Go Pros don't natively allow an external power supply as they run from battery,they write to a single file as opposed to chapter files style storage,no gps and are more expensive

^ FUD mostly.

 

GoPro has a miniUSB plug, so virtually any charger for a smartphone with the appropriate connector can be "natively" used with it.

 

It doesn't write to a single file and "expensive" is a relative term. This is how much the quality costs these days and anything below this price point can be called a cheap knock-off, especially if it's some noname brand which has flooded this niche market.

 

Cheapest is the dearest.

There you have it (I've googled it since your link is broken).

 

Mobius is extremely oversaturated  :x

 

Besides, youtube downsamples videos. It's a worthless platform for video quality comparison.

As for AIO in day time... I'd say is on a par

as for night footage- most important failure/aspect of any/most as DashCam's see this:

so i went and brought a transcend dp200 camera

its great!

great during the day, and good at night. easy to see number plates.

direct from amazon, so no fakes.

 

works straight out of the box, a bit big, but thats fine.

and it shuts off and turns on when you need it .

 

no gps, but otherwise fine.
