    I would expect good quality as they are one of the larger cell phone manufacturers in China.

    There is another thread about GO PROS as dash cams where another member bought one as a gift. Maybe he has heard feedback?

    Check out techmoan's channel on YouTube. He's done a full review of pretty much all commonly used dashcams.

    I once bought a $90 camera from a Florida website. It was really crappy and the website was a facade for a China business. Shipping back to China was costly and risky so I tried getting relief from PayPal. Turns out the PayPal resolution process was just a robot. There are no people to help with a PayPal problem.

    Next I got a DOD LS300W which has been very good. It is now discontinued and the recommended replacement is LS460W. With added GPS, it is expensive. But you want something like that with the ability to return it if not satisfied.

    Buy the Spytec A118C. It's low profile and uses a capacitor instead of a battery. It works great during the day and night.

    I bought a G1W-CB off of aliexpress. Only problem I had was that it would act up in the winter. Here's a video from today lol

    You should get new wipers to get rid of that squeak.

    I also have a G1W. No problems in 3 years.

    (Now that I've been away from it for the week, it will have broken some how)
