    Easy to setup and maintain, pic ture/video quality is great and videos are easily to download.

    Does what it needs to for managing and downloading videos from the Roav Dashcams (A1). Interface makes sense and is easy to use, with two notes: 1) Requires location permissions. They say they need it to connect to the dashcam. Not sure if that's right or not but I'm not too worried about it. 2) Requires the creation of a VPN to download videos. Fishy to say the least. If you let it create the VPN and then delete it from your settings, everything still works. Do this. Untrusted VPNs are bad.

    I've only been using it for a day so far, but it seems to run really well aside from show download speeds from the camera to the phone and if you watch a video directly from the camera without downloading, it buffers every few seconds. I'm recording at 1080 though, so I don't expect a great connection speed from the camera. The only complaint I have with the app is that it doesn't have a way to stream live video from the camera to the phone.

    I try to connect to the camera and it gives vague instructions about setting up "tethering" on the camera. it makes no sense. I think they just mean enable Wi-Fi. eventually I got everything going and even installed a version update. the image is good albeit oversharpened. it's hard to read license plates unless you are really close. still for the price it seems okay.

    App is good to have as a companion to my Roav Dash Cam A1 but each time I update from version 3.0 to 3.2 the update appears to work but when I connect to my cam via wifi the version reverts back to 3.0. Current version states 3.2 but I'm sure it will revert to 3.0 once again after I connect to the cam via wifi as it has already done several times now. It also took some time upgrading from version 2.4 to 3.0. Trying to remember what I did to stop reverting from version 3.0 to 2.4. Any solutions?

    It is a good cheap dashcam with wi-fi function, and collision detection. video quality is clear. Only thing that disappoints me is their interface. They hv limited sharing options like fb and utube only. no options to share on watsapp, skype Or Instagram which reduces the ease of transferring from phone. Also, once u upload from phone to any other site, the original sound in recording vanishes. I would rate 3.5. It is avg cam at this price point. It costs $60 but i got in sale so cost was $45.

    As soon as I connect via WiFi it drops 10 seconds later. Then I have to connect a 2nd time for a continuous connection. If not for that it would have been a 5 star. Problem has persisted since I purchased 8 months ago. I can't be the only one with this issue, unless it's LG V30 related. After a firmware update my issue of dozens of 2-3 second parking mode recordings finally ceased.

    So very disappointed with my recorder and not any happier with this app, either. I haven't had this camera for 2months until it started shutting off for about 3 to 4 seconds & coming back on, it does this ALL the time! I have no idea why? I have checked all of the connections & my husband even checked too. But I almost got t-boned yesterday and my camera wasn't even recording AND it was on! So apparently for the first 5 or 7mins of driving my vehicle, this machine isn't even recording! Lame!

    Trash app. Never able to connect to the cam. If by some miracle you can connect, it drops the connection before you are ever able to download a video.

    Great quality video, but only records on a loop of 1 min up to 10 mins Max... No continuous record for road trip of jeep trail ride! Doesn't have a way to even turn the loop recording off. Would not have bought if I knew that in advance!

    I've had this awhile now, and had to come back and make it 2☆'s; when I connect to the cam, all the vids say they're full. When I click on them— Pzzzt! Nothing! I think I'll just go with a more expensive cam- not that I want to spend $$, but because I want the damn thing to work! What's happening to your Quality Control, Anker??? And what's the deal with no updates in a year and a half? Tsk, tsk.. Time to say bye!!

    I've had this camera for 4 months and all the sudden it's telling me to update my social media apps in order for it to be shared. Everything is updated I uninstalled roav and reinstalled it and still it's telling me the same what's up with that!? Roav needs to update. Do I have to buy a new camera? I love the camera won't let me share anything I had no issues till today. I see a lot of reviews saying the same about the app.

    i wanted to like it. BUT support is trash.(-1)based ONLY on the price point of $40.Unit comes w 8gb card. get a 32gb SanDisk card asap. it works well, decent enough video and audio. the internal batt is useless(-3) if 12v off w car, park/tamper record will be dead too(-4)it trashes SD cards in a few weeks, formatting every day helps, but it still totally corrupts the cards. return card/get new.(-5) Tech support ignored me 2 this day. no reply. ive sent 16 emails and Twitter/IG/FB ?'s unanswered

    Had the camera for approximately two months. Nothing but problems. First it wouldn't connect to my phone for video playback. Now it turns on and turns off within two seconds. I've tried turning it off but it won't stay on long enough to do that. Currently it also shows no memory card.

    EVERYONE HAVING ISSUES READ THIS REVIEW. connect to wifi with phone from camera, then select "manage router" that will bring up a page where you can see your videos and download without a app. good luck.

    I downloaded this app as a means of getting videos off of my dashcam and onto my phone quickly in case of an accident, but this app has proven to be anything but quick. It takes a long time (several minutes) to download video to the app from the camera and even longer (ten minutes and counting) to compress video if you want to upload it to Youtube. The app also uses really strange language, which leads me to believe it was developed by people who didn't speak English as a first language. That's fine, but it's hard to understand what I need to do to connect Wifi and do different things within the app. This is fairly disappointing coming from Anker, as I normally like their products. If you have the ability, I would recommend just taking out the SD card and downloading video directly to your computer, as it's probably faster than using the app.

    Needs an update. Very slow and requires me to force quit the app after Every use. Love the dash cam itself, but the app needs some improvement.
