GCH Automotive is perhaps the first supplier to offer vehicle specific DVRs that match the aesthetics of the car and also integrate into the car radio.
It’s new WiFi DVRs for the car will be on display at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas next week.
The first of the new DVRs will be available for BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Toyota and Honda vehicles.
They will include composite video outputs so they can act as front cameras and connect to a factory radio screen, which then becomes your viewing screen.
With WiFi, they can pair with your phone to allow viewing of DVR video on your smartphone,
The system fits around the base of the rear view mirror with a feed cable to the headliner for hiding wires.
“The DVR hasn’t made a full penetration into the US car market, where internationally its required by law in many countries,” said GCH’s Greg Delgado. “The only available DVRs are dash mounted. We want them to be more aesthetically pleasing, so we’ve designed them with factory fitted plastic to look like they are part of the vehicle.”
The car-specific DVRs have G shock and motion sensors and a parking lot mode that permits DVR monitoring even after you’ve left the car.
The DVRs as well as other products including new navigation interfaces for the 2016-17 Honda Pilot and Ridgeline and 2017 Honda Civic will be on view at the GCH booth 12065 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, November 1-4.
