We bought t two of these bundles. Cameras are 5 star. The kit comes with everything you need. Install and hiding the wires is not difficult, just takes a little time. Plenty of cord length on the rear cam and the cigarette lighter connection. Hardwire cable is shorter and more of an install challenge. Getting the app to work is a real pain. Not sure why it has to be so freaking complicated to get it hooked up and running properly. The cameras don’t automatically reconnect to the cloud. Every time I start the car I have to go through the cumbersome reconnect, and usually have to start over several times ‘cause it doesn’t work. I’ve given up on the cloud. The app is the weak link. If the app was decent…it would definitely be a 5 star setup.

Rear camera is great. Front camera is ok. Not sure if it’s my suv windshield is curved that is distorting the video edges or if the camera lens is causing it. Records continuous without WiFi or hotspot. When I connect to WiFi it doesn’t stay on for very long and I get kicked off frequently. Would like better explanation about parking mode and event mode. Also, what to do with all the video files. Best way to merge them or archive them. Great if software came with the cost to help manage and edit the video files. Going on a 3 day road trip next week and will see how it does

Image quality doesn’t seem much better than the F770 it replaced.
