Product description

A great entry level dash cam

The RAC04 Dash Cam is an entry level forward facing dash cam that records in full 1080p HD. It mounts securely to the windscreen using a suction mount and records the road ahead with a 120° wide angle lens. A dash cam is becoming an essential driving accessory to help prove innocence in accidents and road incidents on our increasingly busy roads. We are also starting to see insurance companies offer discounts for drivers who fit a dash cam to their vehicle.

The built-in microphone can record sound and the emergency button can be pressed to safely store a video segment and stop it being recorded over. Photo Mode allows you to take still photos with the camera.

You can review videos and photos on the 1.5” TFT LCD colour screen and speaker.

How does the RAC 04 Dash Cam work?

The RAC 04 dash cam records video onto a micro SD card, which is fitted into a slot on the camera.

The amount of video stored depends on the size of SD card being used – the RAC04 can support SD cards with a capacity up to 32 GB.

The RAC 04 records in segments, the length of which is pre-set to 3 minutes, but can be adjusted using the simple menu functions of the camera.

When the SD card is full, the camera operates as a loop recording system, and will overwrite the oldest recording and continue without the need to erase or download any data.

Note on uploading videos

The USB cable supplied with your RAC Dash Cam is designed to provide power only and won’t transfer files to your PC. We advise that purchase a Mini USB cable – available from electrical stores, supermarkets and online.

We can fit at home or work

If you’d like your RAC dash cam professionally fitted and hard wired into your car for continuous power we can visit you at home or work. This service costs £70 and you won’t need to take it to a garage.
