Sony Exmor sensor, 1080P Full HD, 30fps
Under the hood of the Transcend’s DrivePro 230 is a Sony Exmor sensor that captures high-resolution images with superb, rich color even in low light. Built-in Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology balances the brightest and dimmest areas of captured images, ensuring that every critical shot is as clear as possible. Night or day, the camera can clearly record details such as license plate numbers at 30 fps at 1080p Full HD.
The DrivePro 230’s GPS receiver can log GPS coordinates, date, and time into recorded video footage. GPS coordinates precisely locate where an incident happened so that emergency road services, police, or an insurance representative can respond more quickly. The DrivePro Toolbox enables the full review of a trip, including GPS position, speed, and time of day.
Additional key features
Transcend’s DrivePro 230 also features Lane Departure Warning System, which checks for, and alerts a driver to, sudden changes in speed and lane. The Forward Collision Warning System warns a driver when the driving speed exceeds a preset value, such that the vehicle is getting too close to the car ahead. The system will in either case alert a driver with a warning sound and an onscreen alert. When the DrivePro detects poor lighting conditions, the Headlight Reminder will be activated. To help prevent tired drivers from getting into an accident, the Driver Fatigue Alert regularly reminds a driver of the need to rest after driving for a preset, driver-determined period of time.
The DrivePro 230 dashcam is backed by Transcend’s Two-year Limited Warranty.
