Dual-lens Dash Cam w/backup - REVIEW

I posted a while ago about the new dual lens dash/backup camera that I installed on my Accord. Installation was easy and cords were long enough to reach from front to back. However, while testing it, I was disappointed with pretty much everything about it. The main problem with these Chinese cheap cameras is the video quality.

1. The quality isn't 1080! It's hardly 480! And you know what, it still takes up as much memory as a 1080 would. A 9 second video takes up 1GB! That is useless as you can't really record while driving.

2. Night backup visibility is poor.

3. The backup screen should've been on the right side of the camera as it's too close in your face.

4. You can't use the rear camera as a back-up and rear cam. If you adjust it to record traffic in the rear, you can't see well when backing up. If you adjust it as a backup camera, you can't see the traffic coming from behind.

I'm returning it after about 1 month of use. Again, worthless to me. Get something better if you want to be able to record your driving. Stick to well known name brands and watch videos before purchasing.

I didn't create a thread about it. It was somewhere in the "So what did you do to your 7th Gen today..."
