I have this one, it was on sale for 199 at the time however. I'm sure you could find it somewhere for that price.

Ended up getting one for my brother too.

It may be best to go directly through the manufacturer or be sure you're dealing with a licensed distributor. Some manufacturers won't honour warranties if you buy from some unaffiliated 3rd party. Escort Radar has a vast list of "who not to buy from". Some auto parts sites too.

Ojocam is the manufacturer. I bought it directly from them.

Had my AUTO-VOX A118C w/ a 32GB Transcend High Endurance micro SD card for almost a year now. Installed it, and haven't had a single problem yet.

Hows the resolution on captured video? Easy to read plates?

I'll be buying this one shortly: https://www.amazon.ca/Official-VIOFO.../dp/B01N1NZ2GH It is well reviewed and I like that when installed with the GPS, it acts like a dock. So its easy to throw it in the glove box to prevent break and enters.

Usually depends on how the weather is. Good on sunny days, but I'll always read the license plate out loud if anything happens as a precaution.

Using Viofo A119, no complain. Good video quality and good price.

I have that one in one of my cars and this one in my other:

Both work pretty good but the Vicovation Marcus 3 is much better especially in capturing detail at night.

I have this one also, and I always recommend it to anyone looking for a dash cam. Not a single issue with it. Crystal clear. Easy to use. Highly recommend this one.

My Black Box G1W, dashcam crapped out after about 2 years. I am using a DodoTech LS460W and it's been great, very clear video.



Video from my drive to Red Deer on Friday, rather inclement weather... and bad drivers....


The camera mount I am using rattles, I have tried to fix it...

Any recommendations if my top priority is a good back up camera, but would like dash cam feature as bonus?

I use an A118c like some people do. An A119 is a good choice too, but the 118 goes on sale every now and then with a card on amazon for <$100 (which it should, its not a new option at all). I prefer how it mounts, suction cups are jittery and bump around, and the 118 just looks in place when its all installed properly and hardwired to run with the vehicle. 1080p is easily enough, unfortunately it does 1080p @30fps, 60fps would be nice but again you may run into bitrate and write limitations depending on the equipment.

I'm unsure what you mean by a back up camera with dash cam features? you can't get that together. You can get front and rearview dash cams as though, but I'm not sure I see a ton of need for rear view

I own the Anker ROAV C1.

I did an unboxing and install of it. There's also footage.

The app is the best part. I just hit the wifi button, link up to my phone and I can watch video playback. I can also download and pick specific videos if they activated the park assist or were marked as "saved" due to a sudden jolt.
