You get up in the morning get dressed and go to work as usual. You go into your car and take the regular route to work as you have done for years. However, on this day it is different, another car somehow hits your vehicle creating an accident. You don’t have proof of who is at fault. Now, your worries are over as you can use one of the YI Car Dash Cams to take footage anytime you use the car for anything. This camera takes video using a 165 degree wide-angle to reduce blind spots and obtains a full 3 lane of coverage and will show who is at fault if the accident happened in the front of the car. This is good for the police and the insurance company. The camera automatically starts recording when the car is started and shuts off within 10 seconds after the engine is turned off.
As you travel in your car you need to protect yourself as you never can tell when you will need to prove who is at fault in the event of an accident or mishap. The camera works when you turn on the engine. It also has an option to work for up to fifteen minutes using its internal battery when the engine is off. It can take video even if the car is damaged and the engine cannot start.
A nice feature of this camera is its ability to save footage in the event or events leading up to a collision and immediately after the incident for insurance disputes or other purposes. The continuous loop recording will skip these files when the SD card space is filled to preserve them.
Note: When the SD card space is full, the camera overwrites the oldest files so you will never have to worry about running out of space.
It comes with the ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance systems) which tells you when you are moving out of your lane and getting close to the car in front of you. The camera has 1080p with 60fps H.264 video recording for sharp clear pictures.
The unit can also be connected via Wi-Fi to your phone, Android, and tablet with the App. If you need to save any video, you just download it to your phone.
The camera uses a class 10 or better SD card from 8 to 64GB. It records video using a 6G lens.
The high transparent 2.7-inch 16:9 LCD widescreen offers a broader view which enables you to monitor the whole road while driving.
You just place the charger into the cigarette lighter and the cable cord into the slot on the charger and you are ready to go.
The built-in voice feature can be turned off in the settings if it bothers you. The voice feature records only the voices inside the vehicle and not outside.
