A dash cam is an on-board camera that continuously records the view through the vehicle's front windshield. The recorded footage can be used as digital evidence in the event of a road accident, break-in or vandalism. When parked, dash cams can capture video and picture evidence if vandalism is detected.
Alpine offers a high-end dash cam (DVR-F800PRO) that includes drive assist functions, as well as a regular recording model (DVR-F200). There are optional rear accessory cameras available for both models. You can use the convenient companion app to make adjustments and view recordings on the go.
Download the Alpine Dash Cam Viewer for PC or MAC from the support section below to view your recordings on your computer at home.
The DVR-F800PRO records in 1080p Full HD with 30 frames per second and features the Sony Exmores STARVIS image sensor for excellent recording quality even at night. This allows you to record important details such as vehicle number plates to have a solid proof of events in a court of law. GPS geo-information and driving speed are recorded as well.
After you enter your vehicle and start your engine, the dash cam will automatically start recording. Recorded videos are saved in one-minute segments with an auto-looping mechanism. In case of an accident, the Active Impact Monitoring System will automatically store the video data ten seconds prior to and after a collision registered by the 3-axis G-Sensor. The DVR-F800PRO comes with a 32GB micro SD card.
The Sony Exmor R STARVIS Image Sensor applied to the DVR-F800PRO provides rich colors and the optimal resolution. STARVIS technology improves low light sensitivity by providing optimal image quality in visible ray and near-infrared range, allowing clear imaging in low light environments.
Using the GPS data from the DVR-F800PRO, you can precisely pinpoint the vehicle’s location and routes with its driving speed on the map. GPS helps you accurately assess the status of an accident by providing you with the vehicle speed, the direction of the collision and the severity of impact. The GPS location can be seen on the digital map in the Dash Cam Viewer.
The intuitive and simple-to-use interface of the Alpine Dash Cam Viewer for PC and MAC allows you to easily view your recorded videos. Playback and download recorded videos along with your route history and speed recording and see, if any videos have been tagged by the camera with a recorded impact by another car (parking mode). You can also change the dash cam settings or format the memory card. You can download the Alpine Dash Cam Viewer from the support section below.
The DVR-F800PRO is packed with additional technology to support you while driving and keep you safe. Lane Departure Warning alerts you of if your vehicle moves out of its lane. Forward Collision Warning helps to prevent or reduce the severity of a collision. Front Vehicle Departure Notification lets the driver know the vehicle in front is pulling away from an intersection. You can also upload a speed camera database to the DVR-F800PRO to receive warnings when you approach a speed camera or red light camera.
Drowsy or distracted driving greatly increases the chance of an accident on the road. The Lane Departure Warning System will alert the driver when the vehicle goes off lane in a speed over 50 km/h.
Accidents can be avoided by maintaining a safe following distance. The Forward Collision Warning System of the DVR-F800PRO calculates the real-time distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you, while driving above 30 km/h in highways or under 30 km/h in a busy city, and issues a 3-level early warning to the driver depending on the danger of collision.
When your car is stopped at an intersection or in traffic, the intelligent guidance system informs you that the vehicle in front has started to move, preventing a delayed response just in case you stopped looking ahead.
You can download the speed camera database here to receive in-time warnings when approaching speed cameras or red light cameras at intersections (legal operation of this function is subject to local traffic law).
The DVR-F800PRO includes parking mode that keeps your car under surveillance even at night. If any impact by another car, bike, etc is noted, the camera will store this video footage and you can review it later to identify and proof what happened. The camera will notify you in the morning of any recorded incidences during the night.
Download the ’Thinkware Dash Cam Mobile Viewer’ app from the Apple App Store or Google Play to check, download or delete recordings. You can also see a live view of your dash cam (very convenient when you install and setup your camera) on your Smartphone. Your phone will connect to the Dash Cam using WiFi technology.
Alpine offers a rear-view accessory camera (RVC-R800) that simultaneously records the traffic through your rear window. This gives you an extra layer of security while driving, as well as in parking surveillance mode. If you need more data storage, get the 64GB micro SD card (DVM-64SD).
Many dash cams interfere with the signal reception of DAB and DVB-T tuners. The Alpine Dash Cams generate very low electric noise and therefore do not harm your digital radio and TV signal reception in the car.
The DVR-F800PRO includes a hard-wire harness to connect your camera directly to the vehicles battery, as well as a cigarette lighter plug harness for easy DIY installation.
