To be honest this confuse me too when seen in the grand view of other products.

I have not been able to compare it to the GC V3 as i wiped my windscreen to make room for new products, my V3 are now in my friends car where it replaced the V1

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
so what makes this different from the SG GC (and A118) that it physically resembles?
had we not done the SGGCX2 than this would have been the updated version of the V3, a few changes that we would have done anyway, change to IMX323 (IMX322 is no longer available), updated cig charger, couple of other little tweaks

Just a little FYI for the people finding their way in here, after almost 2 months and a unusual sunny and warm month of May, the GT65EX are running perfect aside for a faulty RTC battery in the GPS antenna it have been flawless.
It just sit there and do what its supposed to do, and the wonky antenna of course got replaced by SG / GT,,,,, nooooo problemo (y)
With the heritage in mind this is shaping up to be a fine dashcam.

Reporting back at a later date if i find any issues.

It is now 5 months down the road, and just on the tail end of a unusual good summer in Denmark, though instead of having August as the last month of summer we Danes got the month of May instead as i teaser of things to come.
So when it come to heat testing a Dane cant put more load on a camera than what i did on the GuardTrak GT65EX in the past 5 months, and i am happy to say the camera are still doing strong as expected.
Now i am waiting on winter to arrive to do a little cold weather testing, but before that i think the GT65EX will have been replaced, so will have to pull a switcheroo if winter decide to match the summer we just had, though i have my doubts about that judging on past winters.

GT65EX now close to a year old, nothing particular bad to say about it.
The camera have been doing what it is supposed to do, and to a large degree it have been set and forget as it have not been the camera i have touched most in my car.
Like all other dashcams in "busy" situations the camera struggle due to the modest bitrate all cameras have, so in those situations even in the best of circumstances blocking in the image can make a plate capture problematic.
But as i said this are a universal problem in current dashcams of all brands, and plate capture are not everything, the 65EX can do this as good as just about any dashcam.
There are no speed in the footage as i "borrowed" the GPS from the GT camera to put on a SG camera that had a bad GPS from the factory, the company will replace this for you no problem if it happen to you.
I just haven't bothered them with the problem as we are talking free test cameras and really its no problem for me as a tester with so many dashcams on the windscreen.
The camera have been thru a unusual long and hot summer of 2018, and a warm winter where we just matched the record for hottest winter day even measured, so it have only been a few days/nights with temperatures around 0 deg C or a little less, -5 deg C i think have been the coldest for my area this winter.



The Guard Trak GT65EX will see service for a little while yet in my car, then i will donate it to a Dane that are willing to use it in the fight against stupid and dangerous drivers on Danish streets.
Whoever get it i am sure the camera will serve the person well. (y)
