Dash Cams?

Was wondering if any of you guys have these in your personal or company trucks? If so which one have you found to be the most reliable with the clearest picture and easiest to operate? It seems like Iíve been searching one for over two years and while reading reviews on Amazon just canít come to a decision as to which one to get. Looks like most of them have great reviews and at the same time horrible reviews so not sure which way to go with this.

Yeah I was looking at those blackvueís. Expensive is right. The reviews really arenít that overwhelming.

Iíll look at the one you just posted.

Are you able to read license plates clearly on that one you have now? Any drawbacks or cons to it that you can think of?

Yeah the reviews are great on this one and it was about 40bucks with a discount. Also I have other items like battery packs and cables made by this company. Most thier stuff is good and cheap.

Yeah that price is the great thing about it. I was willing to spend up to $200 but if I only have to spend 40 - $50 even better.

Are you able to read license plates daytime and nighttime pretty clearly with it?

I really like my dashcam - works like a charm and the picture is clear. Price was right. I use a 64g micro sd UHS 1 card for full HD recording.
