The Vantrue N2 Dash Camera is a first for me as it features not one, but two cameras.
The first camera is your standard front facing camera to capture what is going on ahead of you. The second is a rear facing camera to capture what’s going on in the car.
There is a little screen on the back which is really useful for getting the camera positioned correctly and going through the various options available.
The camera comes with a brilliant windscreen mount which has a USB port for the power cable, meaning when you want to take the camera out of the car you don’t need to disconnect it from the USB cable.
The provided USB cable has also been smartly designed as it’s not just for powering the cameras, but also acts as a USB point if you want to charge you mobile on the go.
Setup is easier enough, you’ll want to spend a bit of time in the camera menus to set things like the time and date. There is also a GPS menu but that appears to be for if you purchase a GPS addon.
Footage is very good and the benefit of having two cameras becomes apparent when reviewing the files.
Rather than a single file featuring both videos (which would mean part of the front camera footage was obscured) you actually have two files that are named almost the same, but one is A and one is B.
Opening them you get to see a lot more than a single camera setup, the front camera captures the usual footage of what’s happening up ahead, the rear camera adds a wide angle shot that shows what is happening behind and to the side of you.
So if something were to happen you get a much better idea of how it has happened. In a single camera setup you’ve covered the front, but if something hits your side or rear you’re not going to see it happen, with this you will.
The camera also records sound. I did actually talk to the camera for the video review to demonstrate the mic pickup but realised on reviewing the footage that because two cameras are recording at the same time my footage had been lost.
I was using a 4GB card, but I’d recommend getting 32GB (the largest this supports) to ensure you have lots of room for both cameras footage.
It’s be good if a large memory card and GPS was included out the box, but this would drive the price up as this manages to deliver two good quality cameras for not much more than some single camera setups.
