Bought two of these for eldest kids for Xmas pressie, great pieces of kit, not turned ADAS on in settings so can't comment on that function but video quality is great, ordered two suction mounts from here ebay.co.uk/itm…649 as didn't like the sticker mounts (they took 12 days to arrive from Hong Kong) ... Micro SD card is fussy though, need at least 100mb/s as we had 80mb/s and it wouldn't accept them as fast enough (ended up with Samsung EVO Plus 64gb 100mb/s cards which also were on offer on HUKD)

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.

Have to say YouTube has not done these videos much justice, better directly from the cam. Here's a screenshot from a video paused.

Adas on this is terrible but otherwise it’s a good system as long as your phone connects to it seemlessly with wifi. It’s not as discrete as other dash cams because the silver paint reflects more light. It’s possible to hard wire this into the car with an £8 kit

Undecided between this and Next base. The advantage of next base is the easy removal.Are the Yi easy to remove from screen.Or do you leave it on the screen 24/7.Just worried it might be stolen.

I honestly wouldn't touch NextBase, go with this or the Xiaomi or another brand that isn't Nextbase.

Just one q before I buy, waiting for this price since last drop I've missed. Are the number plates readable day/night?

Bought the suction type mount off ebay the same as you. Plenty of wire to tuck in across top of windscreen and down the side. Made a neat job of it. Camera gives a descent picture , even at night. Leave on the car most of the time , to remove I just unplug and remove the suction mount with the camera attached. Too fiddley to try and take off just the camera.

Yeah I think it's because it's above 1080p but below a standard 1440p so YouTube can't process it and downgrade it to 1080p
Here' a very good review from Techmoan. Camera is very good and at that price it's a no-brainer.

Don't touch nextbase. I bought the expensive 512G model for £140.
I hardwired it into the car. It frequently freezes/crashes, and after 8 months the battery failed causing it to go into a reboot loop. The batteries are not user-replaceable either because you cant buy them.
A friend also bought one (i tried to talk him out of it) - he bought the 412G model. Sure enough it suffers freezes/glitches and if you dont notice it - it can mean the vital moment of evidence is not captured.
Overpriced garbage - avoid them at all costs.

I also had 2 Mobius actioncams (front+rear) - they were fantastic cams... MUCH better than nextbase as they actually worked properly. However one got stolen, and i replaced it with one of these Yi DashCams. I am very very impressed by it, the WiFi is a good feature as you can trim the video and download it on the fly to your phone. The picture quality is superb too.

So yeah, Buy one of these DONT buy a Nextbase!

Ironically that was an example you just gave albeit a poor anecdotal one.
Mine arrived today.
Which suction mount have people bought ? I'm a bit confused which one to buy and from where ?
REMEMBER - These DO NOT come with any memory card , these will cost an extra £20 and make sure you get the RIGHT one or it won’t work.

I got a NextBase for christmas and it's a fantastic little thing. Like you say it's very easy to remove and I've hardwired the cable through the trim of the car so it's always out of site.

Personally I slide the camera off the bracket (which has it's own USB port so don't need to faff around with reconnecting cables) and put the camera in the glove box as it does look very tempting.

Got to say though, having one has made me a much better driver. I know that if I get in to a crash and the footage has me doing anything even slightly dodgy then it could ruin my claim so I drive much better as a result.

Hope that helped.

Sandisks ultra and above work perfectly and they cost less than 20£.
Look on amazon plenty good ones for less than 15£.

Would also recommend getting a micro usb or usb c card reader to use with your phone. The wifi copy option is very slow and you can only get chunks of 1minute30 sec at a time.
I bought one for around 5£ to keep in the car just in case.

it just unclips from the mount yes, i bought 3 of these just before xmas when they were on special for prime customers at about £29.

i have no experience with other dash cams but the android app works fine on my Sammy S8+, never freezes etc.

No long term experience of these so can't comment on longevity but the company itself has decent gear so shouldn't be a problem.

you need a high endurance card otherwise the card will fail prematurely due to the constant writing of videos to the card

amazon.co.uk/San…+sd

the dashcam has its own wifi - you select the dashcams wifi on your phone / tablet so you can watch & download the videos

You can buy a suction mount for it, rather than the included sticky mount. It's a generic fitting so should be easy enought o find.

It's micro USB connection, comes with a usb accessory adapter but you can buy the hard wired kit. I have mine plugged into my multimedia USB connection in glove box looks tidy.
Nxtbase failed on me. Been looking for a replacement
The code expired :((
I think u need to go to promotions and redeem the voucher.
Yes use the promotion code then its 29.99
Anyone has a link and instructions on how to hardwire this?
Will it turn on with the ignition if hardwired?
Also, what is the battery usage of these? Tend to forget mine plugged in so I'm worried about the car's battery life..
Nice bit of kit, I bought an extra one for the wife's car just after xmas. Think I paid £40.
WiFi and app work seamlessly.
just a note of caution

I downloaded the app from the qr code inside. There are videos on other users and under collision (should have known better) the first (and only video I watched) was a motorbike rider and pillion passenger overtaking the camera user and driving head on into a oncoming wagon. I'm guessing the video was from China.

NO FILTER and a bit unexpected but with hindsight.......

just saying
I want a front and back dash cam so I imagine that I need to buy 2 of these. I also would like a reversing camera - can I use the WiFi feature to send the rear camera feed to the phone on the dashboard?
