    After dealing with some personal and family related issues I have been looking to get it back in gear here helping get information out about new gadgets. Thankfully Sandy from Vantrue contacted me and was kind enough to provide me with a N2 Pro Dual Dash Cam to take a look at. Lets take a look at what we have here.

    Seems like the one I have might have trouble adjusting to light.

    Notes
    The camera body it self has a nice rubberized grip feeling to it. I'm not a huge fan of the pin mount in general, but that is only because I can't dual lock it as easily as I can with other mounts.

    The suction cup holds strong though. My only honest complaint with the mount is that the cable goes into the side of the mount and not the top. So if you have the camera plugged in through the mount it makes it harder to lock and unlock the mount because you have to grab at the top and turn which has a less surface area to grab onto to turn. This makes me plug directly into the camera.

    Still trying to figure out why my front camera seems to look the way it does.
    EDIT Just updated the firmware on 8/24 will test again

    Wish the screen auto off was a little lower. Lowest setting is 1min.

    Just for giggles I put it on the inside of my T-Top. Not as exciting as I had hoped. The camera sits too high and catches mostly the roof liner.

    The little door where the SD card goes is a good idea. In the picture I took i popped it all the way off, but if you do it right it actually pops up and swivels. Really neat.

    When you get the chance it would be nice to see some interior clips both day and night :D With the IMX323 sensor it should do good in darkness which could make this one the current leader in "Taxi" cams- a rather poorly addressed segment of the Dashcam market. Also a bit about GPS performance if you have that option :)

    The driving vid you posted isn't impressive- colors seem over-saturated or possibly all is overexposed- but it's good enough for general driving protection. Again looking froward to seeing what it can do at night :)

    Good to see you active here again :cool:

    Added a still for now. I'm not a huge fan of being on camera myself, but i'll see what I can do.
    I don't believe I do. My mount feels very light, and the tip of it seems to be different from the GPS mount they sell for the camera in their Amazon store front.
    This is what I thought as well. I have only had it for about a day at this point, but it seems like it would make a good camera for someone who ride shares, rents cars, or rents out cars
    We are on the same wavelength here as well. I have it set to zero at the moment. I might turn it down a little and see how it gets along. At dusk the sky looks a little blown out too. I wonder if bumping the bitrate up will make things a little better.

    Thanks

    Does parking mode only trigger on the front cam or does it trigger on rear (cabin) cam also?

    How does the video quality compare to the 119/119S?
