For the price, this camera was very disappointing. The quality of the picture was very wavy and low resolution. There is no viewing screen to see what the camera is recording so the positioning is a matter of guess work. The printing in the User Manual is so small that I couldn't read it with even a magnifying glass. I had to download the PDF file from their site to see how it worked. Since the camera supposedly accepts up to a 32 GB SD card and the company only sells a 8 or 16 GB card is somewhat bewildering. The operations are a little mystifying, especially the settings, I had to spend about an hour to get comfortable with how that worked. For about 1/3 the price there are several cameras available elsewhere that get better ratings than I would give this one.
Apparently this site doesn't accept anything less than a 5 star ratings. I got this to post only after changing from a 2 to a 5. Site kept blaming it on a unmatched security code...
PROS: It works
Automatically turns on and off when plugged into the DC outlet.
CONS: Lack of viewing screen.
Nuisance of having to plug it into a tv or computer to view anything.
Low res/quality of display
Terrible User Manual
BOTTOM LINE: I would not but another one, one mistake is enough

this dash cam is the best thing ever happened to me-it is not made cheap it is quality all the way what surprised me was-- the suction cup to hold it to the dash i think the windshield would break first before you could pull it loose-records-great & even a dummy could install it. I totally recommend it. Great Product..
BOTTOM LINE: I totally recommend it. Great Product

Nice product, takes nice footage during the day and night, night time shooting is impressive. Took me a little while to figure out how to use it, called support like they were very friendly and helpful. ..
PROS: Take nice footage, tech support helpful, great price.
CONS: None I see yet.
BOTTOM LINE: Great unit we use it on some of our trucks and I the angle of the video is really nice captures everything the driver can\'t even see which is great.

I bought my zDrive-i over a month ago, and it's working just fine. Although the cigaret lighter charger went south after about 2 weeks, it was promptly replaced by the company. I use it all the time driving the car...
PROS: Good resolution, day or night, nice wide angle recording. Simple to use.
CONS: Had some difficulty changing the time and date. Connected to my computer and was unable to open the time set menu. Only after connecting it to my computer i was able to change the time and date.
BOTTOM LINE: I recommend this for anyone wanting an easy to use camera. Very satisfied.
