I purchased this after my last front dash camera was fried from the heat. I've been using it for about a month and a half now and so far it has exceeded my expectations. It has a wide view, it does well in the heat so far (although I do still take it down out of the sun when I'm not using it), the suction cup on it hasn't broken which I seem to have bad luck with usually, the video itself is fantastic quality, I also really liked that I was able to purchase Geek Squad protection for it since the area I live in gets really hot and humid and tends to harm electronics after so much time and use. This is so far the best dash camera I've purchased out of the 3 kinds I've tried so far. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a cheaper, reliable dash cam.

I purchased this on the recommendation from salesperson. It works well and records a good picture. If you want to keep the power chord out of your view and run on the battery, make sure your trip is less than 30 minutes, very short battery time. The salesperson told me that hers runs for a week on an 8 gb memory card, I bought a 32gb card. I drive for a living and spend about 6 hrs a night on the road, 32gb will not last for this time it will overwrite at about 5hrs. at a record rate of 720, if you up the rate to its best quality picture you will get about 3 hrs on a 32gb card before it starts to overwrites

Nice dash cam
Posted by: Bill from: on
For what I wanted this little dash cam does very good. I didnt want GPS as it logs your speed. (And we dont want that do we, lol) has great picture quality (can read license plates with no problems), has good FOV. Easy to set up and no problems so far. Would recommend to my friends!

This little cheap camera, does the job as good, if not better than the more expensive dashcams on the market.

GREAT PRODUCT FOR THE PRICE
Posted by: VandoP from: on
I accidently damaged the first uniden dash cam and went out and re-bought the same product. I THINK THAT SAYS ALOT ABOUT THE PRODUCT. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE UNIDEN DC1

Good for daytime
Posted by: LASI from: on
Night vision is not good as expected. However, I like the size of the camera. It doesn't cover my vision.

Suitable for basic coverage. Some file errors.

For context, I purchased this when it was discounted for Black Friday. My review score would be lower if I had paid full price. I would not recommend this at full price.
I've wanted a dash cam for a long time but didn't feel like investing a ton. When I saw this discounted for holiday sales I saw my chance to try one out without much investment.
The quality isn't great. Even on a large screen, you can't pause a video and reliably read a license plate of a car that was to the left or right of you. You can read a plate of a car directly in front of you at a stop light and that's about it. So you can only depend on this camera for a basic overview of a road situation. You aren't going to be referring to the video file you when you get home and getting the license plate off of a car that was any distance away, or not perfectly in front of the camera.
I have yet to try it at night, but judging by how weak the infrared LEDs look when I turn them on, I'm not expecting much. Again, it will be enough to have a record of a major incident on the road, but you won't be picking small details out of your video file.
In the couple of times I have used it, I have already had lost/damaged files for no clear reason. The very first day I used it, I wasn't but a few minutes into a drive before I caught someone making a dangerous move on the road. I was already happy with my purchase because I was looking forward to getting home and having it on video. The first 10 minute file of my trip was inexplicably missing from the SD card. I triple checked that the blue LED was flashing while I was in the car, meaning that it was recording. The camera was definitely filming because I clicked on the next file that started in the middle of my trip. But the first one was just gone.
I just came home from using the camera today. I had 4 files on my SD card, meaning my recording time was between 30 and 40 minutes. The first couple of files worked fine. I clicked on file 3 and it doesn't play. I removed the SD card from the camera and put it directly into my computer and still can't get it to play. 8 minutes of footage is lost and if I had been in an accident at that moment I would apparently not have any proof.
I have tried more than one SD card. The first time I had a missing file, that was with the SD card that came included with the camera. I had since switched to a larger 32GB card, still Class 10 and suitable for use in this camera. And that 32GB card is where I got this second file that won't play. So it's not just that I have one bad SD card. I have all the settings adjusted correctly and it's not that I'm mistakenly overwriting the files or anything like that.
Overall I am somewhat satisfied with this as an introduction to what it's like to use a dash cam. It's pretty disappointing that it seems like it will be a matter of luck which files save successfully and which ones will get lost. I am going to set the file size to 3 minutes instead, to see if maybe recording in the maximum 10 minute chunks is somehow just too much data for the camera to manage when it has to start a new file and save the last one.
If anything, this has confirmed for me that I do enjoy having the camera for safety and will maybe get a better one. If this one would stop dropping files, I'd be relatively happy with it. But losing footage is not acceptable when the entire point of this thing is to have proof of an incident when you need it.
If you can afford a better one, get it. You'll regret having an inexpensive camera like this when it really counts and you're trying to retrieve footage of something that happened on the road. You'll be lucky if the file is saved, and if it is you still might not be able to read plate numbers.

Good Quality - Low Capacity
Posted by: ETGuy from: North Wales, PA on
Small size. Doesn't obstruct windshield. Good quality video. Doesn't have long storage, even with 32gb sd card.

Good to go

Once you read the book and get it set up....all you have to do is drive....it comes on automatically and records all by its self....now this model is not 200.00 or more bucks so it has its limits....but if you get hit or need to save something just hit the save to file button and it will not erase it on the re-record loop....I wish it could hold a bigger Memory stick I have a 32 gig in it now...and you cant set it to record at night unless you either wire it straight in or leave your key on....n as you know that is not wise...I wanted it to record like repair shops and stuff and leave it on when I go in to the store to see who is jackin with ma ride ya feel me....? but as a cheaper unit goes it records what it sees...
