I'm looking for a wireless or smart parking sensor that's easy to install. I'm not much for wiring anything...When I look online most options seem to be extremely complicated or expensive. Any help would be much appreciated. I'm buying a used car soon and need to know options soon so I can maybe have the dealership install it for me.  ;) :)

the everest is a better choice, if you're restricted to only the two.

Replacing your Pajero with an EcoSport is by no means an upgrade.

Hello. San nyo po binili yung transcend and may libre kabit din ba? Or diy lang. Ty

It's usually DIY, because it connects to the lighter plug.

Car Talk Board / 2013 Ford Everest vs 2017 Ford Ecosport

Hello we are planning to upgrade our 2000 Mitsubishi Pajero and are currently undecided. We are currently looking at two 2nd hand models. Which one is better? Is it the 2013 Ford Everest A/T with 32k Mileage or a 2017 Ford Ecosport A/T Trend with 8k Mileage. Please tell me your opinions about these two cars in terms of Performance, Ride Comfort, Reliability and Fuel Consumption. Please help me decide which one to get. One detail is that we have free access to Diesel while if we get a petrol we have to buy it ourselves. Thank you

Hi here is my review about the latest dashcam from transcend for your information. MFor starters, it harnesses the combined might of the Sony Exmor sensor and Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technologies. This grants the DrivePro 230 the ability to capture sharp, high resolution images and 1080p full HD videos at 30fps with extremely fine tonal gradation, even in adverse low light conditions and at night. What’s more, its intuitive user interface is a breeze to master, not forgetting its novel ability to snap still photos while recording videos simultaneously.



In the box:
Transcend DrivePro 230 dashcam, Transcend 16GB High-Endurance microSD card, Lighter socket charger, Suction mount (also available with adhesive mount, depends on your purchase selection)



A good memory card is key to storing critical evidence. Transcend has generously included a 16GB microSD card with the dashcam. The MLC-based NAND flash memory is designed for consistent long-life durability and endurance. You do not need to spend extra money and effort in seeking a compatible and reliable flash card to make your dashcam work. 16GB will be enough for recording 2 hours of 1080p Full HD footage. When the memory is full, the dashcam will overwrite the oldest video.



At the front, apart from the 130-degree ultra-wide angle lens, there isn’t much going on here except for the printed branding. Basics aside, there’s Wi-Fi connectivity and a GPS receiver. The former provides smartphone connectivity and social media livestreaming using a dedicated app that’s available on both Apple App Store and Google Play. The latter, on the other hand, further supplements the basic video and stills data logs by adding location, speed and time logs.



The 2.4-inch TFT LCD may not has the best viewing angle and colour reproduction, but it works just fine for a car dashboard camera. The 4 buttons under the display work for the navigation across the settings and configuration. The overall build quality is solid with high-quality finishing.

Unlike the average dashcam, the DrivePro 230 features a built-in, high capacity Li-polymer battery, meaning users don’t have to have it plugged in all the time. Crucially, this endows the DrivePro 230 with a Parking Monitoring Mode that utilises both a motion detection system and time-lapse video recording functions, thus enhancing vehicle security when parked. Rounding off its impressive basics is the presence of a decent microphone and speaker, the latter enhancing on-device playback for users.




I am very happy with the overall video quality. Even when the lighting condition changes, such as when moving into a tunnel vice versa, the camera is quick to adjust the exposure value. The recorded footage also shows the date time, GPS location as well as vehicle speed.



Night time video quality is exceptionally well with lots of details and reasonable ISO noise.

I’ve been using the Transcend DrivePro 230 dashboard camera for almost a month now and I am very satisfied with the video quality and the added security features that come with the dashcam. Transcend aims to break the conventional dashboard camera’s design where the dashcam now has more purpose than just recording videos. The added innovative security features would definitely help keep drivers and pedestrians safer on the road. All said, the Transcend DrivePro 230’s feature-rich package makes it an all-in-one device solution users can truly appreciate.

I agree with the others. We really need to discipline ourselves on the road. Having to deal with rude drivers is so tiring. I have a friend whose anger issues have gotten worse due to road rage.

Lack of discipline on the road is bad both for the society and for the citizens' mental health. :(

I agree, road rage makes everything ten times worse. But some infrastructural solutions will have to be implemented too. Not sure what, but there has to be something.

No. The jeepney is not Philippine culture. It is a symbol of resistance to change and progress to keep them running on the streets as a sorry excuse for public transport.

The whole system must be changed in order for the riding public to conveniently experience proper public transport.
