    Same as other reviews I had hard time to detach camera from plastic box. After that it is relatively easy to install on car. App easy to download but connection not stable time to time reconnect camera needed. Overall good quality camera for fair price when it was on sale.

    Great device / wish it had a better app

    The device itself is great, small, and great picture. Comes with an sd card, two different mounts and is an easy setup. The app on the other hand leaves a lot to be desired. The organization is poor. If you try and find something that was recorded, prepare to look through a lot of items that are not labeled properly. The date is off for one and there is no way in the app to change it.

    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.

    Camera works, but packaging and setup not good

    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 couldn't 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.

    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
