Transcend DrivePro 520 dash cam review: Front and interior cameras in one neat package


Transcend's DrivePro 520 dash cam lets you keep track of passengers in your car as well as what's in front of you, with both a front-facing static camera and an integrated swiveling interior camera.

Integrated interior camera can't track behind the vehicle ; Getting both sticky and suction mounts costs extra

Transcend pro drive 520 dashcam


Excellent piece of kit for the price paid. A well made item which is easy to set up and use in everyday motoring situations. Having been involved in a non fault collision a few years back, I wouldn't be without one again. Rates 9.5 out 10 from me.
