RAC 04 Dash Cam

A great entry level dash cam

The RAC04 Dash Cam is an entry level forward facing dash cam that records in full 1080p HD.
It mounts securely to the windscreen using a suction mount and records the road ahead with a 120° wide angle lens.
A dash cam is becoming an essential driving accessory to help prove innocence in accidents and road incidents on our increasingly busy roads.
We are also starting to see insurance companies offer discounts for drivers who fit a dash cam to their vehicle.

The built-in microphone can record sound and the emergency button can be pressed to safely store a video segment and stop it being recorded over.
Photo Mode allows you to take still photos with the camera.

You can review videos and photos on the 1.5" TFT LCD colour screen and speaker.

Dash cam key features

  • 1080p HD video
  • 1.5" TFT LCD Colour Screen
  • 120° wide angle lens
  • Built-in speaker and microphone
  • Take photos and record video
How does the RAC 04 Dash Cam work?

The RAC 04 dash cam records video onto a micro SD card, which is fitted into a slot on the camera.

The amount of video stored depends on the size of SD card being used - the RAC04 can support SD cards with a capacity up to 32 GB.

The RAC 04 records in segments, the length of which is pre-set to 3 minutes, but can be adjusted using the simple menu functions of the camera.

When the SD card is full, the camera operates as a loop recording system, and will overwrite the oldest recording and continue without the need to erase or download any data.

Note on uploading videos
The USB cable supplied with your RAC Dash Cam is designed to provide power only and won't transfer files to your PC.

I can't get mine directly behind my rear view mirror as there's a plastic bit that comes down the windscreen, further down below the view below my rear view mirror. Any suggestions?

Got a similar issue - I mount ours on the passenger side high up, and point it slightly across the car (like 1/2 degrees off). These things have 120 degree vision or something silly like that, so not a problem on the passenger side, the full car is seen.

The Aukey is great if anyone is looking for one.

The N-Gage....the gaming phone which you had to hold on its side to take a call....cracking little gimmick...totally crap phone. Although was good if you knew way through Symbian and getting the games on there.

Looks promising
I have a heated front screen

Saving for one of those tiny barrel cameras but the price of this cam is a bargain if you have the room.

You simply run the wire down the trim and into your cigarette lighter/power point,i fitted both mine and my wife's dash cam and you can't even notice it,absolute piece of cake.
youtube.com/wat…ktc

Footage is OK'ish but for £17 it's worth a punt if you just want a cheap dashcam.

As for wires hanging down, just run them down the side of the screen and down the side of the dash to hide them, you can hide them under the rubber seal. Takes 5 minutes.

I just placed our dash cam's to the left or right of the plastic bit so it sits behind the rear view mirror and it's hardly noticeable,by the looks of things yours would do the same without too much overlap.

Nice little fine dropping on their doorstep soon,and thoroughly deserved too
KevinSherwin15/06/2019 23:42

🤢


Like the other guy said, they usually come with long cables and you can run it through the door trim and under the passenger side foot area, so it's barely noticeable
Are number plates readable using this? Pointless camera if not
Surely a major consideration for your dashcam buyer is that it can be located close to the glove compartment. That way, when they bash into the back of someone's car, they can quickly tuck it away..

Pop out micro SD card, which is easily lost in any accident that might be my fault.
Wonder if anyone has invented an edible micro SD card yet?
A micro SD card should pass through you without causing any issues. It’s about the same size as a Lego head but smaller, because it’s flat - some Doctors have been eating Lego heads for a while now :

Have a BMW with heated windscreen, I've fitted a barrel cam from ebay works brilliant and is unobtrusive and unlikely to be broken into, to be stolen.
How do you transfer the video to your PC then?

You can pair your phone to cam via an app or and the better way just pop the card out and into your pc via a card reader. Records individual files every X mins with date/time stamp.

Why didn't I think of that?
OOS! 😔
Tuck the wire along the headlining and hide the cable behind the door rubber then under the dash to your cigarette lighter.
Out of stock
This would also be a good cam to stick on your rear window, record and potential accidents that might hit you from the rear
Have they sorted the loop issue?

Somebody should invent a panoramic dash cam that mounts to the top of your roof.

Film in all directions.

Film everything!

Where it gives you the speed that is being driven at that time. I think its done via GPS.

Ta, no it's just a camera with time stamp.
So you can't prove what speed I was or wasn't doing, which because of the flaming taxi was exactly 0mph.

There's like a million videos on youtube telling you how to hide the wires properly, it's like a 10 minute job.
