The Expert’s Rating of VS1 dash cam is nearly 5 stars, and it is recommended that, “if you want a small dash cam that takes good captures, then the Viofo VS1 competes well with the Garmin Mini 2, upping the resolution ante. It even has the GPS that the Garmin Mini 2 lacks.”



How are the VS1 Mini 2K’s captures?

The PCWorld editor was impressed by the night video and daylight capture. They praised that the VS1’s captures are top-notch in the running for best 1440P resolution.

“The VS1’s captures are top-notch — in the running for best 1440p I’ve seen. The processing really makes a difference.”

“This daylight capture shows very good detail, and the color is accurate for a gray day in San Francisco.”



“I was especially impressed with the night video. Headlight flare was handled wonderfully, and California’s bright white license plates were still quite readable when my own headlights lit them up.”



VS1 is equipped with Sony STARVIS 2 IMX675 image sensor, delivering exceptional 2K 1440P image clarity day and night. The Sony STARVIS 2 tech offers a wider dynamic range, approximately 2.5 times that of the STARVIS pixel of the same size, bringing less noise and motion blur during recording. The 2K HDR tech balances extremely bright and dark areas to avoid over exposures and accurately catching license plates at night.


What are the VS1 Mini 2K’s features?

The review also praised other features of VS1 dashcam, like sleek design, easy installation, Wi-Fi function, voice control, and car charger adapter.

“The VS1 is very small. It’s styled nicely in black with tastefully minimal accents.”  VS1 has been honored with both the 2024 iF Design Award and the Red Dot Award, undoubtedly acknowledging its exceptional design and innovative features.



“The Mini 2K uses a semi-permanent adhesive mount that the unit slides on and off of.”  (easy installation & removal)


“The VS1 connects to your phone via Wi-Fi and the Viofo app found the camera quickly. I also found the app easy to navigate and use.” Also, the VS1’s plentiful voice commands (“Turn on/off audio,” “Turn on Wi-Fi,” etc.) help hands-free interaction with the dashcam.


“Viofo provides a standalone cigarette-lighter adapter with two Type-A ports — one for charging, and another free.”  The dual USB car charger enables powering the dash camera and keeping your phone charged at the same time.
