The Extreme ADAS has on-screen warnings whether the screen is on or off. I’ve been trying to record the Extreme ADAS in action but it’s a bit hard at the moment.

My thoughts
It’s been a while since I used a dashcam with a screen & sure bring back memories of screen dashcams I used to own.

This QX800 is really huge & it reminded me of my old SonyEricsson mobile phone.

The rear camera video was recorded in mirror mode as I thought I was able to test the Blind Spot Detection feature but couldn’t as didn’t have the DriveX & BSD module to fully test out all features.

Note – You can change the view for the rear camera.

I really like the cool looking circular security LED on this QX800. But this QX800 really attracts attention with its huge size and fancy security LED.

Is this QX800 for everyone? I think this QX800 would look good in a big car like SUV and MPV. Not for those looking for discreet dashcams.

Wish that the GPS receiver was built-in instead of an external receiver. Less 1 cable to hide.
