It all started when I wanted to buy a dash cam for my car. One of the criteria is the camera must use a capacitor instead of lithium battery. As we live in a tropical climate, exposing a lithium battery to the heat is not ideal. I did some research online and was very closed to buying the Viofo A119, when I stumbled upon this rather cute looking dashcam- Remax CX-04.
I tried looking for reviews but- as mentioned earlier- couldn't find any. However, I did find a few YouTube videos from Vietnam showing the camera's video quality. Overall, the video quality looks okay and the camera is cheaper than the Viofo A119. So, I decided to take the risk and bought it on Shopee for RM220.
This is how the package looks like.
|Simple but beautiful|
|I bought the black one so it's more discreet|
|You can the option of 3M sticker or suction cup. Most dashcam reviewers suggest using stickers.|
|Cable to connect to the power source|
|there's a slot (not visible in this picture) for you to attach your phone cable|
|Instruction manual in English & Chinese|
|You can scan this to download the app on your phone(IOS or Android)|
Installation was pretty easy and you should have no problem doing it.
|I put it just behind the mirror|
|Not that visible from the outside, would prefer the rim to be black too|
As cute as it looks, the import part is the video quality. There is an option to record at 720Pp or 1080p. you will need a Micro SD card(manual says up to 64gb) to record the video. Put in on a loop and you can easily transfer any important video from the camera to you phone.
Below are my sample videos.
If you want a dashcam that doesn't hurt your pocket, I highly recommend this Remax CX-04.
