What are dual dash cams?

Dual dash cams (also known as dual lens dash cams, dual-facing dash cams, or dual cameras) are a type of dash cam that is mounted on a vehicle’s windshield. In addition to a camera lens that faces the road ahead, these dash cams also include an inward-facing camera that captures in-cab activity.

3. Exterior Cameras: Mounted on the outside of the vehicle, providing a 360° view around the vehicle, helpful for eliminating blind spots.

4. Interior Cameras: Monitor activity inside a vehicle or trailer, useful for preventing cargo theft.

Dual Channel Dash Cam Q&A

Can I use a regular SD card for the dash cam?

Almost all dash cams use Secure Digital (SD) cards, but most tend to use microSD cards. Even if your dash cam only supports SD cards, SD adapters allow for the use of microSD cards.

Are there wireless dash cams available?

Wireless dash cams are those that support Wi-Fi connectivity. They can upload footage of your surroundings to cloud storage. If your camera is tampered with during an event, you can view the footage and ascertain the facts. However, this is only effective when the dash cam has an internet connection.

How much does a dash cam cost?

The price ranges from $25 to $300. The cost of a single in-car camera from YUWEI is $25, for quotes on multifunctional in-car cameras, you can contact (hello@Yuweitek.com).

Is a 128GB dash cam enough?

A 128GB SD card can effectively handle 4K dash cam footage, but it depends on the camera's bitrate and frame rate. 4K footage requires higher bitrates and frame rates, meaning the recording time on a 128GB SD card will be shorter compared to 1080p footage. However, for fleet tracking management, 1080p recording resolution is typically sufficient.

Will the dash cam record my location?

The YUWEI dash cam supports Global Positioning System (GPS) for tracking your location and speed, a gravity sensor for collision detection, and WiFi for transferring footage from the dash cam to your phone. It also has a parking mode, which automatically starts recording if your car experiences a collision while parked.
