Uniden IGO Camera 820 Dual with night vision
The camera itself is OK, not that user friendly to setup but what really annoyed me was the bracket broke about 3months after it was installed. Very poor quality and it shouldn't happen.
As a comms engineer, Uniden used to be top quality and was well renowned, I had a couple of their CB radios over the years but this camera mount is rubbish. Now I have to pay about $50 on Ebay to get a replacement.
No Dramas to set up it's really quite easy
Quality of Footage is below par! very slow and very grainy, I would hate to have an accident thinking I had good quality footage.
Connectivity is the best feature not much else.
Purchased in October 2018 at Catch for $200.00.
Uniden money maker
The dash cam works fine BUT the screen mount is extremely poorly made and is not UV stable and as such it doesn't last. I have bought 2 spares and same problem. Absolute Garbage and the customer service stinks.
Purchased in May 2017 at Redeemed points on Visa Card.
Can live with out it
Your brand is no worth being on the self, in any store.
Warranty or not, with the same problem every one has you should give our money back, so we can buy a new one. ( Differant Brand )
I have told all my friend to never buy this brand.
You should be a shamed of your product.
Purchased in September 2018.
Gaps in loop record make it utterly useless. Don't be like everyone else - read your manual.
First off, most of the complaints on here are from people that haven't read the manual. They're all complaining that the unit only records for 5 minutes and stops. That's how it is set out of the box for some unknown reason. Once you set it to loop recording, that problem is fixed. BUT that's where the real issues start... on a 100mb/s class 10 card, the gaps in the loop recording (the time it takes to save the file, delete an old one and start recording again) are massive. 14 seconds! We've had 2 incidents since using this camera and both have...occurred in the gap, so they haven't been recorded. The mounting bracket snapped in the heat and fell off the windscreen. The unit was purchased 4 months ago. The manual says that "this device and all included accessories are covered by a 12 month replacement warranty" but Uniden refused to replace the mount several times because they said it was a spare part, which is only covered for 3 months. This took escalating to a higher authority and the threat of legal action. Oh, and did I mention that we are a Uniden distributer and this is in our work vehicle? Extremely awkward and clumsy interface to try and use. Avoid like the plague!
Purchased in November 2018 for $249.00.
I am disappointed by this unit from Uniden, now out of warrenty, unreliable recording, give a a thump and it may work for 5 minutes, but then stops recording and battery doesn't charge even thou power is connected.Never worked properly since new In the bin for this heap of junk !
Uniden have replaced mine four times with the same unit. All of the units have the same faults - stop recording, wont charge, corrupt files, short files. This is extremely unreliable and of very poor quality. My advice - do not purchase Uniden car cams - even Uniden Australia can not provide one that works!
Only had for a couple of weeks and never worked properly from day one. Took ages to set up going through the menu. Unit stops recording when it feels like it. Does not loop record. Unit has been connected to my PC for over 4 hours and is not charging.
Poor quality all round
Sadly it just got past the 12 months old, so no warranty. Plastic mounting was poorly designed so the main holder snapped off under its own weight, but I was able to plastic weld.... But....Intermittent recording now ( records when it feels like it )
Must say I thought Uniden was a better product. Never again
I had the same problem. I was led to believe it had loop recording but it doesn't.
Expected much better quality from this company and given the price it certainly is not a good purchase.
You can purchase much cheaper cameras which give you the same features as this one.
Waste of my flybuy points
Sooo disappointed! Used my Flybuy points for this unit. Got the first one in December, 2017, finally got the card for it, and wow! Couldn’t get it to work, did everything it said in the manual, to get it to work, so phoned Uniden, and then sent it back. Contacted Flybuys and they said I shouldn’t have sent it back, should have got in touch with them first! Anyhow, after waiting for Uniden to contact me, which they didn’t, I phoned them, and insisted that it should be replaced, so they sent me a new one. Well, it worked for a while last week, an...d now, it won’t! The red recording light is on, the unit is fully charged, driving up to Nelson Bay today, I had to keep pushing the ON switch to make it come on, but coming home, noooo, red light is flashing, but the camera will not come on! I give up!
Terrible unit - not worth the money
Only way to charge now is 240V & then lasts ten minutes in the car. Will not charge in car - some of the buttons no longer work so cannot change settings. Will not auto start recording. Given up & buying something that is reliable. In my opinion there are much better options out there
Being on the road all day I wanted piece of mind in case of an accident. So I bought this unit about 18 months ago. A few months in I witnessed an accident so I told the people I would send them the footage. Got home only to realise the unit only taped for 5 minutes and that is for every time I turned the car on. Sent back to Uniden who sent me another new on... nothing but issues still. Now it won't record at all. Don't buy UNIDEN products
Piece of junk
I purchased this a while back now from Harvey Norman. And since day one it’s never worked properly. It seems like it’s defective. It doesn’t take a rolling film it chunks one journey into about 357 mini videos. The menu and the controls are illogical and not user friendly at all. I lost my temper with it and hurled it in the trash. The only place for it.
Take my advice choose a different dash cam or save your money!
