    Defrost/er wires - bad for mounting. Bad for picture

    Suction cups I have used hate being mounted atop defroster wires. Never stay very long. Also, camera image has hard time looking good through or obstructed by the wires. Rear-facing dashcam. So, I've ordered some sticky discs. I also like the self adhesive mounts.

    Standardize dash cam test video?

    I was just thinking, why not have one or more movies/videos created that can run very precise, exact images/videos on a large 4K screen, and people can set up a dash cam on a tripod and dim the lights, and point the dash cam at it and we (all) can have consistent recording SOURCE from which to...

    Any B&W Dashcams? Better night performance

    I have more than a few home CCTV/IP-Cams. My old Philips/Magnavox BLACK & WHITE CCTV system has amazing low-light capabilities. Even some of the iPhone 7 rumors thought the dual-camera set-up MIGHT HAVE had one B&W sensor so that Apple COULD HAVE used that better low-light data to fill in the...

    mini 0801 is still love of my life

    the mini 0801 was first dash cam I bought. Now I have bought more. And I am blown away by how good the 0801 is for 1. camera angle 2. small, compact with GPS 3. night or low light image quality. My recent papago, B40, and other lesser cameras have not held a candle to my 0801.

    Dashcams with quickest/easiest mount to remove and 'take with'?

    I prefer my Mini 080X because the mount is so darn unobtrusive and easy to take the cam out when I leave the car, and put it back in/on when I come back. Anyone like to discuss any other dash cam mounts that make for easy on/off/on ?

    Tempting dual-cam $35 ebay. AV-C60-2

    $35 ! With a cam that can be positioned out the rear. I'd even like to put that near the license plate. (with a tiny little lens wiper..hehe). It's the rear that concerns me a lot. I got runned-over by semi truck (yes runned). I do have some questions, and anyone that might know the answer I...

    Has your GPS mount failed?

    I've tried everything I can think of to get GPS to work again. Has anyone else had a GPS mount work at first, then quit working? What is the cheapest source for a replacement? I assume that it does not matter if one purchases the GPS mount from the same seller. But, correct me if I'm wrong...

    Sadly, mine is now unreliable

    I purchased through prance. The GPS stopped working for no apparent reason. I tried different cards. Now, it's just shutting off after minutes of operation. This is useless to anyone at this point. I'll see if they stand by their product. Sad. I like the design and packaging. Especially the...

    New 0801 user: No GPS data in desktop app

    I downloaded the software from e-prance. I only am using built-in memory. I connect the USB cable. I start the app. But I am not seeing any GPS data. When I record in-car, one can hook up the usb power to either of two places: In-camera; on GPS/mount. Does it matter which? I tried both. All data...
