Would be an ideal bundle for a new driver / xmas present - personally wouldn't be without my dash cam.

Click link, choose what colour dash cam you want and add to bundle

Pink, Black or Silver aval for dashcam

The Motorola MDC100 Full HD Dash camera gives you extra reassurance with a 2.7" display screen with 1080p HD quality for easy viewing. It also has a 120 degrees viewing angle, micro SD-Card slot for up to 32GB, motion detection and Night Vision. Micro SD Memory card not included.

Not only does this product look good, it has some clever features too. It will continually record as your drive on a loop, overwriting previous footage so you don't have to manually delete footage off the card. However, if you were to have an accident, the G sensor would recognise this from the motion of the car, saving the relevant video clip so that this isn't over written as you continue to drive and record. You can then plug the camera into your computer to view the footage and send it to others. So why would you buy a Dash Cam? Dash cams are increasingly being used and accepted by Police and Insurance companies as proof of what happened in an accident. If you are unfortunate enough to be caught up in this type of an event a Dash Cam could save you both time and money in making your claim. Several insurance companies are also now offering customer's discounts if they drive with a dash cam. So in the long run, investing in a Dash Cam could save you hundreds of pounds! The camera will record the footage on a loop so you do not need to keep emptying the memory card, however if you do need to use the footage, remove the memory card after the event and it will remain on the card. This product comes with a mount to fit it to your car.

I didn't know they still made these things!

No wonder they’re giving lifetime updates, the lifetime is looking quite short on these devices!

The dashcam is probably the only thing worth getting but not sure how good a deal it is.

Waste of money. Just use your phone. Cold.

Great deal, especially as it'll cost you £200 and 6points if you touch your phone, even when you're using satnav.

As I understand it, using a HAND HELD mobile device whilst driving is against the law, if it is on a mount or cradle then you are good to go.

According to the law, you can use it as a satnav, but you CAN'T touch the screen, it needs to be set up before you drive off. If you have to alter the route you have to pull over safely and stop the car.

Can you please point me to a police or government web site with this information ? Not a newspaper or other third party site. Thanks

The gov.uk only appears to state

If you use your phone hands-free, you must stay in full control of your vehicle at all times.

The police can stop you if they think you’re not in control because you’re distracted and you can be prosecuted.

The law
It's illegal to use a handheld mobile when driving. This includes using your phone to follow a map, read a text or check social media. This applies even if you’re stopped at traffic lights or queuing in traffic.
It is also illegal to use a handheld phone or similar device when supervising a learner driver.
You can only use a handheld phone if you are safely parked or need to call 999 or 112 in an emergency and it’s unsafe or impractical to stop.
If you’re caught using a handheld phone while driving, you’ll get 6 penalty points on your licence and a fine of £200. Points on your licence will result in higher insurance costs.
If you get just 6 points in the first two years after passing your test, you will lose your licence.
Using hands free (e.g. for navigation) is not illegal. However, if this distracts you and affects your ability to drive safely, you can still be prosecuted by the police.

Taken from think.gov.uk. A Government website.

You can't even use it as a visual aid for driving, only hands free verbal directions.

Thanks but that tells me about hand held mobiles and not the use of a device in a mount.

Read into it how you like, it's your licence.

Yeah they definitely will nick you if they see you poking at a phone screen. A quick Google will reveal plenty of recent articles reporting on this

So can you not leave a phone in a holder and not touch it with the Sat nav running on screen without breaking the law?

A Motorola device with lifetime updates!
Now that's a novelty although they might be referring to the lifetime of a dung beetle.

In the days of replaceable batteries I would have agreed 100%.
Now that our phone longevity is mainly limited by battery lifespan I prefer having a dedicated sat nav to reduce the wear on my phones battery. I cover more miles than most though so might not be an issue for other people.

Motorola’s lifetime won’t be too long either!

I'd always choose my phone, to benefit from live traffic conditions during navigation.

you can get live traffic from tom-tom also.


does anyone know if you touch sat nav screen whilst car is moving will result in points/fine etc?
I find it equally distracting.

Most TomToms and Garmins have live traffic now. I’m pretty sure my TomTom uses similar data to Google’s as they always suggest the same routes and offer similar ETAs.

Your TomTom or other satnav etc won't have texts or notifications etc popping up on the screen.

So do they have a bluetooth connection to your phone or something?

My old one had a traffic receiver that I attached and would give live updates. Got me out off quite a few jams.

You can leave it running on sat nav. However, if you then touch the screen for any reason whilst driving then you're breaking the law and you'll likely get points if they catch you

Regarding using a phone, I don't know if this specific to my phone (which is a sh!te one really), but when I hit a zone with high buildings (ie City of London) my phone SatNav app goes completely berzeck asking me to do U-turn, turn left and right when it is not really suitable. would a dedicated SatNav have the same problem?
