If you have an 8 gig card you get about an hours recording.
You can set the record to chunk of time and this is saved to the card. After your journey you will have say 15 blocks of video on your card.
I set mine to five minutes of record. It is really easy to do and it automatically records when you start the car.

The menu has a loop recording "off" button.
I assume this allows continuous recording. Though I haven't tried it.
Groups of recorded files can be viewed as one seemless video.
If the cigarette lighter has constant power even with ignition off, the unit will continue to record until you either pull the plug (as I do), or switch off the unit itself.

It auto loops so you don't need to press any buttons, then if you are in an accident it will secure the files as it has a sensor that measures the force

It records in blocks. The default is set at 3min blocks but you can change that. when the SD card is full of 3 minute files, it starts overwriting.

It records continuously either until your card is full or (if you specify in the options) it will overwrite older footage. It records small files either 2, 3 or 5 mins each one.

Recording is infinite, as it fills the card with files and once full overwrites previously recorded files. Any that you have copy protected will not get overwritten. You have to manually delete these files. I call them incident files.

I have the Nextbase InCarCam 202 Lite and using a 8GB card it records about an hour or so of footage on max settings.

So I'd imagine roughly just shy of 4x that.

At least a couple of hours then it re writes over the earliest files. To me it's not a problem as most of the time it records lots of nothing ie normal driving.

No. The Satellite is used to track your journey for viewing on a pc or laptop, tracking your vehicle on Google maps as you view the recorded video.

I can only say don't buy Nextbase inCar camera, it's a waste of money and very annoying piece of equipment you need to pay a lot of money for. Mio MiVue 388 it's a lot better and has life speed camera update, if it save you 3 points and 60 pounds once, you already have a difference back.

I don't know the answer to this, but mine turns off and the next day switches back on. It sleeps, stores all the setting data and is supposed to wake up with an incident.

Question
The camera interferes with DAB radio any advice
Purchased a new sony dab radio from Halford and the camera breaks up the DAB transmission.

Have tried the camera on opposite side of windscreen to DAB aerial and also on the dashboard but unable to use both items at the same time.

Any thoughts on this one please?

Turning off the Satellite connection may help. May defeat the object of having this particular dash cam. Or if your able, use fm instead of dab.
