The cards you are referring to are called "High Endurance"

Can anyone recommend a dash cam that's pretty inconspicuous? Maybe something 5hst clips onto the back of the rear view mirror.

why do you want it to be inconspicuous.

To be honest most are, you can't see them because of reflections, or you see it and think it is a GPS. Or even you don't notice it because you are focusing on the road.

Please note - requires Micro SD card class 6-10 up to 32GB
So wont take a 64GB?

I use a Viofo A119 which is mounted at the top of my windscreen on the dots around my rear view mirror. from the outside all you can see is the camera lens which is about the size of a 1p coin.

Like this : viofo.ro/ima…jpg

I ve got this cam; pretty s***t. Give it a miss. The power cable dodgy connection, poor connector to windscreen- flimsy. Unit it self good built- shame about connectors and connections- AVOID!

Cold......not Sony!


Have a little heat from me.

I've had this one for about 6 months and it's not bad. It's not worth more than £100, but it's not terrible either. It needs to be updated to the latest firmware (because the auto white balance wasn't working and daytimes were being overexposed), and as hr08 mentioned, the power cable is terrible. Mine lasted a week. Thankfully the device is powered via mini usb, so if you have a usb -> cigarette adapter plug, it'll work fine.

Also British Summer time gets reset if the device runs out of power, for some reason.

Hard to recommend this at anything more than £60. But if it lasts me another year, it pays for itself in insurance discount.

I've been using this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Vantrue-N2-Dual-Dash-Cam/dp/B01A4YUITY?th=1

Fairly small and non-shiny. Also the power cable goes to into the suction mount so can be permanently left in. The camera can be detached/attached in 2 secs (glovebox when parked, although it has parking mode)

Mobius Action Camera are matchbox sized and are easy to hide. never quite understand these people with the huge dash cams taking up half the windscreen. Ideally you want something you can leave in place and not have to remove and take with you OR hide in the glovebox or under the seat where a smack head would never look.

I use a mobius as my rear camera. Works great and can barely be seen from outside.

I really want the latest 60fps @ 1080p drool

Halfords seem to have edited the user reviews on this. Last time I looked it was down to 1.3 out of 5. Lots of people complaining about 'card error' messages, missing footage, and people returning them for a refund - with claims of Halford's staff acknowledging these being common problems.

So basically 95% of dashcam owners (including myself) are unwittingly using microSD cards that will fail prematurely? Why don't they include recommend microSD cards as part of a bundle or have 32/64GB of memory built in so consumers don't need to faff about having to find the right memory card?

Thanks for the link btw. Had a feeling that standard microSD cards weren't good enough but barely any manufacturers warn us of that!

That's not often true. I've used dashcams that indicated they won't use a 64GB but worked fine when I popped one in. Not sure why they suggest upto 32GB, unless there's some specific reason for that?

Same reason most kids toys were "batteries not included" its the cost plus the HIGH ENDURANCE cards only have a working like of some many hours. My 64gb San Disk is something like 10,000 hours but the 32gb was 5,000 hours before fault. That's why I went for the 64gb version.

The dual camera setup would require a card that would need flaming fast write speeds and I think people with missing footage etc might have used a class 4 speed. Not all cards are equal and I only found out after trying to watch a near miss to find the card had corrupted and I returned it to San Disk saying it had been used in a Dash Cam. They then told about cards not being designed for very high write volumes over long periods.

Hope all that helps and yes the cards that are often "on offer" with these types of cameras at Halfords are NOT the high endurance one.

How have you got yours mounted Graham?

I have a Mobius in the rear of my last car (I haven't refitted to my current one). I use self-adhesive tripod mounts, available off ebay. They are the type with a ball-joint attachment and plastic collar to tighten. Should cost a couple of £ each, usually they are sold in packs of 2-3.

Well the rear is in the supplied harness which is glued to a piece of mounting plastic. The wiring is run through along the lining of the carpet etc from a 12v adapter under the seat. The front is pretty much the same. The top of the windscreen has a black dotted pattern for when the sun is low. I glued the harness on to this and the camera can be slid in. Wiring was run along the lining.

The software for the Mobius is really good btw

why do people buy this overrated trash? How much did Nexbase pay insurance companies

Is that using the connectors that comes in box or have you hard-wired? I'm thinking of hard-wire option and presume that is a different set of cables.

Do you use the android software with the live feed, I believe you have to pay for it though. Any other way to get a live feed from the mobius actioncam?

Bought one and wasn't that impressed so sold it.Build quality not great and couldn't align it properly to see out my back window.Bought the 412 instead amd pleased.

A VIOFO A119. Not only does it record 1440p, but it's best attribute is its clarity in motion. It costs around £80 on Amazon. It's the size of a box of tic tacs - very discreet and durable.

Is this worth the cash
