Can I check with you all who own iRoad or particularly the V9,

Mine will auto shutdown and reboot every few days while I'm driving or idling, ie, when the engine is on.

Is that normal? I was thinking my 64gb sdcard is full that's why it does this. But my fren's unit is never like this.

Is mine faulty or normal. If faulty, what can I do about it? Bring back to distributor or go back to the shop where I bought it from?

I bought from Hai Wee at Bt Batok
I have a V9S2 and it doesn’t shut down unless my battery falls below my stipulated battery level. And that happens only when the car is parked longer than a day.

If cam shutdown or reboot when engine still on, could be the power cable. Can first check the wire termination where the camera cable draws power from.

There is a setting to configure the time to reboot the camera daily. Try checking that.

Hi,

I am using iTronics ITB-100HD (Rear) and ITB-100SPW (Front) for my car, both camera are still in good working condition except the ITB-100SPW WiFi hardware is spoilt as cannot detect the WiFi signal from the camera.

I know both camera power consumption are high compared to the newer 2 Channels Camera so it might drain the car battery a lot if both camera running 24/7 especially when parked overnight at open carpark versus Multi-Storey carpark.

Anyone has recommendation whether it is worth to change or just leave it?

How is the Blackvue remote monitoring via WiFi performance and power consumption?

Looking to use over a month like mobile CCTV to catch a mischief.

Like set motion detect with alert after parking in a more quiet corner.

Just comparing on iRoad V9S2 versus Q9, camera specs about same on Full HD, MicroSD Card size support is Max 64GB (V9S2) and 128GB (Q9) and design more sleek on Q9 compared to V9S2.

Anyone has other experience to share between these two cameras?

Depends where you park. For parallel parking or lot without barrier back to back, rear camera will be useful.

How often will u park in such lot?
If really kena then sway lo
Else go invest in a proper dual channel cam
Most ppl stay hdb thus its only reverse park or head in

I suggest this way is for 2x single channel cam like itronics only
Running 2x itronics consume power like no tmr
If ur car battery can last 1 full day with 1x cam
By using 2x cam, half day gone alr, front cam cant even record
So u rather to record front cam full day or 2x half day when u hardly need rear cam parking mode?

Some shopping center is like that. Or places like geylang usually parallel parking. Unless that driver don't drive anywhere else other than those HDB parking.

Well, this kind of thing is like insurance. Save some $$$ to avoid dual channel or cam but kana 1 time only, all vomit back.

Saw one Audi S5 yesterday installed those rear view mirror with camera in front of the mirror, just cannot imagine you can spend so much money to buy an expensive vehicle but cannot afford to spend a little more on a good camera.

Saw some feedback on iroad V9/Q9 got camera blur issues and most parts are made in China.

Any comments on the above issues? Saw the specs on Marbella KR6 and seems to be better than most dashcam in the market with a separate recorder and MicroUSB slot away from the camera so it will not have MicroUSB card issues due to prolong exposed to sun heat.

How many of you guys are on backup battery such as T-Power or Cellink?

Understood coz they're using more reliable LifePO4 type battery which can take heat in car.

But price of battery is like $300 Or $400.......which changing car battery yearly sounds cheaper.

I just installed the Power Pack from iroad, 6800mah in my car but with my 2 itronics camera, it can last about 9 hours max so thinking to change to the new camera with 2 channel as both already used about 5 years and having issues with it.

I am leaning towards Thinkware F800 Pro now, any current F800 Pro users here? I like to hear your comments and feedback, what is the price and where to install will be cheaper?
