I have been using Samsung extreme cards.

Did you sort this? Still happy with the Samsungs?

Looking at 256 card from Dashcams Genurine Blackvuew is $300, or the Samsung from ebay AU $80-89.95

Hi Bird
I was unable to revive my old dashcam. It would not detect a card at all.
. I replaced it with another Blackvue, mainly because of the wiring which i had professionally installed and the new model could use the same connections. I think the Blackvues are a good unit. The one one that died was over 3 years old and had gone through some high temps and dust.
The new 750 unit came with a Blackvue 32gb card that seems ok so far. They do tell you to to a built in clean/ delete of the card every few weeks now.
They also now say that a Samsung Pro is the same as their card. The Samsungs seem to be a good card overall.
Although the price of the Pro cards sem outrageous. The extreme cards seem reasonable and the cards themselves dont seem to die.

Cheers and Merry Christmas
Andrew

I recently purchased a Gator Barrel Cam.
It uses its own WiFi to connect to my phone which is how you view the files and set up the correct position for the cam
It also has a sensor so if you want a pic taken while driving, simply wave your hand under it.
It’s quite clear and came with an 8 gig card for $139 at SCA

Fairly good deal on Blackvues with free installation - Sydney only.

We've taken up to 30% off the entire Blackvue range - some are even priced AT COST! With each unit sold, we'll provide a FREE Power Magic Pro and if you're local, we'll install it for you for free! If you're not, hit us up on Facebook Messenger for something that'll sweeten the deal even more!

Bird - if you bought them on your credit card - check and see if your card has a price protection feature - where in this situation you claim on the credit card the difference in price if purchased within a certain period of time and the item goes on sale somewhere...  Usually offered on Platinum cards etc.
