I recently installed a dash cam that I purchased on sale and wanted to share the video quality and some of the key lessons I’ve learnt. The dashcam model is UL-TECH 1080p (you can get the same camera here: https://ebay.to/3iZ09kU) and the box included a Front and Rear camera, 32 GB MicroSD card, windscreen suction mount and the cables. Here are all the items that were included:
The unit comes with the following features:

Images is commonly overexposed in the strong sunshine, and hardly to be taken in the dim light conditions, WDR capability gets the issue resolved.
Connect to PC – Insert TF card case with a USB cable to connect computers , you can watch or copy videos to your computer.
Here’s a video of unboxing the dash cam and also the video quality that I recorded.
In summary, the quality for the front camera was good during the day and at night. The number plates were readable. However, for the rear camera, the quality wasn’t that great and you can sort of make out the number plate during the day and at night you won’t be able to read any.
I installed the front dash cam on the left hand side of the rear view mirror.
I didn’t get a chance to film installing the cameras because I needed to use both hands. I basically routed all the cables and tucked them away near the rubber trims and any gaps I could find.
The cables were easy to install except for the one located at the rear. There is a section on the cable for the rear camera that just sticks out. I’m assuming that this should have been mounted inside one of the trims. I didn’t use any additional tools besides my fingers to run the cables.
Here’s a photo of the rear camera.
The package also included a double-sided tape which I used to stick the rear camera to the inside roof. It also came with some screws but I decided not to make any holes on the material. If it was an older car, I would have screwed the rear camera to the ceiling of the car because the double-sided tape wasn’t strong enough. I ended up using a stronger 3M double side tape because the one that it came with wasn’t strong enough.
For now, this is a good enough dash cam and I do hope to upgrade to the BlackVue in the near future as the video quality and features is much better than the UL-TECH.
