*** UPDATE November 2013 at bottom of review ***

youtube.com/watch?v=oITJ2xGBuT8 - YouTube compresses video - quality is actually much better than shown on YouTube.

I am new to dash cams but not to mobile technology.

Its pretty cool - it has WiFi, GPS, 3-axis gyro, accelerometer, shock sensors and ambient light sensor. It records to a MicroSD card or you can download directly via WiFi to your iDevice or Android.

I bought this 500GW-HD about a week ago and I have been fiddling with it via Telnet/SSH/FTP, iPhone 5 & iPad 4 iOS app, Android app (rooted Kindle 2 running Jelly Bean 4.2) and the MicroSD card directly. I am primarily a Mac and Linux user on the desktop, although I loaded Windows 7 on my Macbook Air & iMac to look at the Blackvue Viewer Windows application (which is much better than the Mac version, BTW. More on this later)

My first impressions of the Blackvue DR500GW-HD are, by and large, positive. The 500GW-HD gets warm, but never hot. The camera mount is solid and very adjustable, the angle of view is excellent and the video quality is much better than I expected, even at night. Audio is crystal clear and in-sync. I expect that Firmware updates will fix/mitigate some of the more glaring defects discussed below.

It has some kinks, which is to be expected as this technology is still maturing. In particular, the firmware is not actually updated with any changes you make on the SD card (config.ini), the camera just reads the config.ini and uses that. But not always. Sometimes, after a power down/power up, the SSID and pwd will be forgotten or some of your other settings (timezone etc.) will be ignored. This may be a Blackvue Mac vs.

Excellent video resolution and easy to install behind the rear view mirror. Had a small problem with missing installation hardware however it was resolved promptly. Keep in mind the business is not located in the USA (DGTL SYSTEMS Incheon, Korea) so communications can be a bit testy. Highly recommend a 32 GB SanDisk Ultra SD card to allow for a decent record time without high compression recording. The GPS annotation on screen with vehicle speed, time and location is great for citations issued by over zealous Highway Patrol officers who think they know how to use a Ladar gun in traffic. Video can provide a good defense for rolling stop and red light camera citations too. If used properly could really make a patrol officer look incompetent in court and it's perfectly legal.

Taking nothing away from this unit, it's top of the line. My issue is that it was sold to me with the specs of another unit. Check the onboard specs before you buy. Also, you can't monitor this unit in real time with a smartphone.

Very high quality product. I have used several other cheaper models. They work ok, this one is worth the extra money.

I would give it 5 stars, if I could figure out how to set the time. The only time setting option I can find allows you to set the time zone. I read the directions, I googled it........ nothing.......I checked the frequently asked questions, I can not find anything on time setting. It is off by over 8 hours. If It's supposed to it automatically, it's not doing it, it would really be nice if there was someone to ask........

Otherwise, it takes great videos........

I finally figured out on my own, the GPS is supposed to set the correct date and time on start up. I took it out of the car and brought it in the house and powered it with a 110 to 12 volt converter. After the startup, the time was still off by over 8 hours. I pushed the reset button on the back of the unit after formatting the card for the third or forth time, this time it had the correct time. The only help from pittasoft Was an "E-Mail" that stated "after I send them the serial number and they verify it it was officially distributed, then they would get back to me. I have not gotten back to me yet.

I read before I bought it, in a lot of reviews, that the unit gets hot when it's recording. I was not prepared for just how hot. I have serious concerns about how long it will last,

Finally heard back from pittasoft, after making me send them the serial number, they finally responded back with: Contact your official distributor for repair.........Do you think they really needed the serial number to tell me that?

Oddly disappointing. Even in full HD mode, you can't read license plates, even parked behind them and not in motion. Maybe because the field of view is so wide, you can't see that kind of detail. And for me, the mirror's mount on the windshield blocks part of the view, unless you mount the Blackvue completely beneath the mirror, where it isn't so stealthy any more. Then there's the automatic exposure, which seems to be hunting all the time and changing the brightness, even in daylight with no big changes in scenery, and the hood taking up about the bottom quarter of the screen, so I'm not just looking at the sky. And the video play application, which blacks out between each file that is being played. Maybe I'm just spoiled by some new GPS units, but this one places me off to the side of the roads I'm on more often than anything else, too. Could be it is not a WAAS-GPS, unlike most of the car nav systems these days? And sometimes, with the phone two feet away from the Blackvue in the car, they can't find each other "weak signal".

Oddly disappointing for the price. Not a bad unit, but a full-HD picture should show license plates clearly! Maybe if your state has perfect black-on-white plates it will be good enough for you.
