Same case with me, I have not used the Suction Mount yet

 

How did you install without suction mount on the glass? 

I'm planning to stick using a 3M tape, but I'm not sure if it will leave marks on the windshield.

I have got a same tape / glue type sticky to the mount that I have got with the cam! thats so strong that the cam / mount did not move so far. It has been few months now, I am not sure of the material that is used in that sticker, will refer to the Dashcam box and let you know if I find a clue

Thx fir sharing such a in depth review. I would like to add few points.  Night video quality must be excellent too. Also nobody has time to arrange for laptop to play footage, at that time dash camera having decent screen and inbuilt speaker would be good. 

 

Also, imagine someone overtaking from wrong side and collides from behind, Front camera will have no evidence. Here comes the importance of rear recording. 

You may search dual recording on Google.

I m personally using this from link

 

It has all above features just in ₹8500.

 

Have a safe driving friends m

Thanks buddy for sharing this info. I have been using the dash cam for over an year now and its very helpful. I have been successful in sharing the pics with traffic police via whatsapp too.

 

I did enough research before I bought one and planning to pick a new one (pref. EKEN H9R or FITFORT). My suggestion for others who plan to buy... buy one with 170 degrees wide angle with loop recording. Rest all is secondary.

That's great job @Sai Vardhan. Appreciate it. Any particular sources or trusted online stores to buy the above mentioned brands?

Hi Sagar,

 

     I looked at banggood.com for EKEN H9R and it has 2 models priced around 3500 & 5500. Haven't done the comparison so far but will do it shortly. It's available at amazon.com for about USD 60+

The other one, FITFORT is also from Amazon.com for about USD 60+

 

I look at the number of people giving the ratings and what the rating is before buying. Both these are at 4.5/5.

 

If you know someone traveling from US then you can order it. If you have to look at buying from India only then you can look at Procus Rush 4k action camara (rated 4/5) available at amazon.in for 5500/-.

 

To add further... the ones I mentioned can be used as regular 4k cams and not limited to Dash Cams.

But the out wont be fruitful.
We can't mix the usage of dash cam and regular cam.
They are made for different purposes.

Hi Ranger,

 

  Unless you are professional photographer then these are no way in comparison.

 

Dash cams are also available for about 2k and 99% of then work good in day time but they become hopeless in night time ( I'll share the pics & videos from my dash cam and difference between day & night).

 

The ones I mentioned above are action cams... They can be used for regular video capturing as well as dash cam.

Hi Sachin,

 

   I looked at the night time video...looks neat but then 8K+ for the dash cam... I feel that's way too much.

Hi Sai Vardhan Bro,

I am using it from last few months and I am satisfied with quality. I find price reasonable after doing R&D about other models of Transcend, HP, Garmin. This dash cam seems costly but it has:

1) Rear Camera which records simultaneously as well as assist in parking. Not present in Transcend, HP.

2) Comes with Free OBD Cable worth Rs. 1200, USB cable and USB adaptor. 

3) 1 year replacement warranty. (Transcend says warranty void in high temperature. All covers only manufacturing defect)

4) Field of View is huge 170 degree compared to cheap models. ( Others has 130-150 degree)

5) Night quality excellent.

6) Inbuilt 4 inch IP Full HD Screen to play the video on the spot. Transcend, HP has small screen with low resolution. 

7) Price is just Rs. 8500 which is much less than Base models of Transcend, HP, Garmin.

8) 15 days money return guarantee they say (verify before buying)

 

I hope I didn't sound like the marketing executive of that brand & I request moderator not to block me. It's just my personal experience, I wish everyone use good quality dash camera to stay safe from Court Cases.

Hi Sachin,

 

   Features sound good. If you dont mind, I would like to have a look at your dash cam when we get a chance to meet up in person :)

Cases of Accident from behind increasing. At that time, front camera will have no record. Only rear camera will show the truth of wrong side overtaking, bike driver talking on mobile etc.

 

Well...I'll say... you should not worry about the back side. I go with the funda ... when some one crashed into you from back for most of the reason it is his fault and not ours... Simple rule... need to maintain distance with the vehicle in front. I may be wrong but that's how I follow :)

 

I had so many cases where 2 wheelers banging into my back bumper.

Action cam  should not be used a dash cam.

They are designed for different purposes. 

 

Dash cam has a small battery, so that I won't generate heat during a continuous drive.
Action cam has a bigger battery, it is designed to work on longer stretches without any power supply. 

Action cam is not designed to take continuous power input, Imagine using an action for 20 hours in a single stretch. 
It will simply give up in a long run and can be dangerous too.

I'm using YI from the past two years.
Performance is flawless. 

It is cheap and night vision is excellent. 

Only issue with YI? Inconsistent suction mount.
Many people are using 3M tape instead of suction mount.

I do not have this issue with Suction Mount too along with it's flawless functioning (Except for 3 Minute Video Recording ? ) and I remember I promised you that I will get back to you with details or any clue on which Glue has been used, I remember taking out that plaster while I have stuck it to my car! I am sure it was 3M, let me check and get back! I got this Dash Cam by YI from the USA.

Hi All,
 

I came across Xiaomi Rear view mirror with dash cam recorder. 

Launch date : June 16th

Price : CYN 399, roughly translates to 4k INR

1516323531056463493.jpg

 

1516323531895607102.jpg

 

Features:

  • Sony IMX323 image sensor with 160 degree wide angle view(with f1.8, helps in low light)
  • 5inch IPS display
  • Voice controls
  • Parking monitor
  • Ability to record both sides
  • Micro SD card support upto 64GB
  • Is wifi enabled and supports  Mijia App

This is a newly launched version, previously there is a similar device called "70 steps" which has 135 degree view.

 

I feel like this is the one stop solution for all the issues.

Im planning to buy it. 
 

Any inputs and suggestions on this version? 

 

Small video

 

Hoping to get full reviews by this weekend.

Thank you for sharing karthik.

 

Looks very good.

Couldn't find any reviews online.

I don't think they will launch in India?

Gearbest or Alibaba is the only way to buy these stuff.

 

Any idea if it supports mobile connectivity like streaming music and maps?

 

Now I feel like upgrading to this dash cam ?

Now that I have just unwrapped this, it’s time for me to get this fixed. I just realised that the suction mount is missing in the box.

Can somebody suggest me where can I get the suction mount in Hyderabad for this as I couldn’t find it in the box.  

Or ordering it online is the only option ? ?

Ouch,

I guess it will be difficult to source the suction mount.
Try AliExpress.

 

Or you can do some jugad with regular mount using 3M tape, which is not recommend(worst case scenario)

You can ask the seller to ship the mount?

    • Hyderabad to Gottamgutta, A short weekend getaway..
      Distance: 120 kms.  Road condition: Excellent (upto Zaheerabad) You divert from the highway towards Chincholi forest reserve near the Mahindra factory exit. The road is a single lane road and through the farms. 
        We started from Miyapur around 7 AM in 3 cars. Packed all the food and water. 
      Note: Be sure to carry your shoes as there would be a short trek to reach the banks of the lake. 
      I will let the pictures do the talking.   The road towards the Chincholi forest after getting down the NH 65

      The weather was good as the sun shone gently on us that morning


      The entry gate of the Chincholi forest was very welcome


      Though it was a mud track beyond the gate, the drive was smooth and fun.

       
      The track will is pretty narrow to just fit in 1 car at a time



      Our first pit stop was a small temple enroute amidst the Chincholi forest

    • Road trip in Electric Vehicle, San Francisco to Los Angeles
      Sharing a road trip experience in Tesla, will be update this log on daily basis(Three days trip). 
      This is not a leisure travel, We had to go on a work trip from SF to LA.
      I will be sharing road trip experience in EV with Pros and Cons when compared with ICE cars.

       
      Car Specifications:
      Range: 600 kilometers per charge (EPA) 0-100: 3.8 Seconds Top speed is limited to 250km/hr  Supports upto Level-3 charging : 250KW/hr Will be sharing more information on Tesla Super chargers in the upcoming posts  
      A day before the trip
       
      Planning:
      Road trips in electric cars need some planning when compared to traditional(ICE) cars. 
       
      STEP 1: 
      You can use Tesla website to plan your trip, Select the car that you are planning to take on a drive Check out the website for fun : https://www.tesla.com/trips SF to LA has close to 10+ Tesla super chargers(Distance : 600+ kilometers)
       
      STEP 2: 
      Calculate total charging time required, you can check Tesla website to understand your trip plan Total charging time required on a 616 kilometers trip is 55 minutes Details given above are in ideal conditions: 90% charge before you start, follow speed limits, no opposite wind, no cold weather(below 0C), no snow storm etc In real world, range varies, this is similar to our ARAI mileage Tesla calculates/displays range based on EPA(ARAI), add 15~20% range error All the Tesla Chargers are located close to some of the best food courts/restrooms  Total saving for the trip when compared with gas cars is 52$

      Hi all,
      I wanted to create the list of states re-imposing e-pass requirements to travel, including  by road.
      Here's what I found. Please add to the list and also once it is lifted, please update the thread.
      I hope it will be helpful

      All passengers coming by road and by flight to Tamil Nadu need an e-pass, the state government has decided, in a slew of new rules for domestic and international passengers coming to the state.
