What Made Howen V42 a Hot-selling Dashcam


Howen V42 dual-lens dashcam has always been the bestselling dashcam since its release one year ago, and its unparalleled features make it stand out from other competitors’ products. You might wonder what makes it such an unbeatable choice for the commercial vehicle, so here is the answer for you.

Since day one we developed the V42, we made up our mind to infuse the product with functions to resolve issues that we encountered in our decades’ experiences of fleet management solutions. After hundreds rounds of testing, the V42 eventually was released and deployed in projects worldwide. Its debut stole lightlime from similar products in the market and received countless praise from our clients. Here is why our V42 dash camera wins the competition in the market.

Multiple options to meet different needs

The image resolution on V42 is optional. You can choose either 1M pixels or 2M pixels according to the realistic needs and budget amount. A higher image resolution is not always the better, as we found that some clients actually didn’t need that extra 1M resolution. Therefore, we provide two options, one saves a large amount of money for those who are on the budget, and another provides a decent clearer view for those who have a pursuit for recording quality.

Besides image resolution, our client can also select whether they would like one or two lenses for their dashcam. Howen provides V24 dashcams that only equipped with one front(V42F-2M) or rear lens(V42R-2M). These derivative modules present a more cost-effective selection to satisfy projects with low budgets while providing the same decent image quality.

Profoundly debugged with our MDVR and VSS

One single soldier can not win the war, and it is similar to a product. Our V42 dashcam was adjusted by the Howen product and R&D team to best match with our MDVR and VSS system. Previously in the U.K., our solution integrated with V42 dashcam and MDVR successfully streamlined the surveillance management of a fleet company. Our British client selected Howen solution rather than other vendors because our dedicated customized solution passed the testing from their existing products and platform.

Howen MDVR Safeguarded Trucks in Guatemala

Howen’s innovation of customized vehicle solutions with Mobile DVR and VSS has never stopped. Lately from Guatemala, we received heart-stirring news from our client that our tailor-made project will be landed in one month. Several months ago, our Guatemalan client reached out to Howen for an applicable solution. They are one of the biggest truck companies which have been operating oil and soil transportation over many decades in Guatemala. 

What made our clients’ headaches?

In daily operation, our client found a series of issues which might cause the millions dollar of loss, such as fatigued driving, oil theft, and so on. It’s also reported that truck accidents happen frequently nationwide in Guatemala. Due to the facts, our client increasingly longs for a vehicle surveillance solution to effectively supervise the internal and surrounding environment of their trucks. Therefore, they proposed a specific requirement of viewing their trucks video in realtime. In addition to the traditional vehicle video recording, the Guatemalan client was very interested in leveraging the power of the latest VSS solution to further cut down the operation cost. 


Customized solution for the “headaches”

After comprehending the needs profoundly, our solution professionals came up with a solution. We selected our Mobile DVR  (model: Hero-ME32-04) as the “trucks’ brain” to process data, as its functions listed below:

  • This economical MDVR supports 4 channels 720p cameras that meet most of the needs of our clients’ trucks.
  • The embedded 1TB HDD is designed with a specialized solid structure to mitigate vibration and protect data.
  • Built-in 4G, Wifi, and GPS modules ensure data transfer without any hinders.
  •  The intelligent G-sensor detects moments of the truck and alarms any unnormal positional changes.
  • Affluent connection ports enable transferring more data from vehicle peripherals to MDVR and VSS.

Other than the MDVR, we carefully chose a dome camera(Hero-C62S0V30-1MR) installed inside the cabin and 3 rear cameras (Hero-C60S0V26-1MR)  respectively installed beside and behind the truck. These wide-angle and water-resistant cameras provide a complete high-resolution view of the surrounding. More importantly, they are tuned by our engineers to match with our MDVR. Truck drivers can view the circumstances round through the monitor and make smart decisions.

Vehicle Service System(VSS) for more possibilities

On the platform side, we provided our self-developed Vehicle Service System (VSS). The multi-functional platform received data from Howen MDVR and renders our clients a management system that they can monitor vehicles in real-time anywhere by installing our dedicated mobile APP and software. Furthermore, the VSS platform is able to locate trucks and record the routes. With this function, our clients can optimize the transporting route and cut down insufficient costs.
