In this post, I review the Jomise K7 Dash Cam. The K7 has many interesting features, and the build quality and video resolution are good. However, it also has quite a few drawbacks, mostly to do with the software app and getting the files to playback on laptops or PCs.

In the video, I show the installation of the Jomise K7, then demo it in action on cloudy and sunny days and at night. I also show comparison footage at the same time from my Akaso Trace 1 Pro dashcam.
The most unique thing about the K7 is its green light and car in front moving forward alerts. So, I give you some real-world footage of that in the action.
Jomise K7 Dash Cam Review Video
- Simple design with one USB cord to hook up
- GPS receiver built into the dashcam
- Solid feel to the plastics
- 1600P video resolution
- Decent performance in low light
- Small form factor
- Interesting traffic warning features
- Simple and nicely responsive touch screen
- Can do 60 FPS @ 1080P
- Poor sound pickup inside the vehicle
- Windshield mounting via a stick-on pad
- Video files difficult to playback on my computers
- Had to use a QR code to activate
- App seems clunky to use and incomplete
- 4G cell functions mentioned but not available
- The app completely froze my phone once
- Instruction manual too small of text
- Greenlight alert works about 80 – 90% of the time
- Unknown brand name to me
- Support appears to be only via email
- High Price
Overall, the Jomise K7 has good performance and cool features but needs some work. If the app software, usability, and support are refined, this can be a fairly decent little dashcam. But at this time, especially considering it costs $199, I can’t give it a thumbs up.
Update: Jomise is currently offering a promo code on the camera Code: 8HN286QR(30% off) so knocks the down to $139.99
