Review of AUBBC Full HD Dash Camera
The AUBBC DashCam is one of the cheapest full HD dash cameras for sale out there coming in at around $30 and has 140 degrees high quality wide angle lens. It records videos at a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels @30 fps and 1280×720 pixels @60 fps. The camera supports (and comes with) Micro SD memory card of up to 32 GB. Since it also has the loop recording feature like most other dash cams, card memory should not be a problem; it will automatically start rewriting old files once the storage space in the card gets exhausted. While in loop recording mode, you can choose to record videos in lengths of 1, 3 or 5 minutes. However, you can turn off this feature if you want to record longer videos.
The inbuilt G-sensor automatically detects any unusual motion or jerk in the vehicle and starts recording the incident. The recorded file is saved and locked to prevent it from getting deleted during relooping. Apart from recording videos, you can also use the AUBBC dash cam for taking photos. It also has an inbuilt microphone for recording audio. The TFT LCD display of 2.31 inches is good enough for live view as well as to play back the recorded clips and images. You can turn off the screen completely while driving or for 3, 5 or 10 minutes by entering into the system settings.
This dashboard camera is powered by a built-in battery that can be charged through the USB port. However, the camera will turn on only when you start the car, and it will turn off when you turn off the ignition.
When you unbox the camera for the first time, you may not be able to switch it on. Don’t panic! That’s most probably because the battery might have run out of power by the time it reaches you. Just charge it by connecting to your car charger and you should be able to ‘wake it up’. However, be sure to use the supplied charger for connecting the camera; using a USB cable or a third party charger may damage the device since the voltage from these may not be fully compatible.
The camera is small in size and saves you from unwanted attention. It is easy to use and offers good value for money. Video recording is clear and audio quality too is great. You can easily read vehicle license plates when you play back the video on your computer. Night recording too is surprisingly good.
Resolution for still images is 12M pixels. You can set the photo quality to fine, normal or economy. However, there is no zoom feature. The photo quality is decent but you may not be able to enlarge the images enough to make out the license plate numbers.
AUBBC dash cam is designed especially for cars and smaller vehicles. So, Uber and Lyft drivers should not have any problem using this camera. However, if you want to use it for larger vehicles like trucks and lorries, make sure to connect a pressing cable, else the camera may burn off.
