rubbish / won;t last.
purchased this dash cam twelve months ago and set up not to hard , worked fine until warranty run out ( ten days over ) ,sent company email stating this unit keeps asking me to reset factory settings , tried every thing to resolve , still same , rang company and seem not to be interested , stated will take a look if i send the unit to them at my expense as a good will offer , jb hi fi very good with the whole process , not their fault they only sell them , the importer should accept this item to be returned to place of purchase and exchange a...nd take responsibility for their product , willing to take my money , but better if i throw it in rubbish bin as any repair or replacement will be the same crappy quality and have the same problem , not worth the money as this is cheap Chinese crap and will always have problems no matter how many are replaced under warranty , same rubbish .
Purchased in November 2019 for $169.00.
Cheap but does the job. Technical Support Individual Just Sighs
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.
Purchased in January 2020 at JBHIFI for $239.00.
Runs well with minimum functions in use.
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
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.

Too many bugs to recommend
When this unit works, it works fine. However, the whole point of having a dash cam is so that it will record when it needs to. Then unit has a swathe of issues that make it incapable of being relied upon in a critical situation.
1: The rear camera often fails to record, or records a corrupted file.
2: The camera will often turn on when the ignition is switched on, then turn off as you start the engine, resulting in a need to turn it back on again.
3: It will randomly fail to record when in 5 minute loop mode.
4: It will some timer go into ...
Radio interference from power supply
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.?
Not so bad now I found what's wrong
I recently left a bad review of this dash cam because after a few months of use, it started powering off and on repeatedly. I have just discovered the cause - it's the car-charger that supplies the power to the camera. I have found the same fault on another car charger that had been used for a while. Evidently these chargers don't last too long. So it wasn't the dash cam itself that was faulty. Some other people have reported the off/on fault, not only with this brand, so it's evidently quite common. However, the fault with the night vision (L...EDS don't illuminate the scene at night) also reported by other users still needs to be pointed out. Apart from the defective night vision, I have to say it worked rather well. You have to familiarise yourself with the menus/operation, but once you've got that sorted, it's quite good (at least I found it was)
Has some bugs!
This camera looks good, takes great videos, night time recording is not too bad. Has great features like loop recording, full hd video, rear camera, parking sensor, motion sensor, automatic startup on car start. But there are definitely some bugs in the software. If you set off the motion sensor or the parking sensor when you get in the car, it starts recording in that mode which turns off after 30 secs or so. So when you start up your car and drive off you think its recording but its not. If the recording is triggered by the car engine start ...then things are fine and it keeps recording until the engine is switched off. At the moment I have turned the motion and parking sensors off to make sure its recording while driving which is more important.
Questions & Answers
Why doesn't my rear camera work please anyone. Cheers.
I am after a windscreen mount for my kpt722. It was left in our old car
I bought a KPT-722 from JB HiFi in 2018. It has just started making a high pitched beep every 2 seconds and the triple lights on either side of the lens come on as it beeps. I disconnected it but it kept on doing this for 20 minutes but now stopped, maybe the battery ran out? Any idea whats happened?
