I would love to replace my old one for something that could get 360. Anyone have this one? Or recommend something around this price?

A lot of the reviews say this thing overheats and shutdown, probably something to consider if you live somewhere that gets hot in the summer or if you park your car outdoors

Crap.

It also uses a battery, not a super-capacitor, so that is a huge problem for those with temperature extremes.

This review goes over the camera pretty well, I would say this is a pass.... Comments on the video are not great either. I guess the only plus is the night recording is not bad.

Looked good, but with poor resolution on the front that makes it hard to even read a license plate makes this useless.

They don't even mention the resolution it records at plus from one of the photos it looks like huge fisheye view all around so you probably can see from which direction impact happened it but as far as clearly identifying what happened beforehand from distance including any license plates it will be close to impossible to see. The only good camera for 360 I think would be what Google uses for street recording lol (and it might be multiple cameras hooked up through super specs hardware).
Personally I prefer battery powered ones since mine can record 20 or so 30sec clips while I don't have to hook it up to power bank or always on 12V car outlet. The battery did die after 2 years but I just got better quality and slightly higher capacity for less than $10 to replace it (I'm in NE area so I'm sure for south super capacitor is better option although if it overheats during recording it won't matter what powers it. On mine I was able to add small aluminum heat sink to the CPU when I was changing battery and so far it has been going strong (with Samsung pro endurance, had issues with different cards )

1080 360 degrees is terrible resolution. It's basically a fish eye recording and ao effective resolution of the front of the car is probably around 640x480..

Was hoping to find a 360 camera or bi directional. I have a Viio now but that only covers the front. Any recommendations?

Agreed. Resolution is SUPER important in a dash cam. You'll want to see as many details as possible.

I don't think there is any, is there? Without getting the fish eye view/recording.
I think you have to setup your own, front, back, left, right cameras.

Costco has 2 year warrenty and Costco-Visa should have additional 2 years so you get 4 years. I am leaning towards giving it a try.
