That confirms it then - this camera is illegal to use.
OP, if it's rubbish (and it appears this is) even free isn't a good price! IMHO.
Agreed. Had this dashcam last year and had to return it for this reason alone. I couldnt turn off the display screen which took about 4 inches of the rear view mirror so it became a hindrance.
Be aware that it is illegal to drive while the screen is on. It's not clear from the listing wether you can turn the screen off - I'd guess so, but does anyone know?
