Video Transcript

hey everyone welcome back to the channel today we're going to kick things off with a little bit of truck content in my freezing cold shop that you can see my breath in that I'd really like to heat but it's kind of expensive anyway I noticed that less than 1% of you are actually subscribed to the channel and if you wouldn't mind just hit that little subscribe button down below it's free and you can check out some more of my content because it'll be there in the list and you can see the other videos there so I took a road trip about three or four months ago a couple thousand miles and a couple weeks and I thought you know hey it'd be pretty nifty to have a dash cam so I started looking around and kind of forgot about it and never bought one and went on the road trip anyway but recently ly a company reached out to me and said hey would you like to try our dash cam and I said yeah sure I'd love to try our dash cam so they sent it to me and it's this it's a fit cam X and I'll tell you what it looks like the truck came from the factory with a dash cam in it I was quite impressed I put a link to this camera down in the description below but stick around to the end of the video I have a discount code for you and you can save some money on this thing let's go unbox it now now here's the camera you see it's 4K has a Wi-Fi connection uh does loop recording has a wide angle and it has a g sensor which I guess if you get into a collision it'll lock that video file so it won't get overwritten in the loop and I did take the plastic off of this before this video see what's in here here's the wire to plug into your mirror harness I'm not quite sure what this is for it looks like they give you a card reader that's nice and a trim Tool The Big Box must be the camera here looks like part of the trim here's the camera itself you can see the camera is right in here in the it's got a couple of buttons here and it's got a SD card already in it and that's a 64 gig SD card that comes with it that's pretty nice looks like a fairly nicely done trim Plastics pretty nice and the user manual all right let's go put it in all right here's going to be the hardest part of this I've had this down before I think you just pry yeah each side off there we go this actually a two-piece that surrounds the mirror so there's that one that's broken there we go so the hardest part of this so far was getting these little rubber pieces back into the new trim and what I did is I took a little grease on the back and they slipped right in so just a little tip there I think the next step here is to plug this wire in figure out how that goes right that was easy enough let me reroute this a little bit get this guy plugged good go all right let plug it in there all right so we got that installed now we're going to read the directions here good can [Music] X all right here is the y we'll install that let's open the app agree I suppose connect to fit cam X I think we need to start the truck for [Music] this push the button maybe there is a light on there St the camera and power it on is there a light there I can't see it there there it is Select camera WiFi and connect all right I don't know what the password is 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 connect cannot connect there we go okay hold it up oh one thing important thing we forgot to do pull that off there we go so there's the first images with the camera there that was easy enough to do there's some of the settings Loop [Music] recording this version does not have parking guard because it doesn't have a full-time 12vt connection but or whatever it is up there so we don't have that that seemed easy enough to do and it's actually recording right now so the camera's all installed looks good nice Factory fit it's really not noticeable at all that it's there unless you're really looking for it so the camera is all installed now the only thing left to do is to test it so I'll be back with you in about a week or two which will be instantaneous for you and I'll give you some footage to look at and my final thoughts on the camera so I've had this camera installed for about a week and I've put it through its paces and here's some video from that now so since this is a 4k camera the quality is there and the level of detail is actually really good you can see street sign names license plates details like that and I tested this in different conditions you know daytime uh low light levels nighttime even a little bit of snow and the quality is very good even in uh low lighting conditions that seem to pick up quite a bit of detail it's a 170° wide angle lens so while you can see the front of the vehicle very well and what's in front of you you can also see quite a bit of the sides in the front which is really nice I really appreciate how this camera installs I like gadgets and electronic things but I don't like a lot of clutter all over my dashboard so that's where this camera really shines in my opinion is that it looks like it came from the factory that way which I really like installation was really simple and like anything good it just does its job and I don't see it I don't pay attention to it it's just there and it does its thing and I don't ever have to worry about it I really don't have anything to compare this dash cam to because I've never used one before this is my first time but I would say that the build quality is excellent the image quality is very good it does what it's supposed to do it films things it turns on when it's supposed to it turns off when it's supposed to it was easy to install and easy to use and I think it's a pretty great camera if you'd like to get a camera like this for your vehicle I've put a link down in the description below for this particular model but they
