      Don't buy to use rear camera!

      Posted

      Well, this is my first EVER one-star review of a product, but I feel that this is deserved. My wife bought this Cobra dual-channel dashcam for me. I installed it the following day. Installation was relatively painless – the most annoying thing was running and hiding the wires, which were ran mostly through the headliner of the truck. Then came the really annoying part. You know how the Cobra CDR895D is sold as a front and rear camera dash cam? Well, don’t buy it as if you’re going to use the rear camera – at least not without some extra trouble EVERY TIME YOU START YOUR VEHICLE. Upon starting, the dash camera powers up (as long as you have it wired as recommended). The problem is that it RARELY discovers the rear camera. At first I thought it was a fluke with my camera, so I returned it (with no trouble – thanks, Best Buy!) and got a new one. I had to run the wires again (easier the second time) but the problem repeated. After a couple of days of using the camera, here’s what I’ve found. When the camera powers up after the vehicle starts, it almost never detects the rear camera. You can tell if it is recording both cameras by cycling through the views of it you see two small red dots in the upper left of the screen. If I was parked for more than a few hours, it NEVER detected the rear camera. I had to manually turn the power off on the camera and then turn it back on (with the vehicle already running). It would then detect the rear camera. This only takes about ten seconds, but I had to do this every single time, unless I only parked the vehicle for a short time. I checked Cobra’s website to ensure that I had the latest firmware (verified). So, I called Cobra’s service department and spoke with a technical service representative. He was *EXTREMELY HONEST*. He stated that he gets these calls all the time – that the rear camera isn’t detected. He thought it was due to the pin setup on the proprietary Y-cable. Obviously, Cobra had a third-party design/manufacture these. However, we did discuss how I disagreed with him because the longer the vehicle is parked, the more likely it is to not detect the rear camera. Here’s my idea on the engineering/design flaw that Cobra has with this camera. The camera has a built-in rechargeable battery that is used to power the camera while the vehicle is off. This power is needed for the “Parking Mode” so the camera can record when it detects motion for when someone could be breaking in or vandalizing your vehicle. If the camera totally discharges the battery, it will rely on vehicle power when the vehicle is started. All vehicles temporarily kill power to auxiliary loads while starting the engine. The camera detects the vehicle starting because of the extremely short time when the key/ignition goes through auxiliary to “run”. During this time, the camera powers with what little is left in the battery, but the rear camera does not have power. The only thing that makes me second-guess this is that the Battery icon on the camera shows it partially charged. So, here’s my bottom-line recommendation. If you’re buying this camera to record what is ahead of your vehicle, and behind it, don’t buy it. The front camera is good – it has a high-quality lens that records well in low light, but $200 for a front-camera only setup is way too expensive. Unfortunately, having to go through the trouble of powering off the camera and powering it back on after I start my vehicle just to get the rear camera to record is too much, and so is a $200 price tag.

      Basic Camera

      The front camera performs basic functions of recording 1080p videos while the rear camera does not provide the same quality. During night the rear camera is useless... the front camera firmware may have some bugs that need to be fixed especially if you connect the rear camera. One time the rear camera caused the system to hang, the power button did not help restarting the main camera even holding the power button for many seconds, I had to let the battery drain until the main camera turned OFF. The battery of the camera only powers the front camera and the runtime is only 30minutes or less. If you are buying the camera for the parking monitoring feature then you need to make sure you always keep the power on the camera otherwise the camera will turn off. I am using the camera now for a month, the camera went through very high temperature during the hot days in Texas (over 100F, also car parked in the sun), the front camera still operational while the rear camera is dead after around 2 weeks. One time I had the main camera not detecting the SD card because temperature was too hot, I had to turn it off and wait for around a minute or so then restarted the camera, after that things went fine. Basically if you are looking for a worry free camera then this is not your camera... I am attaching a picture showing when the rear camera start acting up...

      terrible device

      Posted

      First off, I will be returning this as soon as possible. I didn't read the reviews but I really should have this time around. There are a few issues; 1. The mount is way too long and for such a small device, it's really hard to get a position on the window that doesn't either block your view or hit the mirror. Also, this mount is very hard to get secure, every time you touch a button, the device spins on the mount. 2. On of the main reasons I bought this one was to have the dual camera but the way the second camera connects means you have to find a way to jam a huge connector into your headliner. 3. The USB charge port is on the SIDE of the device instead of the top, so no matter how well you hide the wire, the USB connection will be sticking out the side. A simple right angle connector on the cable would have made a world of difference or design the circuit board with the power connection at the top. 4. Although not a reason to return, the lane departure feature is laughable at best. I know it's not a sophisticated system like what would be in a high end car but this one is so bad it would have been better to not even include it. 5. Lastly, the main reason I need to return this device is that the unit has several times been running and then stop with an error message saying that I needed to re-insert the SD card. This doesn't actually solve the problem so a re-format is the only way to continue. I tried using another card I had already and I had the same problem. For a device costing $200, this thing is terrible, I've had better from cheap auction site units.

      Problem Dash Cam

      Posted

      We bought this dash cam in March of this year. Paid for installation and at first we thought it was a great dash cam. Then in May, it started beeping saying "please re-insert micro sd card". We did that and it still did not work. So went and bought a brand new sd card thinking that might solve it. It did not. I called customer care at Cobra and the representative said it was internal. Paid $25 to ship it to them and we received a new one. About another month goes by and we have the same problem, "please reinsert micro sd card". I called customer care again and they sent me to the managers voicemail. He finally called me back and said they will pay for shipping. I made it clear that this is the 2nd dash cam we have had from them and if the 3rd one has the same issues we would like at least a refund of the purchase price of the product, not asking for installation at all. I sent it in July and it is now August 16. I called them to see what is taking so long, it is back ordered for another 2 weeks. So we have had no use of this dash cam for the past month and a half....and the representative told me that if I want a refund for the 3rd dash cam if it doesn't work also, I would have to go to Best Buy and if Best Buy refuses then I would have to talk to her manager. So, this is what you have to deal with when you drop $300 for installation and a dash cam that seems to keep having internal problems. Please do not buy any cobra dash cam, you might get the run around and headache like us.

      Who knows

      Purchased one. Paid $100 for Best Buy install. Worked fine at first. After a few weeks it decided the SD card was not inserted [it was], and also decided Camera 2 was not connected [it was]. Now when I power on my vehicle and go driving, I get to listen to the annoying chirps the unit makes as it tries to figure out if it wants to work. Absolutely unreliable. Have taken it back to the store from which it was purchased and installed and had the tech re-examine it. Everything seems fine. We tore out some wires and disconnected/reconnected the line from the rear camera. Seemed to work for a bit after that, but now back to having issues. Unfortunately it worked well enough for two weeks that I bought two more units, and now I'm stuck with 3 of these dysfunctional pieces of garbage with $300 worth of installation that I'll never get back. My problem with Best Buy is that the tech at my store didn't really seem concerned that I was having issues. He seemed generally unsupervised and there was no handoff from management to the tech when I presented my problem. I don't know if the problem is with these units themselves or with the quality/method of installation. I received no explanation as to how he wired power to the unit. Perhaps there isn't stable voltage at the point he wired it? I have contacted Cobra support to file a complaint, but I may still return to the Best Buy store to speak with management.

      Car issues after install

      I bought this dash cam and had it installed in my Chevy Cruze. After a few hours my tpms started to not read my tire pressure. I went to the tire shop and all tires were reading correctly but weren't collecting to the car. 2 hours after that my cars stability track system started to mess up in the car. And I've never had problems with my car till after install. I called bestbuy and told them its causing problems with my car and I needed it uninstalled asap. The tech person said he couldn't uninstall it today but bring it by and he would at least unplug it from the car till the next appointment was open. I limped my car to best buy not able to go over 40mph because the stability track system would make my car putter and jump. After he killed the power to the dash cam within 20 mins my car was back to normal all the lights went off and I haven't had any issues since then. Between myself and the installer we have noticed that this camera admits some kind of radio wave or something that makes issues with cars that has wireless Sensors.

      Protects your assets

      Purchased for a second eye in my vehicle for asset protection. I upgraded the micro sd so that I could have more storage. The factory one is good for normal vehicle usage. Footage was amazing as well as the audio. Surprised by how much audio was picked up outside of vehicle as well as how clear both inside and outside sounds were. Rear camera is small enough for placing on dash for ride sharing drivers or out of sight in back glass. Front camera is small enough to place out of line of sight as well. Suctions well and holds steady. Once adjusted and tightened properly there is very little movement. Camera records in 3 minute blocks which I like as I can save what I need to and discard the rest when transferring from SD to PC. Saves from editing video feed and saves space on my PC. Also like the emergency feature how it starts recording when impact is sensed if you have an accident or hit one of the many potholes in Pa. Reassuring to know if I turn off the system and forget to turn back on that it will record in an emergency. Very good product. Worth the price.

      It's still a little premature to write a complete review. I need to play around with the camera more. I've had trouble getting some of the features to work. I can't seem to turn off the microphone. It's annoying that every time I adjust the position of the camera, it loosens the whole mechanism making it wobbly. I have to take it apart then and twist it around to tighten it. Also, since I had this installed in my car, I"m getting static on the radio. AM is awful now with a constant humming sound and the end of the dials on FM have some static too. I'm not sure why it's related, but it wasn't happening before I got the camera. The quality of the video is really very good during the day. Night time is not quite as good. I do like the ease of snapping a picture. Still, in the end this seems to be a reasonably priced option for high def video. Installation was a bit pricey at $120.
