Do you DIY?

The Open Dashcam is a physical device that records and stores videos. While the device can be used like all other dashcams, the video it produces is optimized to build street level map coverage.

All components and blueprints are open source, enabling anybody to assemble their very own version of the Open Dashcam.

  • Camera: 4k camera at 15 fps
  • GPS: Built-in
  • WiFi: Built-in 802.11n 2.4GHz / 802.11ac 5GHz Dual band
