The f210 3MP Color Dash Camera from HP features a 1/3" CMOS sensor and a 2.4" TFT LCD display to record and playback in up to 1920 x 1080 resolution at 30fps. A built-in GPS receiver unit not only logs the vehicle position and speed for later retrieval and route mapping, you can also program a maximum speed limit and have the unit notify you when you exceed it, and plot up to 200 speed traps and cameras and have it notify you when you are approaching them. Additionally this dash cam has an integrated microphone to capture the interior audio, which can be turned off to protect passenger privacy or to save memory space. When the camera isn't recording, you can take still images with it.

Multiple recording modes allow you to capture what you need when you need it. From automatic recording to emergency mode, you can tailor your recording to find the balance of video capture and memory usage. Recorded footage is saved to a MicroSD memory card, up to 32GB. The included Supercar software lets you playback files that can be synched to Google Maps for precise route mapping with readouts for speed, g-force, and compass bearings.

Installation and removal is easy with the suction-cup mount, which is critical if you need to move the camera from one vehicle to another. Powered by the vehicle's 12VDC plug, the camera is equipped with a rechargeable battery for use when the ignition is turned off, or for using it hand-held outside the vehicle, such as to document damage in the event of an accident.

    This camera was easy to mount and is fairly difficult to detect when looking into the vehicle. The picture is sharp and clear. Overall we are very pleased with this purchase and the price paid.

    Set-up was easy and customizable. Overall the camera is user friendly. Very small. Seems well made. Suction cup is quite strong, securely attaches camera to windshield. The cord is very long—I wrapped it up and put it into the roof storage area, next to the power outlet, so it is hidden from view—having an upper power unit on the vehicle is very handy.

    Camera shuts off when turn off vehicle so no power drain on battery—can set it to remain on if want to.

    HP user guide could be better written, but we've figured everything out so far.

    May not use some of the features, but for the price can't go wrong. Not sure I'd pay the higher price currently being advertised.

    Works with Macs seamlessly!!

    Having recently tried the Garmin Dash Cam 20 with its horribly choppy video, the HP f210 - while still a bit jittery - is so much better and worth the price (about a $ bucks less than the Garmin).With so many distracted drivers on the road these days, I use a dash cam full time for even the shortest trips, and whereas I was using a JVC Adixxion before I now don't have to worry about charging the battery or cleaning off the memory card. I was able to run the extra-long power cable under the dash, up the column and across the windshield, and I stow the camera in the console when not in use lest it get stolen.One problem I found was with the mount and the camera housing itself. It took a bit of electrical tape to tighten up what was otherwise a wobbly mount, and a loose seam along the top of the housing required some super glue. Too bad they didn't use a standard tripod mount.The camera has a hard time remembering the date and time, so I ended up turning off the date/time stamp. The power light sometimes blinks and sometimes stays on but doesn't seem to affect recording. And sometimes a strange display pops onto the screen which HP has been mum about.No, it's not perfect, but for what it cost, the quality of the video and the fact that it's pretty much automatic I feel that it's worth considering.

    Hp f210 auto dash cam

    By Peter

    from Chicago

    Comments about HP f210 3MP Color Dash Camera:

    Very happy with this dash camera. I originally ordered one from B&H, on Black Friday I ordered 5 more for myself and gifts.
    It does a very good job for the price point. Occasionally, when I turn off the car, it does not power off, and the next morning when I drive my car, the f210 battery went dead and lost its settings. It might be a settings issue, their is an option to video if motion is detected. I've not full determined if that is the case. Annoying, but I drive about 40k miles a year and this has only happened 3-4 times in about 9 months. This is about the only flaw I have found.
    The video is very good in the day and (surprisingly) good at night. I was pleased with the quality of the video. It has an emergency folder, if the G-sensor detects an accident, it move the video to a safe folder and will not overwrite it.
    A very nice dash cam for some piece of mind when driving with idiots on the road.

        Comments about HP f210 3MP Color Dash Camera:

        My car has been vandalized and hit in the parking lot at work. Drivers in the area are also careless. I use this camera for security purposes and documentation. I have had two of these cameras for about a month.

        Pros:

        Image quality is excellent. Details, such as license plate numbers and people's faces, are clear from a distance.

        Customizable resolution, recording duration, and activation.

        32GB capacity provides enough space for 8 hours+ of recording at 720P.

        I bought a Instant Boost (Mobile Power) power supply to keep it running throughout the day, and it doesn't drain the power source battery.

        Cons:

        Motion detection causes the camera software to crash after about 2 hours every time. I purchased two of these cameras, and they both do the same thing.

        Occationally, the image is scrambled when the system is turned on.

        A reset is required to temporarily resolve the issues above.

        HP customer support is poor. The customer service number provided with the item is invalid. There is no online support for this item, and the HP customer service hotline refers you back to the web site for support.

        I could not find a firmware update from HP.

        Battery life in the item is poor. As long as you buy an external power supply, you can remedy this issue.

        Time/Date will change and are never accurate (even after resets).

        For the price, it records excellent quality video. So far, it's served my purpose. I am concerned about the firmware. I fear this product may stop working in the not to distant future. If the issues are software related, I am currently unable to locate a solution.

                I recently was stop by the cops as I made a left turn on the green lights and was accused of going through the red lights. I was not given a ticket as my passenger said we had the green lights. This prompted me to buy this product which go's with me every where. The results I am getting so far is very positive. The pictures both night and day vision is very clear. I would buy this product again.

                    It beeps and displays a large white dot occasionally but I have no idea what it is...and the DVD doesn't mention it. A dvd has plenty of memory to explain things in detail but it isn't much better than the little multi-lingual booklet. There is no mention of how to download or review video that is in the camera.

                        Great compact camera with excellent video recording. The video quality is great during day and night. During the day, you can see the details very well. The wide dynamic range helps a lot but you need to activate it first. The lens has a very wide angle. I bought it for my father and get to test it first. I would buy one for myself. Albeit, a bit expensive.
