Dashcam with rear parking camera?

4
Found 4th Dec 2017Edited by:"stovy"
I really want to get my dad a Dashcam with a rear camera for parking (preferably with the parking lines). My budget is around £60 but I do not know what I am looking for.
It most likely will have to be from a UK shop as its a Christmas present.
Any advice/help is welcome.

I am guessing a Yi or G1W-C(B) Dashcam will not have any capabilities of adding a rear camera?

There are £25 ones on ebay and even £50 ones on Amazon, I am worried they are the same thing but different prices but I am also worried the £25 will be total junk.
Really do not know what I am doing

EDIT: Anyone heard of the OTHA dashcam? It has a NT96658 cpu, front SONY IMX323 Sensor and a additional rear camera

EDIT2 : Should I go for a B40D with dual cameras instead?

Personally I think you will need a separate screen for the reverse camera as you will need a screen of about 4inches. I cannot advise you on a dashcam for £30 but look on eBay for reverse cameras and screen.

So you think I should get a Dashcam AND a reverse cam?
Hmmmmmm...
I am worried there will be too much gagetry around the car
Not sure what you want exists. There are dashcams that have a rear view function that films the inside of the car and the view out the back window but not suitable for parking. As above, you can get a separate reversing camera but it will either need it's own screen or if you are lucky the car will have an LCD capable of displaying the reversing view (however, unlikely that will come in budget). I've just bought a Yi to replace a Mobius and am debating whether to mount the Mobius on the rear screen to record the rear view. A quick look on Amazon reveals a dual camera dashcam within budget but I have no idea whether it is any good.
Could always remove an electric window if you think that will help lol!
I had this set up and it worked brilliantly. It also allowed me to upgrade my stereo with screen and still use the camera, so now have the screen spare.
