Unlike a Tesla the Kia EV6 cannot use the cameras like a dashcam so I got a triple camera set up from Viofo with all the available accessories to solve the problem. In my Niro EV I had bought and installed the A129 Duo from Viofo, but in my EV6 I am using the Viofo T130 three channel 2K unit. Is it any good? What is a 3 channel dashcam? How is the video quality? Watch this video for the unboxing, review, and video samples for all the details.
FULL DISCLOSURE: I received the camera kit for free from Viofo.
I received a request from a viewer to find out what the power draw is in parking mode. Below is the information that I received from Viofo. Based on this info I will stick with Low Bitrate as I have been using since having my A129 Duo and now the T130.
Auto Event Detection…………….5.4
Low Bitrate Recording…………..5.28
Time lapse 1fps……………………4.44
time lapse 100ms…………………4.8
time lapse 1min……………………5.04
