thanks.
Sorry dude, I dont know anything about it. That site looks pretty good for reviews, I found it myself the other day

Gotcha... I found out there's a knock-off (Mine) and a real one that works much better. Check out that site, both are actually on there

it works GREAT !

front and rear cams, I hang it from a clip on my mirror,
the unit is pretty small and works awesome

it simply saves 2 files to the memory cards (front and rear). I have a 32gb
microSD in it. works flawlessly

another option

Check out website: www.dvryourcar.com.......guy on there selling $90 HD (720) dash cams. He has a friend here on TacomaWorld (sytfu510) that has a thread about those cameras, I think the thread is HD DVR vehicle dash cams if you wanna search it here and review(one guy on there did a VERY detailed review). I just purchased one and received it yesterday, going to install it right now and drive around to test it out. I'll post up my review soon. One critical thing w/ just about ANY of these cameras is to use a top quality SD memory card, class 10, one that has the fastest writing capability.....like sandisk extreme. Good Luck!

I think I know what my hood scoop wants to be when it grows up!

Sub'ed as well.

Last year I had a cabbie pop his sh#! box minivan into reverse at a red light and stage an accident. He then tried to claim material, medical and emotional damages. No witnesses of course.



A couple of related personal 'mod' thoughts/daydreams:
  1. A mini-bullet camera would probably fit well in the hood scoop (give it some function!)... less clutter on the dash and less chance of the camera being mistaken for a radar detector when driving in regions where they're banned. Line of sight is my biggest concern here. Perhaps the lens would burn through a mesh grill like a riflescope glare shade?
  2. Can someone smarter than I tell us if it is possible splice the video feed into the dash monitor? My kids would WAY rather watch the real world on a screen!
  3. Could the stock B/U camera also be fed to a recorder?
  4. I have house cameras w/IR LEDs (B&W). I put an LED IR flood on a pole in the back yard that lights up the whole space and dramatically increases the range of the camera. I wonder how well an LED IR bar mounted on the grill and one of these cameras would work. Silly to most I know but to those who are smiling... yes "RECCE own the night"... even in your civi TACO!
If nothing else the above would make for some great trail vids! Thoughts?

A little pricey at $300, but it has a ton of features. Comes with a 16GB card and does 3 minute files sequentially until the card is full and then it starts deleting the oldest. High res, small and compact, can be set up on constant power with parking mode (starts recording when there is movement and the car is turned off) etc. Lots of accessories like UV lens filters and other things. Worth looking into if you don't mind the $$

Car cameras/dvr

Yeah $330 is a little pricey but I'd say worth it if camera truly does produce quality high res video and dvr records it all as it should. Another good site to check out (but also a little pricey, because I believe it's quality product, no first hand knowledge on that tho but hopefully soon!) is www.adrenalinecamera.com
I'm interested in getting their 620 TVL camera for $195, that is super high resolution and would probable record some AMAZING quality video out the windshield of my Tacoma! Also considering a one or four channel mobile dvr from supercircuits.com

Mine is a Smarty BX1500. So far, so good after one year. Has 3-axis accelerometer and GPS logging for accident reconstruction. Records in SD.

Dash Cam Gopro

Here is a hit and run accident I caught the first day I installed my dash cam, within the first week of getting my truck. It is one of those cheap 2.5" flip screen ones from china. I love how easy the auto record and loop features are but I have a go-pro black and the quality is so much better. I would love to be able to use it instead and rig an auto power on-record mode. My other concern is that I need to be able to keep it hidden somehow so no one tries to break in and steal it.
