VIOFO has been known to design dash cams with built-in screens such as the A119 V3, A129, and A229 series. If you’re the type of driver who prefers having a more discreet, and screenless front-channel dash cam, you will appreciate how the new WM1 is built.
Among the VIOFO dash cams we offer, the WM1 is the tiniest. Designed like a tube, the single-camera WM1 dash cam’s overall dimensions are only 3.87 inches long, 1.04-inch thick, and 1.21-inch in height. For its total width, it's somehow close to the size of a 12V car charger. Now that’s small!
For its lens, the WM1 has a 60-degree rotatable camera mount attached to the back of the dash cam, which saves space when compared to dash cams with top mounts. This improved design enables easier hidden installation as well as multiple angles to suit your needs, allowing for an optimal viewing angle in a variety of mounting positions and vehicles.
The main unit has four buttons: REC, MIC, Wi-Fi, and the One-Click Emergency Lock Button, which is critical in securing footage in the event of an accident. VIOFO also included a Type-C power port, which was placed in the dash cam mount rather than the camera to make it more visually appealing when installed.
While this is unseen, one more thing that VIOFO added to the WM1 dash cam is the Voice Notification system. This new feature notifies you of events in parking mode when you return to the vehicle, and the current states of the camera.
The VIOFO WM1 is comparable to the A119 V3 - captures 2K, front-only, built-in supercapacitor, and designed to be discreet - although the WM1 is easier to hide and install as it doesn’t have a screen like the A119.
