If so, what's your power source, did you do front and rear, and what model dashcam did you go with?

Thanks in advance.

I thought about it, but the surround vision recorder does a nice enough job and it only needed a $15 SD card. My dad bought one of the GM affiliated dash cams for his '20 Sierra though and likes it. I'll try to get the name
The surround vision recorder on mine doesn't record while the vehicle is in motion. Does yours?

I had the surround camera issue but once that was resolved it works 100% of the time. Got a 128GB SD card in it with no issues
Am using a Fat32 32GB Class 10 max endurance. Didn't know we could go bigger - not that we need to. Good to know.

It turns out that I do indeed have the record while you drive feature and it's automatic. The quality sucks but it's mostly to help make a case in the event of an accident. I still might get a forward-facing dashcam that records in HD.

The more I use this video recorder feature, the more I like it. Again, the video quality puts me in mind of a Philco TV circa 1975 but it records separate tracks forward, rearward and to the sides. This is more than adequate for most situations where you need to prove something in the event of an accident. I have decided against the bother of installing a dashcam.

The performance data recorder in my CT5-V is way higher quality in terms of a dashcam but it's frontward facing only (AFAIK).
