[Best Buy] Geko E100 1080p Dash Camera 8GB microSD $49.99

(Update: This sale is on both of Best Buy online and In Store, same price. so if you see the online OOS, check the store availability)

Geko E100 Full HD 1080p Dash Camera with 1.5" LCD Screen & 8GB microSD


I did not find other thread about this dash cam here. It is a Cyber Monday sale from Bestbuy. I remember their online sale gone very quickly and most of store OOS just after Monday started, but now I saw their online "Limited quantities available" and few in stores.

If you are looking for a cheap but not bad dash cam, I think this one should be one of your choices.

I only found this dash cam on Amazon US website, the customer review is good and their price is $75 USD:

also please check some people's geko dash cam videos, some looks ok but some looks bad (sorry I do not have one myself currently, so please review the dash cam by yourself.),

About to order one but here's the deal breaker.

From the Amazon review, the camera turns itself after 12 seconds. So when you're at a red light, it'll turn off apparently.

Probably turns itself off after 12 seconds when the power source is cut off

Feel free to read the Amazon reviews yourself. It turns off when the car is stopped for 12 seconds like at a stop sign or red light.

Does anyone turn off the car at a red light?

[QUOTE]2. See #10 above – I like the motion sensor and the 12 second delay at stop signs but I’m not crazy about it going into pause during longer stops, like at red lights. I would suggest that they may the pause user-adjustable, and I would set it at about two minutes before auto-pausing.[/QUOTE]

I copied the info from Amazon US site which is about a possible happened issue because there were customers complained the video could not loop automatically, some customers could resolve by re-formatting the SD card, but some could not, here is the answer from Geko team:

I think the issue could be the setting on the G-Sensor. The G-Sensor got too sensitive then your emergency recording files occupied the whole 8GB capacity. So you will get the "card full" message. Do you want to try to set up to 4G or 2G and see if you still experience the same problem? Feel free to contact us at [email protected] or 1-844-9727246 for further support.

I reserved on in (Centre) Laval (north of Montreal). They have nothing on the shelf because of a massive renovation, but the saleslady said they had a ton.

I too was able to reserve one earlier today (Kitchener Fairway Road). I didn't look to see if there was additional stock. Picked it up after work but I haven't had a chance to try it out yet.

note that this dashcash is only rated from -5C to 60C. We have -20C in ontario in the winter... my old g1wh sometimes doesn't start until after 10 minutes of starting the car in the cold months.
