- Whats in the box
Auto Express Recommended 2022 product DRV-A601W 4K Ultra HD dashcam. Auto Express said: "KENWOOD's DRV-A601W unit has some features that we really like from a dashcam. Chief among these is a magnetic mount, making it much easier to remove the camera to keep it safe or swap between cars. KENWOOD's online and smartphone viewing apps are also the easiest and most intuitive to use. In terms of footage, the KENWOOD's daytime video is exceptional when it's on smoother roads, as you'd expect from a 4K camera, and it copes well with rapidly changing light conditions."
4K Ultra HD recording - there's nothing better to capture the fine details - like a number plate. The DRV-A601W has a recording resolution of 3840 x 2160 - 8.3M pixels, 4 times the Full HD resolution (2.0M: 1920 x 1080), which allows it to reproduce more obscure images such as a licence plate detail. Connecting the optional rear camera (KCA-R200) makes it possible to record front and rear footage simultaneously.
The 3inch full-colour screen perfectly fits its camera without any loss of resolution. Allowing you to use the playback feature to review any footage captured.

I ve only recently had this installed but it's so much better than the previous one that I had, which was more expensive. Both front and rear cameras give very clear pictures/videos.
Great but if kit, just waiting for the kit to wire it in the car full time
Easy fitting and definitely worth the cost
Quality dash cams
Good quality front & rear dash cams. Software works well with no hassles once installed.
What an amazing product, installed it myself and it works perfectly does everything I needed it to. The images are crystal clear and already I’m noticing other drivers acting more responsibly around my car.
Arrived as described on website. It was at a discounted rate and the quality is a good deal for the price. its a must buy ..
Very good excellent picture
Perfect dash cam ,the best!!!!
This is the first expensive dash cam I've bought, and as soon as it arrives you can see you get what you pay for! Really good quality, but then I'd expect nothing less from Kenwood. I'm still using a Kenwood stereo system from 32 years ago, and it still works and sounds better than modern ones friends have bought!
So far so good!
The optional install kit is perfect with spares should you want to move windscreen sticky to another car, the kit allows you to plug into existing fuse with piggyback adapter, so, all easily removed too. Kit comes with SD card, so nothing extra needed to complete install. Camera operates, the app would have been nice to have been bluetooth based rather than a wireless ethernet. Overall, very happy with kit!
