Welcome to LYN Dashcam Discussion V2!

Here is V1: Link


What dashcam should I get?

Budget - BlueSkySea B1W, Viofo A119 series, Viofo A129 series, etc

Premium - Korean dashcams like Thinkware, Blackvue, etc

The above is capacitor based dashcams. I rarely will recommend battery based dashcams. Please read below.


Lithium Batteries VS Capacitors

Capacitors are preferred to be used in hot countries like in Malaysia as they are more resistant to heat and have a longer lifespan than lithium batteries.

They are also more expensive to implement. Capacitors lose its stored charge over time, after a few days it can completely drain, resetting all settings like the time and date. As well the battery life is measured in seconds, not minutes.

Batteries are cheaper to implement. They can hold a larger charge, around 5-10X more than capacitors which allows you to use your dashcam like an action cam.

Batteries have the worse reliability and many manufacturers will use low-quality batteries which fail sooner. Depending on the battery, it may swell or leak or worst case scenario - explodes.

Most China dashcams are using batteries inside.


Micro SD cards

Attached Image Attached Image

The most tried and tested card is the Samsung Evo Plus (not the Evo+ as it is an older version)(Evo Select is actually an Evo Plus). Write speed varies on the card size: 32GB is 20MB/s write speed, 64GB is 60MB/s write speed and 128GB & above is 90MB/s write speed.

The new Sandisk Ultra A1 doesn't have the sudden death issue of the Sandisk Ultra.

Attached Image Attached Image Attached Image Attached Image

High Endurance cards - Samsung Pro Endurance, Transcend High Endurance, Kingston Endurance (announced 1st April 2019), Sandisk High Endurance (2019 version).

But do take note that some dashcams are very sensitive and may have an error when used with a slow write speed of micro SD cards.


Parking Mode




Batteries Packs




Where to install?

If you're the DIY type you can always follow some Youtube videos like the ones below and DIY. There are tons of installations videos on Youtube.

This is the easiest that I've used when I first installed my dashcam.


This will require some technical skills as there is a need to do hardwiring and cabling to the rear for the rear cam.


Or you can bring to a car accessories shop that you trust and get them to install for you.


Below are some authorized distributors/sellers/installers:

EA Autoworks - authorized Thinkware & Viofo seller & installer in Bukit Jalil. They are also selling iRoad dashcams if not mistaken.

WorldTech Auto Accessories - authorized Thinkware seller & installer in Penang.

Sicurez - authorized Thinkware & Viofo distributor & seller in Malaysia. They also install dashcams in their premium store in Sunway.

Blackvue MY - brought in by Zhapalang Motorsport

iRoad MY - authorized iRoad distributor & seller in Malaysia.

Have myself install with Iroad X9 and notice overall is not as clear as we seen from youtube footage. The video quality is not so clear as well and you can feel there is blurry on the video. I didn't notice much improvement on the video compares to my 2 years ago old Transcend dash cam video quality.

Another issue that I found is the windscreen reflection is too much for front and rear camera. I am wondering where can get the Polarizing filter to add-on the camera lens. Haha...this is my personal opinion.

I decide to take Iroad is due to the weather here in Malaysia is always too hot, and from review, Iroad has no problem on the heat. that's the reason there is a lot of Singaporean is using Iroad Dash Cam. Other than that is the Dash Cam stability.

But I truly disappointed for spending about RM13XX to get such low-quality video. My opinion is very personal. Just see any of Iroad X9 user here can share your thought too....

P/S: don't ever trust the youtube footage that all look very clear on the image and good color. When you see clearly, it is like totally no windscreen reflection at all too.

You have to consider the tint film factor. Tint film is the one giving reflection.

1) you have to place the device with camera lens as close to the windscreen to prevent/reduce reflection. If you hang at rear view mirror there maybe big gap >1cm. I use suction cup on windscreen and the lens is <1cm to the windscreen.

2) check your model if it has polarized / filter add-on. e.g. my viofo A119 has CPL Filter add-on option.

I can't do anything with the camera distance as it is fix and unable to adjust. It is using double sided tape and is with a fixed base as well. No choice lor...haha.
Polarized lens should able to solve the issue, but so far I can see there is for blackvue model. After use for a while sure will don't have any feeling anymore. tongue.gif

Not sure if you can get this or other CPL filters from Aliexpress and mod to your X9. CPL filter can help reduce the reflections a bit.

https://www.edr-auto.fr/shop/en/28-filtres-polarisants

But do be careful as iRoad is known to have issues like lens out of focus, lens blur and wifi dongle burnt. Last time they have a recall for their previous models before.

Youtube actually lowers the video quality from the original video after upload laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Actually, you paid rm1k+++ for full-featured Korean dashcam not just for the video quality.

There is saying that goes "A Higher Price ≠ Better Video Quality" laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Now Thinkware is more hot selling in Singapore. Before was Blackvue and iRoad.

No choice, since already get it and then use it until it can't work anymore. If there is a Polarized lens can be found, will be consider to trying on it. hmm.gif

I mean when I see from youtube footage showing the video shoot using X9 is superb clear. But the reality is so so to me. No surprised for the money I spend.
Now just hope the overall built is tahan lasak and can tahan the sunlight heat. My previous cam can auto off if too hot or memory card will suddenly can't read as well. Maybe cannot tahan too hot. vmad.gif

Everyone also assumes higher price and expectations for a higher video quality, otherwise why we have to pay more right? whistling.gif
Agree Blackvue and Thinkware is in the trend now, and also Marbella? cool2.gif

Cause all Korean dashcam is using capacitors instead of batteries since more than 3+++ years ago... That's why capacitor can resist heat better than a battery.

Marbella used to be famous but now no more.

I'm using Thinkware F800 Pro in my car. Bought it for around rm2.6k with 64GB micro SD card when first launched in Malaysia. Even though the video quality not as great for those with higher bit rates. But for the true parking mode, ADAS and other features it's worth it.

I'm on the waiting list for the Thinkware Q800 Pro which is coming this month hopefully laugh.gif

Hi, I am thinking to install 70mai Pro for the front screen and 70mai for the rear.

Is it OK for install 70mai as a rear cam?

Suggest tapping into a power source at the rear rather than run the cable to front no?

I have the exact set up: 70mai pro for the front, and 70mai for the rear. So far both works fine for me and image quality on both are pretty decent (pro better than non-pro of course). The 70mai at the rear is connected to a power port below the arm rest/compartment between the front seats on my Honda City, given that the stock cable is only long enough to reach there.

Pretty convenient to manage both dashcams through the 70mai mobile app too.

It's the most recommended dual dashcam of 2019 laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Got both app control and control on the dashcam.

Official set is rm799 from authorized distributor with 1 year 1on1 exchange warranty.

Online with 0 or 6 months warranty can get rm500-600.

Of course your phone cam is much better than your dashcam.

Have to see the specs. What lens? What sensor? How many MP? etc...

Cannot compare phone cam with dashcam.

It's the most recommended dual dashcam of 2019 laugh.gif  laugh.gif  laugh.gif

Got both app control and control on the dashcam.

Official set is rm799 from authorized distributor with 1 year 1on1 exchange warranty.

Online with 0 or 6 months warranty can get rm500-600.

Must get raw video files to see the actual quality.

Upload to Youtube usually the video is degraded a bit in video quality.

Better consider a dashcam that is durable in the heat. The micro SD card also need to consider a better card. As these 2 things that is working the most when recording.

Some tints might not withstand thinner. Might get damaged.

Another way is to heat the tape mount with a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the glue first so can easily pull off the windscreen. Parking in the hot sun for a few hours also does the same.

After that use clear acrylic double sided tape to mount. Strong and easier to peel off.

How about alchohol wipe? Or Googone?

I know some essential oil does the trick also like WD40. So does hand sanitizer gel espcecially those from hospital. laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

i previously use xiaomi dashcam, around 200 bucks or something, installed myself on my previous car.

it was mounted directly onto the windscreen with the original 3m double side tape came together with the dashcam. After a couple of years, sold the car, trying hard to remove the mount, couldn't and it stick to the windscreen (with tint) too hard, so end up remove it forcefully and ended up leaving a hole on the tint.

After getting a new car, got myself a 3m double side tape from taobao, was trying to install it onto the new car that has windscreen too. fear of the same damage, i then use the roadtax sticker that is self adhesive to the windscreen as the middle layer in between the tint and the double side tape, but mana tau, it didn't work as great as applying it directly.

What solutions you guys can suggest me? i don't wanna leave a hole on the tint on the new car.

I'm using clear acrylic double sided tape. They are strong when stuck on but easy to remove just by pulling and stretching the clear acrylic.

Another is to use heat to soften the tape mount before pulling or twisting. Another is the flossing technique using a nylon string.

Guys, I have a tried and tested DIY method to avoid sticking 3M double-sided tape directly on the windscreen.

Buy those cheap Fixate Gel pad and cut a piece out to the size of the dashcam mount and use it as a medium between the dashcam mount and your tinted windscreen. The Fixate Gel pads are very sticky and strong enough to hold the dashcam and its mount, and easy to remove without residue too.

what's an acrylic double sided tape? care to give some link to it so i can purchase directly? or the one that you're using.
Sticking it onto the windscreen (with tint) directly?

Noted on the few methods in removing the tape, will do it next time when i remove it.

I see, then have to cut into the shapes that you want?
mine is a 35mm round shape. so probably will have to DIY into such size?
This type is very strong isn't it? won't it destroy the tint when you remove it later?

Yes DIY cut to the shape you want.

These are easy to remove without sticky residue or tint byebye. Even easier if it heated like parked in the sun for a few hours.

I didn't get the Goo gone as I feel probably it will be similar to the sticker removal I use.

The result still visible, really don't have idea or maybe don't have a passion to work on it. When you rub with the chemical, the sticky will feel like melting, but it very fast will dry up. When it dry, the sticky will become hard and stay at the position again. Just worry the most I do, the position grow bigger. mad.gif ranting.gif vmad.gif

Will try to go to car detailing shop to see whether they can make it disappear. icon_question.gif icon_question.gif icon_question.gif

I didn't get the Goo gone as I feel probably it will be similar to the sticker removal I use.

The result still visible, really don't have idea or maybe don't have a passion to work on it. When you rub with the chemical, the sticky will feel like melting, but it very fast will dry up. When it dry, the sticky will become hard and stay at the position again. Just worry the most I do, the position grow bigger.  mad.gif  ranting.gif  vmad.gif

What tint film you have on your car that you are afraid to use thinner to clean the glue?
Maybe you ask the tinting shop whether you can use thinner on their tint film.
Pity you, spent so much still cannot get the glue out.

Are you guys talking about 3M residue?

I usually stick the 3M permanent double sided tape on to the "next service" window sticker. So if i need to replace windscreen or change car, i dont have to remove or worry about residue.

I cant use the clear tape because i park outside no roof. too hot cannot stick.

Another way is to get the suction cup mount. However there may be incompatibility in terms of the sizing of the dashcam's peg vs suction mount...but its noting that a hot glue gun cant solve. If your feeling DIY.

Plus side is u now have option to remove it at will with suction cup.

I've done the above for my B1W using my old ass suction mount from G1W days.

Yes, pity me to try out so many kinds of method. But all the chemical is left over previously. Not purposely go to buy that.
Just not sure the thinner will wash off the color of the tint. I know it might not damage the tint paper, but my concern is the coating. cool2.gif

i previously use xiaomi dashcam, around 200 bucks or something, installed myself on my previous car.

it was mounted directly onto the windscreen with the original 3m double side tape came together with the dashcam. After a couple of years, sold the car, trying hard to remove the mount, couldn't and it stick to the windscreen (with tint) too hard, so end up remove it forcefully and ended up leaving a hole on the tint.

After getting a new car, got myself a 3m double side tape from taobao, was trying to install it onto the new car that has windscreen too. fear of the same damage, i then use the roadtax sticker that is self adhesive to the windscreen as the middle layer in between the tint and the double side tape, but mana tau, it didn't work as great as applying it directly.

What solutions you guys can suggest me? i don't wanna leave a hole on the tint on the new car.
*
I think you can stick a pcs of transparent stickers like the road tax plastic sticker or next service plastic quality, or something like tint can cut to size maybe slightly bigger than the 3M tape area. Tape it nicely and it should work.
Otherwise you will end up like me seeking for help here or to think of way to getting rid of those sticky residue whistling.gif whistling.gif whistling.gif

My experience with suction cup is, it will not hold and easily get loose when it is under a hot sun for quite some time. Maybe due to the suction cup rubber turn harder.
No issue and will not damage the tint....

Suction mount will fall every few weeks. Faster if in the sun.

Suction mount does leave a mark too after long term use.

There is a circular plate that you can use with the suction mount but that plate is stuck on using mounting tape sweat.gif sweat.gif sweat.gif

I think the best solution for you guys may wait for new technology which can levitate your dashcam in thin air, as to ensure your tint is in pristine condition.

Anyway, I guess you could look into rear view mirror mount, but compatibility may be even more of an issue. But later your rear view mirror plastic got marred pulak whistling.gif

for the past 3 months i use the cut road tax plastic sticker, but it didnt hold for long, 2nd attempt lagi worse, drop off in one day. maybe because i cut it only slightly bigger and the sticker doesn't get enough strength to hold it and dropped. Maybe I should try using the whole piece instead and see if this can do the trick. will keep you guys posted on this one.

Actually I feel that dashcam should be pre-installed (factory fitted) in all cars for safety purposes.

They should make it as a guideline to have it as a per-requisite.

Anyway, a good dashcam is not gonna cost a bomb, factor into the selling price of the car and possibly loan cover major partial of it.

Preferably, car makes should get things done like that. I believe it would be a common thing 5 years down the road as they see the proliferation of dashcams.

Neater, less clutter, less chances of wire failures, safer (especially those that need to route wires near air bags for rear cams).

Only High Endurance cards are for use in dashcam or surveillance cameras. But Sandisk High Endurance is only 20mb/s write speed. Some dashcams will get error using it. Others to consider Transcend High Endurance, Kingston Endurance and Samsung Pro Endurance. Kingston and Samsung have 90mb/s write speed. But HE cards are not cheap FYI.

Other cards will void warranty if used in dashcams.

Another to try is the new Sandisk Ultra A1 cards.

Anyway tested Samsung Evo Plus is the best and value for money to be used in dashcams eventhough void card warranty.

yeah, kudos to X70, that's a way forward. I think dashcam has became an essential instead nowadays, anything can happen on the road. if we have the evidence, they can't do much about it.

How about leaving a dedicated spot for us to install the dashcam on our own? a USB port there, so we don't have to pull the whole wire down. haha

Hahahaha... How I wish... Some cars do have USB ports... Anyway most SC will tell you install dashcam will void your car warranty. Only theirs won't void warranty.

Only High Endurance cards are for use in dashcam or surveillance cameras. But Sandisk High Endurance is only 20mb/s write speed. Some dashcams will get error using it. Others to consider Transcend High Endurance, Kingston Endurance and Samsung Pro Endurance. Kingston and Samsung have 90mb/s write speed. But HE cards are not cheap FYI.

Other cards will void warranty if used in dashcams.

Another to try is the new Sandisk Ultra A1 cards.

But not all HE card can get in malaysia right?... I only rarely see a white color HE card.. Can't recall what brand.
Toshiba I think.

The hardwire dashcam installation method may have a stronger case for SC to "void warranty", definitely not the USB plug-in method which is just like charging mobile phone in the car biggrin.gif

My ciggie port spoilt and SC blamed the USB charger I used cause it. Cannot claim warranty. Have to pay to replace the ciggie port in my car.

Until now still using the same USB charger by Aukey.

As long as no wire cut. If by the time anything goes wrong and require to claim from SC, then remove everything you install in accessories shop before you go for the claim. They have no reason can know what you did before.

Guess they say because it is not a "dedicated" 12V socket, hence anything other than using it to light the ciggie will voild warranty....

What is the problem with your ciggie port?
If no power, then most likely fuse blown.

You should ask your SC is the car cigg port is for display only. Cannot use on certain charger? Stupid SC. bangwall.gif
Or SC should list out what brand can use what brand cannot use in user manual. It dosen't make sense at all.

One of blurjoey's budget recommendations... Thing is.. I'm still torn between having a rearward facing cam or not.. Between "messing up" looks and dealing with how to hide the cables. Currently I'm using a shade and like having a clean look out the glass. How would a cam there affect it.. Will I lose the shade too? and if I must.. then means I have to find time to tint the car properly too.. But can't do that yet.. cuz you know....In the midst of having that resolved amicably now.. So can't mess until it's all over..

I understand your predicament bro. Best of luck on that issue.

I parallel park in this thread as am looking for a 2-channel dashcam to replace the mini 0906 which have been behaving erratically after the warranty period expired. bangwall.gif
Considering the Viofo A129 or Thinkware X700 as they both have LCD screen which I consider as quite helpful when the missus is on the steering wheel.

Best to get a standalone reverse camera. Not those all in ones.

Eagle-i is a China rebrand/OEM dashcam. Overpriced.

I'm using F800 Pro.

TX9's front cam's 3K resolution is good.

TX9's ADAS is almost as accurate as F800 Pro. But ADAS don't work without the GPS module.

During testing, there were a few times the car battery protection kicked in even when parked for an hour and shut down the TX9. Maybe firmware issue?

Also F800 Pro, the GPS and wifi are built-in. TX9 is external and have to purchase separately.

F800 Pro has more function and the Thinkware's famous true parking mode.

I'm waiting for my Thinkware Q800 Pro to arrive laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

I was reviewing it but the proprietary JDR file format was a bit of a hassle to get out the video files for me to upload to YouTube even using their software on Windows. And I didn't want to download using the app as the quality might not be the same?

I still have the 128GB microSD card with the JDR video files in there...

TX9 copied the Thinkware QX800 for the LED ring.

LED ring can be turned off.

Also, iRoad using the same hardwire kit as Thinkware. So can use both brands without changing the hardwire kit.

TX9 copied the Thinkware QX800 for the LED ring.

LED ring can be turned off.

Also, iRoad using the same hardwire kit as Thinkware. So can use both brands without changing the hardwire kit.

IC...since the hardwire kit is the same, then will be easy if one day thinks to swap with Thinkware.
For the security LED, ya I am never turned on. cool2.gif

What is the record file format in Thickware? MP4? Can it set the recording duration? For Iroad I think is only 24 secs and is standard.
Iroad is come with JDR file format and then need to convert it into AVI using apps. JDR is only able to open by using Iroad apps. So will be a bit leceh since no option for another file format. confused.gif

By the way what you mean by Thinkware True Parking Mode?

Thinkware is using the mp4 file format. All Thinkware is set to 1-minute video file. Cannot change.

JDR is a propritery file format for iRoad dashcams. That's why I can get any good videos as I need to combine using video editor and quality will be lost after editing.

Thinkware dashcam has the best parking mode among Korea dashcam brands.
