The Viofo T130 is aimed at Uber drivers, ride-shares, and taxis, but it’s a good option for any driver to capture as many angles as possible. The compact design, great parking mode, and decent video quality make the T130 a great option for anyone looking for more than a single-lens dashcam. I’ve been impressed by Viofo’s dash cams over the years, as they offer the features you want at a sensible price. The T130 is more expensive than some of the firm’s dual-channel models but that’s because it has three channels. That means it records the front, rear, and the car’s interior.
What’s in the Viofo T130?
The Viofo T130 is a video camera designed for Uber, Lyft, and other driver services. It’s super easy to set up and takes only four hours to fully capture driver video. It records at 30 frames per second and has a 30-second delay before the video is recorded, which is nice for any timing fouls or other errors that could occur while the driver is driving. It comes with an 18-month warranty, which is impressive considering most vendors charge a minimum of three months.
The Viofo T130 measures 11.5 x 5.5 x 1.5 inches and has a weight of only 50 grams. That means it’s easy to pick up and place in the car’s pocket or bag. The camera’s video quality is decent, especially when set up properly. It records at 30 frames per second and has a low profile when placed in the front seat. It’s clear, easy to see and not too grainy, making it great for portraits and other low-res pictures.
Installation is easy
After purchasing the Viofo T130, you can take it to the shop and have it INSTALLED in a couple of hours. You simply remove the yellow plate in the back of the vehicle and place the camera on the inside. You can then remove the camera and arrange for it to be Tethered to the vehicle’s battery. That’s it. You can take the camera to the garage for any other MOT, setup-related issues or other reasons.
You can record up to 1080p at 30 frames per second
The Viofo T130 supports high-res video recording, which means you can shoot 4K video, which is usually more than is supported by devices. You’ll need a device that supports the high-res video format to shoot the full-res video. You can record in 30-second clips at a time and save them as high-res photos.
A 7-day warranty
In addition to the great features of the Viofo T130, Uber, Lyft and other driver services also have a warranty that lasts seven days. That’s half the duration of a shop warrantee. You can check out what it costs to get a shop warranty in your area and see if that’s the best option for you.
Tethering is not supported
The Viofo T130 supports only a single tethering system, which might be a bummer since many people love to use their car as a mobile home or other temporary structure. That means the camera cannot be tethered to the vehicle itself, rather it’s connected to a single source of power. This means you’ll need to either use a special extension cable or buy a separate power bank to keep the T130 connected. To keep the T130 connected, you’ll also need a special mounting system. This means you’ll have to buy a set of special mounting screws that go with the car and need to be kept in a bag or pocket. You’ll also need to hire a professional lubeator to mount the power bank and extension cable.
