Vafru Wedge Car Dash Cam is offered with a 12 month domestic warranty by the distributor- Foscam, which adds to its great value making it one of the best deals out there. According to customers, the instructions on the user manual could be better and more informative but is quite an easy unit to operate anyway and you will work it all out by trial and error and a little time. It is designed to be used upside down- like you hang it on the windshield and if you happen to use it on your dash the recorded image will be upside down and you can certainly flip the video on the media player you use on your computer. It takes up very little space, is very easy to use despite the not so good instructions on the manual, the way it runs automatically when you start the car is cool, has solid build quality and the video quality is very good- crisp and clear even in nightvision and it is highly recommended especially for people that drive a lot and will give you that extra sense of security.
