    Hi sdrawkcab, welcome! I, myself, am a very long time RD user (since '70's). I live & drive extensively in Texas. And I love Napoleon Dynamite!

    I actually hated the movie the 1st time I saw it, because I wasn't expecting the style at all. I had to rewatch it to really enjoy it. But second time around, I was hooked.

    Welcome, how do you like the Blackview? I still have mine in a box. Need some motivation to install it.

    Go to the "Idiot Drivers" thread. There should be enough motivation on the last page alone

    I'm pretty happy with it in general, though the app and live internet connected features are limited... However it seems they're some of the best available, so it's hard to criticize it when there isn't anything to compare them against yet. That said, I've already sent BlackVue multiple feature suggestions and requests for firmware, mobile application, and online service improvements. Looking at the historic public suggestions, it seems they're actually implementing some of the user requests. We'll see how they respond to mine. I mostly went for the BlackVue brand as they as a company seem like they are very dedicated to being around a while and making a name for themselves. I know anyone can get a cheap Chinese made one but then comes the lack of support, accountability, bug fixes, etc. I'm not saying it's the best in terms of features or reliability, but I feel like by buying it, I can expect good support for firmware updates from them. The image quality is very good. I'm sure it's all a matter of user preference. My main reason for getting this one was the cloud connectivity options. Realtime notifications for the impact sensor, ability to upload content from my camera to the internet or my phone without having to go out to my car, etc. I took a few days to get the settings down to what I wanted... but really what would make me go from 3 stars to 5 stars is their implementing of some of my feature requests. Maybe not fair of me to judge for something they don't yet have, but we can dream.

    The R3 is a very nice choice.
