This LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH records in high quality FullHD 1080p 30fps with the front camera. It uses a high quality Sony 2.1MP image sensor and the Allwinner V3 chipset.
The LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH can record in four different types:
Regular recording: The regular recordings start when the camera is switched on. The recordings are stored on the SD card in fragments of 5 minutes (adjustable). When the SD card is full, the oldest fragments are automatically deleted from the card to make room for new recordings.
Event recording: When an impact is detected by the built-in G-sensor, the camera switches to Event recording and indicates this with a sound. The 10 seconds before and 20 seconds after the impact are stored on the MicroSD card and cannot be deleted by the camera.
Parking recording: When in parking mode, the camera detects movements and will store a 30-second recording on the regular SD card when a movement occurs.
Emergency recording: A manual emergency recording can be started with one press on the button. These 30-second recordings are safely stored on a separate file on the SD card.
One of the great parts about this V790 GPS 1CH is the automatic parking mode function. The V790 GPS 1CH comes with a 3-wire hardwire cable included. Connect the yellow cable to a continuous power source, the red cable to a switched power source and the black cable to the ground of the car. Now when you turn off the ignition the dashcam will go into parking mode automatically and will start a normal recording when you start the car again. In Parking mode, the dashcam is on stand-by and will make a 30 seconds video when a movement is detected, 10 seconds prior and 20 seconds after detection.
Note: The yellow and red cable are connected differently from other (Chinese) hardwire cables. Normally the red cable is for the continuous power and the yellow for the switched one, for Korean dashcams like this one it’s the other way around.
This LUKAS V790 1CH 16gb has built-in Wifi, enabling wireless video transferring between the camera and your iOS and Android phone or tablet with the available LUKAS App. All settings can also be easily changed in the App. The LUKAS app is available for free in the Appstore and Google Play store.
The ADAS system on this LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH is a built-in 'Advanced Driver Assistant System'. This system supports the driver on three different ways:
FCWS: Forward Collision Warning System. This system gives a warning when a vehicle in front is approached at high speed, for example because of a traffic jam. When the GPS signal is good, the V790 GPS 1CH has the current speed and can give a predictable calculation of the situation around the car.
LDWS: Lane Departure Warning System. When the car is about to leave the driving lane, the camera can give a signal to alert the driver.
FVSA: Forward Vehicle Start Alarm. Everyone has one of these moments when you don't really pay attention while waiting in line at a traffic light- or jam. This system warns the driver when the vehicle in front is driving away.
*The ADAS functions better or worse depending on the road situation. On relatively small roads, the LDWS system can give a signal quite quickly.
This LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH has a built-in GPS receiver. The current speed is shown in every video and the coördinates are stored on the SD card. Using the LUKAS viewer for Windows and Mac the videos can be shown together with the locations and G-sensor activity. Also more advanced settings can be changed in the viewer. LUKAS GPS player is available for download on this LUKAS page. Make sure to select the correct model before downloading.
This LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH can resist extreme temperatures between -30˚C and 80˚C. LUKAS puts a lot of effort in designing very high quality dashcams, making it one of the most durable brands on the market.
This LUKAS gives spoken signals and warnings, telling the driver which recording type the camera is in or if any other error occurred. V790 GPS 1CH has the option to select three languages; English, Korean and Japanese.
With the new LUKAS format free function the SD card in this V790 GPS 1CH doesn't need to be formatted manually anymore. Where other SD cards need to be formatted every few weeks or months, the V790 GPS 1CH is totally without hassle.
V790 GPS 1CH has as security LED on the camera to show others that your car is protected. The LED can be turned off in the menu if you like.
The LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH comes with a Hardwire cable in de box, a cigarette power cable is optional (see accessories). Note that the parking mode function (see below) will only work with the Hardwire cable installed.
In combination with the Hardwire kit, the LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH has a low voltage cut-off prevention to make sure the camera doesn't drain your car's battery when it's parked. The voltage can be set at 11.8V, 12.0V and 12.4V.
This V790 GPS 1CH 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. Extra mounts are available if you want to use the camera in more than one vehicle (see accessories).
This LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH supports Micro SD cards up to 128gb (not included). 128gb stores about 16 to 24 hours of FullHD 1080p 30fps recordings.
The LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH has a 135˚ + 120˚ wide view ‘fish-eye’ lens to make sure a big area around the car is visible and captured.
The LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH has a super capacitor instead of a normal battery. Super capacitors are more durable and reliable than Li-ion batteries. They have a longer lifespan and perform better in very high or low temperatures. Note that capacitors only store power for a very short time, meaning that the camera will immediately turn off when the power it turned off and cannot be used without a power source.
This LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH 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 LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH 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 V790 GPS 1CH will stay on and has to be turned on and off manually.
The built-in G-sensor in this LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH 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.
This LUKAS V790 GPS 1CH has a built-in microphone. The microphone can be muted in the menu.
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.
