    Cowon AW1 keeps failing


    I purchased this unit new with my car and after 8 months it died. Had it replaced under warranty and now my second unit has died. Even when they were working they were somewhat unreliable. I would not recommend spending your money on this unit. I am now looking for alternative brands.

    Overheats every day


    Had this installed with a new vehicle purchased.

    Ideally to record a vehicle hitting my vehicle and leaving. Sadly the Cowon overheats almsot every single day in Australia.

    When I return to my car after work it will take 10 to 15 minutes for it to sufficiently cool down to begin working again.
    Often I have returned home before it is recording.

    The Quality of the video when it is recording is good and sound is captured.
    For the price we paid there are better options.

    this one is really handy and nice look. I've installed this in my car for 1 year and half. I never had a problem with this one. In summer, the unit gets a bit hot, but no issue after all.

    Hi, my dash camera is saying “unable to read memory card” I tried to format it but after I re-inserted the card the error message “not recording properly” appeared.. or something like that and then it reverts back to “cannot read memory card”. How can I fix this?
