Vantrue X1 Car Dash Camera Review

The Vantrue X1 dash camera isn’t the first Vantrue camera I’ve tried, this sits in the middle of the high end and low end models I’ve previously looked at.

As with the other cameras you get the brilliant Vantrue windscreen mount which powers the camera so you don’t need to plug a wire into the camera itself. This makes it really easy to remove the camera from the car without worrying about unplugging it.

The power lead is also smart as it also includes a USB socket so you can still use your cars power socket to charge your mobile.

Setup is very easy and the screen gives you a decent sized menu that is easier to read than smaller screen menus I’ve seen on other dash cameras.

Due to the bit UI design you’ll be tempted to poke the screen, unfortunately it isn’t touch screen, you’ll need to use the buttons to navigate around, and it’s worth spending a bit of time getting everything setup, for example the date and time.

The camera has a good wide angle lens, it offers good quality footage that allows you to see across multiple lanes of traffic and you can read road signs and number plates.

It does also record audio, this could be useful if an accident happens off camera as you’ll capture the sound leading up to it, for example the sound of tires screeching.

The X1 is a good dash camera, but it sits in the middle of two excellent alternatives, the lower cost, but more compact Vantrue N1 and the slightly more expensive Vantrue N2 Dual Dash Cam which offers cameras looking both forwards and backwards.
