Car Dashboard Mount Camera

In many situations, private investigators need a hands-free car dashboard mount camera during surveillance missions. Dash mountable cams provide a simple solution for capturing video while following a subject on the road or if you need to focus on driving. These cams can also be a fail-safe, capturing video more consistently when you may not pay full attention to what’s happening.

Long surveillance assignments can sometimes be quite boring, and staying focused isn’t always easy. Having a dash-mounted camera taking video at all times will help capture these “in-between” periods. 

Following is an overview of the product iDrive, which is a simple Car Dashboard Mount Camera that is available from

About the Cam Mounting

The iDrive cam is easily mounted on a car’s dashboard, but the tool can easily be mounted on just about any surface. The product has a dashboard mounting kit with 3M adhesive tape that securely fastens it. The camera is equipped with Pinpoint Laser Aiming, an integrated laser designed to help you precisely aim the camera. The red laser can be seen day or night to help specify where the camera will record footage.

Power Source for the Dashboard Cam

The battery-powered product uses three (3) AAA batteries as its power supply. This is a notable feature as it does not require power from the vehicle to run. Therefore, it is perfect for conducting quiet, covert surveillance. The batteries power the device for up to six (6) hours of continuous video recording. The car charger can be used for continuous power, which is more useful for conducting driving surveillance.

Playing Back Video from the Dashboard Cam

The dashboard cam records video footage in AVI format, which is not the most common format. Hopefully, the vendor will support additional file types as they update the product in future versions.

You can playback recorded videos on a Mac or a personal computer (PC) using a media player. For example, the media player can be QuickTime or Windows Media Player. In addition, the product comes with a set of RCA cables to playback on a television. Of course, this assumes you have the proper input jacks on your TV. Connect the RCA cables directly to the device and the other end to the TV and use the controls to watch the recorded footage.

What is the Storage Capacity?

The Car Dashboard Mount Camera comes packed with a 32-gigabyte SD storage card with up to 15 hours of video footage. For its specific purpose, we rate the overall storage capacity as good. Fifteen hours should cover most surveillance jobs.

How is the Image Quality?

The device offers surprisingly clear QVGA full-color video in 400k resolution at 320 x 240. We rate the overall image quality as good. This product is currently unavailable for purchase. Visit to find other Dashboard Mounted Cameras.
