Test 2 Connectivity
Ways to get at your footage
As well as all featuring GPS so your camera can pinpoint your location at any point, a growing number of dashcams – the Asus, Transcend and Snooper ones here – feature Wi-Fi connectivity that you can enable at will (Asus has a dedicated button for this). This is primarily designed for easy downloading of footage, normally to an iOS or Android app; you’ll need to connect your iOS device to the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi network. This is great if you’re involved in an incident as you can immediately back up the appropriate video segment. The police often want dashcam footage submitted to them, or will want your MicroSD card. All the cameras feature Mini- or Micro-USB connectors that plug in to your Mac using a standard cable (included). Equally, you can put the MicroSD card in a card reader, as it works just like a digital camera.
