SJCAM CAR app





Couldn’t stream to watch from SJDASH+ as the 5 minutes file is 1GB in size. Require to download to your phone then only can watch.


Videos
Recorded the videos in 1920×1080 60fps with an overall bit rate of 30.5 Mb/s








Final thoughts

The SJDASH+ M30+ is the improved version of SJCAM’s first dashcam, the SJDASH M30.

Here are the differences between the SJDASH & SJDASH+:

Here is my review of the SJDASH M30: Link

Overall image quality is improved on the SJDASH+ due to the higher overall bit rate of 30.5 Mb/s and the Sony IMX291 Starvis sensor. But the 5 minutes files is about 1GB in size and can’t be changed to 1 minute or 3 minutes files. Which is why using the SJCAM CAR app can’t stream the video to the phone.

The LDWS is working ok about 60-70% of the time when highway driving. But will get lots of false warning driving in the city or stuck in a jam.

thanks for the review @Jeremy Wong , great to see a camera with such a high bitrate - I kind of feel that has been lacking from dash cameras lately.

I have just bought this DVR. Picture/resolution is great. I also installed the program (SJCAM DVR GPS PLAYER V1.0), which is supposed to read/play GPS data. The program did install, the icon is at desktop, but the program DOES NOT start.
Has anybody any experience with that program? I have tried on Windows 7 and Windows 10 computers, but no luck.
Dashcam is otherwise workinh with no problems, also wi-fi and Android app are running OK.

24.07.2018 - I was contacted by SJCAm support and they told me there is an issue in that program. They will post an updated program soon.
We will see if it will work then.
