Is the Power Magic Pro an option this time around?
I have old version without wifi and rear camera, but its amazing! and if there will be more commits, i defenetly buy it! picture is amazing!
Got the DR500G-HD November of last year. I'm in Australia, it been on the windscreen most of that time. I was removing it at the start due to heat concerns, not as must now but still do sometimes (it can get hot here.). Picture is very clear, sound i turn off (easy to do) when i rant. Speed and date time accurate. The 500 is a great dash cam, I'm going to join as the rear cam would be good as well.
So comp sites are far cheaper... by almost 10%...
I won't post links to competitor sites but this is hardly a deal...

some differences between DR500GW-HD and DR550-GW-2CH
Model***Temps var***Power consumed***Cmos size***Make***Vertical***Diag.***Horiz.
500............-20c to 70c....3.3w max.....................2.0...................Unkn.......90...............156........123
550............-20c to 60c....4.8w max......................2.4...................Sony........85...............146........115
As you can see on the 550 it is not only a Sony sensor but increased from 2.0mp to 2.4 mp, an improvement of 20%
All of the angles for the lens were reduced with the 550 which should give a sharper closer image rather the wider image of the 500
Maximum power consumption is up on the 550 from 3.3w to 4.8 watts. Realistically in continuous park mode the 4.8 watts or .36 (4.8w/13.2v) of an amp draw (based on 13.2 volt battery) would completely drain a battery in 222 hours. Battery manufacturers recommend that battery should never go below 50%, thus the 550 in parking mode would be limited to 111 hours maximum (based on 80 amp hour battery fully charged, and in good condition)
The only down side, is that maximum operating temperatures was reduced from -20c to 70c on the 500, and changed to -20c to 60c on the 550 model.
60c converts to 140f, and this is an operating temperature, not a storage temperature.
The only problem I see is that people in the North East might want to disable the parking mode from coming on in the summer time, where parked vehicles will reach the max. temperature of 60c.
If the 2.01 firmware upgrade for the 550 model is any reference as to how they drastically improved the quality of the 500, since this model was first released, then I am really looking forward to this new 550 model running the new firmware

this is same install kit as 500 with additional wire for rear camera
Yes, it is Plug and Play
e350
What is the final price for this group buy? Is it including the rear camera? Thanks.
Would this handle middle east summertime?? The operating temps say 60 degrees C max. I'm pretty sure temps here (interior) go higher.

wow I had to figure that one out 60c is 140f. I have not read anything on 550 having heat problems like the 400. I did take the 500 to vegas in the summer at 129f and had no problems.
I do not understand the plug and play questions.
The unit like the 500, does plug into a cigarette adapter, which is convenient if your ignition switches this source on and off.
Now if you wish to use the park feature which monitors the outside while the vehicle is park you must use a non switched outlet, or an always powered outlet.
Now the problem with doing this is that you can drain your battery dry while in the parking mode.
Now the optional $30 unit will attach to your battery, and switched ignition, and a third wire being ground.
By adding this option your unit will operate as normal with ignition, and will now also record when car is parked with ignition off, and will stop recording if battery drops below selectable option of battery voltage, which is usually 12 volts.
Please feel free to correct me if wrong, however I have been informed that the power cord and Mount are the same for the front camera in the 500 or 550 series, I however might be wrong or so my wife always tells me.
Let's drop this again!
