The Conbrov DC80 Dashcam is a compact Wi-fi and GPS Dashcam.

Dash cams become more and more popular around the world, but there are legal questions. Before you get a dash cam you need to check your local state laws about the legal limitations about operating a dashcam in your car.

The Conbrov DC80 dash cam is packed with features but is still very easy to use. The small dashcam records HD Video and the location with the built-in GPS. Via Wi-fi you can directly access the camera via a free app. Other features include motion detection, parking monitoring, night vision, 1.5-inch color screen, built-in battery, USB port and SD card slot.

The Conbrov DC80 Car Dash Cam comes bundled with a car charger, USB cable, car bracket, card reader, pin, user manual and CD. You get everything you need besides a microSD card to get started with dash cam recording in your car. Conbrov's DC80 is compatible with Class 10 micro SD cards up to 64GB. In my review of the Conbrov DC80, I used a 16GB card.

This dashcam features a loop recording mode. Loop recording enables the newest video to overwrite the oldest video in sequence with 1, 3, or 5-minute configurable intervals. This way you never run out of storage, and you still have the latest videos available in case you need them.

The camera is compact enough to place it behind the rear view mirror. This is important in some states as they do not allow windshield obstructions. This way the camera does not obstruct the view if there wouldn't be the power cable. This is a general problem with dash cams. Conbrov's suggested solution is to install the cable around your windshield starting on the top and down to the cigar lighter plug. The bundled cable is long enough for that.

You need to keep the dash cam plugged into power at all times as the 170mAh battery only is good for 10 to 15 minutes. The advantage is that the camera automatically starts recording when you start the car. With the motion control enabled, the camera also records when the car stands still. I could not find out what the difference between the motion control option is to the parking monitoring.

A safety feature is the built-in G-Sensor. In case of a crash, the camera starts recording, in case you have not set it to automatic recording. To use the GPS data, you need to use the bundled software. In case you don't have an optical drive, you can download the Windows app from here. I could not test the software as we only have Apple Macs and the software only works in Windows.

The audio recording works very well too. The audio recording can be disabled in the settings of the camera, which might be a legal requirement.

In my Conbrov DC80 test, the dash cam convinced with its ease of use, compactness and great quality video. You can watch a sample video of some street scenes below. At $89.99 the Conbrov DC80 dash cam is a great solution that makes dash cam recording a "set and forget task." The Conbrov DC80 is available on amazon.com. With the coupon code lla20off you get 20% off the Conbrov DC80's regular price of $89.99.

I still have the Conbrov DC80 in the office. If you have any questions, please post it in the comments below and I will try to find you the answer.
