Can you tell me the code please


Just below the item there's a link for promotional code.

I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago and its worth every penny.

I purchased a longer USB power cable (3 metres is what I needed) and a USB card (32GB) and installed in 10 minutes. I also bought some of these to manage the cable (amazon.co.uk/gp/…s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1).


I dont need to do anything, camera now takes care of itself and the included app and wifi connection make it really easy to look back over video. image quality is also good.


Bargain at £30,

ordered thanks

trying to find info online anyone know if Esure would offer a discount on my insurance if I have a cam?

Had a hit and run against my car last Thursday when it was parked locally - my car was parked and now have a £1,500 - £2,000 repair bill which I have had to make an insurance claim for, plus 5 years of declaring the claim.

I now wish I had a dashcam installed as it would have picked up the car that hit me as it drove off.

I have ordered one of these - now need to find someone who can permanently wire this in locally as I don't like seeing cables.

This one doesn't seem to have that function, unless you wired it into permanently on power supply, and to be honest, (as a dashcam owner) many of these collisions would'nt be picked up by one anyway in typical car park situations

Top cameras btw. Just wish they weren't silver.

Hello all,

Has anyone used these and tested the quality? Family bought me a cheap camera and just tried it yesterday and the quality is horrendus. I am not sure if its a cheap knock off camera, or the SD card has the wrong type of memory or is a rubbish SD card which is causing the issue.

The link to the device is below. Where is says 100% reliable, makes me think its a knock off.
Easylife 5740

Posted an image below taken from the device. I know recording still images is different than moving, but the quality is barely better moving. That picture if of a 1080p tv monitor displaying a webpage, as you can see the text is unreadable.

On the screen in 'high quality' mode it says 1080p, but looking at the files they are only in 720p
Looking at the properties data rate is 10296kbps, total bitrate 10552kbps, 30fps, audio 256kbps.
The audio is also shocking. When there is no noise, there is a lot of background noise?
The SD i am using is a Toshiba 32GB m302-EA Exceria. UHS Speed 3 and Class 10.
Says HC I UHS-I Read 90 MB/s on the front. So device or memory card fault?

YI 2.7 should do a much better job as picture quality is quite impressive. In bright sunlight a bit washed out, but this is probably true for most dash and non dash cameras!

Do let us know how you get on.

I would be surprised if they amend your current (active) policy and give you a dsicount, but any future policies could be cheaper at renewal, provided this dashcam is on their list of approved devices (which I think it should be, given the good quality of the device).

Thanks OP. Just purchased this over the weekend for 41.99.
Cancel it now and reordered
One quick question .... over the weekend I purchased this camera (41£) and a thermometer ( 15£) so I've qualified for free delivery over 20£, now I cancelled camera but not the thermometer too...now I have one delivery for thermometer and another one for this dashcam.
My question is..now I will be charged for thermometers delivery????
Thank you

Yes there doesn't appear to be a battery built-in. If left to run continually your vehicle battery will be drained.

They all only have battery power to enable shutdown and playing a shoirt video back.

I think if you get a hardwire kit with a low voltage detection threshold set and plug it into a hot fuse it will switch off before it allows the battery to drain - also it should have the G sensor so it will only switch on when it detects motion - not received it to try it yet but that's the way I believe it can be set up

I would post some footage of my ýi cam but unsure how.

I would be careful here if you forgot to turn it on one day or it doesn't work when you are unlucky and have an accident it may means issues with the validity of the policy

If worried about battery drainage I suggest you insert a power bank between the unit and the car charger, it'll charge when the car is powered and power the unit when not

Smart Dash Camera supports 1920*1080p at 60fps

won't find many that do at this price unless they're cheap and nasty interpolated images

Ordered for my dad for Christmas, thanks OP

Hot... thanks

Does this use class 10 SDHC cards or older SD cards?

Is it worth buying this dashcam or are there any recommendations? Having had a hit and run experience last week, I want something I can hard wire into my car and have a decent chance of capturing a number plate

I have a relatively old G1WH at each end, cheap and effectiv e but not wired in for 24hr use. "Techmoan" on Youtube has good recommendations, worth looking at.

I would not ask my insurance for discount as that one day it doesn't work and they want a copy of the accident etc and you can't produce it might invalidate your insurance. I have a house alarm but don't tell my insurance for similar reasons plus once when getting a quote I put house does have an alarm and it didn't make any difference on price.

coming up as £29.99 for me - theres a £12 off voucher as well as a 25% discount - if you select both it seems to just use the £12 voucher

I've ordered this but not sure whether to cancel and go for the Aldi one which has been listed?
Oh, no night vision on the Aldi one. I'll stick with this. Thanks OP.

If it were a noted security requirement in the policy they would also note the result of it being non functional, I’d expect a higher excess rather than policy invalidation. Despite the horror stories I’ve never known that happen.

House alarms are usually a moot point unless it’s certified, installed by a qualified installer, serviced annually and monitored. If not, it’s just a noise maker that people ignore.
