Rear camera

The system's second camera can record the inside of your vehicle or your rear view — a smart addition for ride-share drivers or fleet vehicles. Easily adjust the viewing angle of the camera with a twist.

Document your ride

These compact cameras won't crowd your field of vision when you're driving, and their easily adjustable mounts let you tweak your viewing angle on the fly. Both cameras are fully automated and will start or stop recording once the engine is turned on or off. Their loop-recording feature will document any incidents on the road. And if you're involved in an accident, built-in G-Sensors will detect sudden acceleration or a collision, then save the critical, time- and location-stamped footage.

Parking monitoring

With hardwired power, the VREC-DZ700DC dual cam system can keep an eye on your vehicle while it's parked and the engine is off. If a vibration is detected, the system will activate and save a recording of the related incident. The next time you start your vehicle, the system will notify you that an incident has occurred.

More details on the Pioneer VREC-DZ700DC

Product Research


Camera System: The Pioneer VREC-DZ700DC two-camera system features a 1080p HD dash camera, with integrated 2" LCD display, and a 1080p HD rear-view camera. The front camera can provide a wide 160˚ diagonal view, while the rear camera can provide a wide 137˚ view behind your vehicle. Both cameras feature STARVIS back-illuminated CMOS technology that constantly adjusts the image quality to produce bright, color-rich images with fine detail that's ideal for capturing license plates, even in dark or near-infrared light conditions.

  • Dash Camera/Display: The dash cam features a 2 Megapixel CMOS sensor, for full HD 1080p recordings. The front camera also features WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) which automatically enhances and compensates overexposure or underexposure that occurs when the brightness changes suddenly, like at night when entering or exiting lighted areas. Exposure settings can also be manually adjusted in the menu settings. The dash cam features a built-in 2" LCD display for viewing either camera as well as playing back any video or pictures captured to the included micro-SD card. The front-facing camera can be rotated up to 220˚ for optimal aiming.
  • Rear Camera: The provided rear-view camera is an interior-mounted camera that can provide a constant rear-facing view of the road that can also be recorded to the dashcam's SD card. The rear camera features HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology that enables both light and dark images to be captured clearly at the same time. The rear camera connects to the dashcam via the provided 29.5' micro-B USB cable, allowing the dash cam to record both views while driving and when parked, for added security. The rear-facing camera can be rotated 360˚ for optimal aiming.

Note: The Pioneer VREC-DZ700DC is not designed to work as a backup or reverse camera and does not include a reverse wire connection.

G-Sensor: The VREC-DZ700DC features a built-in accelerometer that can sense an impact or collision, and will automatically protect video footage around the time. The G-sensor features 4 sensitivity settings, with 1 being the most sensitive and 4 the least, or can be turned off completely.

Recording Modes: The VREC-DZ700DC provides the following recording modes:

  • Video Recording: This mode is automatically activated when the engine is started. Recorded video is saved in a series of 3 minute clips, with the oldest footage getting overwritten when the included memory card is full.
  • Event Recording:
    • Automatic: The camera is constantly recording while driving and if the built-in G-sensor detects an impact, the VREC-DZ700DC will start saving footage from both cameras 20 seconds before the collision is detected and 20 seconds afterwards.
    • Manual: Recording can be done by manually pressing the Mic button located below the 2" LCD screen. This will record 20 seconds before and 20 seconds after pressing the button.
  • Parking Mode: When the power supply for the Pioneer camera system is turned off (vehicle is off), the Parking Mode can be activated for a fixed period of time, with a maximum operational time of approximately 40 minutes. When the camera's G-sensor detects vehicle movement caused by vibration while in Parking Mode, video footage 20 seconds before and 20 seconds after the event will be saved.

Note: Vibration that's detected approximately 3 minutes after the vehicle power has be turned off and for approximately 3 minutes before the power is turned on will not be captured, allowing time to enter and exit the vehicle.

  • 24/7 Security Mode: The Security Mode provides parking surveillance 24 hours a day. In this mode, the VREC-DZ700DC operates in a low-power consumption mode to reduce the risk of running the vehicle battery low. If the vehicle battery drops below 11.2V, Security Mode will be cancelled.

GPS: A GPS antenna, built into the dash camera's mounting base, lets you have your exact location, time, and date stamped to the camera's video footage.

Microphone & Speaker: The Pioneer dash-cam features a built-in speaker and microphone, allowing audio to be recorded along with video, if desired.

Photos: Photos can be taken during video recording or event recording by pressing the photo button below the LCD screen.

Storage and Filing: All recorded video and pictures are stored on the included 16GB microSDHC card. Additional micro-SDHC and micro-SDXC cards from 8GB to 128GB can be used. Each of the different types of recording files are stored in folders named for that type of recording, making it easier to review and archive footage. The 4 different storage files include: Video Recording, Event Recording, Parking Mode, and Photo.

Built-In WiFi: The VREC-DZ700DC features built-in WiFi, letting you connect your Android or Apple smartphone to view captured video footage, using the Pioneer Dash Camera app from the Apple App and Google Play stores. The Dash Camera app also lets you make manual recordings or photos, download recorded data, and set up the camera system from your smartphone.

AV Connection: An AV output on the dash cam lets you connect the provided 3.5mm TRRS (Tip/Ring/Ring/Sleeve) cable to your in-dash monitor or display headunit for viewing video and photo files. If your display doesn't have a 3.5mm AV input, a 3.5mm-to-composite video/audio adapter is provided.

Power: The VREC-DZ700DC includes a 16' power and ground cable for powering the camera system from the vehicle's fuse box or from a 12VDC power source. +12V constant, +12V switched, and ground wires are provided. The rear-view camera is powered through the 29.5' micro-B USB connection to the dash camera.

Mounting: Both the front- and rear-facing cameras include adhesive backing for attaching to the front and rear windshields. A moist cleaning wipe is included for providing a clean dry area to properly secure the cameras.


  • Dash Cam/Display: Width = 4.30", Height = 3.05", Depth = 1.65"
  • Rear Cam: Width = 2.50", Height = 1.50", Depth = 1.24"

Can the video screen be turned off or is it always off until you playback a recording?
brian  Dec 02, 2022

Greetings Brian, and thank you for your question. I reached out to Pioneer because it was nowhere to be found. Pioneer representative said the screen is always on when the unit is on.
thomas  Dec 02, 2022 (Staff)
I don't understand the difference between parking mode and security mode, can you please explain this? I am very interested is detecting and capturing video of someone hitting a parked car. Parking mode mentions a maximum operation of 40 minutes, what did this mean?
barry  Nov 08, 2022
1 answer
Greetings Barry, and thank you for your question. I had to reach out to Pioneer. The Difference between Security mode and Parking mode is Parking mode always records 24/7 or until the vehicle battery gets below 11.2 volts, and it goes into low power consumption mode. It keeps recording over non important memory, and it will stamp the incident, saving that incident, and let you know next time you start the vehicle. Parking mode records incidents like the Security mode, but you can set the parking mode to also continuously record without incident for up to that 40 minutes. It will save that 40 minute clip even though your vehicle was not touched.
thomas  Nov 08, 2022 (Staff)
Can you hook the camera to a existing car stereo that has video inputs?

Yes you can connect that dash cam to a stereo that has a video input.
arielle h  Jul 20, 2022 (Staff)
will this show someone cutting me off or driving erratically in front of me without actually hitting me?
dandepot  Jun 21, 2022

Absolutely Dan. The Sony STARVIS image sensor and Wide Dynamic Range on the Pioneer VREC-DZ700DC mean that you can see far in front or behind your ride, not just the folks that get too close for comfort! The front facing dash cam has a 160-degree viewing angle, while the rear facing cam has a 137-degree viewing angle. These are also super easy to set up and use, and when hardwired to power it can even keep an eye on your car while parked! These do give you the protection you need for whatever happens on the road.
bo  Jun 21, 2022 (Staff)
i would like a camera that records 24 hours or that is always recording. is that possible?and whats the length of recording time before it erases and starts again? thanks
ruben  Jun 10, 2022

This unit has 24/7 Security mode, which will record immediately following a "incident" and save the file. It will turn itself off if the battery voltage drops too low. It will not record non-stop. Dash cams, that can operate while the vehicle is not on, will only turn on when they are activated by their sensors. Otherwise your car's battery would be damaged and drained. The incidents are recorded and saved in this units case as if it were in standard Parking mode. More information can be found on page 27 of the manual: If you would like to explore your options and what we can/cannot do, I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question.

I have a Toyota Tundra Pickup and wondering if the cable for the rear camera will reach to the rear window of my canopy or can I add an additional cable if I come up short?
tonyi  May 20, 2022

You will have more than enough cable.
rich  May 21, 2022
I've seen Suburban SUV equipped with the same camera. My guess is if the Tundra is longer you may have to get an extension.
criz  May 21, 2022
I have a Ford F-150 4 door and had a bunch of cable left over to hide. You should have more than enough cable !
david  May 20, 2022
Can I use the rear camera as a "back up camera" with the small screen? In other words, is there a "live view" available?
steelclouds  May 18, 2022

The Pioneer VREC-DZ700DC is not designed to work as a backup or reverse camera and does not include a reverse wire connection.
thomas  May 26, 2022 (Staff)
does the camera have a night parking security feature?
alexandr  May 10, 2022
1 answer
It has a couple parking security type modes with one being called Parking Mode (best for short term parking) and the other 24/7 Security Mode (best when the vehicle will parked for extended periods of time).
jason  May 11, 2022 (Staff)
I live in the south where summer temps inside closed in vehicles can be extreme. Will camera survive these temps and will adhesive stay attached to windshield?

That's typically not an issue. According to the manual, Pioneer lists a safe operating temperature range for this camera system of 14-140 degrees Fahrenheit.
