Added 3 videos from this camera all 3 minutes long.
One at night, one with speaking so can listen to internal microphone and one driving very slowly with cars on the opposite side to see the number plates. Was recorded in above 1080p but Youtube has downgraded them to 1080p sorry.

I have one of these, and with a simple "hack", you can massively upgrade the quality of the recorded footage by removing reflections from the dashboard:

33537222-oWMCN.jpg

33537222-WE9Em.jpg
Step 1 - Purchase 37mm to 49mm Step Up Ring (around £2 on eBay)
Step 2 - Purchase 49mm Polarising Filter (around £10 on eBay)
Step 3 - Attach ring to the dashcam
Step 4 - Screw filter on to ring

Win!

The only caveat with this dashcam is that it's really poor in really low light.

Also, make sure to ONLY use Micro SD cards that are built specifically for "recording equipment". SanDisk call these as "Endurance" cards.

I hope you all find this tip useful!

Excellent..

Your cashback should be paid out very soon then if its been 4 weeks.
Great price and excellent value for money. I paid £12 more a few months back and was happy at that price.


+ Great app so you can view on your phone
+ Very clear video
+ 60fps as well
+ Cable supplied is good length

- night time isn't the best but ok

I use this as a rear camera and it's brill.

Great find OP!
This is a decent camera and it's not really worth paying more for the top end ones. Been using ours for 3 months now and it's really good, impressed with night time picture quality. Comes with enough cable to tuck in around the edge of your wind screen , making a neat job. What we did buy however was a 'suction cup mount' as didn't fancy it being glued to the screen. If you're prepared to wait a week or two for delivery from China they are around a pound on EBay.
This is a very good Dash Cam and the App is also good.
Whats the difference on the models as i would prefer a black one than grey
Any links for a decent and cheap suction cup?
Are both black and grey models the same? As the price alters
bought one, shame its grey it makes it stand out a bit

You can get some black vinyl sticker and cover the camera with it
If this is the same one I have, it has been mostly great. However, when we had good sunny weather last weekend, it kinda freaked out for no apparent reason. It rebooted itself, then said the card needed to be formatted, and ended up with a screwy display with loads of red lines flickering on the screen.

It might have been because the cam was sat in direct sunlight (it felt pretty hot when I removed it from the mount), but I don't know for certain what the cause was.

It has been fine since then though, but I as immediately worried that it was on its way out.
Don't think this comes with Wi-Fi unlike the other model which is a few quid more expensive.
I have mine mounted with one of these on the rearview mirror support, I had it for a G1WH camera originally, but this works with it just fine, there are shorter mirror mounts but they are not quite as adaptable as this longer design ebay.co.uk/itm…2r~.

What's the difference between this and the one usually reduced to £31.99? Had a quick look at them couldn't see any difference?

Someone has already answered this!
What are the main benefits/uses of these - other than providing evidence for an insurance claim?

No. That's the 130 degree model. The one in this deal is 165 degree angle.

No. That's the 130 degree model. The one in this deal is 165 degree angle.


you are right. that one is even worse I presume.

it's a good cam in normal circumstances, but nighttime footage is unacceptable.
trailed it for 3 weeks and sent back for a refund.

No, a half decent 32gb card would cost you half the cost of this product. Enables you to choose your own, and I would recommend this one - amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

This records at 30fps the other one 60fps!


Mine records 1920*1080p at 60fps

The one in this £28.39 deal is the 60fps model.
The 30fps is £24.99.

I've a feeling they are trying to sell these quickly because the new wedge shaped stealthy model was launched yesterday and should be in the UK in a few weeks.

Was looking for this one, but went for YI 2.7k camera to replace my useless Garmin dash cam.
Ordered!
To clarify for people asking: the black and grey are *not* different colours of the same models, which is why one is cheaper. The grey/more expensive one has a wider field of view and can do higher resolution/frame rate.
