Good for the price, works well in fair conditions but don’t expect miracles and check the speed measurement. To get video working on my pc with the software supplied i had to find and download a codec and the first one i tried was blocked by my anti-virus so users may need a certain level of computing expertise and don’t try this if you don’t have anti-virus on your computer. I need to check the displayed speed with a separate gps, as the speed displayed on the video footage is about 10% slower than the speed displayed by the playback software, and both are a little lower than i’m expecting – annoying if they’ve decided to make it look as if people who are speeding are not speeding; for the law-abiding driver using video as evidence after a crash could lead to a false prosecution for lane-hogging if you’re actually doing 72 m. And the video shows you’re doing 60 in the middle lane. I know my car speedometer over-reads but not by 20% (previously checked with a map and stopwatch and a gps). Picture quality is good but not as good as the more expensive top-of-the-range nextbase which is a strong competitor here in the uk – the lack of polaroid means you get some reflections from the asus. Picture looks a bit pixelated and hd is not much better than the lower resolution – sometimes can read license plates but only really if the vehicle is quite close. In good light, about 50% of oncoming traffic plates can be read on a single-carriageway road at speeds of around 30 m. , fewer at higher speed which is perhaps slightly less than the nextbase. It seems you get what you pay for and this camera is a reasonably competitive priced and i’m keeping it because the slight improvement in picture quality for the nextbase (which i returned to the shop) is not worth paying 50% extra in my opinion.

The only reason that i haven’t given this five stars is because it turns itself off & back on again with annoying regularity. It isn’t the power plug – that is a good fit in the cigarette lighter socket, so i assume that it is the device itself. Other than that, it is a good device – the quality of the recording is excellent, & the fact that it is linked to a gps track is also brilliant.

ASUS Reco Classic Car Dash Cam, 1080p Full HD, 140 Degree Wide-Angle Lens, Day/Night Recording

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology ensures the DVR to catch every detail in your drive no matter it is in limited or high contrasted lighting environments.
  • The external GPS records the whole driving track. Using the bundled PC player, the playing video connects Google map through the internet and shows the driving track correspondingly.
  • The built-in G-sensor triggers emergency record and auto file protection. Manual file protection is another choice for recording the moment that a collision event occurs.
  • Has passed all CE/FCC/BSMI/CCC certificates, ensuring it won’t have signal interference with other car-used devices.
  • The 140 degree wide view angle allows the DVR to record every detail from front view with no blind spot. Vehicles coming from both right and left side can be clearly recorded.

First impressions: easy to set up (more so when i read the instructions) it hadn’t occured to me that the output files are operating system dependant. I run mac so cannot use the media player but since the files load into iphoto without problem this suits me. Apparently one can trace the journey on a map using the media player; why anyone would want to do that escapes me. Once i have finalised on the settings i dont expect to look at the video files unless they are needed for insurance purposes or in case of an accident. I am wondering about buying another one of these to look out of the back of the car, but want a bit more experience with it first.

Superb quality, easy to use dash cam. Excellent quality camera, easy to set up and great field of vision. The supplied power cable is easily long enough for you to be able to hide it all the way back to the 12v supply.

I’ve had a couple of dash cams. This one was the easiest to set up. The others had barely intelligible instructions and what i could understand was vague. I was up and running with this asus reco within minutes.

ASUS Reco Classic Car Dash Cam, 1080p Full HD, 140 Degree Wide-Angle Lens, Day/Night Recording : Excellent purchase – better than the nextbase dash cam – 100% better in picture quality and userablity. I have had the product now for 4 days and its so easy to use with excellent product guide and really easy to install and use app both available to use on android and ios. I have previously used the next base pro and found that to be very clunky and slow however the reco is fast and easy and provides excellent images. *excellent value for money*the features of the product are brilliant such as hdr – i gave this over to my boyfriend to use on a weekend car drive in the night and the picture quality was perfect. It was also surprising at how much it included within the angle of footage for such a small camera. This is a must for any long drive drivers and also is a excellent and affordable product which does everything and more that you ask of it. Definitely a must ahead of any other dash cam – well done asus.

I’ve never had any problems with this – the quality is great, it folds up nicely when not in use, easy to operate.

If the seller is reading this is a great multi functional dash camera which i do love. However, sometimes my asus reco switches off after about 20 seconds but then turns on again. Random but it happens more often than not. I have tried 3 different 64gb micro sd cards in the reco and this still happens. Also when i switch in the asus reco the light above my screen goes green for a few seconds and then red. I presume this light should stay green if configured correctly?.

First impressions of the product: feels too plasticky as far as i am concerned. Car charger cable long enough for me to conceal in the car via the driver side and connect to the cigarette lighter. Good quality videos in various conditions (i. Daylight, night, drizzly etc. ) at the time of my review i have not tested the forward collision and lane departure warning systems. One snag to report, for some unknown reason a glitch switched off and on again the dash cam – i believe this is a known issue already reported by other users. I updated the firmware to the latest available from asus website and this has not solved the issue.

Suction cup fitting, easy peasy lemon squeezie. After spending four hours on a very simple installation, i am still unable to attach it to the window screen with the suction cup. I have cleaned the cup, cleaned the screen, wet the cup with water, spat on the cup, thrown the cup down the garden. Now i have had a nice dinner and calmed down i am going to try sticking it on the screen with blue tac. If that fails i am going to smash it to pieces. No no, calm michael, omm omm ommm will review again later.

The quality of the video is very good. The quality of the video is very good. However, it now reboots every 45 seconds, despite using a 64gb card, so it seems pointless using it. It is off more times than on. Have tried not using gps and this makes no difference. All in all, a very frustrating purchase. Can see someone has written a review about updating firmware, will look into this but really it should have been despatched totally up to date.

Goluk T1 Smart Car Dash Cam Camera : which produced great quality images

We bought this to replace the failing unit in our driving school car as we specifically wanted a camera without a screen and with a low profile permanent bracket to keep the lens close to the screen for better picture quality – sucker mounts can’t do this. Set up was …

Snooper DVR-1HD Mini HD Dash Cam, let down.

For the measurement of the camera and the reduced value, i am impressed at the high-quality. Photos in both equally day and night time are extremely distinct. The gps locks on pretty swiftly, even though in some cases does wander at times, putting me somewhat off the highway, but i …

Transcend DrivePro 220 Onboard DashCam : into the darkness

It is really a great digital camera and ready to use out of the box. My initially dash cam so hard to compare versus nearly anything else. Not certain i would go with the lane departure or automobile in entrance protection characteristic yet again. The lane departure goes off when …
