Bestbuy has Rexing – V1P Pro Plus Front and Rear Camera Dash Cam – Black on sale for $139.99.
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 hid… view full review on bestbuy.com
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… view full review on bestbuy.com
– 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/imp… view full review on bestbuy.com
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 (s… view full review on bestbuy.com
