Transcend DrivePro 200 Review
The Transcend DrivePro 200 Car Video Recorder is a versatile and affordable device that’s perfect for those who have always wanted the security offered by a dash cam but don’t want to break the bank. This camera is ideal for those looking to protect themselves from being held liable in accidents and even those who just want to document their driving.
The Transcend DrivePro delivers smooth detailed full HD 1080p video, and offers a 160-degree viewing angle. Videos are recorded and stored on the included 16GB microSD card, and the camera can support microSD cards up to a 32GB. The camera unfortunately doesn’t support 64GB cards but it can still capture hours of coverage.
When you want to view your captured video, you can easily transfer it off the camera via USB, or by using the built in Wi-Fi feature, which Apple iOS or Android devices can connect to with a free App. The captured video is in full HD so it will be crisp and detailed however you choose to view it, whether it be on a 4” smartphone or a 50” television.
The unit offers excellent performance in both night and day so you know you’re protected 24/7. With your headlights on it works just as well on non-illuminated country roads as it does in the daytime. For such a small device and affordable device, it’s amazingly versatile.
The camera features a built in motion G-sensor that is triggered by impact and will instantly enable emergency recording to ensure the camera stores the critical footage from just before the accident by protecting it from being overwritten.
The camera saves and protects the 10 seconds before the accident and the next 50 seconds in a separate protected folder so it can easily be found. The footage is also time stamped with the current date and time to help document the event. Such footage can be invaluable to have when dealing with the police or insurance companies.
The cam comes with a stick-on bracket for attaching the device to the windscreen, and can easily be mounted elsewhere via an optional suction cup mount. It’s powered by USB and comes with an adapter. Just plug it in and you’re good to go.
Overall, the Transcend dash cam is an affordable and useful gadget that can be invaluable in the event of an accident. Featuring excellent quality video, audio support and built in Wi-Fi for quick access on your smart phone this device is the perfect gadget for anyone who has always wanted a dashcam but has been put off by the price or feature limitations on other cameras.
