So i decided to post a thread about the Transcend DrivePro 520 seeings as their isn't a lot on here about it. I did read the thread that included a review of the camera but for the most part it didn't seem to answer some questions. One question i saw unanswered was about the G-sensor. Yes the G-sensor can be turned off. Now onto my own personal thoughts on the camera. I haven't used the WiFi feature to much for retrieving videos from it but the little bit i did use it, i wasn't to happy with it. Mostly because it was slow. The WiFi is about my only complaint about it. The video quality is excellent. The rear camera at night does a great job in dark light conditions. The front camera does pretty good with dark light conditions as well, but when there is excessive lighting (the sun) it doesn't do the greatest but you can still make out what you're watching. The battery isn't the greatest but i didn't expect to be great as the camera doesn't have a parking mode. I have not had any issues with coordinates, as the do seem accurate. It does freeze on me if i have some "emergency" videos saved and the SD card is full, but that could also be from the SD card itself. The microphone on the unit is amazing (sometimes not a good thing lol.) I was playing air drums on my dash very lightly and it was picked up in a video I uploaded to YouTube. please feel free to ask me some questions about the camera and I will do my best to answer what I can. if you want to see some video samples you can check out my YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/c/mrroadside616 If anyone has any suggestions on anything that can make the camera work better please feel free to also add. I hope this thread is able to help someone with a purchase in the future.
