It has become increasingly common for driving instructors to have dash cameras in their vehicles, not only to ensure they have increased safety when on the road but to use as a teaching aid during lessons. However, for a dash camera to be used by a driving instructor there are a couple of special requirements. The first is a camera that has Wi-Fi, this allows a Wi-Fi enabled mobile or tablet to connect to the camera allowing you to review previously recorded footage. This can help the instructor explain what a student did wrong and how to improve. Another must have feature is the ability for the camera to run silently. This is to ensure that learners are not distracted or disturbed during lessons and tests by the camera beeping or ‘talking’.
These requirements rule out most dash cameras as although Wi-Fi connectivity is becoming increasingly popular, it is still not a feature the majority of cameras have. Even fewer cameras can be configured to run completely silent, with the camera producing no noise what so ever. Due to these requirements, the BlackVue DR750S dash camera is what many driving instructors purchase due to its ability to meet these specialist requirements. This camera can come as either a front only or front and rear camera system.
Both the front and rear camera record in 1080P Full HD, meaning the footage produced will be crystal clear. The DR750S has built in GPS and Wi-Fi for use with the smartphone app and comes with cloud compatibility allowing you to view your camera remotely. The GPS allows the vehicles location and speed to be overlaid onto the footage. Alongside these features, the cameras sleek cylindrical design means it is very discreet and will not be an eyesore for the driver.
When connected to your camera over Wi-Fi, you can change camera settings, review previously footage and watch the camera live. This can be useful if you want to use the dash cam in driving lessons, as you can easily find the footage and play it back to the learner.
The DR750S also has the availability of parking mode recording when hard-wired. This will result in the camera recording when either motion or an impact is detected after the ignition has been switched off, offering you peace of mind when you are not in the vehicle.
