Rated 5 out of 5 by from This item was very easy to install in a position around the rear view mirror and out of my view of the road ahead. I purchased the recorder so as to help in the event of an incident ahead of my vehicle I would be more in a position to defend or report about same incident. As reported in the press it is a "spy in the cab" and some insurance companies could insist on an instillation of such a spy. I found the reviewing interesting and also gave me a feedback about my own positioning on the road. As to the quality of this camera and its build I would recommend it all. Only one small gripe is that apart of folding down the screen to watch, how do i know its on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I agree with the comments from the other reviewer but would add one thing. I have tried this camera in two cars each equipped qith a SatNav. One built in to a Nissan Pathfinder and one Snooper in a motor caravan. In both cases, the satellite signal vanished when the camera was switched on. I tried making a simple faraday shield around the camera from foil to no avail. I now have a camera that is of no use to me. I cannot recommend this camera to any user of a SatNav.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Like the previous commenter, I also have problems with this item. When I plug it in, it records for a couple of seconds then shuts down. At first I thought it was the card, but different memory cards make no difference. I would think twice before buying this item, instead go for the A93LC. It's not fault free either, but at least it's cheaper.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfit for for purpose Purchased cam and have had the it for two months: will be taking it back for refund. It freezes, I can't turn it off; none of the buttons work when it freezes, it records when it feels like it, it switches on but doesn't record sometimes, I have to wait for the battery to run down so that it switches off, keeps telling me that SD card is full even it should record cyclicly. Totally unreliable and definately unfit for purpose!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Its great for the first few days then it stops coming on automatic. It also reduces gps signal, and is not great picture quality

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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
