MACH Truck 3800 2CH FullHD 32gb truck dashcam
This 3800 2CH FullHD dashcam by MACH Truck is the 2CH version of the 3800 and a great dashcam that fits in every truck or van. With FullHD + HD cameras a large area around the truck is recorded to make driving easier and safer.
FullHD + HD camera
The MACH Truck 3800 2CH is fitted with one FullHD camera at the front and one HD (720p) camera for the side or rear of truck. Both cameras record in 30fps and are fitted with the high end SONY Starvis Night vision sensor for great visibility in low light conditions.
Cam 1 FullHD 137˚: In dashcam (front)
Cam 2 HD 126˚: 5m (side or rear)
Longer 10m and 20m video cables are available for longer vehicles or to place the second camera on the rear of the trailer. The second camera is IP69K waterproof and can therefore be mounted at every desirable place inside or outside of the vehicle. IP69K is the most durable classification meaning the camera is fully water and dust proof.
Note: The separate camera comes with screws for mounting. To mount the camera on the rear window or another place where screwing is not possible or desired we advice to use adhesive 3M stickers (see accessories).
Night vision + infrared
Both are fitted with the high end SONY Starvis night vision sensor, ensuring great visibility at all conditions. The separate camera even has additional infrared LEDs making the visibility at night even better. It has a low light detection sensor which automatically activates the infrared LEDs in the dark.
Different recording types
The MACH Truck 3800 2CH is capable of recording in different ways:
Regular recording: The normal recordings the dashcam makes while driving are stored on the SD card in fragments of 5 minutes. The loop recording automatically deletes the oldest files when the SD card is full, making place for a new ones and allowing continuous recording.
Event recording: Incidents during driving are securely saved form the loop recording. When the G-sensor detects an impact, the current recording is safely stored on the SD card so it cannot be deleted automatically.
Emergency recording: The driver can start a manual emergency recording with one press on the screen at any time. This file is also securely saved like the above mentioned event recordings.
Park recording: When the dashcam is in parking mode it is in stand-by mode and doesn't record. A 20 seconds long video is stored when a movement is detected. The 5 seconds prior and 15 seconds after the detected movement are stored on the SD card. Parking mode is automatically activated when the ignition of the truck is turned off.
Park event recording: When a detection is noticed when in parking mode, a protected event file is stored separately on the SD card.
All recordings are stored in different folders on the SD card making them very easy to find. The recordings in the Event folders are protected so they cannot be removed automatically by the Loop recording.
3.5" IPS Touchscreen LCD screen
The MACH Truck 3800 2CH truck dashcam has a high resolution 480*320p, 3.5 inch touchscreen LCD. On the screen the 3800 2CH shows the current recordings and stored recordings can be easily watched in the menu. One press on the screen switches between the front and rear camera, or all recordings simultaneously with PiP (Picture in Picture).
Signal cable (optional)
To make switching between the cameras on the LCD screen easy, the MACH Truck 3800 can be used with the optional signal cable. When connecting this signal cable, the camera of the direction in which the vehicle is moving will be displayed on the screen automatically.
External monitor (optional)
The MACH Truck 3800 2CH has a TV- and HDMI output to which an external monitor can be connected. Use the optional MACH Truck video cable to connect the dashcam to any existing monitor or screen. For the best experience you can use the MACH Truck 10 inch monitor with HDMI cable, making the dashcam a fully integrated truck camera system.
The MACH Truck 3800 2CH can be extended with the optional MACH Truck GPS receiver. When connecting this GPS receiver to the MACH Truck dashcam all coördinates of the filming locations will be stored and the current speed will be shown on the bottom of every video. Later, with the special MACH Truck software for the PC, the videos can be viewed together with the GPS data in Google Maps.
The MACH Viewer is only available for Windows computers and can be downloaded here.
The MACH Truck 3800 2CH dashcam has an optional password security making it very hard to enter the menu and tamper with the camera. This prevents people from changing settings or to delete stored recordings. This makes the dashcam ideal for fleet solutions or bigger logistics companies.
The MACH Truck 3800 2CH comes with a 5V/3A 3-wire hardwire kit for professional installation. The 3-wire installation allows for the parking mode to automatically activate when the ignition of the vehicle is turned off. The 3 wires are - ideally in the fuse box in the car - connected in the following way:
Red: Fuse with continuous power, even when the ignition is off.
Yellow: Fuse with switched power that's only on when the ignition is on.
The power kit has a built-in protection that cuts the power when the voltage gets below 11.6/23.2V. This prevents the battery from draining. The hardwire kit works with 12V and 24V batteries.
This MACH Truck 3800 2CH 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 MACH Truck 3800 2CH 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 dashcam will stay on and has to be turned on and off manually.
The built-in G-sensor in this MACH Truck 3800 2CH 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 MACH Truck 3800 2CH 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.
The MACH Truck 3800 2CH has a built in screensaver. The screensaver turns off the screen after 1 minute in order to not distract the driver too much. The camera will keep recording when the screen is turned off and the screen can be reactivated at any time with one press on the Bluetooth or OK button. The interval can be changed in the menu or the function can be completely turned off.
The MACH Truck 3800 2CH comes with an adhesive mount for the LCD screen. This makes mounting the screen on the dashboard very easy.
Watching the videos
Watching the recorded videos of the MACH Truck 3800 2CH can be done on the PC or on the dashcam’s own LCD screen. The videos are stored on the SD card as normal MP4 files and can be watched with every standard video player or with the special GPS player.
256gb MicroSD support
The MACH Truck 3800 2CH supports Micro SD card up to 256gb. In total this amount to about 24 hours of VGA videos. It comes with a 32gb Samsung Micro SD card, which allows for about 3 to 4 hours of FullHD videos to be stored.

Quality is really great, much better than other dash cams. Price is therefore also slightly higher, but my feeling is that this camera will easily last 5 years.
