What We Like
What We Don't Like
Owning a dash cam can help to protect you and your insurance premiums when it comes to a collision or accident dispute. While this is certainly the most popular reason for owning a dash cam, it isn’t the only thing they’re good for.
Dash cams are great for recording all sorts of things, from reckless drivers to stunning sceneries (it’s a GoPro for a car!). As such, we decided to take a look at a dash cam from Rexing. As one of the best selling dash cam providers in America, we wanted to know what makes their V1LG dual dash cam such a popular choice.
Rexing V1LG Dual Channel Car Dash Cam Review
Rexing is a company that prides itself on providing quality and care above all else. As an extremely customer focused company, Rexing has received feedback with their V1LG being a powerful dual-channel camera that packs in features with many exciting possibilities.
Who Is This Product For?
This dash cam is great for anyone who is worried about liability issues arising from accidents on the road. Due to the dual camera, it can record footage from the dashboard and rear view mirror at the same time, ensuring that no matter where the collision happens, you’ll have back up evidence in case of a dispute.
With its large storage capacity, this dash cam would also be great for outdoor enthusiasts. It's like having GoPro footage from inside your car, at all times, when you’re on the road!
Upon arrival, your package will contain your Rexing V1LG dashboard camera, a further HD rear camera, and two power cables measuring 12 feet and 20 feet. You will also receive some 3M adhesive mounts to secure the cameras in place, a USB cable, and a user manual.
Overview of Features
Here are the things we found on the Rexing V1LG:
- Dual Channel
The V1LG model from Rexing can record footage from the front and back of your car, simultaneously, via the use of two high-quality cameras. This ensures that you don’t miss a thing in the unfortunate case of an accident.
- Discreet Personal Witness
The low-profile design allows discreet recording which may come in handy as a personal witness. Recordings from dash cams make reliable and credible evidence when it comes to liability disputes and false claims that can occur after a collision or accident. Not knowing that you have a dash cam, another driver might think they can get away with blaming you for the accident.
- Superb Camera Quality
The front camera captures crystal clear, 1080P HD video at 30 frames per second. Its wide dynamic range finely tunes the light exposure, allowing for great night vision.
That means that the image quality will be superior, even in low-light conditions. The rear camera isn’t quite as good at 720P, but will still give you a great HD recording from both ends of the road.
- GPS Module
We love the fact that this dash cam has a built-in GPS module. You don’t find it on all dash cams, but it’s a really handy feature to have as it logs certain information along with all of your recordings, such as time, date, location, and speed.
There is no need for a separate accessory, as well. Also, together with the cameras, there is great proof that you were driving diligently and safely, as well as following required speed limits and more.
- Storage Capacity and Compatibility
The recording method is efficient since when the storage limit is reached on the SD card, it will overwrite older footage. You also don’t have to worry about losing footage from collisions since this dash cam has built-in accident auto-detection.
When the built-in gravity sensor is triggered, the current video footage is locked. Once a section of the video is locked, it will be kept protected, ensuring that you have that all-important footage, when needed.
The device supports UHS-1, Class 10 or higher, Micro SD cards. If you want to purchase this dash cam, then be aware that SanDisk Ultra SD cards are not supported. If you want to use SanDisk, then get their High Endurance MicroSD. Also recommended are the Canvas Go! and Canvas React MicroSD cards from Kingston.
You can use an SD with capacity up to 256 GB in this device (a lot more than most!), which is great as it can store a lot of footage before looping back around and recording over the oldest footage first. If you go on a road trip, you may want to store a larger amount of footage to keep as cherished memories.
How to Use
The V1LG dash cam is really easy to install. First, you need to decide where you want to position your cameras. Before mounting them, plug the cameras in.
That way, you can check the angle of the camera, making sure that you can see as much of the road as possible, without obscuring your field of vision too much. You’ll ideally need a person to help you position the camera at the rear view mirror.
Once you have the correct position, then you should mount them using the adhesive that is supplied. You can also choose to purchase suction mounts separately.
Keep the dash cam plugged in at all times. The devices will automatically power on and start recording once you start your car engine, and they will automatically power off when the engine is shut off.
If you were looking for a more affordable option, then you could consider the Rexing V1 Dash Cam. This dash cam is front camera only, so you lose out on the rear view footage, but save a lot of money in doing so.
The dash cam has the same discreet design as the V1LG and the same superb camera quality of the front camera. In fact, it’s pretty much the same product but without the second camera. As the function is changed slightly, the display and operation are slightly different, but definitely a high-quality, and superb product!
We absolutely love the Rexing V1LG Dual Camera Dash Cam. If it is out of your budget then the V1 is certainly a great contender. However, having the safety and coverage of the dual-channel cameras offers better peace of mind since accidents aren’t always caused at the front end of your vehicle.
