Digital Camera World Verdict

A fantastic system that records in high resolution with HDR, produces impressive low-light footage, and is a breeze to install and set up. All those cables can get messy though, so pay for a professional installation if you can.

If you were to build a three-channel dash cam system with the best possible specification, yet stick to a sensible price, this might just be it. It’s the latest flagship from Viofo and boasts 4K recording forwards, 2K recording to the rear, and a Full HD view with infrared night vision of the interior.

But what makes the dash cam stand out most are the new Sony Starvis 2 imaging sensors Viofo has fitted to both the forwards- and rear-facing cameras. These promise to improve low-light performance and reduce grain, making for clearer video recordings.

Viofo A229 Plus

The Viofo A229 Plus is the less expensive version of the A229 Pro, with the key difference being that this has a lower-quality 2K front camera. It is available as either a 2-camera or a three-camera kit.
