Err.....first, I got to admit, I am idiot in dashcam thingy, never use one before, until I bought the car, the SA give FOC to me (the cheapo one, those u can get from credit card booth) which just broke down. Not sure if I consider lucky, never need to use the dashcam for the duration.
What I mean is my definition or purpose of car dashcam, is same like insurance, something you buy with hope you never need to use it. You only use it when u accident or need evidence. Day to day driving, doubt anyone need it unless you are constantly on the road like Grab driver or delivery fella. But, of course, when accident happen, bad luck, then, it will be good evidence. So, my definition of decent dashcam is rather simple jer, so long it can record clearly how does it accident happen, the car plate number, it is fine jor.......anything more is good to have, but not must or requirement.
That's why I would put the lowest budget if possible, that meet the above expectation, and slowly move up, add on to things good to have, like auto-loop function, park function, if the these "upgrade" does not coz significant jump from the plain vanilla dashcam.
Just like, say u want to go from point A to point B where it too far to walk. You can use either bicycle, motorbike or car. All got pro and cons, got multiple model to suit every price range. So, bicycle would suit me perfectly. Then, I told u I got a little bit extra budget and don't like tire myself, so, you recommend me motorbike. Then, I told you, I told you, also want convenient not caught in rain, then, u recommend me car. But, in car segment also, u can recommend me kancil or ferrari, both also meet my request, but the price varies significantly. So, based on my requirement and budget, then, I have option either bicycle, motorbike or kancil, ferrari is out of question, or anything above kancil is out of question, unless you have something like kancil price point but better than kancil quality/ functions.
Same analogy above, the existing one which are spoil i am using is bicycle, plain vanilla, basic unit, without auto loop, with no park function, which I think can be easily buy for less than RM100. Then, say I want to upgrade a little, to have auto-loop function, what price should i look at? What is the most basic unit (that can record accident incident and also car plate)?. Then, next upgrade, say I want park function, what will be the next price point should I look at, and what model?
Hope this explain my requirements.
Coz I am idiot in dashcam thingy
and as mentioned above, my requirement is pretty basic, I don't need fancy, high tech dashcam at this moment.
Neither I consider myself dangerous driver nor places i drive dangerous nor I spend a lot of time on the road
Anyway, thanks for your suggestion. Will put A119V3 into consideration
Great that you know what you want. That is exactly my requirement as well. That is why I did not get those high price dashcams. I know those quality very good but it's not what I want. So I did my research and took the plunge to test out these brands. So far I am happy with them all except one of the anytek brand that I don't like. The cheapo one you got are those that cost like RM50 only. Those memang cannot use. Throw away better.
