As the roads get busier, collisions become ever more frequent. This has lead to more and more insurance claims and with that, more disputes on the liability of fault. When it’s one persons word against another this can become a drawn out process. The DRV-410 gives you 3 megapixel recording and accident avoidance features to 1) avoid an accident and 2) help prove fault in the event of a bump.
3 Megapixel recording captures clear video even while driving and HDR helps records clear images in dark or sunny conditions without underexposing or overexposing the image. The DRV-410 is equipped with the latest in accident avoidance sensor technology, sensors detect the distance between your car and the vehicle ahead of you and if a safe distance is not maintained a warning will sound.
This collision Avoidance works at speeds of 20 MPH and up while Lane Departure detects the lane your vehicle is in and alerts you with a warning sound when the vehicle drifts from that lane. Lane Departure works at 40 MPH and up. Additionally, when your vehicle is at a full stop and the car in front of you starts to move forward the departure delay warning sounds if your car fails to move forward. The system will also provide warning if your vehicle starts to move backward.
Recording starts as soon as the vehicle starts, so you are ready to go right away with no intervention. In continuous recording mode the oldest files are deleted when storage capacity has been exceeded, so you never run out of space. Pressing the Rec button on the device takes the camera out of continuous record mode and into manual mode. The recording time of manual recording is 10 seconds before the manual recording button was pressed plus the time set for “Manual Recording Time”. This ensures that capture the event you want to keep on file.
When the vehicle is parked up, parking recording mode becomes active. If the vehicle is subject to a collision, or similar event, the cameras parking recording will capture the action. The DVR-410 is equipped with a G-Sensor designed to detect a collision, and GPS that records speed and latitude and longitude.
