PALO ALTO, Calif., June 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — St. Edward Enterprises is announcing their updated iPhone application, DashCam. DashCam combines the rear-facing camera of the iPhone, Google Maps, and GPS to allow the user to record his/her driving, track the route along which s/he is traveling on Google Maps, and display the speed, average speed, and distance. The user has the ability to share the video via YouTube, Facebook, Email, AirPlay enabled devices, or just save the video on the device, or in the Photo Album. The recording can be used in various ways, some of which include fighting traffic tickets, providing evidence in case of an accident, learning purposes, and personal entertainment. Updates include AirPlay feature, screen recording, ability to use the application while listening to iPod, and improved Facebook and YouTube sharing. DashCam is now being offered to the public at a fraction of the cost of expensive devices that are available on the market now.

Route tracking and video recording

DashCam is based on a combination of Google Maps and iPhone AGPS. Route tracking tracks each point traveled on the map and displays it in the red highlighted line overlaid on top of the Google Maps. Starting location is shown as a green pin and ending location is shown as a red pin. Current location is shown via the blue dot. Speed, average speed, distance, and time of the recording is also being tracked and displayed. Video recording resolution can be adjusted in the Settings page via three modes, high, medium, and low. iPhone 4 allows the user to record the video at 720p resolution in High setting. Video recording can be recorded in all landscape and portrait modes. Screen recording feature allows the recording, playback and sharing of the whole screen.


While playing back the video on the iPhone, the user can see where the video was recorded on the displayed Google Maps via the blue dot which tracks the user’s location at the given time along the highlighted route. Starting point and end point of the route is displayed via a green pin and red pin respectively. Speed, average speed, and distance is also displayed and reflects the speed, average speed, and distance at that time and location of the video recording. User can fast forward or rewind the video to a specific time or place on the map. Newly incorporated AirPlay feature allows the video to be shared via the AirPlay enabled devices.
