The Aukey Dash Cam is a great pick for your dashcam needs. It is not only affordable but guarantees you high-quality videos with a super-sharp full 1080P. It has Sony Exmor IM323 sensor that captures great videos and photos with an expanding 170 degrees view allowing you to see the entire road. The videos the DR01 produce are clear enough to back you up in case of any incidents.
The dash cam has a dual-port USB car charger – one for the dash cam and the other for your phone or any other device. It can function in all weather conditions thanks to the internal supercapacitor (instead of battery). The supercapacitor also ensures that this Aukey dash cam can still records an additional 30 minutes in case of power disruption, also ensuring it saves the currently recorded videos.
The camera also shows the date, location and time when a video clip wa recorded. That makes it easy for motorists to back up any legal or insurance claims.
The Aukey Dash Cam DR01 will start recording as soon as you start the vehicle. With its loop recording feature, you will get up to 20 hours of 1080P with a 128GB card.
Aukey DR01 utilizes a Sony IMX 323 Sensor that captures high quality and crispy clear 1080P footage at 30 FPS. It also has the option of taking still photos.
170 degrees wide-angle lens
The super wide field of view helps to capture everything on the road, be it cross traffic, license plates or road signs. You can bet that the dash cam will record everything that’s important.
You can use either a suction mount or 3M adhesive to attach the dash cam to your vehicle’s windshield. The package includes both, so your pick depends on your preference.
The dash cam’s lens is a 6-layer glass which is popular because of its ability to allow more light through the camera even in low lighting conditions. That is why the Aukey dash cam has an outstanding ability to record high quality videos at night.
Optional motion detector
You can choose to turn the motion detector ON or OFF. If you choose the former it will automatically switch the camera on and start recording every time it senses movements in front of your vehicle. That’s a handy feature if you want to keep your vehicle safe when parked.
- Easy and fast installation of the dash camera on windshield.
- Captures sweeping view using its wide angle lens.
- Loop recording allows convenient memory management by overwriting old data if you need space.
- Emergency recording mode records and locks up any incident footage to avoid deletion.
- DR01 is weather resistant
It is definitely not the fanciest of dash cams. You won’t get features like Wi-Fi or lane departure warnings. In some respects that’s actually a good thing because it simplifies the dash cam’s functionality.
The other point of concern is the firmware. Although it works great straight from the box, updating the manufacturer’s software is a bit of a tedious task. You will have to download it to a PC before loading it to the dash cam’s memory card.
Overall, it is an awesome device that will capture unforeseen incidents as you drive.
