better then 90% of the junk out there for sure.

But a lot of people don't have a dashcam at all, and something is better than nothing. If they can spend $10 as a no-brainer and put the crappy dashcam in their car, then at least they would have some record in event of an accident. And maybe they'll have a better idea what they're looking for when they do get around to buying a decent dashcam.

For what it's worth, I've had a non-high endurance 32gb Sandisk in my dashcam for 4 years, drivin daily, and it hasn't had any issues. MicroSD cards just keep on getting cheaper, so I have no qualms about buying a new one if this dies. My only suggestion is to stick with name brands.Exp315 wrote: ↑Apr 27th, 2019 10:38 amMemory cards are pretty much unaffected by temperature. It's the continuous writing in a dashcam that wears out the memory card rapidly, as regular TLC memory is only good for about 1000 writes. Some people buy a "high endurance" microSD card, which typically uses MLC memory for about triple the write cycles. Others just buy a bigger microSD card because that also reduces the number of overwrites.

There's an entire megathread on dashcams in the Automotive discussion section of the forumKenAdams wrote: ↑Apr 27th, 2019 10:59 amLike I said folks, it's a cheap dash cam. Some people can't afford high end cameras.
I couldn't find any "dash cam" info in the forums. So feel free to post any good dash cams that could help people out.
This is what I'm looking at.

I had this dash cam, and it reliable and works. This was the first gen of affordable dash cam available in GTA and sold for about $40. There is nothing wrong with the videos as it will be clear enough who's at fault.

You completely wrong.

But does it really? One of the problems with cheap crappy dashcams is that they often lie outright about the resolution, with the box saying that it's 1080p when it's actually a cheap 480p sensor. Some of them even go so far as to produce a 1080p output file, but a closer look at the actual picture resolution shows that it's scaled up from 480p.

If there is enough interested I could bulk order in group buy fashion and ship it to someone in gta who can arrange a pickup. Anyways I would not bash this cam at all. It works in 720p and 1080p... has motion auto start and off... q min 3 min 5 min and 10 min.66A436E8-7D9F-45B2-B9F6-77C9D6220F0D.jpegFFA16BF0-B3CC-4DE7-95C7-B8B4C401D2C7.jpegB4523960-3559-469C-9C04-AA8017CBC01F.jpeg23CDE5A2-7564-4BC1-8779-FDB47ABF57D9.jpeg
