Man alive, some people. It's a pound fourty
I bought this a few weeks ago and it seems to be working well. You don’t need to think about it once it’s installed. The connected app works well when you need to save any clips.

This is the only moderately interesting thing I’ve captured so far - a van overtaking by going the wrong way around a roundabout:

On the basis that time is money that’s just cost you a few bob! Are people really scrambling over a pound ?

Would these work well as cheap security cameras behind glass?
What's the difference between this one and the other one on the same page for £38.99?
Well that's annoying I purchased this the other day on a lightning deal at £26.99

The other one grey has a wider angle of view and records at 60fps rather than 30fps so can capture more detail if you needed to say look at a number plate on a fast travelling vehicle.

Possibly as they record well through the car glass even at night, like all camera they do pick up reflection on the glass itself, however this can be minimised by adding on a clip on lens adapter and a anti glare camera lens, both on amazon relatively cheaply.

Which one is it that you are referring to? The glare at night is bad, so you can't see the number plate in front

Why even bother? The Yi Home cameras are cheaper and actually designed for this. The Dash Cam isn’t designed for motion detect and has no cloud capability. Nothing behind glass works all that well, if you are semi-serious (because it’s not a complete security system) get the Yi Outdoor cameras and mount outside.

I would say that those features are worth the extra. Would be very annoying to be involved in an accident and you didn't catch enough on the SD card or with lack of detail for number plates.

I don’t see why not, but you would want a large memory card as this device overwrites old data when its at full capacity.
These are fine as a "who is to blame" camera but do not expect decent quality video. I have had one for a while and the video quality is even worse than my old one cheap ass dash cam I bought years ago.

You have a Xiaomi dash cam? Video quality is excellent, you have a faulty unit or wrong settings if not.
Is this complicated setting it up. Or is it just plugging in to the cigarette lighter part

kind of hate having messy wires
Here we go!!!

The one is often down to around £30 on their promotions and is worth waiting for and worth the extra few pounds in my opinion - I got 2 for £29 each and are very happy with them
Heat! ordered

The ones classed as High Endurance are recommended but a lot of people say they ain't needed.

these are a great piece of kit, video quality is amazing you just need to download the video correctly.
I have the grey 60 FPS one and for the price it's a great bit of kit, highly recommend

Get a CPL filter from ebay for around £3. Search 37mm CPL filter.
Easy to hardwire if you have some solder knowledge and buy a hardwire dashcam kit. Might buy another for the rear this time!
What type of mount does this come with?

A fixed one, if you want a suction cup one you'll have to buy it seperate.
