This dash cam is one of the nicest ones I’ve seen. It has a larger viewing area for both the mirror and the screen. And, it comes with a rear cam. You have to mount the rear cam with screws and adhesive and run a long wire from front to back, but the mirror cam mounts with just two silicone straps. That’s easy. All you need to provide is the micro SD card.
The controls took a little fiddling, but I figured it out within minutes. The front cam moves, so we can adjust that. The rear cam . . . well, I didn’t want to drill holes.
The only thing I don’t care for is the tint of the mirror, which was there even after the clear protective film had been removed. Great cam, though. Just set it and forget it. Not distracting at all.
If you don’t like dash cams that distract you with a screen, this dash cam is for you. With this cam, you can check the placement with your smartphone and the Androind or iOS app. (I downloaded mine from the Google Play store.) One of the nicest thing about that is the time stamp automatically syncs with the phone. And yes, no distracting screen to get in the way.
Drawbacks include an adhesive mount (too permanent for some people) and a proprietary cable that is split between USB and composite video. Lose the cable and you’re out of luck.
