Known problems
The camera has proven to be quite reliable.

Poor sound quality
The dash cam has crackling and hissing sounds when recording. In some cases the quality is so bad that you cannot hear conversations in the car.

LCD always on
There is no timer that turns off LCD automatically. Even by closing the LCD cover the screen stays on. To switch off the LCD the button "down" must be pressed manually.

Parking mode
While the dash cam provides "Motion detection" option in the menu, the feature does not work at all.

Mounting the camera

The suction mount provided is quite convenient. The camera can be screwed and unscrewed very fast. The downside being that the suction mount provided cannot be used to mount the camera to 90 degree vertical windshield.
