Turn your phone into a dashboard camera with DashCam Pro

Dashboard cameras are one way to provide evidence of what happened during a collision or fender bender. They can also document your driving habits, as well as, rare moments that occur on the road. If you are looking to turn your BlackBerry 10 device into a simple dashboard camera, there is DashCam Pro by Toysoft Development Inc. This easy-to-use app allows you to record live video (with audio) and take snapshots with date/time stamp, GPS coordinates, and traveling speed for both business and personal use.

The app offers a clean interface. Once the app loads it is ready to record. You can adjust the screen size and resolution, switch the camera (front/back), change the shooting mode (i.e., action, close-up, night, etc.), and add a video light. These can be modified using the onscreen controls. Additional options, including text color/position, video frame rate, and save to, can be found in Settings. By using the blue buttons at the bottom of the screen, you can take a snapshot or record video.

Features

  • Real time water mark of date time stamp, GPS coordinates and speed on the actual video
  • Settable video resolution from low to HD eg: 1080, 720, 640x480
  • Settable video frame rate. 30, 25, 20, 15, 10 frames per second
  • Turn on and off video light
  • Take screen shot of the current video frame
  • Zoom in and out
  • Support front and back cameras
  • Settable text color for timestamp and GPS text on the video
  • Settable text location. E.g., top left, bottom left, top right, bottom right
  • Settable record time limit from 5 minutes to 20 minutes. DashCam Pro will save the video and start recording again
  • Private mode to hide the video preview
  • No need to purchase an expensive hardware
  • Record to device or SD Card

For best recording results, the developer recommends using a camera mount. If you do, be sure to comply with the windshield mounting laws in your state (for those in the United States).

DashCam Pro also serves another purpose. You may also use it as a normal camera app to watermark your videos with a date/time stamp. You can find it in BlackBerry World for $1.99.
