Just a quick update, although it’s showing gps map can’t get it to show so I need to connect them to see if it’s me or it’s not available.
Oh, that is interesting..

So when you say "showing GPS map" where do you actually see this, is it within the FitCamX phone App, and not on the images ? ?

That was the reason I asked, as in all the posts I have found about the FitCamX, it doesn't show your position co-ordinates or speed on the images like my current NextBase.

It’s on the logs but you can just use portrait mode and just have image, but I can’t find how to get this working, I’ve emailed them so will update.

About to order a FitCamX, but just wondering where to get it from..

Currently £169 on amazon, or £138 on Aliexpress, but I guess the latter is also subject to some kind of import tax.

So, just interested if you got caught with any import tax on your Aliexpress order Betty W ?

Could it be as much as the £30 difference to an Amazon order ?

All imports to the UK that aren't gifts worth less than £39 are subject to VAT afaik, it's just a case of if you get caught and whether the seller underreports value/marks it as a gift etc. VAT at 20% brings the total cost to £165.60,
there might also be import duty depending on the type of goods. Then sometimes the courier slaps you with brokerage fees for providing the "service" of collecting and paying HMRC (anywhere from £5 to 2.5% of the value!).

I was lucky, so it’s just a gamble really.

This YouTube vid shows how to fit them much better than I could explain, very simple to do.
