    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.

    I do love the features this has and it is very easy to use. It can use up to a 64gb micro SD Card and does loop so you don't run out of space. I would seriously recommend upgrading the memory card instead of using the one that comes with it, because if you want to save a few pictures or videos they can quickly eat up space. I leave it on 1080p 60 fps setting as it seems to be better on that setting but it can do 2k. Really neither one allow you to get a good shot of a license plate unless you are still. But that has to do with the mount and type of vehicle its in. If you are using this in a luxury car or SUV your fine, but if you are going to be using this in a RZR or Off road vehicle look at GoPro. All in all it's a great product and does what it is supposed to do. The mount, even though i thought it would loosing and be crappy, has held up and appears to be working fine even after all the time i have had it. Would buy another one if i had to. App can use some work that comes with it, but it does work.

    Not worth it

    Well first of all it was a bit confusing to set up. My first problem was it froze on me but I was like okay that’s fine just a minor malfunction. My next issue is it only records three minutes and will start another three minutes for each file which is very odd. So my major reason for this low rating is I had a close call. Luckily it was just a close call and my car is fine! But I get home thinking it saved it and nope it saved everything before I got to the place and after the incident. Literally EVERYTHING but the main part of the video I wanted. So I was pretty upset because god forbid it would have been a major one I would have been screwed. Also while having it plugged in it kept turning off after that I was annoyed and returned it for the Garmin 45 which is way better!!! So please do tons of reasearch before buying a dash cam. And stay away from this one. But again everyone has different experiences.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
