Thank you for your research here, Car Cam Central. I have been researching for a bit now and can use your help in decision making. I need the dash cam to be: – Dual dash cam – capacitor based – not sure battery based will provide long enough shelf life unless you can provide some info that it doesn’t matter – Fill feature ADAS or at least can assist with reversing the car or parallel parking – backup camera should be windshield mountable, not safe to put on the license plate – front camera removable from the mount when car not in use so that thieves don’t break in the car to steal the camera – mobile app to easily view and download files – High def – over 1080 for front and definitely 1080 for back – night vision – built-in or external gps – video stabilizer or something… Read more »

Andrew, you haven’t posted in a while. Did they buy you off? I can imagine your hard hitting reviews make you less than a favorite of the industry. But they are the best reviews by far. If you are going to do more I for one would be willing to pay a small amount to support the effort.

Anker’s Roav dashcams have a couple of newer available models, C2 and A1. Do you know what are differences between the two models. Both models are similarly priced.

Hey Andrew,
When are you going to review the new Viofo a129 Duo and compare it to the a119? I’m was ready to purchase the a119, based on your review until I learned that the a129 has been released.

Thanks for all the reviews, they have been very helpful.

using a A129 myself and totally happy with the built quality as well as the video quality. haven’t found any issues so far, wifi has been good, rear camera is nice and discreet, definitely a step up from the A119s. highly recommended! for this price, you can hardly go wrong.

Hey Andrew,

I just bought the dual channel mini 0906 from Amazon with the parking guard. I had a mechanic install the whole thing and for the last couple days the camera seriously over heats in a matter of minutes, both while driving and while the car is off and it’s in parking guard mode. On both a cool, cloudy day with full blast air conditioning to a hot day, the temperature of the camera goes from say, 80 degrees all the way to 170.

Have any insight on what might be causing the problem? I’m using SD card(s) that you recommended as well.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Andrew,

Have you heard of Viralsaur? I’ve been seeing their Ad online for a little while now. It might be something worth checking out for a budget car cam.
