In this article we’ll put the spotlight on the VVCAR 12" Mirror Dash Cam 1296P Backup Camera.
Read our full review below to learn if this is just the right thing for you.
The VVCAR 12" Mirror Dash Cam with GPS can capture crystal clear, high-definition video without driving blind spots. It features a 12-inch high-definition, 1080p touchscreen monitor that lets you easily navigate through the menus and view the recordings.
It records both standard-def videos to a Micro SD card and high-definition videos to an HDMI port, but only when you're recording. This is very useful in daylight and especially during the night. If the screen is black or going to be when you're driving, the video will be saved to the Micro SD card. This is important because you'll be able to turn on the screen when it's time to take it out.
The GPS gives you topographic maps of your trip and the video files, so that you can find exactly where you were. The GPS records at 30 frames per second and records even if the screen is off. This makes your memory card quite large, but it's an important feature for the amount of detail you can get from your videos.
The VVCAR backup camera is easy to install. A couple of quick bolts and your mirror is ready to go. The camera has motion detection, so it won't start recording until it detects a change in your surroundings. That means you can leave it alone and go about your life without worrying about it recording that 30-second clip while you're at the store.
One of my favorite features is the loop recording. It will save the best footage from the last recording to the beginning of the next one. The loop feature is important because it will use the space that might have gone to overwriting with each added minute of video storage.
The dash camera has a long list of features to help you through even the most difficult (and boring) situations. Many times, video will be the only way of proving that someone's rear-ended you and you'll be able to clearly see this. The camera will save videos for both rear and front cameras to the Micro SD card.
The camera has a G-sensor that will automatically detect a sudden shake/collision and lock the footage to prevent it from winding up being a total waste. The camera also features super low-light night vision for perfect vision, even in the dark.
