This is no way a test of quality, but if you tick the box of do you have a dashcam and get your insurance discount seems to be a very cheap way of saving more than £4.58 cost of camera*

*in no way a reflection of quality or real usability

Probably junk, but cheap enough so voted hot.
But be careful when ticking that "do you have a dashcam" box as a general rule it must be an authorised dashcam listed by your insurer.
So you would be invalidating your insurance.

Looking at some of the DCW on youtube they should charge more...

Agreed. Definitely avoid using it for cheaper insurance.

Of course check details but last quote on phone a week or two ago just asked do you have dashcam, and the answer is.... For a discount

Be wary of these cheap ass Dash cams. Video quality so poor you wont even be able to make out numberplate of the car in front of you. Plus footage is non existent at night. Spend proper money and get something you can actually use in a incident.

I Have one of these that I paid £21 for with the back cam included, the picture isn't that bad day or night and it does pickup both sides of the road and if it was to happen where someone crossed onto my side of the road or at a junction it would pick up what happened but you are correct on not being able to see the number plates I can see them from about 12ft away on it but no further but I will be investing in a better dashcam as this one is supposed to loop record which it doesn't so every 2 days I have to format the memory card for the device to work again. Gonna go for a Nextbase dashcam also the cheap one uses nearly 1gb of storage on the device for 5 mins recording at 1080p so hoefully the Nextbase will use a better format.
