The G1W Dashcam Review
 
Had some pms about the dashcam i recently installed so i figured i would give a short review of it.

Brand- G1W Dashcam
Price ~$52 shipped
Link - Amazon.com: Blueskysea Original Quality Real Full HD 1080P 1920x1080 H.264 G1W 2.7" LCD Car DVR Camera Recorder Dashboard Dashcam Black Box Video Recorder With G-sensor Night Vision Motion Detection Wide Degree 120 4X Zoom: Car Electronics

These are the 2 vids that convinced me of the purchase..

MY vid...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvlpXjXYeiE

Resolution is 1080p..i have it set to 720 30fps atm. It seemed the vid is in better quality when in 480 rather than 720. At 720p the image looks to be sharpened quite a bit.

Comes with a mount, usb cable,car charger, and hdmi cable. It connects to the usb car charger so the cam turns on whenever the ignition is on. I have the loop recording set to 10 min(a new file created after 10 mins), and screen turns off after 3 min but continues recording. Doesnt have GPS which shows your vehicle speed which i thought could work against you if ever go above the speed limit.

So far, it does the job and is CHEAP.

anytime! it's cheap, set it and let it do its thing and can record some crazy sh*t that happens lol.

Hope the reliability holds up in the long run
