Most electronics you buy nowadays are Chinese. Your point is..?

Seems pretty good
Any ideas how you update the speed camera alerts and if they are any good?

So free updates? Are they accurate and do they include mobile sites?

Cheers

I don't know that. All I know are that these dashcams are updated through Garmin propriatery software.
Thanks for the heads up on this OP. Always liked Garmin products and it get’s good reviews. Submitted a price match with John Lewis since may as well have the two year guarantee.

122 degree viewing angle is pretty narrow
Purchase discount gift vouchers through Zeek and go through Quidco (Zeek and Halfords)for a few further few quid off.

Seem to remember the guy that runs US dash cams saying anything from 120 to 150 is preferable because it eliminates the fish eye effect.

Ah fair enough, I'm not an expert on them.
Though I bought a 170 degree one (Aukey from Amazon) and haven't noticed any distortion on the playback, but I wasn't looking for it to be honest. It sees both sides of the windscreen, the end of my bonnet so I'm happy enough.

You get a 30 day trial of alerts etc. I assume that it stays on the device but just doesn’t update - I’ve not reached 30 days yet...
Same price on Amazon..
I had one of these but ended up returning it. The lane keep assist works but I never paid any attention to it, the speed camera notifications are also pretty good although for me it seemed to always be beeping to warn about potential mobile speed cameras.

My only complaint and the reason I returned it, is that it's not very discreet. The mount, being adhesive and magnetic, means it can be stuck pretty much anywhere but then the big orange ring on the camera stands out. I wanted something I could leave in the car and forget about.
Reviews are not encouraging in regards to the alerts; most people seem to turn them off.

The a119 is a solid discreet camera. I run one in my care and the wife's

Just stick to the speed limit and you won't need to ask.

Helpful. Or just buy a dash cam without speed alerts if you aren't going to need them?

I put some black tape on mine to hide the bronze coloured ring and is more stealth like.

Nice of them to do it! Used it many times but they are clamping down on it.

I’m lucky my local store can’t do maths so 10% is like 20% lol.
