I have TWO models that look nearly identical to the YI Rear View Mirror dash cam.
They were purchased from two different vendors, they are branded slightly differently - and - they have the same exact problems.
When looking in the rear view mirror, you expect to see the REAR of the car (not the front.)
There is no way to change the default view. You can change the view by cycling through a series of buttons to get the rear view image to display, and the manufacturer continues to insist that hitting all those buttons every single time you start the car is acceptable. Well, it isn’t.
• Does the YI version of the dash cam default to the REAR of the car?
• If not, can you change the default ONCE and it remembers?
Loop record breaks the moment you save changes that are different than the factory settings. SO, for example, factory settings are recording conversations inside the vehicle. That is actually illegal in some states. Changing that setting will then break loop record.
What is loop record? It means when storage runs low, the camera will record over top of the oldest recording, so you never actually run out of space. If you do not want your conversations recorded, then you must be prepared to manually delete the SD card often. Not good.
PLEASE tell me that the YI version defaults the mirror to see the rear of the car, and you can change the settings w/o breaking any functionality?
