- WHATS IN THE BOX
The DRV-A501W Wide Quad HD dash cam has 1.8 times as many pixels as Full HD. With its 3.7 megapixel CMOS sensor, the DRV-A501W captures Wide Quad HD video at 30fps.
A Polarised Filter helps to reduce dashboard reflections and glare plus improves contrast performance. We are all used to wearing polarised sunglasses on sunny days; these are designed to reduce sun glare and reflections to help us see better. The DRV-A501W dashcam uses this technology to ensure clear contrasted recording results. Ensuring information such as number plates are not obscured by windscreen reflections, sun glare, etc.
Instantly view high-quality videos and images you have captured on the DRV-A501W's 3.0" full-colour LCD screen without any loss of resolution. Other features include HDR - High Dynamic Range reduces dark & light contrasts. 3-Axis G-Sensor that detects outside force, and GPS adds location data.

Appears to be doing the job.
Ordered and arrived within 2 days, very impressed. Have had it professionally fitted, the phone app takes a bit of getting used to,so will reserve judgement on that for the time being. Hopefully I have set it up so that it automatically over rides old footage as instructions were not that clear as to how that works.

Excellent quality product.
Very impressed with this Dash Cam. Picture quality v good and it is easy to remove from its holder by way of the magnet system. The polarising filter comes with the Dash Cam and eliminates glare from the sun and from other causes of light reflections.
Only just been installed, but all working well

DRV-501 Pro Bundle
Excellent product. If using a 256g card, please ensure to make sure you get a card that’s compatible with the camera, not all so cards are equal.
Really happy with my dashcam. Fitting was really simple although my particular vehicle (VW Touareg) fought me a fair bit when it came to routing the cables due to the curtain airbags the actual connecting was simple. The picture quality is good, unit is easy to operate and the app seems to work well (must be Wi-Fi connection). All in all I’m very happy.

Great piece of kit, used the hot wire set which came with the order and had plenty of cable and clips. Seems to be working well at the moment, reasonable quality on the screen too
Got this set up professionally with the hardwire kit, Installer said they were good dashcams. Very easy to use, will do the job.
