X3000 Dash Cam

The X3000 Double Lens DVR is among the most popular double lens cameras available now. This camera includes both lenses on the primary unit that allows recording what’s going on in front of your vehicle and inside the automobile. I believe these dashboard cams, “cab cams” since recording the interior of the car is logical for taxi drivers. The majority of other users would be better off with a dual camera with a separate back lens that may be mounted onto the rear window. Not only x3000 is on the market, you can also give try to other best nextbase dash cams too.

The X3000 is a standard definition camera which can record 1280 x 480p at 30fps for both the front and back camera. The video quality of the front camera typical for the day (at best) and below average at nighttime. Reading license plates is hard. Nevertheless that has a few of the better 480p quality when compared to other cameras. The back camera quality is fine during the day (you don’t really need over 480p for recording the interior) but very poor at nighttime. Most of the complaints regarding this camera revolve round video quality. The X3000 Has a G-sensor and GPS Also. The GPS needs an external antenna to be mounted.

X3000 Models

The camera, like many Chinese celebrities, has a number of different titles:

  • X3000 (Most popular)
  • CVWL-C143 (A favorite version title)
  • R300 (Less popular model title)
  • xDevice Black Box-20 (Russian model)
  • F50 (Non GPS version which asserts 720p shooting for front and has 8 leds around the front lens — notice the leds don’t improve night quality)
  • Separate Rear Lens (GPS variant which claims 720p shooting for front and has a separate rear lens)

Known issues

Hidden Files

Unlike many dash cams that have the video and data files readily accessible on the SD card, this camera required the usage of a proprietary participant (which gets written into the SD card) to view the videos and information. Many users complain of locked files and the inability to get them.

Sensor Fail

When you connect the charger when the dash cam is off, you may sometimes receive a SENSOR FAIL error. There is no known solution to this issue. This issue has been reported many times.

Speed Stamp on Video

There is absolutely no method to embed the speed stamp on the video. The speed can only be viewed using the provided software.

Many customers complain of an inaccurate GPS on this unit. Normally the GPS is off by a few meters and it will show the car on the sidewalk.

View mode

For some X3000 models, while watching a clip during view style, if you press the MENU button the camera will turn off.
