Has anyone tried the ones priced on aliexpress? Are they useless?
Here is a sample:

My bro has this one, image quality is good, and it's a neat device. He didn't manage to get the rear camera working, he thinks the connection is funny, but admitted it could have been his fault when wiring it. Worth a punt i reckon. Much smaller than a lot of the others on that site anyway.

I use a Dod GSE550, it has built in GPS and G-force sensors. So when you playback the video's it links to google maps and you can follow your route, its also displays speed. In the event of crash the g-force sensors detect it and save that section of video so that it cant be overwritten. It looks pretty smart too.
Now the problems, it's a bitch to set up. There's a built in battery which is absolutely rubbish, without being plugged in I get maybe 20 secs of power. And it freezes all the time, I need to reset it and format the memory card about once a week. And it's pricey enough too, I think I paid about E250-300

Its actually only $130 on amazon now....that's depressing, I would recommend it at that price.

Bought it.
Use it.
Can recommend it.
The link above is now showing the wrong cameras, so here is a new link to the dashcam I have;

The reason the prices for these units has crept up is because Itronics have apparently clamped down on unauthorised sellers on ebay.
Great, cheers.

I am creating this dash cam merge for more technical discussion. For newbies and cam operators alike.
Hopefully this will have more signal and less noise than the other thread.

Hence only post if you are committed to buying and have questions, general chat will be removed.

The links I have previously posted to the ITRONICS ITB-100HD on Ebay inevitably time out,so here is a permanent link to this dashcam;

BTW,it is worth noting that Itronics have an updated version of this one on the market now too.Here is a review of the Itronics ITB-100HD SP (the new version);

randy, I see it says a "reminder to format the sd card twice a week" as a feature of the new model? I've never formatted the SD card, do you do it regularly and if so, why?

When I take the SD card out to upload a particular piece of footage to my computer, I always wipe/reformat the card.
The cam tends to beep for a while the last few times,- I think this might have to do with the age of the SD card though,but this can be sorted out by powering off for about ten seconds.

You've just reminded me,I've been meaning to get another 32GB card from Amazon to keep as a backup.-Thanks Cormie!
