About this deal
There’s no sticky pad for the power converter, and I’d have liked to see some zip-ties supplied, but overall the fitting experience is fine, if for me at least, not the very best I’ve worked with. Don’t expect a motorcycle dash-cam to give the image and audio quality of a GoPro, or offer the polish and premium feel of something like a Nextbase car camera (though it’s taken a while for these to get to that point, and they’re still not always perfect in operation). Scrolling through the listings reveals the following categories: WiFi, Camera Settings, Recording Settings, Storage, Advanced Settings, and System. The Bottom Line – new for 2021, the INNOVV K3 Dash (Action) Cam is not just a replacement for the venerable K2 but a new product in its own right – building upon the proven K2 architecture while drawing from the upscale K5 resulting in a familiar form factor with more processing power, detail, and quality upgrades and new components for more functionality.
Press the Remote Control’s Function Button twice or by switching to the Photo Mode from the main Live View Screen if the INNOVV App is in use. The video quality of a dashcam is (partly) determined by the resolution and frames per second it records in. The INNOVV K3 is a most worthy successor to the K2 but so much more, thanks to the new capability for riders wanting ongoing video and audio for safety purposes and to capture their adventures too.
As late winter morphed into early spring but with snow, ice and salt-layered roads still intruding into riding time and before INNOVV officially launched the K3, we contented ourselves by exploring the ins and outs of the new K3 Dual-Channel system on the bench and then during a leisurely first installation. Use the INNOVV App to set your INNOVV K3 to record a video loop and select different recording time for each. First of all, you need to put your camera into loop recording mode – you can set this to be the default start-up mode on a GoPro, so check your device.
The app and Wi-Fi is also readily available and easy to use, making the experience even more convenient. With the camera mounted per Option 1 in a drop-down position and the lens oriented to put the INNOVV marking on top of a clear field of view option. Note – some settings are dynamic (the wheel spins and the system updates immediately) whereas other changes do not take effect until the camera is restarted, usually identified by a pop-up message.Continuous – this is the normal or default recording mode activated when the system is powered up with simultaneous front and back video recorded per the default or user-selected resolution combination and selected time loop. As is the norm for INNOVV products everything needed for the average installation is included with lightweight bracketry and quality hardware. While unlikely to be a problem on modern devices, it’s best to not push the camera too hard, so avoid using 4K.
Option 3 – uses the thin deformable plates (which many users still ponder over) that are easily shaped for mounting against a non-flat surface (curved, tubular, etc. Sony STARVIS image sensors that records front and rear views in 1080p Full HD for crystal clear picture quality day or night, even in low light. Simply use the INNOVV App to set your desired video loop duration and customize recording times settings. With the smart 5V converter included, the Innovv K3 is always supplied with the correct power and voltage level. Lifting the foam layer out along with the well-bundled cables reveals the remaining kit components including a small box packed with a comprehensive multi-bag assortment of hardware pieces and a similar box protectively housing the power supply and its harness; well done.
It still films in razor sharp FullHD quality on the front and back and is equipped with Wifi and a GPS module. Not so easy if you want the cameras as covert as possible and on a bike with not so many hiding places. Well, the Innovv K3 dashcam is here, and it has reached what I consider to be peak functionality as a motorcycle dashcam.
Go to the desired storage folder under the App, select the target subfolder and the file; a pop-up screen with Play, Download, Delete or Cancel options appears. You'll need some knowledge to convert the data displayed on the clips (unless you turn it off) into something you can check on Google - on screen, it may show 'N47•35•60 E3•31•60, but for Google to understand this DMS (degrees, minutes, seconds) data, it needs to be written as 47°35'60"N 3°31'60"E. Rated IP67, The Innovv K7 should be completely protected from dust and be fine if immersed for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1m. It is a little bit fiddly to install but not beyond the means of a competent DIY'er with some basic skills.A wifi dashcam will broadcast a wifi signal with which you can connect within a range of about 5 to 10 meters.
