Vantrue X1 Full HD 1080P Dash Cam Review

I have complained several times about Southern California’s freeways. Although the word freeway sounds very fast when actually they should be called parking lots. 8 lanes of parking lots. I know what you are thinking, then why don’t you move? Several reasons. First my Grandbabies are all right here within miles of my house. Second, I’m lazy. Third and truly the most honest response would be I have WAY TOO MUCH STUFF to even think about moving!! It makes my head hurt just thinking about it.

Now, if everyone drove as safe and cautiously as I do (MAN! I am one funny, funny girl!!) I wouldn’t need a dash cam. No one would! However, since the freeways here are dead stop to 60+ MPH a dash cam is an important tool for my car. Even if you don’t have the freeways that California has a dash cam is a must have! Especially if you have kids in the car! Because with kids you have distractions! From the “Non! Look at me!” to the “Non, I dropped my juice box” (why are they never sealed with they drop on the floor or the seat?! WHY!?) Then there is always the guy in front of you came to dead stop for absolutely no reason. Distractions are all around you. For all of those reasons and many more I’ve had a dash-cam for the last couple of years.

I’ve found a dash cam that tops all the others I’ve tried. This is the Vantrue X1 Car Dash Cam a full HD 1080P dash cam with a 170° wide angle 2.7″ LCD screen. All of that and a G-sensor, parking mode, HDR & super night vision as well. This dash cam is designed so well and in no way obstructs my view. Vantrue X1 is small, compact and clips to the most unique suction cup mount I’ve found for a dash cam.

Vantrue X1 Full HD 1080P Dash Cam Review

There is a mini-USB jack directly on the suction cup mount along with an additional mini-USB jack on the bottom of the camera along with an mini-HDMI output jack.

Dash Cam

Once you have the suction cup in the place you want, then rotate the fitting until it clicks. Absolutely solid suction. Even in the unusually hot weather (as in 102°!! In September?!) this suction cup did not budge. This camera is nestled behind my rear view mirror and fits perfectly. I drive a 2012 Honda CRV.

When you start the car the Vantrue starts up instantly. Set up is amazingly easy! I love that I can set the screen to constant on or off.   All of my recordings are stored in the micro-sd card that is not supplied. The Vantrue will take up to a 32gb card. You can set the date and time of the recordings and if you have GPS you can also have the coordinates stamped in the video.

The dash cam gives me great resolution, from recording 30 Frames Per Second at 1080 resolution.  DO NOT FORGET TO REMOVE the protective piece from the dash cam lens, or your video quality will not be as clear and crisp. (Yes, I know this by experience).

I love that the Vantrue Dash Cam records until the SD card is filled and then automatically replaces the oldest files and continues to record. This is truly a set it and forget it camera. Recordings are stored in MOV format which means I can plug-in my micro-SD card in my computer and watch without any other apps or downloads.


This is a clip of various times of day.
The G-sensor starts recording if the camera senses impact. So, it’s perfect if it’s a front end impact; not so much if it’s a rear impact (That’s the same for any dash cam) What’s really great is that those files are protected until I erase them.

The Vantrue X1 has a very long cord so you could actually follow the windshield around to hide the cord, personally I wrapped it around the rear view mirror, you can’t even see all the cord hidden there. I am impressed with the additional USB port at the end of that very long cord, where the cord plugs into the cigarette lighter; simply push aside the top for that additional port. I can use it for the GPS or my phone! It’s just a nice feature!

I am thoroughly impressed with the Vantrue X1. From the easy to understand manual to the suction cup mount. The video quality is awesome. The LCD display is clear and easy to see. The camera is sleek looking in all black. Where the X1 sits on the windshield you really don’t notice the camera. The cam is subtle and doesn’t scream ‘break-in get a free dash cam!’

I love the fact that this camera remembers all of my settings. Turn off the car, the dash cam continues to record for another few seconds before shutting off. Start the car and the dash cam starts right up and begins recording. I’m very pleased!!

Sunwell Saline Water Christmas Lights Review

dc96224d-3008-406e-89f0-807d5e83dbb6_zpsjirvarseThis is the COOLEST set of lights I’ve ever owned!! I am dumbfounded at how they can work without any batteries and without any plugs!!!  We couldn’t WAIT for these lights to arrive.

From start to finish this is the COOLEST set of lights!! First, they arrive wrapped like a Christmas gift, white box and bright red ribbon. What a very nice touch!!

The Sunwell Saline Water LED Lights work without any batteries, no solar panel, no electrical plug. Simple salt water. SO cool!!!!

This light is also water proof so it can be set outside in the rain or the snow! And all it will cost you is salt!!

So, first open up the lid which locks on 2 sides. The latch is very secure and the housing is water tight. Fill with water add a pouch of salt. There are several empty pouches included so you can measure out your salt to dump in. Once you have put your salt inside the housing snap the lid shut and mix the water and salt. We turned the housing over maybe a dozen times. It really doesn’t take much mixing. The salt dissolves very quickly.


Then the magic happens. The lights come on. The lights come on BRIGHT!!! AND stay ON!! One container of water and a little salt and these lights will stay on 24/7 for a MONTH!! A FULL MONTH!! No having to change the water, no having to add salt. Completely and totally maintenance free, colorful and bright lights. Lights that don’t get hot either!!!

Brilliant HOMESCHOOLING idea!

This would be an amazing Homeschooler project! Science project! Christmas gift! Kids are going to be as amazed as I am! Since it is wrapped so beautifully its immediately ready for under the tree.

To prolong the life of house and the magnesium anode rod that’s in the center of the housing its best to change out the salt water once a week. The instructions even give instructions on changing the magnesium rod; which will completely dissolve after time.

The on off light is a small black button on the housing. You can turn the light steady on or flashing mode. You will also want to open the small vent on the very top of the housing.

Are ya kidding? This is the coolest set of Christmas lights!! Lights that require no electricity, no solar panel, no batteries!! WOW!! I am excited that I can actually put lights in my front window and not worry about cords! This is truly a COOLEST set of lights!
