Apeman dash Camera Manual
A rise in accidents in recent has led to a demand for dash cameras. A few months back, a friend of mine had a car accident. A teenage driver hit my’ friend’s car from behind and sped away before he could ask him to stop. After that incident, I advised my friend to buy a dash camera. We were looking at several choices when the Apeman came to our notice, so we decided to have a look at its manual for detailed specifications.
What differentiates the Apeman from other dash camera is its rear camera. Since my friend’s accident occurred from behind, he wanted a camera which will record rear view as well. An additional feature which impressed both of us was the motion detector. It was also very easy to install.
Concerned parents who let their teenage children drive their cars can also heave a sigh of relief when a dash camera is installed in their car. In such cases, they can be used to keep an eye on the teenagers, proved that they don’t deactivate or turn off the camera before driving.
What is Apeman dash camera?
Most people nowadays know what a dash camera such as the Apeman is since they are in huge demand. The number of road accidents and victims of fraud is increasing all the time. This is where a dash camera can save you a lot of trouble.
I am sure that you have gone through a lot of manuals for a dash camera before reading this article on the Apeman. You must have noticed that most dash cameras cannot record anything on the rear. In such cases, you won’t be able to press charges or claim compensation from a vehicle’s driver if the accident occurred at the back of your vehicle.
The camera supports a maximum visual angle of 170 degree, which is 10-25 degrees wider than most dash cameras in the market. What this means is that the video’s image will be bigger when you see the recording. The screen’s size is 2 inches.
It also comes with G Sensor and loop protection to protect and also overwrite any old videos. Front camera is 1080p and rear 480p. Some other features include a wire mount to keep the wire hidden, small size to hide it from your view, and good value for the price.
History of Apeman dash camera
Very few details about the Apeman dash camera’s release date can be found in its manual. It got our attention earlier this year due to an article in the website ‘dashcamguru’ earlier this year. The dash camera was featured to be one of the cheapest out in the market.
We have seen the quality of the 1080p 30fps video of the camera and it exceeded our expectations. The video footage at night was also satisfactory but in some places, the images were a bit difficult to identify. Number plates of the car are not clear during the night.
Since this a camera for people with low budget, it is natural to have a feeling of ‘cheap plastic’. Also, the Apeman’s C550’s capacitor protects the device from overheating, which many budget dash cameras currently lack.
