What's up, guys? I'm Andy from 1A Auto. Today we're going to be unboxing this HD car dash cam from 1aauto.com. All right, so there's some tape here. I'll just take a knife and open. Pull this camera out. And this is the actual camera. Kind of looks like a radar detector. Flip this screen down. Oh, that's kind of nice. It's got all the buttons right there. Got a camera on the front.

Here's the mount for the windshield. Pull this out. Little suction cup on there and it screws into the camera itself, on the top right here. Screw that in. That's kind of nice.

All right, so we have our charging cable. We have another cable to plug into the PC, and we have a battery. To install the battery, we're just going to grab this right here and slide this back. Take the battery and slide it in just like that. Get this cover, slide it back on.

There's a memory card right here, just grab this and open this up. The memory card's in there. Close that up, spin this around, and this is the plug to put it into the PC or to charge it right there.

Now let's go to the car and check out some of the features. All right, we'll take this charging cable and we'll just plug this in. Just like that. All right, now we're going to just mount this to the windshield. Push the suction cup on, and then just push the lock down, just like that. Open up the screen and just slide it down. Just like that.

All right, so there's a power button up here and there's a select button right there. Menu, down, open, and mode. So I'm going to select the menu. We're going to change. We want to change the date and the time. Select menu again and then scroll down. And date and time input, so select that. And then we can change this and go back in time, you know, go back into the future. And select next. We're in January, so next. I'm going to go to January 23rd. Next. Change the time. And then go to 2:00 and select that. Now the date and the time should be all set. So we're at 2019, January 23rd, at 2:00.

So if we started the car at this point. This would get power. I'm going to turn this off. It should turn this off. Oh, that was a nice little picture. All right? So when we start the car now, turn the car on, the nice little song and a nice little picture of a cool car. It should start recording right now. And Sue's going to walk right in front of the camera. There she goes to the other room. And it works pretty good.
