Good things about this dash cam:
The Rexing V1 has a high daytime image quality for the price. It’s simple design and black coloring give it a “stealthy” appearance when either mounted behind the rearview mirror or on the dashboard. Setup is straightforward, making it easy to install and use immediately.
A mount is included with the product and is easily attached and detached. It has an automatic on/off feature which activates the camera when the vehicle is started. The dash cam has an easy to navigate menu and a clear audio. Users also have the option to turn off the audio.
The loop recording is set at three minutes, but can be adjusted to be made longer. The parking feature will start to record if the car is hit while parked. The Rexing V1 also comes with a one year limited warranty. RexingUSA has garnered a reputation for good customer service and typically responds to customer questions and complaints within twenty four hours of their receiving them.
Less desirable things
While the daytime image quality is high, the cameras night vision capabilities need improvement. There have also been customer complaints of video compression being unreliable, and that in order to pick up license plates the camera needs to be very close to the other vehicle for a discernable image.
The internal battery has a very short lifespan if it is not hardwired to the vehicle itself; the battery is intended as an emergency power source only. The camera will need an external power source when in use.
The screen can be difficult to view unless looked at straight on. Drivers who would like to have a constant visual through the camera may find it inconvenient to have it centrally located on the dash. Otherwise this angle can be difficult to be achieved with the included mount which while easy to attach/detach, is fairly static. It is also difficult to find different after-market mounts for the V1.
It’s also important to mention that the V1 does not come with a memory card included and one will have to be purchased separately.
On the Whole:
Overall, the V1 by Rexing is a good piece of equipment for the price. Despite some issues with adequate mounting and night imaging capabilities this model is simple, easy to setup, and effective.
