Why should I buy this dash cam?
The Maplin M220 dash cam is an excellent choice for recording events on the road in 720p HD quality to help reduce insurance quotes and assist with making a claim. With sufficient lighting, you’ll also get great quality recordings when driving at night. You can watch recordings back on the 2.3 inch built-in screen to review any events that have happened. The built-in G-sensor will allow the dash cam to record any impacts or sudden course changes so that the event is protected on the memory card. The G-sensor’s parking mode will allow the dash cam to record events even when the vehicle is empty with the built-in vibration sensor. A date and time stamp is also included on the recording to prevent any dispute.

How do I use this dash cam?
The dash cam uses a class 10 micro SD card, between 2GB and 32GB (not included), to record any event on the road. A 32GB memory card will give you approximately three hours recording time. When the memory card becomes full, an auto loop function will allow the dash cam to begin recording over existing video files in chronological order. Once the memory card is installed, the dash cam can be suction mounted directly onto the windscreen and is powered by a built-in battery or the in-car power supply. The dash cam will then automatically turn on and start recording when the engine is started.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good little camera Very good easy installation play back quality on PC is excellent. Can't understand review stating it does not automatically wipe files down as mine seems to ok easy to install and the windscreen suction pad actually holds it firm which makes a pleasant change with such products good basic recording features just leave it running and it does the job

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic but good Had this as a Christmas pressie and have fitted it already. Doesn't have WiFi or other 1080p definition but is still HD and is just lovely and simple. The clips loop well and play on the PC. You only want to see it work when you have an incident you need to look at.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great budget camera Bought this yesterday as other retailer had sold out of identical nextbase camera. Quick and easy to install and foolproof to use. Set up in literally 5 minutes. Ignore other reviews on here, I bought a class 10 ultra high speed memory card on sale at a popular high street pharmacy ;-) and have had no problems having to format or file corruption. 10/10. Thanks Maplin!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be improved quite a bit I bought this unit about four weeks ago, and although it seems to preform well enough, and is easy to programme, I was disappointed to find that when the recording time was up a panel came on the screen telling me that the Disk was full. I then had to remove the camera from it's mount and manually Format the card (which cleaned everything off it) and replace it for another three hours run.(or change the card with a new one) not easy on a French motorway in the dark. My windscreen had been smashed by a large rock, and I wanted the shot for the insurance company. According to the description (obviously incorrect) the unit is supposed to be on a loop where it will start to record over previous recordings once the disk was full, so the whole thing should be automatic. Also, if you download the recording of the whole disk on to the computer, it is in seperate 5 minute thumbnail clips, but the clips all have the same number, so if you find a clip with an event on it you wish to retain, you have to be very careful to make sure you have the right clip before pressing Save. If you do have an 'event' and want to be able to recover the right clip later, make sure that you make a careful note of the time of the event when it happens (if you can be that cool under stress ) as the clips are time related. (you have to open one first to see the time imprint). I bought this one as a 'starter' but I think I will soon buy a better one now that I have had some experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unobtrusive save you time & money get a better model. Returning mine as it will record perfectly but on playback the first 20 files are fine, all the others have corrupted files and unplayable. Even after transfering to a PC still wont play. Spend a little but more and get a better model

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Dashcam It does everything i expect and more. It's one of those products that you hope you won't need but it's there when you do. The small size means that it fits unobtrusively behind the rear view mirror without obscuring the windscreen. Inexpensive price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from would not work Purchased online at offer price. Plugged in , worked initially for a few seconds then went blank. Noticed if power lead was wriggled around ,power would restore. Took kit to my local Maplin store, they tested it on the bench and supplied a replacement. Returned home and plugged in again, sadly the 2nd unit powered up o.k.but the screen remained backlit but nothing else. Tried a reset , tried re-installing but to no avail. Returned to the store , unit tested and fault confirmed. After discussions with the store manager, I opted for a more expensive Nextbase 212 unit. I am pleased to say this unit is amazing , particularly the playback quality on my desktop and the sound quality. The store manager assured me that they had had no issues with other Maplin M220 units , so I guess I was just unlucky. Have to say that the customer care at the Milton Keynes store is first class.

What do the symbols on the screen mean? There is nothing in the manual to help, nor have you answered this question successfully previously so for example the 0 with a + - by it and the image above that one

Asked by: hancock444
Unfortunately we do not have this information, but we will request a unit from stock and update you shortly.

with the loop recording, does it save every recording or does it only save when the record button is pressed to stop it?

Asked by: luke
On loop it only saves when the record button is pressed or the G sensor is activated if set up.

Do you answer any questions you are asked about how this thing actually works?  How can I 1.  Have it set to loop record and not constantly tell me the card is full.  And 2. How can I view recording when out in my car, just after an incident?

Asked by: Oddy
The unit loop records if set to do so in the menu. If the unit is saying card full then it is likely full of "locked" recordings. These occur when the device detects an increase in G forces (like in the event of an accident), however it will also lock a recording if you hit a pothole or bump so you may want to disable the G sensor. You can playback footage on the device whilst it is still connected to the vehicles power, but it cannot be operated outside of the vehicle. It can be taken to a PC or Laptop and footage copied or downloaded, or you can remove the memory card and take it to a PC or Laptop to view/copy recordings.

How does this camera fix in the car ?

My question is: Is the AV output from the camera functional, or is it just a hole ? If it does work, how do I access it ? The MENU allows setting to PAL or NTSC.

Asked by: Andrew
Although this item has an AV port it is unused this will not work.
