A little tough on settup and you need to get the exposure optimized. I used -.7. Clunky for a smaller car windshield. I have an Audi A4 2013. I lease it so hardwiring was not an option. It sits on a bean bag on the dash. It works ok but either can't see the screen or video is upside down. I really don't need the screen except on settup. Temporary wiring to cig lighter but at least I don't have a wire hanging in front of the windshield.
The new DVR-207GS: accept no substitutes! This dashcam builds on the success of the legendary DVR-027. While there are many cheap knock-offs, this is the genuine edition; check the firmware version and G-sensor menu photos to the left. Of course, also check out the full feature list, and watch our review and sample footage videos.
The 207GS is our most affordable HD dashcam. This model sports 720p high definition video at 30 frames per second.
The flip-down screen is a great feature of the DVR-207 GS. Use the screen for setup or to make sure you are recording, or flip the screen up to prevent distractions or for when you remove the dashcam from your vehicle. The screen also rotates up to 270 degrees in either direction (left or right), allowing for a wide variety of placement and viewing options.
The "GS" in DVR-207GS's name stands for G-Sensor. This is the first model in this style to offer the added benefits of a built-in G-Sensor. The G-Sensor will detect an impact and automatically lock (protect) the active video file from being overwritten accidentally later.
The 207GS also improves on the DVR-027 in one more important area: there are no longer any recording gaps between video files. The DVR-207GS features seamless recording; this eyewitness doesn't miss a thing!
Outputs on the DVR-207GS include USB 2.0, and an HDMI output for watching videos directly on your high definition television.
