In places where parking lot scrapes and insurance fraud are common, dash cams are increasingly becoming a must-have, and are especially popular among those who drive often for work, drive fleet vehicles or who lease new cars. The Transcend Drivepro 200 is an easy-to-use, reliable dash cam that offers continuous recording with a wide field of view and a bright f/2.0 lens. Powered by the car’s A/C socket, the Drivepro 200 in-car video recorder also comes with a small internal battery to record the date and time for accurate video timestamps.
Usefully, the Drivepro 200 offers Wi-Fi connectivity, making it easy to review, upload, store or delete and overwrite footage. It comes with either a 16 GB or 32 GB SD card, and in its default setting, the dash cam saves each minute of video footage as an individual file. File size is adjustable to three and five minute settings as well.
The Drivepro 200 dash cam records audio and video, but what makes it stand out, aside from its simplicity and ease of use, is its wide 160º field of view and bright, high-quality 1080p footage. It even records usable video at night thanks to its rather bright f/2.0 max aperture lens.
A g-sensor detects impacts and automatically locks the last bits of footage to protect the records of any accident or crash. A handy button on the side of the camera allows you to manually engage this emergency lock mode.
The Drivepro 200 from Transcend is one of the easiest dash cams to set up, and, thanks to its ability to operate reliably under a wide range of conditions, it is one of the most useful as well.
The camera includes a free app for iOS or Android that lets users instantly view and download footage. It also facilitates easy sharing of the dash cam’s footage via social networks, email and other apps. A 2.4-inch color LCD screen on the camera itself features menus and playback options too, and automatically turns off while driving. It’s offered with either suction cup or adhesive windshield mounts, making it easy to secure into place.
