Should I Purchase?

This is one of the first dual cameras with 1080p front and 720p rear.  Most owners are happy with this camera but there is limited English support.  If a dual camera system is a must, compare this with the BlackVue DR550GW-2CH.  While neither system is perfect, the BlackVue has more features but sells for a much higher price.  Unfortunately there are very few good multi-channel cameras available at the moment.


The latest English firmware and player can be downloaded from the Urive site.
