The Ultra Dash Cam from YI is one of the few in-car dashboard cameras that can record footage with 2.7K resolution. That is two times better than full HD (1080P)! In short, if you prioritize the quality of footage over anything else, then this is the best dash cam for your car.
Having said that, its benefits go beyond just providing crispy clear videos. It’s actually one of most well-designed dash cams in the market today. With dimensions of 7.5 x 4.7 x 2.4 inches, the Ultra Dash Cam conceals perfectly from anyone who is outside the car. Plus it weighs just 8 ounces. That’s a negligible weight that won’t pose any safety risks when mounted to your car’s windshield.
Still on the subject of design, this dash cam is fitted with a 2.7-inch LCD screen that doubles up as a display and a user interface. It is very intuitive and simple to use (has 4 buttons only), making it easy for you to customize the camera’s settings. It also offers an accurate and clear preview of the road ahead.
Obviously when you are driving your attention won’t be on the dash cam’s screen. But you can always view the footage later thanks to its playback capabilities. In fact, you can link the dash cam with your phone using the YI Dash App and watch the videos on your phone instead of the camera’s screen. Talk about connivence.
The Ultra Dash Cam also has an optional lane departure function. You can activate it so that the camera alerts you when you deviate from your lane. Despite its 5-star features, this dash cam is very easy to install. Actually it comes as a full package with instructions (in English) on how to install and use.
The box contains the:
- dashboard camera
- a 16GB SD card
- a 3M sticky mount
- a suction cup mount
- a USB charger
- a micro USB cable
High quality videos, wide field of view
With the current trends, 2.7K is one of the highest resolutions you can get in a dash cam. The Ultra Dash Cam uses H.264 video encoding and records videos with 30 as well as 60 frames per second. That is why its footage is so clear that you’ll capture even the smallest details. Its 140-degree angle of view offers a super-wide view of the road without any distortions.
This dash cam’s exceptional performance is aided by the equally exceptional technology used. It features a dual core chip (A17 + A7), high-speed FPU processor and neon acceleration. Its power consumption is very low, which makes it one of the few models that will have zero impact on your car’s power.
Excellent performance at night
The YI Ultra Dash Cam is fitted with very sensitive light sensors. Together with the f/1.9 aperture, the sensors balance light and dark spots to deliver the clearest footage, even at night.
This is definitely the standout feature of this dash cam. You can execute functions using simple voice commands. This hands-free feature allows you to focus on driving and still have control over the camera.
In case of a collision or accident, the YI Ultra Dash Cam will use its 3-axis gravity sensor to record, store and lock videos of the incident. That includes footage from moment before to after the incident.
The Wi-Fi feature is a welcome addition that will ensure everybody in your car has internet access.
- Free 16GB SD card included in the package
- Very affordable
- Packs so many handy features, including 2.7K footage, G-sensor, and Wi-Fi
- Uses loop recording to store files
- Great quality of videos even in low lighting conditions

It doesn’t use a universal mount. That means you have to use the manufacturer’s mount. It’s good that they provide two options for you to choose one – a sticky mount and suction cup. But once you have the dash cam up and running you will be impressed by what it can do.
With the best resolution, voice command, WiFi capabilities, and no battery power drainage, this is a clear choice for anyone looking for quality and connivence.
