The DC-1 is a car black box video recorder. It records video and audio on a constant loop and stores it on a standard SD memory card. This camera is fitted with a 3D sensor which measures G-force and will detect an impact. In the event of a collision, harsh braking or acceleration the DC-1 will save a 20 second clip (10 seconds before and 10 seconds after the incident) as an "event". The supplied 4gb card can hold over 200 "events"
The RoadHawk DC-1 vehicle drive recorder captures video, audio (can be disabled) G-Force and GPS data whilst you are driving. Using the supplied software you can play back the video files and see the exact vehicle speed, direction and position overlayed on to Google Maps.
Everything you need is supplied in the box and fitting this camera to your car is as easy as most portable Sat Nav devices. Simply mount the camera on your windscreen facing forwards and plug it in to your cigar lighter socket.
A 5m power cable and cable clips are supplied so you can make a nice, tidy install with the cable routed around the screen - out of view.
The 4gb SD Card supplied with the DC-1 will hold around 6 hours of video on a loop. You can expand this up to 32gb for a total of 48 hours record time.

Q: How easy is it to fit the RoadHawk DC-1 camera?

- Plug the camera in to the cigarette lighter accessory socket.
Q: I have recently installed my RoadHawk. Unfortunately, every time I hit a pot hole or a bump in the road it is recording it as a event even though I have set it to low sensitivity.
A: if you have set the camera to the lowest sensitivity setting then there is not too much you can do. Unfortunately, pot holes can jolt your car so hard, the camera thinks there might have been an accident. Ok, we could lower the sensitivity in the firmware but then there is the risk of the camera not storing an event even if you have been in a knock. A 4gb SD card will store over 200 events before it starts to overwrite them so there is no need to be concerned if you are getting a few events everytime you go our for a drive.
Q: How easy is it to play back the video?
A: Really easy! Just put the memory card in to your computer and you will be able to watch the videos on your desktop.
Q: Is it MAC compatible?
A: You can play the .MP4 videos files made from the DC-1 camera back on your Apple MAC computer. But if you want all the mapping, speed and GPS data you will need to use the supplied software. The viewing software is only compatible with windows based computers.
If you are in any doubt, please give us a call or send us an email.
Q: How do I remove the sticky mount?
A: The camera is deisgned to be removed from the mount. The sticky mount is designed to remain in place on your windscreen. If you need to remove the sticky mount at any time this can best be done using a hairdryer to warm it up.
