The Review

If you care about road and personal safety, the Transcend Drive Pro 520 should be your best travel companion. The dual lens dash cam is well designed to provide protection for car occupants. It comes with a wide field of view at 130 degrees. This field of view produces high-quality images with little distortion. In addition, it has other great features that are well outlined here for your convenience and comfort.

Both the front and rare lenses can be adjusted to take high-quality videos even under poor lighting conditions. You can use it well even in winter when you are on flood lights.

G Sensor and emergency lock files

Easy to share videos

This amazing dash cam comes with a free downloadable DrviePro520 App with wireless connectivity. This App allows you to download, stream, and share recorded videos on Android and iOS devices. This feature can be very helpful if you are reporting an incident to your insurance provider or the police.

One other great feature about the Transcend Drive Pro 520 dash camera is the ability to rotate the lens through 180 degrees. In case you get pulled over by the police, and you wish to record the interactions, the rotation makes is convenient for you. The camera is also more suited for left-hand drive because it swivels on the left-hand side.
