trouble trying to get SD card updated, as it says to do. Still won’t record to iPhone.

published

trouble trying to get SD card updated, as it says to do. Still won’t record to iPhone. Emailed company several times, as manual doesn’t explain. reply hard to understand. My daughter supposedly upgraded SD card for me, so should work, but doesn’t. Very disappointed. have to return it. Sad, because it would be great if it worked. Don’t like the way it sticks on windscreen the way it does. Keeps coming off.

Cheap but does the job. Technical Support Individual Just Sighs

published

Camera is cheap. Stick on foot cannot be removed from camera so removal and refit of SD card is difficult. Inevitability of leaving greasy hands on windscreen. Technical support plays a big role in any of these cameras. And theirs is also cheap. Brad sighs at every turn as he has to painfully explain to a gen X how to do something that must be automatic with gen Y's. What a pain in the back I must have been.

Never buy a Kapture Webcam

published

What a piece of crap that Kapture make. All I read is how bad all their webcams are and mine is no exception. Already in the bin and will never buy another one again. Save your money and give this company a wide berth

Waste of money

Dashcam is garbage and so is there customer service

published

After spending half a day installing the dashcam neatly in my vehicle I turned it on and worked perfectly until I put an SD card in, and then it would continuously power on and off. Contacted them and after a couple emails suggesting what could be wrong and how to fix it nothing worked. As it was a gift I did not have a receipt to return it and they did not want to help replace their product. AVOID THIS COMPANY!

Runs well with minimum functions in use.

published

Confusing to setup at firsts. But once the cam was set up according to the manual there were problems keeping it running. It crashed constantly so had to disable functions until reduced to camera recording with date and time and 5 minute videos. Motion sensor filled SDcard and would not rewrite so disabled it. But ok as a basic cask cam....

Good value for money for dual dash camera

published

When the camera system works, it's great. However setting up is rather cumbersome. It appears that the housing is not designed for Australian conditions as my case warped in just a few months although the manufacturer has offered a refund if I choose to return it. Images captured from both cameras are pretty good, but nightvision images are not as good as cameradesigned for night vision.

Blue Screen

published

We purchase our dash cam from JB HIfi. It is a good size and looks a quality camera BUT it kept saying card full (purchased with dash cam) and we would get a blue screen. Our son bought same dash cam, same time and had same problems. JB HIfi refunded our purchase without any problems and we purchased a navman, which wouldn’t even turn on, such a disappointment for a well know brand so we got our money back. I have since read where Sandisk SD cards can cause problems in dash cams but we purchased 32 high speed card with camera so we could do no more.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY !!!!

It's rubbish

published

Has never worked. Wouldn't turn on and was a waste of my money. Don't buy this product.
Lost recipes which is my own fault but I would still expect the product to work as described.
It worked once the first time I installed it. And never worked since. Really annoyed. I'll never purchase from this company again.

Too many bugs to recommend

One of the worst

published

One of the worst products I have had. It locks u out so u can't do anything u can't record after a long period of time. The camera ends up locking the sd card so u never really get anything from it besides a headache and a waste of money

Problem after problem

published

The recording function stops during extended use. After 4 months the mount broke. I returned to JB and they replaced it. They could not be more helpful. The new unit now wont pick up / record the video signal from the reward camera. Its rubbish - Id buy anything but one of these units. What is advertised as a simple to set up and easy to use product could not be further from the truth. Returned the nit for a refund.

Operates as it is advertised, happy!

published

This camera was a Christmas gift and is now operating everyday without any obvious problems. Installing was quite simple and the manual seems to cover most of the points discussed in other reviews. The menu is a bit challenging with quite small text, as is the user manual (which possibly needs reading a few times!)
Very happy so far though!

Radio interference from power supply

published

Once I had set up the camera using enclosed instructions I went for a test drive only to find I couldn't listen to the radio due to static noise. Unplugged the power supply and radio came good. Took the power supply back to JB HI FI and they replaced it. Lo and behold, exact same problem. Seems the makers have opted for the cheapest supply they could get. I now use a power supply from another product with no problems at all. Perhaps JB should distance themselves from this company.?

Sorry, cant help you on that! The only thing I can think to do is to reformat the SD card and hope that fixes things

Thanks Mick. My SD card must have been faulty as I couldn't even reformat it to FAT32
So I reset it and put a new sd card, working again.

Hi Helen
If you have the manual, go to step 8.5- language
If not, stop recording and go to menu setting and use the < > up/ down buttons to scroll and you should find the language settings. There is a manual on google if you type in kpt580 Language
