Will not switch off - very poor quality
Had this unit professionally installed and it will not switch off. You can make the screen "sleep" after a minute, but the screen will then not switch back on when you drive the car, so makes the screen worthless. Unless you want to advertise to everyone at night you have a dashcam installed with the bright screen glowing in the dark I would steer well clear of this unit. Also the menu button needs multiple presses to work.

Terrible. Beyond terrible.
- The app does not work and so you cannot automatically transfer files to phone. Much like every other review I have the same issue
- My dash cam freezes often
- It doesn’t recognise my rear camera at all.

The overspeed alert is driving me crazy. It repeatedly tells me I am over the (110km) speed limit even at low speeds (10KM).Cannot switch unit off, pulled it off the window chucked it in the backseaat where it continued alerting me for the next 30 mins didnt stop until i pinned the reset button
I was told by uniden to turn off the overspeed alert . And whats the point of that when the speed alert is supposed to be operational. Useless expensive piece of equipment. Now uniden want to charge me to look at it because it is just out of warranty. Off to consumer affairs i go.

OK camera but an annoying camers
The camera quality is OK, but The speed camera warning is useless. The camera will alert you regardless of which direction you are approaching an intersection from - even if its in a direction that is not impacted by the camera. I have tried to turn the warnings off from the menu but it still persists blasting out warnings in a loud, tinny distorted voice. Not even an option to turn down the volume. I may have to put glue over the speaker hole

Out of date already
I bought this specifically for the speed camera alerts. It recognises less than half speed and traffic light cameras and is not upgradeable. I rang Uniden and they confirmed this.
Purchased May 2020 so been in the car 6 months. Installing was easy as per my initial review.
PT1: the overspeed alert is driving me crazy. It repeatedly tells me I am over the (110km) speed limit even at speeds between 95 & 105kpm.
PT2: I have tried to turn off the overspeed alert on a number of occasions but the instructions in the manual are very difficult to follow and I cannot work out if in fact the overspeed alert can be switched off or adjusted. I have followed the manual to get into the area of the cam but to know avail. My rating of this dash cam is that it is far too complicated for the average user. I would hate to ever have to save/ download vision if I had an accident. All too hard!

iGO CAM 85R reverse camera cable too short
Fitted the latest Uniden dash cam to a twin cab Navara ute.
The cable supplied is too short for the reversing camera option. The 10m cable that is required is only offered with a new rear camera at $79.95 + $14.95 postage.
Purchased in January 2020 at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $349.00.
Buy another brand
Followed the instructions to charge it and could never get it to turn on.
Rang their support line 2 days ago, waited on hold for 5 minutes then asked to leave a message with details for a call back which still hasn’t happened.
Took it back to JB for a refund so I can buy another brand.

Good for the price, could be better
I value my vehicles, so I took the leap and purchased the Uniden iGo Cam 80 as a test bed for my 4wd.
I love the camera itself, fantastic little unit, great sound and video quality, the GPS is accurate and I do like that it displays the speed. I’ve captured a few crashes (not mine thankfully), which have helped others involved in incidents.
The mount to the window is strong and secure, although the mount itself that holds the camera does vibrate and that’s noisy as well, easily interferes with the sound on the video.
I recommend a large micro SD card, a 32gb card will only hold a few hours of footage.
I love that it splits the video into 3min clips as well.
Purchased in March 2018 at JB Hi-Fi for $300.00.
Poor quality night footage
Barely viewable night footage, grainy, overexposed, impossible to view numberplates that were as clear as day to the naked eye, and the camera moves around too much on its mount, I would never again purchase any Uniden product.

Questions & Answers
iGO CAM 85R, purchased from AutoBarn November 2020. Camera never turns off, even when ignition is off and car locked. I now have plenty of footage of inside my garage when car is parked. Help. Is this a wiring problem (installed by AutoBarn with installation costing $192).
Please send through an email to our customer service team on firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to assist you further.
This product is a waste of money even after getting support from uniden with my issues. The camera still continually says overspeed limit, etc. i have now bought blackvue product. And its brilliant.
I just bought my new Uniden iGo 80 and had Autobarn install professionally - hard wired with the add-on kit cost for that. From the get go, the cam stays on, screen lit AND recording files over & over - never stops, even when the engine is off - even records hours of my 'stationary' garage wall..... any ideas?
Return it, mine never worked from the start and their "support" was basically useless.
I’ve igo 80 and brought the reverse cam separately and had everything fitted by auto election. When powered on the rear camera is the four led lights come on.
And I do not get any footage from the rear camera.
Sorry can’t help, mine never worked so I returned it for a different brand.
Does the owners manual have specific instructions on how to switch on the reverse camera?
Alternatively, you could take it back to the auto electrician and get them to sort it, given they did the installation.
