What SD CARD should I buy?

If you want an SD Card for your camera - these are the ones I use and recommend. 

I'd strongly recommend not to buy any SD cards off ebay - I've heard about too many issues with counterfeit cards - often sold on by unwitting resellers. My inbox regularly gets messages from people who bought a £150 camera then cheaped out and bought a £3 memory card on ebay - Then when it doesn't worth they blame the camera! It doesn't make any sense. Good memory is cheaper than it's ever been - see the links above.

A lot of HD cameras will not work properly with cards larger than 32GB (cards over 32GB are usually SDXC rather than the SDHC standard used by 32GB cards. SDXC cards use the ex-FAT system rather than FAT32 - in short they are a different standard). - so don't just buy the biggest card you can afford - read the specs in the manual to see what it accepts.


RECOMMENDED CARDS (for action cams - see dashcams below)

CLASS 10 UHS-1 CARDS (For HD Cameras)


U3 CARD (For 4K cameras)




The SD card in a dashcam is re-written over, more frequently than in other types of cameras. Some manufacturers void their guarantee if an SD card was used in a dashcam. So, no surprise, there are special High Endurance SD cards made just for's some.


VERY IMPORTANT. These links take you to the product, however Amazon have three different ways of selling. There's Amazon Direct - This means that you are only dealing with Amazon themselves, then there's other sellers that use Amazon's facilities - these show as Fulfilled By Amazon and finally there's Market Place sellers that advertise on Amazon, but operate independently.  I strongly recommend that you only use the first...the Amazon Direct - Sold By Amazon option. Even if it appears that you are paying a couple of £/$ more it is more than likely you are comparing the price of a real item against the price of a fake.

To give you an idea of the extent of the fake goods problem. In a 2016 survey by Apple - 90% of the 'Apple' chargers sold through Amazon - using the other the two methods..which includes the "Fulfilled by Amazon" option -  were found to be counterfeit....90%!

DOD LS430W GPS Dashcam Review

Here's my review of the DOD LS430W car camera. The camera was supplied by DOD-TECH UK

I mentioned in the video that this camera comes with both OSX & Windows GPS playback software. I didn't test out the Windows version but I believe that often Windows users opt to use a more fully featured, and free GPS playback software package called Registrator Viewer. I should mention that apparently the GPS implementation on the LS430W is a particularly accurate and fast one...I'll admit to knowing next to nothing about GPS, so I'll just take their word for that. 

You'll find my short downloadable sample clips here.

Buying links are below 

The price I mentioned in the video is the cheapest price I found on ebay...but some people who have bought from ebay sellers in China have received inferior clones, so you are probably better off getting one from an official dealer. My camera was supplied by DOD-TECH UK, who currently have the camera on sale at £149 including delivery. That comes with a 1 Year warranty and no chance of incurring any customs and importation charges for UK buyers.


This camera has been discontinued and replaced with the very similar LS460W - I've had a number of people contact me to tell me that they've bought the LS460W and found it to be a very good camera. I've therefore put links to the LS460W below.

Thanks for that Slivy58. I had another look at the Staples site, and their description of the LS 430W camera:
"•Included in the Box: 4M(13ft) Vehicle Power Charger, USB cable, suction cup bracket, HDMI Cable, User Manual."
No mention of a second bracket. I had a small problem with the suction cup bracket, so I got in touch directly with DOD in Scarborough, (Toronto) and they were kind enough to send me a new suction mount. Not sure how long the new one will last, perhaps it is just symptomatic of suction cups as my Garmin GPS falls off the windscreen at interval as well.....Maybe I can apply a certain type of glue that would be easy to remove from both the windshield and the suction cup. As you know it is "air-pressure" that holds the suction cup in place, so if the vacuum between the suction cup rubber and the windscreen is compromised, then it lets go. A tip I use to prevent the camera from falling onto the floor of my car is loop the power cable around the rear view mirror, so in the event the suction lets go, your camera does not fall and possibly get damaged it just dangles from the power cord.
Which mount are you using? The suction or the dash "stick-on"?

Thanks again for your input.....If there is anyone else out there....comments welcomed....

I questioned Staples content description after seeing Techmoan's video review and had to wait until it was in my possession to verify, was happy to see in my case, Staples description was wrong.

Been mounting various devices onto my vehicles windshield for years (5+) and in the majority of the cases some form of suction mount has been used, for the most part I've had good luck with them staying put. They've gone through the rigors of our harsh winters and the +30 temperatures of the summer months, longest period before my intervention to remove has been close to a year if not longer... I'm always adjusting and reconfiguring dependent on what is being mounted. As with anything though there are occasions when they decide to part ways and just as you have done SHUMBA, I too configure the USB cable in such a fashion to prevent the device from crashing to the floorboards.
My secret and what has worked for me when installing a suction type mount... A clean even glass surface, moisten (water) the cup with a damp cloth and mounting in an environment that is not too hot or cold.

As to what I use... In the past three months I've chosen to go with the smallest mount that utilizes just the ball/socket and has the 3M adhesive, reasons being is to alleviate vibrations/shake, windshield obstructions and better concealment of device. Still deploy the suction type when needed as they provide more versatility in that they can be removed and remounted within seconds, with the adhesive it is a more permanent method, tough to remove and requires a "new" adhesive pad to reinstall.
One thing I have noticed is that many of the mounts I own use similar sized balls and sockets so mixing and matching is a breeze, one mount multiple devices, just have to keep intent in mind when choosing a location.

Hope this makes some sense SHUMBA and helps you in some way, best of luck.

PS... I'd inquire about your missing mount as I do believe it should have been included, it is a nice addition and having that 2nd adapter for your camera is a bonus. Possible DOD made some changes but think it was an omission during packaging.

Forgot one step in my installation of a suction mount:

A clean even glass surface, moisten (water) the cup with a damp cloth and mounting in an environment that is not too hot or cold... AND... Firm pressure on mount against glass before activation of locking mechanism :-)

Many thanks for your detailed input Slivy58. I appreciate that. I contacted Staples via "chat-line" only to be told that they shipped the camera as described, i.e. only one mount as per their description of the camera. I am going to contact DOD directly and ask them (DOD) about the second mount that uses a 3-M adhesive. I have see these as other GPS and dash cameras come with two mounts.
Thanks again.........will let you know what DOD has to say.........

April 11, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSHUMBA

Yes I'd say the missing mount isn't Staples doing and contacting DOD is your best bet, hopefully they can clear up any confusion for us both as to why it was or was not included in our situations. Most of my earlier dash cam purchases came with a single suction mount and DOD is the second manufacture in my experience to include two, can never have enough I'd say LOL.

Hi Matt,

What a minefield, trying to work out what camera to buy! Thanks for your reviews, which have left me *slightly* less confused but...

I have two vehicles, my daily use car and a 4x4 off roader. I would like a camera for 'evidence' when driving in my normal car and also to take videos of lane runs in the 4x4. I also want GPS so I can map where we've been off road. I want high quality video for the lane run element and general quality for the normal run. I'm not too bothered about the GPS in my normal car, so would leave an external GPS receiver in the Land Rover if needed, but built in is better as I can use in either.

So far, the DOD LS430W would appear to tick all the boxes. And I use Macs, so Mac software on this one is an added bonus (wife has a PC if I really needed to use one, so not a deal breaker).

Obvious question is, can you think of anything that I'm missing or should also consider?

Second question is more generic. I've only started looking because of the off roading but it strikes me that people don't talk much about rear facing cameras to video tailgaters etc. Wouldn't it be better having two cameras? Is there a reason why rear facing doesn't get mentioned or have I simply not come across it? I'm wondering whether one camera like this and a really cheap one for the rear window would be useful? Be handy if someone bumps it while parked!

Hi, have purchased Sandisk 64g SDXC micro card, it seems to be already "Fat32" format, tried it from new and tried it again after formatting it with the DOD Fat32 format app and what happenens is it will record and store every file for the whole 64g (5 min loop), but at about the 15gig point on the card the files stop being recognised, have tried so many times formating, different settings, always the same result. After reading this forum, have realized that the Sandisk card is rubbish for this camera. So everybody, DO NOT BUY THIS CARD.
Can anybody tell me what 64 or 128 gig card will work with the DOD LS430W. Preferably someone that has actually used one.


April 23, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDerry


I was using the recommended (by DOD) Kingston 64GB MicroSDXC Class10, all was fine until I went on an extended trip. After several hours the cam began to lockup requiring manual resets, soon the lockups became more frequent so I decided to revert back to my 32GB Lexar card, the trip home went smooth without one iota of a problem. So in summary, I'm not sure how reliable anything above 32GB is when used with this cam and have not tested my 64GB card to see if there are any pending issues, as for a 128GB version, I doubt that is an option.

Hey Slivy58,
If you are still out there. DOD-tech was kind enough to send me a second mount for my LS430W. Great customer service from the DOD-tech folks in Toronto.
This mount is very small and attaches using a 3M stick on mount. As you mentioned earlier, you were using your stick on mount as it made the camera more obscure, or less noticeable. I have not used this mount and am wondering where to place it. The instruction manual says you can change or reverse the video, ie if the camera is mounted upside down, a camera setting will permit the video to replayed or displayed "right side up". So, will this sticky mount adhere to the windscreen above the rear view mirror? That area of the windscreen has a " dotted" area that acts as a sunvisor. My dash board is not smooth, as it has a slightly pebbled surface. Finally, have you had to remove or relocate your sticky mount?
Rumour has it, DOD is coming out with a newer dash cam, called the LS460W. By number it shoots 60 frames per second, or double that of our LS430's.
I would like to to see a better resolution with these cameras, as I have to be within about a car length to read a licence plate number. Oncoming traffic licence plates are illegible.
I would be grateful if you have any information to share with myself and the DVR community.

May 8, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSHUMBA


That’s awesome DOD-tech was so obliging, definitely good to know and thanks for sharing.

As for the mount location, my choice of placement is at the very top of the windshield just shy of the “dotted” area and to the right of the rear-view mirror mounting arm, that seems to work best for me, also prefer it situated as such that I can monitor the small status LED while driving without too much neck bending… Like knowing if the power source has been severed. The adhesive is basically a onetime use thingy so careful placement is a must, just leave the protective cover on and do a little trial fitting with the camera attached, once you are satisfied with the intended location remove the cover and stick away LOL… Have not removed any of mine but do know the 3M adhesive will require a bit of elbow grease to detach when the time comes and some form of thin bladed knifelike tool helps as well. With a dash mount itself I’d be inclined to have something with a larger base/adhesive pad as I’m not so sure the factory unit would suffice in this situation, that was my place of choice when using pocket cams as dash cams and I never had much luck getting anything to stick well to the dash itself not to mention the whole setup stuck out like a sore thumb.

I’ve seen the option to flip the video but in all honesty have not tried this feature nor have I had the need up to this point; hopefully the time/date/GPS stamp gets flipped as well and suppose giving it a go would alleviate any guessing. Just recently purchased a couple Joby Action Clamps and got to say they are awesome and allow the dash cam to be oriented properly if there is no option to flip the video, use mostly in a stationary application w/aux power supply and so far super stuff, perfect for those temp installs or when you want to relocate quickly. The ridged arm version is meant for mobile applications yet I’m not so sure it would keep the shake to a minimum due to its oval length, it incorporates a std. ¼” threaded mount which easily adapts to any tripod.

So SHUMBA what resolution do you have your cam set at, 720p, 1080p? I leave mine set to 1080p and must say I am very pleased with the daytime results, night-time recordings do lose a lot of detail unless you are close-up and are motionless but other than that I can’t complain. One thing to remember is that the wide angle lens does causes most objects to be further away and somewhat distorted on the outer edges hence diminishing the details, zooming in on the video via video editing software will only get you so far before the footage becomes unusable. Doubt one will find something in this price range either that will do a better job but then improvements are being made every day with various manufactures so who knows, one day they’ll have a 4K unit at a reasonable cost yet I can’t see that coming anytime soon.

Good to hear there may be a new model on the horizon but think my wife may beg to differ, got too many toys as it and a “new on my list” to purchase just makes her cringe LOL. Will keep an eye open for it either way and see whether or not it’s worthy of being added to my collection 

Do you know where buy suction cup originals or alternatives in ebay for the model DOD LS 430W?.

Kind Regards.

May 8, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterHugo

Could try ordering one through DOD themselves or...

If you're talking about the "T" type slot mount the only thing I've come across was this from

I purchased a couple of these prior to getting the DOD LS430W and one day while toying around I gave it a go with the DOD, low-and-behold it worked. The only problem with these is that they make the whole affair much bulkier but the bonus part is that the ball stud is adaptable to many of the suction mounts or at least the batch in my possession, It is not as tight a fit as the original yet has a reasonably firm grip, no locking mechanism either. Other than that I'm not aware of any others with this particular design, maybe someone else can broaden the spectrum for you/us.

Hi Slivy58;

Thank you for your prompt assistance and input regarding the stick-on mount for my LS430W camera. I will give it a try applying it to the upper portion of the windscreen ensuring the camera lens is not obstructed, and that I am able to aim the camera without interfering with the rear-view mirror. If all goes bad, I'm sure I can find a patch of this 3-M stick-on tape to give me a second try....not rocket science!! I will get back to you and let you know where I placed the camera using the stick0on mount.

Hello Hugo;

I think your best source for a camera mount for the DOD LS430W is to contact the DOD-tech camera people nearest to you. I know they are in the U.K., Canada, and must be in the U.S.A. along with other locations.
Be sure to specify which mount you want to buy, the suction cup or the stick-on type. It appears the mount(s) that come with the camera are unique to the DOD LS430W as the mount slides into the GPS module.
Hope this helps.....

May 8, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSHUMBA

Hello Again Slivy58;

Sorry, forgot to answer your question regarding which resolution I use. I just leave it on 1080p. I did try the 720 p, but did not like the results. A little tip with this camera for the best video capture. On an overcast day (cloudy or rainy), and you get lots of these days in B.C. set the EV to +1. All that one needs to do is press the button #14 (the button at the top of the camera as seen from the rear of the camera) it is called the Video Recording to stop recording, then press button #8 (on the right had side of the camera as seen from the rear of the camera) it is called the EV Adjustment. Finally press button #14 again to resume the video.
The button numbers used here are from the diagram of the camera I found on page 6 the 20 page DOD LS430W manual I received from DOD via a .pdf file
Again, hopefully there will be an even better camera on the horizon, but for now the DOD LS430 is probably the best DVR camera on the market today with excellent technical support from DOD Canada in Toronto.

May 8, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSHUMBA


Thanks for the tip on adjusting the EV settings and yes this spring here in BC has been full of those dismal/dreary days, even though I've been content with the results so far we may just give your suggestion a try, might be pleasantly surprised. Have to admit we've been a little complacent with this cam and Techmoan’s reviews leave little to the imagination so I have taken the “set it up and leave it alone” approach.
Hope I’m not out of line here but If you go search on YouTube for “Elky64” you’ll see some of my footage, not all are from dash cams but there are a few there… Nope, I’m not promoting anything LOL, just someone who likes toying with videos on occasion.

Regards… Slivy58

May 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSlivy58

Hi Slivy58;

I had a look at some of your YouTube videos under Elky64.
Must say, I am most impressed, with your camera and posting skills.
Particularly the video taken with the DOD LS430W of the exact same route on both March 3rd & 4th, 2014.
I can clearly see the differences in the road conditions, the speeds vary slightly, the scenery is identical and the GPS coordinates are rock steady.
I must learn how to post some of my footage onto YouTube. How does one post two videos side by side ?
A note to all dash cam users, keep your windshield or windscreen clean both inside and outside, and do not use any tinted windows, as this reduces the video quality.

May 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSHUMBA


Thanks for the kind words, I am by no means an expert in producing videos yet like having fun and playing around every once in awhile. As for the side-by-side aspect, video editing software that has the picture-in-picture (PiP) effect was used, in the video you are talking about Cyberlink's PowerDirector12 was used... Have many editing programs and none are considered high-end ($100 CAD or less) nor do I prefer one over the other, they all have their likes and dislikes for me and it comes down to the PC I'm using at that particular time.

Regards... Slivy58

May 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSlivy58

Thank you for the useful review. It was the main reason I chose to purchase the LS430W. While I know there are some unnecessary features built into this device on the whole It suits my requirements very well. The image quality is extremely good in all light and the unit (so far) appears very reliable. I particularly like the speed display.

I have a couple of reservations however; The compass display often appears to 'freeze', displaying North even while the vehicle is travelling in other directions (this only affects the compass on the unit, the compass display on the video player works fine) and the video player shows incorrect coordinates. While the latitude on the image imprint displays the correct 37 48' 43.67" S for example, the coordinates below on the panel show -37 11' 23.00" S (note the minus sign prefix AND the 'S' suffix). Longitude, on the other hand, is always correct. The latitude also appears to increase as I travel North and vice versa, the opposite of what should occur in the Southern Hemisphere. Is it possible the software isn't properly set up for downunder?

The only other gripes I have are that the speed warning 'beep' is almost inaudible and the manual totally inadequate.

May 19, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMichaelH

Here is the link to the DOD LS430W manual. It is a free .pdf download.

As for your questions regarding the display of your lat/long coordinates, sorry, not able to help you with that one. Suggest you contact DOD-tech and ask for Tech Support, or email them with your question. They have been most helpful to me. The variations may be caused by "gaps" in GPS coverage where you live or operate the camera. I live in Canada, about three hours west of Toronto and have not experienced any issues with the coordinates or the speed display. Perhaps Slivy58 can add some input here.

May 19, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSHUMBA

Thanks for the link, however that's the same inadequate 'manual' that I have.

I've decided not to worry about the incorrect coordinates on the video player - there's obviously some problem in the programme.

As far as the compass display is concerned I shall try to contact DOD though they don't appear to have a local agent. I took the car on an extended run today and the same thing keeps happening - sometimes the compass works, sometimes it doesn't. I could understand it losing contact with satellites occasionally but if that were the case surely the speed display would also be affected, but it isn't.

If I have any success I'll report back...

May 20, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMichaelH

Having tested the new camera for a few weeks now I can update my earlier post. The compass display is definitely not working correctly - it cannot display a westerly heading! When it's working it's fine with N, S, and E but it's never (repeat, never) shown a heading on the W side - weird or what? It still drops out frequently.

The software issue with the coordinate display is constant so I've chosen to ignore it. I understand there are other viewers available that will read the coordinates, G sensor data etc so perhaps I should just dump the DOD viewer.

QUERY: I am confused about the settings for the G sensor. Is 'high' the most sensitive, or least?

June 9, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMichaelH

Great post, thanks - I bought the LS400W a while back, but hadn't gottenr ound to fitting it for a variety of reasons. I now am ready to, using a fuse-tap connector to hard wire it into my fusebox to save trailing wires, and by using this mount I got via Amazon UK -

It certainly looks like it should fit, and be less bulky than the suction holder provided. My rear-view mirror has auto-dim so is pretty bulky, though that's the obvious place to try to hide the camera as well as keep the screen clear for myself, so I hope this mount works better.

June 11, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDave Jennings

I have read that it is 'illegal' to fit these for 2 main reasons
1. In most cars the mounts supplied will result in the camera impeding on the 'wiper area' of the windscreen by more than is permitted under the Road Traffic Act 1988 - in a lot of reviews on here this is the case.
2. The screen display is not automatically switched off when the ignition is on. Even though it can be switched off after 10 secs or more in the menu, the fact that it can be turned on whilst driving is irrelevant as the driver has control over the display when the ignition is on.

Does anyone know if this is true - or just scaremongering.

June 16, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPeter West

Peter West was asking about the legality of installing a dash video camera in your vehicle. All I can say is check with your local provincial or state authority and ask. To be absolutely certain, ask to see the written legislation if any exists. As for mounting the camera, I tried using the suction mount on my windscreen/windshield and it let go a few times and fell off. Fortunately, I had looped the power cable around the rear view mirror and that saved it from falling to the floor. I contacted DOD-Tech in Toronto, Canada and requested another mount as I learned from another poster on this site ("Slivy58") that his camera was shipped with both the suction mount and the stick-on mount. The trouble with the suction mount is: it is too small, or the suction cup should have been larger. Also too, the length of the suction mount is too long. DOD-Tech was very understanding and supportive and were kind enough to send me the second mount without charges. (Thanks DOD-Tech Toronto). I placed the stick-on mount just to the right of the rear view mirror as high as possible and ensuring the camera was not obstructed by the mirror or the shaded area at the top of the windscreen. Remember, this is a wide-angle lens (140 degrees). I conducted several "dry-runs" to ensure I got it right the first time, as this stick-on mount is very effective. I placed the stick-on mount in the shaded or pebbled area at the top of my Subaru's windshield/windscreen. Not sure how I will remove this mount, likely using a gentle solvent in the event I decide to remove it one day. The stick-on mount is rock steady, and I forget the camera is there as I can only see a small portion of the camera from my driving position. The camera does not at all interfere with my view of the road or terrain. Here in Ontario, Canada, the use of any hand-held device while operating a vehicle is a no-no and drivers will be ticketed and fined approximately $300.00. Even if you are stopped in traffic, such as waiting for a traffic light to change, one must not use any device, including a GPS or a dash camera. I set my dash camera to the three minute setting to display video, then the display goes blank as I do not look at what I am recording while driving. If you want to review the video recorded, then do it when you are not driving and in a safe location. Again, the traffic laws vary with jurisdiction, and programming or adjusting your dash camera while operating a vehicle could get you into trouble. So, set it up, mount it carefully, then sit back and let the camera do the work and forget it is there. Tip, always keep your windshield clean both inside and out to ensure the best video, oh, 1080p is the best setting.
Someone asked about the GPS and compass readings, all I can say is my DOD LS430W works a treat and I have not had any issues with it. Perhaps try another camera, but first contact DOD-Tech and explain to them what is happening. DOD-Tech have been excellent with their customer support.
Hope this helps....would appreciate any

Great review, you've convinced me to buy this dashcam.

BTW, you can set DOD Player to show the speed in mph as well - select "View" -> "Settings" from the upper menu or click on the green settings icon (the one which looks like a cogwheel) and select MPH.

June 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDan

Yes, the LS430W can be set to Kilometers or the "old and outdated" system ...something called miles per hour.
Both the Brits and my dear neighbours to the south are still using the old system.

June 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSHUMBA

Nothing intrinsically wrong with using MPH - I prefer it, even in this metricated country. I've even set my car's odometer to miles - really upsets the service people when I take it in for work..

I can confirm that my LS430W compass display really cannot show West. When I reach the top of the street, if I turn left it displays East, if I turn right it displays North. Perhaps it's still stuck in the Cold War era - the West does not exist!

June 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMichaelH

I find it strange that here in the UK we buy fuel in litres but still measure speed in MPH - probably becuase of the cost of changing all the speedometers - sorry, oddometers ;-)

Does anyone have a problem with the GPS locking on satellites on heavily clouded days?

June 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPeter West

Hi There, I have just bought this model on the strength of your excellent review - thanks. As well as using it for everyday normal usage, I intend to use it to record my european travels in my camper van, which tend to be broken down into 5 hours (max) travelling per day - perhaps for 3 or 4 continuous days. What would you suggest as the best set up to record the whole journey and then to save that, rather than continuously overwrite the footage. (I want to keep a permanent video record of particular journeys).
Erik Thomas.

August 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterErik Thomas

I really wouldn't recommend recording a travelogue on a Dashcam...any more than filming a wedding on a GoPro. If you have no alternative device, I suppose you could determine how much time will fit on a SD card then swap them over before they loop. It's a while since I've used this camera so can't remember if looping can be turned might be worth looking thorough the menus to see.
