Why should I buy this dash cam?
Having a dash cam installed in your vehicle is almost essential nowadays as a back-up for evidence if an accident occurs. This Cobra CDR855 Dash Cam will help reduce insurance quotes and provide hard evidence when making a claim. Capturing 1080p full HD video footage with the extra wide 160-degree viewing angle, every detail will be recorded and nothing will be missed. With the Bluetooth enabled GPS the exact location and time will be embedded into the video recordings, free PC software allows you to view video along with location and G-sensor information. The built-in G-sensor picks up and records any sudden change of course or impact and saves any event onto the memory card in the event of a crash. This dash cam is very simple to use and has an easy on the eye display, which is great if you’ve never owned or used a dash cam before.

How can I view footage from the dash cam?
To playback your recordings on the spot, instant replay is available on the 2.0-inch LCD screen, which lets you clarify responsibility straight away. A mini HDMI slot is located on the side of the dash cam so you can connect directly to your HDTV or computer via an HDMI cable (not included) and watch your HD footage of the big screen. If you wish to view and save your recordings onto your PC or laptop, simply plug the microSD card into your memory card slot, using a microSD card adapter (not included) if necessary. This will also allow you to send evidence to your insurance company.

How do I store footage from the dash cam?
The Cobra CDR855 Dash Cam records directly onto the 8GB microSD card which comes included. Install the memory card into the microSD slot on the unit. This dash cam is able to support microSD cards up to 32GB to record up to four and a half hours of footage. With the continuous loop recording feature, you can record endlessly onto your microSD card and never need to manually erase recordings from the dash cam.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best unit yet compare to other makes out there When I first hook it up in my semi, I was surprised at how well it pick up at night. Little confusing on how to set different controls at first, (without a manual ). Date and time was very hard to get sat, which I never got completed before it closed the screen. But over all, I think this is one of the better dash cams I've had. This is my 5th different unit. I'm trying out different makes on performances and night vision. Cobra needs to come out with a ture altervilot night vision were it will record and pick up on the night hi ways. I've been a cobra man ( C.B. Radio's, etc.) since 1972. So far in my opinion, you just can't bet a cobra!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent... I Love It Bought CDR 855BT at truckstop with frequent fueler points. Simple set up right out of the box. Crystal clear image on playback (on computer). Easy transfer from unit to computer. Excellent 160° wide view. I've discovered that if I plug it into a USB wall adapter in my house, I can use it to monitor my dogs activity when I'm not home. Or I can use it as an indoor security camera. It comes with a cord long enough to place the camera where it's convenient to monitor the inside of my home. It can be set for 3, 5, or 10 minute loop recording, which I find to be a nice feature. Overall, I'm loving this dash cam, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice Dash Cam....big let down I bought this dash cam 10 months ago. I was so impressed that I bought another one for my other vehicle. When my wife bought a car, she got one as well. Hers was only seven months old when the switch stuck (couldn't switch off or on). Cobra was nice enough to replace it. Now the original dash cam I bought won't stay on past the start up screen, or sometimes won't come on at all. Sending it back today, as it is less than a year old. I'm very concerned about the quality of this camera, and worried about the future of the one I have remaining that works, as well as the wives replacement unit. These cameras have not been abused in anyway. I really like the features, but they just aren't durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! I ha another make, which wasn't any good and I threw it out. I've had a number of Cobra products over the decades, same as the other make, but this works the way it is advertised, plus, the 160 degree view (I think the largest) is a huge plus. I have it on all the time because you never know when you're going to meet a crazy driver, and since I'm in sales, I drive all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps going into park mode while driving Great product. Picture quality is fantastic. Easy to setup right out of the box. I would give more stars but my unit keeps beeping to tell me it is going into park mode while I am driving, not just at stop signs, but actually when I am driving down freeway etc. You have to reach up to unit and answer yes to question weather or not to keep recording.I have experience missing footing now I know why. Other than that it is a great product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Updated still freezes up~ circles appear on screen and video Truck driver. Should have known better,but thought I'd give cobra products a try again. I go back to when Cobra was trying to compete with escort radar detectors. Cobra always lost. Waste of my money. Shopping for a different cam.

please can this device (A36WQ) record when the car is static or parked someone said it does in PARKING MODE

Asked by: felixoooo
This has a parking mode which detects motion for the remaining time on the battery and records it.

How does the iRadar community alerts work? Does it rely on other drivers putting in information, or does it self seek the radar from red light cameras and police speed traps.

Asked by: Wackerone
For the dashcam, the iRadar alerts rely on other drivers using the iRadar detectors, which automatically upload alerts to the community when laser or radar signal. You would need to link the camera to your phone via bluetooth and have mobile internet for iRadar alerts to work. Full details on iRadar detectors and the community system can be found here;
