AUKEY Dual Dash Cam DRO3 is yet another dash cam released in 2018 that wants to take over the market. This gorgeous device deserves your full attention, especially if you are thinking of purchasing a camera that offers sharp nighttime recordings, almost full road coverage, and easy installation.
The Aukey Dual Dash Cam DR03 is a model released in May 2018. Since it has hit the market, the latest camera model from Aukey has managed to gather rave reviews from numerous users. Compared to its predecessor, the Aukey Dual Dash Cam DR02 D dashcam, the newer model looks better, has improved road coverage (330 degrees instead of 322), is made of higher-quality components, and is also equipped with better features.
In this AUKEY Dual Dash Cam DRO3 Review, we want to take a closer look at what Aukey DR03 offers you as a driver and discover if this product is a good fit for you. Let’s start with the looks.
Aukey Dual Dash Cam DR03 – Outstanding Design
In terms of design, the Aukey Dual Dash Cam DR03 is well ahead of most other dash cams present on the market. This device looks simply spectacular. The rounded edges, high-quality design, matte finish, large screen, and innovative suction method make this unit a must-have for drivers who want to boost the appeal of their vehicles.
This unit will increase the value of your car, that’s for sure. It will also make you feel better when picking up relatives or friends. It can easily complement a dark car interior and can make it look more professional. The upgraded 2.7” screen is much better than the average dashcam screen. It can easily show you both streams, from the camera in front and from the camera in the rear.
The image is high-quality, and the footage covers all six lanes of traffic. You can also use the screen to visualize the footage recorded by the cameras.
Ease Of Installation
In addition to its looks, Aukey Dual Dash Cam DR03 will impress you by how easy it is to install. All you need to do is to take the units out of the box, use the 3M adhesive pads to attach both cameras to your windshield and rear window, then plug in the car charger and connect each camera to the car charger using the mini-B cables in the box.
This whole operation can be completed in a matter of minutes. If you want to use the cameras in another car, take them off and follow the same installation rules. The entire process should take less than 5 minutes.
Full HD Monitoring – Both Front And Back
The Aukey DR03 records seamlessly during your ride. The front camera records at 170 degrees, while the rear one gets any detail at a wide area of 160 degrees. Together, they record a whopping 330 degrees. There are only 2 dead angles sideways of your car of around 15 degrees each.
Thanks to the wide-angle lens, the camera gets to capture crucial peripheral events that could prove invaluable in case the footage needs to be analyzed by a jury from a federal court. You can rest assured that justice will be served thanks to the footage the camera recorded.
Both cameras are equipped with Sony Exmor IMX323 sensors and Novatek NT96663 processors, being able to capture super high-quality recordings of 1080p. The optional in-car audio makes it easy for you to keep tabs on what happens outside your car and to prevent any unexpected accident.
Emergency Recording – Videos Are Locked Right Away
A great feature of this camera is the advanced emergency recording mode. Aukey DR03 functions intelligently, recording automatically events that are happening outside your car. For example, if you are driving on your lane and a driver gets in front of you and hits your vehicle, the camera records that moment and saves it in a special place. The event can only be deleted by entering the pin.
Another example of how intelligent this camera is. If it is turned off and the car is in park mode, the camera turns on and records within milliseconds if someone hits or bumps in the car. In case someone tries to hit your car accidentally and runs, you will have footage of the incident right on your SD card.
Supercapacitor – Next Level System
We all know that batteries are quite unreliable in extreme heat or cold. At over 105 degrees in summer or below 10 during cold winter months, the regular dash cams might stop working altogether. This is why the Aukey Dual Dash Cam DR03 is equipped with a next-gen supercapacitor. This makes it work perfectly, even at 10 degrees Fahrenheit, at over 105 degrees or even at -20.
The power is supplied via the USB port, so you can rest assured that the camera will never stop running. You will definitely love this feature of the camera, especially if you live in Nordic regions with harsh winters.
Aukey Dual Dash Cam DR03 Great Nighttime Recordings
In addition to all the features listed above, Aukey Dual Dash Cam DR03 will pleasantly surprise you thanks to the advanced WDR function. WDR, HDR, and other enhancements make this camera record flawlessly during the night or at dusk. You will never again miss any plate numbers or important details around your car.
The f/2.0 lens are perfect for capturing small details during the night, across all 6 lanes. The solid video evidence will back you up in case of a driving incident, accident or dispute, and will give you an unfair advantage in court.
Other Aspects Related To The Camera
Aukey DR03 is a dual dashboard camera that works only with Class 10 micro SD cards of up to 128 GB. Note that the card is not included in the package.
Aukey Dual Dash Cam DR03 Conclusion
The AUKEY 1080p Dual Dash Cam is a next-gen device that can dramatically improve the way you drive by giving you the peace of mind that you are safe. Equipped with 2 cameras, you get 330 degrees road coverage, plus excellent night vision and emergency recording.
