Also wondering if there is a way to simultaneously use the cigarette lighter/ charger for something else such as charging a mobile.

Try the drive pro 200. Much more features and Vfm IMO. Trades at around 10k on Amazon India. It's little cheaper here for around 70 euros. The most imp difference between 100 and 200 is the additional 30sec back up recording it provides inspite of a complete power loss in the event of an incident. Captures those most important moments. Worth completely.

If I am not mistaken it's the DP 100 that has a battery/capacitor and not DP 200.

DP 100 info: http:// http://www.transcend-info.com/Products/No-675

DP 200 info: http://www.transcend-info.com/Products/No-498

But there still seems to be a bit of confusion on that issue. The comparison table shows that all dashcams by Transcend have a battery/capacitor. http://www.transcend-info.com/PR/eve...on_cvr_en.html. The review by Eds draft on YouTube however clearly shows the DP 100's battery/capacitor in action.

If on a long journey or a continuous drive, will the above record it continuously or may be in parts without losing any details ..

Transcend dashcams record the video in files of 1/3/5 minutes (depending on your choice). That means that your entire journey of let's say an hour will get recorded in multiple segments/files of 1/3/5 minutes. They have an SD card slot (a 16GB/32GB card is included in the box). When the card gets full the oldest file gets deleted on its own. We can also change the video resolution so that more video can get stored. Other alternative is to put a bigger capacity SD card.

Check the Scorpio ownership thread of member joy bhowmik where he has explained diff between both 100 and 200 series clearly. That should give you a fair idea.

The following is from Joy's thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ml#post3798753 (Raging Red Rover (R3) - My Mahindra Scorpio S10 4x4)


I chose the Transcend DrivePro 220 on Monday September 21 , for a very expensive ₹ 11,275 from Snapdeal. It includes the camera , a mount , and a Transcend micro SDHC Class 10 16 GB card. Why did I make this choice? The nearest contender was the Transcend DrivePro 200, available for ₹ 9,399.00 at Amazon. But the 200 has a capacitive energy storage, good for only 1/3rd the 30 second window the 220 gets in the unfortunate event that mains power is interrupted. Besides the 200 keeps losing its time settings. I figured an extra 20 seconds of memory card write time, in the event of a catastrophic event, is welcome. Besides the 220 has GPS built in, so it will be hopefully useful when concocting a map+video view of future drives. The other bells and whistles such as lane departure and forward collision warning, are just that. I cannot be bothered with features meant for a more civilized market - not while I still call India my home.


Seems like he was choosing between DP 220 and DP 200. I was choosing between DP 200 and DP 100. Anyways one thing is clear that DP 200 doesn't have a proper battery. If we don't use it for 4 days then we need to reset the time and date (learnt about this from couple of YouTube reviews). Too much of a bother. I went for the DP 100. It has a proper battery. Suits my current needs. DP 220's GPS is good but I think the photographs and videos should serve more than enough of an evidence in case of an unfortunate incident.

Aren't we allowed in the workshop?
Most bike workshops don't mind. The Honda service guy told me to wait in the customer lounge claiming customers not allowed in the workshop..

Even the Honda dealership here has a notice fixed on the wall that customers are not allowed inside the workshop but we have always gone there, so have many others, and we haven't been stopped or sent back till date.

I didn't see any such notice here. And I can't see anything from the customer lounge as there's another car right beside mine that's blocking the view.

After one failed repair I'm not so trusting of these guys anymore so I wanna see the repairs myself this time.

Sorry, I think I messed up. It was 220 which I was referring to and not 200. I have read few reviews and it is an excellent product it seems. Do let us know what you finally went with.

They are right about it. Even in Bangalore service centres also they won't allow you unless they voluntarily want you to see something. This is mainly due to the fact that there are lot customer cars kept there which are their responsibility until it's with them. They don't want any unauthorised personnel to come in and simply move around and have a risk of missing parts or the customers hurting themselves. I don't see any other reason.

You may not be allowed to stand there the entire time till they work on your car but you can have a casual look every now and then when they are working. It also depends on the relation you hold with your SA, he makes me usually wait in the lounge but if I want to have a look at my car I am never stopped from going on the work-floor.

Actually I like to supervise when they are cleaning the car in the end. They do a good job even if left alone but when I stand there, my car leaves much cleaner than the others.

Couple of weeks back, I had been to Crystal Honda, Bavdhan, Pune for 1st free service of my 1.2 i-vtec Jazz VX. Even I was asked to have a look at my car from lounge area, but I insisted on having a look upclose when needed and quoted that Maruti never stopped me from visiting. He agreed to it and I went upto my car at couple of time especially when it was jacked up to have a closer look below. Its just that they don't allow you to stay for long overlooking the work.

I have one observation with my Jazz, front disc brakes squeal on putting a light foot on brake pedal, but when pressed hard there's no such noise. Higlighted to SA upon which they scrubbed the brake pads, but still on test drive it squealed again. SA told that few Jazz customers have raised this concern and they have informed Honda as well. Honda replied to Dealer saying, just scrub/clean brake pads and nothing else.

Has anyone here faced similar problem? I have completed 2000 kms and still the brakes squeal on gentle to moderate application of brake pedal.
