" ...  It's stood up to the extreme Florida heat perfectly as it uses a capacitor instead of a battery (batteries expand in extreme heat and end up damaging the camera).  ...  "
comment
" ...  I love how it also uses a super-capacitor battery as well, which makes it able to handle the hotter summers.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It's nice that it does not have an internal battery cause my last dash cam had one and after a year of use the battery was bulging causing the case to come apart.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I leave my dash cams on 24/7 - I got a bigger truck battery to make sure there's plenty of power for starting after leaving this thing running, even over the week.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Either way, this camera is an excellent buy due to its use of a capacitor instead of battery, it has a couple of different of mounting options, its ease of use and it has a GPS option.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The main factor why this has outlasted all the other cameras is because there is no battery pack. ... Its a simple thing but you have no idea how important this bit of information is because all battery pack cameras rely on the battery to provide at least 5 seconds of power until the camera finishes its saving and shutting down process.  ...  "

" ...  also I would highly recommend that you also purchase the available GPS sensor to attach, it will accurately provide location AND speed to which any incidents occur, which has already gotten me out of a "speeding" ticket in which the police officer actually registered the speed of the person beside me and misconstrued it as my speed.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I do not like that it requires a sperate device in order to have GPS ability but that was easy enough to install.  ...  "
comment
" ...  - The GPS location and speed tracking seems very accurate - I tested speed recording against my speedometer and a local speed sensing sign, and they all agreed I was going the same speed.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Love the fact that the GPS tracker is an option to purchase as I don't want to be tracked 24/7.  ...  "
