After several months of use, including cross country miles, the Vantrue has performed flawlessly. As previously noted, a bluetooth connection for updating the programming would be beneficial instead of removing the SD card for updating. The parking modesoperate as intended, and easily changed from movement detection to collision. I haven't used the low bit-rate mode yet, which constantly records. The camera is powered via the OBD port using a splitter cable to power other devices.
Safety matters. We believe a dash cam with top quality and strong performance is very necessary for every vehicle driver nowadays. That's what we do at VANTRUE, developing high end dash cams and providing top level services.
