Product Description

The Spy Gear Spy Video Car VX6 is a spy mobile combining top features from all of the Spy Video vehicles. Unlike conventional remote-control cars, the VX6 allows you to see what it sees with real-time digital video displayed directly on the color LCD screen. Now kids can keep an eye on the action, no matter where it happens. Ideal for budding spies aged 8 years and up, the VX6 offers infrared night-vision technology, so kids can complete covert missions even after the sun goes down.

Dual Toggles and Wireless Video Feed for Optimum Control

Kids will be driving like a pro in no time using the handheld remote control, which offers complete maneuverability with its dual toggling controllers. The steering controls allow kids to operate the vehicle with precision over a variety of surfaces.

The VX6's most impressive feature, however, is its small color LCD screen that allows you to see everything the car is seeing in real time. The video transmitted wirelessly from a camera mounted on the front of the vehicle is surprisingly clear, giving kids the ultimate edge during spy missions. The LCD screen also indicates the battery life and the strength of the signal between the car and remote control.

The camera on the vehicle is stationary with no option to tilt or move in any direction. This limits your ability to see obstacles through the LCD screen that may be in the vehicle's path.

Night Vision Lets Kids Spy in the Dark

Young spies can take their reconnaissance under the cover of darkness with the VX6's infrared night-vision technology. With a push of a button on the remote control, kids will be able to see video on the LCD screen even in dark rooms.

The night-vision LED is mounted right next to the camera to help kids capture valuable nighttime surveillance. Now kids can send their VX6 out on top secret missions whenever duty calls, day or night.

Strong RC Signal Works Through Walls

Walls or solid barriers won't interrupt kids' spy adventures. The VX6's signal strength can transmit through walls and solid objects, so kids can operate the vehicle from a favorite hideout, even if it's in another room.

Sturdy Build for Lasting Operation

The VX6 feels sturdy in your hand and does not have many loose parts that are easily breakable. The antennas on both the vehicle and remote control are short and sturdy and do not need to be extended for operation.

Our testers found that the car does not move terribly fast, but its treaded tires give it good traction on carpet and concrete floors allowing it to cover ground easily.

Despite its durability, the VX6 is not meant to be driven through sand, water (even small puddles), or snow, and driving down stairs or off curbs should be avoided.

If you are wanting to compare the original Spy Trakr and its features to the VX-6 to make a decision between the two, that is what my review mostly covers.

The advertising I read about the VX-6 between several different websites said this product had "all of the best features of the Trakr" and that is actually what sold me. With no reviews, and little information about this model or its features vs. the original Spy Trakr, I went ahead and took the plunge to get the product with hopes that; for the price I bought it for (which was around 99 bux after tax and shipping from elsewhere), it might end up being an updated model to the Trakr itself. However, when I received the item it was none of that!

What the VX-6 is in reality is a very bare-bones and durable version of an RC vehicle with live camera features. This model in comparison to the Spy Trakr has very few features.
-The camera is stationary. The info says the camera can be adjusted and it cannot. There is just no option to move it or tilt it.

-On the hand-held remote, there is an option for night vision and regular day vision. Night vision looks pretty cool. For regular daytime, the color is like on those old monochrome televisions. Not great for really seeing much. It's almost just like the night vision! Geez!

-There is no option to connect this to a computer for any reason such as syncing apps, programming it to do certain things etc. the way the Spy Trakr does.

Having expected to receive something similar to the Trakr and it not meeting my expectations for that based on the ads I read, I have rated it 3 stars.

Now, on its own and not comparing it to any particular product, I thought it ran pretty clean and appeared to be quite durable.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The short version of this review: This toy is really neat. My kids think its "awesome". Its amazing that a $60 toy can do this. If your kids are into spy stuff they will think you rock. It DOES have some limitations, but my kids haven't noticed them... even if I have.

The long version:
Overview: Owning the Spy Gear Spy Video Car is a bit like playing a video game. You can drive the car into other rooms and see where you are going. My kids love the idea of sitting in one room of the house while driving all over the house. In fact this is what they do. They haven't started using it for spying. Although, as you will read, its ability to actually spy is very limited. The kids LOVE IT despite its shortcomings. I don't think they are even aware it has shortcomings.

The good:
1) Night vision feature works very well. In fact, we often used it during the day if we drove into a darker corner.
2) Battery life was very good. We got several HOURS of play out of our 10 duracell batteries. Personally, I'm shocked. But we only play with it for about 30 minutes at a time, I don't know how long the batteries last under continuous use.
3) Camera clarity is better than I expected. We can recognize people's faces and read license plates on cars.
4) Signal strength: has been excellent in all our tests. The video signal easily goes through walls and has a very long range outside (NOTE: instructions say INSIDE USE ONLY).

Neither good nor bad:
Speed: This thing pokes slowly along, like a turtle with some hustle. I would say it plods along at 3 to 4 miles an hour. This is not a "CON". Its logical that a spy device move slowly.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The first thing you will notice if you buy this product is the packaging. The manufacturers have made sure that both the car and the controller is in no way going to move in the packaging. Unfortunately this leads to a little bit of time on unpacking it. The car is actually screwed into the cardboard backing and the controller has 4 lock nuts locking it into the cardboard backing. Both of these are then covered with tape so it's quite frustrating to actually get the car and the controller free of the packaging.
Once free however it's very easy to setup, simply unscrew the battery compartments on both the car and the controller, insert your batteries (this takes 10x AA batteries, 6 for the car and 4 for the controller) and flick the switch to turn both the car and controller on and away you go.
The bad parts about this toy are :-
1. The batteries don't actually last very long so over time this is going to be an expensive toy (cheaper to use rechargeables).
2. The screen size on the controller is tiny (only about 1 inch).
3. The resolution isn't high at all (I was playing with this in my living room and had a hard time actually determining where the car actually was and what the camera was looking at. It was as if I didn't know my own living room).
4. The camera in the car is fixed, you can't move it (angle it), zoom it in or out etc.

Both the car and the controller are well built, will survive a few knocks and should last quite a while.
If you can live with the above points (they are actually fairly minor (this is a toy after all and not really a piece of spy equipment) except for the battery issue) then this is actually quite a fun little toy. Recommended.
