We have a Rexing 4K cam in the MH we bought over 4 years ago and they still sell it:

But more recently we have installed these BlueSkySea cams with rear camera add-on in both our daily drivers:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08LTWG5LG/

No issues with any of them.

We’re very happy with this tiny Garmin mini. It sits pretty much invisibly behind the rear view mirror and when wired to an ignition switched power supply requires no interaction at all.Click image for larger version

I have the same Rexing as 16ACE27. I contacted Rexing just after purchasing it for my Camaro SS because I wanted to buy an additional dash/cigarette lighter power cable in order to also use it inside my coach. I didn't want to have to pull the power cable out each time of the Camaro and use it inside the coach on trips without buying a second camera. Rexing asked me to send them a photo of my install in my Camaro and they sent me an additional power cable for free. I was so surprised with their customer service. It works great and is easy to use. I have been using it for several years now.

Nope, New Posts. But dashcams are so generic I felt I could get away with posting in a DRV thread.

The Rexing posted above looks like a good candidate as we are also looking at dash cams. It shows on Amazon as a 170 degree field of vision.
Does this look fish eyed when you replay the video?

It gives a very good video. I had a guy recently back up into my front end not realizing I was behind him since he never looked back. When I replayed my dash cam video, I noticed that he also did not have white back up lights and that is why I never noticed him suddenly backing up into me or I would have backed up to avoid him.

I just bought a cheap on on sale 3 years ago. The latest are Bluetooth/wifi enabled. This way you can get the footage from the camera to your phone easily and wirelessly.
The only reason I have mine is Incase of an accident

Has anyone checked footage of a license plate from a moving vehicle in front of them? Is it legible?

I would want evidence also as you are always following your wife to the next camp site.
