Good: it’s very small much small than I expected.
Good: Really good LCD screen that’s easy to see even in the daylight.
Good Excellent exposure, the camera handle even the most challenging lighting conditions and seems to alway smoothly handle dark and bright scenes.
Good: Lots of features like the stop go indicator, auto save on crash feature, the emergency save feature, and automatic recording feature.
Good: Really wide angle lens so you can record everything in front of you 160 degree field of view.
Good: Selection of different resolutions and frame rates.
Good: Runs on both AC and battery
Bad: battery life is atrocious. If you forget the charging cable expect that you will only get maybe 30 minutes of record time when starting with a fully charged battery.
Bad: I can’t seem to figure out how to get the PAPAGO 535 watermark off of the video. It was easy enough to turn off the time overlay but I can’t figure out how to get rid of the branding watermark.
Bad: No iPhone app, they have an Android app that allows you to transfer footage from the device to your phone but no iOS version of that app. However if you have a SD card reader for iPhones you can just pop the memory card in there and transfer the footage that way.
Summary: This is a really cool dash cam with surprisingly good image quality and remarkably easy setup. The features like the stop sign warning and the stop and go feature both work exceptionally well. You can literally put a memory card in the camera attach it to the windshield or dashboard and when you plug it in it starts recording without you having to do anything more. If you are looking for a dashcam and don’t mind not having GPS Papago Gosafe 535 is a worth your consideration.
