been looking the same thing...
unfortunately this car DVR are consider new market in malaysia...
not many seller advertise their item online....
and many buyer i believed bought from china/taiwan/HK themself..
and pricing wise is much more cheaper than malaysia market because of their competitiveness and market demand

p/s:
btw..i found some seller with physical shop that i believe you can test out the product yourself
but currently they only sell one type of DVR
http://www.lelong.com.my/full-hd-1080p-car...7-01-Sale-I.htm
or you can search at aliexpress....but it still a RISK buying electronic product from oversea online seller
*
Unfortunately it is. Most people advertise online nowadays. But we would like to try it out first before purchase. There are lots of dashcam manufacturers out there, especially china and HK, but all they do is slap in a idunnowhat camera lens and that's it. Not really optimized for the proper usage.

like sanadi recommend
i also recommend blackvue
blackvue also have cheaper models but NOT full HD...its 720p which for me is more than enough
or go papago..but also RM300 budget, impossible full HD
when its cheap and stated its "full HD"...they mean the size of the video is full HD, not the quality
*
I'm looking for something at least 720p, but has a good camera and video recording.
Some people recommend me to just get a second hand iPhone 4 and use it. doh.gif doh.gif

I saw BlackVue ones are good, but it's so expensive! And, no microphone?

Recommend anyone who wants to buy a dashcam view this video


And read this guide:

Hmm... I know this guy. Some people said he sounds like James May.
I did watch his videos before, but he sounds like every single additional features on the dashcam is stupid. All you need is a camera lens and a screen. That's it.

Well, frankly speaking with less than RM300, I don't think you can get what you have listed above.  So, I advice is, try to topup to RM700-RM800, then you may have somethings you want.

I am currently using DOD LS300w, which is truly Full HD 1080P.
Please select 1080P for clearer picture.

Yours is not bad actually, but no audio?
700-800 is too much la. 300-400 only.

hi, I am into these gadgets as well.......

Since you already set the budget around RM300, I guess you can only get a good camera recorder with reasonable quality on optical, but not with GPS ability. For a unit with GPS....the budget need to be up!  maybe twice as much...somewhere in Rm600 range!

user posted image
Mio Mivue 388

the image above shows MIO Mivue388......probably close to Rm600-700!** This unit has Full HD and GPS ability

But MIO also offers a lesser model ie Mio Mivue 338 and 358!

Basically, The Mio Mivue 338 has 720p resolution(around Rm300) and the Mio Mivue 358 Full HD!(Rm400)

Where to get it?  Ebay!

I currently using the Mivue338 and although it is just a 720p in resolution. I  compared to the WayWay V270 HD model found in local market(Rm229). The Mivue338 actually has better optical (wider angle) and better night time images!
The WayWay V270 HD although having full HD or 1080p resolution, the lens a bit distorted and night time recording is less detail and darker!

user posted image
Wayway V270

Other than image quality, we need also need to take note on file sizes.

at 720p the Mivu338e files averaging at 70MB (for 120seconds video), but WayWay V270 at similar resolution, the file is trice as big! Around 200MB ....

A small memory card such as the 8GB card is useless on wayway....due to its memory hungry nature!

In short, similar size SDCard can store less recorded videos on Wayway compared to the Mio Mivue devices!

Lastly, you need to look also on the the "buttons". Are they carefully layout? Are the buttons Easily to access and press in driving situation?

Plastic quality on MIO devices are great as well, suction cup and accessories(charger) are as good as Garmin product. The Wayway accessories on the other hand, are working fine but the quality is not as good as Mio!

Thats my personal review .... icon_rolleyes.gif

And below is the basic Mio Mivue338 look like:
user posted image
** since the Mio are sold at Ebay.....I couldnt give you a definite or reliable pricing! The prices keep on changing on day to day basis, please check them out regularly .....it may be lesser that what I said now!!!! thumbup.gif

thumbup.gif thumbup.gif thumbup.gif

Mivue 338 sounds great. I've watched the videos on YT, but the night shot isn't good. Very dark. Since you're using it can you post night shots here? From this video it looks so dark:


Plus, sometimes I'll take it off and use it as action camera and stuff.

I'm using the GS9000. Bought it for RM330 on DealExtreme. Pretty damn bloody wide angle! Sample videos can get from Youtube.

heres my own sample.



I'd like to add also that the raw files looks TWICE as good as Youtube's compression at 1080p by the way.

screengrabs(warning large pics)

Do acknowledge that by buying these cheap china dashcams, you're basically taking a gamble by the way. Google for GS9000 on dashcamtalk and you can read horror stories as well as success stories. My tips is do your research before buying any dashcam so you know the pros and cons before buying. Also read up on processor types etc and don't fall for cheap prices on ebay as it might be fakes(yeap, fakes of china brands)

add: just added another sample that happened today


*
Not too bad actually, and the audio quite good! It does have GPS and G-sensor??

That's why I've searched high and low on LYN's AG, about 90% of them are idunnowhat brands, costs roughly RM89-200. I saw this guy, he's selling 5 types of china idunnowhat brand DVR and after watching all the sample videos, all of them are crap. My friend bought one of those, around 150++. Just normal basic lens, full HD but it's quality isn't good.

Btw, a DB9's bumper will costs you >50 grand.

I personally use a Blackvue DR380HD. It's 720p only, however the video quality at night is excellent. It has even more features that I never thought about when buying a dashcam eg. parking mode, battery backup for recording when the engine is off etc.

Build quality is excellent, I've had it for 7 months without problems but the price is far too expensive in Malaysia for any dashcam as mentioned by someone already. I would like to get a cheap dashcam but from watching youtube the video quality at night is lower, plus from dashcamtalk forums etc. most of the cheap China made dashcams aren't very reliable (overheating etc.)

This is my own personal video at the KL-Putrajaya highway

It's actually quite clear, and yep, 720p is enough. But it's expensive as fk!

New Hero 3 around 800++, so i guess that's the original hero, or second/third hand item.

No, I didnt keep samples of my night time driving videos! Wipe them off already....sorry  doh.gif

Anyway, the YT sample that you post has similar quality or close enough on what I am having now.....wait until you see the China made devices night time recording! I tell you... very very dark! The video images are darker than the actual situation.

As for Mivue, I guess the device managed to capture as close as what you can see during night time driving!

(note: it was a good video sample, as it was dark and raining.....yet you can still recognize the white car passing at the junction)
*
From that video it's actually quite dark as well. You can't see a thing at first, and I thought his headlights were off. But all our cars have Xenons so I think that wouldn't be a problem.

But i'll try to avoid something like this: doh.gif doh.gif doh.gif

just use ip4 is an option
in youtube...i did follow a channel where he record everything that happens when its behind a wheel
but if not wrong, hes using ip4s
he starts record everytime hes in the car

thats a no
some cheapo DVR dn't have that loop function
*
most cheapos will have the loop function, and that's it.
btw, it's not cheap to get an iphone 4, and I personally using an iPhone 5, so I can actually use my iPhone 5 to record, but problems are:

1) overheat easily, with screen on all the time and recording, and you need to keep the iphone plugged to the usb adaptor
2) if use normal camera app, no date and time will be shown
3) 3rd party "car dvr" app for iPhone costs a bomb and they only add date and time and probably speed, and they record at most 480p.
4) recording will stop when someone interrupts with a phone call


QUOTE(maxovista @ Sep 22 2013, 09:41 PM)
what happen if the memory full......can the recording loop over by deleting the oldest file???
*
mostly can.

Hi guys. Sorry for bumping my old thread but I'm actually still interested in finding this thing. Something happened today and something else almost happened today so I think I really need one. Budget still less than RM300/unit. Tested out a few units and I must say that even the shitty brand ones are kinda impressive.

although it looks like it's a rip-off of the DOD LS430W, but this is probably the best rip-off.
