About a year ago I got this dash cam and have found it to be everything you would expect a non-brand name $25 dash camera to be. 🙂
First of all… it is in NO WAY high definition! I can’t believe it’s even legal for them to put “HD” on the box or in the ad., but, whatever… I really didn’t expect much for the money.
Now having said that, I am generally pleased with this camera!
But, one problem is it “resets” often enough (and for no reason), so the date/time stamp kept dropping back to January 1, 2000 at midnight. I just gave up on that function and turned it off. I drive with it recording audio and simply call out the time and date if I see something of interest that way I have it on record.
Same with recording license plates. Sometimes if I’m parked or stopped directly behind a car, I can read the plate when I review the video, but 99.99% of the time I read the plate out loud and save it that way.
The “rechargeable” battery doesn’t. At least not after a few months of use, therefore I simply keep it plugged into the cigarette lighter all the time. No problem.
Dirty Trick Contest…
I am giving away the dash camera I reviewed in the video!
I am creating a product full of dirty tricks that cops, Private Investigators, repo agents, bounty hunters, etc. have used (hopefully only in the ol’ days). Don’t use any of the dirty trick I teach you! (However… I am planning on a section of Ethical Dirty Tricks you CAN use, but… DO NOT use the others.)
Anyway, here’s the deal… Send me a dirty trick you’ve seen used or have heard about. Send it to the email address in the video (at the 6:23 time mark). I will pick a winner at random and send you the dash cam and my booklet on finding unlisted and cell phone numbers.
Behind the scenes note: The $19.95 booklet (my free gift to the winner) was actually BANNED on a major internet selling site! No Kidding! They said it might violate people’s privacy… then they let hackers have hundreds of millions of user names, DOB’s, addresses, etc.!
I’m looking forward to your contribution to the collection of dirty tricks, so send it in right away!
CONTEST ENDS SEPTEMBER 1, 2014. Don’t miss out!
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
Committed to your success as a Private Investigator,
