Rexing V1-4K running this one right now.

I like the wifi transfer capability so I don't forget to bring my sd card back down lmao takes a minute though. Vid quality is good but I don't bother using the 4K setting since it takes up so much freaking space and takes a long time to transfer out using wifi.

The BlackVue DR590X would be the modern day replacement for your camera. Has all the features the DR400G has and a bit more. Or they also have the DR900X which shoots in 4K UHD.

You could also look at Thinkware branded ones, they're pretty good as well. FA200, Q800 PRO, and U1000 are the most popular models.

How many times have you had to replace the internal battery on the dr400g? I gave up after 1 or 2 changes and just bought a 2ch instead.

Do you think it'd be worth it going all the way up to the U1000? It's on sale right now at Best Buy for $575 and is cheaper than blackboxmycar

No worries can't believe it's been that long since that group buy haha

How are you liking the DR750S? I'm pretty torn at which one to buy lol back then it was pretty easy since it was really only the DR400G available at the time / was easier to get lol.

I have not replaced it at all... maybe that's why it's not working as intended. I've been checking the footage every now and then and even for a drive I just did I wouldn't see the footage at all when before I would.

i cant recommend the 750s given my experience of boot loop even with the stock memory card/latest firmware

i prefer lukas..people seem to have good things to say about thinkware

My Blackvue DR600 got that boot loop issue after 4 years, which is annoying. Got a 750LTE to replace it since I just wanted to plug and play instead of rewiring it all for a new camera input but the rear camera occasionally has sensor issues. If my car wasn't already wired for a Blackvue, I would not get a blackvue again. They've been around for a while now but their reliability is still meh... and they're the priciest still.

gonna give this a try

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

usability might be questionable but can't beat 4th gen sony starvis 4k for $160

xiaomi 70mai also uses the same sensor in their latest a800, but i can't find any canadian retailers for it rn..probably because it undercuts everybody by $300

I have no complaints. I don't have any issues with it in the last 3 years and I'm still using the original memory card too.

for the rear camera, do you just power it by the backup lights circuit and run a wire through your trunk and roof of your car to the front camera?

It's only one wire for power and video so you have to connect it to front camera
