It is a Full HD camera recording at 30fps with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. It delivers amazing footage quality and comes with a 170 degrees wide angle view that covers almost the entire dashboard.
The other quality features like WDR, HDR along with 6 Glass Lens and Superior Night Vision contribute to better recording quality throughout the day or even for night driving.
It also comes with an in-built GPS system that keeps recording the path of the vehicle and comes with a dash cam viewer software which enables you to view the entire path traveled on Google Maps or Bing Maps.
The camera also has a microphone which records audio hand in hand with the video and comes with a speaker and a 2.7 inch LCD screen that enables you to view and listen to the footage that has been recorded by the camera.
The camera starts recording as soon as the car starts moving and also has a motion detection feature that can be enabled when the car is parked to record the footage whenever any kind of movement is detected around the car. This feature is useful to provide additional security to the car when parked.
If somebody intentionally or accidentally rams your car, at least you can get a glimpse of who did it, instead of scratching your head, wondering what in the world happened!
A 32 GB Micro SD card is also provided with the camera which comes with an auto loop feature that saves new footage and automatically deletes old footage for preserving memory space. However it locks the footage recorded when the G sensor is activated to prevent it from being deleted. The Micro SD slot supports cards up to 64 GB.
The camera also has a screenshot capture button that enables it to capture photographs on one click of a button whenever we want to and comes with a USB cable to help us access the footage through our laptops or Television set.
The camera is easy to fix and set up which makes it hassle free and easy to use.
The light provided on the camera for night vision purposes usually just reflects back from the windscreen of the car and does not contribute much to increasing the night vision quality. The night vision of the camera therefore depends largely on the headlights of the vehicle.
Also there may be a small glitch in the plate number feature where the camera does not save the identity of the vehicle and switches back to default once the camera is turned off.
Falcon F170HD DashCam costs $140.
