    I am not a fan of this, after using the Thinkware 750. These cam does not have a lot of features, and the application isn't intuitive.

    Good product, poor app

    The camera is light with good resolution. The app may be good but it is not intuitive and there is no meaningful instruction set available. Hopefully this will be corrected.

    for the $49 you get features you do not find on similar priced cams. . I bought three and came to the following conclusions using my iphone 8 plus pros - clear pictures--recording is date time and MPH stamped--loop recording--wifi connect to your phone using their app--parking mode--gps travel records. comes with a long enough wire to completely hide it from view cons - package removal process is complicated yet simple (slide it out)--app needs an update. yes it works but it is clunky, gps works but maps do not load, and there is a complicated connection process. . after you connect for the first time via wifi you have to remove the app and reinstall it. . then turn voice recognition on. . she will tell you a code and you enter it. . done. if you do not do this process the app will continuously crash. . after I did that process, I have had no issues. so four stars based on having to figure out those issues. . update the app and you get five stars

    Bad packaging & worthless product manual

    I've been looking for a "stealth" dash cam and the Car & Driver - Minio Pro CDC-628 fit the bill... small & mounted behind the rear view mirror, it offered the features of bigger & bulky dash cams on the market, but without being a distraction to the driver. Unfortunately, removing the camera from the packaging was impossible without using drastic measures (see other reviews). I used a 1/4" drill to bore 6 holes around the plastic base holding the camera to crack the base from the plastic cube, being careful to not damage the camera! The product manual didn't provide any instructions on removing the camera from the plastic cube. The manual is worthless, it doesn't provide any details about setup nor operation. These drawbacks will prevent this product from becoming a popular consumer dash cam choice. Through trial & error, I've used the Minio Pro for a recent 2,000 mile road trip. The image quality is excellent (day & night), but could have saved time & less aggravation if the product manager had written a better manual!
