The Cobra SC 201 is a front- and rear-view dash cam that’s built for drivers who want HD video at an affordable price to provide some peace of mind during road trips or commutes. It can also record still photos at 12 megapixels. It features G sensors that detect sudden jolts or impacts and save footage from before and after the event. The device can also automatically upload to the cloud and send a crash alert to an emergency contact with your GPS location at the time of the accident.
The device comes with a 2.4-inch LCD screen for playback of recorded video and settings. It can be configured to display a variety of warnings including lane departure, speeding and collision warnings. It also has a parking surveillance mode that records the camera’s view of your vehicle while it is parked. It also includes an integrated GPS, which can automatically set the date and time of videos based on your current location. It can also be used to display driver ID and video watermarks on video recordings.
The camera mounts high up on your windshield and is powered by a cable that runs to your car’s cigarette lighter or 12-volt power port. It has a 2.7mm lens and can capture a wide field of view. The front camera provides excellent clarity, while the rear camera’s infrared LED illumination allows for clear nighttime recording. The camera can also be set up to send real-time alerts to your phone when it senses speed cameras or other road hazards.
