Vantrue N4 Dash Cam Firmware Update (Specially for Japan)
( 28 Reviews )
Great cameraReviewed in the United States
I feel much safer having this camera because I know that if I get hit by another vehicle, I have proof of what transpired. It takes very clear video day and night. The unit is very light and I like that it can be turned a little to accommodate the vehicle. Only complaint is that the suction cup isn't the greatest, but my fiancé does not have a problem with his so that could be user error. I used 3m double sided padded tape to stick it to my windshield though and now it works just fine.
New rideshare dashcam kingReviewed in the United States
If you're a rideshare driver or just want complete coverage of your vehicle front back and inside in one package, this is the camera for you.
This is an upgrade to me from the N2 Pro's 1080p30fps front and cabin cameras w/night vision.
1440p front, 1080p cabin and 1080p rear all running at 30fps
You can run the cameras in various combinations (front+cabin+rear, front+cabin, front+rear, front only) and with various resolutions from 720p to 1080p up to 2592x1520p(front only mode) the options are nice but if you're looking for a 3 channel camera setup then you're running all 3 at highest resolution which is the 1440x1080x1080.
Picture quality is the same great clear detailed image as the n2 pro and better. I'm still experimenting with the exposure settings up and down for day vs night brightness.
Night vision in cabin at nighttime sees front and rear passengers well.
Audio quality is great and plays over all 3 video recordings in the files. (Bass in music does get blown out a bit with higher volume or bass turned up)
Install took me 10-15 minutes to run the wires and hide them in a 17 nissan rouge with plenty of extra wire.
Loop recording of infinity, 1, 3, and 5 mins. IR on, off or auto, audio on or off, g sensor high, medium, low, off, parking mode is here also (with $15 hardwire kit sold separately). GPS mount to track location and speed is available also for this camera setup (sold separately)
Time, date, mph, license plate, gps and vantrue logo stamps are available to turn on and off in video recordings.
The viewfinder shows you a triple view(1 large view with 2 small pip views) of all 3 cameras when the screen is on and you can switch which camera is in the large view.
Overall I am highly pleased and impressed again with Vantrues products. I've been running the N2 Pro for over 2 yrs for personal use and driving for Lyft. Now I have even more coverage in the rear, higher resolution out front and over a day or twos recording space with the 256GB microsd card I ordered from Vantrue.
Only thing missing is wifi/bluetooth and 60fps+ on all 3 cameras which 1. this is the first 3 channel all in one I've even heard of and would require 3 individual cameras to accomplish 60fpsx3cameras. 2. I'm ok with no wifi/bluetooth as it's faster to transfer data over USB 3 . Also this uses usb c connections, WIN!
I really love this company and their products and pricing. Customer service is also A++
Take a look at the pictures and videos I've posted also.
Highly Recommend the N4Reviewed in the United States
This camera has exceptional video quality and I’ve enjoyed having it so far. I had a minor issue with a cord but it was resolved quickly with customer service via Instagram the same day I messaged them about it. If you’re looking for a great camera to cover both the front and rear of your vehicle, I would highly recommend the Vantrue N4!
Product impression: It does not look cheap. It’s well built and the outside feels like rubberized. I left it in a car through very hot summer and still no issue.
Very good resolution: See the photos. Both interior and exterior resolutions are good. Interior of my car is black leather and the person is wearing dark blue jacket but the camera still shows a good image. I redacted the face but details are pretty good. Vehicle license plate numbers can be read on 1080P (outside)/1080P(inside). The menu also offers a higher resolution but then it does not offer dual camera views.
Easy setup: Good suction cup/holder is very steady and not shaky. Well built, plug and play as the factory setting is already good for most users. Menu and buttons are simple and easy to understand. Good user interface.
Excellent/responsive customer: Customer support by email is very responsive and genuinely interested in resolving a customer’s concerns and issues. It generally takes 1 or 2 days to response but they do get back to you. They also don’t hesitate to offer exchange a defective dash cam under warranty after trouble shootings.
Optional GPS: Quick fix GPS antenna and enables speed of a vehicle stamps on video files.
Suggestion: Use good quality micro SD cards made for frequent write/delete like SanDisk High Endurance Video Monitoring. Check once in a while to make sure the files are not corrupted. Reformat every 1 or 2 weeks. Keep one extra SD card as backup. Throw away and get a new one if SD cards keep corrupted or turns on/off the dash cam. Also, always use OEM cable and charger. Connect USB directly to the dash cam rather than through the holder or GPS antenna if you are having any power issue. Update firmware only if necessary so that you know if the dash cam experiences some issues you can spot the issue.
Safety matters. We believe a dash cam with top quality and strong performance is very necessary for every vehicle driver nowadays. That's what we do at VANTRUE, developing high end dash cams and providing top level services.
