I will be using 128GB Netac Pro micro SD for the recordings. I’ll also be using the Thinkware external GPS receiver with the X700 for the Road Safety Warning System & Smart Camera Alert functions.
Initial firmware out of the box
The videos below are recorded in 1920×1080 30fps with an overall bit rate of 11.2 Mb/s for the front camera and the rear camera.
This X700 is the successor to the X550. Updated with Ambarella A12 & Sony Starvis sensor for the front cam from the Ambarella A7 & Sony Exmor sensor in the X550.
Not sure why they didn’t include the built-in GPS like in the X550. Adding the external GPS receiver will have to consider an extra cable to the X700 now. Also the dip switch as the power button.
Overall a great mid-range premium dashcam. Video quality is on par with the F800 Pro.
Side note – My X700 was missing the Thinkware 16GB micro SD card. Sicurez said they’ll send it over as it was included in the package.
