Super happy so far,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wide Angle Mobius ActionCam 1080p HD Camera With Dash Cam Kit (V3 / 820 mAh / Lens C2 / No Memory) (Electronics)
Great value for a dash cam and nice that this kit comes with everything you need for just a few dollars more. Read other Mobius reviews for general info but specifically for this one after one month of ownership:
* Wide-angle lens is a good choice here. I haven't tried the standard lens but have several action cams where I usually don't run wide-angle. I think it make sense for a dash cam; can see a bit more.
* Kit is very convenient. Needed the mount/holder, long cable, cig adapter and ~4 mount clips (and a micro SD card). Other stuff is optional.
* The long powered USB cord just barely fit for my compact SUV. I think I'd go with a foot longer in a bigger car. BTW, search youtube for 'mount dashcam hide wires' to see really slick ways to hide the cabling. I was worried people would see this as too obvious (and maybe break-in) but it almost looks stock or perhaps maybe like a low-end radar detector. Anyway - not worried any more.
Only other general things:
* Replaying footage is a bit of a pain. I've only done it a couple of times but I've ejected the card rather than remove the camera but it's tight to get in there.
* It will help you a bit if you are: slight techy (for cam config/software install), a little mechanical (for the install/wiring), and not new to cams (I don't know if I'd suggest this as a first cam for someone that doesn't work with videos/HD/etc.

Before buying this one, had you considered the actual Mobius official re-seller site at https://www.mobius-actioncam.com/ ? The Pro package there has a 2 hour 820mah battery instead of the 80 minute battery (520 mah) on these others here on Amazon, suggesting that all the others here are selling the first version, not the new version. And add the new Pro version with the wide angle lens but including a water-proof case (not seen on Amazon anywhere by me), with the current ACTIONCAM-BUCKS 10% discount, that brings the price down to pretty close to this one.
