FullHD 1080p videos
This AZDome M05 Touch records in high quality FullHD 1080p 30fps. The quality of the videos at low light is also good for a camera in this price range. The resolution can also be set at 720p 30fps.
3.0 inch OLED touch screen LCD
The best part about this AZDome M05 Touch is its big 3.0 inch OLED touch screen LCD. On this big and bright screen the menu is easily accessible and the videos can be seen in detail. The M05 Touch has an optional screensaver that activates after 3 minutes as to not distract the driver too much.
AZDome M05 Touch has a built-in GPS receiver to show the current speed in the video and to save all coördinates of your location. Later, the videos can be shown together with the GPS location in Google Maps using AZDome’s GPS player for Windows and Mac. Check AZDome.hk for downloads.
The AZDome M05 Touch has two types of parking mode that have to be manually activated. Note that for these functions to properly work the M05 Touch has to be powered with the Hardwire Kit (see accessories).
Activate the Motion Detection function in the menu and the camera will stay in stand-by mode. When a motion is detected, the M05 Touch will start a recording of 30 seconds and then go in stand-by mode again. Please note that this is a different recording type and is preferably only turned on during parking and turned off when normally driving.
When Parking Mode is activated and the camera is turned off, it will boot up and start a recording when a vibration is detected.
This M05 Touch is placed on the windscreen with a firm adhesive mount that doubles as the GPS receiver. This clever design allows for a clean installation, great GPS reception and videos with little to no vibration. The mount stays on the windscreen and the dashcam can be slid in and out of it easily.
128gb Micro SD support
This AZDome M05 Touch supports Micro SD cards up to 128gb (not included). 128gb stores about 16 to 24 hours of FullHD 1080p 30fps recordings.
The AZDome M05 Touch has a 170˚ wide view ‘fish-eye’ lens to make sure a big area around the car is visible and captured.
AZDome M05 Touch has a small 400mAh built-in battery for safety reasons. The battery makes sure that the current recording can be saved on the SD card in case of a current power loss.
Note that it’s not the purpose of the battery to power the dashcam for a longer time, the battery doesn’t have enough capacity. Every dashcam should therefore always be connected to a power source in order to function properly.
This AZDome M05 Touch is equipped with loop recording so the dashcam will keep recording even when the SD card is full. Videos are stored in short files of 3, 5 or 10 minutes, when the SD card is full the oldest file will be automatically deleted so there is space for a new file. This way you are sure the last period of time is stored on the SD card, the length of this period depending on the size of the SD card.
When powered by the cigarette power plug, the AZDome M05 Touch will start recording automatically when the car is turned on and will stop recording when the car is turned off. Note that this function will only work in cars that provide power trough the cigarette port when the ignition is on. When power is also provided when the ignition is off, the M05 Touch will stay on and has to be turned on and off manually.
The built-in G-sensor in this AZDome M05 Touch registers when you have an accident and in that case saves the current file in a special emergency folder on the SD card. Files in this folder cannot be erased by the loop recording.
The AZDome M05 Touch has the option to make pictures. The picture mode can be accessed by longer pressing the Menu button and the pictures are stored on the SD card in a separate folder.
This AZDome M05 Touch has a built-in microphone. The microphone can be muted in the menu.
Date and time registration
The current time and date of the recordings are visible in the lower corner of the videos. This setting can also be turned off in the menu.
