The camera itself has many options – you can change the length of each recording and change the quality of video you want captured. The only downside is that the video recording of high quality takes up a large amount of storage space. The menus are very easy to navigate and the manual describes every feature. There is also an option for parking monitor which is excellent if you are away from the vehicle and someone bumps into your car – you can adjust sensitivity. You can download an app on your phone to view the recordings but I have not used this yet. I prefer to transfer the files directly to my computer.
Camera Quality – Great quality both during the day and at night. Clearly able to see number plates and other small details. There is also the option to add audio to the recordings. Many options for changing the video quality to save storage space.
The build quality is excellent and the mount included is strong and sturdy. The camera can be rotated to suit an angle.
In conclusion, this is the best camera at this price point with great video quality. This will not disappoint. This is just another fantastic Anker product that has been fully developed which I would recommend to anyone that owns a vehicle, it will come in useful. One improvement would be to include a touch screen to make the use of the product easier. If you need any help with operating this product you can contact Anker/Roav who will always offer the best assistance out there.

Camera Quality: Comparable to the C1 but seems to have slightly improved night vision and a bit more wide capture overall. I attached pictures in the night and day to show how close you need to be to see a license plate clearly. I took the picture as soon at it was visable. Overall it is very clear in 1080P and a 32-64 GB micro SD card should be fine. I personally use a Samsung 64 GB Evo+ card and it works perfectly.
Form factor: My Honda CRV has black dots at the top of the windshield so I wasn't able to put the camera out of view behind my rear-view mirror, but in my Honda Accord without dots, I was able to FULLY CONCEAL it behind my mirror and never even notice it. It is a bit sleeker than the C1 and it is nice that I can freely move it from car to car since there isn't a one time use adhesive mount. Pros and cons to each mount type but get whatever suits your needs best.
Interface: The menus are easy to navigate and the instruction manual does a very good job of describing every feature. It truly is a set it and forget it device. The only option you really need to change is whether or not to have the parking monitor on or off which will record when it sees or feels movement or sound. I keep it on low sensitivity and the built in battery seems to do a perfectly fine job of recording things while I am not in the car. THIS HAS A BATTERY NOT A CAPACITOR. The temp range in plenty for me but please buy to your needs.
Last thoughts: The camera comes with a single port 1A power adapter and a very long usb cable so you have everything you need to get up and running. The included trim removal tool is a nice touch and I would highly recommend taking the time to hide the power wire behind your trim panels. Anker delivers again and the only thing I could think of is adding GPS which is in other Anker models. 10/10 for the the price. Feel free to ask me any questions regarding the camera.
The first camera, let's call it Camera #1, cost $47.99, and its main features were: 170 degree angle, WIFI, iPhone user interface that included live streaming of the image, 3M adhesive mount, ADAS, 30-day money back warranty.
In comparison, this Roav cost $59.99 and its corresponding main features are: 140 degree angle, WIFI, iPhone user interface but no live streaming, suction mount, no ADAS, 12-month warranty.
Both models have the same, small compact form factor.
I thought I would prefer Camera #1's wider 170 degree view, but in retrospect, I like the 140 degree view better. The former does give you more sight-line, but there's fisheye distortion that is inevitable with such a wide view.
Camera #1 can connect via WIFI to my iPhone, allowing you to set camera parameters, download video files, and stream the image. The Roav has WIFI where you can set camera parameters and download video files. It can't stream, and the camera won't record while the WIFI is connected. Being able to live stream to your iPhone is a feature I miss, as it's easier to see my line-of-sight cell phone vs the dash cam that sits under the rearview mirror.
Comparing adhesive mount to suction mount, I prefer the latter. I unmounted Camera #1 when I returned it, and using a razor blade to cut through the 3M adhesive pad was a PITA.
Camera #1's ADAS was a compelling safety feature, until I started using it. It's false alarms drove me crazy. This Roav camera doesn't offer ADAS, but it does have a cousin, "parking collision detection," which turns on the camera if the car is moved forcefully enough. However, even when I set the sensitivity on "low," this feature has many false alarms.
Last point of comparison is the warranty. I thought Camera #1's 30-day warranty would be fine, but once I encountered the problem that eventually caused me to return it and worked with their Support to try to resolve it, 30 days flew by fast.
Now on to the Roav itself...
Excellent sturdy construction.
Excellent image, including at night, and good sound capture.
Compact size doesn't compromise driver's view of the road.
Generous length of power cord, which I ran around the perimeter of the windshield for cable management.
Mount is stable, in that it doesn't move/mis-align the camera if your hand or a cable brushes against it. You can also rotate the camera to face any direction.
Easy to re-mount to another location on your windshield, just rotate a ring on the shaft of the mount.
Fairly fast transfer rate for video files to iPhone, about 3mb/s. This translates to roughly a minute of download wait time for each minute of video.
Easy to set the camera's settings on the iPhone app.
Advertised higher tolerance to high temperatures, though I won't know if this is true until Summer.
Comes with a crowbar to tuck the power cord under the car's ceiling liner.
No live streaming onto your iPhone, only video playback.
Parking collision detection, even in low sensitivity, is overly sensitive. Just opening the door and getting in would set it off. When it sets off, the camera starts a 30-second, locked video. Because the storage for a locked video cannot be re-cycled automatically, eventually you have to delete each locked file manually or erase the entire SD card by formatting it.
Wish list features, probably too much to ask for on a $60 camera:
Data compression to save on storage and to increase file transfer speeds.
Overall assessment: a well designed, well made, reasonably priced camera whose user interface (iPhone app) is rather plain vanilla.
The Wi-fi technology and app makes downloading footage a breeze. You won't have to connect your dash cam to a computer or pull the microSD each time you want footage. There is also a gravity sensor that initiates recording if something hits your car while you're away. One of my favorite features is that this dash cam uses micro-USB rather than the mini-USB connection that most dash cams come with. Why other companies use outdated technology is beyond me.
Recently, my sister was involved in a car accident where another car merged into her. Since it was minor in nature, the police did not come out to write an accident report. Even though the other person admitted to my sister that he didn't see her, he still told his insurance that it was her fault afterwards. His insurance told her it was a he said - she said situation and that they were not liable as a result. My sister (who has a Roav dash cam) immediately sent the insurance the footage. The wide-angle, super clear night time footage was more than enough evidence and they immediately responded that they were liable for the damages. Thanks, Anker!
