night vision. Please look at the photos for details. I thought this was a defective product and had gotten it replaced under the warranty. Received new unit just to have the same thing happen. I think they don’t put quality adhesive on the screen which allows it to be detached from the screen when heat is applied to it from the sun. I’m saying like 85 degrees Fahrenheit. THIS IS NOT A ONE PRODUCT DEFECT! Oh and customer service is only through email and make it a pain to get replacements.

    One annoying flaw.

    Just installed this, and it seems decent. It does have an annoying flaw, the unit obviously cannot work without it being plugged in. And the way the plug is designed, it’s upside down. Over time I can see this becoming a problem, heck it just looks awful, in my opinion. (See picture for details)

    Compact and Good Deal

    Installation is straight forward. 2-3 seconds after car start, it ready for use. Default with 720p recording, but I changed to 1080p. It look better the recording. 8GB should ok with 3 minutes loop recording. With this time situation on the road, dash-cam is required.

    Good dash cam

    Works great for me

    Just have the setting in 3 min loops and videos do eliminate themselves

    Good long cable, just has to put black tape over the red light because it is a bit strong while driving at night

    Camera

    Seems to work ok. Hopefully I won’t have to use it. I have had a couple of cameras I don’t know why the always put these cables on the wrong side so they’re bent in the wrong positions to connect. The screen is also small wish it was a little bigger

    A must if you have the Rexing dash cam

    This allows you to attach the dash cam to the car window via suction cup, vs. permanent adhesive which is included with the dash cam. Highly recommend. Works perfect.

    Nice Dual DashCam Set with some challenges

    The Cobra SC400 D is a very nice dashcam set for front and rear dashcams and will work extremely well in sedans. This review will be done in 4 parts – features, installation, usage impressions, and Pros/Cons.

    Features:

    The Cobra SC200D Dash Cam is the top of the SC line of Cobra SC Dash Cameras and as such is an extremely well-featured kit. Chief among the features is that this kit comes with both a Front and Rear camera included. The system is capable of multiple resolutions, all at 30 FPS, including 2560x1600 (when using the front camera only), 1920x1080 (default for Dual Camera use), and 1280x720. The system also includes emergency mayday alert, cloud video management, and real-time driver alerts (allows notifications from the driver community – touted as over 100 million shared alerts each year including red light and speed camera locations, sopped zones. Road conditions, and other “relevant notifications to make you a smarter driver”) as additional key features. Also included is hands-free voice control, a 3” LCD Screen, the Drive Smarter App, an included 16 GB SD Card (the system can support up to a 256 GB card). The feature set is rounded out with the following features:

    - Safety and Security – Parking Mode and Motion Sensing Mode.

    - Advanced Driver Assistance – Lane departure and forward-collision warnings.

    - Extreme Temperature protection – the camera capacitor technology allows this camera set to withstand both frigid cold and intense heat.

    - Dual-Band Wi-Fi to allow the most reliable connection to enable software updates, cloud management, and alerts.

    The Drive Smarter® app loaded to your phone is this camera’s gateway to real-time driver alerts, advanced safety, and security features, and to the community. The application is available in the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. The app used about 70 MB of space for its installation.

    Installation

    Installation of this system is straightforward, as such the installation guidance provide don this quick start card is limited. The full manual is available as a download and provides more complete guidance. The included power cable is oriented for use with the vehicle’s power port (aka the cigarette lighter). A hardwire kit is available from the vendor as an optional accessory ($30). This option allows for a more permanent and discrete installation and can also allow for recording while the vehicle is powered off.

    One thing to remember for this kit is that the rear camera is connected to the front camera via an included extension cable and as such it must be run from the front of the vehicle to the rear of the vehicle. This wired connection makes this kit most suitable for sedan style vehicles without a rear lifting door. While it could be used with the lifting door vehicles, you would have to find a way to get the cable to the window on the door and still be able to be connected. One item that would have been a nice addition here is to include a tool to help one tuck the cable into vehicle panels to help hide the cables.

    Both cameras in this kit have an adhesive mount option as the sole mounting options – a suction cup option would have been a nice addition. Unfortunately, the kit includes one set of spare adhesive stirps in case one needs to move the camera to another vehicle or needs to remount the unit.

    Usage Impressions

    The cameras are nice and record great video. And when using both cameras the display defaults to a Picture-in-Picture (PIP) viewing mode. You can see this view at this link: https://youtu.be/RNEPjWvePSg, each of the images has basic telemetry data including Date, time, longitude, latitude, and speed included on the video.

    The Drive smarter™ software is nice and offers a lot of features (see accompanying images). I was however not able to get my Android phone to connect in a live view mode. I looked online for assistance the instructions they provided prevent me from getting to the camera at all – so that was not a good experience.

    Overall, despite some of the issues noted above, I would give this camera set a 4/5 rating. This rating would drop to a 3 if the Android issues cannot be overcome with more time. It would also be nice to see Cobra offer this same camera with the interior cabin facing camera as a kit.

    Pros: Features, rear camera inclusion, Motion-sensing features.

    Cons: Only works with specific vehicles, Android issues with Drive Smarter™ software, lack of a suction cup mounting option being included.

    Easy setup Front/Rear dashcam!

    Nice compact dashcam that has A LOT of features. It only took me about 45 mins to install it myself in a Toyota Tundra including tucking the power and rear camera cables away under the ceiling edge for a clean installation. It’s small enough too that it’s hidden from my view while driving – mounted it right behind my rear view mirror (see pics).

    Pretty much ready to go out of the box and starts recording immediately. If you don’t want to use the app, you don’t need to. Plug it in and go. It starts recording automatically and then if you want the videos, just pop out the Micro SD card and connect to a computer to download. Video looks very good – even at night.

    If you do use the app, there are lots of other features. You can set everything up from either the front camera or in the app (emergency call numbers, how long you want the looping recording to be set for, video quality/resolution, you can see the recent recordings right in the app etc.)

    I really like that you can just talk it and operate some useful features all hands free. You can tell it to “Lock video” to have it save the currently recording file permanently - like if you see an accident. At night I usually say “Screen Off” and it turns off the display screen so it’s not bright in the car. Ever see something crazy stopped at a light or while driving? Just say “Take Photo” and it snaps a photo – so easy!

    It also can even lock the video file automatically if it senses you are in an accident by its g-shock sensor. It can even call an emergency # automatically if you’re in an accident.

    Only minor issue I had was updating the firmware. It establishes a WiFi mini network connection to the camera so it was a bit tricky to connect to the camera WiFi, disconnect that WiFi to reconnect to the internet, then reconnect to the camera WiFi to upload the firmware update, but that might have been because I was in my garage during the install and also on my home WiFi on my phone, otherwise it probably would have downloaded the update via cellular data and not been an issue.

    Overall, very impressive for the price.

    Nice cameras, but poor software.

    I was excited to get the Cobra SC 200D Dual-View Smart Dash Cam for my car since I do a lot of delivery driving. The installation into my Subaru Outback was easy, and I appreciate that the cables were long enough. I installed the front camera below and left of the rear-view mirror and the rear camera at the top of the rear hatchback window. I downloaded and installed the Drive Smarter app and the iRadar app onto my iPhone and iPad. The app automatically downloaded and updated the firmware of the camera. The camera connects with Bluetooth, and it also acts as a Wifi host for live-streaming the camera to the phone. The installation guide was easy to follow.

    I highly recommend downloading the manual from the Cobra.com web site and then read through it before using the device. My first day of driving was frustrating since I didn't fully understand the operation of the camera. Reading through the manual was very helpful.

    The quality of the videos and pictures are excellent. It is easy to access the files on the camera by plugging it into a computer via the included USB cable. The files are stored in clearly labeled folders for Front, Rear, Events, and Favorites. The camera will automatically overwrite the oldest files with the most recent recordings. When the Favorites button is pressed on the camera, it will lock the file to prevent overwriting. If an impact or hard braking is detected, the recording will be saved in the Events folder. I can get around one day of driving recorded on the included 16 GB SD card. The camera will support up to 256GB SD cards.

    While I love the cameras and the high-resolution recordings, I was very frustrated with the Drive Smarter app on my iPhone. It works well for displaying the camera images while driving, along with a map, and the integration with the iRadar app provides community-driven alerts for road conditions, speed zones, accidents, and traffic conditions. However, my frustration was in trying to configure the settings for the camera. Settings for Time, Loop Time, Screen Saver, Speed Units, and Display Settings would only stay on the camera until it was powered off. During my deliveries, I get out of my car around 30-50 times per day, which powers off the camera and loses the settings.

    When I installed the Drive Smarter app, I could not register on my iPhone since the button for submitting my information did not fit onto the screen. I had to register on my iPad with the larger screen. I did manage to get in touch with Technical Support via phone after waiting on hold for over an hour. They currently do not handle email or online chat for support. They noted my concerns and issues and provided me with an email address for sending in my problems. Tech support did recommend that I set the settings on the camera itself by using the buttons on the device's bottom. I did this, and the settings did save.

    Pros

    • Up to 1600P HD front camera (2560 x 1440 @30 fps)

    • Up to 1080P HD rear camera (1920 x 1080 @30 fps)

    • Hands-free voice control

    • 16 GB SD card memory storage

    • Embedded GPS

    • Motion sensing collision detection (G-Sensor)

    • Continuous loop recording of 1-3 minutes

    • Records video, sound, speed, and GPS location

    • Drive Smarter app integrates with the iRadar app

    • USB connection cable for viewing files via computer

    • Long enough cables for car installation

    • Clear 3" LCD display

    • Shows front and rear views on the display

    • Parking Mode with Motion Sensor (Requires power if car is off.)

    • Lane Departure, Forward Collision Warning, Speed Alert

    Cons

    • Drive Smarter app does not keep new camera settings

    • Tech support is hard to get ahold of.

    • The iOS apps only work in portrait mode on the iPad.

    • The web-based viewer does not show the images.

    Summary

    I love the quality of the videos from the dash camera and the rear-facing camera. When the camera is plugged into my computer, it is easy to review the videos and images. However, the software application for the iPhone and the web-based interface is sorely lacking. Technical support did say this was a newly released product, and they would review my list of issues. While I'm sure that Cobra will eventually fix the software issues, I don't like being the beta tester for a released product. Unfortunately, I can't recommend this unfinished product.

    Feature packed!

    The Cobra SC 200D comes packed with a lot of features for the price. It has a 1600p QHD front camera and a 1080p rear. Both cameras provide great video quality, with the front obviously being the better of the two. The rear has a built in swivel mount, making it easy to attach to the rear window with the included adhesive tape. Included is a 16GB micro SD card which will fill up fast if using the highest quality video settings. It’s better than not having one, but I’d recommend grabbing a higher capacity one. It supports up to a 256GB card, personally I’d go 128GB (since they’re so cheap now) but at the minimum a 64GB. The unit offers parking mode like others dash cams, but also motion detection. The unit needs to be hard wired or your vehicle needs to have outlets that stay powered when the ignition is off to use these two features though. It also offers speed alerts, forward collision warning and lane departure warning. Also with the iRadar app, it can alert you to red light cameras, speed cameras, user reported radar and more, through voice announcement. The unit also offers voice commands, this allows you capture a photo or a locked video of an incident while driving. The MayDay feature will auto upload your location and a notice to the emergency contact you create in the event of a severe impact/collision.

    Setting the unit up was easy, connecting it to the app wasn’t bad either. The app itself is good, and has the potential to be great. The app gives you the ability to change and do a lot of stuff in the app instead of on the dash cam. But, there in lies part of the problem, doing stuff on the app and it actually changing on the dash cam is two different things! I would change numerous settings for the dash cam in the app, only to discover nothing changed. After numerous tries I even reset the dash cam, as i thought maybe it was because of the update I did on it. The issues with the app should easily be resolved with an update to the app, dash cam or both. Overall, it’s an excellent dash cam that offers a lot of features to keep you protected on the road.

    Decent Camera but not so Great Execution

    The Cobra SC 200D is a decent dual dash cam for the price. Many dash cams go around this price for only the front cam. I wanted to like this dash cam, but the setup and a couple of other significant problems made this product a bit of a frustration to set up and use.

    =====================================

    THE SETUP PROCESS:

    This was probably one of the most tedious tasks I had to do while using this product. Cobra did not make this too easy. The camera is mounted to your windshield with a 3M adhesive. Unfortunately, this may be a problem down the road if you live in extreme weather as this adhesive may wear off quickly. If you need to move the dashcam from vehicle to vehicle, this is not the dashcam you want as this is more of a setup and leave it type of deal. I needed to move this dashcam to a different vehicle, and I had to forcefully pull the camera from my windshield. This ruined the adhesive and I had to use the extra one provided. You only get two for each camera

    The rear camera is wired so I had to take the wire all through my SUV and find a place on the rear windshield. The rear camera could have been a wireless camera that needs charging occasionally. I think this could have suited this product better. I also had a find a way to manage the long power cable which was another hassle.

    =====================================

    DASHCAM USAGE/QUALITY:

    The dashcams work extremely well but the buttons under the front cam made this dashcam more of a burden to use. I would’ve preferred a touch screen and some instructions on how to use some of the camera’s features. I had to play around with the buttons for a bit to figure out the way around it and the various adjustable settings.

    The SD card that comes in the box is a 16GB card. Two hours with both cameras recording was around 14.5GB. This depends on the video quality, I had mine in QHD. I would recommend buying a bigger SD Card or lowering the video quality in the settings. The plus side to this camera was the video resolution. I can assure you will be able to see every license plate and street sign with this camera. The quality is seriously crystal clear. I attached some pictures of my drive for reference.

    =====================================

    DRIVE SMARTER APP:

    Please note I tested the app on an Android device running Android Pie so the app may work differently for IOS devices or devices running a different version of Android. Upon seeing that this camera was compatible with an app, I was excited to try it out the extra features. I was merely disappointed; the app was simply too much of a hassle where I had to delete it.

    The app is new and hopefully will have future

    updates that will fix the many bugs but as of now, the app is too poorly made I successfully got the camera connected the first time. And when I wanted to update the firmware, all I received was a failure to connect the camera message. I then went back to the live view and the whole app bugged out where I could not view the live view of the camera anymore. I also was never able to view my location on the map in the live view.

    Prepare to have all your battery drained as to connect the camera to the app, I had to have my Wi-Fi, Location, and Bluetooth turned on simultaneously. My battery life was significantly shortened because of this. If you are going to use both, I would recommend having your phone plugged into some external power source. The app is just terrible, I had to delete it and use the camera by itself.

    =====================================

    CONCLUSION:

    If you are looking for a dual camera that records great video. This camera could be a possibility for you if you are okay with the setup and having a buggy app that drains your battery. I wanted to like this dual camera, but the hassle of the setup, usage, and app made this camera hard to enjoy. While I did enjoy the excellent quality video, I cannot recommend this product unless you want a dual view dashcam that records video and nothing else.

    Hard pass

    When you buy a piece of premium technology, you expect it to make your life easy. Unfortunately, this is not one of them. It's not the first time I have used dashcam in my car but this made me so frustrated I am left wondering it it was even worth it. First the positives:

    - Decent packing with no fluff

    - The 2 set of cables/adapter for front/back cam are good quality and sufficiently long even for use in a minivan

    - 2x extra adhesive pads if you goof up the first time

    - Cameras have fair to decent build quality

    - Magnetic mount makes it easy to install/remove front camera

    Now the laundry list of negatives:

    - Poor display: Display quality is extremely poor and starts hurting eyes after just a few mins of use. LED lights are too intense and there is no diffuser over them. Really painful to look towards them. Thankfully, most of the time after config, they will be hidden.

    - No brightness control for the screen

    - Clunky navigation/menus, etc: The way you move around to configure settings is clunky. Bottom buttons to move around the menu are hard to press. Font doesn't look aliased.

    - Display doesn't turn off while driving: I expect my dashcam's screen to turn off after sometime to save power and generate less heat. Unfortunately, it didn't work for this camera even though the manual says it's possible. Parking mode and motion Detection were enabled that might be the reason why but regardless, I expect this basic feature to work in even most basic dash cam. I hoped firmware update would resolve it but I wasn't able to update it (details below).

    - Included 16GB microSD card seems to be a joke: Just the front cam at highest setting uses about 300MB per minute. Which means you will be able to record around 50 mins before the camera would start rewriting old videos. With both cams enabled, it would be even less. Expect to buy atleast a 64GB to keep any worthwhile recordings for emergency.

    - Extremely poor app: Connecting the camera to the Drive Smarter app was a pain. You have to first register. The main reason I did that was to see if there are any firmware updates available. Unfortunately, the manual doesn't specify any manual way of updating firmware using microSD card. In any case, even after about 30 mins of trying, firmware update didn't happen because app wasn't able to connect to dashcam's WiFi hotspot (screenshot attached).

    - And here's the cherry on the cake directly from app's privacy policy: We use Personal Information collected from you to manage your user account. In addition, we may share the information we collect on the web site with third parties, who may use the information for their own marketing purposes.

    I think this is simply unacceptable. Even after buying a premium product, you realize that your information is being sold to third parties! To be fair, I compared their privacy policy with some other premium dash cam manufacturers and didn't find such a clause there.

    Overall, I am disappointed and won't recommend anyone to buy this half baked gadget.

    Huge pairing issues with iPhone

    I was unable to complete pairing to my iPhone (and a second iPhone after no luck with the first) after 45 min of wasted time trying. There are two pairing steps: the first one was no problem, and was never able to get past the second step. I suspect the app has significant issues with newer versions of iOS. Regardless, this is going back to BestBuy. I don’t recommend getting this cam if you use an iPhone - or wait until Gatlin improves its app.

    Fun size

    Amazing little dash cam. Video and sound is clear and app interface works seamless. Voice command is such a useful feature. Wired this behind my auto dimming mirror using a Dongar Technologies plug in 10-pin cable and it came out OEM level clean install with no long wires running all the way to my cigarette lighter socket. Highly recommended!

    Great buy!

    These dash cam is a great budget model camera. Easy to install and comes with a nice long cable. The video quality is fantastic. My only complaint is when extracting video from the camera doing it via connecting the phone to the camera (Wi-Fi) is very slow. If you remove the micro SD card and extract from that the video is broken into 1 minute segments of your entire drive and it can be tedious to find the portion you need, and then piece it together.

    Bad experience

    This is the best dashcam for you if you love bluetooth connectivity issues and annoying non-stop beeps. If you're in the market for a cam that keeps rebooting and prompting you to keep formatting your memory card, look no further. On the plus side, the picture quality on the pix I took was nice thru the glare reduction lense that's sold separately, although I couldn't enjoy them with the connectivity issues. Needless to say that I returned it.

    nice once paired

    not the most intuitive pairing experience.

    the device responds differently when plugged into a "computer" vs. a "power source." The former will facilitate file transfer; latter enables pairing.

    we had trouble initially as we had plugged it into a built-in usb port in the car, but paired with no issues as soon as we switched to a 'dumb' power outlet.

    device itself works beautifully.

    Best little dash cam ever

    Works great! I wanted another set of eyes with me recording in case I get into an accident or something. I'm not a rideshare driver so I didn't need a screen nor did I need to really show anyone I have a dash cam so my goal was to find the smallest one I can find and this one is perfect. It's a great camera and I highly suggest you buy a cable that allows you to plug into the powered mirror. Otherwise you will have a long cable sticking out.

    Great purchase!

    Great first camera!

    When I was beginning my search for a dash camera, I was worried I'd have an eye sore until I found this camera.

    Super discreet. I don't mind the beeping. To me, it helps assure me that the camera is working before I start driving somewhere. The voice controls are super convenient and I have already used them a couple times! I was so impressed with the first one, I got two more for my commuter and my wife's vehicle. I love the assurance I get knowing I have something to help prove my case in the event something bad happens while driving.

    Overall, I highly recommend it!

    Nextbase 622GW 4K Dash Cam - Silver
    Description

    The best just got better with the new Nextbase 622GW 4K Dash Cam. With an abundance of new features and world’s firsts, the 622GW is the most accurate, powerful and highest image quality Dash Cam in the market today. Ultra-clear 4K recording at 30fps captures those all-important finer details, with recording at 1440p HD at 60fps or 1080p HD at 120fps for super slow motion available. An improved sensor ensures enhanced night vision on even the darkest roads. Image quality is at the forefront of the Dash cam revolution, with Image stabilization reducing vibrations from your vehicle and improving footage clarity. Another first for Nextbase is Extreme Weather Mode, to provide a clearer image in misty conditions using special defogging algorithms, crucial for winter and night-time driving. The 622GW is the world’s first Dash Cam to include what3words. This provides your exact location to a 3m square location without the need for a data connection, crucial for emergency services to precisely locate you. Coupled with Emergency SOS and Alexa Built-In, the 622GW shows its further ahead the field with technology advancements. Increased connectivity for transferring footage to your mobile phone is key with new built-in Bluetooth 5.0 and Hyper-Sync Wi-Fi 5GHz speeds are up to 10x faster. This ensures syncing times with the MyNextbase Connect app (IoS 12.1 or later and Android 5.1 and up). The 622GW is compatible with any Nextbase Rear View Module, to offer-all around protection, whilst crucially maintaining front 4K image quality, with 1080p full HD rear recordings. The 622GW features all the much loved Nextbase features including Intelligent Parking Mode, high accuracy 10x GPS readings, a 3” HD IPS touch screen and the fully patented Click&Go PRO mount design, for the ultimate Dash Cam user experience. Note- For this product a U3 class Nextbase microSD card is required (Not included). The ability to maintain a high WRITE speed consistently is what Nextbase SD cards are designed to do better than any other SD card. Any drop/fluctuation in WRITE speed within the SD card causes the Dash Cam footage to buffer, and in some cases will stop the recording entirely. Our Nextbase SD card controller and Firmware on the SD card achieves the requirements from our Dash Cam, where other SD cards cannot. Due to the continuous recording and overwriting of the card, the SD card needs to be a high-endurance card, otherwise the card may develop faults after a period of time; if a lower-capability card is used, certain features on the camera will not fully function due to being unable to re-write and record. Nextbase has over 3 million dash cams sold, 115 unique patents, custom designed processors and improved sensors which record fast moving objects in perfect picture clarity for day and night time driving. Auto adjusts contrast and brightness to further improve the footage details in the event of an accident. Save time, money, and ease with Nextbase Dash Cams.Questions on upgrading your car?

    Nice 4k dashcam

    Having used and reviewed the Nextbase 422GW dashcam, I figured I’d give this one a try as well. One of the concerns I have was mounting compatibility between dashcams as well as power input/output. After finally receiving the 622GW, I was glad that they are compatible.

    The dashcam came with the same necessities to mount it. The adhesive plate can be swapped and is compatible with other dashcam models. This is great as it allowed me to take the 422GW I used and swap it with the 622GW. The magnetic mount piece is also compatible but I have opted to use the included one to ensure no potential issue with installation and compatibility. Even the cigarette lighter power adapter has the same power output at 5 volt 1.5 amp. While I could easily reused the same magnetic mount and power cable, I have opted not to so I can be assured of no installation problem that may occur. The only piece used from the 422GW is the adhesive plate.

    (NOTE: Nextbase has provided a ()GB microSD card to Tech Insider Network reviewers at no cost. This is to ensure reviewers do not need to rush out and purchase a memory card to use the product. Retail purchase does not include a microSD card so make sure you either have one around or add one to your purchase.)

    The 622GW records at a maximum 4k at 30fps. And while there are other lower resolutions with higher framerate, I have opted to stay at 4k for the highest image detail possible. A higher framerate (ie. 60fps or 120fps) is nice but the benefit is not much better than 30fps in a dashcam. But the option is there if you prefer a higher framerate. Viewing recorded videos shows that 4k brings additional details into the overall picture. However, upon viewing some individual frames from these videos, I can spot some compression artifacts. I have never noticed it before since I do not have anything to view 4k videos natively. Turning the video resolution down to 1440 did not help in that regard so I left it at 4k. The built-in polarising filter helped a bit in reducing sun glare and windshield reflections. This is, to say the least, better than having no filter at all. I believe all dashcams should come with a polarising filter built in.

    There are other features like Emergency SOS, Alexa voice assistant, and geolocation through what3words. While they are there, I did not use them nor did I turn on the feature. For people who use Alexa, they will find this useful. As a user of Google Assistant, I cannot form any opinion on how well it works. For geolocation using what3words or its Emergency SOS feature, I also cannot review these features as I do not believe either will be of much use. Smartphones have evolved to the point where it’s easy to set up an emergency system and info in place should one become incapacitated.

    Connecting the dashcam to the smartphone app is easy, as basic connection is through Bluetooth. However, other functions, such as live preview or viewing/listing recorded videos require connecting to it via WiFi. (WiFi stops recording? double-check) Viewing the list of past recordings turned out to be unstable, as I can list them at first but it would failed to do so again when switching tabs in the app. I do not believe the app added anything to the overall usage and experience to the dashcam. Transferring videos don’t happen often and one can simply eject the SD card or take the entire dashcam and connect directly via USB. While those methods are unconventional, it’s a lot better than using the phone’s WiFi to connect to it.

    Due to personal preference, I have turned off two settings -- “Speed Stamp” and microphone. Turning the microphone off will limit the amount of data written to the video file but also helps on privacy. “Speed Stamp” is a digital stamp that displays your current speed (likely estimated from GPS tracking). I have turned this off as there is an off chance where this information can be used against you, even though a dashcam in general is supposed to be beneficial to you.

    There are a few strange oddities with the dashcam. One of which is partly my fault. For starters, prior to installing the dashcam, I updated the firmware to the latest available (6.4 as of review). What I should have done is use the dashcam with the stock firmware as it arrived. Because of this, I ran into an issue while using it. During my time of using it and driving around with it, the dashcam would lock up. Thus far, in the single week of random driving, several of them are short distance with one long distance, I have noticed the dashcam freezing twice. Both at random times. The first time it happened, there was no way to force it to power down. Only after cutting the engine off and waiting would it finally shut down (but not properly, as it ran out of power to display anything). After the second time, I went into the system settings to reformat the SD card and start anew. While I have yet to run into this problem again, it is worth pointing out as a possible issue.

    Overall, I’m satisfied with the dashcam. The video quality is good enough (aka passable). And other than the aforementioned freezing issues, I’m satisfied with it. The companion app does not add much to the overall usability and experience and is only usable when you need to quickly check any recorded videos. I do wish that the video quality in 4k and 1440p was better. But better image quality will always equate to more data being written to the SD card.

    The Good: 4k 30fps to capture more details, built-in polarising filter, mount/power compatible with other Nextbase dashcams, peace of mind while driving to avoid he-said-she-said disputes

    The Bad: realizing the dashcam locked up/froze after you got home and parked

    The Ugly: seeing compression artifacts at 4k and 1440p

    Verdict: Recommended buying for the peace of mind when driving

    (image notes: These are sample still images taken from the video itself. They were in PNG lossless format and were too large to upload. They were converted to JPEG with the highest quality setting possible to minimize further loss of image quality.)

    GREAT QUALITY HARDWARE – Skip the Windows Software

    REVIEW: NEXTBASE 622GW 4K DASH CAM

    Best Buy Tech Insider Network

    GREAT QUALITY HARDWARE – Skip the Windows Software

    My first dashcam, so I was not sure what to expect. Overall, I am very happy with the unit. The hardware is top notch and very well made and constructed. The images are very sharp and clear (4K). I’ll likely get a second unit for my wife’s car. Do yourself a favor and skip the windows software as it adds no value. Just use your favorite video player or editor and you will be much happier. The images are stored on an SD card in normal “camera” format and folders. The included permanent mount and suction cup mount are a nice touch for flexibility. I also appreciate the wide array of compatible accessories from prior models. It is good to see that you don’t have to toss out all your accessories each time you upgrade. At first, I was surprised by the very old style USB connector (USB Mini-B) but then I came to appreciate that is part of their strategy to keep backwards and forward compatibility.

    I plan to use it to capture fall color driving tours, as well as some of the crazy people on the road. Last year I was driving my son to work and the person ahead of me was putting on their makeup and frequently driving into oncoming traffic lanes. If I had the Nextbase, I could have done something about it. If I tried to fumble around for my cell phone I would have made it worse.

    Overall, I recommend the Nextbase 622GW 4K Dash Cam for just about anyone who wants a little piece of mind while driving. The device itself is very small, a little larger than a business card. I don’t find it obstructing the view or distracting in anyway, especially with the screensaver on.

    FAVORITE FEATURES

    - Sticker that says format SD Card “FORTNIGHTLY”

    - 4K Video (Clear Images)

    - Suction Cup Mount included

    - Super Powerful Magnets to connect to Mounts

    - All included Cables

    - Flexibility to configure what to record (size, volume, speed, location, etc)

    - Compact Size

    - Polarizing Filter to adjust contrast and reflections

    - Little tool to “tuck wires” into headers and dash

    SETUP:

    The so called “quick start guide” is 18 pages long, and frankly is a little out of sequence. With all devices I suggest updating the firmware before doing anything else. The windows software kept telling me that there were no firmware updates available but I knew that was wrong. Perhaps if I used the Android app it would have worked. Instead, I followed the instructions for manually updating the firmware (from the website).

    The steps are roughly as follows.

    1. Install SD Card (make sure it is u3 speed designed for video or webcams)

    2. Put on Charger for 2 hours

    3. Format SD Card

    4. Download Firmware on PC from the website

    5. Connect Camera to PC

    6. Select “Update Firmware” on Camera when it boots up

    7. Browse to Camera Root Folder from Windows

    8. Copy Firmware Files (not the zip files but the files inside) to Root Folder

    9. Disconnect from Computer

    10. Wait for a few reboots while firmware is uploaded (red lights eventually turn white)

    11. Pair Camera W/ Phone

    12. Download App (QR Code does not work) search for software manually

    13. Watch for a flash “press to pair, tiny print” and press it

    14. Pair the phone

    15. Look for BT Icon on dashcam to know you are paired (app seemed to be stuck in a loop)

    16. Reboot Phone

    17. Reboot Camera

    18. Re Launch App

    19. Optional Alexa Setup

    NOW you can continue with step 2 of the quick start and pay close attention to Step 8 to get the contrast correct.

    By doing this all in your house, you are not sitting in your car for hours trying to figure it all out.

    FEATURES AND SETTINGS

    There are a lot of features and I’m sure I’ve not used them all but here I my thoughts on a few.

    IMAGE STABILIZATION – Not worthwhile unless you want to make a movie. It is only digital which means it reduces the resolution from 4K to something less then uses software to try to stabilize. I would rather have the “raw” 4K image, so I turned it off.

    WIFI – This is on the box, but nowhere else in the manuals. It took me forever to figure out what this was or how it was used. All it means it the once the phone app connects to the device over bluetooth, it sets up a virtual “hotspot” between the phone and the dashcam so your video are moved to your phone over WiFi (at a higher speed than Bluetooth supports). This is all automatic you don’t have to do anything or think about it. Many cameras also use this same trick.

    WHAT3WORDS – Allows your location to be communicated by 3 random words like Butter-Box-Flag instead of GPS coordinates. Interesting, you can take it or leave it.

    ALEXA INTEGRATION – In effect all it is doing is allowing the MIC in the dashcam to talk to the Alexa App on your phone. It is not really a standalone Alexa Device. But it works well enough. It is one less distracting thing in that you don’t have to fumble with your phone while driving. We use Alexa to bypass the need for multiple music subscription services for each car.

    SOS – I have not activated this yet as it is only a 1 year subscription. Once I decide whether or not to get a second unit I’ll think about the SOS feature. It is a nice feature, but I’m not sure I want “one more subscription” to worry about.

    OVERALL RECOMMENDATION

    I think it is a great unit, I could go on and on about how horrible the windows software is, but if you just don’t use it, then problem solved or at least avoided.

    [OK I can’t help myself just a little. SLOW, Choppy playback, overrides the correct timestamp on the video files and dashcam – thinks I’m in London, pause does not work, does not import still photo files from dashcam – only video, firmware update does not work, and more] Phew, got that out my system.

    Get this for the top class hardware and image quality, use your own software you will be perfectly happy.

    Great 4K dash cam

    I used lots of dash cameras in last few years and NextBase 622GW is one of the best I tried.

    Packaging:

    ………………..

    Very nice and clean packaging, that included camera itself, two cords (one usb for house, other with 12V car plug), GPS stick on magnetic mount with power connector, suction cup extension mount, warning window sticker, extra sticky pad, cable tucking tool, SD card and instruction guide.

    Setup:

    ………………..

    Initial setup of the camera was easy and first step was to charge camera (this camera has internal battery) per instructions, then getting MyNextBase app and configuring device to my own preference. Initial setup vent fine but my problems started after initial setup and I had few of them:

    1. Unable to install prompted firmware update from 5.9 to 6.4. Download of the new firmware was completed but it always failed to install it. – This was resolved and updated by downloading update file by computer to SD card

    2. Second issue was being unable to get live view once I connect to camera

    3. Unable to download files from camera to the app/phone, and every time when attempted to download files camera would freeze and wouldn’t even power off.

    4. Unable to play recorded videos on MyNextBase app

    In order to resolve problems 2, 3 and 4 I did try a lot, and this is what I did at end to make it work:

    Performed reset the dash cam to all defaults

    Reset the network settings on the phone

    Left camera ON but unplugged to drain dash cam battery

    Waited 24 hours before I continued

    Reset the camera settings again

    Did initial setup again and everything worked fine.

    For issues listed above I will take away 1 star.

    Experience with device:

    ………………..

    I used sticky pad GPS mount simple because I know it won’t fall of in hot days which I cannot guarantee for any suction cup mount. Camera is easy removable from this magnetic GPS mount by simple pull back toward yourself. For the video quality mine was set for 4K at 30fps (it also supports 1440p 30fps, 1080 60fps and 1080 30fps), and I like short clips 1 minute which is my preference but there is option for 2 and 3 minutes clips as well. Camera supports pictures capturing by double tapping the camera touchscreen (yes, this device has really clean touch screen), and video clips could be protected from overwriting by simple pressing of the small “NextBase” button right under the screen. Video & picture quality is clean and beautiful to provide enough details such as road signs, license plates of the cars in front of you etc. This camera has built in polarizing filter which help to reduce or eliminate windshield reflection which also makes big difference when it comes to video quality. Since I am talking about video part I should mention that NextBase 622 has option to save two clips for each file (or each occurrence), one in high resolution and other in low resolution. I decided to disable this feature in order to save up space on SD card. Camera also support image stabilization (if enabled). Audio quality is also great and clean to understand passengers or hear car next to you honking, extreme brakes squeaking or even yelling and lauder talking around your car. If you choose to enable all display options, your recording video could have on screen information for your speed, GPS coordinates, camera model, time and date. NextBase 622 lets you connect to your phone by both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi which makes file accessing (and sending to someone) very pleasant and easy. Camera supports parking mode but I am not using this feature because my 12V power outlet is not working if car is turned off. Emergency SOS is feature that monitors camera sensors (in case of accidents) to determine crash and sends a SOS signal (or message) to emergency services including your location and medical information (to setup up this location in your phone for NextBase app needs to be set on “always”, and you will need to setup feature with your name, phone number and voluntary medical data such as allergies, blood type), and this service it’s free for 12 months. Honestly I am not using this feature. This dash cam also supports Alexa but simple because I have iPhone with Siri I am also not using this feature.

    Conclusion:

    ………………..

    I like this product mostly because of great video & audio quality that is after all my main reason to get a dash camera. I like the camera design, touch screen, great magnetic GPS mount which allows you to remove camera fast and easily, and integrated polarizing filter which is great addition to improve video clarity. Currently my only concern is the fact that this camera gets little bit hot (in December) so I would recommend to use screensaver feature.

    Pros:

    ………………..

    Great audio & video quality

    Touch screen

    Magnetic GPS mount

    Integrated polarizing filter

    Image stabilization

    Design

    Cons:

    ………………..

    Camera gets little bit hot

    Not a Great Upgrade

    I was looking forward to replacing my Nextbase 522GW which has only 1440p with this 622GW because of its 4K resolution. There are some really nice features on the 622GW, but also a couple of setbacks that give me pause.

    PROs

    • The 4K resolution is excellent. It’s most helpful when looking at small details, like a license plate from a car way ahead of you. This by itself makes it worth upgrading to any 4K dash cam if yours doesn’t have it.

    • Enhanced Image Stabilization (EIS). I was not expecting much from the image stabilization but it works really well. Footage is far smoother and less bumpy. But it does a remarkable job keeping license plates and other text sharp. One tradeoff to EIS is max native resolution drops from 3840x2160 (4K) to 2704x1520, though it is then expanded back to 4K. Unless you’re trying to capture every original detail of a scenic drive, I would leave EIS turned on as it makes it easier to read plates in motion.

    • Faster response with the iPhone Nextbase app. The 522GW was lethargic connecting to the app compared to the 622GW

    • Fits seamlessly into the same mount as the 522GW. This meant that I did not have to install new wiring.

    CONs

    • The biggest con is the polarizing filter in the 622GW has a terrible color cast. The polarizer is very useful because you can rotate the filter on the lens to remove reflections from your windshield. But whatever polarizer is used in the 622GW causes a strong red cast, especially when driving into the sun. See attached photos of the 622GW versus 522GW. I’m surprised this made it past quality control.

    • MyNextbase app on my iMac would not update the firmware on the 622GW. When I attach the 522GW, it recognizes it and the dash cam allows me to invoke an update. No such recognition on the 622GW. A further annoyance is that the macOS app is supposed to check for its own updates but never finds one. So I manually downloaded the latest version of the macOS app – and one last aggravation with that is the Nextbase website confusingly has only a Windows logo only for the app, even though when you click through it downloads a dmg file. Regardless, it was all a waste of time since I could not get the player to update the dash cam firmware.

    • I also tried to update the firmware using the Nextbase iOS app on my iPhone 11. Unfortunately it kept saying that installed ver 5.9 was the latest release, even though the website shows a ver 6.4. Ultimately, I had to download the bin files, copy them to the microSD card, and manually update the firmware on the dash cam. When I ran the iOS app again to check for updates, it offered to “update” the ver 6.3 firmware back to the ver 5.9. The good news is after the manual update, the MyNextbase app on the iMac recognized the 622GW, and I was able to use it to check for new firmware versions.

    • When I set the dash cam to record 2 minute long videos, every now and then, it missed a few seconds of footage when starting a new video. When I set it to 1 minute videos, I did not notice any time skips.

    In summary, it you already have an older Nextbase with the same mount, this is worth upgrading just for the image stabilization. The color cast is obnoxious, but if you’re trying to prove what happened, the color shift shouldn’t matter. If you’re not worried about easy install, then you should look for another dash cam that has image stability but with a superior image.

    Gorgeous Video and Dash Cam!

    Dashcams are a must in every vehicle, you never know when you will need one but it’s always better to have a dashcam than to not have one in an urgent situation. The Nextbase Dash Cam surprised me with all the various features! Some of my favorites are auto screen dimming, image stabilization, and the emergency SOS service just in case you get into an accident. The SOS service will alert medical services to your location. The 4k video is stunning and the nighttime video is extremely clear. The camera is heavy, but it feels like it was built extremely well. I found the installation of the dashcam easy and trouble-free. All I had to do was charge the camera for a few hours and it was ready for installation. The app is a great complementary to the camera as it allows you to view all your videos and change settings on your camera quickly. Although, there are a couple of bugs that need to be addressed. One of them being connecting to Alexa, I tried to connect to Alexa but unfortunately could not succeed.

    You will have the option to install the dash cam with a suction mount or an adhesive 3M mount. I went with the adhesive since the dashcam will be staying in my vehicle long term. The suction mount is perfect for portability. In the box, you will also receive a 12-24v power(cigarette) cable, a USB cable to view all your videos on your computer, and a power cable fitting tool to help you with the wiring for the camera.

    Overall, I would recommend this dashcam. This dashcam is a bit on the expensive side and the rear camera that goes with this is sold separately but if you have the funds for this dash cam, definitely consider this as one of your choices.

    Absolutely Stunning True 4K Dash Cam!

    I've owned a previous model, the Nextbase 322GW for a couple of years now, and with an unfortunate wreck back in August 2020, I added a rear view camera that month as well.

    I was so incredibly impressed with the Nextbase 322GW and the data it captured during that wreck, that I couldn't wait to try out this brand new 4K 622GW.

    Nextbase have continued the same mounting mechanism for their latest release, so it was as easy as unclipping my previous camera, and clipping in the new camera into the magnetic mount, and connecting the rearview camera (not included with the 622GW), and I was up and away. I'd already inserted a Nextbase 64GB card (which is recommended for 4K recording) and formatted it.

    Compared to the 322GW, the 622GW has a slightly larger footprint, a larger touchscreen on the back, and a significantly larger aperture for the lens on the front.

    The clarity of the 4K image is beautiful, the image stabilization feature works really, really well, and GPS location with What3Words make this dash cam invaluable.

    Touted as the 'Ultimate 4K Cinematic Dash Cam Experience', that is exactly what it is. The image is recorded in 4K (3840 x 2160) at 30fps, which gives you great clarity and detail, and the image stabilization allows you to view license plates with ease, and all the details of your journey. And the great thing is, that the 622GW records in full 4K, while also recording high quality 1080p through my rear camera, both at 30fps.

    This latest generation also comes with Enhanced Night Vision, which picks out a lot more detail in low light settings, clearer details on the darkest of roads. This is done by using larger pixels, which allow more light into the camera, coupled with image enhancing technology. In addition to that, the camera also features Extreme Weather Mode, which enhanced the image digitally in weather events such as fog, where details are a lot harder to see. Built in algorithms capture the clearest image possible.

    Super Slow Motion is another image setting that allows you to play slow motion videos, 1080p at 120fps, giving you the opportunity to reveal great detail, such as license plates or faces, should you need to.

    Compared side by side, the 4K resolution offers a less harsh contrast, creating higher definition, notably of clouds in the sky, you see all the gradients and undulations, whereas the 1080p version created harsher white shapes, with little definition. Of course, you aren't capturing clouds, that resolution translates into crisper, clearer visuals on the road, be it a road hazard, an incident, or a license plate.

    The image stabilization is in itself almost cinematic, I have quite a bumpy driveway that shakes my Jeep from side to side, but viewing through the 622GW, the image is smooth as silk. It truly is remarkable.

    You will also never be lost again, with the What3Words functionality embedded within the dash cam, it can pinpoint your exact location to a 3 meter squared space! What3Words has divided the world into 3 meter squares and assigned them a three word designation that will never change, allowing pinpoint accuracy, way more accurate than an address or an intersection. That location can then be shared with roadside assistance or emergency services, should you need to. Best of all, you don't need to have a data connection for it to work, it is able to provide your location at any time, no matter what. That's piece of mind right there!

    The 622GW has Alexa built in, so you can ask Alexa to play music, place calls, turn on your smart lights as you pull in the driveway, and even control the 622GW dash cam itself!

    The camera also has wifi connectivity, bluetooth connectivity and an SOS Emergency Alert option (should you choose to set it up) that can alert emergency services automatically, of your blood type, allergies or any other pre-set medical conditions to help with your treatment.

    Another invaluable feature is the intelligent parking mode that when set, automatically records if it notices any bumps or physical movement of the vehicle when left unattended. Perfect for a hit and run scenario or attempted theft. I definitely have that feature turned on at all times.

    The Nextbase downloadable software is phenomenal. I can speak from experience of the aforementioned wreck we recently had. The data available and picture quality was able to prove instantly with no contest that the wreck was not our fault. The software shows the speed, direction, GPS location, the G-force, and even Google Maps highlighted route of your direction of travel. So much data is available, and made it so much easier when filing an insurance claim. I had a response from the other parties insurance accepting 100% liability within 4 hours. No back and forth, it was right there in high definition.

    So far I have been incredibly impressed with everything that the 622GW has to offer in the short time I've owned it.

    Top of the line!

    Really wanted a 4k dash cam so that I could zoom in on recordings, in case I needed a license plate detail or road-sign etc. Being able to review videos on your phone is a huge plus. Also, Alexa is pretty sweet - I use it (her?) to listen to music/get the weather and other basic functions. I'm sure I could open garage doors/etc as well.

    Parking Mode works as advertised. I'm using the Cabin View rear cam which I really like! Great in-car view to save funny family moments. Very happy and really nothing to complain about except it's expensive!

    INSTALLATION & SET-UP

    Installation is quite hard to describe as everyone’s installation will be different if you use both front and rear cameras. However, basic installation of the M1 is super simple. One mini USB power cable and 2 silicone straps is all that is needed to get the unit mounted and installed. The 2 straps secure the M1 to your existing rearview mirror. The forward-facing camera slides in and out on a bracket on the left side (driver’s side) of the M1. The mini USB power cable plugs into the top and can be discreetly routed to a 12V power source. The overall length of the of the power cable is about 7 ft long, by my guesstimate. Basic installation is super easy and quick.

    Configuration of the M1 is handled at the mirror itself. The entire mirror is a touch screen and all menus are quickly and conveniently located within the mirror’s display. The dash cam has a good set of built-in adjustments to help fine tune the cameras and display to each users’ preferences. The user can set resolution, record duration, shock sensor sensitivity, date, time, volume, exposure, etc. just to name a few. Responsiveness of the touchscreen is smooth and consistent with very little to no lag.

    As mentioned before, the front, forward facing camera is mounted directly to the mirror/DVR. It can slide in and out about 2 inches to help match the size of your vehicle’s existing rearview. A nice feature is that the forward-facing camera is not stationary on its mount. It can be adjusted in all directions, as well as rotated. This ensures that the recorded image is level and square and the camera is positioned precisely how the user wants it. A very nice feature.

    PERFORMANCE

    I find the overall performance of the unit a somewhat mixed bag. I am very impressed with the front camera. Recording at night is always one of the greatest challenge of any dash cam. I am pleased to report that this camera has a much better night image than my current dash cam from another manufacturer. The wide aperture of the front camera ensures nighttime images, with nothing more than headlights illuminating the road ahead, are bright and the surrounding areas are very detailed. Traveling in urban areas at night was even more impressive. The camera does a great job of recording low light areas while not being blown out by streetlights, traffic lights, and oncoming vehicles. I am impressed with the quality of the recorded images compared to Rexing’s competition.

    However, the rear camera is not as great as the front. That wide aperture 1296p front camera is sorely missed in the rear. The rear camera makes do with just a 720p camera. I could not find any additional specs for the rear camera, but its image quality isn’t anywhere near as good as the front camera. Resolution aside, the rear camera is easily blown out by headlights. Bad enough that the user loses all sense of distance at night to the car behind. The image is worse than any plain rear-view mirror from decades ago. Not to mention, the image doesn’t dim as cars approach from behind, only adding to the lack of depth perception. While this may sound overly critical of the product, I find it an important issue. It’s my opinion that your rear visibility should be of utmost priority if your product is going to take the place of your existing rearview mirror. On a positive note, assuming there is not another vehicle behind, highway images and urban images are plenty detailed at night. Day time images are clear and detailed, as there is nothing to blind the camera from behind.

    The rear camera can also serve as a back-up camera, should your vehicle not be equipped. A single, one wire connection to your vehicle’s back-up lights is all that is needed to enable this feature. Once connected, the mirror overlays a pair of parking guidelines on the image when the car is shifted into reverse and disappear once the car is shifted to another gear. Very cool and very simple. Well thought out Rexing!

    The M1 is equipped with what Rexing calls a G-Sensor. It is like a constant guard dog for your vehicle. Once the camera powers down and goes to “sleep”, a built-in battery provides power to the shock sensor. The user decides the level of sensitivity for the shock sensor in the mirror’s set-up menu. If the car then receives a jarring movement greater than that threshold, the mirror records images from both cameras and automatically locks them to prevent deletion.

    DRAWBACKS

    I have already discussed the most significant drawback already and that is the poor performance of the rear camera at night. The whole point of the M1 is that it replaces your existing rearview mirror. However, the easily blown out images at night make it hard to determine distances to other cars behind. The whole mirror basically becomes a big, white ball of light with no detail whatsoever.

    In addition to the poor performance of the rearview camera, it must be noted that the included power cable for the rear camera will not fit every vehicle. Rexing clearly intends this camera to be used in a sedan, crossover, or small SUV. The power cord is nowhere near long enough to fit a standard half-ton full-size truck that Americans know and love. I installed this camera on the rear bumper of a late model F-150 SuperCrew with the 5.5 foot bed. No matter how I ran the cable, it was not long enough to reach the mirror. I was forced to purchase an extension cable to complete my installation. On a positive note, should I decide to move the camera to the back window of the F-150, the included power cable would be more than long enough to reach the rear facing camera.

    The rear camera’s mounting bracket is poorly designed. Rexing fully intends this camera to be mounted from the top, looking back (from a rear window or under the lip of a truck or decklid). There is no way to flip the mounting bracket over to mount it from the bottom. Attempting to do so only results in an upside-down image on the mirror. A super simple design change, only to the mounting bracket, would solve this issue and cost next to nothing for Rexing. Update: I was able to get the rear facing camera bottom mounted, but not without some Dremel work to the included mounting bracket.

    This dashcam is missing two important features: The first is GPS. The M1 is not equipped with GPS and does not appear to have the option to support it. Second, this dashcam does not have the ability to stream its recordings to a mobile device. While not as big of a deal breaker as GPS, the ability to stream playback is super convenient. The Rexing M1 allows for playback of the recordings either via the mirror itself, or by removing the microSD card and using a computer with a common player like VLC. Easy enough, but it’s still a hassle.

    CONCLUSION

    The M1 is a slick product and everyone that has seen it, really likes it. I also like it. I currently own a competitor’s dashcam and am sold at having a camera both front and rear now. Will the Rexing replace my existing forward-facing only dashcam? Yes, it will. The overall issue I have with the Rexing M1 is that it seems they put all their effort into the mirror and front camera. The rear camera, mounting bracket, power cable all appear like afterthoughts. Something to check a box. The lack of GPS and streaming options are definitely cost cutting efforts and to keep the product from encroaching on Rexing’s other offerings. If I had not been spoiled by my current dashcam’s GPS and Wi-Fi streaming, I might consider this a non-issue. But once you have those options, it is hard to give them up. While not perfect, this is a good product at an attractive price point. The addition of dual cameras at this price point is a great add-on, even if I’m not thoroughly impressed by the rear camera’s offering. However, should a person not need all the additional bells and whistles, this unit will serve them well.

    Does the job

    The Rexing dual front and rear facing camera is a unique approach on a pretty common placed dash cam set up. The real question comes down to how well it works and at this price point is this going to be a good buy for you. My hope is that this review will help to clear up any questions you may have before you buy this set up.

    First off lets talk about what you can expect to receive out of the box and the route that Rexing decided to take with this set up. Out of the box your going to receive the forward facing camera, rear camera, body panel tool, power cables/wiring, some cheap adhesive mounts, and a very basic unhelpful instruction manual. If your not planning on wiring the rear camera to your back up lights to act as a parking aid then set up really isn't too much trouble. Simply mount the forward facing camera directly over your existing rear view mirror then with the provided body panel tool simply run your wires along the molding to the nearest power outlet or cigarette lighter. The rear camera is done in the same manner except instead of going to a power outlet it will hook up to the forward facing camera. I chose to mount mine on the inside of the car on the ceiling near the rear window. Now if you wish you can chose to run the provided wire to your back up lights to provide a parking aid however keep in mind you will need some mild automotive skill as this is going to require you to piggy back the provided wire off of your vehicles reverse light power circuit. Me personally i feel that running the parking aid is useless as the LCD screen will default to the rear camera once it is installed. What this means is every time you power up your dash cam the rear camera is always displayed, so as your backing up the camera is on to guide you, the only real thing you will be lacking is the stupid red, yellow and green lines to help guide you.

    Lets talk functionality now. Going back to the initial set up there are a couple of things that left a really bad taste in my mouth. One you will need a micro SD card to record and well guess what they don't provide you one. Its like a kid at Christmas getting his favorite toy only to find out you now have to run to the store to go pick up some batteries. Once you get a card in there it will have to be formatted before it will record. Recording can only be done in intervals of 1, 3, and 5 mins. Running a 128 Gig SD card so far i've been able to save up to 45, five minute footage clips. Second thing that bothered me was there was no provided app. As far in to technology as we are there is a app for everything, EXCEPT this dash cam. I have tested several other dash cams and even the cheap $40 dash cams come with a app that you can use to access your footage or save and store your footage. If you need to save your footage it can be done one of two ways. It will save directly on to the camera via the SD card or you have to pull the SD card out and upload it to your PC. Second Rexing kinda has this to be future proof (sort of) in the way of firmware updates however since there is no provided app at this point you will have to remove the camera and hook it up to your PC for firmware updates. Third it uses a automated power shut down feature that works only if your car is set up for it. Let me explain what i mean by this and how it was a drag for me. The unit hooks up to a power supply outlet which is in the form of a cigarette lighter. The only problem is all cigarette lighters receive power at all times rather the car is on or off. Only newer vehicles that have a dedicated power source that is tied in to the ignition switch will power off when the vehicle is powered off. My vehicle doesn't have a dedicated power source tied in to the ignition so what this boils down to is if you are like me and don't like having the LCD screen on at night because its too bright, then you better hope you remember to shut the camera off when you get to your destination or the camera will stay on all night recording while draining your battery down. I made this mistake several times and woke up one morning to a very weak battery. And last but certainty not least is the way this dash cam takes the place of your rear view mirror. This can be a annoying feature or cool feature depending on your view of this set up. With it taking the place of your rear view this means you have two ways of looking behind you. You can either utilize the rear facing camera if you have it installed however there are two things i found annoying with this set up. One, during the day the sun causes a double image as you see in the photo i provided and two while using this at night its pretty distracting as the LCD screen can be bright even at the lowest setting. If you don't want to use this set up then you can turn the LCD screen off and use its reflective screen as a mirror. During the day this method works pretty good however at night forget about it. The only thing your going to see at at night is faint lines and headlights. Oh, also if you have tinted windows then you are really going to struggle to see at night out of your rear view. If your curious just to how well the reflective screen works, simply go up to your computer monitor while it is off and that is basically how reflective it is.

    Let's bring some positive comments in this conversation now. The picture quality is really good both on the forward facing camera and rear camera. I was more surprised as to how well the rear camera recorded as it is only a 720p lens. Quality was good enough to make out license plates and people in the vehicle behind you. There is a built in mic which picks up crystal clear audio and can be turned on/off on the fly. The forward facing camera gives you a nice wide angle lens so that you are able to pick up on areas that would normally be out of a cameras field of vision. You have the ability to also take snap shot still photos which can be saved for later use. If you run out of memory no biggie as the camera will automatically over write footage starting with the oldest. There is a built in G-Sensor which hopefully i never have to use. The way the G-Sensor works is if it is turned on and it detects a sudden impact in the vehicle it will lock all recorded footage up to that moment so that it cannot be deleted. Over all that's pretty much about it.

    Here's my final thoughts. Does it do what it is intended to do? Absolutely. Is video footage good? Nope, its actually great. The main issues i have is that im comparing this set up to other units that i have tried and ya while it gets you from point A to point B it seems to take the scenic route in the way it gets there. What i mean by this is it utilizes no app service or cloud storage, updates must be done via a PC, there is no provided SD card, but more importantly it takes the place of your rear view mirror without being as reflective as your rear view mirror. This feature alone is so annoying to me that i have actually started to fabricate myself a bracket simply so i can mount the screen on to my dash so that i can get my rear view mirror back. All in all this is really going to come down to personal preference and for me at this price point i feel there are way better cameras in the market that do a better job at achieving their goal without being as intrusive to your vehicles set up. My suggestion would be to make sure you research other options before diving in to this unit.

    Not a good solution to the problem

    Full disclosure - I received this product as part of a review board.

    I have used dashcams before, so I am comparing this product to what was considered the standard among the shared ride driver with whom I spoke.

    PROS:

    1. Easy to mount on your rearview mirror, simply wrap the rubber straps around your existing mirror

    2. Relatively low cost

    Neutral:

    The rear-facing camera is a separate camera meant to mount where you existing back-up camera is today, so it replaces it without having a rearfacing camera the sees your backseat. Good if you want a back-up camera, not good if you are a shared ride driver and need the interior recording.

    CONS:

    1. The instructions are not sequenced correctly for the physical layout of the camera. It tells you to mount the camera and then insert the memory card. This is difficult to see to do and to insert your hand once it is on the rearview mirror. This is just one example of the poorly-written instruction manual, which like some product manuals for items manufactured overseas, has not been written in English by a native English speaker but rather translated.. Also, it exposes the greatest fault, which is -

    2. The power button is in the place where my hand lands most of the time when adjusting the mirror or handing the Rexing, smack in the middle of the bottom of the frame. If you take your right hand and place it on your own rear view mirror, look to see where your thumb is and that is precisely where the power button is located. I found my self turning the unit on and off every time I touched it.

    2. The instructions for formatting the SD card are either incorrect or the firmware is faulty. I followed the instructions and never received a " formatting complete" message, only the same repeated instructions to format the card. The card did format and video did record well, in 90 MB files.

    3. The menu does not appear until you touch the screen - that is nowhere in the instructions.

    4. There is no app to assist with the setup - all setup is done on the Rexing screen.

    5. The video quality is poor - in an attached file, you cannot make out the license plate of an approaching vehicle no more than 10 feet away.

    6. Because f the rubber mounting straps, the slightest vehicle vibration is translated to your rear view mirror and thus to the Rexing. In other words, it shares a lot.

    7. The camera picks up all the reflection from both the glare and the interior surface of my vehicle - you can clearly see the top of my dash in the attached image.

    Finally, the ample wiring on this product screams out for professional installation. The cost of professionally install this product (run the power wire to a hot wire in the front and the rear camera video and power wires to the back, all done under the trim in a manner that is undetectable and does not destroy your interior, would probably be greater than the cost of the item itself. With this poor video and software quality and especially because of the design of the position of the power button, I'm not interested in finding out.

    nice design, good video captures

    The best part about this dash cam is the 10" display screen, it uses the full reverse mirror as a touch screen display, making it very easy to see your recordings, and to select features. It also uses a special horizontal view about 1/3rd of what the camera actually sees and records, so that everything doesn't look too compressed and distorted. You can still see the rest of the video by re-positioning the view up or down, to see what doesn't fit into the mirror screen, but the standard view is usually perfect.The video quality is pretty good during the day, everything is very distinguishable, and the detail on vehicles and buildings is pretty good, however it is very difficult to make out words smaller than probably a foot in height. License plates and street signs are rarely legible, unless you are literally sitting on top of them. This is fairly typical with a lot of dash cams, especially as everything is always in motion.The cameras must come with a very low lux rating( which is good), I can only presume, because they seems to pick up most things in low light areas, but pretty much nothing in pure darkness. In the settings there is an option for "night mode" on or off. When in the "on" mode, glare is cut down slightly at night, and darker areas are smoother looking, and less grainy.There is a microphone mounted on the device that seems to pick up all the cabin sounds., and the speaker is loud enough to hear everything during playback. The device is very easy to install, just make sure the front facing camera is extended out to the side, then place the unit over your existing rear view mirror , and pull the two rubber straps around the back of the mirror, and latch them to the bottom of the dash cam. I love how less obtrusive this is, over other dash cams that take up too much of your windows view. Once the Dash cam is attached you can add the power and optional rear view camera input. The rear camera is the only thing that is going to take a little bit of effort, to run the wires, and attach in a good spot. The camera actually disconnects from the bulk of the wires, so that you can run the wires easier, and then just plug the camera back in afterwards. The wide angle view on both cameras is pretty good at 140 degrees, but even more impressive as there is almost no fish-eye distortion in the videos.The cam also has a G-Sensor, that can be set to different sensitivities to automatically save protected videos of accidents or someone tampering with your car while it's unattended. There is no GPS, so this can not log your speed or travels in that manner. However there is a GPS port on the top of the cam, that at this moment does not function, but according to Rexing support, they are planning on making this an active port through a future firmware revision.It also does not have any wireless capabilities to your phone, wifi, or other cameras.. But at this price point with those features, that would be a steal.It does however have guided back up lines for parking, when wired correctly.If you splice the red rear camera wire into the reverse lights, every time you put the vehicle into reverse, the rear camera is activated on screen, and the guide lines are present.As with most dash cams, you can take still photos from the menu on the touch screen.You can adjust a lot of the features in the settings, including video length, duration, volume, exposure, G-sensor and video looping.The playback menu includes folders for both the front camera and rear camera. These videos run in full screen isolated of each other. They do not play side by side, so you get the full view of each while watching them back. All the videos are date and time stamped so you could find the corresponding rear view with the same time as the front camera if needing to show both perspectives for any reason. There are also two extra folders in the playback menu one extra for the front and one for the back, they are labeled with "F" and "R" but also have a small notation to the bottom right of the letter that is too small for me to make out. I asked Rexing support about these, and they didn't have much to say, so I am assuming these folders might be for a future recording feature not yet implemented.If you are looking for a decent quality dual camera system than this should meet your needs.

    *****WARNING - do not update your firmware to Version: M1-36-966-190403 after doing the update from the Rexing website, it has made my camera inoperable. The front camera output is black, and the rear camera output is off center and digitized. Rexing is not sure why this has happened to my dash cam, and is trying to find a solution. So just a word of caution, although, this could be an isolated incident with my cam.

    An Excellent Dash Cam

    For the price, this dash cam is packed with features. Let's start with what's in the box: the front facing camera/ mirror combo, the rear camera, the rear extension cable (18ft), the charging cable for the front facing camera (12ft), a cable management tool for getting the cords under trim and ceiling fabric (surprisingly useful), cable management clips for running the rear cable to the back of your car, and mounting stickies/ screws for the rear camera. The rear camera is waterproof so it can be mounted either inside your vehicle or right above the license plate on the outside of your vehicle. It's fairly simple to install all of this yourself, but Geek Squad does offer professional installation if you'd rather not. One thing to note about the rear camera is that it has to be wired to your taillight for the auto backup function to work. That is, when you put your vehicle into reverse, that signal triggers the rear camera system to display parking lines. If you don't want to deal with wiring and still want to use this feature, I'd highly recommend having Geek Squad install the camera.

    As a part-time food delivery and rideshare driver, having a dash camera has been an absolute necessity for me. Of the dash cameras I've used in the past, this one is excellent. Both cameras are inconspicuous. The front camera is completely adjustable and customizable. You can record in 1296p, 1080p, or 720p all at 30fps. You can slip micro SD cards (up to 256gb) in and out of the top of the camera easily. Formatting happened automatically for me, but there is a button in the settings menu if you need to do it manually. The date and time show up on the right side of the mirror/ screen with the active settings (such as collision detection) visible above with little icons. You can adjust how long the camera is on after vehicle startup before switching to the screensaver setting. Or if you'd rather have a constant view behind your vehicle through the rear camera, you can do that too.

    The rear camera records in 720p at 25fps which seems to be just fine. Footage is clear enough that you'd be able to make out a license plate if someone rear-ended you. When you hit the record button, both cameras record at the same time, but the only camera visible on the display is the rearview camera. If you unplug the rear camera, the front camera image will be displayed instead. All recorded footage can be viewed on the display by clicking the playback button. I tried the backup camera function and it works flawlessly. That being said, in my particular case, the backup feature is completely redundant. For older vehicles, the backup camera feature and constant view through the rear camera are definitely positive additions to the driving experience. However, I have a vehicle already equipped with a backup camera and a specialized rearview mirror. For this reason, I've disabled the backup camera feature. The front camera also covers the mirror I paid extra for when I purchased my vehicle (shown in picture). Not a huge deal given I want front and rear facing footage around my car at all times, but just something to consider when making the purchase.

    Overall, I don't think you'll be disappointed if you purchase this camera system. The touch display is easy to use and pretty simple to navigate. I haven't needed it in any critical situations, but I trust Rexing to record and save footage properly in case I ever do!

    Slick front and rear dash cam on a budget

    The Rexing M1 is an excellent front and rear dash cam at a good value. In fact, this could easily be a 5 star rating with a simple firmware update. Let's start with the good.

    If you've ever wanted a hidden screen in your car, you're in luck. The Rexing M1 straps onto the front of your rear view mirror with elastic bands holding it in place. Yeah, the little slide out camera is a bit of a give away and so are the power and camera wires on top, but it's fairly low key overall. What's really nifty is that the whole mirror is a screen, unlike most systems where the screen is just a box in the mirror. By doing this, the reflection is consistent for the whole mirror so it's not obvious it's hiding a monitor for a much better stealth effect. Plus you can use it to live stream the rear view camera for an extremely wide rear view mirror view. Sometimes I'm torn between using it in mirror mode or live streaming the rear view camera, but the only reason I'm undecided on this is because of how good the cameras are. The picture quality is crisp, bright, and offers good color rendition. What's most impressive is how well they do in low light. It's noisy in absolute darkness, but does a surprisingly good job while driving through town at night. The #1 thing a dash cam should be good at is being a camera, and for the budget the Rexing M1 passes with flying colors.

    If you really want to make this a slick item, get it professionally installed so all the wires are hidden and the mirror blends in. The wiring harness for the rear camera attaches to one of your reverse lights, so the mirror automatically switches to the rear camera view when the car is put in reverse. You can set the screen to timeout after the car is out of reverse or to constantly live stream the front or rear camera angles. It's a touch screen display, so switching views is as simple as swiping left and right. There's a few things you can customize in settings like smart illumination, picture quality, and contrast, however I wish it was possible to change to a 12 hour clock format. I don't really mind the military time, but I'd rather not have to do the math. Maybe in a future firmware update? Speaking of which, I updated mine to the latest firmware and it unlocked a higher quality SHD recording quality. Unfortunately, setting it to this mode disables the rear camera completely, which means it’s only useful if you're using it exclusively as a front dash cam. Personally, the FHD quality is crisp enough and keeps the rear camera alive, so that's where I keep it. I absolutely love that it records the front and rear at the same time and the built-in mic does a great job of picking up sound. What also makes the M1 a delight is that it records video in the .mov file type. This is playable by most video players today, meaning no need to waste time converting files. Just drag and drop the file to where you want it. EASY.

    While the Rexing M1 is a solid piece of hardware overall, it could easily be a 5 star item with a firmware update. I'd love to see a 12 hour clock, parking lot monitor feature, and an SHD mode that keeps the rear camera alive. Also, the screen time out feature is called screen saver for some reason. Translation issue? Either way, it's a solid unit and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a stealthy dash cam.

    It’s ehhhhh

    Not to bad depending on the car you have it can very well be harder to install. Camera quality is good but when it rains back camera is badly affected by the rain easy to use.

    INSTALLATION & SET-UP

    Installation is quite hard to describe as everyone’s installation will be different if you use both front and rear cameras. However, basic installation of the M1 is super simple. One mini USB power cable and 2 silicone straps is all that is needed to get the unit mounted and installed. The 2 straps secure the M1 to your existing rearview mirror. The forward-facing camera slides in and out on a bracket on the left side (driver’s side) of the M1. The mini USB power cable plugs into the top and can be discreetly routed to a 12V power source. The overall length of the of the power cable is about 7 ft long, by my guesstimate. Basic installation is super easy and quick.

    Configuration of the M1 is handled at the mirror itself. The entire mirror is a touch screen and all menus are quickly and conveniently located within the mirror’s display. The dash cam has a good set of built-in adjustments to help fine tune the cameras and display to each users’ preferences. The user can set resolution, record duration, shock sensor sensitivity, date, time, volume, exposure, etc. just to name a few. Responsiveness of the touchscreen is smooth and consistent with very little to no lag.

    As mentioned before, the front, forward facing camera is mounted directly to the mirror/DVR. It can slide in and out about 2 inches to help match the size of your vehicle’s existing rearview. A nice feature is that the forward-facing camera is not stationary on its mount. It can be adjusted in all directions, as well as rotated. This ensures that the recorded image is level and square and the camera is positioned precisely how the user wants it. A very nice feature.

    PERFORMANCE

    I find the overall performance of the unit a somewhat mixed bag. I am very impressed with the front camera. Recording at night is always one of the greatest challenge of any dash cam. I am pleased to report that this camera has a much better night image than my current dash cam from another manufacturer. The wide aperture of the front camera ensures nighttime images, with nothing more than headlights illuminating the road ahead, are bright and the surrounding areas are very detailed. Traveling in urban areas at night was even more impressive. The camera does a great job of recording low light areas while not being blown out by streetlights, traffic lights, and oncoming vehicles. I am impressed with the quality of the recorded images compared to Rexing’s competition.

    However, the rear camera is not as great as the front. That wide aperture 1296p front camera is sorely missed in the rear. The rear camera makes do with just a 720p camera. I could not find any additional specs for the rear camera, but its image quality isn’t anywhere near as good as the front camera. Resolution aside, the rear camera is easily blown out by headlights. Bad enough that the user loses all sense of distance at night to the car behind. The image is worse than any plain rear-view mirror from decades ago. Not to mention, the image doesn’t dim as cars approach from behind, only adding to the lack of depth perception. While this may sound overly critical of the product, I find it an important issue. It’s my opinion that your rear visibility should be of utmost priority if your product is going to take the place of your existing rearview mirror. On a positive note, assuming there is not another vehicle behind, highway images and urban images are plenty detailed at night. Day time images are clear and detailed, as there is nothing to blind the camera from behind.

    The rear camera can also serve as a back-up camera, should your vehicle not be equipped. A single, one wire connection to your vehicle’s back-up lights is all that is needed to enable this feature. Once connected, the mirror overlays a pair of parking guidelines on the image when the car is shifted into reverse and disappear once the car is shifted to another gear. Very cool and very simple. Well thought out Rexing!

    The M1 is equipped with what Rexing calls a G-Sensor. It is like a constant guard dog for your vehicle. Once the camera powers down and goes to “sleep”, a built-in battery provides power to the shock sensor. The user decides the level of sensitivity for the shock sensor in the mirror’s set-up menu. If the car then receives a jarring movement greater than that threshold, the mirror records images from both cameras and automatically locks them to prevent deletion.

    DRAWBACKS

    I have already discussed the most significant drawback already and that is the poor performance of the rear camera at night. The whole point of the M1 is that it replaces your existing rearview mirror. However, the easily blown out images at night make it hard to determine distances to other cars behind. The whole mirror basically becomes a big, white ball of light with no detail whatsoever.

    In addition to the poor performance of the rearview camera, it must be noted that the included power cable for the rear camera will not fit every vehicle. Rexing clearly intends this camera to be used in a sedan, crossover, or small SUV. The power cord is nowhere near long enough to fit a standard half-ton full-size truck that Americans know and love. I installed this camera on the rear bumper of a late model F-150 SuperCrew with the 5.5 foot bed. No matter how I ran the cable, it was not long enough to reach the mirror. I was forced to purchase an extension cable to complete my installation. On a positive note, should I decide to move the camera to the back window of the F-150, the included power cable would be more than long enough to reach the rear facing camera.

    The rear camera’s mounting bracket is poorly designed. Rexing fully intends this camera to be mounted from the top, looking back (from a rear window or under the lip of a truck or decklid). There is no way to flip the mounting bracket over to mount it from the bottom. Attempting to do so only results in an upside-down image on the mirror. A super simple design change, only to the mounting bracket, would solve this issue and cost next to nothing for Rexing. Update: I was able to get the rear facing camera bottom mounted, but not without some Dremel work to the included mounting bracket.

    This dashcam is missing two important features: The first is GPS. The M1 is not equipped with GPS and does not appear to have the option to support it. Second, this dashcam does not have the ability to stream its recordings to a mobile device. While not as big of a deal breaker as GPS, the ability to stream playback is super convenient. The Rexing M1 allows for playback of the recordings either via the mirror itself, or by removing the microSD card and using a computer with a common player like VLC. Easy enough, but it’s still a hassle.

    CONCLUSION

    The M1 is a slick product and everyone that has seen it, really likes it. I also like it. I currently own a competitor’s dashcam and am sold at having a camera both front and rear now. Will the Rexing replace my existing forward-facing only dashcam? Yes, it will. The overall issue I have with the Rexing M1 is that it seems they put all their effort into the mirror and front camera. The rear camera, mounting bracket, power cable all appear like afterthoughts. Something to check a box. The lack of GPS and streaming options are definitely cost cutting efforts and to keep the product from encroaching on Rexing’s other offerings. If I had not been spoiled by my current dashcam’s GPS and Wi-Fi streaming, I might consider this a non-issue. But once you have those options, it is hard to give them up. While not perfect, this is a good product at an attractive price point. The addition of dual cameras at this price point is a great add-on, even if I’m not thoroughly impressed by the rear camera’s offering. However, should a person not need all the additional bells and whistles, this unit will serve them well.
