anyone looking for a good dash cam

I recently bought a dash cam called Roadhawk HD, wanna share with you guys. Before that i was using GoPro, video was great but not that convenient to use since I had to manually turn on off, and clear the old video clips. For me, this dash cam is perfect to use without worrying the above issues. It has auto on off, looping video, and many other great features.


The image quality is impressive, 1080p 30fps. I've used some cheap ones with blurry images, but this is nothing like those. When I looked at the specs, I found that the processor in roadhawk is the same as in my gopro hero3. Everything is built in like the gps, gravity sensor, microphone, and speaker. The audio indicator is very cool, especially when I start the car, i feel like my car is telling me its ready to go.


It also has a media player. When I play the video, it will show my driving speed, 3 axis force, google map, and coordinates. You can disable the loop to make it work as an action camera. Now i use it more than my gopro when shooting driving videos.

Sample video (me driving)

Official video (very cool GTR)

Youtube has lots of videos, just search "roadhawk hd". sometimes its really fun to watch!

btw, they sent me a $100 off coupon on Amazon so i decided to give it a shot. The listed price is $299 but I got it $199. And then I found one on ebay too, without any code needed.

Im not sure if it still works, but try it if you are interested. code: TIMESPEC.

Re: anyone looking for a good dash cam

After reading the post i must agree it is a good gadget to have in the car. I have a few concerns about the processor and quality of the gadget. Can you please post the price range sot that i can decide about this impressive gadget.
