  • good entry level unit

    i bought recorder prior to reading all the reviews - however for me the unit has worked well after a little time setting up as the instructions appear to have been translated to english i carried out battery instructions initial charging etc and i get about an hours use without charger connected - as for detail when vehicle in front is stationary license plate can be read and events are captured which is why i bought it extra evidence for that just in case moment / accident. TV playback a little too big for quality but is ok on laptop now i have used it a few times its an easy unit to operate and the window attachment hasn't fallen off like my sat nav one used to - if it does fail on me will update feedback All in all good value for money

  • After a week of purchase, I have to warn anyone not to buy one of these, the unit was totally unreliable---,i.e.it would switch itself off for no reason, and I had to keep resetting it after only a few moments of recording time, yesterday the unit 'froze', and would not function at all even when pressing the reset. I've taken it back to the shop at Brislington, Bristol, this morning and would like to compliment the staff for their' 'no quibble', polite and helpful manner. A total refund was given, The staff at Brislington, I'd mark, 10/10.. the camera, I have to give 0/10---A complete waste of time and money,--- as far as I'm concerned.

  • I suppose it's a bit early to judge fully yet, as I only received it 21st--yesterday-- but I was dubious, having read the poor reviews, and seeing this was a "B" rated product--"(reduced price).... The 1st impressions are good except there were no instructions in the (previously opened box). My neighbour has one of these so he kindly talked me through, and lent me his instruction leaflet. The unit is a doddle to install and the recordings on the 1st journeys, are of good quality, for the low cost of the unit it seems god-v.f.m.. As I said, it's early days , but will give it a while, and report back soon.. Happy with it for now?

  • Bought this unit 10th May 2013. For what is supposed to be a HD device, its rubbish.To describe the saved video image as HD is inappropriate. A car number plate directly in front of us is illegible. Almost as if a lens protector was still fitted. But No. Took it back to Maplin. The boys in Gloucester were great. Exchanged it for a slightly more expensive camera. I Paid the difference.

  • Further to my earlier review regarding emissions. Each cable must be tightly wound through the ferrite rings as close to the unit end of the cable as practical, then secured in place by a few turns of insulating tape.

  • My unit produced interference affecting my in-car DAB radio, it also blotted out my DAB radio in my lounge when the unit was connected to my TV to review journeys. I solved both these problems by looping the power cable 4 times through two ferrite rings (Maplin Code QT26D). This was repeated for the AV cable and both my DAB radios now operate without any signs of interference. This problem is a classic case of emissions being radiated by the cables and is covered by CE testing standards. As the unit is CE marked so I wonder which standards it complies with ? These ferrite filters are commonly found in the form of small (25mm) blocks fitted to connecting leads on electronic equipment to control conducted and radiated electromagnetic emissions.

  • Well I bought this HD one, I have read the reviews but only after I bought it, so far like I've seen on YouTube, but as one said as long as you can see enough and it's good enough then you can't expect too much for the price in all honesty, it just does enough. Some said it burnt out well I'll tell you if it does, well mines days old only today have I left it on, all the time so we will see, I will update for good or bad, as if like me your only interested if it works and if it don't run your vehicle battery out. My vehicle is new, Ford Kuga diesel so a big lump. Lets see.

  • Only ocasional files it creates from a journey are in a valid format, twice now it has decided to ignore me trying to turn it off and it locks so i have to wait for it to run out of battery

  • The first one died within a few days. Its replacement works, but while the image is technically HD 720, the poor physical optics make the final image pretty rubbish. Don't expect to be able to read the registration plates of vehicles coming towards you, which must be a key issue if you are planning to use this output as evidence in any insurance claim. My cheap phone camera gives a better image. OK it's cheap, but also nasty. It's going back for a refund

  • I bought the journey recorder on the 15thNov. and from the start the buttons were unresponsive. I switched it on, on the 19th. and couldn't switch it off again, the buttons stopped working altogether.
