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.
