New Dash Cam


Vantrue N2 Pro...Amazon prime, ordered it Saturday and it was here on Sunday...the only way to shop.

I don't have the GPS hooked up yet and haven't messed with the color settings, but the menu is pretty intuitive and easy to use.

Thanks to our resident draft master Andy for hooking me up with a link to some free partitioning software, I was able to format a 64gb micro sd card to the Fat32 file system so the camera would recognize it. With that size card, I should be able to record 8 to 10 hours before it rewrites...way more than i'll ever need.

Tried to post a 3min. clip, but the file was too large.

Re: New Dash Cam


I looked into dash cams not long ago (been watching accidents on youtube, lol), I think everyone in Russia has one. They almost all had problems of some kind. Let us know how that one works out.

Ho hum. Are your workers really such bad drivers that you need this? I don't get the need except for maybe playing it back on a Saturday night with a bowl of popcorn. Ha ha.

If you get into an accident and it's their fault a video helps a bunch.

You can probably turn it into a youtube video and then post it.

Depends more on if you are still conscious and can get it off the windshield and under the seat before anyone notices.

You're assuming you're still conscious.
