    Anyone using dashcams?

    Trying to decide on a dash cam that does GPS/Speed imprint on the video along with date/time.

    Did some homework online but that is not real day to day use.

    I hate complicated tech so I want one that does not require a computer science degree to operate, has a removable storage chip and possibly blue tooth connectivity (but not a deal braker)

    After, my Stepson's research, my wife bought me an Akaso. I have yet to hook it up. I drive several vehicles so I want don't want it permanently mounted in a vehicle.

    I installed a Thinkware in my Buick. It's very easy to use and it also has a rear camera.

    Been driving for years with a cheap $20 Wal Mart dash cam on my Silverado. Got some pretty good videos of crashes and such. Nothing worth the nightly news, but my colorful cursing commentary in the background is always entertaining. :)

    Have all the vehicles hardwired for them, its simple. Won't drive anywhere without them now. Then I transfer the cameras between the old cars, and have a seperate one for the truck that stays mounted. Just a couple $45.00 G1W-Cs, they take surprisingly good video. I HAVE been on the news (one night when some people who stole a truck and trailer were running from the cops at high speed the wrong direction guess who was coming he other way?). Won't go anywhere without them. Buddy at work was in an accident, other persons fault, all kinds of claims made he showed the cops and insurance company the video, done.

    After a near miss in mine, I did a ton of research. No real cheap ones here in Oz, even the US / China cheap ones aren't that cheap. So if I was going to do it I was going to do it right. I also wanted 4K. I bought a Blackvue 900 2 Channel (front and rear camera). Got it on sale but it was still over $500. Love it. So easy to wire up. So easy to instal. I only use it for driving, not parking mode, and it's been flawless in use now for close to 6 months. Could not be happier.
