How does a Dash Cam save the video it records?
Dash Cams save their recordings to a removable memory card, typically a micro SD card which come in sizes up to 256GB. The Dash Cam will record to the memory card until it becomes full when it will begin to overwrite the oldest video recordings with newer video.
To give you an idea of video record length, a Dash Cam recording in 1080p to a 32GB memory card will be able to record for approximately 4 - 5 hours before having to overwrite older recordings.
So what are some features you should keep in mind when purchasing a Dash Cam?
All Dash Cams will do the basic recording and saving functions, what you should consider are the extra features and functions that a Professional Dash Cam supports such as:
Two Way Talk
Have a handsfree conversation with via the Dash Cam with our Professional Dash Cam via the app.
All Dash Cams record the road in front of the car but some come with a rear-facing camera to record in inside of the car, this is called a cabin camera.
A cabin camera is not much use to an everyday Dash Cam user but is invaluable for any ride-share driver who makes use of apps like Uber or Lyft. Having an internal cabin camera heavily discourages antisocial behaviour from passengers and provides protection from fraudulent reports of unprofessional behaviour made against drivers.
Some Dash Cams also offer a secondary camera to be placed at the rear of the vehicle to record the road behind the car but this comes with an increased cost and difficulty of installation.
GPS Tracking & Notifications
Some Dash Cams, like our MDVR-J200 3G/WiFi In-Vehicle Surveillance & GPS Tracking System offer a GPS tracking system which provides the benefit of tracking the current location of the vehicle. This feature when combined with live notifications of a collision detection, can give parents peace of mind that their children are safe on the road.
Where to Purchase
This is primarily down to personal preference, eBay can work well enough but as most sellers on eBay are not "Official Distributors" access to warranty and support is slim to none.
Our range of dash cams, on the other hand, come with a minimum manufacturer warranty of 1 year and have friendly Australia based support staff to help enable advanced features or work out any problems you may have with our products.
