Motorola MDC10W HD Wifi Dash Cam £39.00 at Tesco direct (Free Click+Collect) And Amazon (Delivered free)

Found 9th Mar
Was looking for dash cam and found this. Seems ok deal. Next best price £49.00 at 'Look Again' and £49.99 at Argos and Wickes. Amazon seems to match most prices but google shopping doesn't bring up amazon.

Plus another £10 for 32gb memory card I guess.

Not many reviews but looks good(ish) as Motorola, especially for the price. Though tech support uses binatone name, is it just licence from Motorola? Your comments are welcome.

There are some reviews on Amazon but they're all from people who got given one free on the Vine thing...... so I take most of those reviews with a big pinch of salt.

Yes Binatone have licenced the use of Motorola brand name for baby monitors, dash cams and other items. i suspect it's nothing to do with Motorola whatsoever, other than the name badge.

Only 720p?

Reviews state that low light performance is bad and the app's not up to much either.

Not voting either way because it might be a good price for this particular unit, but there are definitely better dashcams for the money.
So from the picture, it's for selfies while driving.
Anybody recommend a decent one? Missus giving me earache about getting one but it seems to be a minefield just like the action cameras

For under £50 the Yi dashcam, often on offer at £30 gets very good reviews, I use the Viofo A119 v2 which is a much more discrete hidden design, costs about £75 to 85

I spent ages looking a few months back, I really wanted something that was as discrete as possible so went for the Viofo as it hides quite nicely and is a wedge shape so blends in nicely. I didn't want something on a sucker cup dangling, the Viofo i got hides away really nicely.

Is that the Viofo A119? GPS or non-GPS? V1 or V2? The Q and A comments on Amazon reviews seem favourable but also slightly bewildering.
The YI Dashcam is superb for the money ...I use one every day in my work van ...cannot fault it for around the 30 quid Mark

I have the A119 GPS version 2 - that's in the LINK , the GPS is a small optional block that slides onto the dashcam and well worth the £10 extra cost in my mind (it records your route and approx speed etc)
- the version v1 has issues with the optional GPS module so should be avoided the v2 has a more reliable GPS module connector. Then they brought out the A119S which has a Sony camera module which has better night time images but doesn't do 4K like the A119V2 does and they've literally just brought out a 119 Pro which I know nothing about.

It's a bewildering array of similar named products.... from my research, I concluded best value for me was A119 version 2 with GPS for just under £80. I am pleased with results and the VIofo support seems good.

Personally, I don't understand why more dash-cam manufacturers don't mimic the "Blackvue" design.

Tucked up behind the rear view mirror which is both out of sight to those inside and outside of the car.

This mounting location also allows for discreet cable management for a more professional looking installation.

In addition to some windscreen mounted dash-cams hindering the driver's view of the road ahead, there is nowt uglier than a camera stuck smack-bang in the centre of the windscreen with cables hanging down.

Admittedly, "Blackvue" dash-cams are a lot more expensive and don't have a LCD display, but who needs and extra screen anyway?

There's enough going on in the modern motor vehicle, so additional LCD displays only add to the distractions IMHO.

Another thing to note is that the "Blackvue" dash-cams are just "Fit 'n' Forget" in that once the WiFi app is used for initial setup/alignment, you need never go back to the camera unless there is an incident.

My "Blackvue DR500-GW HD" which is a 1080p WiFi camera has been installed since July 2013 (nearly 5 years) and I'd have expected affordable dash-cams to be at least 4K by now

Anyhow, the "DR500GW" is still working fine for now (touch wood) and I'll personally await a reasonably priced 4K dash-cam to hit the market before upgrading (they are available, bur pretty expensive).

The other thing I've always wondered is why have all the electronics in the dash-cam itself?

Surely, it would be better to have a well specced, high capacity "recorder-box" behind the dash, in the boot or hidden elsewhere, where camera or even several cameras could be plugged in?

This would allow for higher quality/small-sized cameras I would have thought. Probably cost a lot more though and as a lot of folk don't actually buy their cars anymore and lease instead, there probably isn't the mass market for such a thing, which is a shame.

Yes I'm amazed there are some decent tiny camera modules that plug into a box with the actual brains and SD card... no need to really have an LCD on the camera itself. Of course it won't be long before they're built into cars as standard, just like satnavs now are. Many cars even had the cameras for lane detection built into the windscreen so probably a fairly simple thing to add recording capabilties. I bet in 5 to 10 years time (or less) this will be standard in cars.
The Viofo a119 I mentioned blends in quite well on some cars and does 4K, my Golf has a black section where the rearview mirror fits and this cam sits nicely next to that and is pretty much out of sight and the wire is hidden away from view.

If you are going for a dashcam, it is better to get a dual camera set-up as accidents from the back are just as risky as the front. They are almost the same price too, so its a no brainer. Must haves are:
- micro sd card
- G-sensor
- working date and time stamp
- rear / dual camera
Other features are nice to have, especially wifi. GPS is not really needed (you have your phone!) and if you use certain apps it becomes a security risk like with bikes. The better the lens the batter, having a battery/capacitor back up is helpful as is the ability to take photos (keeps it in one place) but you can use your phone. Unless built in, having multiple GPS receivers in a car from satnav/phone/dash cam is a little OTT.

There are a lot of clones and most of the clones work better than the originals.
