    I bought the DR3500 November 25. Had a replacement camera because there was something wrong with the first DR3500. Yesterday evening, I decided to return the DR3500 because the replacement camera also has problems.
    No more Blackvue for me anymore! :eek:

    It can turn off but the white ring while it's off is still very noticeable. It's rather annoying but not the end of the world.

    Without the GPS module, how does it know the time correctly?

    Ok thanks. So without the GPS module, how does the camera distinguish between Normal Recording and Parking Recording? Is it always based on motion?

    I was under the assumption that the g sensor is what triggers parking mode. other wise it would not leave parking mode while you move in a parking garage until you get back outside.

    Is there much of a video quality difference between this and the Blackvue DR650GW 1ch?

    I don't need the wifi, gps, etc., so trying to decide if it's worth the cost difference to get the 650, which I wouldn't mind paying more for the 650 if the video quality is much better...

    Thanks alexsoll, but I was actually looking to compare the DR3500 with the DR650. I think your links above reference the DR650 and the Streetguardian...

    It does seem there is custom firmware for the DR3500 which increases the bit rate, but none that I could find for the 1CH DR650.
