From Gearbest site: Interesting feature is, it takes a picture of parking spot and sends to your phone before turning off to make it easy to remember where you parked.
Not needed for me but interesting.

Wi-Fi Apps:
The default wi-fi app is little tricky to work with.
After installing and connecting to AutoBotxxxx wi-fi hot spot, you have to login with an email and password to create an account.
It also has other options to enter vehicle information.
Once that's done, it'll go to a screen where you can press the play icon to see live view.

Screenshots of the AutoBot wi-fi app:

However, other apps work fine.
YouMera.
FinalCam.

I tested both and work fine.
They don't have all the settings as the default app but for basic controls, they work fine.

I'll add screenshots in next reply below.

Sort of like, assuming there is a all black version too.

Connector between mount and camera seem ideal, thats the stuff you want to see if you are the kind of person that remove the camera from the car.

I am a little doubtfull as to the " real time view on smartphone" i do think there is the usioal lag, but if not,,,, whell then i like even more.

Hardware seem to be a good mix, hope its tweaked to yield optimal performance.

Sorry, I've been down with cold and flu so haven't been out of the home this week.

Hopefully, I can get out this weekend and update threads.
Damn cold!

I've been the same way. I hate it. Hope to get over it soon.
Here is one of mine to hold everyone over until you get some time.

I hope you can happen to find a better app that will work with this camera. It feels like it really falls short

Ya, it's not only me, all in the family including kids.

Anywho, there are multiple apps that work with this camera.
I'll update my 2nd post soon with screenshots.

I had this camera yesterday with other 3 but all clips except triggered ones are gone when I had it connected to my computer.
This stupid camera recorded my computer table for hours overwriting others. :(
I'll have to test again this camera just by itself.

Hi Guys
I'm just installing a Rock Autobot Smart Dashcam but I cannot scan the QR image to access the Android application on Google Play. Looking at some of the screen shots above it looks like the software you are using is YouMera Wi-Fi app. Is this the correct software for my dashcam/Android phone.
I hope you can help.
Regards
Craig
