    Amazing dash cam

    I can disprove other reviews immediately. The battery is not meant to be used stand alone. It’s meant to have just enough to save in case of loss of power during an accident. Or just save as you turn the car off. It clearly says that in large bold text in the manual. Second of all the image quality is incredible. It’s easy to use and the gps is super accurate with speed. Within 1mph normally, if not dead on. The save feature for the clips is 10 times better than any other dash cam I’ve ever used. You just hit the hazard button and boom it keeps recording, just locking the file so it doesn’t get overwritten. The sound quality is also very good. As far as the app is concerned, I haven’t tried any of that because I would not use that function. I just put the video in my computer if I need to or just play it back directly on the camera. Do not listen to these other reviews as they are untrue and clearly the user did not read the USER manual. I definitely recommend this camera. By the way I’m not just some customer... Certified auto tech, and car electronic guru. Been installing for almost 10 years.

    for my first dash cam it's ok. I have had it for a couple of weeks now. Directions for programming are vague and takes time to figure it out. I even emailed their help line but have never received an answer. Price was right for the camera. It has GPS, DATE AND TIME STAMP, SHOWS SPEED ETC. Video quality seems good including night time. But like I said this is my first dash cam, I actually bought one for my car and one for my truck, and have nothing else to compare it with so that is why I am showing that I would recommend it.

    It's a "OKAY" camera

    First: Camera is very nice. The video and picture is very nice in quality. Second: Camera is not user friendly. For something small, I would of expected it to be very easy to navigate the settings. Third: I turned the camera off and the camera will come on by itself. I went into the settings and turned the Motion sensor feature off and the camera still comes on by it self and even when I push the power button to turn it off, it comes on again...very frustrating! Fourth: Wifi is good, only if your able to connect to it.

    This looks like a really nice camera. It has nice features and nice packaging for a $179 dash cam. I ran into problems immediately though. If you follow the directions to download the "Road Cover Eye1Pro" iOS app you'll find that it doesn't exist. I had a buddy try on his Android phone and he could find the app, but it wouldn't connect to the camera. I'm not going to spend any more time with it. It seems like Car and Driver just slapped their name on a product and shipped it without fully supporting it. I'll try something else.

    I was a little hesitant to buy this since it didn't have the greatest rating. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase. The instruction booklet isn't the greatest, it doesn't explain what the settings mean. You basically have to stumble through the settings by trial and error. The picture of the videos saved to the memory card is great (more in view and better clarity than what you'll see on the device screen). I've had no issues saving/retrieving videos or with using the Android app. I'd definitely recommend this camera.

    Small size makes it easy to position. Turns off viewer after a few seconds to prevent distraction while driving. Picture quality is good. Easy to transfer to computer like any digital camera. Menus are not easy to follow and does not appear to retain settings once unit turns off, which returns selections to default settings, so no real point in changing since unit is powered off when car turns off. Instructions are not clear insome areas, such as what different folders created by unit are for.

    The camera works great, good picture, and outstanding play. The issue is that the software is entirely unintuitive. The accompanied instructions are brief and vague. On-line support of the associated app is also not much help. Looked for some support tip videos and was also unsuccessful. So, I'm still trying to push and peck at buttons everyday to see what this can do. I was able to download a video of my drive, so I know that it works, but I have no idea how to delete it..... other than that, I'm doing a lot of guessing.

    Has a great picture day and night but they advertise that it has an app which it doesn’t also the cameras built in battery is garbage I could drive for over an hour and then once it gets disconnected from the power source it will show the battery is dead or show a question mark over the battery and it will turn on and then turn right back off.. not at all happy with this product
