    Made better for Androids so far.

    Posted .

    TL:DR Pros - Voice Command works nicely - 3-channel Cameras provide greater coverage - Installation was fairly easy, just tedious running wires - 4k Resolution on front camera Cons - No option for choosing video loop size - No angle mobility for inside camera or camera as a whole - Limited settings and explanation. - Playback/Preview issues with video on Iphone - iPhone App is sluggish and unresponsive, Android works well I’ve owned about 3 dash cam’s before this one, all which have been pretty good and done the job. One thing that the others never provided was rear camera support which is what caught my eye with this one. Some dash cam’s have a second, rear facing camera attached to the front camera, but it doesn’t really give you a good view behind your vehicle. This one provides all 3 cameras. I bought my first Rexing product about 2 months ago, a phone holder for my vehicle. Its exceeded my expectations and out-performed other top-rated products. That really gave them a leg up with this new product when looking to upgrade, so I was eager to see what else they could offer. Installation Installation was pretty straight-forward. The instructions were limited, but at the same time you are just mounting and running cables really. I’d say I spent about 45 minutes total with the installation. I drive a medium size truck and the cables were plenty long enough to go from the front to the back of the vehicle. One thing that seemed cheap were the little sticky tabs that hold/clip the wire and you can stick to along the bottom of the windshield. The stickiness didn’t hold and the plastic tab that holds the wire is cheap and bends easy, but the 3M sticky pad for the camera mounts was solid. Also, when mounting the camera, there is no option to move or angle the front or inside camera. You can only slide the camera on and off the mount. If you need to move it to catch another angle for something, its not possible without removing it from the mount. The same with the indoor camera, so make sure before applying the mount to the windshield, you have the perfect angle. The rear camera however does allow you to rotate the camera up and down, so not sure why there was no flexibility with the front cameras. Operations One of the nicer features of this camera is the voice command. It works well, simple to use, and commands are fairly easy to memorize. They give you a card which I’ve been keeping in my truck until I get the commands memorized. It picks up on the commands well and reacts pretty quick with an audible confirmation. I have to repeat myself sometimes, but overall I really like it. Settings seem pretty limited. No custom video quality settings for each camera, no option for selecting loop size. Its pretty bare currently, this could change in future software updates. Display So far from my experience, the display is okay. You can pick between showing the front camera, the back camera, or all 3 cameras. The inside camera doesn’t show by itself, only when all 3 cameras are selected does it appear. Not sure if anyone would want that feature, but just in case they were. The inside camera has a weird hue to it on mine, it looks to have a purple type of night vision as you can see in the picture which might affect it during the day, but the front and rear camera look fine on the display. I don’t recall seeing the “hue” when I first started using it. You can see it in my attached picture. Also a slight annoyance but not a big deal, the arrows and symbols on the camera referencing the buttons on the bottom don’t quite line up or its maybe designed to be firmly placed to the left of the buttons its assigned to (see picture). Playback/Preview Ok this is the biggest issue I’ve had so far. I have been able to connect my iPhone 11 to the camera via Wifi but cannot play/preview any of the videos. Operations are slow and when I try to hit play, it attempts, then just doesn’t do anything. You can still connect the camera to a computer to download the files directly via memory card adapter or connecting the camera directly with USB which I haven’t tried. This is kind of a big deal and hoping its easily fixed with a software/firmware update. The previews do show GPS speed, coordinates, time, and date which is nice. When I voice command the photo function, it takes a picture of all 3 cameras which is nice. I don’t want to have to complicate the voice commands with specific cameras. I was able to access the pictures without issues on my iPhone, but again the interior camera looks a bit messed up with the color. There’s also a Movie Mode in the settings menu of the camera itself. There is no explanation of these: 4k 30FPS, 4K+Pull 1080P, 4k+Ins 1080P. Not sure if this was for all cameras or the main one. Update: I tried accessing the camera from an Android phone, the app and video playback worked very well. So many of my problems were related to the iphone app. Conclusion Overall the camera seems to have a lot of potential, but its almost like the camera was rushed to hit the market. The app struggles and lags big time on my iPhone while videos don’t playback, and more thought could have been put into the installation and user experience. It does have some good qualities though such as voice command and have a thorough coverage of your surroundings. I gave this product 4 stars instead of 3 because of the Android success I had with it. I’m sure with time, it will become a better device with updates.

    Solid 3 Camera System

    |
    Posted .

    I was recently rear ended and thankfully the other driver took responsibility right away, but I realize this is not always the case and video evidence is cheap insurance compared to my deductible. This is a solid 3 camera system, which gives you that important back view and uses GPS to show location and speed (important info to have in an accident). After initial setup, it works well with little upkeep. My only issues are the mount design (fixable - see below) and the interior camera color (annoying, but ignorable). Pros - Includes 3 cameras allowing you to record your front, rear and interior - Records audio, GPS position and speed on each video clip - Voice control to activate key features - it worked well for me if you limit interior noise and speak clearly. Even repeating a command now and then beats clicking thru menus! - Good day time image quality for from and rear cameras - Starts recording as soon as the car is started and overwrites old recording based on memory space - Built in screen is big enough to display all 3 camera views and it also has a speaker to allow you to watch recorded clips (in a pinch) - Kit includes a 32GB micro SD card with adapter, small trim tool, wire clips and additional adhesive pads - Cables for the cigarette lighter power adapter (12ft) and rear camera (20ft) are long and should work for most vehicles - All cameras are adjustable to allow some mounting flexibility - Videos can be viewed and download from a phone with the Rexing Connect app and the SD card is easy to remove to view them on a computer. Things to Consider - Best Buy indicated that my vehicle was compatible with the camera, but the included adhesive mount did not work for my Jeep due to the angle of the windshield. The mount is at a fixed angle and my windshield was too flat, meaning the screen and interior camera would be pointed at the ceiling. This would probably be an issue for some trucks, vans and commercial vehicles. This delayed my install a few days, but thankfully Rexing makes an affordable suction cup mount which allows you to adjust the angle and reposition as needed. - My interior camera is sharp, but the colors are way off. Everything has a purple tint and this appears to be a pretty common issue. It still does the job, but it could be better. - The Rexing Connect app requires a direct Wi-Fi connection to the camera to work – meaning there are a few extra step to get it to work each time you use it, but it worked great for me once I figured it out. Steps: Turn Camera Wi-Fi on (voice commands make this easy), disable cellular data, go to your phone’s Wi-Fi settings and select the camera’s hot spot, open the app and connect. The camera Wi-Fi turns off automatically the next power cycle (just remember to turn you cell data back on). - The parking monitor feature requires a separate hardwire kit, which looks to be a good value. I will probably purchase this in the future to clean up the install a bit, but I wanted to make sure everything worked first. - My Jeep proved to be a challenge when mounting the rear camera. The rear camera uses an adhesive pad to stick to your back glass, but that did not work for my soft top since the window is plastic and removable. I mounted it to the center roll bar for now using zip-ties and it works great. I might look at a permanent mount in the future.

    It’s not ok to be JUST OK at this price

    Dash cams are fantastic on keeping people honest. This does have 3 cameras but there is a caveat if you want 4k recordings. Pros: • Comes with everything you need to get started • Fantastic rear camera resolution • Voice commands is responsive Cons: • Menu and graphic user interface are from the 90s • Manual is lack luster on menu options • Can’t download vids straight to your phone • Only adhesive mount in the box • No built in battery • Interior camera doesn’t articulate I will break down my review in key categories. Setup: It comes with everything you need to get started including memory card. The instructions are horrible. It took me 2 hours to install all the cameras and to tuck all the wiring into the car’s trim pieces for a clean install. Do note that there isn’t a suction cup mount in the box. Only 3M foam tape. They do offer a suction cup mount but only as a separate purchase. The wiring for the rear camera is just long enough for my car. Running the rear camera in an SUV might be a challenge as I feel like it could use another 5ft or more in cable. Camera and recordings: Having 3 cameras is a fairly new concept as 2 camera setups have been around forever. The interior camera is great if you’re doing ride share or would like to document the interior cabin. The interior camera does have night vision but the failure to articulate the lens is the biggest disappointment. The recommended mounting location of the dashcam is to the right of the review mirror. The interior camera is directly in front of the front passenger seat and barely can see the driver. Bad design. One of the specs is that this camera is able to record at 4k resolution. The only way the front camera can record in 4k is if you only have 1 other camera, interior or rear, record at 1080. If you want to record all 3 cameras simultaneously, all cameras will be 1080 resolution. Which isn’t too bad because 1080 does serve the needs for most. I actually have a hard time telling the difference between a 1080 vs 4k recording since the lens is mostly rubbish. Its an ultra wide angle so I still have a hard time reading license plates unless its within a few feet away. That’s with both 1080 and 4k. Perhaps having options to record in 60fps would help but this dashcam only records in 30fps. The device doesn’t have a built in battery so you can’t review footage while the car is off or inoperative. App: The App is ok. Just plain ok. You don’t need the app to run the dashcam but it does allow you to view the footage straight on your phone. Streaming the footage to your phone is actually pretty fast but the caveat is that you’re unable to download the footage onto your phone. Swing and a miss! In order to get footage off the camera, you will need to take out the micro SD card and plug that into your computer. Very inconvenient if you needed to share footage with authority. Summary: I expected more in this price range. The 90s menu graphics, Inability to record in 4k with all 3 cameras and can’t download vids straight to your phone is why I can’t give the Rexing dashcam 5 stars.

    A triple camera 4k dashcam worth considering

    |
    Posted .

    The Rexing V5 Plus is a complete package needed for recording incidents in the car. It is a 3-piece system consisting of a front, cabin, and a rear camera. The front and cabin camera is housed together, while the rear camera is a separate unit that needs to be wired to the front unit. From a design point of view, the Rexing dash cam (front unit) is pretty large, and I had a hard time finding a good spot on the windshield of my truck. Especially, since a large area near the rear-view mirror is occupied by the safety sensors. This, and the particular share makes it quite difficult to mount it discreetly. I have tried multiple places, but never found a place that hides the camera from outside view. Other dashcams (especially the wedge shaped ones) are easier to do so. Furthermore, the position of the cables (1 for power, and another for the rear cam) does not help at all. As for the video quality: the front camera offers 4k resolution, but I kept it at 1080p, siding with a higher frame rate. The overall video and images from all 3 are adequate. The cabin cam has a purplish tint. The rear camera is ok. Overall with stock settings, the videos look ordinary - it gets the job done in terms of clarity, color etc., but nothing to be blown away withI didn’t fiddle much with the settings yet as I was trying to test it out with “out of the box” settings so I believe there is room for improvements. Mounting and setting up went without a hitch from the camera point of view. The included mounting hardware is straightforward to use. However I wish the instructions were a little more elaborate. The Rexing V5 offers WiFi connectivity via the Rexing Connect app. For a couple of days I couldn’t connect it to the camera at all. However, an app update seems to have solved this issue. The app is good for video viewing (including a live view), but not all the settings of the camera can be controlled by that - this is a major bummer for me as I wish I could change those without fumbling with the on-camera buttons (which is not easy while it’s mounted). Overall, I’m happy with the Rexing V5, as it offers a good package in this 3-camera system. WiFi connectivity is a good added bonus though the app has limited functionality. The video quality is workable with default settings. Definitely something to consider if you’re in the market for a 4k dashcam.

    GOOD VALUE 4K DASHCAM 3 CAMERA PACKAGE REXING V5

    |
    Posted .

    REXING - V5 PLUS 3-CHANNEL 4K DASH CAM 2.7 LCD WITH VOICE CONTROL, WI-FI, GPS - BLACK Model:BBYV5PLUS Best Buy Tech Insider Network GOOD VALUE 4K DASHCAM 3 CAMERA PACKAGE REXING V5 The REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM is an attractive and affordable bundle of gear, with 3 cameras, included memory card and more. There is a lot to like about the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM. For example, all the camera lenses are adjustable to allow for optimal aiming. Everything you need to get up and running is included. There is also a “starter” 32 GB SD memory card and cables, and mounting gear. A few things you should know that are not obvious from the description. If you choose to operate all 3 cameras at the same time, then all your images are all downgraded from 4K to 1080p. If you want 4K then you can only record one 4K image and up to one other 1080P image (for example front 4K and rear 1080p). In my case, I really don’t need the cabin camera, so I’m fine with just using front and rear view. The 4K vs 1080p issue probably does not matter as much as it might sound. The image sensor listed on the REXING - V5 PLUS website is rated for 5MP (megapixels). To get a true 4K image you need at least an 8MP sensor. So, if this information is correct, then the 4K image is being upscaled anyway (which is common on many cameras in this range and not necessarily a show stopping issue). To use the rear camera, you need to snake a cable from the camera head unit to the rear window (it is not wireless). You should also know that there is no suction cup installation, only the industrial sticky tape mounts are provided. Since I lease my car, (and it is due to be turned in shortly), I did not want to risk permanently mounting the dashcam. I assume there is a solvent that would remove the tape if needed. On the plus side this means the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM is not likely to fall from your windshield and cause a distraction as I have experienced with other suction cup mounted dashcams. The camera can be removed from the window mount, the window mount is more or less permanently stuck to the window. (a little 2 inch square). Picture Quality [PQ] on the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM is good. The front facing camera has the best image quality of the 3 cameras. The rear camera is also very good. However, the interior camera is not that good at all. Everything in the cabin has a purple tint that is very easy to notice (see pics). My roof is black but shows as bright purple in the recordings. In a side-by-side test with a different 4K camera my wife and I both preferred the overall appearance of the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM image, but it was artificially softened and thus missing enough detail to easily read license plate numbers on the car in front of you. The Voice Control Commands work well for example “Turn on the Screen”, “Turn on WiFi”. PROS - Three Included Cameras (Front, Rear, Cabin) for Three Streams 3-channel recording - All Cameras can be angled or rotated once in place to fine tune where they are pointed - Cables are plenty long enough and the rear cable is in two parts for easily hiding wires - Seems like a Sturdy Unit Overall - Includes all required mounting hardware - Includes Memory Card - Voice Commands that actually work well Rexing support was excellent and we were able to work together to find a bug preventing the phone app to connect via WiFi to the dashcam. This updated app version will probably be released by the time this review is published. The app is primarily used to view or download videos to your phone. If you want to do real movie processing you will probably be better off removing the SD card from the dashcam and editing movies on a real computer. I do wish the app allowed you to change all the dashcam settings instead of only a few, but again, once you have it set the way you want, you probably wont need the settings anyway. Physically, the installation of the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM was easy and straight forward. The menu keys (not touch screen) were a little cumbersome, though you probably only have to use them for initial setup. There is no tilt or swivel of the screen itself, so wherever you stick the mounting bracket that is where it goes. Really, you don’t want the distraction anyway, so my suggestion is to put as far away from you as possible. RECOMMENDATION If you are after an affordable and complete all in one 3 stream camera system (maybe you drive a car for hire), then the REXING - V5 PLUS DASHCAM is a great choice for consideration. If you just want the best forward facing dashcam image you can get, you might want to shop for better optics in other models.

    Do not buy!!! I have gone through TWO units because the camera keeps freezing on start/splash screen. Buy another model or brand. Worthless when this is the only thing that shows up on the screen.

    Very nice dash cam!

    |
    Posted .

    Out of the box - Nicely packaged and great quality! Instructions were very good and easy to follow and set up. The unit has all the things needed to set up the dash cam in the front and rear using 3M adhesives. Make sure to allow it to stick for 20 minutes prior to installing the dash cam. The adhesive is very strong to make sure you place the bracket in the correct spot or else it will take a lot of strength to remove it. The adhesive sticks and holds even in high temperatures. While the adhesive was setting, I formatted the SD card and within seconds the card was formatted. After 20 minutes I connected the dash cam and plugged it in and started driving. See uploaded photos for clarity, my windows are tinted and you can still see out them without issues. I could only upload photos not videos but the video footage is as clear as the still photo. Inside and outside the cabin. The video clarity is amazing and I love that it captures the time, date and speed during recording. The only thing that I am unable to upload is a photo of the three video feeds on the screen. While driving the dash cam display shows the 3 camera footage and when you download the card its separated as F (Front), R (Rear), T. The dash cam also has the option to take photos. The dash cam has a good number of features to optimize the video feed. The reason why I gave it 4 stars is because the cables. There are so many cables and if you outlet is in the center console which was my case it has to be set up and in the middle of the gear shifter. The reason why is so that it turns on automatically when you start the car and immediately starts recording so you dont have to worry about turning it on. I would like to see this unit have a rechargeable battery to get rid of all the cords especially when hooking up the rear cam. Overall, the Rexing V5 has a lot of great features and the video quality is a excellent for a dash cam. I would recommend as a must buy if you dont mind the cords and looking for an easy to use and set up dash cam.

    This is the worst camera I've ever seen. Best buy changed their total tech program to only include items purchased through them, ok that's fine but they need to start carrying better products because this is embarrassing! I bought 2 different SD cards and they wouldn't work, but it might be the camera because randomly it will only record 1 second at a time. The picture is grainy and yes, the cabin camera is purple. The back camera is so cheap there is lines running through it. The menu is old looking, and they can't even spell correctly. I bought the hardwire kit to protect me from hit and runs and vandalism but I can't trust this thing. I will try to make them install a new one but if that doesn't work they need to install a different one this is ridiculous!

    Good 3 camera system

    |
    Posted .

    THE BREAKDOWN: This REXING- V5 PLUS 3-Channel 4K DashCam 2.7 LCD with voice control, Wi-Fi and GPS is priced right and is very easy to install. Everything you need to get this up and running is in the box. It even included a 32G SD memory card to get you started. Once installed the cameras are easy to move around and fine toon to your needs. One thing to note about this camera system is that you enable all 3 cameras then the quality will drop from 4K to 1080p. You can however have your front camera on 4K and the rear camera will be at 1080p. For myself I really don’t have a use for the cabin or inside camera. If I was a lyft or Uber driver I could see the use. The installation was pretty straight forward, and it even came with a little plastic tool to help hide the cable. This whole process took me around 20 min. The images were best on the front camera. The rear camera was good but not excellent and the cabin camera was the worse of the three. Like I said that wasn’t an issue for me as I will not likely use the cabin camera. For me the app was just ok. With the app you can view the footage straight on your phone. The streaming of the video to my phone really wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t instant but it was good. If you want to download your data you have to take the micro SD card out of the camera an plug it in your computer. Then download the media to save it or share it. PRO’s: -3 cameras -Comes with everything you need to get it setup and using it -Good voice commands CON’s: -No built in battery -Cannot download your video straight to your phone -Menus need updated SUMMARY: Overall, this product worked as intended, and I would recommend this to a friend if they are in the market for device like this that is portable and gets the job done.

    First, I should note that I received this camera, and had issues with it. I did a warranty exchange, and the new unit had the SAME issues, so I can only review what I see, problems and all. Either all units suffer this problem, or quality control is so lacking that you stand a chance of seeing the same problems. On with the review. The design included three physical cameras: one on the main unit itself facing forward, one plug-in on the right side to record the passengers, and one that attaches to the rear window via a long cable to record the cars behind you. One of the main features is 4K recording. Is it usable? Not so much with this kit. Once I enabled “4k 30 FPS” I got 4K recording on the front camera. The two rear-facing cameras? Not usable at all. So much for that feature. Note that there were two other options in the menu that MIGHT have enabled all cameras to work. Let me check the manual. Whoops, no manual at all – even on the web site! All you get is a quick start guide, which goes over NO menu options at all. OK, you start driving. This unit features a built-in GPS receiver. It works so great that I was going over 30 miles per hour while stopped at a red light. This was after 20 continuous minutes of driving (ordinary GPS receivers can get ephemeris data after about two minutes, so there was plenty of time). So much for that feature. This unit also does not have a battery. From tech support: “The supercapacitor will support unit for 3-5 seconds to shut down the unit.” Guess how long mine lasts? If you said “0 seconds” then you are a winner. There is also a red battery icon in the upper-right corner (yes, two separate units had this same defect). There is also the “voice commands” which seem to work well, mostly. There is a command for “Stop video.” Guess what that does? It stops the current video recording and immediately starts another one. Since each video is, at most, one minute, this seems of dubious utility. Yes, each video is a max of one minute. There is also an elapsed recording time in the lower-right of the display that has enough digits to count up to 99 hours of recording. Huh? A six-digit time counter where you can only use up to three digits. This shows the loving craftsmanship that was used in slamming together a unit as quickly as possible. According to the company’s web site, there were no firmware updates available at the time of this writing. The camera starts out showing video from all three cameras. The front camera takes up the lower half of the screen, and the interior and rear cameras split the upper half. If you get a notice on power-up (such as a problem with the SD card), it pops up in a yellow box in the middle of the screen. However, the two extra camera displays cover up the top half of the display, making it unreadable. Score one more embarrassment for the firmware team! After an app update, connecting your phone to this camera works just fine, allowing you to view nearly live video, or to download photos and videos. At least this feature actually worked, a pleasant surprise for this model. Finally an advertised feature that works as expected.

    Rexing - V5 Plus 3-Channel 4K Dash Cam 2.7" LCD with Voice Control, Wi-Fi, GPS - Black The Rexing V5 is a good starter pack for anyone who is doing ride sharing. Installation was easy, but wires will be visible if you connect the back camera. The front 2 cameras have no tilt option to reposition them, so however you mount them, they are stuck there. package includes: - 2 front side cameras to cover the road and inside the cabin, one rear camera - wires required for installation (no profesional installation required) - lighter charging adapter. - 3m sticker to mount the camera - mounts - user guide - plastic prying tool to get the wires hidden at the front. App and connectivity: The app is clunky and the UX is very old for 2021. it is slow but gets the job done, I hope that at some point there will be a new firmware update to get it to be better. Pros: - 3 cameras for complete coverage if you need it. - high quality images and video - when a collision happens, the software locks the footage so it cant be erased. - installation is fairly easy. Cons: - no battery which means no parking collision detection. at this price you would think this is a must. - app is very sluggish. - User guide is not helpful. - it just didn't feel premium.

    Ideal for share ride drivers

    >> Overview The Rexing V5 Plus Dashboard Camera comes with three (3) cameras, front, rear and cabin, allowing you to have recorded video of your surroundings and inside your car whenever needed. It has voice commands that allow you to control the most common actions on the device while driving so that you don’t get distracted reaching out with your hand to, for example, stop/start recording. The device can be configured to record feeds from one, two or the three cameras, so it is very versatile. It starts operating as soon as you turn on your car and starts recording by default. Although I am not a shared car driver, I believe this device would be very useful for them. As a private driver, it provides my family and me with peace of mind, as we have video recordings in case we need to have video proofs or even provides video evidence of events that happen outside while we are driving. In these modern and litigious/dangerous times, I strongly believe a dashcam is a must have. I think this device is between 4 and a perfect 5 from what I have experienced in the last few days: - Pros: voice commands, three-way cameras, high quality video. - Cons: Concealing the cables is hard. >> Installation/Setup This device doesn’t come with a suction cup to attach it to your windshield and detach when desired. As a result, picking a good place where to attach it to the windshield needs some time. The booklet Installation steps states to first place the 3M tape near the edge of the windshield and secure the T-interlock, but then you may encounter issues securing the actual device to T-interlock (not enough space to slide the camera in) or you may not be pleased where the camera resulted to end up located at. So, what I did first was to plug the camera and turn on the car and do the basic camera configurations; next I tried different positions close to edge of the windshield that would feel more convenient and easier to access the device. After finding the perfect spot, I placed the 3M tape and attached the T-interlock which allows me to unplug the camera and detach it from the windshield whenever needed. That is the easy part, the most difficult part is concealing the cables, it was a nightmare for me to place the cables under the trim (I installed the camera on a RAV4). Luckily the device comes with some 3M attachments for cable management that can be attached at different locations for securing the cables, especially useful for installing the rear camera. This is a drawback for any device that needs to run cables around the car. In summary, I’d first plug in the camera and determine where things look better before placing the 3M tape and mount. >> Cameras and recording As mentioned before, the device has three (3) cameras and you can setup to have only one, two or the three recording at the same time. In addition, you can physically remove the cabin cam if wanted; perhaps for private users inside recording might not be something desired, but definitely for a shared driver having recording inside the car is a must. Each camera has its own file that is saved on the SD card and the video quality is very good. I’ve noticed that the videos recordings are 1-min long, and I haven’t tried changing that, I think for the most part that should be sufficient. The device rolls over old footage, so the 256GB SD car that came with the device seems good enough so far. >> Voice commands This is one feature that I like very much for controlling the device while driving, it does an excellent job at recognizing our voices/commands. There are commands to start/stop recording, for changing the view of the camera (rear, front or all). There is a chart with the different commands supported by the camera that comes with the device. Perhaps having a “list commands” command would have come handy to hear what commands are available and not resort to the chart (while the different commands are memorized). >> App and Wireless connection This is the next most useful feature, basically controlling most of the settings through the phone App and being able to see the recordings on my phone rather than on the device or on a computer. The App allows you to see the videos, lock them secure if needed, and to delete them. It also gives you live feed of the cameras, so I am thinking on perhaps getting a Tablet and install the App there to get easier access to the rear camera when backing up, for example. >> Connecting to PC I’ve been unsuccessful to connect the device to a laptop or desktop or docking station. According to support it is due to how much energy the device needs. >> Park monitoring Unfortunately, the Park Monitoring module needs to be purchased separately, I wish it was part of the default package.

    Rexing V5 Dashcam Complete auto recording with Voice! Tl;dr Records sharp video during both day and night driving. Wide angle front recording and 3 separate video streams / files from the different cameras. Decent app with WiFi downloading. On the larger side with limited ability to position the interior camera. Voice commands are not always intuitive. Settings navigation video button controls-no touch screen. Why do you need a dash camera? It’s them, not you. It’s the capture the moments when someone does something stupid to cause an accident. The V5 Plus camera set up from Rexing covers all the angles you’d need if you ever needed it. The box includes a front facing camera, a wired rear facing camera, and an interior facing camera. The front and rear cameras come with adhesive to attach to your windows. It also comes with clips to hold the wire going between the front and back windows. I was able to use the included tool to tuck the wire into the car’s header, door seals, and moulding so it wasn’t visible at all. I have a hatchback, and there was plenty of wire left to install in a decent size SUV. This camera was an upgrade for me, adding the rear attached camera. My daughter is just learning to drive, and I wanted to make sure we’d have a full record if anything were to happen when she’s driving. The extra cameras assure it won’t be her word alone if she were in an accident or gets a ticket. The V5 Plus has a built in GPS capability and records speed and location on each video. This information is included on each download for instant access as needed. The interior camera has infrared LEDs lighting up your car. This can be especially nice for ride share drivers, as it picks up both daytime and nightime drives. It’s a good idea to make sure passengers are aware they are under surveillance. Even if your state doesn’t require this notification, it’s common courtesy and may keep some trouble from happening. The video quality is decent at night, but don’t expect much more than shadows. The front camera can record at 4K or 1080p. In playback, I did not notice much difference. There were some enhancements near the edge of the screen, but overall, I would stick with the 1080p record mode. The main advantage of this mode is to have all 3 camera angles recorded to the included SD card. Note that each camera records to a separate video file. When playing back, there is not synchronized view of all the cameras. Each video *does* have a location and time stamp, allowing for manual synchronization. There are several options for saving a given file. These include voice commands, pressing an arrow button on the camera, or using the Rexing Connect app on your phone. When I first tried the app it had some issues connecting to WiFI. I contacted support and they showed me that a new version of the app is available for direct download from their support website. While it’s nice it was fixed, there are a lot of comments in the app store about WiFI challenges, suggesting that this was a big deal to many users. .

    Great picture from all 3 cameras

    I have had a decent dash cam for about a year. One thing that always bothered me is that if there is an accident from behind, I have no video covering that area. My daughter and her boyfriend were slammed from behind and a video would be very helpful during the court case! This camera covers a wide front view, a cabin view, and a very clear rearview. Installation was pretty quick. I was not able to feed the cable completely under trim from the front to the back but the tool provided helped me get it under enough trim to keep it out of the way. I have a mid-sized SUV and there is PLENTY of extra cable to run to the back camera. I had to use the twist ties to collect some extra and keep it out of the way. The only downside- I have not been able to get the app to pair with the camera so that I can see what the camera sees on my phone and download clips. I have reached out to support at Rexing but it has been about 5 days and I have not heard back (one demerit for the company). The memory card is easy to remove and plug into a computer to review your drive without using the app but I would like to get the camera connected to my phone eventually. Hopefully, Rexing will contact me back soon. Overall, this is a great way to view the front back, and cabin for your protection. Check your state for regulations. In my state, nothing can block my vision so I have mounted it right behind my rearview mirror. It does mean I cannot see the screen on the camera while I am driving but I should not be looking at that anyway! The camera is to record if, heaven forbid, there is an accident or incident.

    Core Features Work, But Some Issues with GPS

    |
    Posted .

    Road shenanigans are an everyday part of life. Many times I’ve seen things from within my car thinking, “Dang I wish I caught that on camera!”. The Rexing V5 Plus is an option for us who are shopping around for a reliable dash cam that does its core feature of keeping watch, but with additional niceties to help it stand out. Installing the V5 Plus will vary from vehicle to vehicle as well as from person to person; if you’re pretty handy, it’s really not a bad install. I installed it in my SUV and it took about an hour from start to finish. The power cable and rear camera cable were more than sufficient in length for the install and I had to get creative in hiding the excess wire, and I think it’s plenty to satisfy even the longest vehicles, like a Chevy Suburban. I installed the main unit right centered under my rear view mirror where I can see and reach for the buttons when I need to make changes. I installed the rear camera right on the rear window within the cabin. The cabin camera simply attaches to the right side of the main unit via mini-USB and can be detached anytime. Using the V5 Plus is very straightforward. First thing you’ll need is a MicroSD card (a 32gb card is included), which will need to be formatted while in the unit. I opted for a 256gb, which is probably overkill, but what’s great is that it can accept cards up to that size, and it works just fine. Navigating the menu system is fairly simple as well. There are four main viewing modes (1) Front@4K, (2) Front@4K Rear@1080p, (3) Front@4K Cabin@1080p, and (4) Front-Cabin-Rear@720-1080p. I roll with (2) as it makes the most sense for my daily commute. The other setting that was worth changing was the date/time. I was off to the races at that point. When the car is turned to ignition, the unit automatically recalls your last setting and starts recording. When the car is powered off, the unit powers off as well. Video quality varies from camera to camera. The Front-facing camera takes the win for 4K-30Hz. The rear camera comes in at 2nd at 1080p and I can still make out license plates when cars approach behind me. The in-cabin camera is last; it also provides 1080p recordings, but boy, does it have a purple hue. Overall, the cameras do their best to adjust to lighting conditions, and sometimes the corrections can become overly aggressive. Now for the geeky stuff. The unit performs loop recordings, meaning that once your MicroSD card becomes full, it will begin overwriting your oldest recordings with new recordings. Us software geeks call them circular buffers. Anyway, you’ll never have to worry about running out of space. A loop recording on a 256gb MicroSD card will probably yield several, several days of recordings, so the included 32gb might be more than enough for a few days at a time. Playing back the recordings required me to purchase the HEIC plugin for my Windows Player. The videos are folder organized by camera and are broken down into 1 minute files to help you easily isolate an incident that was captured on camera. A very strong point for the unit is voice control. I was extremely surprised to see how well it responded to every phrase. I only wished Siri or Google Assistant were this good. Yeah, it’s THAT good. You can switch camera views on the LCD, turn on/off WiFi and take a photo, for example. Speaking of WiFi, you can connect to the V5 Plus using the RexingConnect app on your phone or tablet. You can control recording settings as well as browse through your recordings on your phone. Connecting to the unit requires that you connect to its WiFi signal. The SSID and password is displayed on the LCD. WiFi may seem gimmicky, but I do see one important use case. I see myself connecting to WiFi when I need to get a video out immediately to provide proof to my insurance company or to assist our law enforcement community. Plain and simple. The only aspect of the V5 Plus that I struggled with is the GPS. For some reason, I cannot get Lat/Lon and MPH to update in real-time on the LCD, and my recordings only show a fixed Lat/Lon location as well as 00 MPH. I don’t know if it has to do with where I live (I don’t think it does?), especially when the car’s built-in GPS works as well as our cell phones and smart watches equipped with GPS. Geolocation and speed can go a long way in proving something one way or another. I’ll keep driving daily to see if anything changes, and ultimately may have to give Rexing a call if things don’t improve here. Not a showstopper, but definitely a bummer. All things considered, these dash cams are a set-it-and-forget-it device. They are our watchful eyes when we are behind the wheel and come through for us when we need them most.

    Cords everywhere but does the job

    |
    Posted .

    The Rexing V5 Plus is a good little dash cam that gets the job done. Let’s start with the contents. It has a 32 GB micro sd card and micro sd adapter. The sd card goes into the side of the camera so that the videos will record onto the card and then you can transfer it to your computer. You can use up to a 256 GB card if you have that. You have to format the sd card when you put it into the dash cam. I had to do that every time I took the card out. It was a bit of a hassle to do that. It also has an in cabin cam, the dash cam, and the rear cam. The in cabin cam has to be connected to the side of the dash cam. The lens sticks out so you can move the lens to any angle you want. The amount of movement is very limited but the cam also captures a slightly less than 180 degree angle. I can see myself completely and all the way to the passenger side in the 3 inch screen on the dash cam. The screen has picture in picture, so you can see inside the cabin behind you and what the dash cam is capturing on the road in front of you at the same time. On the screen, you’ll also find a compass that tells where in which direction you are going, the temperature, your speed, the record icon to let you know that you are recording, and the wifi icon (it has built in wifi so you can record and upload to your account if you download the app). The screen can be shut off by voice command by saying “Turn off screen”. There are actually a set of voice commands that you can say to control what the dash cam does. The installation of the dash cam left me a little disappointed. First, because of all the cords. The dash cam has to be plugged into the cigarette lighter in order to turn on. As soon as you start your car, it powers up and starts recording. When you turn the car off, it turns off. The power cord is very long and meant to be guided by clips that stick to your windshield and travel along the top of your windshield down to the side of the passenger and then under the dashboard where the glove box is located and into the cigarette lighter. After literally a couple of hours, the clips came off of the windshield and I had the power cord hanging down on my dashboard. It looks sloppy. You also have to plug in the rear cam and run the cord along the inside top of the car cabin. Again, making the car look cluttered. They did not provide enough clips for this cord so I just didn’t use the rear cam. My opinion of this dash cam is that while it gets the job done, it makes your car look cluttered and sloppy with cords everywhere. I like all the features it has on the screen, but I don’t like that the cords can get tangled with your feet and you can accidentally yank the cord or trip over the cord as you exit the vehicle.

    Does Not Work As Advertised

    Owned for 2 months when reviewed.

    I bought 4 of these V5s based on past excellent experience with a Rexing V1P. I decided to upgrade to the V5 because of the higher resolution and bought 3 more, one for my second car and two for my children. The video is exceptional! However, the speed and location of the vehicle are not recorded as advertised. See the attached examples. Under no circumstances was speed and location recorded. Plus, there was always an adequate number of GPS satellites visible to compute location and speed. I have tried working with Rexing Support with no resolution. I have tried all of their recommendations with no resolution. I was even told by one of the support individuals that if the video was being recorded, that's all I need! How rude and assuming can a support person be? I bought the products for the speed and location data in case it is ever necessary in resolving fault in an accident. Until I get a resolution to this issue, I do not recommend that anyone purchase this product. However, if you have purchased one of these and want to use a larger SD card, you'll have to contact Rexing to find out which SD manufacturers cards will work - SanDisk cards will not work with Rexing V5s! Also, if you want to know how to operate all of the V5 features, you'll have to surf the internet to find those instructions and videos. The "manual" included will not tell you how to do that. If Rexing resolves this issue, I will post an updated review.
