Known problems
The camera has proven to be very reliable.

Crash test
Video footage is flushed to the memory card every second.


Mounting the camera
The suction mount provided is quite convenient. The camera can be removed and inserted very easy. The downside being that the suction mount allows some vibration. The mount provided can be used to mount the camera also to 90 degree vertical windshield.



View angle
In 1920x1080 resolution only part of the sensor is used thus view angle being smaller than advertised 120".
In other video resolutions full sensor is used and video is scaled down to the required resolution.

Too many
I think these guys have got a version of the G90 coming out as well soon - not sure what model number or pricing they'll be using for it though.

Prestigio has service centers in every european country. Probably in Poland also. There they have. And if the camera has been bought in a year they will replace battery for free. Replaced for my 530GPS.
