​Thanks for this.
I need it for cycling. Not sure if it's suitable. Article says yes but Tom Tom site says no!
What's wrong with taking your phone with you when cycling?
good find op, heat added
Not really an activity monitor (step counter) more for full on sports analysis. Had mine for a year and proved invaluable in my marathon training. Brilliant, bought one today for the missus, thanks op.
Nearly clicked reserve... Does this one count your steps and stairs if anyone know please
Paid £180 for this 14-months ago! Excellent watch... GPS, continuous heart rate monitoring, water resistant, etc.

Crane GPS watch and HR monitor from Aldi instore for £24.99

Seems like a decent deal for a GPS watch on its own. The bundled HR monitor is an extra bonus. I have tested the HR strap and it doesn't have to be used with the GPS watch; it works with RunKeeper too…

Can these log GPS data for later download or not?
Yes they can log data and you can get at it a few ways.

Be warned though the YouTube video in the post above is NOT this watch.. that's the older one, which has more features than the current one this deal refers too (which I suspect was deliberately simplified).
A lot of the stuff in that video isn't in this watch.

Compass and waypoints are the big features not in the current one.

Edited By: dreamsofubuntu on Jul 29, 2016 00:54: answered my own question
Sportstracker is far better than the ALDI app.
There are others out there, Runkeeper, Strava Running, Adidas Train & Run, Nike+ Running etc.. but Sportracker works great for me and works well with the the aldi heartrate monitor via bluetooth (the HRM has got a low power form of bluetooth and only some apps cater for it I think). It doesn't need many permissions either.

I also wear Bluetooth headphones (https://www.amazon.co.uk/SANDSTROM-SBTHP11-Bluetooth-Headphones-Black/dp/B00CP4WHUU - prob the best £19 I have spent in my life - I cannot recommend BT headphones enough) while running so my Android smartphone is playing music or podcasts, and Sportstracker interrupts every mile and tells me through the headphones my pace, heartrates, miles done etc... its really good! Plots it all on a map etc.. like the others.

BTW: You can very simply buy replacement coin batteries for the Aldi HRM - CR2032s I think - from the Poundshop - a quid for a pile of them.

Edited By: trampjuice on Jul 28, 2016 20:21: x
What about HRR parameter for this HR strap, does it measure HRR, as Polar H7?
The accuracy of the HR strap is just as good as the Polar H7; I'm testing by wearing both at the same time. The reported values are always within 1-2 BPM of each other. (exactly how accurate they are I have no idea, but at least they match!)

As an added bonus, this cheap HR strap is easier to put on and take off than the Polar.

Hi there,

Shame as it would have been a perfect upgrade to my 305, but I quite fancy a new heart rate sensor too.
​that's not the same email as I got but I can't add a picture on my phone. But if your a British cycling member you cam get a new sensor for £36 From halfords if your local has stock
Strange, as the HC in the description means that the sensors are included.

I think I'm going to hold out for a decent price on the 505.
​yes I ordered one yesterday as I need the navigation for france already have heart rate strap from my 105 but any any ant+ strap will work I still think it's a bargain even If I only get the head unit but boy will I kick off

Let us know either way?

If it does I may place an order since it's the same processor as the 505 - my 305 is incredibly slow with distances over 55 miles...

received mine with Monday also with the Red HRM, which I believe is better/newer than the previous version. Firmware was version 3.80; so update to the latest "stable" 7.20

applied a screen protector and will test tomorrow on the pool and short run.....10 miler on Sunday and hiking next week. Let's see how it behaves 8)

it does look nice. I might get another silicone/metal wrist strap from the bay
Arrived today with the red run hrm. I see the basic version was on Amazon Prime for £229.
Just recieved an email saying they've depatched my order, so that's good news :)
Ordered the cheaper version.... Fingers crossed.....

I wonder if they'll repeat this deal. I want this badly.

Hey Marty, Millets & Blacks have these back in stock
I wonder if they'll repeat this deal. I want this badly.
Ditto had the 235 since Christmas, paid £250 for it .. this is a steal. HRM is fine if you wear it right - sure not as good as a strap but miles more convenient. I broadcast HRM to my bike computer daily during the commute where I'm doing steady pace and it's great.
I've had my 235 since January and there were issues with irregular spiking, Bluetooth connectivity issues etc. There's been various software updates and I'm more than happy with mine now. No strap needed with this. It's all done thru the watch. This is a great price. Good post.
I had the 225 and it regularly told me I was burning over 1500 calories on a 5 mile run due to erratic hrm
the optical hrm had me dead for 25% of time at 0 bpm, then 25% at over 250 bpm
needless to say I sold it on
chap who I sold it too wasn't best pleased but I told him to take it up with garmin
chest strap with a 230 and it regularly reads 550-560 cals for same run at 157-170 bpm constant depending in gradient

Complete opposite to my experience. I ordered early on the Friday morning and it was delivered on the Saturday around lunch time. I wouldn't have any hesitation to order from them again!
I agree is a really great price. So much so that i bought one last week. I ordered it at about 4:15pm on a thursday. I noticed that the cut off time for next day delivery was at 4. I rang them up and they said they would try and get it out that day. 15 mins later i get a phone call saying its made it out that day and is on its way. I had email confirmation saying this even a tracking number. Then 20 mins later i get a phone call saying ohhh sorry the box has scratches and so does the watch as we open up every item before we send it out to check its ok. So we cant send you it and your order been cancled. To be fair to them, then refunded my money straight away. It was via PayPal i paid, i do wonder how quick they would of refunded my money if i paid via debit card. But from the phone call it was clear that it was **** and they never had any fenix 3's in stock at all. Just like a lot of other places that sell these cheep that say they are in stock, you order it, then all of a sudden its gonna be 12-24 days. Ive not had any other dealings with Handtec before, but my first time with them didnt go as planned. It now says on there website, watches are due in on the 6th. If you order one, at least use PayPal so its easier to put a claim in if it goes wrong.

Hope this helps someone.

Code is no longer valid.
That is surprising as I returned my fenix as my parent got me one as well for fathers day and it was about 3 weeks at the return time but I had been signed up to one of those loyalty cards, Did not have the recipe but they tool it back.
It's only up to the customer to prove its faulty after six months.

Even though this might be a good price, remember there customer service is just appalling. Firstly I got the watch after nearly 2 weeks and then had a piece with a light bleed, so sent it back. Now they won't accept this as a defect and continuously refer that Garmin say this is normal. I have a pebble time and don't see any light bleed on that one, but apparently they have spoken to Garmin and Garmin say the watch is fine. I have a feeling they have not even contacted them. So its been a month and 10 days and I am still without a watch. And also throughout this whole month and 10 days not a single email or a phone call to update me of the status. I had to call them everytime to get things done.
Now read this carefully, they said they can't accept a return because I had removed the top plastic layer from the watch screen. Do NOT remove that. Try the watch first with it on so you can return it without hassle.
Also if someone can please send me a snap of the screen with the plastic thing on, as I remember is was just a black watch face kind and had to be removed to see the screen. But I might be wrong.
Now I feel, only if I could have waited for an Amazon deal.
​cotsworld have a 30 day return policy so you can return it if you don't like it. surely you can't try a watch with the top protector on. also you would be covered under the distance selling regulation act wouldn't you ?
Not sure what the rules are anymore. Retailers somehow find an excuse not to accept returns even though its a defect. They said since I removed the top protector cover they can't accept it as a return. My pebble time does not have any light bleed. Strange thing is Garmin consider it as normal.
Long distance regulations are 14 days to return an item bought online but most retailers have a 30 day return policy. The item does need to be returned in its original condition and packaging. Remember they then have to try and sell it again and if people remove protective packaging then that becomes difficult.
The 30 day return policy does not have anything to do with faulty items. If an item is faulty you have a years warranty if not 2 depending on the item, electrical items have 2 within the eu. You have a choice with a faulty item. You can contact the manufacturer for repair or return the item to the retailer of which they can either refund , replace or repair but it is actually up to the customer to prove the item is faulty.

I moved to this watch after my Garmin forerunner give up the ghost and died.
Ran a town centre race last week, my TomTom had a GPS fix before the vast majority of Garmin users who had to hold their arms in the air.
Battery life is superb. I run daily and get away with charging the watch once or twice a week. If you don't use GPS the watch lasts for ages without needing a charge.
It's far more waterproof than other watches in this price range.

The only downside is the tomtom web GUI is no where near as good as the garmin equivalent.
I have a tomtom watch and they do work well. I run four times a week and my watch is great to help me pace myself.
Cracking watch this is! Probably less features than a garmin but so much easier to use

Good deal. It's also available at Sweatshop for that price but delivery is £4.99 there. (Plus Sweatshop is owned by Sports Direct, which will put some people off).http://www.sweatshop.com/tomtom-runner-gps-00-760210?colcode=76021019

I would personaly stick to Garmin the Tom Tom is not very acurate especialy with a bit of tree cover or high buildings

I've been using one of these this year (about 600miles year to date) and I've never had any accuracy problems. Locks on quickly too

Has anyone had this delivered yet and can confirm whether it is the Sapphire model?

I've had mine delivered and it is definitely the Silver model as shown if you select Silver from the drop down on the Garmin Product page: https://buy.garmin.com/en-GB/GB/prod545480.html

Since Sapphire isn't mentioned anywhere on the packaging then I assume it's a non-sapphire crystal as per the Garmin site: "fēnix 3 HR Silver edition with protected domed crystal lens"

Great watch though, but big! I'm finding my vivoactive HR is spending more time on my wrist than the fenix, hopefully the fenix 4 will be a bit smaller! Only needs to be by a small amount though!
I find my Vivoactive HR uncomfortable on my wrist, might just be me though.
That is the not the sapphire version, the sapphire version as stated as the 12-3 o'clock markings in silver, then dark. The one in the video below the listing is the sapphire version.

I suppose this is okay for cycling, but you can pick up a cycle computer much cheaper.
Anyone training for a marathon will want a HRM for sprint training etc, so overall a bit lukewarm.
Quality GPS watch + HRM for £75 would be a hot deal.

This does GPS your bike ride so a GPS bike computer is a tad more expensive from a quick look around plus the cadence sensor and the swimming option, I think this is still great value

Is this supposed to stay in the car or is it easily removable?
Wouldn't want the car broken into for the camera :(
It's easily removable, there is a switch on the adhesive cradle.
Apologies for my probably unneccessary uncertainty, but if it is adhesive rather than suction cup, would this mean the cradle would be permanently stuck to your windscreen? So I wanted to sell my car in a few months it would either need removing and cleaning or sell with the car?
if you wish to remove the adhesive holder - i haven't tried this yet but people recommend a hair dryer to 'melt' the adhesive - others say dental floss to 'saw' through. Mines only been on for a week so it's well and truely stuck on. Will try both methods later and let you know.
I wondered as I'm going to have a car temporarily for about three months and I was hoping to pick one of these up, but given the potential of damage it could cause, I've decided to wait. Thanks though, good luck when you do decide to remove it!

I've done it, it's easy, using a hairdryer heat from outside, then inside then outside again. I used a metal spatula and came off, the adhesive is basically like chewing gum and the actual plastic holder is perfectly clean.

It's a bit of a lottery but I did have to pay customs charges on mine, think it was about 20 quid. Had lots of stuff from China in the past and this was the first time I've had to pay

which is why the cellphone you already own is the "no time" or "cost" option. I'm on my bike tour of Europe as I write this. Yesterday I rode for 10hrs, radio on listening to Glastonbury, navigation via Google maps running (beta cycling routs are 99% spot on) and logging the ride on Strata. Took a few pictures, checked my email 68% percent battery left when I made camp. Will get another 10hrs use out of it today.

Buy what you like, but you already own the best device for the job. Try getting a bright 5.2 inch screen on your Garmin, or listen to the radio, or get audio navigation instructions with two days runtime.

I've 150 miles to Portsmouth and 32 hours till my ferry to Cherborg. Can't sit and chat all day...my device can, but I have somewhere better to be.

Cheers and happy routes to you all.

Pointless product IMHO. If you're touring you don't need HR monitor, a cell phone in a case will have a longer lasting battery and more functionality and you'll probably have a cell phone with you anyway. If you need HR monitor than you probably want cadence as well which this doesn't do even with a cadence sensor.
I just spent two weeks researching the subject as I'm following the TDF this year on my bike. Almost bought this but it really makes no sense. Got a used Xperia off eBay (waterproof and expendable) for £60 and a Quad lock universal mount £22. Will do navigation, email, sms, calls, play games, Web browsing etc. etc. etc. and battery will still out do the Garmin Touring, plus I can choose from 100s of mapping apps. Oh and has Ant+ support so my old HR monitor will work an all. Using a mobile is the option most recommended by hardcore/pro cycle tourists.
Save your money, use your mobile.
I think your talking a lot of rubbish. I use a heart rate monitor but don't need to know how fast my legs are turning. If your following the tdf then I guess the roads are mapped for you and you probably won't need the gps running maps and have the device showing you the way. How long does the battery last while tracking you and following a map. I bet it's not 16 hours. I know what I would prefer if I was touring and it wouldnt be a mobile. I def go for the Garmin and have the phone separate to keep the battery from going flat or in case the phone fell off or you crashed and ruined your only way of calling for help. So you've spent £82 for second hand phone to go your handlebars. Not that expendable either and if you did want a hr band that would be an extra £30. All in all, I think this is a good buy if anyone's on the fence. Garmin just work and do the job. Worrying about downloading apps that have maps already built in because if you loose reception you'll be lost. You'll also see the 'hardcore/pro cycle tourists' with a map in their pannier too I expect.
​Follow the blogs of full time touring cyclist and most of them will tell you to use your cell phone or a dedicated GPS, fact. The touch screen on this is woeful and almost pointless. The battery will last about 6-10 hours in the real world as reported by most users and reviewers of the product and it takes 8-9 hrs to recharge (fast charge smartphone will get 50% juiced during a one hour coffee stop sat next to a plug socket). You already own a device that does all of that this does and more, you'll be taking it with you anyway so why double up, spend 150+ drinking vouchers on something that performs worse than what you already own, is less fluid and more clunky to use, ties you to a limited supply of maps and no choice in nav software, adds weight, another thing to recharge (not easy if you are camping) and is very slow to recharge, it's another thing to go wrong, lose or be damaged etc. etc. etc. Drop your bike in the middle of nowhere and break your phone? Just buy another cheap one from the nearest town. Break your Garmin Touring? Er........
If you are going on a serious tour... don't bother with this, it is a waste of your money and a poor solution.
If you are going for a spin around your local back country lanes, are a bit of a poser (MAMIL, all the gear/no idea) and want to look flash (aka a wally) by having "Garmin biker kit" and like to throw your money away... then this is definately the product for you. Although why anyone would be searching for bargains on this website if they are so reckless with their money would be beyond me.
ps. I almost bought this a few weeks ago, went all the way to the check out page but decided to do research on what everyone else used and recommended before committing. I'm a bit obsessive/compulsive, so 'a bit of research' means a few weeks of reading endless blogs, articles, reviews and magazines. The overwhelming concensus and weight of facts have shaped my opinion, not the other way around.
pps. If you are going touring and definately want a bike computer, get a Garmin 520 (or similar) and use your cell phone for navigation with offline maps if you want/need turn-by-turn nav.

Well as someone who tours and camps I would say I disagree. Yes it is an extra thing to carry and yes it is annoying to have to charge but many things are these days - radio/e-reader/lights etc. Battery life is 10 hours+ for me. I got it because I got no more than 3-4 hours of navigation out of my phone and I needed that for other things also. A phone with an external battery might work but you then have the issue of charging that up anyway and wires all over the bike. I'll be doing Land's End to John O'Groats over the summer and wouldn't go without the Garmin. Of course I'll have all the routes on my phone as well in Viewranger with the same map as on the Garmin (of which there are many that can be uploaded) for backup and overview (instead of paper based maps). The Garmin isn't for everyone and it has its quirks and a few things I don't like but I've found it invaluable and a far better solution than my phone for not a huge amount of money - I think the basic version is more like £135.


​Yes you will get about 4hrs out of a cell phone using it for gps... if you don't know what you are doing and how to use a smartphone as a gps. Real world battery runtime of over 24hrs is achievable if you know what you are doing and you focus is on turn by turning routing and not 24hr phone connectivity.

To be clear, some of you seem to be confusing "useless" with "pointless". The former means it will do nothing of value, the latter means that the services it provides are poor value! I said that this was pointless because it provides £ for £ inferior services, function, runtime and practicality with a cellphone and is terrible compared to handheld GPS.

If you're looking for best value and as you are here on Hotukdeals.com that seems like a reasonable assumption, then in descening order these are the best options for serious bicycle touring:

Smartphone with 3000MaPh+ battery.
Hand held trekking GPS.
GPS bike computer.

The best solution irrespective of price/value is the handheld GPS (you can get bike mounts for them). Garmin make some excellent ones understand the eTrex and Oregon a budget and Montana if you want to splash the cash. These will give you as much as 30hrs runtime so as much as 3-5 days and some use AA batteries so getting replacements is easy globally.

The 'problem' with these Garmin Touring computers is that Garmin have given it the wrong name. Garmin themselves don't call this a touring computer, they describe it as for recreational use. It's region specific and new maps will cost you money from Garmin, road maps for South America will cost you £75. God knows how much it will cost for global coverage. Not a good buy for hardcore tourists looking for value!

To recap: does this computer work? Yes. Will it navigate you? Yes. Does it add anything to your ride that you don't already own or will have with you anyway? No. Are there better options? Yes. Are there better value options? Yes. Is buying this computer pointless for most people? Yes. Is there a particular reason to buy this computer? Yes. What is it? Because I 'want' one.

I'm not saying don't buy it, I'm saying you don't need it, it's a waste of money.

I think you have too much time on your hands. Some people just want to grab a device that just works in getting you somewhere. They don't have technical ability or even be bothered to find out - they just want to ride. I haven't read all of your long post either (sorry) but again people don't have time for this stuff.
Theadebo
It's region specific and new maps will cost you money from Garmin, road maps for South America will cost you £75. God knows how much it will cost for global coverage.

A couple of final points. You can upload Open Cycle Maps no problem and for free. I did use an eTrex 20 on a tour of Holland which was a bit fiddly and lacked cycle specific stuff which the Touring has although, as mentioned, I liked the ability to use rechargeable AAs. After seeing my mate's Garmin 800 on that trip though it was clear it was way better for cycling than the eTrex so I picked up the cheaper Touring which suited my needs almost perfectly.

If you're touring you don't need HR monitor, a cell phone in a case will have a longer lasting battery and more functionality and you'll probably have a cell phone with you anyway. If you need HR monitor than you probably want cadence as well which this doesn't do even with a cadence sensor.
I just spent two weeks researching the subject as I'm following the TDF this year on my bike. Almost bought this but it really makes no sense. Got a used Xperia off eBay (waterproof and expendable) for £60 and a Quad lock universal mount £22. Will do navigation, email, sms, calls, play games, Web browsing etc. etc. etc. and battery will still out do the Garmin Touring, plus I can choose from 100s of mapping apps. Oh and has Ant+ support so my old HR monitor will work an all. Using a mobile is the option most recommended by hardcore/pro cycle tourists.
Save your money, use your mobile.
I think your talking a lot of rubbish. I use a heart rate monitor but don't need to know how fast my legs are turning. If your following the tdf then I guess the roads are mapped for you and you probably won't need the gps running maps and have the device showing you the way. How long does the battery last while tracking you and following a map. I bet it's not 16 hours. I know what I would prefer if I was touring and it wouldnt be a mobile. I def go for the Garmin and have the phone separate to keep the battery from going flat or in case the phone fell off or you crashed and ruined your only way of calling for help. So you've spent £82 for second hand phone to go your handlebars. Not that expendable either and if you did want a hr band that would be an extra £30. All in all, I think this is a good buy if anyone's on the fence. Garmin just work and do the job. Worrying about downloading apps that have maps already built in because if you loose reception you'll be lost. You'll also see the 'hardcore/pro cycle tourists' with a map in their pannier too I expect.
​Follow the blogs of full time touring cyclist and most of them will tell you to use your cell phone or a dedicated GPS, fact. The touch screen on this is woeful and almost pointless. The battery will last about 6-10 hours in the real world as reported by most users and reviewers of the product and it takes 8-9 hrs to recharge (fast charge smartphone will get 50% juiced during a one hour coffee stop sat next to a plug socket). You already own a device that does all of that this does and more, you'll be taking it with you anyway so why double up, spend 150+ drinking vouchers on something that performs worse than what you already own, is less fluid and more clunky to use, ties you to a limited supply of maps and no choice in nav software, adds weight, another thing to recharge (not easy if you are camping) and is very slow to recharge, it's another thing to go wrong, lose or be damaged etc. etc. etc. Drop your bike in the middle of nowhere and break your phone? Just buy another cheap one from the nearest town. Break your Garmin Touring? Er........
If you are going on a serious tour... don't bother with this, it is a waste of your money and a poor solution.
If you are going for a spin around your local back country lanes, are a bit of a poser (MAMIL, all the gear/no idea) and want to look flash (aka a wally) by having "Garmin biker kit" and like to throw your money away... then this is definately the product for you. Although why anyone would be searching for bargains on this website if they are so reckless with their money would be beyond me.
ps. I almost bought this a few weeks ago, went all the way to the check out page but decided to do research on what everyone else used and recommended before committing. I'm a bit obsessive/compulsive, so 'a bit of research' means a few weeks of reading endless blogs, articles, reviews and magazines. The overwhelming concensus and weight of facts have shaped my opinion, not the other way around.
pps. If you are going touring and definately want a bike computer, get a Garmin 520 (or similar) and use your cell phone for navigation with offline maps if you want/need turn-by-turn nav.

Well as someone who tours and camps I would say I disagree. Yes it is an extra thing to carry and yes it is annoying to have to charge but many things are these days - radio/e-reader/lights etc. Battery life is 10 hours+ for me. I got it because I got no more than 3-4 hours of navigation out of my phone and I needed that for other things also. A phone with an external battery might work but you then have the issue of charging that up anyway and wires all over the bike. I'll be doing Land's End to John O'Groats over the summer and wouldn't go without the Garmin. Of course I'll have all the routes on my phone as well in Viewranger with the same map as on the Garmin (of which there are many that can be uploaded) for backup and overview (instead of paper based maps). The Garmin isn't for everyone and it has its quirks and a few things I don't like but I've found it invaluable and a far better solution than my phone for not a huge amount of money - I think the basic version is more like £135.

Wow - I keep getting knocked back by these brands and just how much you get for your money. Once these suppliers get a foothold and create/improve their European operations, then I wouldn't risk being a shareholder in the more established brands.


​Been waiting for that for years now. Have come to realise that our snotty nosed public will always be influenced by flashy ads instead of using their heads.
Camera pics and video looks really poor to me, would have gone for it otherwise

One thing that may put prospective buyers off is the un-removable camera but it's quite common at this price point.
you mean battery right ?
Woops, yes, I mean battery. I'll edit it.

Reviews of sorts for those interested. http://www.xiaomitoday.com/vernee-thor-review/http://www.phonesreview.co.uk/2016/05/20/vernee-thor-review/
Dreadful cameras, not good with high end games despite the spec but given the price and the rest of the features it looks half decent. I bought a Leagoo Lead 5 for the same price and far less spec and its still flying along with no issues whatsoever so taking a risk with these unknown Chinese brands can be extremely cost saving.
Reviews also mention no bloatware which is a bonus.
The xiaomitoday review is in the very first post (Post #1) :p The reviews do look good, though haven't seen that bad feedback about the cameras. Sometimes a bit washed out, depending on what you focus on, but detailing is good (see 7:15 here https://youtu.be/YhuYgFJmN8k?t=435 ). The xiaomitoday link's picture thumbnails look rubbish but they're actually pretty decent when you click on them for a close-up view.

Wrong.

Better off just using your iPhone and sticking it to the windscreen whilst driving. Cheap and good resolution. And has GPS too..
I'll get me coat..
Way too much of a faff everytime. These dashcams record automatically and let you drive without needing to do a thing. They recycle saved video files (old ones get overwritten), so again you don't need to do anything or waste data space.
I recommend the Autovox B40 wedge cam, it's pretty much hidden but you still have a screen to see what you're recording, plus it's pretty top spec dash cam.
or B40C which uses capacitor which is apparently better and I am impressed with it after about a week's use.
This A118 wedge camera looks like exactly what I'm after, but I need one which has its own rechargeable power supply that will last up to, say, 2 hours. From what I gather, that rules out the capacitor version. I presume there is at least one battery version, and if so how long will the battery last? Alternatively (and not an ideal solution), is it possible to power it from, say, a USB power bank?
Thanks,

The capacitor version might be safer in "hot" conditions (which may not be encountered in the UK anyways). The battery version won't hold the charge for more than 10 min, I am almost sure. You could hardwire the camera to your car battery if the switching engine off cuts of your 12V power supply. This should run from a portable battery (but could be a fire risk) as I was able to run the camera from a laptop usb port You do get 2 types of USB cables with this, one for car socket and another for laptop/portable chargers.

OK, thanks. The reason I was asking is because I'm looking for a camera that I can use to video my squash games when I play, and this A118 with its wide-angle lens sounded ideal. The trouble is there wouldn't be any power supply in the vicinity. So, from what you have said I should be able to use the capacitor version with a decent USB power bank? Does it say on it what power it requires via USB?

Thanks,

Wouldn't bother with the GPS to be honest. Mobius Action Camera is the way to go, excellent footage at night and the size of a matchbox. About the same price.

Yes I have just ordered one from banggood for my car - BMW forum peeps love them, but purchased this for my daughters car.

She is a new driver and as part of the "I will be a nice dad and buy you a car" contract I insisted on fitting a dash-cam with GPS for a bit of security and for my own investigation if I suspect any driving silliness.
Will keep her honest for a while if she suspects I might review her driving style at any moment and steal her keys away :D

For £49 (the mobius is around the same price as you say) you get a screen, GPS and no interference with DAB radio, which the Mobius is notorious for.


​get a thinkware 750 if you want a full featured camera that doesn't affect dab. I've tried loads of cameras from blackvue, winycam but thry all affect dab
