If your car has ever been involved in a hit and run accident that was caught on camera, you know just how valuable a dash camera can be. The videos recorded by a well-positioned dash camera can make the difference in cases of motor vehicle collisions, insurance claims, car theft, criminal damage, or erratic driving incidents, offering unquestionable supporting evidence in video or in both audio and video. Dash cameras are also great for monitoring and surveillance, e.g. when you need to monitor the driving habits of your teenagers.
Dash Cameras are a great option for any person or business wanting to:

Most dash cameras can be either plugged into a car’s 12V accessory socket/cigarette lighter socket or hardwired into the car’s electrical system. We at Mobile Audio Concepts recommend hardwiring the dash camera into the car. Our professional installation will hide all the cables through your hood lining and leave your 12V accessory socket/cigarette lighter socket available for other chargers.
Many dash cameras are designed to function while the vehicle is being driven, i.e. they are activated when you turn on the ignition of a car and turn off when you switch off the car. The footage is saved to an internal SD card or onto internal memory. WIFI-enabled dash cameras may upload the footage to cloud-based storage, from where it can be easily viewed and downloaded to any device or smartphone.
Some dash cameras come with a built in “Parking Mode”, meaning that they can function even when your car’s engine is off. Such dash cameras include a motion detection system. They automatically activate and start recording when their motion detectors are triggered.
Dash cameras can also be modified to include a car Parking Mode option, many times with the addition of a separate module. Parking mode works by supplying power to the camera until the car’s battery reaches a certain voltage, so the camera’s recording duration depends on the capacity of the car’s battery. The team at Mobile Audio Concepts can install such Parking Mode modules in your car for you.
Certain vehicles like late model BMWs are not compatible with built in or external parking mode modules due to their complex electronics. Using one of these modules on these cars will result in a battery error appearing on the dash. For late model BMW owners and other car owners who need their Parking Modes to work for extended periods, we recommend our premium solution, which is the installation of a dedicated dash camera battery. Systems that have a dedicated dash camera battery are not reliant on the vehicle’s battery, so they can record for a long time and can provide power to the camera until the battery runs completely flat without affecting the vehicle’s ability to start. These dedicated dash camera batteries recharge while you drive your car.
With our many years of experience in the industry and our highly knowledgeable background, we can assist in finding you a dash camera solution that will fit and work in your vehicle. We can also perform professional dash cam installation on all devices purchased online or from other retailers.
