Hi all,

New to the dash cam scene. I think I'm convinced to get the SG over the F800 Pro that I initially decided on since there are features I would pay for that I would never use. 3 questions:

1. Is the SG9663DC Pro the top of the line SG model right now?

2. Are there any plans for an updated/new model to come out soon?

3. To run this in parking mode, what 3 wiring kit is needed?

Thank you.

1) Yes the SG9663DC PRO has only been out for 2 months, latest and greatest. (replaces SG9663DC)

2) The SG9663DR should be out by Spring. (DR = Dual Remote) It will have the same specs as the SG9663DC PRO only both cameras are remotely connected to a middle box, and you hide the main DVR in the glovebox instead of attaching it behind the rearview mirror. It will take longer to install the DR.

Is there now a spoken alert for failed memory card? My camera will be installed behind my mirror.

Will also whine / beep if you have forgotten to put the card back in the camera after having been retrieving footage on the computer.
I do this often i feel ( factoring in how rare i have the memory card out of a camera ) and most often its not cuz i have forgotten the card in my apartment, i am just in too much of a hurry to get going in the car.

final costing not finalized yet but should be about the same
Will the DVR have a screen on it or will it be strictly wifi? (sorry I'm way behind)

SG seem firm on having screens and a on devise option to do settings, wifi are often a hornet nest, and also i assume why they don't really talk about wifi in the products of theirs that do have wifi.
They are working hard on a APP as you can rely on 3 party if you want to do it right.

I'm a complete dash cam noob (first post here), but looking to buy a TOTL unit. What are the advantages of the "Dual remote" unit? I think I read somewhere that the remote units will run cooler, which would be important for me as I live in central Texas and it gets pretty hot during the summer. Just trying to decide if I should wait or if I should go ahead and purchase the model that's out now.

Thanks!

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
yes dual remote will run cooler, will still be a while before it's ready though, we're still doing some fine tuning to get things right before we can release it
