The Use for the Perfect Utility for Dashcam

A dashcam is a high-definition wide-angle camera embedded in a vehicle. This camera is connected to the latter via a cord that will lodge in the cigarette lighter. It is attached to the dashboard or windshield inside the cockpit. It is used to record and record everything that happens during the course of a driver. The digital file can serve as proof in case of incidents. The dashcam is really an ideal witness in all circumstances.

Recording videos

dashcam operation The videos start to be recorded when the vehicle starts (except for dashcam with a “parking” mode, see here ). This startup is done automatically. The dashcam then films all the facts related to the driver course. Nothing escapes this gadget. It has a memory card (SD card or micro SD). The latter is often equipped with a large enough capacity to be able to contain the recording. According to the Dash Camera Reviews this is the best deal.

The operation of a dashcam is very simple, it films continuously in sequence of 10 minutes (duration adjustable depending on the cameras). The first 10 minutes are automatically saved. During the first recording, if there is nothing to report, it is the next 10 minutes to be recorded. This first backup is then deleted leaving room for the next, and so on. The larger the memory card, the more recorded sequences. In this case, the recorded videos will be deleted as and when there is not enough space on the map.

In case of abnormal event suffered by the vehicle (shock or sudden deceleration or other), the recorded video does not self-erase . To delete it, you have to do it manually. This maneuver to be done gives the driver the opportunity to have a proof (in the form of a video file) of what happened. The video is not recorded over other videos either. The loop recording then resumes after this event. This process is possible thanks to the accelerometer.

However, even without an abnormal event, it is possible to manually save a video. Just start recording and stop when it’s over. This video will only be erased manually.

Viewing recorded videos

After recording, it’s time to watch the recorded video (s). For this, there are 3 possible ways to proceed.

Using the USB port Using the memory card Using the HDMI port

The dashcam can be connected directly to the PC with a USB cable. When linked, the data transfer can begin (to keep a digital proof). After this process, it is possible to view the videos on the PC (with software installed). However, it is also not necessary to transfer the videos, they can be read directly.

Wireless connectivity

The operation of some dashcams can be done even in the absence of memory card. These are those with wireless connectivity (bluetooth connectivity more specifically). The smartphone replaces the memory card in this case.

Wireless dashcam

The smartphone allows viewing the recordings through an application installed in it. It is also possible, at any time, to upload them (upload to a site) or share them. Live streaming of videos or streaming is also feasible.
