Terrible waste of money

Absolute waste of money, and terrible company to deal with . Had 3 cameras fail . They try charging you for the re sending of replacement. Please dont waste your money

Keeps resetting from new and still with supplier

Have been a fan of Viofo until now. Contacted them everyday for a couple of weeks as the unit keeps resetting. They gave me some instructions to try but no luck. Sent the unit back and the technicians still aren’t able to diagnose after another 2 weeks. This is unacceptable that it’s taking too long. Clearly it’s faulty so just replace the unit or give me a refund!!!!

Will never buy again due to poor customer service.

Buyer beware…go for another brand and save yourself some headaches as you will be buying something else while Viofo just hold on to a faulty unit Show details

Replacement sent even out of warranty

So, the power in my front dash cam went. It was out of warranty by a few years but I contacted VIOFO customer support to see if they had any solutions. I returned my camera to them with a payment if USD 30 and on receipt of sending item they immediately posted me out another camera. Fantastic customer service and great communication. Thank you for making it so easy to solve. Not often that happens with products today. Show details

Lasted less than 12 months

I ordered this in January 2021, and I installed it. I had issues with my rear camera being dark and hazy. I contacted BG in June, and they sent a FULL replacement out. I attached the new replacement camera to it. Though and behold, I am embarrassed to say there was a camera lens protector on it. LOL. Anyway, it worked well but I would keep getting it beeping, usually after I took out the Samsung Recommended EVO security card (which was formatted in the device). Eventually, I had a Road rage incident, and discovered it hadn't been recording. I put the replacement in, and it is now working fine. Show details

Only lasted 14 months and Stop working do not buy

If I can give it a 0 I would, the dash cam is ok when it is working but it only lasted 14 months and then died. Forget about warranty and customer support, once it’s outside the warranty period they do not want to know you. You have been warned DO NOT BUY….. Show details

Didn't last for a year and no warranty

- To install the dash cam and use fully feature, the technician needed.
- The footage is great but need a polarizing len to reduce a reflection.
- The connectivity is relatively slow over the wifi signal.

I started to have an issue after 6 months using it. The dash cam just randomly stop working. Show details

Great camera, just not for Australia

Camera was easy to install and gave great quality footage, especially at the price point. The build quality is not the greatest and clearly not suited to the weather in Melbourne. After 6 months an 1 summer (2019-20) both units attached to the front windscreen melted and buckled to the point the camera was unusable. Show details

Affordable and best you can get at this price range

Easy to set it up with the tool provided, rear camera can be a bit tricky on line the cable, but didn manage to a nice finish with help of YouTube.

Picture quality is good during day, normal at night.

Wifi connection is very handy but if you want to browse across multiple videos soomthly, you might still want to take the sd card out.

I do sometimes find the camera doesn't start automatically when car is powered up, about 1 in 20 chance, I don't think I had this problem before with my old blackvue, not sure if this is common to this, will see Show details
