Using the QX800
You can view the below all here as I've only uploaded some of the pictures.
Live view & file list
Initial firmware out of the box v1.00.01
The Extreme ADAS has on-screen warnings whether the screen is on or off. I’ve been trying to record the Extreme ADAS in action but it’s a bit hard at the moment.
The videos below are recorded in 2560×1440 30fps with an overall bit rate of 19.6 Mb/s.
It’s been a while since I used a dashcam with a screen & sure bring back memories of screen dashcams I used to own.
This QX800 is really huge & it reminded me of my old SonyEricsson mobile phone.
The rear camera video was recorded in mirror mode as I thought I was able to test the Blind Spot Detection feature but couldn’t as didn’t have the DriveX & BSD module to fully test out all features.
Note – You can change the view for the rear camera.
I really like the cool looking circular security LED on this QX800. But this QX800 really attracts attention with its huge size and fancy security LED.
Is this QX800 for everyone? I think this QX800 would look good in a big car like SUV and MPV. Not for those looking for discreet dashcams.
Wish that the GPS receiver was built-in instead of an external receiver. Less 1 cable to hide.
