Dash Cams

Do you have one?

I have always been mildly interested in them, but never really looked into them. I do spend some time idly browsing Youtube though, and people post videos from their dash cams often. More and more it seems they can be used to protect you in the case of an accident, or some other driver behaving foolishly. So I took the plunge, but didn't spend a lot of money on this first one. Cheap Chinese device, but it is very simple to operate, uses a flash memory card, and stores up to like 4 hours of video. It continuously records 3 minute loops. Honestly, the most challenging part of the setup was deciding how to route the power cable to the cigarette lighter.

Just got it all hooked up and working, but haven't actually driven with it yet. Seems like a slick little simple device though.

maybe a dumb question but does it capture audio too or just video?
how obvious looking is it? (maybe post a pic?)

It does have a microphone to capture audio too, but use of it is optional. It also activates "emergency recording" if it detects an accident (from shock).

Mine looks pretty obvious I guess, but they do come smaller and placement is flexible.

Well then, you'll be fully prepared to record the next meteor that impacts/air bursts near you.



As I understand it, accidents are so common in Russia that many people have dash cams to protect themselves when they have an accident. That's why so many were in the area of this meteor.

The issue in Russia is insurance fraud, people run in front of you at an intersection and jump on your hood, then fall to the ground and fake injury, for instance. There's a fair amount of that shyt out there on youtube. That's what's driven the dash cams more than anything over there.

Had my first commute with it this morning.

What I like about it is it is just kind of a set and forget kind of thing. It sits there and does its job every time the car is started. I don't really even need to think about it unless something actually happens, which is unlikely.

Not bad extra protection for 50 bucks.
