    Does the job

    It is a good camera with a quality recording. The only problem so far is the online user manual. It is very limited and does not explain quite a few things. Disappointed in the manual.

    No magnet in box (allows you to attach the camera to the inside of your windshield) and instructions are not clear. After 3 days of use, I took it back for a refund. This camera gets so hot, you could fry bacon in it (even in November) and I got a Uniden instead at Best Buy that I'm totally happy with.

    Mounting instructions were not the greatest. Or maybe I was being dense. Everything else was really easy. Camera seems to function as promised.

    Instructions overall very poor. Have gone online and still am unsure of what he dash cam actually captures. Need to unplug when car turned off. Was told it did not drain

    The video quality from this camera is awesome, even when viewed on a big TV. No users manual is included, which is surprising for a $150 item. The quick-guide is useless, the link to the manual did not work, and the wifi app you're supposed to be able to use would not work with my tablet, which isn't even that old. The one-minute video files are a chore to deal with, and I could not find a way to change it. You can do a lot better for the price.

    Nice little camera. Lots of nice features. I didn't know, however, that it adds forward collision detection, lane departure warning, and can even tell you when a red light is coming up and when traffic ahead of you starts moving. I also didn't know how annoying the constant, unnecessary the constant noise can be. Wish I knew how to turn it off. But, the instructions aren't that great.

    Set up was a real pain as I had to get the instructions online and the firmware updates can only be done via the download able app. We don't have smartphones and my tablet needs a wifi hot spot. Fortunately there is an xfinity hot spot I can pick up outside as our inside wifi doesn't go that far . I had to update both as they immediately overheated but not since the update. Dramatic improvement over the basic Uniden cameras we had. We can now actually read licence plates and video at night looks just like what I see with my eyes. Only negatives are no zoom capability and streaming to my tablet gets an error that the resolution is too high. I don't wish to use the lower resolution so I just pop the memory card out and into my laptop. I love the red light camera warning as well as the lane departure, traffic moving and proximity alerts. In addition to these two cameras I also picked up a Garmin drive 51 GPS. I'll be using this as Ford is discontinuing SYNC SERVICES.
