    Re: Dash Cams

    I bought the one Kim Komando had on her website but I paid a lot more for it than the same ones I've seen of Amazon under a different name. It works great and you can use up to a 32gig card which will give you a little over 200 minutes of continuous recording. It comes with a long power cable and suction cup mount. I mounted it on the left side just below my mirror and ran the power cable up in the head liner down the rubber on the post, under dash and console to the power socket under the driver seat.

    Hi guys,
    I'm curious as to what one would do with a dash cam? Other than the police, what uses would there be? Not trying to be a smart a**, just curious.
    Thanks,
    Dan

    Re: Dash Cams

    I had a guy one Saturday morning run down the median and cut in front me, slamming on his brakes. Lucky for me the right lane had cleared allowing me the to do a quick lane change. There was no way I could have stopped my car to keep from hitting him. He was drive a Ford F250 and would have total my car if I had hit him. The accident would have been my fault if I couldn't proof what he had done. Also those who run red light also bothers me. That is the reason I got a dash cam, just a small price to pay for some added insurance.

    Re: Dash Cams

    Looks nice but I could not justify three or four hundred dollars for a dash cam.

    Re: Dash Cams

    Dash cams are really popular in Russia. Seems like it's the "in" thing. They are forever posting videos of strange things (yes, including lots of accidents) onto youtube. Makes for entertaining viewing sometimes, but I, too, can't justify $400 for it. But then, it would be good to have video evidence if someone caused a wreck, and it wasn't your fault.

    Re: Dash Cams

    For those of you who would like to have a dash cam but don't want to spend the big bucks these are amazingly good for what you pay for them and can take a 32GB micro-SD card.

    There are lots of vendors selling the same thing all over ebay and Amazon, so don't take my link for a recommendation, I just pulled that one quick to show you what I was talking about. I use one of these on my motorcycle and I love the flexibility of being able to out it in a dash or windshield mount or to clip it to a pocket or lapel.

    The one I have has a drop down screen to monitor with or for playback. It also has a nighttime setting.

    So the past few weeks I have actually been looking at 2 dash cams they had and the price is not bad for them

    Re: Dash Cams

    1 other question
    will a dash cam really make a difference or is it just a cool thing to have ?
    like i guess what i am asking is
    ok so you rear end someone
    in the eye of the LAW and Insurance company you are at fault

    Now if i have a dash cam and i have it on and it records someone getting infront of me and slamming on there breaks after cutting me off
    will that really help me to get out of trouble in court and prove an accident is not my fault or for my insurance company to not hold me at fault ?

    also same question about if someone is infront of me and they are stopping or it showes them slowing down but they have 1 or 2 break lamps out will that help me to be not at fault ?
    or is it really just going to help for evidence in court if they try to sew me
    but im still going to be held at fault for the accident ?

    Re: Dash Cams

    Absolutely it will. It will show exactly what happened. I've been wanting one for years beause there are so many scammers like this. But to answer your question yes it will save your ass in many situations. I hope to have mine by the weekend.
