Jury is still out on this. I have tried to enter the setup menu but am not able. I mounted the device in my vehicle and was able to capture multiple 1 minute clips. When I tried to play back on the HD player supplied with the device, none of the MOV's would play so, no GPS Google Maps tracking or other data is available. I was able to watch the MOV's via another media player on the compter but, again, no other data (except for the date/time, lat/long stamped in the upper left). There is also a frequent "beep" coming from the device while recording. Nothing in the literature mentions this. IF i can get into the menu to set up the device to my liking maybe there will be a way to disable the audible beeping. Maybe I have a defective unit or battery issue with the remote...

PROS: Small device, excellent MOV's

CONS: User manual sucks. No instruction how to access the menu.

BOTTOM LINE: I thought it would be a good plan to have a compact device without a display. Maybe I was wrong.

So far I'm pretty happy with this unit. The manual could be a little bigger and the illustrations don't exactly match the camera I received...but it's close. Multiple readings have gotten me to the point where I pretty much understand things. One thing...when I attempt to use the built-in player I get an error. So I view the files using Windows Media Player. I'd really like to see a unit that uses wifi with an app so I can playback movies via my Iphone...that would be awesome...I'd buy that in a heartbeat...

PROS: Good picture quality on playback. Nighttime video not bad, either.

CONS: Manual is small like 3" x 4"...I'm an old guy so kinda hard to read...illustrations could be a little bigger...

BOTTOM LINE: For a couple of hundred bucks...u can't go wrong with this...

This is my second camera of this type purchased for my wife's car. It is super easy to setup once the mini usb is connected to the USB port and the video ports on LED TV. Battery used in the remote was good. Remote is used to setup camera and move thru the menue. This one was already pretty much setup. Only had to setup date and time. Picture quality is first rate. Color is beautiful. Sound is great...

PROS: Small size Picture quality Xtreme wide angle Easy setup Date, Time, and speed stamp on video. Documents your speed if you need to contest a ticket The unit is black. No visible brand names which is a big plus. Reliable Strong Good telephone support available if you need help setting up camera. The windshield mount is solid, movable, and stays in place till you want to move it. It is far superior to the glue to windshield mounts of other cameras.

CONS: A mini SD card is not included.

BOTTOM LINE: Buy, Buy, Buy! But don't buy them all because I will probably want another one. Make sure you use the discount code on their online store. It can save you some money.

A great cam for a good price. This camera is a little more expensive than others out there but the quality is significantly higher. A great piture. Small size. 12 megipixel camera with 1080P. Wide angle lense. Accept up to 32 gb SD cards...

PROS: Picture quality Sound recording Small Size Wide angle Up to 32 gb mini SD cards Vehicle speed and Time and Date recorded on video. More than adequate windshield mount

CONS: User manual is useless and in my opinion lacking in what you need to know to setup camera.

BOTTOM LINE: Five stars
