Dash Cam Suggestions

So, I did a search and couldn't find much of anything pertaining to dash cams that's recent. I've been seriously thinking about this since road rage and insurance scams seem to be more and more common these days. If you run a dash cam, what kind is it and are you happy with it. There are a lot of options out there, but I wanted to see what consumers such as you think instead of relying on product reviews from web sites. Thanks in advance and drive safe!

I got mine off Amazon for about 20 bucks. Been working great for about 2 years now.

I think I'm about to pull the trigger on a nice one since my car just got hit Friday while sitting in the back of a parking lot out of everyone's way. 😡

If you own a GoPro, the device works great as a dash cam. They are overkill, but the upside is that the GoPro can survive just about anything. Plus it is small enough to disappear behind the rear view mirror, out of your line of sight.

The only problem with go pros is they are very likely to get stolen if noticed since almost everyone knows what a go pro is. But I'll probably use my go pro in the mean time before I get my dash cam.

This is true. However, even with a regular dash cam I would take it down if I am out of the car.

Dash Cam Suggestions

I have an A118C. Works great and takes great video. It was around $50. It's also concealed. Looks like it's part of the window and not a camera. Lots of YouTube reviews on it.

I had a cheaper one and the video quality was horrible. The frame rate wasn't steady and night video was terrible also.

A head's up; GoPro Hero3 White edition has terrible low light / night abilities.

I use the DOD LS460W and it works very well day or night. Worked so well in traffic court the other guy was sentenced to 2 months and anger management classes. They are on sale right now.

I had a cheap Uniden, which was OK, but the suction cup DID NOT suck... the cam kept falling off the windshield, no matter how I cleaned & prepped the glass & suction cup. I also wanted something with more features (and the capability of more memory) so I got a Falcon. It mounts to the windshield with a double sided adhesive tape. I just put in in a couple of weeks back, so not too much experience with it, but the picture quality and night performance are heads and shoulders above the Uniden.

This is what I run.

Compustar Dash CD-3200

Runs full 1080 with front and rear facing camera.

They run all the time but have sensors, so it bookmarks "events" like a bump or collision

It also has a micro USB and USB to plug it into your computer and blow the videos up to full size. Along with a great operating program to view each file in sequence without digging for an exact moment in time for hours.
