Today’s #ToolTuesday pick is a tool that nearly everyone should have in their car these days: a dash cam. Daniel’s pick is the Rexing V1P+, which he recently installed in his car.
Driving is the most dangerous thing we all do—and we do it every day. It seems like drivers are just getting more distracted and less considerate, pulling some seriously risky maneuvers on the road. But having a dash cam isn’t just to record those “you have to see it to believe it” moments.
The footage could be helpful if you’re in the unfortunate circumstance of getting into an accident and need a way to show what happened from your perspective. (Though we’re going to be very clear that we’re not offering legal advice here.)
D chose the Rexing V1P+ because he wanted something he could pick up in store. The + model is exclusive to Best Buy, though Rexing has several versions on Amazon, including the one we link below. On the Best Buy website, the V1P+ had plenty of great reviews, suggesting an easy setup, fast installation and longevity as key attributes. D can attest to the super easy setup.
The V1P+ has front and rear cameras. The front facing camera records in 1080p, with 170 degree viewing angle. The rear facing camera records in 720p but also boasts a 170 degree viewing angle. With a total of 340 degrees, these cameras combined catch most of the action around the vehicle.
This great dash cam setup has all the features you’d want: wide viewing angle, Gforce sensor that locks recordings when an impact is detected, and option to manually tag clips for ease of viewing later.
While not cream of the crop, it’s also not a base model. It sits squarely in the middle, providing a good balance between cost and needed features.
