my dash cam has just arrived via Hermes as promised.
Thank You John for the great offer and service you provided.
The cam looks great , I'm just waiting for Amazon to deliver the SD card to complete the setup.

Truly appreciated

Got my cam, put in a new SD card 32gb. when turned on got request to format card, confirm yes and OK, formatting start and then 1) getting CARD ERROR need to take card out to restart OR 2) formatting going on till cam turned off and all awarded again.
Thought cam not charged so did it again while plugged to cigarette lighter socket but still happened the same.
Help, what the problem can be.

32g card ? Sorry, will not work .. Maximum size is 16 gig.. It does say it in the instructions and we have had a few folk try them all with the same result..
Personally I would recommend an 8gig.. PLENTY big enough to be honest

quite possibly a faulty or fake card. I am using a genuine 32gb card with no problems
use this utility to check new cards to make sure you havent got one of the mass of fake ones about

Mine works with a 32gb card. Where did you get your card from, there are a lot of cheap ones about that are a waste of money. Get all my cards from My memory .com

Sorry Big1 you beat me to it.

Thank you all.

John - in the user manual there is nothing about the card size, on the boxes its say SDHC CLASS 6 1Gb - 32Gb.
Big1 - I will try the utility, thanks
Dave - got the card from Ebuy, you are probably right - Cheep but not cheerful.
