I got the C1 and C2 last year. The benefit of the C2 is that it comes with suction cup, and allows me to turn. Therefore, you don't necessary put at the center of the car. You can put it a put it anywhere and adjust the angle you need. The C1 only stick and doesn't turn left or right. However, C1 has metal case and C2 has just plastic.

In terms of video quality, they are the same to me. However, even at HD 1080p @ 30fps, you still cannot see the license plate of the other cars well. In order to see the license plate of other car, it has to be quite close to you, and not moving as fast speed.

I tried using 720p @60fps, Although the clarifty is about the same (not able to see the license plate of other car), it is better in terms of seeing more clear in fast movement when pause. You can actually have a better "Guess-timate" on what's the plate is.

Nonetheless, it is good enough to capture a general sense of surrounding in the case of accident. I would connect it to a large portable USB batter for parking mode. I don't prefer hard wiring to your car. I tried that. Using a 18,000 mah battery, it can record non-stop almost 2 days.

Oh.. one last thing, Anker bundle the 2-port USB charger with the C1 and C2. But not the newer A1. So, get C2 may be a better fit for most people.

I purchase it for my wife's car and it works good. My brother in law has it for his car as well. Record the lady running a red light and hitting him.

Horrible camera. Keep on going in Emergency or Parking Mode automatically/all of a sudden while driving and then back to normal. Starts making weird noise when it goes into such mode. Have to format almost every month to get it out of it. Wont recommend it

How about some feedback from any Slickdeals members who have owned this Dashcam? For $45, I am intrigued and very lucky interested in making this my first Dashcam. So, if anyone on here owns this, or has owned it and used it, some feedback about it would definitely be appreciated.

And much thanks to the OP for posting this deal on here!

I have it too, bought it when it came out. Great little camera. Good quality picture, hides behind the mirror, very inconspicuous. Easy to install. There is an app for it too. It's been quite a few months, no issues so far. For $45 it's a steal.

We got this, but the one that comes with a 32gb memory card. Works great, relatively easy to connect via wifi to get videos. Clear, high quality video. Main annoyance is the inability to disable the ding dong noise that alerts you if there is a recording for bump. Basically everytime I get in the car.

I lied, we have the C1 model. But same idea.

Anyone know how this compares with the popular YI 2.7" Screen Full HD 1080P60 165 Wide Angle Dashboard Camera. Both are about the same price. Looking to get my first dash cam.

Thank you very much for the feedback, as well. I've been wanting a dashcam for years, literally, but just haven't actually made myself buy one. I have a little extra money right now, so I'm seriously thinking about purchasing this one while it's available at such a good price. So, I really appreciate the feedback from y'all!
