I recently had my brake pads changed at Ford, I have been back twice since to show them the noise but it hasn't done it when on test drive. I showed them the vid so they took it in, took brakes apart, cleaned them and put them back together and it didn't solve it.
It's a very unusual sound, almost like Chewbacca from Star Wars or whales mating!
Sorry guys, been so busy last month I haven't managed to get on here
Just to confirm I still have not received the 808 cam! I have emailed the seller and trying to get refund as it's been to long now. Annoying as I have bought items in past from banggood and they have turned up within 14 days, the tracking info supplied was last updated on 14th June so don't know what's going on with that
I have read through the thread and see you have purchased one of them cameras James, sorry to say you will be disappointed, I was also conned into buying one the footage is not 720P as advertised it's less quality then 480 I'd say. Regardless I complained to ebay and was given full refund, I also left seller bad feedback and he said if I removed it he would refund me again, so I got my money back twice lol
Regarding the 808 cameras on ebay, make sure you are buying the #16, there are so many copies out there, that cheap one for like £4/£6 is again a spy cam and not far in car recording, only the #16 camera comes on when power is applied and vice versa.
The #18 camera I believe is ok but as it was not made by the same people that made the Mobius you cannot configure it as easy. This also answers someone else's question... Yes you can adjust the settings with the same software as the Mobius camera.
Anyway hope this helps some people, I'm still hoping the camera arrives, if it does I'll post the review
This is the camera before they thought about turning it into a dashcam/action cam.
I didn't know mounts were available this is a nice alternative. It's built to be a spy cam so even better at hiding

Yes, the previous versions were designed to be spy cams, but the #16 was designed to turn on when powered, loop record and switch off automatically when power was disconnected. Looking forward to having a play
It's a 720P camera designed by the chaps who made the Mobius which I already have in the front of the car. I didn't want to spend £40+ for the rear as it's not as important but 720P will capture what I need.
There are 3 lens types: A, B and D (not a C)
I have ordered a lens D as it has the most wide angle, difference between the 3 can be seen in post below
Loop recording needs to be turned on to continue recording once memory card is full. Another thing that might be the cause is the time/date change.
There is one file on my dashcam that is really old that the camera does not delete it, I think that is because the camera does not recognise it, there is a list of created files and on that list the oldest is deleted but what if the date or time has been changed? Is it not possible some of those files may no longer be on list? Since a new record may begin from that date or time excluding files already on the cam hence filling up the card, it seems like a reasonable cause for my mobius

That one file may be not getting overwritten because you might of pressed the mode button on your Mobius while it was filming.
Pressing mode button keeps the current file, call it a SOS button say for example something happened at that moment and you wanted to keep the footage.
Class 10 is the better card as it allows for full HD recording where class 4 only goes up to 720p... The other benefit with class 10 cards is much faster read and write speeds!
Not true, total myth when it comes to dash cams
Taken from manual:
Generally speaking you may use any micro SD, micro SDHC or Micro SDXC card with a capacity of up to 64GB with this camera. Larger cards are most likely also supported but not yet available. To avoid card compatibility problems, always use quality cards with a speed rating of Class 4. There are known problems with a few cards that have a higher class rating, for example some, but not all, Sandisk 32GB Ultra (class 10) will not work properly with earlier firmware versions. You should use firmware v1.17 or above with these cards. For the best compatibility use cards with a class 4 rating if you have them. There is absolutely no advantage in using cards with a higher rating. The most compatible cards are genuine Kingston.
The camera supports cards formatted with FAT, FAT32 or exFAT. Due to technical reasons, you cannot update the firmware if your card is formatted as exFAT. When using the In-Camera formatting routine (see below) cards with a capacity greater than 32GB will be formatted with exFAT. All other cards will be formatted as FAT/FAT32. Older operating systems, for example XP 64-Bit and Windows 2003, do not support exFAT file systems unless you install additional drivers. A list of exFAT drivers can be found at http://search.micros...spx?q=KB955704.
There are a few programs available, for example guiformat, that are capable of formatting large capacity cards with FAT32. This is not recommended and may void your card's warranty.
►You should always use cards from well known brands. Low quality and no-
name cards, as well as some class 2 (or less) cards, may draw more than 20mA current than quality cards. This can result in unwanted electrical noise such as clicks, chirps, hum and buzzing in the audio recording
