    Rexing V1 Dash Cam - Video Security & Insurance

    |
    Posted .

    For the past several years I have used my dash-mounted GPS, which is equipped with a video dash cam, for road trips, long drives, and on vacations. However, my GPS is not practical to use just for the built-in dash cam feature alone. The majority of my routine driving is around town, to and from job sites, shopping, and for 'everyday' family trips and chores. So, I never really utilized my GPS' built-in dash cam. And, I never thought of the dash cam as a necessary piece of equipment either. Wow, was I mistaken! After receiving a complimentary Rexing V1 DashCam unit in exchange for an honest and comprehensive review I was anxious to compare it to my GPS. I wanted to experience its value for all of my driving scenarios; for every time I got behind the wheel. On my third day of using the Rexing V1, I was totally convinced that it is now a necessary piece of equipment for me every time I drive my car. And, I also discovered the Rexing V1 features, compared to my more expensive GPS with dash cam, were far more superior and practical for everyday use. While picking up my Grand Kids from their bus stop to visit Grandpa's place, the Rexing V1 recorded a red-light-runner at an intersection I was stopped at, and, a truck making an illegal U-turn almost colliding with a car, which was turning right onto the highway. It was then a I realized how valuable this Rexing V1 DashCam is in providing me with video security and insurance. I thought to myself, “Some day soon the major auto manufacturers will build-in dash cams in all cars that do the same work as the Rexing V1 DashCam.” After the second day of using the Rexing V1 I inserted the 128 GB, High Endurance, Class 10, Micro SDXC card into the card reader of my desktop computer. I played back the last two days of video the Rexing unit recorded. The playback was impressive, full HD, 1080p in realistic color and enabled audio too. You can speed up the playback 2x, 4x, or 8x to view what you are looking for. This feature also works in 'reverse'. Additionally, you can 'Lock' videos automatically by pressing the 'OK' button while recording. This prevents the Loop Video Recording from being overwritten when the memory card is full. What's In The Box: * Rexing V1 DashCam – 2.4 Inch LCD Screen with Auto-Rotation. Take note that the Feature Icons on the Borders of the LCD Screen are fixed and do not Auto-Rotate with the Screen's Orientation. Auto-Rotation gives you more options in mounting your Rexing DashCam. * Car Charger – With 12 Feet of Cord, long enough, to 'Tuck-In' and conceal around your Windshield and Dash to eventually reach your 12 V Power Outlet Source. * User Manual – Detailed Operational Set-Up and Use including helpful Pictorial Illustrations. * 3M Adhesive Mount – For Direct Windshield Mounting only. Once mounted you cannot re-position or move your Rexing V1 DashCam. * USB Cable – For Powering Unit or Video Playback directly connected to your computer. * Cable Concealment Tool – Orange Tool to facilitate the concealment of the Power Cable. This tool has a small and large end to aid you in concealing your Power Cable around your windshield and dashboard. * Six Adhesive Cable Fasteners – These Adhesive Cable Fasteners can be used in areas where you cannot effectively conceal your Power Cable, but need it fastened in place. * Thank You Card – By Registering your Rexing V1, you can extend your warranty from 12 months to 18 at their listed website. Significant Features: * Automatic 'ON' and 'OFF' – If your 12 V Power Outlet Source turns 'ON' and 'OFF' when your car is started and, or, turned 'OFF', then your Rexing V1 DashCam will switch 'ON' and 'OFF' automatically and start recording. Woohoo! How Cool is that? * Video Settings – You can select from 1080p, 720p, and 480p resolutions. You can use up to a maximum of 128GB SD card size. Rexing recommends a High Endurance Micro SD card, Class 10, which will provide several years of constant, reliable use of recording and overwriting. I bought my 128 GB, High Endurance Micro SD, Class 10 card from Best Buy because I am now a 'Believer' that this DashCam is my Necessary, Video Insurance. It gives me approximately 21 hours of recording at 1080p resolution, several weeks of driving. * Loop Recording - The 'Default' setting is 3 minutes. I set mine to 10 minutes Loop Recording. Your SD Card will 'Overwrite' when the maximum storage limit is achieved, except for 'Locked Videos' that you enabled and saved. * Default Settings – There are approximately 30 'Default Settings' that you can change if so desired. Since they are listed on this Best Buy website, I am not going to go into detail on each and every one here. But, keep in mind the 'Default Settings' are already optimized for your use. I changed the Loop Recording to 10 minutes; Plate Number; Date and Time to current; Screen Saver to 3 minutes; Anti-Shaking to 'ON'; and Daylight Savings to 'ON'. * Gravity Sensing – If a change in 'G' Forces is identified, like a vehicular accident, the g-sensor will send a signal to the camera to 'Lock' the video file, saving vital video footage. * Simplistic Controls – Super-Easy learning curve to get familiar with all of the controls and features. You gotta' use it to learn it. Rexing engineers designed this DashCam for folks just like me, serious about my own personal and family's safety. Downside: On the fourth day I went out to use my car for a trip to my local bank, I found the 3M Adhesive Mount barely hanging off the windshield while the Rexing V1 mount had fallen to the floorboard of my car. I live in Florida, and, it has been in the upper 90's the past week and that I have used this DashCam. The 3M adhesive fell victim to the relentless heat of the Florida sun. I had doubts about this windshield adhesive mount, based on my past experiences, but went ahead and installed it according to the Rexing recommendations. The Rexing DashCam is very lightweight. But, the mount alone sitting all day in the hot Florida sun, didn't hold up. So, being convinced that the Rexing DashCam was now necessary equipment for me, I went 'on-line' to find other kinds of mounting installations. Rexing features a Suction-Cup, removable mount on their website. I went ahead and ordered one. I already had a similar mount from one of my older GPS units, so I improvised, and, attached the Rexing V1 to my older GPS, Suction-Cup-Mount. It has worked temporarily, for the last 7 days. If you live in a 'hot' climate like a do, I recommend using the Rexing Suction-Cup-Mount over the 3M Adhesive, Windshield Mount. It is very important to have a reliable installation you can count on everyday and under adverse conditions to record the hazards you may encounter. My recordings taken at night were somewhat sketchy in 'Playback' on my desktop computer. However, after adjusting my computer 'Playback' for low light conditions, it was much better. Recommendation: I highly recommend the Rexing V1 DashCam for your own Security and Insurance. I love it and will not drive without it. The Rexing V1 does an outstanding job of recording road-related, hazardous scenarios. I am appreciative of the 'Peace-Of-Mind' and insurance this affordable, amazing DashCam offers me. It also makes me a better driver, knowing that it is recording all of my driving habits and maneuvers on the road. YooHoo! The Rexing V1 DashCam is inexpensive and a 'must-have' for its multitude of features, simple operation, and value. This DashCam provides video proof of any possible accident scenarios and details I may encounter. It makes a great gift for any family member or special friend. I am giving this Rexing V1 DashCam five stars in spite of the adhesive problem I dealt with. Buy one, you won't be disappointed.

    Bad Drivers Beware!

    Bottom Line: The Rexing V1 is a budget friendly dash cam that offers excellent recording quality and a robust set of features. Pros: Easy to install, lightweight, great video and audio recording quality, useful on-device playback screen, available GPS-logger add-on Cons: Button placement could be better; taking still photos is difficult; requires the separate purchase of a class 10 micro-SD card Review: Installation of the V1 is straightforward and fairly easy. The instructions recommend locating the unit right behind the rearview mirror and routing the power cable up into the front lip of the upholstery, down the side trim/weather seal, under the glove box, and into the car power port. This was actually a lot simpler than I thought it would be, especially since the V1 comes with an upholstery tool and cable clips that can be attached to the underside of the glovebox/console. The whole process took about 15 minutes. The V1 requires that it is connected to a power source (it has a battery but it’s only used for saving files after the unit is disconnected from power), In addition to powering the V1, the car adapter has a USB passthrough built into the socket-end, which is really useful if you want to change the settings or review videos while in the car (a USB to micro-USB cable is also included). Design-wise, the V1 is a sleek looking device that you’ll hardly notice if you install it behind your mirror. Despite it’s sleek appearance, the unit houses a 2” screen for video playback, and a series of buttons on the left side and its face. The only minor issue I have with the design is that the unit would be easier to use if some of the buttons on the side and front were flipped. For instance, the microphone mute button is on the face, which is then underneath the unit by the windshield when the camera is installed. It would have been more convenient to locate that button the side instead of, say, the settings button. The V1 automatically turns on/off when your car charging port powers on/off, so there’s not a lot of work involved once you have it installed. Video recording at 1080p looks great, especially in bright sun, and it does a fantastic job of recording audio inside the car (dialogue between my wife and me was crystal clear). I did notice that video quality decreased a bit, particularly driving at higher speeds (55mph) in shadier areas (country back roads with lots of trees). I don’t do a lot of night driving, so I haven’t recorded videos in the dark yet. Still pictures also look really good, and you have the ability to do a digital zoom. There’s a bit of distortion on the sides from the wide angle lens, but it’s not nearly as noticeable as I expected given other wide angle lens products I’ve used. My only real issue is that taking a still picture is pretty difficult. When you turn your car on, the V1 powers on and starts recording. To take a still photo and return to video recording, you need six button presses, which are all on the front of the unit (therefore, bottom near the windshield when installed). First, you have to hit “REC” to stop video recording. Then, you need to hit the ‘camera’ button to switch from video mode to photo mode. Next, you have to hit “OK” to take the still photo. To start recording, you need to press ‘camera’ twice (the first press switches to playback mode, the second back to video recording) and then “REC” to resume recording. It would have been really great if you could take a still shot while recording by hitting a button on the side of the unit.

    Very good camera, but adhesive mounting failed.

    |
    Posted .

    The Rexing V1 is a very good dash camera that has very good recording quality and user friendly features. However, I was all set to give it 5 stars when I looked out the window of my office and saw it dangling from the charging cable as the adhesive mount had failed in the heat. The camera itself is easy enough to install, is lightweight, and has and available GPS logger that you can purchase. Viewing angle is very wide so you can see a lot of things that happen on the periphery. Night time video is decent quality, i.e. you can see enough detail if you need the video for legal purposes. Installation was easy, with the adhesive (except that has failed, so I'm looking for an alternative mounting solution), and routing the power cord under the headliner, down the a-pillar, and under the glove box. They thoughtfully included a trim panel tool that makes it easy to do without damaging your car's interior. The power cable also includes a USB pass-through that you can use to power the camera if you want to view videos and possibly use to charge your phone if needed, which seems to work well. The buttons aren't really that accessible when you're driving, especially if you mount it behind the rear view mirror, but if you're driving, you probably shouldn't distract yourself with the camera controls. It does have a button to take a still photo which is a nice addition. The camera is mounted to the windshield (which as noted before, has failed), but with this option, the camera is barely noticeable from outside the vehicle. Hopefully I can find an alternative mounting solution that will still be as hidden. Pros Wide viewing angle Clear videos Decent night time video Low profile mounting is pretty concealed from outside. 2.4" screen for playback Cons Doesn't come with memory card, but that's a fairly inexpensive add on, and it supports up to 128GB cards. Doesn't have GPS logging if you need that. Windshield adhesive tape didn't hold up in heat

    Simple, unique camera

    You can never be too careful these days when you are on the road. People sort of have their own agendas and many times they don’t even pay attention to the world around them. With those drivers in mind, it becomes more and more important to protect yourself with devices like dash cameras. I’ve had the fortunate experience of being able to test out several different types of cameras and most recently, I’ve tried the Rexing DashCam V1. The Rexing DashCam V1 arrives in a colorful, but somewhat generic package. It’s well-labeled with the ‘Rexing’ brand name stamped on it. Some very basic details are listed on the outside wrap of the box and it comes with a 12ft car charger, 3M adhesive mount, USB cable, and a user manual. When you open the box, you will find the camera assembly wrapped with some protective foam and then all the remaining accessories beneath a layer of cardboard. I have to admit that I was a bit perplexed by the DashCam V1 because of its shape. It’s unlike anything I’ve used before and it’s mounting method is out of the ordinary. It is meant to be mounted to your windshield with adhesive instead of a suction cup. The set-up of it pretty easy despite it being different than others I’ve used. Once you have selected the location for the DashCam, you can place it using the mount and provided adhesive strips. It sticks easily and well on glass and even though I haven’t had it very long, I believe it will last for a while there because the camera is very lightweight. When you plug it into your car’s power outlet, the camera automatically powers on. If you don’t have an SD Card inserted, you will get a warning on the screen letting you know that you need one. There are knobs on the sides of the camera that allow you to move it up and down to cover different angles. The knobs are a little stiff to move, but they do work. The camera uses Mini USB, which is a little outdated in my opinion. I feel like it should at least be Micro USB if not something else. I do like that it’s an extra long 12-foot cable because it makes it easy to mount/route the cable and camera. The camera does have a rechargeable battery built-in, but it’s primarily used to save files in the event of an emergency. The buttons are also very tactile and there is a definite ‘click’ when you press them. The hardware part of the camera seems to be quite stout and I personally think it will last daily use quite well. Even though this camera has an easy set up and unique design, there are a few things I am not a big fan of like the angle of the screen. The video quality is pretty good. It’s clear and records easily. This unique little camera gets the job done easily and efficiently.

    Decent camera, easy to mount.

    It does seem like these days no one would believe you unless you can show a video. That's why having a dash camera is becoming a necessity. Rexing dash camera comes with an easy adhesive pad mounting system which is super easy to use - just wipe inside of a windshield with a rubbing alcohol, attach camera to the mounting pad, place adhesive pad on the mount and then just stick camera where you want it! I prefer to mount mine a bit behind a rearview mirror so it's not distracting me while driving. Please make sure to mount the camera so the lens is behind an area that is reached by a windshield wiper! Routing a power wire might be a little challenging, but Rexing does include a plastic prying tool with a camera that might help you with the job, it took me about 45 minutes to route the power wire to the central console of a car where I have an AUX 12V plug. Note that camera adapter does have a little USB charging port directly on a plug so that 12V outlet that you plug your camera into is still available for USB charging. Camera does make a little sound when it powers on or off and that helps to assure you that camera did power up and is actually recording. Speaking of recording - make sure that you purchase a High Endurance SD card (maximum I've seen was 64Gb for the High Endurance kind) since you really want that video to be there when you need it. You don't want your SD card just to die at the moment you need it the most. Camera has a pretty decent video sensor and does record in 1080p 60Hz, however since it's a wide angle camera - image is not that crystal clear that you might want it to be. If you are looking for a crisp recording - you may need to upgrade to a 4K camera instead. Look at the pictures attached. Low light vision is pretty decent, details of objects around your car are visible just fine. Camera does record sound as well (it's an option available in settings) and has a port for optional GPS module. There are setting for video quality (maximum quality is the default), but you pretty much good without adjusting anything at all, just plug the power in. Camera does have an internal battery that could power it for up to 15 minutes, but it's designed mostly for emergencies (to record the last moments when car power may go out). Overall - it's a solid choice that will last for a long time, cheap protection in case of an accident and worth spending the money. Video quality - I expected it to do a little bit better, therefore - solid 4 star rating.

    The Rexing DashCam was very easy to install and even easier to download the video clips. The picture quality is excellent and it really couldn't be easier to use. It is set to automatically come on every time I turn the car on. There is nothing I need to fidget with to turn it on or off. It's a set it and forget it! Until you need it... The camera is small enough to fit behind my mirror - I literally don't even notice it is there. The videos are wide angle and excellent resolution. There is no shaking and it picks up everything I would want it too. Sometimes a little too much...I have learned that I talk to myself in the car! LOL Great product and would highly recommend!

    Great camera, horrible adhesive...

    The camera works great, tools were included that help you pop panels off your interior so you can hide the cable. You can modify an assortment of settings on the device to your liking including video quality. Getting video off is also easy, you can take camera inside and plug it into computer with the USB cable provided or you can just remove the SD card and put that into your computer. The adhesive failed within 4 hours of being in the hot sun in Michigan. I managed to get it off my windshield while it was still hot and I replaced it with heavy duty gorilla tape which has had no problems. Only complaint on the product, the rest was fantastic.

    good dash cam for if on tight budget

    Posted .

    bought 3 of these after my daughter was involved in an accident after work and other party lied to avoid ticket. first the pros. camera is affordably priced for those not looking to spend a fortune to protect themselves from dishonest people. the camera is easy to install, took about an 1 1/2 hr for all three vehicles including hiding all wires. initial setup is pretty straight forward as far as settings. picture quality is good, its not the best video possible but not horrible either, good quality as far as making out vehicles in front of you and passing. does what it supposed too. now the cons. the periphial vision of the camera is non existant but in no way a deal breaker just the limitation of the camera. the adhesive mount is less than subpar, it comes with an adhesive mount but all three mounts failed within 24 hrs and all 3 were dangling in the morning. the adhesive actually separated in half, half on window and the other half on the camera mount. after reading the reviews of other people I didn't have high hopes on the mount and feelings were justified, this issue does need to be addressed by rexing. one of the 3 units I bought got so hot it started melting the plastic on the back of the camera, I work with electronics so I know you sometimes get a bad one, best buy promptly exchanged for another with no hassle. in my opinion camera does what supposed too, if your looking to protect yourself without spending a lot of money this camera will more than suffice. I would go ahead and breakdown and buy the suction cup mount when you buy the camera and bypass the adhesive mount all together

    Well designed package

    Posted .

    After researching multiple dash cams, I decided on the Rexing V1. Everything that is needed for installation is included in the package. It also came with a plastic tool for inserting the wiring around the windshield or along the body of the car. Unlike many others cameras, it has a well written user guide which is easy to follow. I particularly like the method the camera uses for mounting. No ugly suction cup on the windshield. When finished, it's very stealthy.... not easily seen from the outside.

    Great Video quality, easy to use

    |
    Posted .

    I received this dash cam at no cost for an honest review. The camera quality is great. You can set it to 720p or 1080p. If you set 1080P, you can get a little over 5hrs of continuous recording on a 32 gig mem card, and 10 hrs if you set 720P. You can use larger or smaller cards, up to 128 gig which will get you 21hrs and 39hrs at 1080 and 720 respectively. As far as daytime quality, it is great. I was able to get a wide angle view (170 degrees) and I could get detail such as license plate from about 2 or 3 car lengths. One thing that impressed me was the sound quality. The sound is crisp clear, even when I listened to loud music. It wasn't distorted. You could hear my blinker very clear, a sound which could come in handy if you ever need proof that you did have it on before making a turn. One drawback is that if you get any of your dash, it will create a glare against your windshield. It is not a major factor, but it's there. Because I have a large windshield, I had to put it near the top and the problem is that the camera can tilt down well, but not up much. The design of the camera against the windshield makes it so that it views essentially almost at the angle of the windshield, so you need to put it high. If the camera lens was designed a bit away from window, it would eliminate the dashboard glare problem. Talking about glare, it also appears at night. The camera has no "night' mode or IR or anything, but it does capture decent video at night. The only thing is that it only sees what your lights are illuminating when it's dark-- what I mean by this is that the peripheral vision of the camera is not very good at night. On open, lit up roads, the camera does better and will capture good detail, though I was not able to get license plates even at 2 cars away. The camera was clear, but for some reason, maybe glare, reflection or lighting, it was not legible at night. (CAVEAT, Camera was on auto mode and not manual settings for this test) The camera comes with the ability to plug to a GPS logger to track where stuff happened (not included). The camera has a built-in g-sensor so that if it detects a sudden stop, the clip it records will not be overridden by the camera. It creates a folder within the memory card and keeps it safe until you download it to your device or pc. Last but not least, the camera is rated to work between 10 and 140 deg farenheit, which is nice because if you live in hot climate, cars can easily get to baking temps. The limiting factor will really be the quality of your memory card, so if you value your recordings in very hot/cold temps, get one that is durable. Overall, I do like the camera and would recommend it because it does as advertised and the daytime video quality and sound quality are very nice.

    Decent starter dashcam

    Posted .

    This has been my first device in the dashcam world. Some of the things that I like about this cam are: - It comes with a 12+6 months warranty - Decent video quality with Sony sensor - Smooth video quality Some of the things which are missing/not that great: - No Wi-Fi to download interesting clips to your phone directly - Poor stick mount (mine fell down in 80 degrees heat) - Can't read number plates of moving cars - Dash reflection in video (an adjustable polarizer would have helped) - Battery (instead of capacitor) might be problematic in hot climate This edition is bestbuy exclusive, it came with the camera, charging cable, a tool for tucking in cable and adhesive stick mount. Note that it doesn't come with any memory card. I bought a 32GB Sandisk high endurance card to go along with it. In general, I found this camera to be just OK because of missing features mentioned above.

    Excellent dashcam, easy to setup, clear video

    Posted .

    Rexing V1 dash cam The Rexing V1 dash cam is a basic dash cam that has many of the features of the more expensive dash cams do, record video at HD, g-sensor to detect impact (and preserve videos when that happens), auto on and off and more. Before we get into that, lets walk through the basics. Included with the camera are: (long) power cable, mounting clip and double sided tape, several smaller clips (probably for the power cable). I noticed they use the older USB mini type ports to connect the power, instead of the USB micro that you find in most devices these days. The camera itself seems decent in terms of quality and feel. The plastic housing has a soft texture to it, but not quite rubberized feel. The camera is very lightweight, that and the loud clicking buttons make it feel a bit on the cheap side. Installation was simple, find a spot where you want to mount the camera, clean it with alcohol, peel and stick the double sided tape. Once mounted, you have to route the power cable to the cigarette plug. I installed mine on an Odyssey minivan, the cable was long enough to router from the top of the windshield, around the passenger side trim and to the floor area. The power cable also has a handy pass through USB port so you can still charge your phone while it’s in use. This is great for me because my car only has 1 cigarette port and no extra USB ports. With this setup, the camera turns on when the car is on and turns off when the car is off (other cars may vary). So it’s great to capture events while you’re driving. But it won’t work to say, capture vandalism while you’re parked. There are ways to keep your camera on when the car is parked, such as battery packs and programmable wiring hardnesses where the camera will continued to be powered and cut off at a certain level so your car battery won’t die. Note: if you’re looking add a rear cam, it seems that this particular camera does not support a rear cam, although there is a port on the camera, the instruction manual notes “Rear Camera Port(V1 Not Support)”. With the built in LCD screen, you can easily review your videos on the screen. Playing the video on my MacBook, the video quality (at 1080) is clear and smooth. Overall, this is a very good camera at a reasonable price. If you’re looking for a camera that’s easy to setup and use and wont break the bank, take a look at this Rexing V1.

    Straight forward design. You can figure out how to use it without the manual. Easy menu and simple. Looks ready to use out of the box. Just set up Time and and you plate numbers if you want. Only complaint would be the white balance on the screen is a little cool(blue) .

    Nice basic dashcam with a couple of drawbacks

    |
    Posted .

    The idea of a dash cam is great, though they haven't quite taken off here the way they have in other countries (where insurance fraud runs rampant). The most-important reason to have one by far is in case of an accident or if needed for witnessed accidents. People can argue how something happened, but nobody can argue with what they see with their own eyes. As far as entry-level dash cams go this one works very well. I enjoyed using it overall, but there are some features I find myself wanting enough to know I'll likely end up going with a more advanced model: Good: --light weight--this unit is very light, but still easy to see and reach controls with the design --mounting guides to help hide the wires during installation --picture is nice and clear in most situations, even at night --has impact detection and a few other convenient settings --you can save specific recording periods without the new recordings overwriting them Not as good: --there is no on-board memory, and there is no memory card included. Not a major investment as even the micro sdx memory cards required are found pretty cheap these days. Still, even a little on board memory would have been nice. --only a power port (cigarette lighter hole for you old folks out there) option for charging--USB cable adapter would have to be purchased separately --adhesive mount doesn't hold up under hot conditions--you'll definitely want a better mounting system if you live in a hot area. --no wi-fi or bluetooth (which would be super convenient for simply saving recordings to your phone--as it is on this model you have to remove the card from the unit, then transfer it onto your phone manually) This is a great basic model if you're trying to get a dash cam on a budget (and the buying recommendation is for people that fall into this category) , but if you find yourself wanting the features I mentioned and don't mind spending a little more I recommend looking to one of Rexing's more advanced models

    Everyone should have one!

    Wow, I'm really impressed with this dash cam. First off, installation could not be easier...just find a suitable spot on your windshield and use the 3M double-sided adhesive for the mount. Then you can slide the actual dash cam on/off easily. You want to make sure to mount in a place where it will not distract you but that you can reach the buttons in case you need to disable recording or save a recording in case of an emergency. Once it's installed and plugged in to your cigarette lighter it should turn on when you start your car (provided your car only provides power to cigarette lighter when it's started.) A red blinking circle on the dash cam screen will let you know that it is recording. It'll keep recording in 3, 5, or 10 minute loops, erasing older clips as needed. If you need to save a video you simply press the Ok button to lock it and the system will not delete it. A 64gb card will store about 11 hours of footage at 1080p. You can review videos right on the dash cam itself but the display quality of the LCD is not that high of resolution. This doesn't bother me cause most of the time the LCD will be off. The video quality when you view on your computer is excellent, even at night. Highly impressed by the footage this provides. I do recommend buying the hard wire kit and having it professionally installed so you don't have the cigarette lighter cord hanging from the top of your windshield. Rexing does sell extra mounts on Best Buy as well so you can move it from vehicle to vehicle. Pros: Easy to install Turns off/on automatically Adjustable Lens Discreet Microphone Gravity Sensor microSD up to 128gb Time-lapse Mode GPS optional Hard-wire kit compatible Cons: None In my opinion, for a $100 this should be in everyone's car. Think of it as extra insurance protection if you need to prove the other guy is at fault in an accident. It could also prove valuable in an accident that happens in front of you and you are a witness. Overall, highly recommended, I'm going to buy another one for my wife's vehicle.

    Good dashcam for the price

    In the interest of transparency, I'm writing this review because Rexing offered me a $10 rebate for an honest review. They didn't specify that it had to be a good review, they said honest. So here goes. I've had this camera maybe a week now, and for the price it takes excellent quality video. I pulled the SD card (sold separately, I'd recommend at least a 64GB if you're serious about it) after my first full day of driving and replayed the videos and the quality was far above what I expected for a $99 camera. The menus and buttons are fairly self explanatory although the manual does an okay job of explaining the functionality. There could be some improvements on documentation, but ultimately you'll get the hang of it. The functionality of the camera is fairly simple, it'll take videos of a length selected by the user (3,5,10 mins) and save them to the SD card continuously until it runs out of room, and then start overwriting the older videos. The recording automatically starts when the camera gets 12V supply from the hardwire kit/power point plug, when you start your car. If you click the "OK" button it will lock the current segment from being overwritten and move it to a read only folder, which is handy in the event that you witness an accident/have an accident/etc. It also has a G sensor, which I haven't tested yet (thankfully), that should automatically lock the segment if it detects a G force (an accident). It comes with a little plastic spudger/crowbar thing for routing the wires around your trim, which worked out really well in my '08 4Runner, and the power cable is sufficiently long for my purposes (and I definitely installed it the long way around). The negatives so far: The camera sometimes will show a white screen on startup. It's still recording, but the LCD is just showing a white screen. It seems to only happen when its pretty cold and doesn't affect its ability to record, but it is a little irritating to have to power off/on if you want to see what it's recording. The adhesive tape style mount that it comes with for mounting on the windshield is heat sensitive and in the Florida environment here, has unstuck a bit and tried to fall off. It will probably eventually fail if you live in Florida/Arizona, anywhere with a lot of sun. There is a suction cup mount available for this (not sure if made by Rexing). It would be nice if it had a battery that lasted longer than a few minutes, but it's a lower-end camera and the manual states it only has a battery for emergency purposes so it's not like you go into it not knowing. Overall, for $99 I can't complain, it does what I wanted. It records what's in front of my car in high quality video and stores about 10 hours worth I'd guess with a 64GB card. It doesn't take up much space on the windshield, as I mounted it behind the mirror and dropped the wire down to it from the headliner. A good camera for a beginner, and I would consider Rexing if I decide to move up to a higher quality camera with front/rear, etc.

    Good value for the price

    The Rexing V1 dash cam delivers great video at a reasonable price. The first thing I noticed was the build quality when unboxing the cam. The dash cam felt very light, almost ‘cheap’, fortunately this isn’t an indication of the camera’s performance. The wide angle image is clear and colorful during the day and pretty good at night. I would of liked to see video stabilization but overall I think the image quality is good enough for most. Setup was easy. Practically plug and play, with navigating the menus being the hardest part. The provided car adapter was long enough to tuck into the molding and the V1 was easily positioned thanks to the built in display. The display itself isn’t great, but you probably won’t be watching yourself drive on it any way. The cam can automatically turn on and off based on power provided, making sure it is recording when it should. While on, it records continuously in loops of 3, 5, or 10 minutes. The clips can then be transferred off an SD card (not included). I found the clips to use 100MB per minute of recording so take that into consideration when choosing the size of an SD card. The V1 overlays the video with the date/time and you can add your license plate number if you choose. The cam also features a G-shock sensor to ‘protect’ video it determines may have been related to any accidents. This is to prevent deletion when it runs out of storage space but SD cards are cheap enough where you can get a larger card to mitigate this as well. TL;DR: Affordable, good video quality, east to setup. For the price, it does what it is suppose to do and I would recommend this for anyone wanting to invest in a dash cam.

    Fun and easy

    Basic set up was easy and took me about 10 min to figure out the controls. I was a little concerned about the need to route the cord from the device to a power port as the batteries are designed to keep the thing running for just a few min incase of an accident or other unexpected power failure. However I found routing the wire around the windshield to be quite straight forward. I did note that this requires a power port which was fine for my 2015 car. I have noticed that newer cars sometimes have only USB ports which would force you to purchase a cable separately. I have enjoyed using this during road trips and am happy to have it for security should that become necessary.

    Very easy installation. Owners manual very easy to follow. The picture and video is great. I can read license plates in front and in the lanes directly to the left and right of me. Going to be a money/insurance saver if someone claims you ran a stop sign or red light. Will work great for protecting yourself against insurance claims. So far it's 5 stars...

    SURPRISINGLY DECENT; SURPRISINGLY RELIABLE

    I had tried many of these in the past, only to find myself frustrated and returning them after a day or two. This one is different. I was able to put in the microSD card, power it up (they give you a home charger cable and a car charger as well that are both USB, not micro usb plugged) do some basic menu programming and it was good to go. I placed it in my kitchen to watch it work, then moved it to the car. The car install package is very nice, they give you the decent double sticky tape but the unit can be slid off the mounting plate and brought inside. They also include tiny wire clips that you can double sticky to the moulding or whatever, so the wires stay put. The unit has a small battery, used only to finish a recording segment and shut down the unit to prevent any recording errors. This seems to work like a charm. The unit also turns on and off automatically as the car is turned on and off, just be sure your cig lighter turns off when the car is turned off to prevent using up your car's battery. Video quality is decent, day and night. It does not have a GPS unit, so no speed or location data is present, but that can be something you may not really want anyway if you were going 56 MPH in a 55 MPH zone. This will however prove that someone did something wrong, not you. In fact just today I was following a truck that tossed out a beer bottle from their window and it was clearly documented on the video. For a somewhat easy to use, but extremely reliable unit, this would be a good choice. It is a good price point, is well designed, and seems a lot more sturdy than anything else I've ever tried. Just start your car, and it starts recording. When you shut off your car, it shuts off too. After many times of doing this the unit keeps running and is good to have if anything ever goes wrong during your drives. Maybe you'll end up being that person that inadvertently records something that is outrageous or odd, that you'll become a viral video sensation.
