As you shop for your next dash cam, it’s easy to get lost with all the different options and variations. While most people want a simple to use and easy to set up the unit, there’s one key feature that a lot of buyers tend to forget.
WiFi in our everyday products allows for us to connect our smartphones, computers and even TVs to the Internet, which in turn gets us high-speed data connections for the most up to date information. In a dash cam, that concept is very similar; it allows the user to connect the camera to a smartphone. This will give the customer access to view footage of the dash cam and even make changes to the settings of the unit. This is very useful when you are out on the road, as everything can be accessed without the need of a computer. In the case of an accident, you can view footage on the spot and show it to the police or other parties.
Connecting the dash cam is simple by enabling WiFi on both the dash cam and the smartphone and connecting the two using a free app available in the App Store or the Google Play Store. Using the intuitive app the user can align the camera angle, configure dash cam settings like enabling parking mode or even set the video resolution. One thing to note, WiFi dash cams does not mean the camera has to connect to a WiFi network. Instead, the dash cam can simply connect to your smartphone directly (think of it as a Bluetooth connection).
Some popular options for WiFi-enabled dash cams are the Thinkware F800 Pro, BlackVue DR750S and even the BlackSys Ch-200. New for 2018 is the BlackVue DR590W-1CH and DR590W-2CH. These dash cams take the WiFi options to a more affordable dash cam range. No matter which dash cam you’re looking for, we have the right one for you. Please feel free to contact us here.
