Transcend DrivePro 230

Dashboard camera or dashcam has been around for ages but it wasn’t made popular until people started sharing road rage or accident footages on social media network. It made us realise the importance of having the crucial video evidence when undesirable commotion took place.

Special thanks to Transcend Information Inc for sending us a unit of their mid-high range dashcam – the Transcend DrivePro 230 for review. Read on to find how does the dashcam fares in our day to day drive.

Transcend has generously included a 16GB microSD card with the dashcam. The MLC-based NAND flash memory is designed for consistent long-life durability and endurance.

16GB will be enough for recording 2 hours of 1080p Full HD footage. When the memory is full, the dashcam will overwrite the oldest video.

The package I received comes with the suction mount option. There is also adhesive mount option for purchase.
