I have a question. Can I connect B1W to a computer VIA USB cable to get a footage files?
I understand camera uses USB for power but can USB used for power and data?
If yes, than it's a totally different ball game and camera can be used in conjunction with carputer.
Would appreciate any input on this!
Cheers,
Mark

Yes, you can, although it will then be in USB Storage Device mode and will not be a Dashcam, so it will only be usable as a card reader. It also makes a rather slow card reader, no USB 3 or UHS, although it will be faster than access over wifi.

Thank you for a quick answer!
That's what I've suspected - either cam or a HD.. Too bad.
It would've made a great product! Camera records and RPi pulls recorded footage as it becomes available.
Making it better product in a parking mode as RPi can be delayed for as long as needed, say an hour on a parking lot.
Also would be very convenient to be able to pull footage from RPi while car parked in your garage.
Hmmmm.. alright, will think of something else
