Rexing’s $100 V1 dash cam takes great day video clip, decent evening video clip, and is simple to set up as well as use. We like it. It’s bare-bones: Adding GPS, which we recommend, costs an extra $30. If you have area in your spending plan, for $170 you could step up to Rexing’s dual-channel, dual-camera V1LG with integrated GPS, or most likely to our complete list of up on dash cam assesses for even more options.
At a Glance
Professional’s Rating: 4.5/ 5.
- Budget friendly.
- Good daytime as well as ample nighttime captures.
- Doesn’t include Micro SD card.
- General practitioner is a $30 add-on.
The V1 looks low-cost at $100 up until you realize it’ll cost you another $30 to get the GPS everyone need to have. Extremely constant daytime capture is the best attribute of this simplistic design.
Design as well as functions: On the extra side.
The Rexing V1 is a little on the large size. Not large sufficient to interfere with anything if it’s mounted in the proper place (behind the mirror is great), but if you’re trying to find small– this isn’t it.
We think GPS, a $30 add-on for the base model V1, is constantly a excellent idea. Particularly if the suggestion is to win your litigation.
The dimension, nonetheless, permits a 2.4-inch screen, big switches, and also sufficient air to moderate warm. There’s a solitary mini SD port, however Rexing does not consist of a card with the fundamental $100 V1 design we examined. Include $20 at checkout for a 32GB card.
Which brings us to a conversation of the various versions. The V1 has a GPS port, and there’s a $30 add-on module, however the supporting camera port is deceiving because the V1 is just single-channel. The $130 V1P is dual-channel and in fact features a rear camera, yet again, add $30 for a GPS component. Probably the very best bargain of the number is the previously discussed V1LG, which has actually integrated GPS, a rear camera, as well as a 16GB micro SD card in the box for $170. That is a respectable offer.

We’ve discussed GPS quite a bit. Having GPS information on your video might be the distinction between winning and also losing your case, or lawsuit.
The Rexing V1 installs flush to the windshield, as well as the camera aspect rotates vertically to match the perspective. You might take into consideration making use of a degree when installing the system, so you don’t wind up with straight alter in your video. The installing did appear to affect the video clip somewhat– more on that later on.
The V1 places with glue, but the glue as well as the place are separate. Keep in mind that cooling the double-sided adhesive tape (in the fridge if necessary) makes it a lot easier to eliminate the protective film. You’ll understand if you need to do this when the very first profanity pops into your head.
The Rexing DashCam V1 installs flush with the windscreen, though a $6 suction install is additionally available. As long as you’re careful aligning the system flat when you mount it, the adhesive is possibly your much better alternative.
The Rexing V1 skips driver-safety functions such as lane departure or collision warnings. It does have one feature that’s brand-new to us: You can enter your permit plate number for watermarking your videos.
Efficiency: Super consistent captures.
The V1’s 170-degree, 1080p video clip high quality is a mixed bag. It is sharp and also extremely secure , if not fairly as color-rich as what we’ve seen on various other like-priced dash cams.

There’s definitely absolutely nothing wrong with the V1’s day video clip. There is, nevertheless, some representation from the dashboard. With the camera slanted further upward, this result decreased however did not vanish.
The evening video clip generated by the Sony Exmor sensing unit was good, specifically in low-light problems. Headlight flare was a bit a lot more disruptive than we’ve seen from a few other dash cams just recently, however definitely better than with the entry-level cameras of a couple of years earlier. Once again, either the wide-angle lens itself, or its range from the windshield, made the V1’s photos more vulnerable to distortion due to indoor wetness or dampness outside, which we come across frequently in foggy San Francisco.

The V1’s night captures are great. Its Exmor sensor handles reduced light scenarios well. Several of the distortion, but not all of it, is San Francisco haze.
The Rexing V1 is a proficient camera, but also sparsely featured to amass anything far better than ordinary marks in our testimonial. While this is a solid item that takes good video for not a whole lot of cash money, the firm’s V1LG is the much better bargain on the whole.
Rexing’s $100 V1 dash cam takes very excellent day video, suitable night video clip, and also is very easy to set up and also utilize. The V1 has a GPS port, as well as there’s a $30 add-on module, yet the auxiliary camera port is tricking since the V1 is only single-channel. The Rexing V1 mounts flush to the windscreen, and also the camera aspect rotates up and down to match the perspective. The V1’s 170-degree, 1080p video clip high quality is a mixed bag.
