IROAD T10 design, Cutting down thickness and slim design through a streamlined double shape, makes us surprise how come it is a camera which has been embedded 3.5 inch LCD screen on it.
For the best of the best
JEAWONCNC unquestionably seems to know how to attract consumer’s attention. There are hundreds of thousands of cameras made by so many companies but, most of them seem they cannot make any differentiation among competitors at this point of time when majority of products have the similar price and performance. So, do you think consumers can be fascinated by those products? IROAD T10 has marvelous specifications in terms of hardware to attract consumers and its merits induces consumers to have astonished eyes “How come there has been this in car camera!”
In car camera which is one of the most developing IT gadgets in automobile sector in three years.

Feedback from customer’s needs was the key point to continually develop its technologies in pursuit of growth of the competiveness as each company has been doing so far IROAD has known the significance of image sensor and adopted Sony CMOS image sensor to procure clearer and brighter image in line with an effort. The more surprising thing is that it is embedded in both front and rear camera each, so that IROAD T10 can be placed in a dominant position in its market.
Front FHD, 30 Frames
2CH in car camera which can record both front and rear is far more expensive than 1CH in car camera. In the initial stage of the market, the importance of rear cameras wasn’t that significant, which was remained as only auxiliary role. IROAD T10 can record both front and rear clearly FHD resolution as growing consumer’s demand for stationary recording and significance.
As mentioned earlier, as adopting Sony COMS sensor on the both front and rear, IROAD T10 has an ascendancy of advantage on its market when it comes to hardware, and it is fulfilling the consumer’s demand and the growing importance of rear camera. To record both front and rear FHD 30 frames should be in a remarkable support of hardware performance behind. Overwhelming performance by Cortec-A7 V3 quad core CPU embedded is utterly exceptional so as to carry out the recordings safely and clearly.
24/7 in satisfaction
One of the important things as much as resolution for in car camera is how to record in accordance with various situations appropriately. Why is a in car camera useful if it can’t record properly in the event of an accident? What is the deference between action cams which is newly introduced in the public nowadays and in car cameras? The main purpose of in car camera is to obtain any evidence of footage in clear quality in any car accident may occur at any time, isn’t it? IROAD in car camera series has been devoted to the original function, and IROAD T10 also inherited the knowhow of the technique sufficiently.
Once power on, constant recording, the basic function of performance, has broad images both front and rear through 155 degrees wide angle. Some product supporting both front and rear FHD 30 frames recording in other brands compromise frames otherwise, IROAD T10 never does an irrational compromise for the customer’s priceless experience.The angle for previous models of IROAD in car camera was around 133 degrees but, IROAD T10 has a wide angle eye sight in the use of 155 degrees wide angle lens. Lens also is three times bigger than previous one and looks better quality of design, and the high durability of lens is made of glass which can resist a transform on low and high temperatures like unfavorable and adverse meteorological conditions
Is it an in car camera that is unable to use the event recording function? Then it is not eligible to be called an in car camera. The meaning of event recording is recording when detecting an impact or accident and saving it into a specific folder so as to record of the maximum time without worries about overwriting SD card as constant recording. It is the most major function in car cameras have since, it enables to judge an assailant and a victim.
Most of LCD screen embedded in car cameras fundamentally adopt TN panel which has a feature that right and left sight angle is fine but, it is at a disadvantage on up and down sight angle. So, to see LCD screen from down is in difficulties for users who is on a seat. In other words, drivers usually look up to see an in car camera screen on a seat which is mounted on the upper front window, and the mixture of the trait and the position of user will bring difficulties to see it. Over this issue, IROAD T10 adopted IPS LCD panel which is much more expensive than TN panel and has no issue ,as mentioned the up and down sight angle, and supports clear screen for users who use from their seat.
Cars are in danger in stationary such as terror or any damage since cars are usually parked longer time than driving. IROAD T10 can detect motions or any movements in stationary, and it will be recorded to an event recording when being impacted. The innovative design for low-voltage consumption consumes only 2.9W when stationary.
In the initial days, we must have brought a SD card to PC for checking out recording files but, various functions can be done directly on the LCD screen of IROAD T10 without inconvenience. The LCD enables full touch so that is able to use intuitive UI without troublesome controlling buttons. Especially, menu page and diverse UI of IROAD T10 are big enough for easy controlling.
Real time checking recording
To check whether an in car camera sets well and whether or not working well, we had to connect AV cable to navigation for old model in car cameras. But, LCD screen of T10 guarantees users to change angles and check whether working well as seeing the screen. Users will amuse a convenient LCD screen and realize how easy it is
Checking recording files
How to do to check recording files? necessary to take out a sd card to check recording files in an in car camera not having LCD but, IROAD T10 can be done immediately checking it via LCD screen. The size of the LCD is pretty big enough to see and gives an impression that it can play even FHD recording files smoothly.
The various configuration is easy and handy, which means users do not need to open up the pc viewer and directly change the settings as seeing the LCD screen. If users opt their best settings such as changing front and rear recording resolution, impact sensor sensitivity and so on, the usefulness of IROAD T10 will be maximum
Convenience of wireless
There was a study that how to utilize smart phones for consumer’s convenient usage, and in the end, it brought a result of using wireless-len which enables to check recording files or live recordings. In the initial phase, it was used to utilize to in car cameras which did not have a LCD screen however, IROAD T10 have both LCD screen and Wi-Fi function, which users have more choices as another strong point. Connecting Wi-Fi is easier than expected. For the first place, insert the wifi dongle to a device and then downloading app on google playstore. That is all to prepare. Once the setting is done for the first time, opening the app is only needed to automatically tether a smart phone to use.
See via smart phone
One of the strong points IROAD T10 has is Wi-Fi connection function which enables to check out recording files and how an in car camera is recording via a smart phone in the near distance from car. Users can check recording files, save and upload recording files on Youtube easily as well as checking recording files intuitively. As front and back cameras are FHD, performance of a smart phone should be good enough to support playback of FHD recording files for the reference.
Saved settings can be changed without touching LCD screen via IROAD APP. From time to time, Using a smart phone is better way rather than touching LCD screen depending on situations, which makes us feel convenient.
Firmware is perennially released on the website for the purpose of strengthening stability and functions as well as modification of bugs. Firmware auto upgrade via the IROAD APP is very useful as users usually do not care about updating apps. How do we concern about the update of in car camera? since, updating firmware of router at home is even out of the concern. IROAD APP will utterly settle the matter of annoyingness because, firmware downloading and upgrading at the same time will be done once connecting Wi-Fi automatically.
Format free, secret of stability
As most of in car cameras, there is a high possibility of problems in the SD card caused by continues recording. Overwriting recording files over and over burdens the controller of SD card and it will lead a situation that recording files cannot be saved in the end. Formatting SD cards regularly is recommended for majority of the in car cameras, but on the contrary IROAD T10 adopted JDR file system not the existing FAT32 file system in order to boost security and to easily maintain it well. JDR file system in pursuit of continues sequent saving is capable of keeping a stable environment for recording as easing the burden onto SD card controller since, it will be saved sequently. Adopting JDR file system leads what it cannot be played on normal PC players, but, IROAD T10 provides variety of viewing method for the convenience such as PC viewer and file extraction function, LCD and Wi-Fi
JDR file system
It could be marvelous or unfamiliar, IROAD T10 require around 15~30 sec to boot up when using a new SD card. Afterward, the SD card is full of JDR files if checking on PC file management. Each JDR file could have only one footage of recording file or could have more than five event files. Although, users delete the recording files, IROAD T10 will retrieve the recording files automatically. Counterfeiting and falsifying data is highly difficult, which guarantees a substantial credibility as an in car camera. Using the previous FAT32 method As using previous FAT32 method, what new files fills on a space removed and another new file also is saved on an another space removed in this repeat way accelerates fragmentation, which brings a burden to SD card in the end. But, in the line of JDR files system, logically recording files will be deleted and created as the SD card is full of JDR files, which brings a lesser burden to SD cards. Especially, it was recorded in RAM and saved in SD card in the previous system but, without passing through RAM, record directly onto SD card, which brings an advantage that it is saved more safely in an event of the accident that brings power cut suddenly. The mention above, these have quite a lot of strong points for instance, recording in a better condition due to lesser burden to CPU and SD card so that it can show a better performance in the event of an accident and is advantageous to heating issue. JDR file system does an initial work and automatically organizes when detecting a new SD card and formatted SD card, and also formatting can be done on LCD if users want. Choosing overwriting on/off and portion of between event and normal on the configuration is as part of IROAD technique for customer’s need.
The outstanding viewer for monitoring
PC viewer is needed to convert recording files on IROAD T10 to AVI video files in order to give in accidents files to an insurance company. It has lots of functions which enforces monitoring through those such as playing front and rear recordings, zoom in/out recording files, editing night recording images and drawing lanes and so on. Addition to that, extracting recording files to AVI files is also included. IROAD T10 is also capable of saving recording files into a smart phone but, PC viewer is recommendable for customers who demand more powerful monitoring function. Downloading PC viewer can be on the IROAD homepage but, the easiest way is to run a install file saved in SD card. After booting a device, the install file is created automatically in SD card for immediate use.
Ultimate accomplishment for convenience
The assembled effort of IROAD T10 is quite significant in terms of the discrimination from other brand of the car cameras. It supports up to 64GB SD card and can boost the credibility and accuracy of the in car cameras through external GPS antenna. In addition to that, security LED is used for warning when stationary, and low voltage auto cut-off function to prevent a drain of battery in winter is one of the factors in pursuit of the discrimination and convenience in many areas.
Users may mind using a product which supports up to 32GB, the maximum capacity and Full HD models. If a manufacturer does not acknowledge the support of 64GB SD card, it could be a main factor that the manufacturer would avoid any responsibility of what recording files cannot be saved into 64gb SD card, and also users have to figure out whether it supports or not by them self causing inconvenience. Lets not concern about it with IROAD T10. IROAD T10 adapted supports format free JDR system supports 64GB SD card and setting the portion of event and normal file folder in SD card is easy to customize user’s needs. Class10 64GB MLC type SD card is recommendable by the manufacturer, and if uncomfortable using another brand, Let’s use IROAD brand SD card. Recording time is around 14H 10 in the condition of basic setting without overwriting. Recording front and rear in 30 frames both as it is a big amount of data, using high capacity SD card is a good strong point. But, please refer that the recording time varies depending on circumstances of surroundings.
External GPS support
For having better credibility of in car camera data, users can use external GPS. The main purpose of it is that recording rear time and date, and it records moving route and speed into in car camera at the same time so as to figure out a speed and location in the event of an accident. Those recording data can be checked out in PC viewer and it relates to another portal site to show the locations on the map.
Front and rear warning, security LED
There is a growth of users demand whether having security LED or not in car camera. If security LED exists on in car camera, it shows an identity of its design and also looks nicer. Added to that, it reminds people that it is under surveillance to prevent any harmful intend. IROAD T10 has the security LED on both front and rear camera to enhance effectiveness. Three white LED are embedded in IROAD T10 on the below of the lens and the blue LED on the side of rear camera. The location of LED on IROAD T10 is a special design on the purpose of not interrupting lens, which light butts in the camera and interfere recording.
Smart low voltage cut off
In car cameras have to consume electricity from a battery of car after engine-off for outside surveillance. The possibility of drained battery gets higher in winter than in summer, usually the efficiency of battery is not good in winter. In this case, if sets voltage low as summer, it may cause drain of battery. Basically, the consumption of battery of IROAD T10 is lower than other products and it has the LBP function that fixes the cut off voltage at 12.3V in Nov to in Mar for the purpose of a efficient and convenient voltage management.
Fussy consumers choice
IROAD in car cameras which has continues development, powerful performance and reasonable price have been loved so much by consumers. From these popularity, it got awarded the grand prize of 2015 Korea Consumer Awards on the first of Jun on the subject of Car Camera by Korea Consumer Association. The grand prize of 2015 Korea Consumer Awards is to give to brands which contribute to the Korea’s economy development as communication and international exchange among economy tripartite three major agents , government, companies and consumers etc. As a result, the awarded brand is JAEWON CNC, which means fussy customers have chosen IROAD in car cameras. JEAWON CNC has developed more than 20 models of in car cameras so far, on the average 4~5 models in car cameras every year, and has piled up lots of techniques in the pursuit of that to make product which customers want. JAEWON CNC has extended to oversea as well as domestic, and it has a branch in Singapore and is planning to have a new branch in Hong-Kong in 2016 on the basis of the technologies. IROAD in car camera have been exporting to Hong-Kong, Singapore, Russia, northern Europe and so on around 30 countries, and it is known as a popular brand in those countries. As a prove of the mention, JAEWON CNC got nominated as an export prominent enterprise in last Dec by Seoul small and medium business administration. ‘The export prominent enterprise’ is a program that Seoul city council supports prospective companies which got verified as having a stable finance, prospective export and so on. What it means above is that JAEWON CNC has got a good assessment of related technologies as possessing the new technology patents and potential growth of export. IROAD is expected to be loved by consumers in the world as whenever it releases as IROAD T10, it brings perennial upgrading performance design and reasonable prices than other brand in car cameras.
The best, more practical
IROAD in car camera is always well known as a hit product manufacturer. The consumers loved IROD V9 due to the reason why it has FHD on both front and rear cameras and Wi-Fi function with the reasonable price. And, this time for IROAD T10, it comes with the LCD screen to step up the competitiveness. Particularly, the LCD of IROAD T10 is an IPS panel, supports wide angle eye sight, which is not cheap as its competitors have for showing off the superiority. I also feel that JAEWON CNC, IROAD manufacturer, seems to know how to make products attractive and boost competitiveness compared to other brands. Sony CMOS sensor on both front and rear and FHD support, all 30 frames, these functions are already on the basis but, it also comes with Wi-Fi connection function, which is a perfect product for users. Especially, to escalate the stability of the camera, it adopts JDR file system to record in a stable condition in the event of an accident and in a situation of sudden power cut-off. Moreover, security LED and external GPS bring convenience to users.
There have been lots of in car cameras in the world so far and the reason why IROAD became popular and a steady seller is that it listens and reacts in response to user’s needs as possible as it can do. IROAD T10 is also easily expected that it will be listed in the hot in car camera since it qualifies price, performance and other function, which are superior to other brand’s products. What is more? I will close the review as lastly stressing one more time that IROAD T10 that satisfies basic function and high performance as well as reasonable price is the top class in car camera and will be the hot item in the in car camera market in 2016.
