Uniden iGo Cam 820
I don't mind the iGo Cam 820I, when my daughter sets it up for me it just does its own thing. I think age has a lot to do with how easy you find some of these electronic items to use. I am 59, my daughter who is in her late teens has no problem at all using the Uniden iGO Cam 820 whereas I find it complicated. I definitely don't find it user-friendly but I think it does its job well and you can move the two lenses which is handy if you wanted to record someone at say the driver's side window. I mean it is only about $120 what do you expect to...guy? One thing I really hate is having to get onto the internet manufactures site and having to download a huge manual off the internet using my, MB's paper, time and ink. Surely they could include a "Quick Start" overview card in the box so I can get the think up and running. I have a fast 32GB micro SD card in it bare this in mind as you will have to buy one separately and they are not all that cheap the maximum size card it will take is 32GB. I think the downloaded picture quality is fantastic when I download the micro SD card onto my computer the picture quality is great and just as good at night. Very impressed with that which is the main thing it was purchased for. Be warned it has a microphone as well which records conversations I have turned mine turned off. Also keep in mind these cameras can prove your innocence in a serious motor vehicle accident, but they can also provide damming evidence to a Court if you are in the wrong. Crash Investigation Police will take the Dash Cam as an exhibit at any serious accident, download the images and your purchase could drop you right in the Sh-T. Overall I think it is a good value for money dashcam I mean what does $120 buy you nowadays? I have had it for about 2 years. I was just about to purchase a Uniden IGOCAM70R today but after reading other people opinions about Uniden, perhaps I should do some more homework first. It also concerns me that an NSW Police Officer told me that I cannot have anything such as a phone, GPS or dashcam in any position where I can see its screen or there is an on the spot fine of hundreds of dollars. So I cannot have a dashcam or GPS screen switched on, that doesn't sound right but I have heard rumors that they were going to get similar legislation passed as far as Enforcement goes in NSW anything is possible. I will have to check up on that before I buy my new dashcam that still might be a Uniden IGO CAM70R. In my book, these dash cams do a reasonable job and I would buy one again. I think the trick is you have to download the manual and read it and get familiar with the unit and then you will have no problems my daughter set mine up to the full screen and to start recording as soon as I turn my engine on and stop when I turn to off. The microphone is set to off lol. Mike H
