DRV-A501W - Wide Quad HD Recording — 1.8 times as many pixels as Full HD
With it's 3.7 megapixel CMOS sensor, the DRV-A501W captures Wide Quad HD video at 30fps, 1.8 times as many pixels as Full HD, making super-high resolution recording and replay possible.
* By connecting the optional rear camera (KCA-R100) it is possible to record front and rear directions simultaneously, both in Full HD quality.
HDR (High Dynamic Range)- Reducing “ Blown out Highlights” and “Crushed Blacks”
HDR helps to reduce “blown out highlights” and “crushed blacks” and ensure clear images in challenging environments, including backlit scenes in daylight, streetlight scenes at night and places where light-dark contrast is particularly severe, such as at tunnel entrances/exits.
Polariser Filter — Reduces Front Windscreen Reflection
The DRV-A501W includes a Polariser Filter. This reduces such things as dashboard reflection on the windscreen, which may appear in certain positions or due to weather conditions, and helps to lessen glare on sunny days, making it possible to record clear outside images.
Quick Release Magnetic Mount
The patent-designed magnetic mount, unlike the traditional mounts which use a latching mechanism, allows you to place and remove the device simply and instantly. No cable to connect or disconnect from the dash cam.
2 Ways to Mount
A suction-cup and an adhesive mount are included in the package. The suction mount makes it easier to attach and detach from the windshield while the adhesive mount provides more solid support for the camera.
3-axis G Sensor & GPS Receiver
The built-in 3-axis G Sensor with adjustable sensitivity detects an outside force, forcing the device to save what has just been recorded. In addition, the GPS Receiver allows your videos to add location and speed data.
Micro SDXC/SDHC Card (Included with the DRV-A501W - 16GB SDXC Card)
You can use a card from 8GB up-to 256GB (Class 10). The below recording times are the totals (maximums) for continuous recordings, manual recordings, event recordings and parking recordings. The recording times are estimates. They may become shorter depending on the recording scene.
|Recording Quality (at Default Settings)||WQHD (2560 x 1440p)|

Optional CA-DR1030 - Hardwire Kit for Smart Parking Mode
The 4m long cable can help you to easily tuck and hide the car power cable into the headliner.
When your vehicle is parked and turned off, the Smart Parking Mode becomes active. If your vehicle is subject to a collision or other physical impacts, your dash cam powers on thanks to the built-in G-Sensor and automatically records 30 seconds of video. The hardwire kit CA-DR1030 (optional accessory) is required for permanent power.
