Review of Rexing V1 HD Dashcam
Rexing V1 is a discreetly designed wedge shaped full HD car dashboard camera that uses H.264 compression technology to record high resolution, 1920x1080 pixel videos. It’s loaded with super high quality 170 degrees wide angle glass lens, 2.4 inches TFT LCD screen, WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) technology, multi-language support and several other features to give you complete peace of mind while driving your vehicle.
You can fix the camera on the windshield of your vehicle using a 3M adhesive mount that comes with it. However, you need to buy a micro SD memory card to save the recordings to. It supports a SD/TF card of up to 32 GB. The dash cam records videos in a loop of 3 minutes. A typical 1080 pixel video clip of 3 minutes takes about 300 MB of space on your memory card. Thus, a 32 GB card can record for over 320 minutes or 5 hours. Once the free space on your memory card gets exhausted, the cam will start recording afresh, overwriting the existing files, beginning with the oldest one. So, just one memory card is sufficient since it supports loop recording function.
Rexing V1 has an inbuilt G-Sensor that can auto detect an accident and lock the video clip to memory card all by itself. You can also manually lock a file by clicking on the OK button. This will send the file to the ‘protected’ folder so that it doesn’t get deleted or written over when your camera starts relooping when there is no more free memory left in the card.
Operating temperature of this dashcam ranges from 10 degrees Fahrenheit to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. This is based on the temperature test conducted by the manufacturers but they do not guarantee this. So, it is advisable to remove the camera when you are parking your vehicle in order to avoid any issues.
Don’t expect the internal battery of this car cam to last longer. At most it may give a backup of 5 minutes. That’s because it’s only meant for saving files in case of emergency. So, whenever you are using this cam, make sure it is connected to an external power source.
Rexing V1 features a reasonably stealth design, both in terms of size and color. It easily camouflages itself behind the rearview mirror on your windshield. The camera mount too is pretty thin and allows for a flat mount against the windshield.
The cam supports audio recording and also gives you the option to turn it off. It records loud and clear audio without any distortion. The quality of video recording too is great. It takes everything in focus and there are no soft or fuzzy areas. Night time recording does not match the quality of day time but that too is above average.
Rexing V1 dash cam also allows you to take still photos at the push of a button. It saves image files in JPG format and video files in MOV format. The recordings can be marked with date and time. The cam menu is easy to navigate. The camera supports USB function and comes with a USB cable.
Ideally, any physical or liquid damage to the camera should not cause it to malfunction. But in case it does, you should contact the manufacturers; they should repair it for you. They have you covered under a limited warranty for 1 year.
