Haven’t seen this advertised much, only just seen it on the argos website for £80. Specs looks good, does anyone know anymore about this dash cam or who has purchased it?

Thanks

This one is the 212G with GPS. Wasn't the Aldi one the 212 without GPS ?

I think the 212 ‘voyager’ was the one that was on sale in Aldi recently. The 212g looks fairly new I’d say 2/3 months old... even Halfords aren’t promoting it either although there quite good with branding the nextbase products in their stores

I decided to purchase the nextbase 212G upon reading the good reviews on the argos website, will be using this as a front end dashcam on my car alongside my existing 412gw as a rear end dashcam. Annoying why nextbase don’t provide a 3m Mount in the box as standard regardless of what model it is & the nextbase window sticker could be so much smaller & discreet imo. Will report back in a few weeks with how I get on & what the quality is like as apparently this has better night vision so with the darker nights drawing in now should be a good test. Another thing I’ve noticed in the menu that I don’t have on my 412gw is that you can actually save all your settings?

When M8 sees this he'll explain why, but, the higher the resolution of the lens the worse it is at night.

In my case, not going out in the dark, the higher the resolution the better.

Thanks K. :eek:
Without looking up the resolutions of the cams under question, generally for any given size sensor, the lower the res = larger the pixels = better low light performance.
Again as a general statement, the best way of getting good low light performance at high res is to use a bigger sensor area. But that, of course, means bigger lenses which of course means more expensive. And the whole shooting match is with the manufacturers.
