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.
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.

Update review, Parkmate very helpful
I had issues with my KPT 722's of which i purchased 2 I called parkmate finally got hold of the and they were very helpful in resolving my problem, initially gave 1 star and bagged them but they really have provided great customer service and I am very happy with them. I wouldn't recommend the KPT 722 due to issues i had with it but I would recommend Parkmate the company. Thank you for help resolve my issues
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 ...

Operates as it is advertised, happy!
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!
Bang for buck !
I was looking at the Uniden 755 igo but their service was total crap
I like to buy in store so I can take something back if it fails so JB Hi fi have a good shop and good service locally and this was on special.
I am a total luddite and hate this kind of thing but even I could set it up and get it running by myself. ( yes I did have a few problems but stopping and thinking fixed them.
I am unsure how the download works on a mac and so I need to work that out but the unit is up and running and doing the job.
Works for me
Only bought yesterday, at JBHI under $200, took home and set up as per manual, all good, checked when I got to work, recorded everything in 5 min loops as where it was set to. Can't fault it yet, early days but...Still records when screen goes off as its designed to do. A bit more explanation in the manual would've been helpful, but not too bad.
Mislead public due to poor manual
Hi Guys, I have one of these and unfortunately all the problems are not to do with the unit but poor explanation via the manual!
Hop onto the below website, and contact support, these guys are awesome!
Mine is working perfectly…
The product is excellent!!
The biggest complaint is (the unit turns its self-off and doesn’t record?
Well in actual fact you have screen saver turned on.. ( designed to help preserve battery and for night driving
The biggest problem is the manual! That’s why it got 4 stars
Anyhow contact the guys at Kapture!
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?
