Specialist’s Rating: 4.5/ 5.
- Budget friendly.
- Good daytime and also ample nighttime captures.
- Doesn’t consist of Micro SD card.
- GPS is a $30 add-on.
The V1 looks economical at $100 up until you understand it’ll cost you one more $30 to get the GPS everyone ought to have. Remarkably constant daytime capture is the best attribute of this bare-bones version.
Design and also functions: On the extra side.
The Rexing V1 is a little on the large size. Not large enough to interfere with anything if it’s mounted in the correct area (behind the mirror is great), however if you’re seeking little– this isn’t it.
We assume GPS, a $30 add-on for the base version V1, is always a good concept. If the idea is to win your lawsuits, specifically.
The dimension, nonetheless, permits a 2.4-inch display screen, big switches, and also sufficient air to moderate heat. There’s a single mini SD slot, yet Rexing doesn’t consist of a card with the basic $100 V1 model we reviewed. Include $20 at check out for a 32GB card.
Which brings us to a conversation of the different designs. The V1 has a GPS port, and there’s a $30 add-on component, however the supporting camera port is tricking because the V1 is only single-channel. The $130 V1P is dual-channel and actually comes with a rear camera, yet again, add $30 for a GPS component. Possibly the best bargain of the lot is the formerly discussed V1LG, which has integrated GPS, a rear camera, as well as a 16GB mini SD card in package for $170. That is a pretty good bargain.

We’ve mentioned GPS rather a little bit. Having GPS details on your video clip might be the distinction in between winning and losing your insurance claim, or legal action.
The Rexing V1 places flush to the windscreen, and also the camera aspect rotates up and down to match the perspective. You could think about using a degree when placing the system, so you don’t end up with straight skew in your video clip. The installing did seem to affect the video somewhat– more on that later on.
The V1 installs with adhesive, but the adhesive as well as the mount are different. Keep in mind that cooling the double-sided adhesive tape (in the fridge if needed) makes it a lot easier to remove the protective film. When the initial blasphemy stands out right into your head, you’ll understand if you need to do this.
The Rexing DashCam V1 installs flush with the windscreen, though a $6 suction install is also available. As long as you’re cautious aligning the system horizontally when you place it, the adhesive is probably your better option.
The Rexing V1 avoids driver-safety functions such as lane departure or accident warnings. It does have one function that’s brand-new to us: You can enter your certificate plate number for watermarking your videos.
Efficiency: Super constant captures.
The V1’s 170-degree, 1080p video high quality is a mixed bag. It is very stable as well as sharp , if not fairly as color-rich as what we’ve seen on other like-priced dash cams.

There’s absolutely absolutely nothing incorrect with the V1’s day video clip. There is, nevertheless, some reflection from the dashboard. With the camera slanted further upwards, this effect reduced but did not vanish.
The night video produced by the Sony Exmor sensor was excellent, specifically in low-light problems. Headlight flare was a little bit more distracting than we’ve seen from some other dash cams recently, but absolutely far better than with the entry-level cameras of a couple of years earlier. Once again, either the wide-angle lens itself, or its range from the windshield, made the V1’s pictures more vulnerable to distortion as a result of interior dampness or moisture on the outside, which we run into frequently in foggy San Francisco.

The V1’s night captures are great. Its Exmor sensor manages reduced light circumstances well. Several of the distortion, yet not all of it, is San Francisco haze.
The Rexing V1 is a experienced camera, however too sparsely included to amass anything far better than ordinary marks in our review. The company ensured I understood that it offers something that can be in short supply with some dash cameras: technical assistance. If my communications with the Connecticut company are any kind of indication, it ought to be fairly great. While this is a strong product that takes great video for not a great deal of cash money, the company’s V1LG is the much better offer on the whole.
Rexing’s $100 V1 dash cam takes extremely good day video, respectable night video, as well as is simple to set up as well as utilize. The V1 has a GPS port, and there’s a $30 add-on component, but the auxiliary camera port is tricking since the V1 is only single-channel. The Rexing V1 mounts flush to the windshield, as well as the camera component rotates up and down to match the perspective. The V1’s 170-degree, 1080p video clip quality is a blended bag.
