Well this weekend a family member was involved in a car accident with a front only camera, I had been putting off buying both directions for the family cars time and time again for this DR, but frankly my patience has run out now.

Ive had people in the various car groups chomping at the bit for this, but as of today im just going to tell them not to wait anymore and go with the high street brands.

Sorry SG, we might appreciate your commitment to quality but the constant pushing back, no eta, no updates, nothing to suggest any actual development or that anyone even cares is enough to put me off the brand.
Settle down Karen, this kind of attitude is exactly why most companies say nothing about what they are working on now. Honestly you are probably lucky to even know it's something that is in development, I doubt it's something they will say about any future products for these very reasons.

Whole thing reminds me of when dual cams started hitting the market and how notoriously unreliable some were because they wanted to be first out the gate unlike SG who were "late" to the party but released a product that worked.

If youre gonna post snarky replies at least keep up with the rest of the thread.

the last bit of tooling is scheduled for November 14th, once that's done then we can go the next step and do some beta test pieces and make sure everything is ok before we do first trial production, late December/early January if everything is ok
I can see wanting to iron out all of the bugs, but launching JUST AFTER the busiest shopping month of the year seems like it might hurt sales a bit.

More than my wife thinks I need.

Still orders of magnitude better than pushing out an inferior product.
