Does your dash cam still let you watch footage, configure settings, and manage your camera on a tiny 2-inch screen? It might be time to take a break from that. The good news is modern dash cam manufacturers like BlackVue, Thinkware, and VIOFO have begun redesigning dash cameras without a screen, so you can focus on the road while providing a broader and more cinematic dash cam footage through your own phone screen.
This is possible through the dash camera’s dedicated smartphone apps, which can be downloaded via Google Play or App Store. This app allows drivers to do a variety of functions such as streaming, downloading, and even sharing the clips to other users or to your social media networks. To make use of the smartphone app, you will need to connect your dash camera to your smartphone via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection.
