Dash Cam recommendations

Does any EFers care to share their recent experiences with these devices? Iím thinking, for my own peace of mind, that having one would improve my driving experience.

Iím not planning on uploading videos to a YouTube channel or anything similar.

Iíd hope this type of thing would be unnecessary in a civilised country, but experiences with overly aggressive drivers in the last days is making me think otherwise. Thank you.

Re: Dash Cam recommendations

Plenty of info online. I personally think it's a good idea to have a rear facing camera too.

Re: Dash Cam recommendations

If you wanted to try things out to see how they work and if they are useful to you, Ottos often have a cheap and cheerful model for about CHF 25.- (plus you need the memory card for each). It you want a very good model, they will be well above CHF 100.-

The front AND back idea is very good. Keep in mind, you need a lighter plug to run these (unless someone else has another idea). Check if you have a plug in the trunk / back cargo area for the back camera.

I have one sitting in my office. Can't seem to get myself motivated enough to install it. One of these days.

Thanks, there is a lot of information on-line, in fact too much. That is why I was hoping to get EFers views.

Re: Dash Cam recommendations

I have the Transcend DrivePro50 for ~2 years now. No problems so far. I value small size over anything else, that's why I chose this model.
