There are descriptive pictures towards the bottom of the page.

Will be buying a few more of this soon.

One more that I might be picking up is:

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Full-...224124791.html

This is an Android powered one.
Have you installed the dashcam? How's the recording quality? A video would be helpful, if you have saved any

Going through Aliexpress I also came upon this http://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-7...208.3.2.V5Ichw

Has anyone used this? It's supposed to run IGO software

Cheers !

I tested the Blaupunkt. There is no such issue like yours. The FM reception is perfect, no issues with central locking either.

I did a comparative study between Transcend Drivepro220 and Blaupunkt. Due to network issues, I'm unable to load videos but am attaching snapshots. I must say, Transcend wins hands down. Thankfully I had ordered only 2 Blaupunkt's which later can be used in rear once I get another Drivepro220. Transcend is the best although costly. The Blaupunkt is not that clear especially in reading vehicle numbers.

Transcend's pros & cons-
+ Clarity
+ Good wide angle coverage
+ Consumes lesser space for even FHD videos when compared to Blaupunkt.
+ Ability to take snapshots while recording videos.
+ GPS/ Forward collision warning/ Lane departure warning/ Speed alarm
+Better suction cup.

- Cannot switch off display while on move
- No battery, works on capacitor(Drivepro200 has a battery) but this is not a big issue.

Blaupunkt's pros & cons-
+ Can switch off display

- Clarity/ Angle coverage
- Basically most of pros of Transcend.


I will upload videos when I can. 1st image is Blaupunkt's FHD recording, 2nd from its 720p recording and 3rd from Transcend's FHD.

Hope this helps.

Disclaimer:- I'm in no way related to Transcend or Blaupunkt in any way.

I noticed one more thing. The FM reception interference is only when it is plugged on 12V socket not otherwise.

Hi BoneCollector , thanks for the comparison. On the Blaupunkt do we have any sort of focus option? Also how is the 1080p recording.

I will try to upload videos today, taken from Transcend as well as Blaupunkt. Hopefully that will answer your query.

I use a separate 12V socket installed inside my glovebox. No issues with it. You can find the details in this post.

Another thing I noticed regarding Blaupunkt is that the suction cup has a larger area still it fits the edge of IRVM. Many people had complaint that it was falling off when stuck on windscreen. I had it stuck on my IRVM for 3 days, it did not come off. I think its more to do with the curved surface of windscreen and larger surface area of suction cup leading to loosening.

Sorry, I have DP200, and it has capacitor not battery. It is in fact better since there is no chance of battery heating up. Also in another thread I mentioned that the clock does not reset even after one week of being kept off.

Blaupunkt has a 300mA battery, not sure about the type. Someone has already posted its details a few pages back. I have not checked regarding how much time it works on battery.

Anybody has info on the K1S dash cam availability and price in India.



It is a dual cam with separate module and has pretty good when it comes to features.

There is a frequency setting in the Main Menu
Try playing with that and see if it helps
I am not sure what this frequency is used for

When you do decide on a camera try out something that has the Ambarella chipset, which is supposedly the best among the cheap ones available on aliexpress. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/G90-c...963735531.html

@SunnyBoi, did you format the card before using? If so, what format did you use? I am unable to get my unit to read a similar 64GB card.

Thanks,

CDM
