    Dash Cams

    Anybody have one? Suggestions?

    I'm on the road a lot, narrowly missed several accidents lately, roads are overrun by stupid people.... I've been considering getting a camera for a while. There are cheap ones out there for less than $100, but I'm wondering if a nicer camera might also do decent trail video, route tracking, etc. I've seen good reviews on the Garman 65W.

    I don't have one, but I should. I typically do 1K miles each week, and see lots of stuff that I wish I had on video. I heard something on the radio about them yesterday and actually got me curious as well.

    Fixed.

    Last fall my coworker t-boned a 2500 Ram that pulled out in front of him. Luckily there were witnesses and the truck was at fault.

    The next day, I got run off the road by a van, narrowly missed a pedestrian, then a mile down the road the van passed in median, hit a car sending it off a 30ft bank, and continued a quarter mile before it couldn't go any more. I stopped, gave my first aid kit to the guys in the car and let them sit on the tailgate until EMS and cops showed up. I got to give my statement to the cops and both parties' insurance companies on that one...

    I've been using a $40 chinese one in mine for over a year. I'll have to check the model but I got it off Amazon. Audio and video are pretty good as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ap2HLGwi9D0
