Dunnow, but I bet their picture is more in focus than yours.:ROFLMAO:

Ah no, it's camera shake. You must have a dodgy mount.

After some Sherlock it looks like Voyager branding is only for the 212. My guess is excessive stock that needs shifting. Given the lack of GPS probably not that popular ?

I posted no GPS after viewing some online clips to see how good they were. None of the Voyager clips had any GPS location stuff at the bottom.

I'll double check .......

...... no mention of GPS in the manual or the manual sample screenshots.

They sound ideal for a rearview solution given the price.

GPS is not compulsory for the sale of a dashcam you know. Cheaper ones don't have it, as you have found.

No. It is not a satnav. I don't know of any dashcams that are a satnav. They are dashcams, designed to take videos of where you are going and are not designed to tell you where to go.
Having said that, there are some satnavs that have a dashcam capability.

So GPS isn't essential when buying a Dashcam?

Only if you want to know the exact time and location of any incident, and to prove that you were not moving, or how fast you were going at the time etc.
Without GPS you only get a recording of what happened.
With GPS you get the following information as well as the video.
GPS Time
GPS position (This can be played out on a map with the NextBase (and other) software.)
GPS Speed

Created specifically for Aldi, Voyager is a brand that we also trade under.

DVD players mostly but the opportunity came with Aldi.

They were an absolute bargain at £19.99, we (Nextbase) do offer a 212G now online with some retailers BUT its considerably more than £19.99.

I agree. If I wanted a rear cam it would be easier to plug into the boot power socket, if you have one, than trailing a wire through the headlining.
