Kenwood keeps you alert
This dashcam provides two key features that’ll help you drive more safely:
- Collision Avoidance Warning provides you with audible alerts if you’re traveling too close to the vehicle ahead of you.
- Departure Delay Warning gives you a heads up when you’re stopped if traffic in front of you has started to move again.
Everything you’d expect from a dashcam
The Kenwood DRV-N520’s fully automated camera will start recording once the engine is turned on and stop when the engine is turned off. When you’re driving, this camera records a high-resolution, Full HD, wide-angle view of the road to keep a record of anything unexpected. High Dynamic Range technology compensates for sudden lighting changes to ensure you’re always recording the best picture possible.
If you’re in an accident…
If you’re involved in an accident, this device’s built-in G-Sensor will detect hard braking or a collision, then save the last, current, and next recordings, preserving a complete record of the event. Video is saved to the included microSD™ card for playback, using the Kenwood Drive Reviewer PC software. You can also set the DRV-N520 to record when the ignition is off — a built-in motion sensor will activate when triggered and record whatever (or whomever) is on the other side of the windshield.
3 Megapixel Recording
3 Megapixel Recording provides higher resolution than Full HD (1920 x 1080).
Capable of capturing a clear image of a license plate
HDR (High Dynamic Range) for Backlighting
Easily records clear images in dark or well-lit environments without underexposing or overexposing the image.
Equipped with a wide-angle lens
The wide-angle lens (horizontal: approx. 117°; vertical: approx. 63°) captures video from a broad viewing perspective.
Accident Avoidance Features for Safer Driving
Equipped with the latest in accident avoidance sensor technology.
Collision Avoidance works at 20 MPH and up.
When your vehicle is at a full stop and the car in front of you starts to move forward, the departure delay warning sounds if your car fails to move forward. The system will also provide a warning if your vehicle starts to move backward.
