Hi Gary,

 

Well the way I had it wired up recently, was that I plugged it straight into a 12v 4 port extension and just left it there. Its probably just as easy to wire in a second 12v socket behind the dash and leave it permanently plugged in. You can also wire it into the ignition live sot hat its controlled by ignition.Live

Thanks for that. Ive just bought the same as you have would you recommend getting a higher gig sd card cause it comes with an 8gig. Looks and seems like a nice piece of kit I went for the uk seller. Thanks again for your replies. Gary:rolleyes:

Hi Gary, I had a 32gig class 10 I used in mine, but it overwrites when it gets full anyway, then If you need to keep a video, you just protect it and it overwrites the rest.

I love it and plan on getting one for the rear too.

Looks like a good camera, but for what you are paying for, (front and rear integrated) the problem is the rear view is not so clear, as your trying to record the world behind you from the rear view mirror and its not the greatest of views. This is why I prefer the idea of either two seperate camera's, or a detachable rear camera.

 

It does look good, but I dont think there are really enough tech specs on that page.

In which case, it might well be a very good buy!

 

A bit bulky for my liking though, it wont hide so well on the windscreen...
