    Dash Cams

    Hi fellow forum members.

    Considering a dashcam and just wondered if opinions could be shared about those whom may already be using them.

    What recommendations do you have?

    Thanks

    2017 Discovery Si6 HSE Corris Grey

    On the basis that it’s only there for those insurance moments I bought a cheapie one from Halfords. I note they are even cheaper now on Amazon as they have been updated...

    Does a perfectly acceptable job and HD footage is actually good enough to use snippets in holiday videos.

    Has advantage of being easily removable from screen mount if you want to avoid someone nicking it.
    But remember to put it back before you start off again.

    Using Blackvue DR900S 2 channel, with 4K at front and HD at the rear.
    Records simultaneously and is WiFi/Cloud compatible, No need too remove the memory card for viewing. Also got the widget which keeps on recording after the car is parked up and switched off.
    Still recording from 9am to 5pm when Mrs is at work, so peace of mind incase someone accidentally hits it or interferes with it. It's also come down by £100. Amazing clear footage, far better than the cheap one I got, with poor blurry washed up images.
    In my opinion you have to fork out for the best image quality.

    I forgot to mention that I replaced my cheap one with a semi decent one, after I returned it.

    Road angel Halo dual camera.

    Wifi compatible just like blackvue

    2K front camera and HD rear camera.

    Half the price of the blackvue and records when vehicle is stationary.

    Reason I went for this as have purchased several RA products in the past, and all do what it says on the tin.

    Definately worth a look at, if on a budget.

    Decent images as well, not on par with the Blackvue, but then it's half the price, but miles better than the cheap one I briefly had. Like I said in post above you have to pay for quality, plus no doubt the longevity of the unit. Buy cheap but twice. Just my tuppence worth. Thumbs Up
