If I have 360 panoramic images, do I still need a driving recorder

by Leona Lee on January 29, 2023

Both the 360 panoramic image and the driving recorder can protect the driving safety of the driver. For many novice car owners, the functions of these two are not well understood. So if there are 360 panoramic images, do we still need to add a driving recorder?

The answer is yes, because the functions of the two are completely different.

The 360-degree panoramic image cannot replace the driving recorder. The 360-degree panoramic image can observe the surrounding conditions of the vehicle in an all-round way. It appears in the form of a bird's-eye view and can switch other cameras at the same time.

The driving recorder is a device that records the situation and sound in the driving (in front of the car, or in the car, or behind the car) in real time, and can playback the content of the driving recorder.


The functional difference between the 360-degree panoramic recorder and the driving recorder:

  1. The monitoring time is different: the 360-degree panoramic recorder is directly connected to the car battery for power supply to keep working after parking and turning off the engine, and can record the situation after parking 24 hours a day. Although the driving recorder has a built-in battery, the driving recorder also has a parking recording function, but if the vehicle power supply system is powered off, the time will not be too long. The recording time depends on the size of the battery, and it can record for 1-2 hours at most. about.

  1. Different viewing angles: The 360-degree panorama recorder has four cameras, which can record the four directions of the vehicle, front, rear, left, and right respectively, and the 4-way display is seamlessly spliced. The driving recorder is installed on the front windshield. Most users use only one camera, some users also use two-way recorders, with front and rear cameras, and some users use three-way recorders, including front, interior and The rear camera has less angle of view than the 360 panorama recorder.

  1. Different additional functions: the 360-degree panorama recorder is not only a panoramic driving assistance system, but also a 4-way driving recorder system. It integrates resources to help customers save money and reduce costs to the greatest extent. Compared with audio reversing radar, it is more intuitive and safer. Panoramic bird's-eye view of the car: it has three trigger signals, signal lines for reversing, turning left, and turning right, forced to start, responding to the corresponding screen, and raising the safety of driving, parking, and reversing to the highest level. Accidents can be prevented.

The 360 panoramic view can prevent collisions, assist novice drivers to park, and provide 24-hour comprehensive monitoring, while ordinary driving recorders can record after accidents.
