Since I can’t be sure I can get to the coast for the installation, I picked up the Best Buy bundle. I’ll let it sit on my desk for a few days before I crack the seal… until I’m sure I want to install it! I have plenty of microSD around for GoPro, cell phones and DSLR, so I’m not too concerned about it being included or not. The PDF manual infers that a microSD card is included though, so I’ll take a closer look at the box. Recording front and back in highest quality and frame rate is supposed to allow 3 hours on a 16 GB card. If I’m wanting to catch incidents rather than record my entire trip, this would be more than enough.
They consider the microSD card to be a ‘consumable’. The continuous recording must literally wear out the cards and regular replacement is recommended.
Looking at the PDF installation manual, the first thing that jumps out at me… “Do not operate unit while driving”. Hmmm. Sure hope they mean “do not play with the buttons when driving”… LOL
