The NAVITEL R300 GPS video recorder can be called a unique device in the company’s entire line of cameras. In it, the manufacturer has added new useful features, including informing about the approach to fixation cameras and radars, as well as displaying a digital speedometer on the device display. How it works in practice, we will describe below, but for now we will briefly introduce you to the design features of the novelty and its construction.

Appearance and mounting features

Test DVR NAVITEL R300 GPS: a clear assistant on the roadDVR NAVITEL R300 GPS outwardly, it practically does not differ from its predecessor — DVR R200, which also visited our test and liked the high quality of video recording. Interestingly, the menus and settings in the new model have changed and become closer in design to the MSR 200 DVR.

The novelty has a bright and clear display with a diagonal of 2 inches and a resolution of 320×240 pixels. Its coating is matte, which ensures that there are no reflections even in bright side sunlight.

Everything related to power and fastening is located on the top edge of the DVR body. The control buttons are located on the front side under the screen. The two left ones are for calling the menu and switching between sections. In the center is the OK confirmation button, which also starts and stops video recording. Two right buttons — move up and down through the menu items.

Test DVR NAVITEL R300 GPS: a clear assistant on the roadIt is quite convenient to mount the DVR on the windshield — a small suction cup with a hinged bracket is included. The latter allows you to flexibly adjust the position of the camera, up to directing it in the opposite direction, which can be useful for shooting the interior while parking.

Test DVR NAVITEL R300 GPS: a clear assistant on the roadBut this design also has a couple of shortcomings. For example, the power connector is located on the upper edge on the right side and, during everyday installation and removal of the camera, it is quite difficult to find it with a plug. In addition, it is impossible to remove the camera without disconnecting the plug due to the design of the latch, which must be pressed just from the side of the connector.

However, we liked that the suction cup holder is small and practically does not interfere with the view from the driver’s seat. The manufacturer, judging by the instructions, recommends installing the camera to the right of the mirror and pulling the power cable from the cigarette lighter there. By the way, the kit comes with a fairly long cable — about 2.5 m with a proprietary adapter.

There really is a secluded place for installation, but, in our opinion, it is located very far from the driver in order to quickly control the camera, while its screen is covered by a mirror. It is much more convenient for him to stand either in the left corner of the windshield, or to the left of the mirror.

Equipment, menus and controls

Test DVR NAVITEL R300 GPS: a clear assistant on the roadThe device received an advanced filling — a more powerful processor and an improved video encoding algorithm, the results of which we will demonstrate below. As we mentioned above, the main innovation in the NAVITEL R300 GPS is the built-in GPS receiver, which adds informer functions to the camera.

Test DVR NAVITEL R300 GPS: a clear assistant on the roadThis model has an MSTAR MSC8336 processor and a GC2053 matrix, one of the advantages of which is the high-quality shooting mode at night (night vision). The camera can record video with a maximum resolution of FullHD 1920×1080 and a frequency of 30fps. At the same time, video can also be recorded in HD (1280 × 720) to save space on the memory card. But the clarity in this video mode will be significantly lower.

It is worth noting that before you get ready for the road, you definitely need to find a few minutes and set up the DVR for your preferences at least for the first time. By default, only the video recording mode is enabled in it, and the GPS informer is disabled.

The settings are quite simple and will not take much time to master in the menu.

The main thing to remember is that the left button with the letter M is for switching modes (video shooting, photo shooting and viewing), and the button with three dashes is a call to the settings menu. You can also use the M button to switch between sections.

How the camera shoots and the GPS informer works

As field tests of the camera showed, the image quality of this model surpassed even more expensive devices from other brands. Car numbers in the daytime in sunny and cloudy weather are perfectly visible both on passing and oncoming vehicles at a distance of about 15 meters and closer.​

The color reproduction is good, the shades are natural, the contrast is quite sufficient to display objects at a great distance. I liked that the camera responds well to the light in the frame, making the picture perfect in terms of detail in the shade and in the sun. In the evening and at night, the camera shoots in much the same way as the human eye sees, but noise appears and details are blurred in fast scenes.

If you need to slightly change the illumination, there is an exposure compensation item in the settings, which will allow you to achieve the perfect frame detail. You can watch videos in original quality in our cloud storage.

Test DVR NAVITEL R300 GPS: a clear assistant on the roadThe manufacturer separately notes that the camera sensor is ideally suited for shooting at night, providing an excellent picture. As tests have shown, the camera does a really good job at night, perfectly capturing the general situation on the road, including distant objects. But we did not manage to distinguish the numbers either on passing or oncoming cars due to the strong illumination of the signs and the high graininess of the picture. A big hindrance in this is the headlights of oncoming cars, which the automation tries to muffle a little, but this does not save. Alas, even more expensive premium DVRs have not yet managed to achieve readable numbers at night on oncoming cars.

Test DVR NAVITEL R300 GPS: a clear assistant on the roadAfter you activate the “GPS speedometer” function in the parameters in the “General settings” section (the “Speed” and “Speed ​​+ Time” display modes are available, this DVR also becomes a convenient informant about the current speed. It is displayed on the screen in large numbers green (within the allowed range) and red, if exceeded.

But on this, as you probably guessed, the functions of the informant do not end there. When activated in the menu item «Show. cameras”, the informant will notify you about approaching the fixation camera and other hazards from a distance of 450 m to 0. Other hazards include pedestrian crossings, speed bumps, traffic lights and dangerous turns. This is very convenient, because allows you to prepare in advance for such events. The only downside here is the inability to set the notification distance in the menu, for example, not 450 m, but 800 or 600 m. After all, the camera draws information about the POI location from the coordinates embedded in it. In addition, in the informer mode, the camera displays the captured image on the screen for only 30 seconds, and then it is replaced by a speed and prompt display screen.

In the near future, a database of fixation cameras will be available on the manufacturer’s website, which will be updated on a regular basis.

Also, it would be nice to add to the informer the function to add markers for installing mobile cameras and other obstacles.

The device has the ability to activate the shock sensor and adjust its sensitivity. This will activate the recording in the parking lot, in case the car was hit and record this moment. In motion during video recording, to block the recorded current video fragment from subsequent automatic overwriting, you need to briefly press the button with the letter M.

Product Conclusion:

The NAVITEL R300 GPS video recorder was liked by the high quality of the recorded video, where, in addition to the general environment, the license plates of cars on passing and oncoming vehicles are clearly visible, which even many expensive models cannot boast of. In addition, the device can also act as an anti-radar and navigator, warning of dangers on the track. Such assistance will be a good addition to your navigator. By the way, as a bonus, the manufacturer gives a key with the device for 1 year of using the Navitel Navigator auto-navigation program. Given the low cost of the device — less than , we can safely recommend this camera for purchase as an indispensable assistant on the road.
