This ultra compact Car DVR has two cameras that can both be rotated 270 degrees, allowing for recording high definition videos from two different angles. The night vision feature will also allow you to make clear recordings in relatively dark environments.
Compared to normal car DVRs, this new model introduces two new functions:
-GPS Logger: Open up Google Maps and you can instantly see your vehicle's driving track, speed, time, and date.
-G-Sensor: Also known as the gravity sensor, this car DVR detects and records any sudden motion or speed changes in X, Y and Z axis. As soon as any sharp braking, rapid acceleration, excessive cornering or sudden impact occurs, you can be sure this car DVR remembers.

The video can only be played through the player provided on the unit which it loads as a .exe file on the memory card to be opened by a windows PC. The video seems to be compiled through this program as I can't see the recorded files on the memory card as separate files with an extension so in view of this it is not easily sent to another party by e-mail, e.g. as evidence of an accident or such.
In conclusion it's an interesting toy but I wouldn't want to rely on it in a court of law.
The two lenses can be rotated or switched to just use the front facing lens. The only other problem has been that the class 10, 32GB micro SD card has to be removed every weeks and formatted because it doesn't record over previous recording as is stated. Hence 2/5
2. There is no USB connection for this unit. I kind of assumed there would be (my own fault for not doing my homework) as these days, what unit which is designed to interface with a PC doesn't have one or some other way to transfer files?
3. File transfer. To get recordings onto your PC, you have to physically remove the micro SD card from the unit and insert this into your PC. I would much prefer to download it directly from the unit via a USB port as moving the micro SD card in and out is fiddly at best. You wouldn't want or expect to do this with your mobile phone would you every time you wanted to view pictures or video?
4. Most PCs do not have a micro SD card reader and so a full size SD adapter card is essential. Not all micro SD cards come with an adapter, so make sure you get one from somewhere as there is no other way to get at your recordings.
5. The manual is in `Chinenglish' and not very helpful IMHO.
6. The method of extraction of the video files is a bit `clunky'.
I was expecting the recordings to be a series of AVI files on the card but instead all you find is a single executable called JPlayer.exe. Running this allows you to view the individual files and the Google Maps route view using the GPS data.
You can then export the video to AVI files so that you can share these and view on a PC with Media Player or similar. Note that this export is the video (front and rear camera views) only. One thing I cannot see a way of exporting or otherwise accessing without the JPlayer is the Google Maps view, which would be potentially useful to be able to share as this shows movement, direction and speed/info etc. Not a deal breaker for me though.
It was touch and go, as if I'd have known what I know now, I would not have bought this, and I was in two minds as to whether I was going to return this on the basis of the above. However, You can just about get away with the annoying loss of video in the left corner of the screen due to the bracket being in the way and I do have a couple of SD card adapters floating around by chance. It does still record the pertinent details and the quality of the video and still images is good once you can get at them. I am therefore looking at sourcing another bracket or other mounting method to see if I can make life easier and to try and live with these flaws.
Update: After getting blurred images from the front camera, I discovered the cause, The front camera lens has come away from its housing and is now useless after about 9 months. Reduced rating accordingly.
Update#2 4/7/13: I have repeatedly tried to contact the seller to obtain sale of good act / warranty repair or replacement and the seller will not respond to me or Amazon. Don't buy if you think you may need any customer service or warranty. Will keep you posted.
He's already tested it out, the night vision is apparently exactly like a scene out of Paranormal activity.
The screen automatically turns off after a certain amount of time so that it doesn't blare in your eyes and apparently you forget it's even there after a while. Bad Drivers beware with this then ;).
So as far as I can tell from my brother this is was a brilliant buy and he's absolutely loving it so far.
