Powering your dash cam with a cigarette lighter socket

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Saturday, 22 March 2014

Cigarette Car Accessory Socket

If you're new to car cameras it's important to know that they get their power from the car cigarette lighter socket. Car cameras can't work off an internal battery alone because they will only last a couple of hours before running out. It's worth noting that many cameras do have an internal battery which allow you to take the camera out of the car and use a still camera.

A Car Camera Success Story

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Monday, 10 March 2014

One of the main reasons that we buy car cameras is so that we can prove our innocence in the case of an incident; in particular, those that result in damage to our vehicles. With even cosmetic repairs running to hundreds, or even thousands of pounds, being able to show, irrefutably, that it wasn't your fault is crucial. And that's exactly what I managed to do recently, thanks to the footage from my trusty Mini 0801.

Mobius ActionCam (Dash Cam Version) Review

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Tuesday, 18 February 2014

Mobius Action Camera

The Mobius ActionCam is an all round action camera which comes with the basic dash cam features required to make it an ideal car camera. This includes loop recording, auto power on/off, range of car mounts, and auto recording amongst other things which turn this light and nimble action camera into the perfect dash cam.

When you first hold the camera you realise just how small and light it actually is with an excellent build quality - it feels very strong and sturdy, more than enough to cope with even the worst drivers out there! It's by far the smallest dash cam on the market and one of the cheapest.

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Thursday, 6 February 2014

Mini 0801 firmware update

One way of ensuring your Mini 0801 dash cam is performing at its best is to keep the firmware up to date.

This often adds new features and menu options, or fixes known issues and bugs. With each firmware upgrade your product will usually get better and more stable. Read our tutorial to see how this is done.

Our guide to parking protection with real life footage

Posted by Car Camera Shop on Monday, 20 January 2014

Parking Protection Video

Parking protection is a popular feature on many dash cams but we're often asked, just exactly, "what is it?" Does it help you park the car into a tight space? Does it record whilst you're parked? Read on for our beginners guide to parking protection or watch our video for an overview by the lovely Katie.

If you've ever returned to your car in a car park and noticed a dent in the door or even worse, dented and scratched panels, you'll immediately see the benefit parking protections can bring.

In a nutshell, parking protection is a mode on the camera which continues to record whilst you have parked and left your car. When the camera detects movement in front using motion detection or a shock using a built-in g-sensor, it will record and lock a file so you can play it back later should you need to.
