    Bought on a few weeks ago from gearbest and its sitting here with me now and I paid $43.82 ($32US)
    Happy that its the Black with Capacitor unlike other sellers that ripped me off.

    •  

      Sounds good. Can you confirm you've tested it's capacitor recording by pulling the power plug and then checking you can access/playback the last file being recorded at the time of power loss? If not, can you test it and post your results?

        Won't work at all unless its plugged in.

        Yep it recorded and saved the last thing before I unplugged it.

        • +1 vote

          Ah that's good to know. I bought an earlier model to this and found that when I unplugged it or turned the car off… it wouldn't write the last file properly and it couldn't be read. Which made it useless in a crash situation. This one sounds ok though :) Thanks for the testing!

        •  

          @gwoodford: yep mine is the battery version of this model and I've got the same issue, last file is always unplayable in VLC…

        •  

          @buddylove: That sucks. That means in a crash… when you need it the most… you can't guarantee that the most important file will be there for you. Which defeats the whole purpose of having the camera in the first place.

          @gwoodford: I have a G1WH with a dead battery, if you play any unfinished file back through the dashcam player, it then becomes readable on PC.

      Yes, its the capacitor version.

      However I do notice that it loses its date/time memory during the hot summer.

      •  

        That's what I initially thought, but later found out that there might be another possible cause.
        If you turn off your ignition within 5 seconds of the camera booting up, it will lose the time and date settings.
        Happens when your car doesn't start up immediately after you turn the key.

  •  

    My G1WH ( 2 years old ) worked nicely for 1 year, afterwards it started doing funny things like shutting down during a drive. Most recent thing is that it stops remembering the date - so everytime I get into my car, I have to set the date to the current date in order to have the correct datestamp on the video.

    I understand that the G1W-CB is exactly the same hardware with capacitor instead of battery - which means it's susceptible to the same faults that is currently happening to my G1WH? Or is this not a thing?

    Also do you guys flash the hardware with a custom firmware to overwrite the default one? If so, which one would you recommend?

    • +2 votes

      bought 2 of these G1w-cb 3 months back, they seem to work flawlessly right now, very happy with the quality of the videos. hopefully it stays that way even after 1 year…

          and so

          and they have promised with me that they will deal every complaint very seriously and 100% customer satisfaction.

          If they fail to do so, I will no longer work for them.

      Yeah I have to agree.

      Going through a warranty issue now with them for a product that was advertised as having 120v-240v, but when I plugged the item in and the adaptor blowing up, did I see it was only a 120v adaptor.

      They originally wanted to just give me 100 gearbest instore credit and leave it at that.

    Hmmmm… I'm pretty sure $45.44 was the price just a few days ago for the dashcam as I was going to purchase it then, now it has conveniently gone up to $46.78 to accommodate the discount code.

    • +1 vote

      AUD has dropped by a few percent in the last few days, could just be currency variation.

      • +1 vote

        So you are saying that it is just a coincidence that the discount is the exact same amount as the currency variation… the price a few days ago was exactly $45.44.

        Edit: Just figured out what's going on, the price of $45.44 is what I get when I click on the link from my PC and it states "email only price" which I saw a few days ago and just now. Earlier on my phone I was getting the $46.78 price "flash sale" price… so my apologies for the confusion and +1 from me.

    I bought 2 of G1W-C cameras from geartbest, they started to play up very soon ,like missing recordings even with screen showing red dot as recording, they keep loosing the date and finally the display became "grainy" and also the video…..cost of sending both back to china address is half of the camera value…but will get a repaired item back and warranty not extended ….I dont think the quality is good and to claim warranty the shipping cost…just my experience….not worth the hassle….
    Got offered like 8 dollars credit if wanted to buy other one…..NO way….dont get into same bad product again.

  •  

    Have been using one for about a year now, gotta say the recording quality is pretty good for the price. The only downside is that video sometime doesnt automatically delete after getting full.
    Of course i bought from a reputable ebay seller so not very sure about gearbest one

      Do you mean the 'memory card is full' blue screen? If yes, just unplug and replug.

    What's the best way to extend the cable? I'm afraid the default cable won't be long enough if I were to hide the wires…

    • +2 votes

      Buy a car adapter, plus an extra super duper long USB cable .

      However, suggest you try the cable provided, as its quite long as it is. The one that came with the box was big enough for me to wire it around the windscreen (passenger side), down under the glove box then to the cig lighter with some slack to spare.

      •  

        My car's (Mazda CX5) nearest cigarette lighter is at the center console. That would mean running the wire around the windscreen, down, under the floor mat and up into the console.

        •  

          The cable that came with the G1WC works fine in the CX9, round the windscreen passenger side, along the trims, under the floor mat and into the centre console.

    do apologise, stupid question…

    anyone know if this can keep recording when i turn off the engine and park offstreet? if not, can anyone kindly recommend me a parking recorder that can record when i park my car offstreet with engine off?

    some stupid truck driver just hit my car.. driver came out the car, look left, look right, seems like no one noticing it, and run away, leave me at least 8cm hole and scratches at the corner of my car(but the fact someone witness it behind the window)

      Most dashcams have a battery, which is good and bad. Good because it permits the dash cam turn on whenever there is a bump, but bad because the battery is a major cause of failures. This dash cam, the G1W-CB, does not have a battery, so it can't record after you have taken the car keys out. The equivalent model with a battery is the G1W-B.

      If you are wanting to film hit-and-run incidents, you'll need at least two dashcams, and even then you have no guarantee you'll be able to see the other vehicle's number plate.

      The ideal dash cam would be permanently connected to the car battery, have a bump sensor, and be smart enough to hibernate within a few minutes of parking the car. If anyone knows of such a dash cam, please speak up.

      You can easily get a permanent 12V connection inside the car's cabin by connecting to the ODB-II connector. But you don't want to connect a dashcam there unless the dashcam is smart with power management, or your car battery will go flat when you leave it parked for a week or two.

    •  

      the only other reasonably priced dashcam that's powered by battery is the dvr207gs. not sure if there's a hardwire kit available for the g1wcb. but if you're like me and don't like the idea of draining it, get one of those jumpstarter powerbanks that come with an adapter for 12v ciggy socket accessories. the one i bought was about $250 (look for them at auto parts stores and specialist battery shops), which was quite a bit cheaper than your next best option: a cellink-b https://automotivesuperstore.com.au/cellink-b-cellink-b-s2-1... for $299

        I'm always worried about keeping large lithium-ion batteries in a car. I have experience with small Li-ion batteries, and their datasheets say they are only rated to 45 degrees when charging and 60 degrees when discharging or storage. The air temperature can get hotter than that inside a car, I imagine it would be even hotter in the glovebox under a hot dashboard. So I think it's a risk.

        For much less than the price you paid for your jumpstarter, I would instead get a 6V motorbike battery or gel cell and appropriate charger circuit, and mount the gel cell inside the engine bay, on the non-exhaust side of the engine. It should be cooler there, as the front grill will at least give some ventilation. It is easy to regulate the 6V from the gel cell down to 5V, an LDO linear regulator will do the job just fine, at only slightly lower efficiency when compared to a switchmode supply.

        Example: Kit for 6V gel cell charger, using 12V input:
        http://www.altronics.com.au/p/k1685-6v-12v-gel-cell-charger-...

        If you don't have electronics skills, you can probably buy a ready-made unit at a caravan store.

        •  

          the bike battery option was considered. but then i'd have to buy two of them for my cars, figure out where to mount and how to wire them in each (my newer car has absolutely no room in the engine bay for even the smallest of battery units, and due to its location on the vehicle, the engine bay gets rather warm when it's just idling).

          so for portability between the cars, as well as the need for a more compact jumper than the heavy-as lead acid unit i already have, i went with the li-ion jumpstarter. i have it positioned out of direct sunlight but still easy to access so i can swap the plug from the cig socket to my jumpstarter when i park somewhere. i don't currently run it in my car when parked at home.

          HI It seem you are expert or some experience on this topic.

          I am trying to do exact same thing. I have purchased cheap 3 X 6Volt sealed lead battery from our last Masters deal.

          I am trying to down the volt to suit above dash cam

          Could you please tell me if there is instruction on how to convert & safely RECHARGE the battery?

          thank you.

          @hongas:

          I'm not an expert on dashcams, but I do design electronics for a living.

          The Altronics kit I mentioned above looks perfectly adequate for charging the batteries. I would connect this to the cigarette lighter socket, so it only charges when the car keys are turned on. That way it can't flatten the car battery, it will only draw current when you are in the car, and presumably the engine is running.

          To reduce the battery voltage to USB voltage, 5V, a very good low-dropout (LDO) voltage regulator is needed. There are probably half a dozen available that will do the task, with a quick search I found the LT1129CT-5. The circuit is quite simple, but you'll need someone with electronics skills to hook it up. I don't know how much current your dashcam draws, but if it draws the USB standard 500mA or less, the LT1129CT-5 will dissipate almost a watt of heat, so you'll also need a small heatsink and some heatsink paste. You'll also need an output capacitor, as described in this webpage:

          LT1129CT-5 data here: http://www.linear.com/product/LT1129
          Purchase from here, free shipping if you order online: http://au.rs-online.com/web/p/products/5455590

          Lead-acid batteries have enough power to cause nasty damage when something goes wrong, so do put a fuse in the lead going to the positive terminal of the 6V battery, and in the lead coming from the cigarette lighter. 2A fuses are about the right size.

          If you are good at electronics, you could add some undervoltage protection, so it cuts power to the dashcam if the 6V battery ever gets too flat. It would take too long to describe a proper circuit, but here are some ideas:
          - use a discrete SCR (two transistors) at low current to turn on the LT1129CT-5, so that when the SCR is on, the LT1129CT-5 is on. You may need an extra PNP transistor to invert the signal.
          - trigger the SCR with the input voltage from the cigarette lighter, so that when power is applied the SCR turns on.
          - use a 5V reset chip with a voltage divider on the input, and connect it so it will "kill" the SCR circuit if the 6V battery drops below maybe 5.5V.

          The above advice assumes that you understand electronics reasonably well. I take no responsibility if something goes wrong.
