How Honda DVR will change the way you keep your car secured

You’ve heard of the line, “Pics, or it didn’t happen.” However, when you own a car, sometimes photos do not tell the whole story. Instead, video recordings are the way to go. These days, furnishing your car with a digital video recorder (DVR), or dashcam, is only sensible since your Honda car deserves the best, especially when the unthinkable happens.

That’s why the Honda DVR is equipped to record in full High Definition (1080p), so it can capture the full spectrum of any situation. The saying goes: “There are two sides to any story, and the truth is somewhere in the middle.” With a video recording of an accident, there won’t be any ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ when it comes to disputes—even more so when it is captured with crystal clarity. With the Emergency Video Auto Locking, the system will also preserve the captured video, saving it in a specified file so that the file would not be lost or overwritten in the event of an accident.

Even when your journey is pleasant all the way through, the DVR can prove to be an asset. If you’re taking a particularly scenic route, don’t worry about losing the chance to take all the beauty in. The DVR captures the breathtaking journey of your drive, so you can appreciate the view afterwards when you review your video files.

If you’re the creative type to create a video of a trip, the feed from the DVR might just add the depth you need to craft the perfect video of the memory. You might even find some impressive shots to freeze and add into your Instagram posts. Fret not about the quality; remember, everything—even pictures—is captured in full HD!

On top of superb visual quality, the DVR also provides Audio Recording to provide you with a comprehensive recollection of your journey. You never know when the sounds of your surroundings can sway a situation, so it is best that you have all the bases covered.

Accessibility and convenience are top tier when it comes to the DVR. It can be connected to your phone via an app, so whenever you need to check on the recorder, or if you want to check on the feed, you can easily do so with a few taps of your mobile screen.

The DVR is always ready, and by that, we mean that it also has a 24/7 Standby Mode. The 24/7 Standby Mode functions like this: When your car is parked and the engine is switched off, the DVR goes into “standby mode”, where it is not recording everything when it’s parked. Instead, it only starts recording when an impact to your vehicle is detected, and the DVR springs into action to save the event into the memory card. This way, you won’t have hours and hours’ worth of unnecessary content on the DVR, and only events of interest are saved for your review. This feature can provide evidence for insurance claims on hit-and-runs, even when you’re not in the driver’s seat. Since it also doubles as a surveillance system, you can have peace of mind whenever you leave your Honda unattended.

For every Honda DVR installation, you get a three-year warranty* or 100,000 km mileage*, whichever comes first, for the accessory. The installation is available for all Honda models and it won’t affect your car warranty as it is done by a Honda Authorised Dealer.
