Why buy a dash cam?
A dash cam provides a record of an accident and proves you weren't the driver in the wrong with video proof to save your insurance from increasing. Get out of an unwarranted ticket by proving you did not break the law by playing back footage on the dash cam to law enforcement or to show as evidence in court. This dash cam is much smaller than the average dash cam, making it extremely portable and easy to store away in your car's glove compartment or at home.

What kind of resolution can this dash cam produce?
The 1080p Full HD resolution will clearly capture any incident that occurs. With a wide angle lens of 120 degrees you will capture everything that happened on camera. This is great for producing evidence to insurance companies or in court to prove you were not at fault. This will help you win your case and stop your insurance rate increasing.

Enhanced night vision
Have no worries about driving at night or on early winter mornings with the infrared night vision. In case of an accident you will be able to film it all with the RAC dash cam. With the infrared video camera the footage will be as clear as day if you were to use it as evidence.

How do I store footage from the camera?
The dash cam comes with an 8GB microSD card. However if you are planning on taking a long journey or you use your vehicle often you can upgrade the microSD card. This dash cam will support any microSD card up to 32GB, class 6 to 10 - for speedy saving transfer times. With the loop recording feature you can record endlessly onto your microSD card and never need to manually erase recordings from the dash cam.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent but limited useability and usefulness. Bought for myself. Overall it's a decent standard but overlooks some basic features. ___Good:___ --- Instructions are complete and simple. --- Can manually adjust recorded video brightness (+/-2EV). --- Accesories are good (e.g. cable+charger, mine came with a 16GB card). --- Compact so does not obscure view. ___Bad:___ --- Image is 'pixelated', has full HD, but lots of adjacent pixels form larger squares of a particular colour! Similar image quality to my £20 dash camera. --- Buttons have multiple functions which are not labelled. --- Playback feature does not have fastforward or rewind; cannot practically show footage at crash site. Fastforward and rewind are available on my £20 dash camera. --- Has 4 Infra Red LEDs which are pointless in road use (probably the case wth most cameras). Not as good in the dark as a professional review had implied by saying it 'records as much as I could see with my eyes'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dashcam Oh joy !! Paid for itself already, got cut up by motorist in a hurry. He stopped and was very irate. He wasn't at all impressed when I told him it was all recorded and was accepted by my Insurance company. Claim settled in my favour !!

In the video it states that GPS records your speed and it gives speed camera alerts. The written specification says this is not the case. Which is the correct specification?

Asked by: Ian10
The video is a generic advertising campaign video highlighting the various features advantages and benefits of the full range of dashcams in the range, this includes the following models RAC 04, RAC 05, RAC 06 (highlighted at the top of the video) Each of the units in this range have varying features RAC 04 does not feature speed camera alerts. http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/rac-04-1080p-full-hd-dash-cam-a06ug RAC 05 does have speed camera alerts http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/rac-05-dash-cam-super-hd-a05ug
