Works out at £74.99 if you have NUS Extra discount.
I've got one of these. They are good, but I'm not sold on the resolution. It's still pretty hard to make out a number plate if unless they are pretty close.
is this very discreet? last thing you want is someone smashing car window.

No.You will have to take it off every time you park your car unless you want to risk a break in
i have one of these and i love it, only thing is it doesn't have motion detection,
Aldi's have a special buy for car dashcam this coming Sunday 8th for £29.99 with 3yrs warranty if anyone's interested.
Specs seem OK for the price, if it's poor, easy enough to get a refund
What's the WIFI for? downloading clips off it?

Seems good. You should put it up as a deal.
I've owned one of these for a couple of years. No problem with size and like the presence it has. I leave it in and never had any problems. Used it to send footage to a haulage firm when I was ran off the motorway by one of their drivers. Did the job nicely.
I have the first version and it's a very good dash cam (spent ages reading reviews before I went ahead with the only negatives being the sound quality, but who needs top HIFI sound quality, the silver ring shows a bit much, but this is soon sorted with black marker or electricians tape and also it looses it's time and date, but for me it is only after being unplugged for more than 2 weeks and picks it up again as soon as it connects to your mobile to sync with that.
What's the different between this and the argos one? The argos one seems to also come with a better suction cup.
I bought from Argos same Just 16gb but 2016 model and got battery I record with internal battery for over 35 min
Ordered, thanks op!

Argos 16GB suction mount
Amazon (this deal) 32GB adhesive mount
Argos is £69.99 suction cup better deal I think as records in a loop so sd card size irrelevant

Does the Argos one have a battery or a capacitor?

I have Argos one and it has battery as I can see from top right on the screen when is not power in
I think all 2016 model is coming with internal battery which is Argos one is 2016 model it says on the box 2016 check before you pick up
I just bought the one from argos and it does say 2016 on the box. Of course I received a returned item from argos as usual with finger prints and marks all over the item.
You guys done good! My one from Argos is 2015

Yeah, it does; also says v. 1.0. And on little white square sticker at bottom right on the back, also says 2015 at the top of that.

Ah.. mine has v1.1 and 03.2016 date on the white sticker. Is there actually a difference between the 2016 model and the one you have? If so you can take it back and ask for a 2016 one.
Hey guys just got mine through the post. A bit confused as the white sticker on right side says 03.2016 (with Russian writing) and bottom left corner v1.0! What have the rest of you guys got?

Main difference is reserve power. Earlier models use a capacitor, that only holds date / time for a few days. 2016 models have changed the capacitor for a battery, so hold data much longer.

Nearest Argos with stock is nearly 30 miles away, and might also be 2015. ( 5 stores nearer, but none with stock).
Might also be 2015 - Argos never seem keen to check details of their stock for you.

I was looking to buy one yesterday and local stores had it down to 'order now, collect in 5 days'. I then looked on the website again today and they are in stock to collect immediately. It may be worth ringing around stores.

v2 is just the firmware version. Take a look at the settings on your dashcam to see what firmware verision it is. Mine is v2.1 straight out of the box.

Oh ok, so what does the v1.0 or v1.1 mean?
Expired. Still amazed manufacturers aren't offering these built into rear view mirror as a standard option.

Sounds more a bit rate issue than a resolution problem. Also 30fps is pretty low, 60 would be a lot better.
I picked 2 up from Argos yesterday and both say v1.1 2016 on the box
