  1. I cant seems to get any answer when you call there no one to answer your call all they want is for you to place an order no one take the time to fond out what you want as long you place your order and give them your credit card why cant you have live people so we can ask question we need to know before placing an order.

  2. I have purchased the HD Mirror Cam a while back when it first came out as they said then I too not the SD card for this cam i have tried every store I have a broken lighter attachment that cannot be replace at any store I tried calling but to no avail how can I get this SD card and my attachment replace I have the cam in my car i can it trying to record but there is nothing to hold the recording if I have AN Accident I will have no proof so please send things that is needed for this camera to work right

  3. Sent mind back and still waiting for a refund. Sent back return receipt and was received on 1/6/20. Twenty days and still waiting for refund. Notified the BBB and my credit card company and I will wait to see what happen – sent back because camera was junk and was missing the SD card and reader that were to come with the HD Mirror Cam, very low picture resolution.

  4. I purchased this HD Mirror Cam. it works but I have different issues than most listed here. I couldnt find an Sd card rated 6 or above so I puchased a 32gb sandisck ultra pro with speeds up to 100 kbs. The cam does not recognize the sd card. It also does not recognize the one that cam with the cam. While plugged in I get a constant power icon. My cam never got the green power bars as indicated in the user manual. In the top center, it sometimes flashes a little red light and sometimes blue and red. There is nothing in the user manual addressing this. Tried serveral times calling and emailing the customer service and help desk. No response or replies. Horrible company. terrible product probably made in china.

  5. I bought mirror cam, both wont charge , both chargers dont work dont charge, waste of money ,Im glad I didnt give it as a gift, Big scam, checked fuses in both chargers both ok so bugger if I know, as in the other comments doesnt stay charged after first day of using

  6. To get auto on/off, your charger port must be controlled by the ignition, otherwise you will have to manually turn it on/off. The menu is very hard to navigate, especially when the menu and mode buttons are mislabeled in the instructions. There is no high resolution, just 720P which will not read a license plate in front of you. Forget the night time use, just streetlamps show up in the video.

  7. Purchased HD Mirror Cam. Paid $25 for a 32gb sd card with speed of 10. It suggested nothing under 6. Plugged it in like instructed. Nothing. Reset it. Nothing. Took card out and unplugged it and put it all back togeather and NOTHING!!!

  8. My hd cam worked the first day then it’s been on the logo screen ever since. I held in the reset for 15 seconds and nothing soooooo disappointing

  9. I get this HD mirror cam,did not work send it back, got 2nd one still dont work
    now I would like my money back (from what I heard good luck on that )

  10. I get this HD mirror cam,did not work send it back, got 2nd one still dont work
    now I would like my money back (from what heard good luck on that )

  11. i have had my mirrorcam for about a year now. Worked fine until now. Now the camera works for about 10 seconds and then shuts off.

  12. mine quit working after about 7 month. It started giving me an error message that the SD card was full when it wasn’t, then started giving the error that there was no SD card installed? tried to reformat the card and still getting the errors. now it just freezes in the start mode.. never really like the quality of the camera which does not provide a very wide or down field view.. lesson learned. time to look for a new camera..

  13. Nightmare experience!! run as fast as you can away from this company. I have been going round and round for 7 mths with Inventel trying to get my money back!!! I had been contacting customer service in New Jersey!! I received reassurances of my money being returned after returning the mirror. No problem, sent the mirror back, NO return of my money. Called back again–cust. service is now in INDIA. None of my info is there–Now I have to file a Dispute with my Bank!! Nightmare experience!!!

  14. Thank you everyone for your honest feedback. I was going to purchase the camera for my father whom is a truck driver. They need to remove the infomercial from tv. THANKS

  15. Bought two and after one month only one works. I have contacted HDMirrorCam but have not heard back from them. Still waiting to see if I can get a replacement.

    • Unanimous consensus. This item is a piece of crap. Likewise, after owning two for several months only one still works. The camera stopped working on the other. Buyer beware. Slick advertising will draw you in.

  16. We ordered one and received it , within two months the charger cord fell apart, I call the company and was told a replacement cord will be sent, after 2ninths I called back still no replacement cord, they said they would send another one , still no cord, after several months and several emails and phone call we sti don’t have a replacement cord. This product is not backed up at all so use caution in getting this. I DO NOT recommend this product to anyone ..!!!!!!!!!

  17. Thank you to everyone who responded by providing a review of the HD Mirror Cam. I was considering buying this unit for my car to assist with my vehicel insurance.
    Well . . . that won’t be happening now.
    If what all the comments are saying is true (& there’s no reason for me to think otherwise), I think it is a disgrace that there are such false advertising claims made on the displaying of this product on TV. I do know there are laws that govern false advertising, & it’s a pity the seller of this product doesn’t abide them.

  18. I installed the HD Mirror Cam yesterday and went out for breakfast.
    1. The video is far worse than claimed. I couldn’t even read the license plate numbers on the vehicle in front of me at a red light.
    2. Video too bright in daytime driving.
    3. I didn’t bother trying the night time feature because I’m returning it.

    One last comment: I don’t like how they end up completing the transaction without a final approval. After I entered PayPal and it directed me back to their sight, no further option for final approval.

    I had changed my mind but it was too late. It came anyway.

    Be careful. If you start the purchase, it is highly likely the purchase will become finalized whether or not you want it to.

  19. I just received mine. The charger doesn’t fit in my car charger. It’s too long. I am able to charge it with me phone charger but it only lasts for an hour. (Maybe)

  20. Really Thank you for everyone’s reply I was about to buy two and reading the review I decided NOT buy anything from them.

  21. yes same problem,and had to disconnect from veh.had problems with it messing with electrical .interior lights flashing radio would not go off. couldnot find a fix until i unpluged mirror cam and everthing is normal now.wow that hd mirror cam is junk.

  22. I just ordered two mirror cams for forty-nine dollars apiece and they charged my credit two hundred and forty dollars. I called the credit card company and hope l cancel led I time. Some scam they pulled.


    • Yea, that was my experience as well. The video is terrible, especially when it is bright out. Didn’t bother trying the night time feature. Returning it.

  24. The advertise as HD Mirror cam, even their website is called HDmirrorcam.com. I bought it and it only has 720p and VGA, no HD 1080. I called and the guy told me that they had sold out of HD so they were shipping SD. I am trying to get a refund.

  25. Garbage bought 2 and both do not work they claim to send replacement but never did. there customer service is in India and you can’t understand them. RUN RUN RUN FROM THEM!!!!!!!!!!

  26. I bought 3, one for each vehicle I have. Guess what, only 1 works. Good luck getting a resolution to you problem as you have to deal with the person that sold it to you not the company. What a piece of crap. Guess I need to post this on social media since their only interest is getting you money!

  27. I was a about to order one, but after reading the reviews… I know that I will keep my money. Thanks to all the honest reviews.

  28. With ALL the bad feedback from this company, WHY is it still being sold and the Infomercial still on TV???
    This needs to be turned into someone from the state where these are coming from. Don’t let them keep there business going and screwing people out of there money!

    • Perhaps it may have been returned but forgot to take it out and on-sold it perhaps? Sounds dodgy to me.
      I saw it advertised on TV and decided to check it out on the internet. I’m glad I did. Thanks for your feedback.

  29. I ordered 1 and was charged for 2 called to have one taken off they charged me with a 3rd one, now I have to wait till it post to try and get my money back, what a rip off

  30. When I first ordered my mirror cam, I was charged twice when I only purchased one, but I was reimbursed! Shipping was fast!! Opening the package I was a bit worried that it would only work being plugged in, but I was wrong! It takes about 3-4 hours to fully charge it. It’s so easy to use! The buttons are pretty much self explanatory, a 5 year old can use it! I have not tried looking or uploading what I’ve recorded on my computer, so I can’t comment on that. I do wish I had this BEFORE I wrecked my car in June though! Even after having a police officer as a witness & him issuing a failure to yield ticket to the gentlemen I rammed into, his insurance company doesn’t want to pay because they’re saying it was my fault!? Now, I can record everything and anything that happens on the road! I’m so glad for this device! It’s really neat.

    • how long did it take you to get reimbursed? was talking to a person on chat and lost contact, I guess this was a ruse also

  31. Worked straight out of the box and no problems with the actual use, however, when I remove the card and place it in the reader and then into my computer all the file names and such are in Chinese and every file I click on asks to search for an app to access it.

  32. I too have recive the HD Mirror Camera but it dose work at all, it can’t play back, it dosent hold a full charge afther beening charge 16 hr in car. It doent hold up the date & thime stamp an there costumer sevrice is a lier to. Ho herd of a 48hr return lapel taking so long to recived. They have also sent an email that states I want a replacement too which I,ve never sent to them. If your looking for more info you can email me at gmburdelljr@gmail anytime. Please dont buy this product for they will get to you anyway they can.

  33. The bracket that the rubber band pieceses hook to one on each side broke off can’t replace them in parts list

  34. I just paid for this over the phone it was supposed to b 49.99 plus 10.00 s/h, 2.00 insurance and 8.00 for SD card. My total came up to 141.93 (huh) I immediately stopped payment. Never did I talk to an agent and u can’t. This is a scam save your buy something similar from a truck stop, Walmart or best buy where u can talk and inquire about the product. Middle finger to this company

  35. I can’t figure out how to set up the proper date and time.the instructions do not tell you.

  36. Save your money people. The rear view mirror vibrates like crazy, it does not set up as easy as indicated, some features are not even found. There is no ten minute loop recording, it only goes as high as 5 min. no setting can be located to turn off the screen and still be recording. When you set the motion detection feature on, you can forget capturing anything that might happen while you are in the store or in your driveway, because when you shut off the vehicle, the thing resets it self and goes off. then when you get back in, you have to go into the menu and turn it back on. Internal parts can be heard rattling around inside the Mirror while diving. As far as the tactic of getting a ticket with other devices, if you check with any police officer, they will tell you as long as it is not in direct line of site, you will not get a ticket. Most people have more obstructions hanging from their Mirror,s than a cam would block. I even contacted the company about the loop recording feature and was give a vague reply that led nowhere.

    • You have really helped me with your honesty! I was about to order it til I read this. Thanks a million. I really wanted it for when I’m not in my car, but you said it doesn’t work. Thanks again

  37. I just have a suggestion, you need to find a way to develope a four way mirror. If you get hit where the camera isn’t pointed to, you have no proof. No one has time to turn the camera during a accident.

  38. I like it except during playback the video jerks a little, I wish it played smoother. You get what you get for the price. I give it four stars
