    So Good, I Bought Two

    I've driven with this model for a year in my car, and I like it so much that I bought one for my wife's car, too. It uses a WiFi connection to link to a cell phone for setup. It also uses WiFi to view videos and photos via cell phone, but it works very slowly and unreliably (in my case). Whether that's attributed to the device, the app, or my phone, I don't know, but I just put the micro SD card into my computer to view files. The video resolution is fully 1080p. It looks fantastic in daylight, and still very good at night. The built-in GPS is an excellent feature, allowing your speed to be recorded along with other location data. Of course, this may or may not be a good thing if you happen to be a "spirited" driver. This camera can record onto a micro SD card up of to 32GB capacity. Although I would like to be able to use a higher-capacity card, but that's on me. 32GB has proven to be plenty.

    I got a great deal on this cam. It's very versatile, and easy to use. The app works well, and it's like a GoPro with the wifi streaming real-time video to your phone. It records, and saves to a micro SD card in 3 minute loops. Find the segment you want, review, or download to your device. No need to remove the card, or hook up wires. There's a GPS device inline as well. GPS works with the app to show position/time/speed. It has a micro USB port so I hooked up a battery pack, and it works great as a mobile security cam anywhere, or use an adapter and plug it into an outlet. Sound quality is good, and the cam works well in low light/night. It's video is stable, little to no vibration. I really like 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.

    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.

    Bought this to add to my car for safety and possible insurance purposes after seeing something similar in an Uber car. Very easy to install and link up to a phone if needed. Unobtrusive when mounted, hardest part was opening the packaging!

    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!

    I bought a different dashcam. Unfortunately that one was s dud, so I picked this one up. So far so good. If you get it at a good price, it's worth it.

    I’ve heard you get what you pay for, well this camera is more than I paid for. Never thought I’d own a dash cam this good for $100.
