Genius DVR-FHD590 Full HD Vehicle Video Recorder with 128-Degree Wide Angle and G-Sensor Genius DVR-FHD590 Full HD Vehi

 

When working, the camera is decent. Mounting hardware is ok and the camera size is ok. Video is good quality and wide angle catches the whole front of the car

It freezes constantly, and has since a week after I bought it. I didn't notice this until one day, I guy ran a stop sign in front of me, and nearly hit me. I thought I had video on my new camera, but the unit was frozen. I now have to check it...

DON'T BUY

 

I would not recommend this product. Consistency is the key to this like of product and without it is of no use.

Overall description of functionality sounds good. However, other than good screen the product fails to work consistently -> sometimes turns on and a lot of the times it does NOT which deficit the purpose of this unit

Does not work properly, period. It turns on sometimes and a lot of the times it does not turn on automatically as it should when engine is started. The worst thing is that it turns on automatically when ignition is turns off and drains the unit battery...

surprisingly bad for the price.

 

One of the supposed features of this is that be on in standby and start recording if there is movement, but that fails when the thing goes into coma-mode.

convenient placement of buttons

I would only recommend this for people with switched power outlets. My AC stays on when the engine is off, and if I forget to unplug the camera, it goes into a blank screen / inoperable state. Unplug and plug it back in right away and the red light...
