Vantrue N1 Car Dash Camera Review

The VanTrue N1 Dash Camera is the most compact car camera I’ve ever tried.

The box it comes in isn’t massive, so it was a surprise when I opened it to find such a dinky camera inside. As well as the camera you get manuals, a good length power cable and a USB cable.

The power cable features a small cover which, when opened, reveals a USB port allowing you to charge you mobile on the go, a really nice touch.

A first for me is that the power cable can plug into the screen holder instead of the camera. This is such a simple idea but it’s brilliant, it means you can very easily take the camera out of the car without having to disconnect cables.


The small size means you get a small screen, but the menu is still easy to navigate and use. There are a lot of options so it’s worth spending time checking out all the options.

Image quality is excellent, good wide angle lens that takes in multiple lanes and it captures lots of details such as number plates, road markings etc. The unit also does a good job at recording in car sound, I imagine this would be very handy if you were in an accident off camera, to hear what happened before the accident.

There isn’t any GPS logging with this camera.

Great little compact dash cam.
