    I have the Rexing V1P right now. I can’t wait to install my V1P+. The quality on the Rexing cameras is honestly the best out of all of the dash camera I’ve owned. The rear caner’s resolution could be better but I’ll live.

    Ease of use, Set up, Video quality

    A co-worker recommended this brand and so that's how I ended up with one. I've had my Rexing for a few months now and I'm very happy with it. The picture quality is excellent. And I found the directions easy to understand. My only issue is the fact that I have long nails and it makes it a bit hard to remove the micro SD card. Due to impatience on my part, I didn't update the firmware until the screen went white a week ago. Once I read the directions, it was easy to do. As well as setting up the date which I hadn't bothered to do either. Overall, I am glad I made this purchase and hope to actually capture something one day beyond the random bunny rabbit running thru my yard when I get home from work.

    The front camera is excellent. The back camera is very grainy. I had mine installed by Geek Squad and it appears to have been done wrong because the rear camera images are flipped when you play the recording (ex. Objects on the right side of field of view as you look out the back of the car are shown on the left side). Rexing Customer Support is non responsive. There are probably better front/rear cameras you can buy for the money.

    Besides the hardwiring its super easy to install in most cars. Be super mindful of where they are placed I suggest looking up a youtube video on how to install. The app isn't good at all dont waste your time. Quality of the front camera is superb it keeps you feeling a bit safer as you drive. Rear for me is okay during the day, I have tint so at night it doesnt see much unless there's alot of light. For its price I think its fair.

    Great Front, Great Audio, BAD rear

    Ease of use, Price, Rear camera

    I had been contemplating buying a dash camera for a long time. I investigate traffic accidents for a living and my job gets a lot easier when I am able to have camera footage of an accident. A camera never sleeps and is always honest. I wish more people had dash cameras. So when I was able to get my hands on this, I was pretty excited. I had this camera sitting in the box for a few days as I was waiting for decent weather to install this camera, but I could have honestly installed this camera in the freezing cold as the install was a breeze. I have a passion for cars and I don't like wires running everywhere. I even hate having a car charger plugged in to a 12v (cigarette lighter) outlet as I think it looks messy. For this reason I opted for the hardwire install. The hardwire install if pretty simple if you have ever worked on a car. It requires a little bit of research and reading of your owners manual, but it provides such a clean installation that I would never go any other way. If you have the hardwire kit, the fuse included in the kit is 15 amps and replaces an existing fuse in your box. Nothing tells you this and I would really like for it to be annotated somewhere on the packaging, but I am telling you that it is 15 amps, so hopefully that saves you some research. All you need to do with this kit is find a 15A mini fuse in your fuse box that controls a car accessory that is only activated when the car is on. Easiest way to achieve this is to check your owner's manual fuse box diagram and see what has a 15A fuse. Once you have a few options and know what is controlled by that circuit, get into your car without putting the key in the ignition and try and activate that accessory. If that accessory turns on without having your key on (i.e. power seats) this is not one you are looking for. If this accessory only activates when the key is on, then it will work. I used the circuit that controlled the rear sun shade in my wife's 2015 Ford Taurus SHO. This is only on when the car is on so it is perfect. Also note that this kit only comes with a full size mini fuse. It will still work with a low profile mini fuse, but may not allow you to replace your fuse panel cover. After identifying my fuse, I decided on mounting the camera to the right of the rear view mirror. This seemed to be the most centralized location that did not obstruct the view of the driver. It does't take up much real estate, but a person in a crosswalk doesn't need much to obstruct them either, so make sure it doesn't impede your view. Both the power source wire and the rear view camera wire are a mile long, but very easy to conceal under the headlined and other interior pieces of the car and took me less than 5 minutes to run both wires with the tool provided. With the exception of the wires immediately connected to the cameras, you would never know that there was an aftermarket item wired to the car. Clean install - Check! After having everything wired, I started the car and checked for function. The camera powered on when I started the car, and powered off 10 seconds after shutting the car off, which is the default setting for this camera. Function - CHECK! Grab the manual and define the settings as you wish. Most of the default settings are pretty good. A 32gb memory card will record 5 hours of driving per the manual. So I figured that I could have the camera loop at 10 minute intervals, instead of the factory chosen 3 minutes. This means that the camera will record 10 minutes of footage intervals until the memory card fills up, then it will start writing over those 10 minute increments as it needs more space. Perfect. Works for me and I can not think of a single instance that this would not work for. I also placed the year and model in the "license plate" field as I thought this would be more relevant than a license plate that could change every couple years. After a successful install, we drove the car around a bit, typical trips to the store, to visit family this weekend, etc. I removed the memory card and placed it into this computer. The files are .mov files and easily played on my desktop or even on my Samsung cell phone, which could be perfect if I needed to show an officer what happened during an accident while at the scene. The front camera and rear camera files are saved separately, which is ok with me. I started by watching the front camera files and WOW. They are crystal clear and the audio is amazing. There is a little bit of "fish eye" at the edges, but nothing that is distorted enough that you can not tell what is going on. My work has cameras in every one of out work vehicles and I think that this front camera is better than the far more expensive equipment that we use at work. Moving on to the rear files...ugh...what a difference. With how clear the front was, I was sorely disappointed with the rear. Grainy and straight out of the 1990s. I understand that this is a VGA connection...but why??? You would get better quality out of dusting off an old VHS and throwing it in the player. The technology is cheap enough and a basic USB connection would suffice. I don't understand the decision on cheaping out on the rear camera. Even though the quality is terrible, it will still be able to show what happened in the event of an accident. Overall, yes I would recommend this product. When installing and using you can tell that there was a lot of thought and time put into the design of this unit and a lot of small things that the designers took into account for an easy install. Having worked on so many cars that left me cursing the engineers that designed it, I can really appreciate the designs implemented here. Even though I would recommend this product, I would still push my friends and family to spend the extra money and get the next step up which has wireless connectivity and a better rear camera. It will simplify everything and be well worth the extra coin spent.

    I bought this camera back on June 2019 and I was so amazed how easy you can install it by yourself only 20 min and you can start recording. The front camera have a very sharp image (like a movie). The back camera I installed inside great for family trips or when you want to know what strangers do in your car when you leave the car with valet parking or at service. I bought a second one for my brother on July and recommended it to a friend.

    Excellent Front Camera; Dismal Rear Camera

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Ease of use, Price, Rear camera
    Cons mentioned:
    Cables, Insurance

    **Summary** The Rexing V1P+ dash cam is a mixed bag combining a superb 1080p front dash cam with a shamefully mediocre VGA rear camera. **Installation** If you’ve never installed a dash cam yourself and feel intimidated, let me reassure you that it is not that difficult. I consider myself an average joe, and it was also my first time installing a dash cam. I gained familiarity and confidence by watching all the installation videos on the rexingusa.com webpage. Then I went onto youtube and watched some more tutorials until I felt comfortable that I could handle the task myself. If you still don’t think you can perform the installation, you can always have the Best Buy geek squad professionally install it for you. Since I have never done it before, I took my time with the installation. It took me around an hour and a half to hook up both the front and rear cameras and hide all the wires around the car trim. **The Good** +Two Options for Installation. The dash cam kit comes with wiring for two types of installations: You can connect the dash cam wiring to your vehicle’s 12V DC power charging outlet or you can hardwire the wires to the vehicle’s fusebox. +Useful Plastic Trim Tool. The dash cam kit also comes with a plastic trim tool to help with opening the gaps in the vehicle’s trim and hiding the wire. I’m glad Rexing included the trim tool because I didn’t have one of these tools in my toolbox. +Wires that keep going and going. The wires for both the front and rear cameras are very long. You won’t have any problem with stringing the rear camera to the back of a long suv or minivan. I had plenty of excess wiring left over. +Wow, That Front Camera. The 1080p front camera has excellent video quality. BOTH daytime and night time images are sharp, clear, colorful and vibrant, and shows plenty of detail. Reviewing the videos on my computer screen, I could clearly read license plates, vehicle makes and models, determine vehicle color, read roadway signage and see signal lights, all of which may be valuable evidence when submitting video to your car insurance company or in cases where there are disputes. **The Shortcomings** -Yikes, That Poor Rear Camera Quality. The rear view camera is VGA 640x480p resolution quality. This resolution may have been fine in the late 80s and 90s, but with today’s video resolution advancements, it shouldn’t have cost that much more for Rexing to provide a 1080p rear view camera for the V1P+ dash cam package. Daytime video is washed out, with very little color, with poor contrast, graininess, and pixelation. It’s difficult to make out any details of vehicles, license plates are nearly illegible, and I couldn’t tell what the vehicles’ colors were. It was nearly like a black and white video. Dusk video is okay, a little worse than daytime video. However, when it is time to use the rear cam at night, that’s when the video becomes unacceptable. Bright headlights will overwhelm the rear video camera, creating what looks like blobs of light over where the vehicle should appear in the video. In background areas like sidewalks and edges of roadways where the lighting isn’t directly shining into the camera, the video appears to be better. The night time video would be inadmissible as evidence to an insurance company since it lacks the crucial details (e.g. you’ll only see the blobs of light from the vehicle that rear ends you and speeds away. No license plate will be captured in the video). I spent all this time hooking up and hiding the wires for the rear cam only to find out that the camera video quality is so pitiful. I want to make a note I made sure the rear camera lens was clean and that my rear windshield was clean both on the inside and outside before I made the above observations with the camera. -The supplied Hardwire Kit is not universal. It will only work in certain vehicles where the fuse box has empty or spare fuse slots. If you have no spare slots in your vehicle’s fuse box, then you’ll need to perform a fuse tap. You will need to purchase a separate hardwire kit for the add-a-circuit/add-on/piggyback fuse tap. Really wish Rexing included the fuse tap hardwiring kit instead of the one that was supplied. A fuse tap is a more universal approach for hardwiring installations. -The V1P camera uses a lithium ion battery instead of a capacitor to power the camera as it is saving the video file in the last moments when you park the car and turn off the ignition. In extremely hot environments, the interior of a car will sizzle. Heat and batteries just don’t mix. Just imagine what the heat is doing to that lithium ion battery. It will swell, leak, and break the internals in the camera. Capacitors on the other hand are not susceptible to such risks. So if you live in an area where it will be hot and you do decide to purchase the V1P+ dash cam, I recommend that you remove the camera from the windshield mount when parking under the hot sweltering sun. It’s a pain to always be doing so, but it will help prolong the life of your camera battery. Otherwise, just purchase a dash cam with a capacitor instead of a battery. **Do I recommend the V1P+ Rexing dash cam?** Yes, but a qualified recommendation. If you plan to use the camera in moderate climates and will not depend on the quality of the VGA rear camera for night time use other than as a novelty item, then this dash cam package will suit your needs, and I say go for it. For the rest of us, including myself who live in a climate where summer days are typically well above 90 degrees F and even reaching above 100 degrees F, and who would prefer to have a very good video rear camera quality as evidence in a vehicle incident to go along with that excellent front dash cam, then I would not recommend this particular offering from Rexing. Instead I would recommend you consider the Rexing V1P PRO dash cam package. It addresses all the aforementioned shortcomings of the V1P+. The PRO package comes with 1080p resolution for both front and rear cams, it has a super capacitor instead of a lithium ion battery for those of us who live in hot climates, and also has internal GPS logging and wifi file transfer as added bonuses. At the time of my review, the V1P PRO package at Best Buy is $50 more expensive than the V1P+, but I think it is worth the money. In fact I’ll be buying the Rexing V1P PRO package for my other car. In the end, I gave the Rexing V1P+ dash cam a total of 4 stars. I had to deduct a star for the poor quality rear camera. I feel that it is important to have good video quality for both cameras. Why short change us on the rear camera?

    Decent Dash Cam for the price

    Ease of use, Price

    I was able to try out the Rexing - V1P Plus Front and Rear Camera Dash Cam. Out of the box you get the main camera and control unit, rear camera attachment, assorted power cables, and install hardware. I installed this on to my 2014 BMW i3 and wasn't too difficult of a job but other cars might be a bit more difficult. The first time powering it up, you'll have to set up the normal date and time if you want to use the time stamp function, this is especially useful when you need to show time and date. My initial impression on the unit were that this was a decent camera. The built in LCD screen it some what useless or from my experience, I couldn't see much. It was enough to kind of get the camera pointed the right way but not rely on it once you have it install UNLESS you have the LCD screeen facing the correct angle to your eyes otherwise it's sort of useless. This dash cam gets the job done

    I feel protected now and covered a dash cam is a must have nowadays drive out here especially in California I don’t have to worry abt anything god forbid I get in an accident I’m covered show the police and my insurance coverage the video and that’s it get my payout for my vehicle no long delays and legal disputes avoids a headache and stress you have to protect yourself and this is it. All the features are great especially once it senses an impact the dash cam automatically locks in your video from the g sensor from an accident and if something light and want to record something simply hit the ok button you are shielded from the front and back and somewhat of the side I feel really safe now having this honestly and best investment for driving I purchased from Bestbuy on the $200 or more $0 apr for 6mos and that also uncluded their $50 professional installation quick and easy hard wired so it’s always on and running and even when ur not at your vehicle any impact to vehicle will start to take pictures ha I love it! Can’t go wrong I highly recommend go for it!

    I have zero experience with dashcams and this was my first. After hours of research I settled on this because Its middle of the road price and good reviews. This camera is a good basic camera. You are not going to be able to read a license plate 15 feet away but it is enough to cover you in case something should happen. The rear camera isn’t anything higher quality than a security camera that you see on a crime show. The app is really slow but it works. Overall I would probably buy a more expensive camera next time to get some higher quality video.

    Great basic dual camera

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Price, Set up, Video quality
    Cons mentioned:
    Angles, View

    Rexing V1P+ DashCam. This dual dash cam is easy to set up and easy to install. The front camera quality is clear but not at highway speeds. Setting at traffic lights and close to other cars you can read license plates, but at highway speeds things just blur together. This is not such a big deal when just trying so catch the action of what happened in an accident. It is obvious who hit who and for the most part it’s good enough. The rear facing camera is low quality and at no point can you read a license plate. The same applies to just having evidence as to who hit who though. This version of the camera comes with a 32 gig SD card, it is not a card meant for dash cams so I would suggest you invest in a better card right away. It also comes with the hard wire power supply. This is a must for those who are going to install it permanently. For those who are just using it plug and play it comes with a portable power supply and wire clips to install so you can move it around. I would not trust the adhesive for the front camera. They have been shown to fall off in about a week. Go down to your local Big Box hardware store and get some 3M VHB Clear double stick adhesive. It is meant for high temps and is UV stable so the sun will not loosen it. Reading the book is a must. It is set up well and informs you of every setting and how to adjust them. This is what makes setup so easy. I am not going to go over all the function because it has a ton. Just read the manual and decide what you are going to use. Once set up, it’s kind of set it and forget it. A 64 Gig high endurance SD card made for dash cams will set you back about $55.00, so that’s a hidden cost. That and the correct windshield tape that about $5.00 are the only real hidden costs. You can start out with the SD card included and the original windshield tape but those will soon fail and you’ll want to replace them. The 64 gig high endurance SD card will record about 10 hours of video. Your time may vary depending on your setting. The camera mount is easy to deal with after an accident. Just unplug the connections and lift the camera off the mount. Your video data is safe for you to view later. You can also use the camera as a viewer but you must be holding it because the viewing angle of the screen is really bad. Since the correct card will hold so much video, if your close to home, maybe only a couple of hours away, you can leave the camera running until you make it home. Just remember the camera will overwrite files as it fills the card. Overall for this price point you can’t go wrong.

    I decide to buy a dash camera after a small incident with a pedestrian. I was looking for a good camera, that does not need extra accessories purchased separately. A camera that will resist Louisiana's heat and humidity. Plus I was looking for a parking mode recording. This one was like a compromise. The only thing I was concern and worried is how to install it and how to connect it to a phone. Today I finally installed it and it was easier than I thought. It was easy to hide the wires. I install the main and the rear camera, but I'm afraid to install the smart hardware kit for parking mode, because the way I understood it has to go with car's electronic system. I will probably have it done by a professional in the near future. So far I like the quality of the video for front camera. The rear is black and white and not such a good quality. Overall you can see what's going on, but you can't really get the license plates, I will try it in a traffic tomorrow on my way to work. The app only works when you are in the car, which is not a big deal for me, but I haven't figure out yet how to save the videos to the phone. So far that will be my rating, it may change to better or worst, but I haven't owned the camera for too long yet, those are just first impressions.

    I just got it today but have to say it is an impressive package. It has the two cameras, a trim pry tool, two mounts and two adhesive pads, a hardwire kit, a very long 12v/cigarette lighter plug. Install is pretty easy to do. I installed it in two vehicles in less than 2 hours. The only reason it took so long is because my BMW has much higher panels with less clearance than my wife's Ford. Video quality is pretty good, definitely good enough for an accident. It's not the best out there but you are also getting a genuine product by purchasing from BB. My ONLY complaint is the WiFi. It is finicky. First one I didn't have any issues but the second one had issues. The only fix is basically reflashing the firmware (very easy from their website, pick V1P). Peace of mind driving with all these Looney Toons out there.

    Rear Camera Plug Difficult for SUVs and Hatchbacks

    Ease of use, Rear camera, Set up
    Cons mentioned:
    Angles, Cables, Gps

    The Rexing V1P Plus is a kit that comes with a lot of extras so you don’t need to buy additional tools. However, it has one major flaw for a DIY installer with an SUV or hatchback: the rear camera has a wire that’s not detachable from the camera itself. For a clean install, you have to fish the wire from the plug end through the tailgate/hatchback grommet. And the problem doing that is the plug has a right angle bend, making it nearly impossible to pass the wire through the grommet, depending on how your car is designed. If you have a sedan, this is not an issue as you won’t be pulling the wire through a grommet. Otherwise, I’d find a dash cam that has a rear camera straight plug, or get an extension wire, or get someone to install it for you. PROs • Front camera is easy to install with the provided tools. If you’re unsure how to do this, lots of videos on the internet will show you how. • Includes hardwire kit if you don’t want to use the cigarette socket. • Includes cable clips for areas where it’s not feasible to tuck the cable into the headliner • Has a 2.4” screen to review the video immediately without downloading or transferring the micro SD card • Includes a 32 GB micro SD card CONs • Rear camera cable is not detachable from the camera itself. And the plug for the rear camera has a right angle joint and that makes it really difficult to thread the cable through the grommet of an SUV tailgate. In my case, the tip of the plug broke off when trying to get it through, so the rear camera is useless to me now, unless I go through the hassle of splicing it to a new plug. If you have an SUV or hatchback, I’d find another camera with an easier to pass-through wire. • The playback screen is at an odd angle such that you can’t view it when mounted on the windshield. I leave the screen turned off while driving since it’s useless anyway. My next dash cam will either have a more usable mounted screen, or none at all which would make it smaller and more discreet. • The front camera uses a stick-on mount without a full swivel (you can rotate the camera lens up and down a bit). That combined with the angle of the screen makes it cumbersome to get a straight horizon video. • No wi-fi • GPS requires an optional accessory. • No 4K video, only 1080p (front) and 480p (rear) • Overall image is a bit too contrasty. During the day, it’s not a problem. But at night, many signs, especially bright ones, get washed out. To be fair, night vision is a weakness of all dash cams. And many, like this one, cannot make out the license plate number when headlights shine straight on to the plates in front of you. Bottom line is this dash cam has some extras, but no GPS built-in, 4K resolution, or wi-fi. If you can get a good price, and you don’t have an SUV or hatchback, and don't mind its size, then it’s worth considering.

    This dashcam kit is pretty good for the price, as you are getting a front and rear camera setup. Installation was alright, but this depends on your car and how you route your wires. I had to remove a good bit of plastic covers in my car to hide the cables well enough, but that's not a ding on this product more on my car. But it's mostly plug it into power, plug in the rear camera, both are easy to do. The camera turns on automatically. The camera quality is ok. Not great, but not awful, it's good enough to capture what's going on and you can pick out license plate numbers, which is good enough for me. The main camera is a lot better in picture quality than the rear, but for the price, I can't complain too much. The biggest issue I have is the wifi connectivity and the app. The signal from this camera is super weak, and having a good bit of wifi signals around will definitely make it a headache to connect to it. Although even when it is isolated, it can still be a huge pain to get connected to it. First connection took 10 minutes, but the second and third time I tried to connect took 30+ minutes. Something I really don't want to do at the side of the road. So if you wan't quick access to your video files, have a laptop with an SD card reader handy. A great plus is the inclusion of an SD card. 32GB of storage included is a great to have at this price point. Overall, it isn't horrible, but it isn't the best option either. But for what you are getting for the price. It isn't bad, especially for those who don't want to spend $200+ for a dashcam.

    This is my first foray into dash cameras, the Rexing V1P Plus Front and Rear Camera Dash Cam is a fairly compact unit with most of the hardware included to permanently mount the cameras. Included is the front facing camera (main unit) and a smaller remote camera that can be placed on the rear of the vehicle. Setup is fairly easy with configurable settings for video resolution, car tag name, time/date, dual recording, overwrite and other items. The screen is serviceable; however, I found no use for it to be on other that when first starting up the vehicle and configuring the unit. The unit powers on automatically when plugged into a lighter outlet if provided switched power when the vehicle is started, if you have a outlet that always supplies power the auto on and off feature will not work. There is also a “shock” sensor which places the video on a directory outside of the normal recording directory which is created on your micro SD card, ensuring that if you are in an accident the video will move to a directory which will not be overwritten. The unit also came with a 32GB micro SD card and SD card adapter. As for recording, the quality is pretty good, both day and night (even though I hadn’t removed the plastic film that protects the lens during shipping). The lens provides a wide range of view, sort of a fisheye lens but less concave and distorted. Colors are represented well and there are configurable settings for video and still resolution capture, sound recording on/off and white balance along with a whole bunch of other settings. Impressed by number and how granular the settings are. This model does not include a GPS sensor, although you can purchase one and plug it into the unit so GPS position is recorded. I did not install the rear camera as it is wired and you will quickly wind up with a “harness” like bundle of wires to attempt to hide (Power, rear camera, GPS sensor) which would become unsightly quickly. Overall this is a pretty good unit, with a lot of capabilities, configurable options and features. Pros: - Good quality video, wide angle/field of view - Built in rechargeable backup battery - Rear camera - Micro SD card and SD card adapter included Cons: - All mounting hardware is for a permanent installation, had to order (at extra cost) a suction cup mount to make this a more portable solution which could be moved from vehicle to vehicle - Wires can become unsightly - Screen is small, but not really needed

    Dash cam - Yes, Rear cam - No

    You gotta love technology. With the craziness on the road these days, anything that helps solidify the truth is welcome. Enter the age of the consumer dash cam. Rexing has a few good offerings, and this one is a decent entry level option. Whenever I open an electronic product, I immediately measure the quality and build of a device. The V1P Plus is well built and feels substantial. The first thing you need to be aware of when purchasing a dash cam is that it will have to be installed. I say that because you will have to run wiring neatly or you will have a cord/cable mess on your hands. It’s not really designed to move from car to car, but to be more of a “permanent” fixture for the vehicle intended. With that in mind, installation for V1P Plus is fairly simple. Running the rear camera wire can be a bit tedious, but that’s to be expected. The best part of installation is that Rexing supplies everything you need to get up and running. Camera quality is a mixed bag. The front cam is great, especially at this price point. Video is clear and it handles motion well, and that’s exactly what you would expect from a camera designed to capture and record constant motion. Of course, 60 fps would be better, but at the V1P Plus’ price point, it more that does the job. The screen is a neat addition that allows you to verify camera reception and take a quick view of the rear. About the rear camera… Not so much. VGA resolution is a slick way of saying, “probably 480”. I’m very disappointed in the resolution decision for the rear camera. In a time where we are moving even wireless security cameras to 4k resolution, Rexing chooses to go backwards to analog TV resolution. The rear camera should have been 720 at the least. Video quality issues at times render the rear cam useless, and that’s sad. The built in G-sensor is a nice touch that I hope to never need – who wants to wreck? All data can be recorded to an SD card, and Rexing even provides a 32GB one for starters. I thought this was a nice touch, keeping the customer from the dreaded “need one more thing” or “I didn’t know I needed this” feeling. If you are looking for a just above entry level dash cam, look no further. I will stress emphasis on “dash”, seeing that the rear cam is not quite up to par.

    This package includes pretty much everything needed to install. It even includes a smooth plastic pry-bar to help lift the headliner to run the wires. You just need to supply your own USB power adapter unless you plan on using the included hard-wire kit. No accidents yet :) so I haven't tested the shock-sensor. For those who want, an optional GPS unit can be connected for speed and location data.

    Camera quality is good and install was okay however it isn’t always easy to navigate the menu buttons and the app most certainly doesn’t work So best bet is if you need the footage to download it from memory card to your computer
