The dash cam has two views: A front facing and rear facing camera. They use 160-degree lenses for a wide viewing angle, ensuring you capture all aspects of your drive. The footage is recorded at 30 frames per second, at a maximum resolution of 2592x1944p. Users can set the resolution lower if they do not need such high-quality video.
In addition to being able to record high-quality video, the dash cam also has what are called Sony Starvis sensors, allowing even small details to be seen, such as the writing on signage along the roads. It also features technology onboard to capture usable footage even in nighttime conditions.
The Vantrue E2, like other models from the company, has a parking mode, so you are able to record even when your car is parked. It is able to detect motion near your vehicle, so you are not constantly recording and wasting energy.

The dash cam uses a microSD card (not included with purchase), that can hold up to 512gb of storage. Once it reaches full capacity, it will engage looping mode, meaning it will begin overwriting the earliest footage. However, there is one exception to this.
A G-sensor is present on the dash cam, which is able to detect when the vehicle has been in a collision. If the sensor detects such an incident, it will not overwrite the footage captured during said incident. Instead, it locks that footage so you are able to extract it later.
The Vantrue E2 dash cam is a great option for many drivers. It has both front and rear cameras, the ability to save footage from a collision automatically, a parking mode with motion detection, high storage capacity (although you do have to buy said storage separately), and excellent quality video (>>> Find the current price on Vantrue).
While the use of a supercapacitor has led to some reports of the dash cam overheating, this does not appear to be a major problem. Moreover, the supercapacitor allows for longer use as opposed to a traditional battery.
