Thank goodness

I purchased this dashcam because I had become concerned with the security of my vehicle when it was parked at home. I was not expecting it to come in so handy. My spouce was driving and was in a serious car accident - the dashcam caught it all. If it weren't for the evidence we provided he may have been deemed liable for the collision. It paid for itself instantly by allowing us to show what really happened. In our other vehicle, I wish I had installed one as well. My licence plates were stollen, and when I reported it to the police, they asked me specifically if I had any dashcam evidence - wish I had. I would recommend purchasing this dashcam. It's so affordable, and it saved us thousands. The peice of mind is worth it.

You get what you paid for

I got this for Christmas and I have to say for the price, I am pretty impressed. The video quality is 1080p. The view at night time is excellent. You do not have to format the card, as it is continuous recording. People complain about not being able to see license plates from far away. I tested it out and it see's as far as the eye can see. So if you can't read a license plate with your naked 20/20 eye, neither will this camera. The video quality however is a bit grainy, but it is what you paid for. If you're looking for a cheap dash cam with good quality and features, I would purchase this. I also suggest buying the GPS antenna that connects to this device as it enables location and speed on the recordings.

Functioning well.

Dashcam is working well. The date and time stamp is not very accurate, but images are acceptable during night and day. Unable to read license plate of vehicles in the front unless its within 1 - 2 metre in front. No complains for the price.

No wifi or bluetooth connection

Useless camera. How to configure and install it correctly if there is no way to see where it focus. Doesn't deserve more than 1 start as I cannot test it any further. Don't waste your time and money on this one

Nice Entry Level Dash Cam

If you're expecting crystal clear recording, this dash cam may not be the one for you. Recording in daylight captures a lot of glare from the windshield and night time recording is a hit or miss. I find the perfect conditions for recording is with low light (i.e. evening or cloudy days). The dash cam is ultra small so it can be mounted behind the rear view mirror and remain hidden from the outside. I wanted to save my accessory port so I hardwired the camera directly to my fuse box. Your SD card will fill up quickly so I suggest you upgrade to a 64GB card immediately. Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase. It's a nice little dash cam without breaking the bank.

best 100 dash cam out there

picture is a little bit grainny. at night hard to see license plate. u want park mode have to purchase that 40 cable, than i don't see on best buy selling it. it sticks on the windshield which is good because u don't want fly out when hit like suction cup. for another 100, u can get black vue build in park mode, so u don't have to buy a cable kit, which is stupid to buy.
