Who doesn't like a two-for-one? myGEKOgear's OwlScout dual camera system incorporates front- and rear-facing cameras into one chassis with a 2.7" LCD monitor. You'll gain a splitscreen view of the road ahead and the interior of your vehicle to document every second of every journey. The front camera provides a 145° view and a clear picture, night or day, thanks to a high-quality Sony Exmor sensor and infrared night-vision.
This camera's built-in G-Sensor will detect hard braking or a collision, then preserve a complete record of the event that can only be overwritten manually. You can play the footage back on the cam's display, and the video saves to the microSD™ card for viewing on another device. myGEKOgear includes a 16GB microSD card for video storage, but if you need more, you can step up your storage all the way up to 64GB.
Built-in Wi-Fi and myGEKOgear's app on your phone makes it simple to transfer essential video to wherever it's most useful.
Plus, built-in GPS geo-stamps your video files with accurate time, date, location data, and vehicle speed.

More details on the myGEKOgear OwlScout
Overview: The OwlScout from myGEKOgear is a high-performance dual-view dash camera that captures what's happening inside and outside your vehicle. The camera has a front-facing lens with a view of the road ahead, and a rear-facing lens that captures what happening inside. The camera records Full HD video at 1080p 30 fps, while the integrated microphone records the audio inside the vehicle. The OwlScout is powered by a 12-volt power adapter, which also charges the built-in 170mAh Lithium-ion rechargeable battery.
Dual Cameras: The OwlScout's front-facing camera has a Sony Exmor CMOS image sensor for bright, detailed video, even in low-lighting situations. The ultra-wide angle lens has a 145° horizontal and 140° vertical viewing angle so you get a good view of everything in front of the vehicle. The rear-facing camera's 145° viewing angle is important to rideshare drivers who want to capture video footage of everything happening inside the cabin. The inside camera features night vision to give you the ability to shoot clear video inside a dark car. In the menu, you can select between NTSC and PAL modes, and between 50Hz and 60Hz frequency. File lengths can be set to 3 minutes, 5 minutes, or 10 minutes in length.
Photos: In addition to recording video, the OwlScout can take still photos (JPEG). Images can be set to Fine, Normal, or Economy quality, and you can select Color, Black&White, or Sepia. You can choose from the following image sizes: 12M (4032 x 3024), 10M (3648 x 2736), 8M (3264 x 2448), 5M (2592 x 1944), 3M (2048 x 1536), 2MHD (1920 x 1080), VGA (640 x 480), or 1.3M 1280 x 960. If desired, you can delay the image capture (self-timer) by 2 sec, 5 sec, or 10 sec.
G-Sensor: The camera's built-in G-sensor detects the impact when an accident occurs. This triggers the camera to automatically save the video files before and after the event. In addition, you can enable the Parking Monitor feature that starts a recording when it detects an impact to your parked vehicle (requires constant power). You can adjust the sensor's sensitivity to Low, Medium, High, or Off.
Wi-Fi: The camera has built-in Wi-Fi, allowing you to connect with your iOS or Android smartphone. With the myGEKOgear app, you can view, playback, and transfer your videos wirelessly to your device. The myGEKOgear app is compatible with iOS (requires version 9.0 or later) and Android (4.1 and up).
GPS: The OwlScout by myGEKOgear has built-in GPS that gathers location data, as well as speed, time, and date information. This data is embedded in the video it records, giving you a reliable record of your location, speed, direction of travel, date, and time, in case you have an accident. You can turn off the time/date stamp, if desired.
Exposure Adjustments: In the menu, you can set the exposure compensation for videos and photos between -2.0 EV and +2.0 EV in 1/3-EV increments.
Motion Detection: The camera features a motion detector that will trigger the recorder to start recording when movement is detected. You can turn the Motion Detection feature on or off, as desired.
microSD Slot: The camera captures the video, audio, and GPS data onto a microSD card. Video files are recorded in a seamless loop, and as the card fills up, it loops back and begins recording over the oldest unsaved clip. The card slot will support Class 10 microSD cards up to 64 GB. A 16 GB card and an SD card adapter are included.
Power Requirement: The OwlScout dual dash camera can be powered by a built-in 380mAh rechargeable battery or the supplied DC power adapter. The battery charges in approximately 2 hours, and provides approximately 20 minutes of recording time. The included DC power adapter plugs into your vehicle's DC power port, and has an 11.25' cable.
