The BMW Advanced Car Eye 2.0 is packed with cutting-edge in-car camera technologies in a package that fits perfectly with the design cues of your BMW.

What is the most essential accessory for drivers in Singapore? Instantly, almost everyone thinks of in-car cameras. Most cars on the road today are equipped with an in-car camera as it serves as a reliable eyewitness for all incidents on the road and allows you to drive with a peace of mind.

Advanced Car Eye 2.0
Designed by BMW and built with select premium materials, the BMW Advanced Car Eye 2.0 (ACE2.0) camera seamlessly fits into BMW cars. The ACE 2.0 is equipped with a proximity and vibration sensor, which allows it to detect possible accidents or theft outside the car. It is also able to discern between everyday movements, and will only start recording when something out of the ordinary occurs.

Picture-perfect details
With a 2.4 megapixel sensor, the ACE2.0 records full-HD videos with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 at a maximum of 60 frames per second (fps) and 30 fps for the front and rear respectively. As such, the ACE2.0 outperforms other popular in-car cameras which are only able to record at 30 fps. The high resolution of the ACE2.0 ensures a detailed image, while the higher frames per second allows clearer images to be taken, especially when the object is travelling at high speeds. The various sensors found in the ACE2.0 also work together to produce high-quality images regardless of time of day.

The ACE2.0 is also equipped with 150 degrees wide view angle glass lenses which enables it to capture a wider field of view, ensuring most of what you see as a driver is captured by the in-car camera as well. This is an upgrade from the 120 degrees viewing angle found on the ACE1.0, and also an edge over other in-car cameras which have 140 degrees viewing angle or less.

Peace of mind at all times
When on the road, the ACE2.0's G sensors reliably detect impacts and ensure a video is recorded. A parking mode is also available where videos will be automatically recorded when the car has been parked and vibrations, unusual movements or impacts are detected. The ACE2.0 records up to 24 hours in parking mode, ensuring a peace of mind while your car is parked.
Simple and easy to operate
The ACE2.0 is affixed to the windscreen with double-sided adhesive tape via a sliding mount, which allows the front camera to be easily removed if desired. Settings can be controlled through the use of an app while manual control keys are incorporated ergonomically on the camera.

Videos recorded are also categorised and saved in respective folders in the SD card provided, this makes searching for them a much simpler task. Reviewing recorded videos is a breeze with either the app or through a computer using the included USB adapter for the SD card.

The BMW Advanced Car Eye 2.0 is currently offered at an exclusive introductory price of $999, inclusive of front & rear camera, labour and 7%GST and comes with a 2 year warranty.
