Transcend launches DrivePro 230 dashcam

Posted on Jun 18 2017 - 10:01am by Upgrade Staff

Transcend Information, manufacturer of storage and multimedia products, introduced the DrivePro 230 dashcam. Equipped with a Sony Exmorsensor, the dashcam captures high-resolution images with fine tonal gradation even in low light. Among the device’s other features are a GPS receiver, a G-sensor, a high-capacity Li-polymer battery, a convenient snapshot button, and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Transcend’s DrivePro 230 features a Sony Exmor sensor that captures high-resolution images with rich color even in low light. Built-in Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology balances the brightest and dimmest areas of captured images. The camera can clearly record details such as license plate numbers at 30 fps at 1080p Full HD.

In addition to on-the-road safety, Transcend’s DrivePro 230 stands sentry when the vehicle is parked at a public parking lot or on a roadside. When parked, the driver can enable the motion detection function or the time-lapse video recording function. The former activates recording when motion is detected; the latter enables users to get right to the heart of the matter without needing to view hours of incident-free footage.

The DrivePro 230’s GPS receiver can log GPS coordinates, date, and time into recorded video footage. The DrivePro Toolbox enables the full review of a trip, including GPS position, speed, and time of day.

Transcend’s DrivePro 230 also comes equipped with a Lane Departure Warning System, which checks for, and alerts a driver to, sudden changes in speed and lane. The Forward Collision Warning System warns a driver when the driving speed exceeds a preset value, such that the vehicle is getting too close to the car ahead. The system will in either case alert a driver with a warning sound and an onscreen alert. When the DrivePro detects poor lighting conditions, the Headlight Reminder will be activated. To help prevent tired drivers from getting into an accident, the Driver Fatigue Alert regularly reminds a driver of the need to rest after driving for a preset, driver-determined period of time.

TheDrivePro Toolbox features a sorting function to locate video clips by filename, recording date, or group. The DrivePro Toolbox also provides a screenshot function allowing for the capture of a single frame that can be tailored so that users can find the shot they are seeking. The DrivePro 230 also comes equipped with Wi-Fi connectivity that works with both Apple iOS and Android devices through the free DrivePro 230 app.

The DrivePro 230 dashcam is backed by Transcend’s two-year Limited Warranty.
