OK, the thread below has started me thinking that every car should have a dash cam in it.
Not so I can post these idiots on youtube, but just for personal protection.
I would suspect, that without the video, the guy in the truck would swear on his mother’s grave that the lady in front of him was:
[li]going 20 MPH under the speed limit[/li][li]slamming on her brakes every time he got close[/li][li]swerved towards him when he tried to pass her, and[/li][li]ran him off the road once he was around her[/li][/ul]
Now, without any video, it’s just his word against hers. With the video, he is clearly discredited before he is even finished with his excuses.
So, I will add Dash Cam to the items that should come in very car from the factory (along with battery charger, tire pump, gas can and automatic siphon hose, & GPS). Looking on Google, however, I get bewildered. These things can cost upwards of $300 (US).
Jump over to eBay, you can find them, brand new, for 1/10th that. Literally, there are dozens under $30 delivered and for less than $50, you can get a bunch of bells and whistles.
So, what do I need? I just want a cam that can store maybe 2 hours, preferably on a SD card, so I can record a whole day if needed on a cross-country trip. What other features should I be looking for? What is a waste?
