- Fairly compact
- Mounts securely and is fully adjustable
- With the exception of the mini sd card formatting, it' pretty much plug and play deal unless you want to customize settings with exceptional
- Came with quick start guide which is bonus
- Minimal controls and buttons (so less confusion while on the go)
- Really wide view so you can see traffic on right and left lanes at same time
- Resolution is pretty good, and you can clearly see license plate of the car in front of you. If 4 car lengths ahead however, you can’t make out the license plate, but everything else is clear
- There is a button on top of the camera, that's easy to reach, allowing you to take a quick snapshot
- Camera continues to record for period of time after the car is shut off,
- Has a g sensor designed to activate during collisions or events. These videos/images and can’t be recorded over after, as they're saved in separate folder (apart from the regular recordings). This is good so that you can be sure that the data is safe, but bad in that you have to manually delete these.
- Option of having audio on and off easily
- Option of pausing recording (in case you don't want something to be recorded), and this will start recording as usual again (automatically) when the car is restarted
- The plug that connects into camera by mount should be on right side (passenger side) and not left as we'd prefer to not run the cord on the driver's side.. .. .. but this would be a plus for non-us drivers
- Cord is of generous length, but for mid-size and some larger vehicles, it would be a stretch to run this along perimeter and of the car and to the receptacle
- Formatting card is difficult at first, as you can't format the card with the camera, and we learned the hard way (after taking off on a trip that we really wanted to use the camera on), that Windows 10 doesn't format the card to FAT32 either. After searching on the internet, we had to download a (free) program, so that the card could be properly formatted. Worked like a charm after, but we were a bit annoyed at first. Additionally, the quick start guide didn't mention that we couldn't format the card in the device (or at least we didn't see this in there), so we had to wait until we got back from the trip to read the bigger manual, as we didn't take that with us on vacation either!
Instruction booklet although comprehensive, print was tiny
- It would be nice if we could charge battery longer, so that we can use the camera without it being plugged in
- Would be nice if this had a rear view, but I think that's available in a later version
- The camera ball mount allows you to adjust and screw to tighten the camera, but even if it's at its tightest, and you push the button to take a still image, but easily loosens
Because I know that me getting hit by some jerk is only a matter of time I thought it would be good to invest in some protection. I drive a new truck and I want to make sure that when I do get hit I can have evidence that they fault it not with me. I have been trying out a number of different dash cameras and I can honestly say that the Vantrue cameras are some of the best. I have tried more expensive options and less expensive ones but this model is my perfect camera.
It has really good picture quality but is not overly large like many of the 4K camera on Amazon, it doesn't have any fake chrome, which is tacky in my opinion. It mounts well and then the plug is into the mount instead of the camera itself, it makes for a much cleaner install. I did have to go buy a 15ft mini USB cable to hard wire the camera into my truck but that was worth the extra $5 to not have a cable hanging down.
If you are in the market for a camera, do yourself a favor and buy this one.

As for the quality of this product.
Its feature of Full HD 1080P allows the capture of very clear images and videos even in the poor lighting environment. The wide viewing angles features allow capturing pretty much all the front and side views.
For the function of this product.
The system has an accident sensor so will save the potential or actual accident record in the SOS system and Its seamless loop recording automatically overwrites the other old record. To save time for the drivers to go over every single thing before deleting any record.
There is the camera, the charger cable, sticky mount, and a suction cup mount included in the package. Very easy to set up and the size is perfect (did not block my views). However, the memory card is not included in the set, so before buying it, remember to get the memory card as well
Yet seeing a bit of the camera is a small compromise of neatness in exchange for the security of having this thing on guard in case you ever have to prove who did what, what color the light was, etc. It produces amazingly clear, crisp videos with a very good full-width view. The GPS mount, which is just $30 extra, is essential, I'd say – with the GPS option, video clips display the vehicle speed, to help police evaluate any eye-witless accounts of whatever transpired, should the need arise.
Note: The supplied power cable is just 10 feet long. That's plenty if you're going to run it along the header, down behind the A-pillar, under the dash and then have it emerge from under there and stay in view plugged into a front-facing 12 volt socket. But I wanted the wire to just vanish completely, so I kept it running out of sight past the shotgun seat and into the centre console compartment, where there's another 12V socket. For that, 10 feet was just exactly enough in my car. For some vehicles a pathway like that might require a longer cable, so it's a good idea to measure your planned cable path before ordering one of these gizmos. Other than that, no worries at all. Setup is intuitive and the documentation is pretty clear, despite some odd language caused by inexpert translation from the original Chinese. I cannot speak to the device's long-term durability, but it seems solid and hefty, and I found no fault with it right out of the box.
Intro: I happened to be in the market for an “inexpensive but reasonably well-featured” dashcam for my son’s new job as a long-haul trucker, so timing was good. But mounting in a truck comes with certain challenges that may not apply to the average car-driver, making this a pretty decent test. My own vehicle has a high-end camera that cost about 7x the price of this, and in many ways, this meets nearly the same standards, just missing some expensive functionality.
In the box: The camera, the suction-based mounting bracket, a USB cable, a cigarette plug power cable, and a small instruction manual. Note that there’s only the one mounting bracket (more on that below).
Installing: So, I’ve always had bad luck when it comes to suction-based mounts. Despite all the various “tricks”, they never work well, or for long. Inevitably I always end up using the hard mount, if provided, or fabricating something. Here we find the one weakness of this camera, the mount. It’s a custom mount that can’t be dismantled. The suction cup is small and (pretty much as expected) didn’t work well. The other problem is that in many US states (I’m in Canada, but the truck would be going south of the border often) it’s illegal to stick things to the windshield. The exact laws vary, but the basic policy of many trucking companies is “nothing stuck to the windshield”. In the end I had to do some fabrication to get it mounted where we wanted it (top console, hard-mounted). Luckily, I have a lot of experience with this, but an average person might have challenges and end up resorting to various adhesives.
The camera itself slides into the mount, and it’s a tight fit, but easy to remove if theft is a concern.
That’s the bad part (and not all that bad in the grand scheme of things). But one big plus is that the power cable is extra-long. Like way long enough to run across the top, down the side and leisurely though the dash to the cigarette plug, with wire to spare. It’s a standard USB on the camera end, so you can use other cabling options if desired. I’ve seen many dashcams, including much more expensive ones that come with a measly 3ft cable, which is just dumb.
Also in the box was a separate micro-USB cable to plug into the camera for file transfer, and it was also very generous in length. You could plug that cable into the camera to download videos without having to remove it from the mount.
Note that this comes with no microSD card, so you’ll need to get one. It’s always recommended to get a good one, preferably an MLC-rated card specifically for dashcam use. I used a spare MLC-rated 64Gig card for testing, but the camera will take up to a 256Gig card (which is very rare in this space). Personally, for day-to-day use I wouldn’t go smaller than a 128Gig, and probably a Samsung Evo+ or one of the newer cards specifically for this use, like the Pro Endurance line. The smaller the card, the quicker it’ll fill up and start erasing old recordings. My 64Gig lasted a bit less than 24 hours of combined normal/parking (remember, this was in a truck driving 10 hours a day).
If you go cheap on the microSD, expect to run into problems eventually (file corruption, lost recordings, etc.). This advice applies to all dashcams, not just this one. In my experience, many dashcam complaints stem from dying microSD cards.
Operation: The LCD screen is pretty small. It’s really only useful for aiming and running through the menus. You don’t want to try to review videos on that. But that’s pretty typical for this type of camera, and isn’t a negative. The menus are pretty straightforward, and the options clear. A couple of the options are not well documented, and you’ll likely play with a few settings to figure them out.
If you enable the parking mode (which is a significant feature of this camera at this price point), then it uses an algorithm that I surmised was based on how much of the overall screen area was “moving” to determine whether the entire vehicle was moving (this putting it back in normal recording). Sounds complicated, but for the non-nerds in the audience, it just works. Seemed to record normal when moving, parking when not. After the first week, I turned off parking mode but left the G-sensor on to record “impact” events. In a big truck, slamming the door triggered an “impact”, and recorded accordingly. This was as-expected, and it worked fine. You can adjust sensitivity.
The manual is a bit confusing as far as “protecting” recordings or taking still pictures. It’s all based on the “mode button” on the top, but the manual wording is confusing. In fact, while we managed to capture a couple of still photos, we’re still not entirely sure how. For protecting a video (the more common requirement), the manual says to push the button while it’s recording. That’s not entirely all of it though. If the display is off (which it normally should be), the first tap of the button restores the display, but doesn’t protect the video. A second tap while the display is on protects that recording (only that one, not before/after, which would be my preference). A tiny icon (not really visible when you’re driving) shows the lock, but I’d have preferred some sort of sound notification. You shouldn’t be looking at the camera while driving to see what it’s doing.
Video quality: The camera has a good-quality 1080p sensor that records at the typical 30fps. The videos generated were of very good quality. On playback, with a bit of squinting, it was quite possible to make out license plate numbers of close vehicles. Especially for this price point, the quality of the video produced was high, and I can’t imagine anybody complaining about that.
The other plus is the wide field of view (160° according to the specs). In the truck, this covered well off to both sides, and with the hood mirrors the videos captured overtaking vehicles on both sides.
There was some reflection from the windshield, mostly in the corners, but only the higher-end dashcams costing hundreds more support polarizing filters, so no points off for this.
The “night vision” is pretty good, especially at this price point. But people do need to set their expectations appropriately. These things aren’t going to “see in the dark”, and there’s no IR lighting or anything (which wouldn’t work behind a windshield anyway). One downside to “night vision” is that if, for example, you’re behind a vehicle with brighter license plate lights, it’ll wash out the plate and make it unreadable.
Viewing: I usually just pop out the microSD and stick it in my PC to copy the folders. Or use the supplied USB cable to connect to a separate machine, where it shows up as a standard USB drive, but only USB2 so copying will be slow. The camera also has a built-in mini-HDMI port. I don’t happen to have a proper cable, so I haven’t tried that out yet. But that’d be handy to plug the camera into an HDMI monitor or TV for quick viewing on the “big screen”.
Epilogue: I may yet order the separate GPS unit (I’m watching for a sale). While some may complain that it sucks the GPS isn’t included, the reality is if they’d done that, the price would be higher, causing complaints from those who don’t need the GPS. And while there’s a Viewer app that would support the GPS, the Windows one seems to be broken (scripting errors from Google Maps, and it doesn’t actually seem to play recordings).
I've had this camera for over a week now. It easily fits on the windshield and neatly hides behind the rear-view mirror. The videos when reviewed on my laptop are sharp and clear. The night time videos are surprisingly great. The customisation options are plus. You can control the audio, camera resolution, license plate display, auto shutoff, G-sensor sensitivity and parking mode features. The time lapse mode is a bonus if you are travelling in a scenic route. As mentioned by others, I would also recommend setting the G-sensor sensitivity to low (even at medium sensitivity the dash-cam is too responsive). Make sure you turn off parking mode when you move the camera out of your car at any time, else the camera would switch on for every shake and keep capturing protected videos.
An in-built GPS unit would have been great (we need to purchase a separate unit in order to use the GPS feature). The charging ports provided are different - a micro USB on the camera (to charge the camera directly) but a mini USB in the holder (which connects to the car charger). Even though charging cables for both USB types are provided, an uniformity would have been good. These are definitely not deal breakers though. Overall, this is a great and compact dash-cam which can satisfy most of your needs.
So far I have not experienced any issues with this camera. It would be nice if the GPS unit was included in the package.
Two things, I need to figure out is why it plays on fast forward when I view from my laptop. I tried to view in slow mode (turtle), but it still played in fast forward. Probably just one setting away from figuring this out. Maybe it is the Transcend High Endurance 32GB Class 10 SD card I am using in it.
Also, maybe there is a trick to removing the camera from the mount but I couldn't after it is on. I was hoping to remove the camera easily when I parked it for a long time, instead it leaves me with removing the whole mount with camera. Not a show stopper. I will contact Vantrue if I can't figure this out. They seem really receptive to assisting.
Packaging is great! Manual is an easy read, it stays suctioned to the windshield. I ensured to clean the windshield prior to mounting the dash cam to it.
Overall, excellent dash cam and though only one day using it, I have no doubt it will be good to have on the dash.
Upon opening the box, I had doubts about how well it'd perform due to how little it is. I got this for my wife's car and I have a DOD one that's twice the size of this one, and this little guy is packed with all kinds of features while it takes up so little viewing space!
Now it's been about a week since we started using it. I checked a bunch of footages, and to my surprise the quality is actually extremely good. For a hundred bucks this is honestly worth it. The G sensor at default(medium) is actually a little too sensitive at first so it locked a good bunch of files, but lowering it to low setting is much better.
Highly recommended for anyone looking for a good day-to-day dashcam.
Worth every dólar.
But the worst part is its adhesive holder. The suction cup is poor and fell down a 100 times; many times during driving and at other times hurting the co passenger.
If your dash cam falls down suddenly during, it really jeopardizes safety. They have to do better on the suction cup.
Thanks again Amazon!
My only gripe has been that for cars that don't have an automatic power cut from the Cigarette lighter 12v socket, it would be nice to have an auto-off timeout feature should nothing happen say for about 10 minutes.
