VIOFO VS1 Mini 2K Dash Cam

Joan and I have covered thousands of miles in our RV travels. Now on the second 5th wheel, we’ve learned much about towing and traveling in heavy traffic. Towing a 42 foot 5th wheel with a F350 dually, we’re long, we’re heavy, and it takes some distance to stop. Something that hasn’t changed are those aggressive drivers when we’re towing through a busy city. We have to maintain that every important long gap to ensure we have ample room to stop. Our concern has always been that of an aggressive driver that will jump in front of us when we’re trying to stop. We’ll bump their rear bummer (or worse), and it will be their word against ours that were were following too close. Hence, the need for a good quality dash cam that is always on while traveling with high quality recording of all the events in front of our truck. We’re using the VIOFO VS1 Mini 2K Dash Cam and found it’s a perfect companion for our RV travels.

We like the size of the VIOFO VS1 Mini, as the name implies, measuring only 3 inches tall and 1.3 inches wide. We installed the dash cam on our windshield next to our rear view mirror and liked that it had no screens or excessive lights to distract us will driving.

As you will see in the video, the VS1 dash cam records front road scenes in 2K resolution with a 140° wide angle and uses the Sony STARVIS 2 sensor providing distortion-free images that easily captures licenses plates and road signs.

Installing Dash Cam

Installation was very simple, mounting securely to our windshield in seconds using the attached sticky pad. If using the supplied car accessory power plug, it’s just stick the dash cam to the windshield, plug in power, and in minutes your able to record your travels. We chose the optional HK5 hardwired kit to make the camera turn on and off with the ignition key. Simple install taking a little over an hour to run the wires.

Using the Dash Cam

As shown in the video clips, the integrated GPS displays the precise location to record our driving route, speed, exact time and date. The built-in WiFi allows us to wirelessly connect the car dash camera to our smartphone for video clip playback and transfers without having to remove the memory card.
