Dashcam Viewer is a software application for viewing movies, GPS data, and shock-sensor data recorded by your dashboard camera.
What Dashcam Viewer can do for you:
- Play your dashcam videos on the main screen while watching your vehicle’s speed, distance, position, bearing, and shock-sensor data update on graphs, data displays, and maps.
- “Geotag” points of interest along your route. Export these to a file. Or import them back in.
- Export your GPS tracks to common file formats such as comma-separated value (CSV), Google Earth KML, and GPS-exchange (GPX) for further data analysis.
- Export portions of videos to new clips
- Combine multiple videos into a single video
- And much more! Check out our Features page and Users Manual for more details.
