A sleek and sophisticated dashboard camera, the Pruveeo F5 makes a perfect addition to your car thanks to its wide range of capabilities. This easy-to-install camera is Wi-Fi enabled and can record videos in full HD. It’s also compatible with both Android and iOS, making it a very versatile gadget.
The F5 mounts to the windshield, and with a small screen of 1.5 inches, this dash cam stays perfectly concealed from outside the vehicle. It can withstand up to 150 degrees of heat. So if you live in a really hot area where other dash cams can’t survive you have a solution in the F5.
One of the best things about this camera is how easy it is to install. Simply attach the mount on your car’s windshield and then affix the camera. You will only need to run the in-car charging cable to finish the installation.
Once in place, download the firmware from Pruveeo’s official website, copy them in the SD card, put the card in the camera and then switch it on. It will automatically install and upgrade. After that it will be good to go, you can hit the road and witness its unmatched performance.
First of all, the Pruveeo F5 dash cam is an eye-catcher. It is small enough for maximum discretion (3.9 x 1.7 x 1.5 inches), but has a solid body for durability. The tail end features a cover that conceals the cable so that nothing hangs around as you drive.
The dash cam will turn on and start recording automatically as soon as you turn on your car’s engine. When the engine goes off the camera will take a few moments and then witch off too. That’s very important because the auto ON feature ensures that you don’t forget to record your journey while the auto OFF helps save your car’s power.
Up to full HD resolution
Although the default resolution of the F5 is 720P, you can change the settings to 1080P (full HD or FHD) at 30 frames per second. Note that FHD footage is large and will consume a larger amount of space in your SD card. You can also take photos using this dash cam. It delivers an impressive 12MP images (in JPG format). With its wide dynamic range (WDR) technology, the F5 records very clear footage during the day and at night.
Can you just image the pictures of your road trip already?
When enabled, the F5’s motion detector switches that camera on temporarily every time it senses movement in front of the car. That happens when the car is parked, and within the period, it will record and store a video of the incident that triggered the motion detector. Perfect to keep your car safe from vandals and in hit-and-run cases.
You can activate the Wi-Fi mode by pressing the middle button for three seconds. The F5 will link with your phone, making it possible for you to view real-time videos and take photos straight from your phone. There’s an option for saving them on your phone as well. Perhaps more importantly you can change settings and download firmware using the phone. It is compatible with both Android and iOS, so you can use it with pretty much any smartphone or tablet.
