Loop recording is a method of memory card storage which allows recording to be continuous once memory is full. It automatically overwrites the oldest files on the memory card, thus enabling it to record so as not missing any second recording.
Most of the sellers tell their customer Flash LED & IR light can help to light up the street, so customer gets a lots of LED flashlight, but finally, picture from DVR all like being painted with white mist. So, what can really improve quality of videos at night is: just focus on the camera with its Advanced Chip, Aperture & WDR, but not how many LED it equips. WDR achieves super clarity video recording even under weak lighting environment in night driving.
Built-in a very useful feature: G-Sensor with high sensitivity of impact, emergency lock up, auto save video recording. Whenever an event is detected, the camera will automatically mark the current footage for safekeeping, so as to ensure that it doesn’t accidentally get deleted by the loop recording.
From Cigarette Lighter: Most of the car cameras are mounted high behind rear-view mirror on the windscreen, but get their power from cigarette lighter far apart. Thus you need a cable at least 3.5m long that can neatly tuck away around the windscreen rather than having it dangling down the middle if you want to install in most discreet way.
From Fuse Box: Of course you can also connect cable directly to your car’s fuse box or internal wiring. Check your car’s user manual to find the correct wiring setup.
This critical function means that your camera automatically starts recording when you turn on vehicle engine. You don’t want to get into a situation where something happens that you'd like to keep the video of, just to find out that you forgot to turn your car camera on that day.
