On three of three cameras that I checked, the range of Motion Detection was only about 5cm (2 inches). In an e-mail from the manufacturer (see below) they claim a range of 10 meters (about 33 feet). I wonder what range other Dash Cam Talk members have gotten with their cameras. Has anyone gotten close to the 10 meter range?

Thanks and cheers :)

Kevin,

Thank you for your prompt reply. Unfortunately my Motion Detection only works at a maximum range of 5 centimeters. I tried approaching the camera closer and closer, waving my hand up and down, forward and back, directly in the path of the camera. Finally at 5 centimeters (about 2 inches) it detected movement and began recording.

Respectfully,

Both of mine record with motion, me walking across its view, at 15 feet 1-1-2016.

That is really good! Can I ask how new is your camera, i.e., recent purchase or Christmas present perhaps?

Okay, thanks. Three of my cameras, including two returned units (i.e., sum total of one unit remaining), were delivered in August and September of 2015. One more was purchased in November 2015. All were from B&H Photo Video.
