I came to know about Dash cameras recently. I own an action camera myself so I thought that dash camera was something similar to an action camera. When I saw that the z-edge z3 dash cam has its own motion detector, I had to check the online manual to verify it. Not only that, I decided to buy a Dash camera afterward and the z-edge-z3 was my first choice.
You can use a Dash camera to record an event which leads up to an accident. There are thousands of people who lives are affected due to accident every day. Often they are deprived of insurance benefits and end up losing a lot of money in the process. Since it comes with a motion detector, carjackers won’t be able to steal your car easily.
What is z-edge z3 dash camera?
A Dash camera is very similar to a surveillance camera since it can record both video and audio. These cameras are not known for their video or quality rather for the role a video recording play after an incident has occurred.
Many people don’t want to invest in a dash camera since it is not something used regularly. However, people make this mistake often and pay the price after a car wreck occurs. The problem gets worse when the vehicle ends up being fully wrecked and the insurance company is not willing to cover your expenses without adequate proof.
Voted as the best Dash camera by online magazine ‘Wirecutter’ in 2016, it has earned a lot of positive reviews in recent months. The Z3 will give better and more enjoyable experience than its predecessor the Z2. The award is a testament to its impressive video and audio quality and has taken innovation and reliability to a new level.
History of the z-edge z3 dash camera
It was released back in the year 2016 made by the American company Zero Edge Technology LLC. The Dash cameras are manufactured in China, not in the U.S. If you go to the website of the company, you will see that they manufacture and sell automotive and household electronic products which are used every day.
We were initially confused when we were looking at the history of the company of the z-edge z3 dash camera since we could not find any information on its production premises in the U.S. Despite the confusion, the Z3 is worth considering since its successor Z2 plus has also earned positive reviews from its users.

Q . I heard that an enhanced version of the Z3 was released in early 2017. I would like to know more about the new model.
Ans: You are referring to the Z3 Plus, an upgraded version of the z-edge z3 which includes new generation Umbrella A12 chip and also highest configurations in terms of video and audio quality. The Z3 plus has better night time view and image quality. The maximum angle has increased by 10 degrees to 155 in the Z3 plus. It will give better performance and is more reliable and the picture quality will be better at nighttime. Also, the maximum internal storage capacity has been increased to 128 GB, which was 64 GB for Z3.
Q.Is there any problem if I use my dashboard to mount the camera rather than the windscreen?
Answer: We will recommend not to do that since you will need to buy additional equipment such as U bracket to access the buttons of function.
Q.Why is the camera saying that speed of the card is low when it is as high as 80 fps?
Ans: The low speed is your car’s write speed in MB/s. In most cases, the read speed is unnecessary. Use the software ‘CrystalDiskMark’ to determine your card’s actual speed.
Answer: According to the manual of the Z-edge-z3, the auto -turn on feature of the dash camera takes around 3 seconds to activate.
The price of the dash camera is in lieu of its performance. It includes all necessary features required of a dash camera except for a rear view recording option. In many cases, car accidents occur from behind so rear view recording is very important. Keep in mind that it does not have GPS or Wi-Fi options before buying. The audio quality is above average but it is not HD quality.
We have found the customer service to be excellent and also there is a 30-day money back guarantee for quality if purchased directly from the buyer. If you want to know more about the dash camera, refer to the manual of the z-edge-z3.
