Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Good looking - good finishing - seems solid;
Good quality wide angle image.
It has a small screen that helps to see some footage.
Good suction cup/suppor - it is still there !
Turns on and off authomatically.
Cons:
The screen has to be turned off every time you start your car - you may leave it on, but is useless.
Microphone need improvement.
I didn't much use for the IR leds, maybe when I'll drive at night with the light off ...
The two minutes recording time per file.
No configuration menu and if you don't know the secret you never set the clock and date ...
Other:
It is not exactly usefull unless you witness or is involved in an accided, but if you are, it may be helpful - provided that it wasn't your fault ...
You can capture some nice scenes tough - the image is sharp.
Bottomline:
To set the clock and date, save a TXT file (you can use Notepad, for example) in your memory card called time.txt and write in the file the current date and time as this:
2011.04.19 18:23:59
Save. Put the card in the camera and turn it on.
Voila - the date and time is set.
Tip - when writing the time, add some additional seconds to allow you to turn on the camera etc ...
