Set up was minimal and easy. Basically, mount the device, insert the Micro SD card, power on, set the time and date, and GO! Playback using the SD card adaptor worked flawlessly on a Windows 7 desktop and Macbook Pro. I can very easily turn it towards any angle I want to record.
Today, I was driving to work and a Cadillac veered across three lanes of traffic to make an illegal U-turn. I braked in time but can't help being thankful for clear cut, incontrovertible evidence of the other driver's wrongdoing and recklessness.
Said law enforcement buddy evaluated this incident after viewing:
Completely and utterly his fault, you are not even required by law to attempt to brake as his turn was EXTREMELY sudden, the only reason you did not hit him, in my opinion, was because you had a good distance on him (of about a car length). If you were going slightly faster and closed the distance on him, you probably wouldn't been able to get around him and more than likely destroyed him. If you did impact him, and the video or physical evidence showed absolutely zero braking or swerving and only showed the Cadillac's illegal turns/reckless driving there would almost be no investigation.
Folks, these things are cheap insurance and a no brainer. Get one for every vehicle you one. You may need it someday and it's like a gun; when you need it, you really need it.
