I have something really cool to share with you today! Check out my new car dash cam from AmorTek!! This dash cam is so cool!! It not only captures videos in HD but it has 4X zoom lens. This dash cam even has NIGHT VISION!!
I love this camera! I’m a huge techie geek so when I was offered the chance to review the AmorTek Dash Cam I jumped at the chance. Setting up the camera was easy by just pushing buttons and reading the menu. The instruction manual wasn’t easy to follow, good thing that I love to push buttons and explore on my own!
Driving in Southern California is well, a lot of stop and go; as in stop and then go 70 miles an hour. This dash cam gives me piece of mind that if I ever get in an accident I’ll be able to show how the actual event in real time. The dash cam records in 1, 3 or 5 minute increments and then immediately starts a new video. Once the 8GB stick is full the dash cam films over the oldest video and keeps going in this cycle. The camera will even record audio!!
My favorite reason though is just the ride. As a driver you don’t always get to enjoy the ride. I can’t wait to take this little gem to Yosemite with us. The scenery will be amazing!! My daily commute isn’t really a scenic drive but at least you will be able to see the picture quality.
I complied 7 videos into just one. I didn’t want to scare anyone with my driving so I didn’t add the bumper to bumper from my morning commute. I just wanted to show you how awesome the video quality is on this dash cam!!
The camera arrives with an in-car charging cable attached to a very long cord, a cord so long that I could stick the camera on the back window of my Honda CRV. The cord has the 12v auxiliary plug on one end. Works fine in a cigarette lighter plug. The swivel suction mount has the strongest suction power!! I’ve had my camera on my windshield for almost 3 weeks and it’s still staying strong even though it’s been very hot here in California.
The dash cam also comes the 8GB micro SD card pre-installed which is good for 70 minutes of video before the camera starts over. If you want more video time grab a 64GB stick for 280 minutes of video. There is also a mini USB cable which is great for transferring video to my computer. Also included is the user manual.

I’m loving the camera! I am thoroughly impressed with the video quality. If I were to be in a car accident I truly believe that anyone watching the video would be able to see the accident in stunning HD! The instruction manual needs some help. It’s hard to follow. I’m also not really crazy about the cord that attaches to the camera, there is no internal battery for the camera so it has to be plugged in at all times. Those are small whines, I’m crazy thrilled with the dash cam!!
