Small dash camera with a great powerReviewed in the United States on July 17, 2022
Vatrue E1 Dash Camera supports wifi connection to the Vantrue mobile app and the camera also allows voice control.Vantrue is taking seriourly the dashcam market. The camera package feels nice. I added an unbox video for the content:- The Vantrue E1 dashcam- A magnetic mount. Very convinient if you want to take the camera with you and connect it to your PC.- A 12V car charger- A USB C cable. It's mainly use for data transfer to your PC.- 2 Electrostatic stickers. Apply the sticker in your widshield and the use fix the camera mount. Don't try to fix the camera mount directly to the widshield.- A wireless remote control. It's has the option to mute/unmute audio, lock the video, and take a picture if you hold the lock video button.Also we may found in the box:- Some warning stickers: Protected by Vantrue- A soft cloth. Convienient at the time before fix the electrostatic sticker in the windshield.- A crowbar to hide the cable.- The user manual. Please, read it first!My experience with the E1 camera.What I liked:- Small size. It doesn't block your field vision and you get less distracted. You can use a voice command 'Turn off screen' to turn the screen off and reduce any kind of distraction.- Wifi connection with the Vantrue App. It's the best option to look at the videos and play them using your mobile. It's easy to use and the app do not ask to create an account to use this feature.- Night videos are amazing. This is one of the strong features.- The remote control. You can stick it in your steerwheel and have the most common function you may need when you are driving: mute the camera, lock the video or take a picture.- Voice control feature. Do not requiere a voice activation command, only say "take photo" and it will perform the operation. The commands I have tested with are:"Lock video", "take photo", " turn off screen", " mute camera"The voice command are available also if you have muted the camera.What I think Vantru should do better:- Give a list of the possible voice command. It has been a discovering process found the commands.Who you should get this camera?If you are in a marked looking a camera with a high resolution: (2592 x 1944P 30 FPS), a wide angle of 160 degrees, a nice quality night videos f1.8 plus the extra of having a voice control, a remote control and wifi app, Vantrue E1 offers a good product.
