Anybody else have one?

I got it because last week at 4:30 am a lorry on the m6 was in the middle lane of the narrowed lane roadworks and weaving all over the place.  Nearly putting me into the concrete barrier about 6 times.

This morning on the 62 (again in the roadworks) at 4am i moved over to let a car out of a junction and he decided brake check the car in front of me because he didnt move over quick enough.

The standard of driving seems to be getting worse and peoples temprement when driving is just ridiculous.

I have had one for a couple of weeks. Well worth the investment, especially if you are a safe driver.

I got my mum one after she had an issue with the blame game after a car accident, if it wasn't for the bus driver then she would have had to take the blame for it.

They are well worth the money and can save you all the hassle of fighting your corner if you are ever unfortunate to have an accident.

The camera never lies. Very Happy

I got one of this one which is easy to use (maybe cheaper elsewhere)...

You can get them a lot cheaper on eBay and elsewhere. Not to the spec of your one Karly but you can get them for less than £20.

I have seen some of the ones on Ebay for about 15 quid but the way I see it is that what happens if it fails at the moment you really need it or the driver has caused an accident to your car and has driven off but perhaps the video quality isn't good enough to capture the number plate?

They seem far too cheap for comfort to me and a sub £100 investment isn't a lot of money in the long term if it saves you from being shafted by your insurance company.

The one I suggested above cost about £75 and I have seen this model a little cheaper on Ebay.

I don't need a dash cam.

I just set the video camera running on my phone and then hold it on top of my steering wheel and watch the screen.

Hah! Take that, dangerous drivers, don't mess with me.

Mine does as well. Made in China and cost about £15 plus postage. There really is very little that can go wrong with them and you simply plug them into the lighter and Hey Presto!

I haven't tried it for dogging yet but it does have a nightlight!

Insurance companies should offer discounts if you have a dashcam. If you then have an accident it's a lot easier to see who was at fault.

I got one last Christmas after being badly cut up by a taxi (Manchester Streetcars!!).  Cost about £120 and Halfords fitted it for me for £30. We've got  one in both our cars- they're a good investment.

It was all part of the purchase price. Halfords fitted it into the cars electronics (My car is a CRV and the missus has got a Jazz). All the cabling and connections come with the device itself. I thought that for £30 I might as well let them do it as thy know what to do- and I would be clueless.

They all generally come with a cigarette style charger that is long enough to follow around the trim inside the car.

I went from the cigarette socket to under the passenger seat and then up the trim in between both doors and simply followed it round.

It's quite easy to peel back the rubber seal enough between the roof lining and trim so it gives enough room to store the thickness of the cable so it doesn't show.

For the brand I suggested earlier on, you can buy an accessory set to hard wire these in to the fuse box leaving your cigarette socket free.

But with most of them you don't need to use the cigarette lighter - the kit allows you to plug it into the electronics of the car. There are connecting points in all modern cars under the bonnet. It means no messy cables inside the car itself- it just pokes down from under the windscreen trim. When  I leave the car I just detach the camera from the camera holder and stick it in my pocket (or in the glove compartment)- so no scrote can break in and thieve it.

I've just edited my post to add that they do a hard wire kit fr permanent connection. Smile
