Just reporting back here. A while ago, I mentioned here that the right angled cable I bought from the Chinese seller (which a few of you also bought) was causing problems. (I was probably just unlikely to receive a faulty one, as nobody else has had any problems it seems.) So I ordered the cable and 5V adaptor from the dash cam seller, and since it's been working perfectly, no more random failures while recording anymore.
For the record, I chose the cigarette lighter method - ran the cabling across underneath the sun-visor, into the A-Pillar, across underneath the foot-well, behind the center console plastic, and out almost exactly where the cigarette lighter is. From the outside of the car, it is impossible to see any wiring, except for the bit of the cable connected to the back of the dash cam of course.
I've been recording for quite some time now, I am yet to come across any really crazy/foolish examples of driving - though I suppose that's a good thing!!
Before making my purchase i did months of research i considered many cameras and i also watched alot of youtube videos. Techmoan is the best and most reliable none bias youtube reviewer with dashcams on the internet, he review many cameras and all his reviews show what a camera is capable of in the most important conditions, direct sunlight, night time, and daytime/cloudy.
Most dashcams wash out in direct sunlight where a large white blurry patch appears others have random colour changes the mobius does none of that, it auto adjust to light very quickly.
Watch my daytime video below, from the 2:00 marker you can see exactly what direct sunlight looks like, as james said it is possible to improve direct sunlight by manually adjusting it, i left mine standard, that being said finding a camera beating that sort of video quality in direct sunlight is almost impossible regardless of how much you're willing to spend., reading number plates seem to be one of the hardest jobs for a dashcam, if your own eyes cannot read a number plate in direct sunlight the mobius or any other cam stands no chance sadly.
Good point. I thought that adjusting the settings would help more, but in the past tweaking it didn't seem to help.
My cam behaves similarly to yours as shown in the video. If you notice, you cannot make out the number plate of the scummy Corsa driver until the cars (and thus the camera) enters the shade.
To all those with the Mobius (and maybe other dashcams in general) - do you find that when driving facing sunlight, you can't read any number plates or see any proper details because it focuses on the sunlight?
Apparently there is a new firmware update, don't know if that's improved things?
