The Eachine LCD Rear View Mirror Car DVR Dash Cam acts as both a rearview mirror and a dash cam. The display takes up more real estate than another dash cam/rearview mirror I owned, which means I get a better view of what’s being filmed. I like that.
There are suction cups on the back of the cam so that it doesn’t scratch up the car’s rearview mirror (like my last such dash cam did). I like that, also.
What I don’t like is the bluish tint of the mirror and the fact the display won’t turn off when the camera is recording. My other rearview mirror dash cam would only stay on for minute, allowing us to check the angle. This one is on even at night, distracting me and making it hard to see cars behind me.
The cable that goes into the car’s power socket doesn’t work. I’m not sure if that’s the fault of the cable or the fault of the ports. There are two ports. I tried them both. Fortunately, the mini USB port works, and that’s what I used to power it.
The ultimate problem is the weak spring mount on the back, which broke after only a day of use. It no longer will mount to my car’s rearview mirror, which means I can’t use it.
