Looked
compact, small, neat and ideal size to fit onto windscreen of car. Well packed, very detailed instructions and
good design. The instructions could be easier to follow but once read a few
times easy enough to install and set up.
Quality is very good. Durable,
will last and nice neat size for car.
Not too big and does not restrict your driving view. Simple enough to download
the footage by plugging into laptop. Footage
was clear and accurate. The camera size is just right, can see footage as
driving, clear and good filming facility.
I have been using this continually and with so much traffic on the road
I feel more confident driving to work knowing this is filming my trip. If anytime in the future I encounter and
accident I am confident in the knowledge I can send the footage to the
insurance company and have actual real time film of incident, which gives me
peace of mind. Since using this I have
noticed many cars now have these installed and they are a great idea and keeps
you confident and safer on the roads. I
have in the past had traffic accidents and having one of these would have
resolved the issue in no time. The RAC
is an iconic company and gives me total confidence in the product. Very good
value for money and gives you peace of mind when driving. I have already purchased one for my wife and
recommended to family and friends. This
is certainly something I would not be without now, easy to install, easy to use
and gives clear account of your journey.
I now feel confident that if any accidents do happen I have this all
filmed and that gives me confidence on the road. Graham Pearson

Wow
what a neat little gadget, could not wait to try it out. Packaging is very good, you can clearly see
product, what it does and all the parts you need well packaged. Instructions I did find a bit confusing at
first but my husband helped me out and then all so easy. This is so easy to fit onto the car
windscreen and such a neat little camera.
Quality is excellent. I had been
looking at these as a few friends have been using them. During my trial I was involved in a minor car
accident. The normal situation came up
as to who was at fault, but this was a godsend.
I had the whole incident filmed.
I came home downloaded, saved and sent the file to the insurance
company. Wow what a difference this made
as no question who was at fault all on film.
I am now a convert and would not be without this as an invaluable gadget
when you are driving on the roads today due to everywhere being so
congested. The quality is great, the
filming of this little gadget is clear and it is certainly one of those gadgets
all cars should have. Superb value for
money and produced by the RAC a long established trusted company. I have already purchased one for my son and daughter
and they have installed in their cars.
Easy to work, easy to charge, film footage clear and now I am confident
all the family are safer travelling on the roads. I have told everyone who will listen about
this little amazing gadget. One all cars
should have and thank you for giving me opportunity to review. Lillian Taylor

A
nice sized product. Compact for use in
my car. I was expecting the dash cam to be bigger and more the size of a sat
nav. The box was nicely presented. The
packaging supported the safe delivery of the dash cam. The box was slightly too big considering the dash
cam is very small. The RAC logo made it
seem like a trustworthy product. Initially my dash cam didn’t come with a
memory card, despite it saying it did on the box. This was sent later. I didn’t like the format of the instructions,
they seemed very fiddly. The instructions didn’t answer some of my queries
about charging. The dash cam was much
easier to use once I actually took it to my car and tried it rather than trying
to follow the instructions. I had trouble inserting the memory card into the slot;
once I worked it out it was straight forward but initially very fiddly. Likewise when removing the memory card, you
need to have small fingers! The product’s quality is very good. The small unit is very robust and it was very
easy to affix it to my windscreen. Play back was relatively straightforward,
and upon scrolling through the menu it was easy to find the footage of
driving. However frequently the footage
was distorted for no apparent reason. My
windscreen was clear both inside and out. However, I never managed to download
and save the footage, instead I had to view it on the dash cam, plugged into
the laptop. I was very hesitant about this at the start as I thought it would
be too small, however the footage is excellent. The position of the devise,
just below my rear view mirror works very well. Being RAC brand does give me
confidence in the product. I’ve needed
to seek advice I have looked to their website and products. Initially I had a fear that it would
interfere with my driving but it doesn’t. This is good value but I am slightly
concerned about the battery life. I would recommend if they wanted to purchase
a dash cam. Although I’d recommend one
which had a better battery. I was
pleasantly surprised by this product. Since trailing it I have become aware
that many more road users are using them.
My biggest hesitation is whether it is a device that would attract
thieves to want to break into the car. I
generally seemed to use the device when visibility was good. During the play back of the video there is
often distortion and the lower part of the image was removed. I also made sure that my windscreen was very
clean. During foggy weather I wonder how
useful this product would be. Although the sound can be muted this is a
function I wasn’t keen on as it records your entire conversation in the car! Judith
