I will be using a 128GB Samsung Evo Plus Pro microSD card for the recordings.
Front cam recorded in H.264 2560×1440 28fps with an overall bitrate of 22.0 Mb/s.
Rear cam recorded in H.264 1920×1080 30fps with an overall bitrate of 8,837 kb/s.
Akeeyo is a dashcam brand from Japan
The AKY-D9’s front camera got a clear video quality. The rear cam’s video quality is OK to me.
The AKY-D9 is not a true 4K dashcam as it is using a Sony IMX335 Exmor R Starvis sensor, not an 8MP sensor that can record in true 4K resolution.
The HUD is simple and clean as it displays the time and speed.
Really like the magnetic GPS mount as it is easy to take down the AKY-D9 without much effort while the strong magnets hold it in place the whole time.
The gesture control allows you to take a photo all by swiping your hand underneath the AKY-D9 but I wish can set it to do an emergency recording.
