Many modern dash cams aren’t only reliant on a screen. Instead, they have built-in wifi that your phone can connect to, allowing you to download and share footage easily.
When retrieving footage from your mobile app, the first thing to do is to search and download your dash cam’s app from the app store.
Next, connect your smartphone to the camera’s wifi. Some cameras will have a wifi button that will need to be pressed to turn it on, some will leave the wifi always-on.
Once connected, you can now access your dash cam's video library through the app. Simply select the video you want to watch and use the app to stream the footage directly on your mobile phone. This streaming is seamless and quick, but you are also able to download video files to share with others through email or messaging apps easily.
Compared to viewing footage on the dash camera’s display, dash cam apps are designed to be intuitive, making it easy for anyone to navigate their features and retrieve specific video clips. Moreover, sharing footage with law enforcement, insurance companies, or friends and family is a breeze through this platform.
