Dash Cam

Recommended Posts

I've had a dash cam since the 90's (professional status). Start out cheap and work your way up depending on cost, features, modern PC/cell phone adaptability, and then what you end up running in to along the journey. They're definitely great for personal legal protection, but also cool for recording the worst of humanity. The choice is yours.

The Viofo A119 V3 is the dash cam I bought.  I hate that pretty much all of them look kind of ugly depending on where the wiring has to go, but they send a pretty long wire for this model.  This one is 1440p and has 140 degree FOV.  It also came with a gps chip (optional), I never used the gps chip though.  Besides that I bought a 128gb SD card for it, It saves pretty much everything and will just rewrite over old stuff if you never take the card out or want to go through footage. It's 99$ now, I believe it was 149$ when I first purchased it.  I probably spent 2-3 hours looking up and comparing them when I first bought it.  I'd probably say to look at some of the youtube dashcam crash videos, they usually recommend the best hardware.

I’ve been using the Thinkware brand cameras for a few years now.  My current one is the Q800 Pro    I had wired into my Grandcherokee with the rear camera too.  I mounted the main unit up by my rear view mirror where it is really not noticeable when driving but gets a great picture.   They are well worth looking into.   I tried to add a video from it to this post, but the server is not allowing it for some reason.
