Yeah the quality isn't overly bad on the i1000 and it covers the main boundaries and if someone was to happen to request a refund and succeed then better for being free lol.

Steve I will have a look at that link later as on the mobile.

Mark, yeah I know lol I haven't changed it since the idiots nicked my car until the police finish the investigation, this way I can show them it ad it was if the date is in question lol.

Sean, I love that theory lol.

I've just added a Mini 0801 Dash Cam from E-Prance with 1080HD in my front windscreen and it seems pretty good so far.
For those of you with Rear facing cams though, have any of you got them mounted behind tinted windows ?

jeebo,

i have the same camera in your orriginal linky.

did you go through the various settings etc to get the best qauilty?

 

i really must bring mine in and check and delete the card as i have mine on continuous loop,think it must be getting full by now as it

struggles to turn off straight away,its as if its trying to rejig itself lol.

 

as for the question from someone above i have the rear camera stuck to my rear hatch glass and its tinted and the playback on the screen is clear as glass lol.

 

im happy with mine perhaps you just got a bad egg??

as for your 2nd camera unless its my lappy but found the playback very notchy.

 

but as a few others have said ANY camera that picks up what it needs is going to better THEN no camera at all.

think whatever camera peeps go for its got to be peace of mind.

OK mini review time ... I have a Mini 0801 dash cam from E-Prance off Amazon ...
It's nice and small and très discreet. 1st pic shows it just to the right of the rearview mirror as you look at the car.
It's easy enough to install and is pretty much a plug in and go like all the others.
Niggles:
1- because of the rain/light sensor in my windscreen for the autowipers and auto headlights i've had to mount it passenger side. Whilst its clear enough recording there is no view of anything coming from the right (such as at a roundabout).
2- the handbook (such as it is) is naff and not great at explaining anything in terms of setting up. Meaning that of I'd left it in default I would still have the GPS logging and not be scratching my head figuring out how to switch it back on.

The viewing program is also hit and miss in terms of whether you get a disc included with it on or not (I didn't). I found a viewer recommended on the t'interweb called DATAKAM PLAYER.
Forgive the bad lighting but basically the camera feed is obviously top left. Under that (when the GPS is switched on) should be a graphical view of speed, and G-Forces during the journey. Top right is a map and again, when the GPS is on it shows you the route and where you are during the video feed on the map. Under the map are the individual journeys.
Overall I think I'd give it an 8/10 - it's less than £100 and probably great as a first camera ... I just need to rethink it's location and figure out the menus again LOL

Was it worth it and how does video quality rank against the samples I put off for this, the gs8000l and the Mobius?
