    Camera works, but packaging and setup not good

    Posted
    BobinCLT

    The camera seems to be working as it should and the pictures are sharp and clear. However, there were two big problems in setting it up. First - I couldn't get it out of the plastic container; so I took it to my BestBuy store and three of their strongest people including the head Geek couldn't get it out of the container. They finally just smashed the plastic container and the camera came out. Second - Back home I tried to follow the instructions to set it up, but could not find the "Bracket Socket" to insert the SD card. Finally I called the manufacturers tech support line. The support person helped me remove a "packing bracket" that was covering the "Bracket Socket". It took a large vise grip and a lot of strength to remove that bracket. Seems like Car and Driver could improve their packaging to be customer friendly and then explain that there is a "Packing Bracket" that also needs to be removed from the camera and put some lubrication on that bracket to allow it to come off without tools and a lot of effort.

    Parking Mode does NOT sense motion

    When in parking mode it takes 1 frame each second and does not sense motion. . I’m still giving it 5 stars, as it is a good dash cam and perhaps some people might prefer this 1 frame each second regardless of motion when in parking mode. For me, this means when parked and there is no motion you have too many files to look through to find a file with motion. I could not get the downloaded software to work on my Android Version 5.1.1 Samsung Tablet either. I’ve owned and used several dash cameras. This one takes good pictures and you can rotate it easy in the vehicle, very nice if the action is at the side of the vehicle. I will be purchasing a camera that senses motion when in parking mode.

    Terrible instruction

    Posted

    Trying to get the camera out of the plastic case was a 2 hour waste of time. There were no instructions on how to get it out without breaking. I finally called the help line. Some guy named Willy said I’ll email a picture. You need a pin and a picture of how to break it free. No instructions came with this in the box. After getting it out the instructions for operating we’re very criptic. It was impossible to program it. I went to the ap and that wouldn’t work either. You can’t tell if it’s taking pics. I did one time see pics of my shoes but then couldn’t clear it. A total waste of 3 hours. I took it back and bought another product.

    Two months after installation the Car and Driver MinioPro CDC628 Dash Cam began to have problems connecting to our phones (androids) and now it will not connect at all rendering it useless. Best Buy will not replace it and the manufacturer wants it returned for them to evaluate. They do not state whether they will replace, repair or do nothing. Shipping of course will be at my expense. I do not recommend this product.

    A bit underwhelming for the price

    I bought this because I don't like having a dashcam that has a screen to distract me. This does OK in that regard. However, it has very poor night performance . . . useless I'd judge, based on the stored video. Poor customer support. I wrote them on their Web site and a week later I have no reply.

    Best purchase ever made. Already paid for itself after someone crashed into me and took off. Was able to get their license plate. Only issue is if the car is more than 10~15 feet away it’s hard to pick up the license plate number.

    You cannot log into the App to view the camera footage unless the camera is on and you’re accessing the App via a phone right next to the camera. The purpose of having the camera was so my spouse could check on my well being while driving.

    Best Dash Cam

    The Car and Driver dash cam is terrific. I didn't think I'd like it but I love it. It is easy to set up, easy to sync with your cell phone and its cool. Captures everything happening in front of you while driving. This will be a hit item this holiday!
