"Omni DashCam" enables you to use your Android phone or tablet as a video dash cam for your car. Having a video camera in your car is becoming mainstream - this protects you in case of accidents because you have a video log of everything that happened, and you can show this video from the dash cam to the authorities or the insurance companies.
Why buy an expensive video-camera when you already have one on your phone, that records 720p or even 1080p? Use Omnis Dash Cam and an in-car phone holder (or adapt your existing GPS unit holder) and record your daily journeys.
You can leave the recording continuously on because it has cyclic recording - the video will automatically be split into three parts, each five minutes long. When a new file is created, the oldest one is deleted. These numbers are customizable in the options.
To start or stop the recording, simply touch the screen. A red circle means that the recoding is ON.
The recorded files are saved on the SD-card, in the folder "omnis". On most devices, the full path is usually /mnt/sdcard/omnis/.
A video of 1 minute in length, on HIGH quality, takes roughly 20-50MB of SD card space, depending on device and camera capabilities (a better camera produces a larger file). Keep this in mind when selecting the video length and history size.
If you decide to install this dash cam application, you're making a great choice! Thank you!
