Dash Cam

Who uses a dash cam? What brand/model/extras do you think are best? With so much liability exposure I want to be able to prove the other jerk was responsible.

The other thing I want to do is download some beautiful vids and stills from nice trips going down the road. How many times do you wish you could describe something you saw from through windshield?

I used to use a small Sony video camera on a dash mount. I liked that as I could grab it out of the truck for other video duties.

I picked up a Yi Ultra Dashcam for use in the RV last fall about the time I put it away for the winter. Did make a couple of videos with it, however:

(Here is 19 minutes of me driving the RV back from a local campground...What really strikes me about this video is how much the Axis rocks back and forth--that is probably exaggerated because I had the dashcam mounted up high)

Keep in mind that if you're in an accident and it happens to be your fault you are legally required to provide the video evidence. It can either help or hurt.

I'm not afraid of that. I also carry a firearm most places. I'll protect myself responsibly whether a pistol or a camera.

Exclamation

Our vehicles were rear-ended THREE TIMES in a period of about 18 months. We bought a dashcam from the "Kim Komando" radio show shop. It has two lenses - a wide angle that faces forward, and a narrower angle facing the rear. We've been using it religiously, whether in the RV, my truck, or the wife's SUV. It's easily moved from vehicle to vehicle. The model we have is no longer available, but there are plenty of dual-lens models available.

I have this GPS/Dash cam combo and it works great:

nüviCam™ LMTHD
I like having the GPS up higher so its more in my field of vision.
