Dash Cams

Hi all,

Has anyone seen any good deals on dash cams. Nearly had a head on collision today with a car overtaking a parked car. Had to drive off the road to avoid it. The car carried on going and nobody stopped. Saw my life flash before me. Still in shock now.

the 70 minutes camera is really good.Great quality and easy to set up.
Best ones are nextbase. Clear, easy to use and robust. Superior low light and night recording. Cheap cameras are poor in low light.
Is the nextbase duo a good camera? £199 seems steep but if it’s worth it
We have a Nextbase, easy to install (hard wired) and quality is superb. Thankfully no collisions but it has helped us get a pay-out for hitting a huge pothole.
Halfords have this on sale. Is this going to be any good? halfords.com/tec…112?cm_mmc=Google+PLA-_-Dash+Cams-_-Dash+Cams-_-256930&istCompanyId=b8708c57-7a02-4cf6-b2c0-dc36b54a327e&istItemId=xxlaalraal&istBid=tztx&_$ja=tsid:94971|cid:868555879|agid:49387672212|tid:pla-331788093978|crid:203456299335|nw:g|rnd:2777379656448983263|dvc:m|adp:1o1|mt:|loc:9044908&gclid=CjwKCAjwma3ZBRBwEiwA-CsblMJAHEo5XXhXj5hncmVnkdE9yQfOc6IxtWProKS_Rk8T4dkRdFnkHRoC4eAQAvD_BwE
Have a look at the YI dash cam on amazon drops regularly to around £25 and just needs a micro SD card, great 1080p capture and connects to your phone to download footage. Easy to install yourself as connects to cigarette lighter socket. we have one and very pleased with it.

Link here:
amazon.co.uk/YI-…1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1529614831&sr=8-2π=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=yi%2Bdashcam&dpPl=1&dpID=41qXY0rgq3L&ref=plSrch&th=1&psc=1

The black one operates at 30fps while the grey version operates at 60fps and has a wider angle lens.

I've got the 720P version of the Nextbase Duo and it's very good in day or night conditions number plates are easily read clearly even at night. I paid £119 for it from the Nextbase Shop on Ebay nearly 11 months ago. I have a friend who has the 1080P version and the images from it are slightly better I don't think it's worth the extra amount.
I have the YI Ultra HD 2.7K version, which is great - was recommended on the Techmoan blog. Thoroughly recommended from me.
Look for ones with a 3M sticky mount, not a sucker. Nothing worse than your dash cam (or Sat Nav) falling off when you are driving

The Yi dash cam comes with the 3m sticky mount but I didn’t want to fix it permanently so ordered their official sucker cup version separately - not had any problems with it, just need to make sure the glass is clean and make sure you get all the air out when you apply and pull the lever down to form a strong vacuum. Had a friend who didn’t know he had to pull the lever down and couldn’t work out why it kept falling off
Does any own this. The reviews say it's a rebranded Nextbase. aldi.co.uk/voy…LWg
