Pateker FVL9 Dash Cam Review

Rating: 4/5


Pros: 

  • Excellent daytime video quality
  • Adequate night video quality
  • Acceptable still photographs
  • Straightforward user interface
  • Reliable over long-term use
  • Built in battery lasts long enough to snap a few photos or a short video once the power is unplugged

Cons:

  • Size makes it visible from outside the car
  • GPS available but not included
  • Poor mounting system
  • “High Resolution” still images are just lower resolution photos that have been upsized

Summary:  The Pateker FVL9 Dash Cam does all the things that a car blackbox camera should with excellent video quality and high reliability. It makes a great day-to-day dash cam if you don’t need features like record while parked or built in GPS.
