I bought 4 units from Gearbest
1st unit the car charger was defected
2nd unit doesn't recognize when the car switched off
3rd unit came DOA (do not power on)
4th unit didn't arrive yet
I bought it from Gearbest and their customer support is horrible.

I wouldn't recommend this dashcam nor Gearbest

Too many
With all the issues with the Z7 it is sounding like they potentially totally broke these by cost cutting to keep the price that low - a shame as the one I was sent was a nice little camera.

Cheap isn't so cheap if they're not reliable, and sorry Yoramza that you have had these problems which Gearbest will hopefully sort for you

1st: I don't worry about charger. I've been using a different usb charger since the start. They are cheap to replace.
2nd: Reset it by pressing the reset button. See if that works.
3rd: Try diff. charger or computer usb to see if it's the cable/charger.
4th: If it never came, contact seller. What about tracking?

My piece is also good so far, no issue.
Works great and it's on/in the car that's parked outside all this winter that went below -10 degree Fahrenheit (-23 Celsius) and still works every time I start the car.
