170-degree ultra wide viewing angle
Record everything on the road, including up to 4 lanes of traffic. The 6 layers of fixed-focus lens capture all the details you need in 1080p high definition. Fantastic night vision means clearer footage in all kinds of conditions.
Automatic loop recording
As soon as your engine starts, the Crosstour CR700 starts loop recording. This automatically deletes footage of no use and keeps your memory card clear for the next recording.
If an accident occurs, the gravity sensor will automatically protect the footage from being deleted during loop recording.
3-metre motion detection
The CR700 will kick into life on its own, so you can concentrate on the road. The camera will start recording automatically if movement is detected within 3 metres, protecting you against theft and damage. If the object or person stops moving within 10 seconds, the recording ends to save space and energy.
