RoadHawk DC-2 Dash-Cam
This is the RoadHawk DC-2 forward-facing dash-cam which replaced the best-selling DC-1. Offering up to 1080p resolution (scalable to 720p or 480p for longer record times), low-light sensor, GPS receiver, G-force sensor, SDXC memory compatibility and image stabilisation, this camera is a huge increase in performance over the DC-1 dash-cam whilst offering many of the facilities of the impressive RoadHawk HD.
The camera works on a loop recording system, overwriting the oldest files as it records. If it detects an impact, the camera creates an ‘event’ file. Event files are not overwritten unless they exceed 40% of the capacity of the memory card, at which point the oldest file will be overwritten first.
Options include: GPS antenna, remote event trigger, alarm output trigger (to fit many tracking systems), locking box and suction mount.
Small and Unobtrusive Design
RoadHawk dash-cams are designed based on the feedback from our customers and are compatible with construction in use regulations for motor vehicles, which ensures that when fitted correctly they are legal to use and will not fail an MOT or leave you contravening VOSA regulations. The DC-2 uses the provided 3M adhesive pad to mount the camera behind your rear view mirror. Enough cable is provided to route the power to the camera around the screen and to the accessory socket, making the installation look professional and virtually impossible to see. Most drivers will not see the camera from a normal driving position.
Most customers tell us they can install the RoadHawk dash-cam themselves out of the box in under 15 minutes.
The RoadHawk DC-2 dash-cam can also be easily wired directly to your car or vehicle using an optional hard wiring kit.
Ultra-High Video Quality
RoadHawk DC-2 uses a high-end 1080p video processor and very high quality CMOS sensor.
This chipset is capable of settings of 480p, 720p and 1080p at up to 30 frames per second, allowing for very high quality video recordings.
Video files are standard MP4 and can be played full-screen on any modern computer.
Digital Image Stabilisation
RoadHawk DC-2 is one of only a few dash-cams on the market fitted with full EIS (electronic image stabilisation) to give you the smoothest video even on the roughest of road surfaces.
The 3 dimensional gyro provides G-Force data which will lock a video file if the camera detects an impact.
Low Light Performance
The RoadHawk DC-2 uses a low-light CMOS sensor.
This sensor not only provides excellent colour reproduction and sharp day time images but also excellent low-light ability.
This sensor exceeds the performance of IR sensors.
UK Designed Software
Our software is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 and OSX for MAC.
The software shows the video, date & time stamp, speed, GPS location, map view, files and G-force information.
You can also play the videos in Quicktime, VLC or Windows Media Player. The standard video files can be edited by just about any video editing software available today.
SDXC Compatible with High Capacity SD Card
The RoadHawk DC-2 dash-cam is compatible with the latest range of high capacity cards including the latest SDXC format allowing 64GB and 128GB SDXC cards to be used.
Automatic Shock Sensor
The RoadHawk DC-2 has a configurable 3 axis accelerometer which measures shocks to the vehicle. When a shock is detected the camera will lock the file as an event, making it easy to find and review any potential impacts.
Events can also be manually activated, either using the ‘E’ button on the rear of the camera or by using the optional remote event trigger.
Precision GPS receiver
The RoadHawk DC-2 uses an internal GPS sensor to record exactly where a vehicle has been travelling.
This is then interpreted by the software to offer mapping and speed data.There is an optional GPS antenna available for vehicles that have some difficulty locking on to the GPS.
Lockable Solution (optional)
Many customers want to restrict access to the camera's SD card. With the locking box in place, it is not possible to remove the SD card or the power cable without a key, making the camera virtually tamper proof.

The locking solution is designed to be as unobtrusive as possible and only takes up a few centimetres more room when fitted.
Communicate with Tracker
The RoadHawk DC-2 dash-camera has an alarm output which can be connected to many different types of tracking device.
Once this has been correctly configured, the camera will send a signal to the tracker if it detects an 'event' (collision). The tracking device will send this as an alert to the tracking software where the fleet manager can be made aware if the camera is triggered in the event of an accident.
Using the tracking software, the fleet manager can make the decision to contact the driver to get more info about the situation.
RoadHawk DC-2 should be able to connect to any tracker which has an alarm input. If you would like to know if the RoadHawk DC-2 is compatible with your tracking device then please don't hesitate to contact us.
