The RoadHawk DC-2 Forward Facing Camera System – Dash Cam – Accident Camera
The RoadHawk DC-2 forward facing camera has replaced the best-selling and very popular RoadHawk DC-1. Packed with high quality features this unit offers 1080p resolution (scalable to 720p or 480p for longer recording times), low light performance, GPS, G-Force sensor, SDXC memory compatible, and image stabilisation technology. All these improvements make the DC-2 a vastly improved version of the excellent DC-1.

This dash camera works on a loop recording and overwrites the oldest files as it records. The DC-2 accident camera will detect an impact, and the dash cam creates an event file. Event files are not overwritten unless they exceed 40% of the capacity of the memory card, at which point it will always overwrite the oldest file first.

RoadHawk DC-2 Digital Stabilisation

Digital Image stabilisation – the RoadHawk DC-2 is the first in car accident camera with full EIS (electronic image stabilisation) to give you the smoothest video even on the roughest road conditions. The 3D gyro gives G-Force data which locks a video file if the camera detects an impact.

RoadHawk DC-2 GPS

Precision GPS engine – RoadHawk DC-2 dash cam uses an internal GPS sensor to record exactly where the vehicle has travelled and is travelling. This is then viewable on the mapping software showing the speed date. There is an optional GPS antenna available for vehicles that have difficulty locking onto the GPS.

SDXC Compatible with High Capacity SD Card – Using the latest SDXC technology, the RoadHawk DC-2 camera is compatible with the latest range of high capacity cards.

RoadHawk DC-2 Mac

UK Designed Software – The RoadHawk DC-2 software is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 and OSX for MAC. This software will show the video, date and time stamp, speed, GPS location, map view files and G-Force information. You can also play the videos in Quicktime, VLC or windows Media Player. The standard video files can be edited by just about any video editing software.

RoadHawk DC-2 G-Force

Automatic Shock Sensor – The RoadHawk DC-2 has a configurable 3 axis accelerometer that will measure shocks to the vehicle. Once a shock has been detected the camera will lock the file as an event, making it easy to find and view any potential impacts. Events can be manually activated, either using the ‘E’ button on the rear of the camera or by using the optional remote event trigger.

RoadHawk DC-2 Lockable Bracket

Lockable Solution (optional) – to meet transport for London (TfL) regulations you have an optional extra lockable cage for the RoadHawk DC-2 accident camera.

The lockable cage has a key so you can only remove the SD card if you use the key provided. The locking cage also secures the power cable so this also cannot be removed from the camera making the unit tamper proof.

Hard wire Kit –RoadHawk DC-2
We offer two options on the hardwire kit, a simple, fused female cigarette socket adapter. This is installed out of site with all wiring hidden and is safely wired behind the dash.

The second option is the official RoadHawk hard wire kit. This is 5m in length and has an in line fuse. It has a filter box which reduces interference to and from the camera and this box will cut power to the camera should the vehicle’s voltage drop, which reduces the chances of flattening your battery. This kit connects directly to a 12v supply or to a circuit on the ignition.

Video Guide for RoadHawk HD and RoadHawk HD Software
(Also applies to RoadHawk DC-2 Camera)

RoadHawk DC-2 Software is both PC and MAC compatible. This app is designed to be as easy to use as possible.
It will auto update your camera for you and more features will continue to be added by RoadHawk at regular intervals.

RoadHawk DC-2 Camera Player

When you run the RoadHawk software it will look for the SD card from the RoadHawk HD camera. If the SD card is blank, the software will NOT see the SD Card.
You MUST use the SD card in the camera BEFORE using this software.

Once you insert the SD card from the camera in to your computer it will list all the video files on that card on the right hand side of the screen.
A USB card reader is supplied with the RoadHawk DC-2 camera.

Just above the list of files you will see three buttons. EVENT, NORMAL and ALL.

RoadHawk DC-2 Camera File Filter
File Filter

EVENT: will list only the files that have been created by the camera because of an EVENT.
This could be a collision, a pothole or a manual event created by pressing the E button on the camera.
NORMAL: Will display only NORMAL video files created by the camera, this should be your normal everyday driving.
Depending on the size of the SD card you are using and also depending on the quality settings, you should expect to see your most recent journeys here.
ALL: This will display all files on the card in the order they were created.
Please note that the earliest files will normally be EVENT files as these stay on the card longer than NORMAL video files.

At this point, you might be seeing a video recorded several days or weeks ago at the top of the list. Towards the bottom of the list you will start to see your normal everyday driving videos. It is normal to have gaps in these files because of the way the camera overwrites the earliest files recorded.

RoadHawk DC-2 Camera Map

Below the list of video files you will see the MAP. This will show the location of the vehicle at the time the video was recorded. If the camera was not receiving a GPS signal at the time of recording or if your computer does not have an internet connection then you might not see the MAP.
Within the MAP screen you can use the buttons in the top left to navigate around the MAP and to zoom in or zoom out.

RoadHawk DC-2 Camera G-Force Sensor
G-Force Sensor

Below the main windows is a G-Force Meter display. The small spot in the centre of this meter represents the G-Force experienced by the camera at the time the video was recorded.
As the vehicle accelerates you would expect to see the spot move towards the bottom of the meter. Braking will show up as the spot moving upwards on the meter. Cornering will send the spot left or right. The more heavy the manoeuvre, the further the spot will travel on the graph.

RoadHawk DC-2 Camera Vehicle Speed
Vehicle Speed

Just below the main video window is the speed of the vehicle shown be default in MPH. Clicking here will change the display to KPH and vice versa.
