Very good gps system, like if very much! Only one exception...I would like to have a "weighted" mount for this dezl OTR800. It only has a "suction" plate for windshield/dash mount. The salesman said the one for the Nuvi would work...it didn't. So I am having to use the windshield mount. Other than that, I love this Garmin GPS truck navigator.Aug 01, 2021 18:22
By far hands down this is the best GPS of 2021 for OTR drivers and local too it works great in both vertical and horizontal directionsMar 01, 2021 11:37
This was a great upgrade gift to my trucker he likes the bigger screen & features overall he love the productNov 12, 2021 17:53
Great trucking GPS. I brought this one because my old one just cut off on my one day. This will get you where you need to go and the maps are great.Jul 23, 2021 19:09
Works great, the screen is super responsive and the map updates are accurate for the areas that I travel.Nov 13, 2020 16:24
Absolutely the best navigation system for long haul trucking .Nov 05, 2021 16:40
Easy to navigate but does not pick up on road construction at all. My last garmin would pick up on road construction and give me alternative routes quite quickly. Neat function it does have I can plan my route myself though. So I take a lil time to do it nowOct 30, 2021 10:10
Never had one before easy to use great product. Would highly recommend this one.Nov 07, 2021 09:51
Find your way toward various campgrounds with this 6.95-inch Garmin RV navigator. Custom routing provides the right paths to take based on vehicle specs, and Garmin Traffic service keeps you updated on current road conditions. Pair this Bluetooth-enabled Garmin RV navigator with a smartphone to take hands-free calls and receive notifications.
I have the Rand McNally rv and it’s hard to load your trip and sometimes takes you the wrong way which is a disaster when pulling a 5th wheel. The RV 780 is easy to load your trip and gives alternate routes to take on your gps You can program your trip right on the gps and don’t need your computer. The RV 780 is is lighter and more convenient to use and so far it takes me the way I’ve planed to go.Sep 04, 2021 04:32
Compared to my old Garmin, I like the large size of the screen. I have the ability to select what type of vehicle I'm driving, such as pickup truck or car, and if I am towing a trailer, the specifics of the trailer. It has lifetime map updates.Oct 31, 2021 10:18
Great GPS for RV'ers. I am able to input all the info for my RV, (height width) so it routes me around low bridges and road that are difficult for long length trailers. Also routes you to services able to handle my truck and fifth wheelMar 08, 2021 00:13
Worked great for my first RV road trip. Really like the features you can't get with your phone GPS. Love Garmin.May 01, 2021 11:51
Nice upgrade from the NUVI 52 we had. The RV options, height, length, etc. is nice to have included as well as campground listings.
It would be better if they included a mount besides a suction cup. I prefer a mount that will not easily fall off the windshield like others have done.Jul 18, 2020 13:05
Gps works as expected. Arrived on time.
Pleased with ourchase.Oct 09, 2021 06:31
Love the ease of using it to find campgrounds and other places. Works way better than the Magellan we had.May 07, 2021 16:44
Only went on 1 trip so far but no issues worked well, very happy so far.Aug 20, 2021 21:44

Best gps I have bought I have in the past year spent over $2000.00 on rand mcnally products and they all have the screen locked up this does greatJan 17, 2021 21:49
It’s a good product for a beginner trucker. I like the way it’s shows which lane to be in and all the rest stops and much more on way to your next stop. i feel it could better which it’s GSP. It’s sent me a long way then I need to . But once I got to my stop some trucker help my find a better way . Love the 10 inch screen and real glad I bought worth every dollar.Jan 01, 2021 18:18

Excellent service and Product very very nice persons.Aug 20, 2021 17:32
Great Gps. This unit is large! Garmin is always my go to GPS.Jul 18, 2021 03:17
This hands down is by far the best truck GPS I've used. There's so many great features on it. First of all it has a great suction cup great quality and very sturdy. It's been on my truck windshield and it hasn't moved even after all those crazy bumps I go through on the road. The screen size is perfect with a bigger screen you get more map details and you can add your side information without compromising your map. Custom truck routing you just enter your truck profile and the GPS will find truck prefer routes best suited for your rig and load. This GPS provide a view of popular truck routes this by far is one of the best features and one of the reasons why I switched from the Rand McNally to this OTR 1000. Driving in unfamilitary territorry? See popular truck routes used by other truckers to increase your situation awareness. This has driver alerts driver alerts warn you about coming sharp curve speed changes railroad crossing and more. It also lets you know when there's a weigh station coming up. Another great feature that I like is the Live traffic feature very useful. This will show you construction zones, congested areas. If you run this and compare it with Google maps you'll be able to save yourself sometime by avoiding nasty traffic by rerouting. This has saved me delays numerous times. I really like how you can connect this GPS to your hotspot and it will get automatic updates. And to top it off when you link your phone to Garmin drive app to run with this GPS it will provide information on your GPS screen like text messages or calls. I don't know what other GPS can do this but this is a great feature this will actually read your messages and show them on the side of the GPS display. Don't think about it just get it!May 26, 2021 10:29

Love it ,this is mysecond device very accurate and confortableApr 27, 2021 12:01
Love it can’t complain my wife bought it for me for my birthday also have a tremendous blue tooth connected hands free device feature worth the price will be a germin fan for for now and for everMar 28, 2021 14:22
As a truck driver, this GPS is good but not 100 % accurate, you must to put special attention to the lower bridges or sometimes fail to say that is not a truck road when it really is. also the new design of the cable is not like the older one was better for me.Jan 24, 2021 14:24
Very reliable so far (used about a month on a daily basis). Some of the features could be a little more user friendly but I also could have read the directions before using....
It has a lot of truck information on the screen on your route even if you aren't using the GPS (sharp curve ahead, grades, etc.)Oct 23, 2021 07:45
Good tool for truckers on the road but I always keep two gps devices going just make sure it’s the same address helps when getting close to an exit screen will zoom in on lane and make sure it lets you know the exact lane for your exit and live traffic as well as speed limit and your speed will be on screen so it helps only wish would be if it had a camera in it.Oct 10, 2021 08:38
Great screen. Once the device was set up I was very pleased with the amount of detail it requested about my vehicle. In use, I've had some issues. I've seen it suggest some routes that would NOT have been ok in my 30' vehicle. Mainly turning ratio issues in Manhatten. Other than that I am happy. A tad pricey but worth it.Oct 01, 2021 17:41
We have used our Garmin on short trips just to test some of the features. It performed flawlessly. We are taking a trip to Florida in the spring and are looking forward to using our Garmin.Nov 13, 2021 07:49

Solid GPS updated over WiFi. Has Bluetooth can send call and music to GPS Bright. Screen size of a large Android phone S10 + very thin lightJul 02, 2021 16:52
The direction given by the map and the voice help is sometimes different. One is telling me to go to the right exit while the other one shows that I should remain in the left lane....Jun 04, 2021 01:10

Been trucking for 15 years. When used with an app that overlays google maps, (for more up to date traffic issues, pumps, stops, etc...) it is a great little machine. I had the 9" but went back to this one. I prefer something that doesnt take up half my windshield.Oct 31, 2021 19:38
More than just your average GPS. Tells you when your approaching the scales and there distance, it gives you the weight and height information of what you are towing for bridges and keeps you off restricted routes. It has Bluetooth capabilities so you can talk to others through your phone hands free.
Excellent purchase and worth the money.Dec 25, 2020 16:30
Good item but have to exchange it twice. Did not update very well.Apr 30, 2021 15:49
Excellent Product Very very happy with this GPS. I usually never leave reviews but I had to for this.. it’s very user friendly easy to use while driving to find parking, etc. The mount suctions well and hasn’t fallen off not yet even once.. seems to be accurate as well I compare routes to google and Apple Maps and the GPS is spot on. I can’t find one thing I don’t like about it I was debating on getting the bigger one but glad I didn’t the 7” works perfectly fine for me don’t see the point of spending the 100s of dollars for the bigger screens. The speaker could be a bit louder but I also drive a straight piped 379 but I still can hear it clearly. 10/10 would buy again and would recommend. It also warns you of upcoming traffic, weight stations, weight limits, etc. if you’re on the fence this is the one.May 21, 2021 15:53
From the first time I used this GPS I have had no problems always gets me where I need to be and is accurate on the arrival time best purchase I’ve made for my truckMay 24, 2019 18:52
My driver needed a GPS that was going to help him navigate bridges. I purchased one from a different vendor and it didn't do what we needed even though it said it did. With the help of an in store sales rep he helped me purchase this Garmin that has absolutely satisfied our needs.Jan 16, 2020 17:08
Works as designed by Garmin, have been using it for a month in New York City area and haven't hit any bridge or street not authorized to be on.May 16, 2020 06:35
Garmen GPS this is really good GPS for Traveling specially if you driven a BIG truckApr 13, 2021 05:56
Rexing V5 Plus 4K dash cam enables you to recard video of the road ahead, behind, and your vehicle interior area. The 170 degree ultra-wide-angle lenses capture more of the surroundings, and the infrared night vision lets you capture clear footage any time of the day. This UHD 3-channel dash cam also features a parking monitor capability that automatically begins recording after detecting vibrations.
- Voice Command works nicely
- 3-channel Cameras provide greater coverage
- Installation was fairly easy, just tedious running wires
- 4k Resolution on front camera
- 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 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.
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.
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).
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.
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.Aug 31, 2021 15:51
Dash cams are fantastic on keeping people honest. This does have 3 cameras but there is a caveat if you want 4k recordings.
• Comes with everything you need to get started
• Fantastic rear camera resolution
• Voice commands is responsive
• 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.
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.
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.
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.Sep 01, 2021 23:01
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).
- 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.Sep 02, 2021 01:00
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.Sep 13, 2021 19:11
REXING - V5 PLUS 3-CHANNEL 4K DASH CAM 2.7 LCD WITH VOICE CONTROL, WI-FI, GPS - BLACK
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”.
- 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.
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.Aug 28, 2021 08:23
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.
-Comes with everything you need to get it setup and using it
-Good voice commands
-No built in battery
-Cannot download your video straight to your phone
-Menus need updated
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.Sep 07, 2021 10:20
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.Sep 07, 2021 14:53
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.
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.Sep 02, 2021 05:10
Find your way through unfamiliar territory with this TomTom Trucker GPS unit. It lets you create customized routes, and stopped traffic alerts let you know of backed up highways so you can find alternatives or avoid sudden braking. This TomTom Trucker GPS unit receives updated maps via Wi-Fi with no computer needed.
It's a good device, but complicated. The thing is is you have to put truck dimensions in for it to put you on accurate route.Nov 02, 2019 08:16
Wasn't giving me free traffic updates and camera warnings when I first bought it. Had to call their offices for them to fix it.Oct 20, 2021 15:36
I’ve had this GPS for about a month now and it’s really not for truckers. On 2 occasions it routed my down a “no truck traffic” street and twice I’ve put in hazmat and it tried to send me on “no hazmat” route. It’s nice that you can download the app and sync them and put the info in your phone and send it to the GPS (as long as it’s on) and update the maps on WiFi, but the crucial parts I need don’t really work!May 18, 2019 19:30
It is not perfect, but pretty darn close. I love it. I 1st used it to make a road trip to Montreal. I use it all the time during football season traveling to schools. Only real issue is sometimes it doesn't connect to the real time traffic feature.Nov 19, 2020 13:12
My husband is a truck driver and he says he loves this. Just need to update the maps hit other than that it’s awesomeMay 28, 2021 17:11
Tom Tom was exactly what we were looking for and a great price. If you need great locations to be pinpointed, TRUCKER 620 6" GPS with Built in Bluetooth is the way to go. The Lifetime map updates and traffic updates were an added bonus. Thanks Best Buy!Nov 17, 2020 23:55
My husband uses this for work. He is a truck driver. It has been a great buy. Works perfect!Aug 07, 2021 19:46
It’s a Great GPS, But I have it set to Truck, and it’s sending me down the Baltimore Washington Parkway, and no Trucks are allowed!Dec 18, 2020 16:18

Great and helpful dash cámara
Like a lot my family love it!!!Jan 28, 2021 03:55
I like it because it has an internal battery and can work without being in the cigarette lighterJan 30, 2021 06:49
Does not hold a charge / power unless plugged into cigarette lighter, or hot wired to car.Mar 12, 2021 15:45
This is my fist dash cam and I am enjoying the experience of having one. I received it at a great sale price. I like the style and features.Aug 23, 2021 10:19
Works exactly as advertised. Very happy with purchaseMay 19, 2021 02:25
Already had a Nextbase camera with GPS but thought I'd try this one for the other car because it's cheaper. Nowhere near the quality, features or ease of use than the Nextbase 322GW. Never could get the MPH to show up on the recordings although it would show up on the screen. The latitude & longitude would show up in the recordings but no GPS. Took it back to the store & bought another Nextbase. Cost more but so worth it...May 07, 2021 15:57
Perfect dash cam for my needs! Will get several more for the younger drivers in my familyMar 12, 2021 15:51
The camera is nice and easy to use, however, I had to ask for a replacement immediately upon opening. It makes clicking sounds which are even louder upon playing a recording.Feb 04, 2021 18:40

Most of the features on this unit are helpful. The directions are not. It wants to send me way out of the most direct route. I don't know if that is a Garmin Maps issue or what. It also has a hard time understanding my voice commands.Dec 03, 2021 18:52
The updated graphics on screen are a nice update and the screen being between the 5” and 7” fits just right with thin bezels.
I knocked a star because the button on the back of device is a terrible placement and
the audio that comes across the Bluetooth has a delay.Nov 14, 2021 15:42
Worst GPS unit I've ever used! Maps and programming updated when i plugged it in. I had it set to accept tolls and choose the fastest (not shortest) route from Cambridge, MD to Glen Burnie, MD (67 mi) and it consistently tried to route me through Elkton, MD (144 mi). Once I crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge it finally settled on the correct route, more or less. It still kept trying to send me down local roads instead of major highways. There were no accidents or road closures so it shouldn't have been trying to avoid congestion or back-ups. It did the same thing on the way home. It failed 100% of the time on all 4 legs of a known trip so I certainly wouldn't use it to take me across country. I don't know what the problem is but it's useless to me.Nov 21, 2021 05:10
Have had several Garmin GPS units in my cars over the years. This was an upgrade for my main vehicle when my 6yr old prior Garmin unit finally started to have issues.Nov 17, 2021 17:46
Purchased this newer model Garmin GPS after old one died. Even though there were no reviews out on this model, I assumed the quality would be as good as my prior Garmin. Not a great experience. The battery does not seem to hold a charge even though the unit is plugged into power the whole time it is in use and the screen darkens so is unable to be viewed even though the unit is on and the voice driving commands are working. I am returning it for refund after owning 1 month and being thoroughly frustrated with the unit.Nov 17, 2021 20:10
This is my third Garmin (one lost, one broken). I have used other brands; they cannot compare to Garmin. Easy to use, easy to understand.Nov 18, 2021 17:20
Works good, The software is different than my previous garmin so it's taken alittle to get used to.Nov 22, 2021 18:23
Garmin seems to be working well. Service as Best Buy always good.Nov 19, 2021 17:59
