Vantrue OnDash N4 dash cam hands-on: Three-channel camera with great all-round vision Review

Victoria D. Doty

The OnDash N4 sprint cam from Vantrue is a awesome-hunting, unobtrusive digicam that information in-auto and in-entrance sights in the exact same compact device with a rear digicam too in the box.

Inside of the box, there is the sprint cam, suction cup mount, auto charging cable, and a USB-Type C cable. There is also a rear digicam and a sticky pad to correct the digicam to the window. There is a brief get started tutorial as very well.  The consumer manual is complete and very well published, with a detailed rationalization of all the buttons, ports, and lights on the digicam.

The digicam does not have a memory card, and Vantrue endorses working with memory cards from 32GB to 256GB and formatting it at the time for each month to keep it in fantastic condition and lengthen its everyday living. 

The OnDash N4 is marketed as a three-channel digicam that can file entrance, inside, and rear at the exact same time working with 1440px (entrance), 1080 px (inside), and 1080px (rear) resolution at 30fps video. 

You can also configure it for twin recording mode with 4K+1080P (entrance and inside or entrance and rear) resolution or single entrance recording mode with 4K resolution.

You can also configure the inside and at the rear of the auto cameras, or use the entrance digicam on its have. Whilst, if you have compensated practically $260 for the device, you could possibly as very well choose advantage of all three cameras provided.

I also like the point you can set the digicam to file time-lapse pictures alternatively of video to build a video montage.

The entrance digicam is a Sony STARVIS 5M CMOS with an f1.4 lens which gives a one hundred fifty five-degree vast-angle see. There is a Sony STARVIS 2M CMOS f1.8 lens for the rearview with a a hundred and sixty-degree vast-angle, and 4 infrared lights for the in-auto see with 165 degrees vast angle.

The rear display is two.45-inch IPS Lcd with effortless to use buttons. As soon as set — you can neglect about the digicam — unless of course you have pushed down bumpy streets. All bumps will be recorded as collisions, locking the video loop. It will not be overwritten if the SD card will get comprehensive.

If the digicam is hardwired and connects to the auto battery, the OnDash N4 will also keep an eye on your auto frequently till the auto battery runs down. It will detect motion in entrance of the vehicle, and if it detects a collision, it will switch on the digicam to file occasions.

You can configure the loop recording for just one, three, or 5 minutes or change loop recording off. Other buttons make it possible for you to take a look at the sensitivity, increase audio, alter collision detection, and motion detection options, and alter the resolution for each digicam.

You can also toggle GPS settings on or off if you have bought an optional GPS receiver. If you have this, you can observe the route, place, and pace.

I like the point that I can use the digicam as a reversing digicam for the auto — to see what is at the rear of the auto if you have a inadequate see out of the back again window.

The OnDash N4’s vision at night is really extraordinary. The video is clear and variety plates are effortless to read. In the course of the day, the entrance and rear sights are great and there is negligible lensing of the picture.

Vantrue says that the digicam makes use of a capacitor alternatively of lithium batteries, which the organization statements will give the digicam a for a longer time everyday living span than lithium-ion batteries in other sprint cams.. I did not have the chance to show if this was real or not.

I did not have the chance to push too considerably with this digicam, as I analyzed it during lockdown. But during the constrained time I analyzed this, I was impressed with its options. 

For $260, you can get a three-channel digicam to enjoy what is going on each outside — and inside of your auto.
