Dear OZB members, hope everyone is having a great weekend. We are very glad to see that a lot of members are interested in our G1W-C dashcam. It is one of our best selling car dvr, and we are trying our best to offer it at possibly the best price online.

However, we didn't expect this deal was shared to OZB, so we only have 220 in stock. The first 220 orders will be shipped out before Oct 1. Since the National Day in China is coming soon (7 days holiday), we don't expect the next batch of G1W-C to be back in stock any day before the Oct 8. So orders after the first 220 will probably be dispatched around Oct 10. We will keep the post updated once we have a more accurate date.

We changed the status of this product to "Back Order", so you can still submit a order and make a payment authorization via PayPal. This means you just authorize us the rights to charge your order payment in the next 25 days. In this way, you don't actually pay for the order until we have G1W-C back in stock and ready to ship.

Thank you all for your understanding, and hope you all have a wonderful day!

    If this is the legit one, i picked this up for $75 a couple of months ago and would highly recommend it. Blows basically anything you can buy off the shelf for the same price out of the water.

      Had mine for a few months, it's def the best camera for the pricepoint f $75 when I got it. This price is great!

    How long do these dashcams stay on for when the car is not turned on? (i.e, leaving the car to go somewhere)

    Innovative 120 degrees ultra-wide angle lens

    Is this a good lens angle? Camera must be good but 120 degrees won't cover anything if some one suddenly change the lanes right in front of you. I have 170 degree one but the quality is not good. Wish if this had a bit wider angle.

    I've been wanting to get a dashcam for my Mazda 3, but I'm not game to screw around with the A pillar trim due to the curtain airbags.
    Seems to be plenty of good deals around lately!

    the A118 posted earlier looks better, more compact and hidden. However, this looks really big and can be seen outside. Which model is better in terms of performance and quality?

  •  

    How does it compare to the previous Gearbest dashcam deal?
    Should I be feeling regret for buying the that one?

    edit: oops looks like I had the same question as abracadabra

    •  

      Get the one from this deal. It has a capacitor. The A118 has a battery. When I think about how crazy hot my Galaxy S3 gets when I charge it in the car I don't want to have a dash cam with a battery.

    I got pointed to the G1WH link too from the road rage forum post. Just wondering but the angle of this lens appears smaller than the G1WH - does anyone know if , or have tried the G1W-C and can confirm that the angle of the lens isn't too bad/as restricting as it sounds? Would you still be able to see someone coming out of a roundabout from your sides or turning into you from abit to your sideSs? or are these cams purely for forward recording of accidents or incidents?

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/162607

    Would this also use a 32GB Kingston only SD class 10 cards like the G1WH post?

    One other thing I noted is that the youtube video for the G1WC:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySPs84M-x0M#t=27

    At the start of the video it's alot more blurry to see rego plates and in general compared to the youtube videos from the seller in the G1WH thread? Is the camera on a lower quality recording, or is the quality that blurry/bad?? at least I think it isn't that great?

    I've never had or looked into dash cams, but from the sounds of it these G1xx cams seem to get a good writeup - is that right? If anyone could educate an amateur like me that'd be great, looking for something not too pricey to 'try out' incase a questionable accident happens .

    Also how would one go about recording rear view movements/accidents? Appears some linked product items on sale on online stores have cameras that have the main front viewing camera, and rear view lens on the back of the product? Are these any good? Or for this sub $60 price you can't go past these G1WH/G1W/G1W-C models?

    Also what's the difference between a capacitor and battery? Sorry i know amateur question, but is it just a head in the car issue, where a capacitor avoids that? And if so how long does a capacitor charge run? Or does it have to run from in-car electronics?

    •  

      Sorry another question….

      Do these attach to your front screen or the back of your rear view? Or is this attachable to your dashboard?

      Most importantly with these G1xx models DVRs are they removable cradles, that you can setup the suction etc and remove the camera from the housing when exiting the car i.e. throw it in the glove box.

      I assume because like a GPS system these are prone to stupid criminals who can't tell the difference that it's cheap and will break in to steal it? So just wanted something with the ease of removal and therefore you don't have to restick/setup the cradle each time you get in/out of a car…

      • +2 votes

        I'll try and answer a few of your questions (I own a G1W-C):

        Not sure where the rumours that it needs a Class 10 came from - but I've heard the exact opposite. Most Class 10 cards seem to end up with errors in the files for some reason, so cheaper cards are recommended.

        I think mine has a poverty 16gb class 2 or 4 card and works fine.

        The unit comes with a suction cup which you can mount anywhere, but some models come with a rear-view mirror clamp as well. So you can choose where you attach it (the mirror clamp didn't fit on my Honda Civic, though).

        I think the capacitor/battery issue is related to heat. In summer, the temperatures in the car can damage a battery (or worse), whereas a capacitor should be better.

        You can remove the camera from the cradle, but it's obviously locked in there pretty tight to prevent it shaking/falling whilst recording, so it might take some effort. It might slowly degrade the plastic on the mount if you keep detaching it.

        •  

          The class 10 kingston rumours came from the G1WH link that was on sale recently that I also linked above.

          It seems the G1W-C also uses a microsd?

          When you say a suction cup, the suction cup is attached to the main camera, but this camera can then detach from the structure which the suection cap is attached to?

          Coincidentally I also have a 2009 honda civic! how about you? So if yours doesn't fit to your mirror mine probably won't though.

          I assume becuase you said removing the camera from the cradle might remove /wear down the plastic, that the suction mount is seperately attached to the cradle, which is in turn attached to the camera?

          How is your capacitor in terms of operation - does it lose the date/time when you turn off your car? And to be powered do you therefore need a wire running down from your camera connected to the cigarette lighter?

          Thanks for your help/advice.

          P.S. do you remove yours from your car when it's parked? Been targetted for break ins because of it?

        • +2 votes

          @SaberX: Yeah I've seen heaps of Ebay/Chinese sellers claim it needs a class 10 Kingston only, but I did my research watching youtube videos and reading forums - most had issues using class 10 for some reason. I just checked and confirmed mine is a 16gb SanDisk class 2 and works perfectly fine so far.

          The camera is a small rectangle unit: http://i00.i.aliimg.com/wsphoto/v0/1898666906_1/Free-Shippin...

          The suction mount is attached via the square at the top: http://i.imgur.com/CHUTuuW.jpg

          The rear-view mirror clamp is attached via the square at the top: http://img08.taobaocdn.com/imgextra/T1Mjo_FcRiXXXXXXXX_!!0-item_pic.jpg

          So you could detach the camera from the mount at any time, but it might be a hassle since you will have a cable + the lock is in fairly securely.

          I've only used the camera twice (got it a few days ago), and it's kept time and date. In order to operate it, you must have it connected to the lighter (so it can turn on/off when the car is turned on/off respectively). The capacitor is only there to save the data after you've switched off the car battery.

          Also…try 1997 Civic haha. Wondering why I bought a dashcam for such a poverty car.

          edit: I don't remove mine, because I doubt my car would be targeted for break ins anyway lol.

        •  

          @paizuri5: THanks for the clarification pictures. Looking at that suction mount am I correct in saying I'd have some difficulties sticking it to an uneven dashboard? The new civics say 2009 onwards have angled dashboards etc, and not just plain flat, so if so can I either a) mould the suction cup at an angled surface i.e. not flat or b) can you mount the mount at an angle but have the actual camera on a rotational base so you can sort of turn it to be straight angled (like a rear view mirror if you get what i mean)?

          That's good that the date/time keeps. I guess you won't be not using your car for 4 or 5 days (which I sometimes don't if i'm flying for work) - so won't know if capacitor can keep charge that long?

          Ahhh, that's true no one would target you as much. Tossing up if it's worth the hassle for me if someone breaks my screen just to grab it (inconvenience)… hmm i've been lucky to have had no accidents to date requiring a dash cam… hmmm.decisions decisions.

          is your cable just let out freely?

      Here's an snapshot at a roundabout with the G1W-C.
      http://aciai.me/i/TlgE8.png

      As for the rego plates, if you're within several metres of another car the plate is visible. You just have to pause frame by frame to be able to see the plate. Here's a few examples at sunset. Notice the cars to the right.

      With the G1W-C, you can't use the camera it without having it plugged in.

      •  

        Cheers - tbh the pictures i find it hard to make out most of the nearest cars license plates! I assume on video and travelling at speed you'll struggle to make out cars rego? Contrast to videos by the G1WH online they appear high quality - i assume therefore the G1W-C is less quality? The only thing that i liek though is this capacitor thing - if the aussie heat is going to kill your lithium battery real quick there's no point having the G1WH - unless that can be permanently hooked up by cable?

        So i assume from your pictures the main purpose is to prove not at fault etc than exact details of a rego if a speed and run or something?

        Also what do you do with yours once you park? Do you remove yours? Otherwise given yours is on the dash have you ever been targetted for a break in? I'm afraid idiots will mistake these for GPS systems or worse they'd steal it anyway as its an electronic.

        •  

          I find it legible. Quality does depend a lot on the speed you're travelling at and the weather conditions. Not sure about the G1W-H as I haven't had experience with one but I don't think you can really go wrong with either being so cheap.

          Yeah, that's exactly the reason I got it for being a P plater with high excess…

          No, I just leave it there. Just put it in a discreet location (http://aciai.me/i/k8dwp.jpg). None of my friends really noticed until I pointed it out.

    Are these easy to mount and remove from the windscreen? Is the mount fragile?

  •  

    I'm not sure what the story is about Class 10 cards here. What forums suggest not using Class 10? The Youtube review says that he 'thought' it was the issue with corrupt files but it turned out to be not using the included charger, so not actually the Class 10 being the issue.

  • +1 vote

    So if you have to connect this to car charger and the review said splitting it so you can charge the phone as well caused problems then how will I charge the phone?

    Can't you hook it up direct to car battery and use motion sensor so it can turn off say after 5 mins of no movement?

    • +1 vote

      The issue (i believe) is the power draw. The camera and phone together require more than it can get. Therefore it causes issues.

      Couple of solutions

      1. change one of the devices to a different lighter socket
      2. Wire in another lighter socket from the battery (don't forget to run a relay!)
      3. Change the existing wire to a thicker gauge (probably inadvisable)

      Can't you hook it up direct to car battery and use motion sensor so it can turn off say after 5 mins of no movement?

      not this camera, the expensive ones generally offer that. If you choose the battery model, it will run the battery down before shutting off. The battery life degrades in the heat, hence the capacitor model. That model shuts down pretty much straight away (as soon as you turn the ignition off)

      •  

        Thanks Davo.

        I called a relo who's a car electrician. He said you can hook it up direct to fuse box and have it turn on and off with ignition so you don't have to split your cigarette lighter

      Wouldn't storage size be an issue here? I have a 32gb card in mine and I get 5 hours of recording, before it loops. Say I park at 5:30pm, someone backs into my car at 6pm, the footage would be overwritten come morning..

  •  

    Sorry for the silly question, but just to confirm, do you charge the camera by plugging it into the cigarette lighter socket?

    • +1 vote

      Sorta, this camera doesn't really 'charge', but you do power it from a 12v cigarette lighter socket. It only operates when the car or ignition is on.

  •  

    For anyone that has one, is the connector on the camera a USB mini b? Would the cable in the pic below fit in it?

    This type - https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/rPFYBeDx-eomTZjE4ScE...

    I ask because I still have a cable there from my last camera which melted in a Perth summer and wouldn't have to run a new one through the roof etc!

    Cheers.
