Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles customers can now have dashcam technology from Kenwood installed at their nearest Van Centre.

Volkswagen customers can now have Kenwood dashcams installed at their nearest Van Centre.

The DRV-410 dashcam is designed to record a driver’s eye view of the road ahead and provide an effective deterrent against fraudulent claims. The windscreen-mounted dash camera is able to record in dark and bright conditions and uses High Dynamic Range technology to ensure it doesn’t under or over expose the images along with a wide angle lens to ensure all angles are covered in the unfortunate event of a collision.

In addition to visual recording, it also offers drivers a clear and audible initial warning to help avert front end collisions, lane departure and departure delay.

To maintain a safe distance between vehicles, the advanced video camera gives a warning sound if approaching too closely, at speeds of 19mph or faster. A warning sound also notifies drivers when their vehicle is changing lanes at speeds of 37mph or above, if the car in front is late to move off or if the vehicle starts to move backwards, acting as an effective safety sensor.

The DRV-410 also features a CMOS Image Sensor, HDR technology and safety features. A built-in highly sensitive GPS system automatically records driving information such as speed, altitude and longitude.

Trevor Hodgson-Phillips, head of service and parts at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, commented: “All commercial vehicle drivers need the best possible equipment available and the new DRV-410 is an exceptional piece of kit. With its expert safety features and HDR technology, it provides state-of-the-art assistance to drivers in warning them of potential accidents, lane departures and capturing footage of the entire road ahead.”

Priced from £175, the DRV-410 unit is available to order across the Van Centre network. For more information, please visit
