Installing a dash cam is a great way to get that extra peace of mind when you’re driving. It doesn’t just offer invaluable footage that can be used to vindicate and perhaps compensate you in case of an accident, it also provides great videos that you can use to reminisce about your fun experiences on the road.
Of course all that depends on how good the dash cam is. If its videos have poor quality, then chances are they will neither provide sufficient proof or capture good memories. That’s why it is important to take your time and look a high quality dash cam.
Speaking of the best, one model that certainly blends high-quality performance with a dashing design is the WheelWitness HD PRO Dash Cam.
Made using the Ambarella A7LA50, one of the best video and photo processors, the dash cam is a light weight gadget that weighs a mere 5 ounces and measures 3.9 by 1.2 by 1.9 inches. It can hang on your windshield without causing any safety concerns. In fact, it does add safety to your driving thanks to its ability to sense when you are getting into another lane. That’s a handy feature when you are cruising on the highway or if you are a bit distracted. It will also give you an alert if the headlights are off when they should be on.
Installs on multiple vehicles
The WheelWitness HD PRO Dash Cam comes as a package containing three mounts and the camera itself. The mounts are actually one suction cup and two sticky mounts, but still you can install each one in a different car to make it three different mounts. Your only job will be fixing the camera in the car you want to use. It will start recording as soon as it gets power (when the car’s ignition comes on).
The auto-record feature fires up the dash cam as soon as the car’s ignition comes on. You don’t need to switch the camera on manually. It will also switch off automatically when the engine goes off. That should save you the time and effort required to start and stop the dash cam by hand every time you get in to drive. Plus it ensures the camera is running every time you are cruising.
Super HD resolution
While most dash comes have a limited resolution of HD and full HD (FHD), the WheelWitness HD PRO takes it a notch higher to super HD. It records videos of up to 1296P or 2k resolution, giving crispy clear footage. There is the option to turn sound recording on or off. That depends on your preference.
Wide viewing angle
Equipped with a 170-degree angle lens, this dash cam is capable of capturing pretty much everything that is within your range of vision, be it the road ahead, signs, or license plates of other vehicles. It also swivels, so you can adjust the angle so that it captures a view that you prefer most.
G-sensor for accident detection
The WheelWitness HD PRO is fitted with a G-sensor that can detect accidents when you are driving and when the car is in parking mode. When activated, this feature saves and locks all the latest footage to help you establish the cause of the accident.
Stunning night vision
The wide dynamic range (WDR) used in the WheelWitness HD PRO does a superb job in compensating bright and dark spots in a shot. That is why the dash cam produces excellent footage at night and during the day.
GPS for geotagging
This dash cam uses its GPS module to show the exact location and speed of your car at any given time. The GPS is compatible with several mapping software, including Google Maps, Opera Street Maps, Maprequest, and Yahoo. Although there’s an option to turn the GPS module off, it’s always wise to leave it on for security purposes.
- Comes with a free 16GB microSD
- 3-inch display screen is large enough for playback or real-time viewing
- Uses loop recording for efficient data storage
- Very easy to install and use
- Fairly affordable since you can install in three cars
The only downside with this dash cam is that if you enable the G-sensor while driving some of the footage might have lower quality. So you may want to turn it off until you park the car.
Minus this one minor instance, overall the Wheelwitness is a very nice dashboard camera that is worth every penny. Its design is great and the features are unmatched in the world of dash cams.
