Rexing dash cam review
Dash cameras have gained popularity in the last few years due to rise in accidents and criminal acts. If you are not familiar with the Rexing V1, you must have read reviews of other dash camera models recently.
A few months ago, one of my friend’s teenage son was injured in a car accident. Later my friend learned that his son picked up his friends during his car ride and his son drove the car at high speed to impress them. The camera recorded the audio of other teenager’s voices and the video when they were entering the car. A dash camera is often the solution to such problems since it can record an entire journey.
Since it can record both audio and video, you can monitor the behavior of other drivers during your journey. For example, if you are involved in a car accident, the footage from the dash camera will help you to determine who was at fault. Many drunk drivers are responsible for causing accidents and if you have the footage, it can be used as proof against the culprit to show law enforcement officials.
If you have children playing at a park, the camera can record and capture the image of any person who might try to kidnap your child. It comes in handy if there is a risk of your child being kidnapped.
Some people also like to take memories of long journeys. There is no problem if you use it for other purposes but it is often a waste of time and misuse of the Dash camera.
What is Rexing V1 dash camera?
It is an award-winning dash camera which offers a lot of features compared to its price. When we were reviewing the Rexing V1 dash camera, we were impressed by its large screen, stealth features and also the angle of unlike many other dash cameras, you will not see its wires hanging from the windscreen. The vision of the driver will not be affected by the camera.
Such cameras also come in handy in case a fraud hits your car and tries to claim compensation by blaming the incident on you. I have seen many cases where the fraudster pretends to have been ‘affected’ by an accident and receive money for medical bills from the insurance company. If you have a recording of the incident, you can do the exact opposite to them, i.e. get compensation from the fraudster instead.
Features of the Rexing V1
Some of the most prominent features of the camera are given below.
The best feature of any dash camera is how good it can record an incident. Your insurance company will be forced to give you thousands of dollar for car repairs based on the video evidence of an accident. Isn’t it worth the investment? I think it is.
We have decided to give the camera 4.5 out of 5. It contains many essential features which separate it from its competitors. Also, most of the reviews of the Rexing V1 dash camera has been positive and most customers are satisfied with the product.
You will not be disappointed with the video and audio quality at day or night. Many dash cameras don’t include stealth feature, which is required nowadays. Also, it has on/off button, unlike many other dash cameras we have reviewed so far.
It is recommended that you keep the camera connected to the charger all the time just in case. We were also impressed with the socket charger which came with an integrated USB port. Also, it does not shake a lot during driving.
Since some states in the U.S have laws for recording audio without permission, it might be a good idea to mute the microphone option.
Things to be considered before buying Rexing V1
Buying the right dash camera is a big challenge, especially when there are so many companies fighting for a piece of the dash camera market. This is why it is very important that you are buying the right camera. A poor quality dash camera can make you lose money than the benefit you. This is why you should always consider these things before buying any Dash camera, even if it is not the Rexing V1.Even I have to admit that not all Rexing V1 dash camera reviews are reliable.
The type of mount is also a factor. If the mount is the adhesive type, the camera won’t shake a lot during driving which is opposite for suction mount.
We have tested all the above features and found that the Rexing V1 dash camera contains almost all the above.
Q.How many minutes the 32 GB internal memory of the camera can record?
Ans: At 10980p, each 3-minute video will take up 300MB space. Overall, it can record 5-6 hours of video.
Ans: The power cord is very long. We suggest that you tuck the cord inside the trim at the upper part. It will take you a few tries to fix the position of your choice.
Ans: The unit does not come with an external memory card. You can buy one if want to. Also, the internal memory’s capacity is 32GB and can store 5-6 hours video.
Ans: The camera has its own metal detector to record acts of vandalism on the car. However, it should be connected to a constant power and the camera or car not stolen by carjackers.
Ans: Recent updates offered by Rexing supports more loop recording options. Length of each video clip is 3 minutes. It records every 3 minutes until the memory is full and new videos will always replace older files.
Like any other electronic products, it is not immune to flaws. Many critical reviews of the Rexing V1 also bear testament to that fact. Also, we expect that the next model will come with an inbuilt GPS since you will need to buy it additionally.
Judging from our reviews of the Racing V1, we can say for certain that the dash camera is a king for all four-wheeled vehicles out on the road. We can assure you that this is one of the best dashcams out in the market and is worth the try.
