Should you have an accident, G sensors in the camera automatically lock the currently recorded section from 30 seconds prior to 2 minutes after the incident so that the key video segment cannot be erased or recorded over thus giving you a permanent record of the event.

Tom Malone, President of VOXX Electronics Corp, commented, “The DVR 700 is our first HD camera developed for dashboard recording of the events that occur in front of a moving vehicle and we expect it to be as successful as the our ADAS back up cameras that launched this category for us years ago. Drivers are coming to rely on technology to help them operate their vehicles with optimum safety and convenience and we as leaders in the aftermarket category continue to provide those products.”

The DVR700 small chassis size allows almost stealth like installation so as not to draw attention to the device and when mounted behind or above the rear view mirror it will not interfere with the drivers view. The unit features a built-in rechargeable battery, includes a 8GB Micro SD Card, and supports Micro SD cards up to 32GB allowing up to 16 hours of continuous recording. It provides date and time stamp on the recording for easy reference.

Also included is a cigarette lighter adapter and a direct wire power cable with video output connections. The DVR700 HD delivers 720p HD resolution (1280*720) and is only 1.5” x 2.5” in size with a flat back finish to make it very discrete in the vehicle. The DVR700 HD is now available at select Mobile Electronics Retailers throughout the country for an MSRP of $199.99.
