Is GPS important on a dash cam?
After attaching the GPS signal receiving module to the dashcam, the real-time position of the vehicle can be located. The recorded video indicates the current position of the vehicle. Also, the driver's driving route, time, date and speed can also be recorded.
GPS module is an integrated circuit composed of RF chip, baseband chip, coreCPU, and related peripheral circuits. Through this module, you realize locate and navigate.
The GPS module of the dashcam is divided into built-in and external. As for which one is better, it depends on its use scenarios. If the dashcam is large and the GPS module is internal, the reception of the GPS antenna will be affected, so the effect is not as good as the external one.

When an accident occurs, evidence will be provided immediately to protect the driver's rights. After installing the dashcam, the video image and sound of the whole driving process of the car can be recorded. The internal sensor can set the sensitivity of the impact force. When the external impact force is greater than the set threshold, the on-site data leading to the impact force will be recorded, which can provide evidence for traffic accidents and false fraud. For those who like road trips, they can also use it to record how they conquered difficult or dangerous situations. Also, It can be used for parking monitoring.
