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:
- 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?
- 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!
- Could the stock B/U camera also be fed to a recorder?
- 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?
