GPS is a must imho



At recording yourself speeding moments before a crash and the other insurance blaming you because you were doing 32mph in the 30 zone. Stay clear of GPS as it is not needed, serves no purpose other than to show YOUR speed and as I say you go over the 30mph the other party will have a field day.

So your commenting then!!!

I was also looking at the Nextbase 312GW - unsure which one is best, though.

I know the Nextbase has GPS, but the Roadhawk doesn't.

Tempted mixed reviews on different sites. I'll see what comments we get on here.

Personally I prefer the look of these smaller ones, there are a few brands that look similar and can be had cheaper with gps also

I've got a different dashcam, but with this same feature. It's a great feature...if you want your phone's storage to fill up and have no mobile data whilst driving (no spotify, Google maps, etc.)

Don't really agree. You know where the accident too place as you were there, and if speed is considered a factor in the accident it's easily calculated from the footage.

Thinkware Dashcam GPS shock sensor front and back camera lane departure warning front collision warning and parking mode also can be hard wired straight into your fuse board no messy plug in cigar lighter sell it on rac site. Hope this helps

Thinkware comes with 32gb card too

And WiFi straight to your phone and changeable strobe warning light

Oops forgot speed camera warnings brilliant bit of kit proves itself for me when I got ran into

Sounds interesting - what Thinkware model are you referring to?

Get the viofo a119, cheaper, uses a capacitor rather than battery. Won many top budget web cam awards, available with GPS or not. If you get GPS you can turn it off in the menu, great picture.

Personally i still use a Mobius dash cam - does everything i need and been going strong for just over 3 years now. Small and discreet so is hard wired into the car and only really visible if you know it's there and looking for it.

was tempted by a dashcam, but recent court cases have been unsuccessful so I've shelved it for now. My advice to anyone if they have an accident and they wish to pursue it, immediately following make sure u can get the dashcam out the car itself and show a video of you in the car etc as there footage itself is not proof it occurred against you or even in your car.

...recent court cases have been unsuccessful..



I would be interested in some examples of these unsuccessful cases. Are you saying people have been in accidents not their fault and the video has been dismissed as evidence?

Same here,why have a dashcam that some filthy smack head can see and smashes your side window too nick it for £20 drug money, my Mobius is almost impossible to see from outside the car but recent footage cleared up an insurance claim within minutes of me emailing it to the insurance company.

Can anybody help me with some questions?

1 - would insurance companies offer a reduction in premium for having a dash cam in the vehicle?
2 - are there any models that can record overnight I.e when the car is parked and not being driven?

Thanks in advance

Don't know about the insurance bit but I have this:- Mio MiVue DashCam, Dashboard Camera, Full HD, GPS, 2.4" screen in my truck.
It goes into parking mode when I'm parked and if there's any movement it records automatically. Does need constant power.
Paid about 70 quid about a year ago.

if a case such as this which is so abundantly clear what has happened isn't prosecuted, it makes me question what the point is in having them

same with me, very small and discreet and i only really need too look at the footage on the very rare occasions so most of the time it sits there doing its thing. Ive got three in two cars and will get another for the rear of my wifes car after findng a cigar socket in the boot.

Some insurers claim to offer a discount, a believe AXA actually ask if you have a dash cam when getting a quote, what difference it actually makes i don't know.

One thing to state though, if you attempt to make a claim (or counter claim) and you forgot to plug your dash cam in that day or for whatever reason it is not available, don't be surprised if the insurance company attempt to void the claim

It is powered by USB so i removed the 12v socket from the dashboard and hard wired it into this.

You stated 'court cases' but then only produced one example (& the only reason the person that crashed into them got away with it is the driver cannot be identified). Oh and dash cam footage is admissible as evidence in court and you can even be prosecuted by other motorists dash cam footage.

Thanks for all the input, guys and gals.
Most informative.

​I can't see any benefit at all from having GPS on a dash cam. It will only be used against you if you are speeding and involved in an accident.

If you want to hard wire a dashcam you'll need something like this that gets connected to a +ve feed that is switched by the ignition. ebay.co.uk/itm…922?var=&hash=item3d3a40d312:m:migvyaPZXtGcSN_6S4w0O0Q

Also the cps decided not to press charges, that does not mean that the insurance would not have paid out.
