Just cos you think you've lost some fights doesn't mean you will lose the ones in future! Chin up mate, appears to me you're winning so far! I'm 24 and to imagine what you're going through I'd say you're made of stronger stuff!
I really hate going to the GP, recently only been to have tests to rule out IBD/Coeliac disease (IBS is interesting when you're at work >10 hours a day and no guarantee of bathroom facilities!!). Some days good, some bad, medication only works so far!
Going to get me one of these shortly, especially after an incident on Friday. Approaching a slight right hand bend and could see a cyclist coming the other way with a car behind him. The car driver only started to overtake him didn't he? I saw that it was going to be a close thing so foot off throttle and covered brake, applied brake when I figured out he wasn't going to get in front of cyclist safely. He 'just' managed to get in without causing a collision!
How he didn't see me coming I don't know. I was driving a 2.5 metre tall BRIGHT ORANGE Renault truck at the time!!! A quick blast on the airhorns made sure he knew I was there
So a quick question about the Mobius, I have read all/most of the 18 pages so might have missed it, but is there a button to press to save a segment of recording?
Simply press the mode "M" button. Older firmware would just mark the current file as readonly (if the cam had started recording a new file, you could potentially lose the one with the goodness in it. The new firmware will mark both previous and current files if less than 1m in, current if 1m <= time <= 4m and the current and next file if more than 4m in the current file, so you should never lose any footage once the M button is pressed.
Its not limited to police cars - ambulances have this feature too.
Its used to either maintain safety (at an accident scene, lights on) or to ensure patient comfort. The air con (and some cases the heaters) do not work in the back without the engine running - the batteries would be drained in minutes. Otherwise they are able to be kept "alive" or charged by mains power. It also keeps all the equipment charged and ready to go.
As expected, it's basically old webcam quality. Had a lot of noise on the video last night (using the supplied USB car adapter) so I'll get a video today with a better quality one. Large but sturdy and adjustable mount supplied and takes a standard SD card.
I've also noticed two out of four of the ir LEDs are always on - so I'm using insulating tape over them to stop it reflecting off the windscreen.
For £6 I ain't complaining - even if I don't use it in the car its useful to have a camera sensitive to IR (stealth night missions anyone? ;-) )
FYI fuse 108 is the one. Used it today when fitting an autodimming mirror from a mk3 mondeo . switches on when ingnition is on.
Fuse 100 (At least on my Focus) also switches with the ignition. It's the fuse for the electrics (Heater head switches and illumination, heated windscreen/rear window switches/illumination, rain sensor (if fitted), sunroof (if fitted) - looking at the wiring diagrams for the Mk2.5). Used a fuse tap on that today to mod my lighter socket to switch with the ignition.
Made the video un-private... does help doesn't it!
I've got a good few more clips of, lets just say, poor standards of driving. I just don't have the time to put them online! It's really useful from my point of view though, if anything happens I can go back and watch it again!
