This Dashcam X209 WDR 2CH records in high quality FullHD 1080p 24fps at the front and VGA at the rear. 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.
Note: This dashcam works only with the supplied cigarette power cable and will not function properly with another power cable.
480p IP68 waterproof rear camera
This Dashcam X209 WDR 2CH comes with a rear camera with a VGA (480p) 30fps resolution and is IP68 water and dust proof. It has a 6 meter long cable that is connected to the front camera and trough which it sends its video data and gets its power.
The rear camera can be additionally connected to the power of the reverse light. The four LEDs will then turn on when the car is put in reverse and the image of the rear camera is fully shown on the LCD screen. This makes the camera ideal as parking assistance.
The Dashcam X209 WDR 2CH has two types of parking mode that have to be manually activated. Note that for these functions to properly work the X209 WDR 2CH 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 X209 WDR 2CH 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.
3.0 inch LCD screen
The big 3.0 inch LCD screen on this Dashcam X209 WDR 2CH lets you see the current and saved recordings and makes the menu easily accessible. The X209 WDR 2CH has an optional screensaver that activates after 3 minutes as to not distract the driver too much.
This X209 WDR 2CH is placed on the windscreen with an easy to use suction mount. This mount makes it easy to use the dashcam in more than one vehicle.

32gb Micro SD support
This Dashcam X209 WDR 2CH supports Micro SD cards up to 32gb (not included). 32gb stores about 4 to 6 hours of FullHD 1080p 30fps recordings.
170˚ + 160˚ lens
The Dashcam X209 WDR 2CH has a 170˚ wide view ‘fish-eye’ lens at the front and 160˚ lens at the rear to make sure a big area around the car is visible and captured.
Dashcam X209 WDR 2CH has a small 200mAh 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.
The Dashcam X209 WDR 2CH 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 Dashcam X209 WDR 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 Dashcam X209 WDR 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 X209 WDR 2CH will stay on and has to be turned on and off manually.
The built-in G-sensor in this Dashcam X209 WDR 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 Dashcam X209 WDR 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.
