It’s won’t be connected to my iPhone xe not reach the expected as description so disappointment
I cannot connect to the WiFi hotspot to be able to see my videos on my iPhone 11 plus, the apps says I’m in KPH when the camera says I’m in MPH, I can’t add my phone number to my profile because no matter how I type it, it says it’s the wrong format! I’m just getting started with setup and already this is looking like a return waiting to happen!! 😡
When trying to pull footage the app will close out. Please fix this issue. If it’s fixed the rating will change. I dropped 200+ for this camera.
I recently picked up an SC201 dash cam. Connected it to the app no problem. Those having issues updating firmware, what worked for me was to take the device in the house, connect it to power with another USB cable I had that I have a wireless charger connected to - closed/re-opened the app & the firmware worked fine finally. Did not work in the vehicle or connected to computer. The pdf manual says you can download the firmware, but there were no download links under the firmware section on the website. It’s be nice if somewhere, there was mention of having to connect to the dash cams wireless network to perform functions like settings, pic/video download, etc. figured it out - but no mention anywhere. Also, in the app, it says my device is set to KM/h for Speed Units. If I change it to MPH, it actually sets the device to KM/h, so that’s a bug. Would be great to email support directly too, but only way to contact them is via phone during select hours. I will need to call to ask for the ability to completely turn off my dash cam display. The screensaver option allows the camera image to turn off, but I don’t need to still see the time/date and speed while driving my car at night. The small blinking red LED and small blue LED for recording & Bluetooth are fine - but not the bright red dot and white metered date/time/speed. I may have to make a cover to get these lights out of my eyes at night.
Tells me it can’t connect to camera every time I try to update the firmware. Also can’t connect to gallery or use other parts of app even though my phone is connected with Bluetooth to the dash cam. It’s complicated and hard to use.
The app will not connect to my camera. Occasionally it will connect briefly but eill suddenly disconnect
The register page is not scrollable on my iPhone 7, I cannot submit the registration!!! Bad user experience!!!
I been following the Cobra Electronics and ESCORT Radar independent Connected Car Driving Network’s for over 10 years. This is the culmination of their collective efforts to save people time and money while helping you drive safer and smarter. Absolutely no other driving Network that can give you a chance to avoid instant on and Laser speed enforcement tickets from providing alerts from the cars and professional drivers on the road in front of you. Always better to drive connected instead of alone all by yourself or with static non connected devices
