Interesting...I reserved it. The only thing is there are bound to be issues with new tech.
So, since I posted the link, I did some digging. It's apparently their second one. Also, it has a developer API so people can write their own apps for it.


I reserved it too. Hope it's all it's cracked up to be. If not, I may make my own.

Yep. I'm even wondering if I need to bother. I am thinking of just in-lining a voltage cut-off from my current battery. Heck, it runs my 45w fridge for 2 days (normal weather) without issue. It cost the same $319 ($304 actually) as the 6,000 mAh battery - and it's a 76 Ah instead, that can be used multi-purpose (fridge, parking mode, etc).

I just pledged for the dride with rear camera. I missed the early bird 15% discount which was only available last night. Figures, one night I didn't check my mail before lights out.

I like that the head unit is compact with no screen and the rear cam is wireless to the front. Just don't feel like dissembling the interior to run a data cable all the way to the front. Will have to determine what the parasitic draw is before deciding on battery backup.

Delivery won't be until January (or possibly never).

I ordered the three cam "Pro" package:
Font Screenshot Parallel Number Rectangle


I didn't need the memory, but, to get the cell unit and all three cameras, the price was about the same with the 128GB memory. So, I will supplement that with my own 256GB cards, and have even more, lol!

Nothing interesting happens inside my car so the third camera wasn't important to me. I've never had a problem with my Sandisk micro sd cards in my Aukey dashcam in the Florida heat so I figured just using the sd slot was more than enough. My phone has unlimited hot spot so I passed on the cellular option too.

Downside to 2 separate units will be finding space for battery backups if the parasitic draw is too much. Supposedly under 50mah.

Me either. It's more for a glance out the sides, though I figured I could also cheat and pull footage on road trips where I don't have a cam set up inside.

Did you actually get the early bird pricing? I thought my preregistration bought me the early bird price but couldn't figure out how to get it after the timer ran out.

You can message them - they've been honoring it retroactively it seems. I got an email implying Early Bird was open for only a few hours and I should be logged in at 9am to get it.
