Hey all,

I'm now in the market to replace an old EBay/POS Chinese camera.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Wife just got a new vehicle and we want to replace her old camera. I want one for my truck as well.

Thanks as usual.

They don't make my exact model anymore but the link below is for the newest generation of it. About what I paid but now with rear camera as well. Its ok, night quality is not so great, has some silly extra features like an alarm that goes off after driving a long time at night to assure your are awake but its so quiet it would never wake you up. Have to buy a larger card for a longer recording loop cycle.

That said for the price its already paid itself off by helping me avoid an at fault claim by a lying POS driver. Guy claimed he rear ended me because I was reversing at a red light and backed into him...seriously. I laughed my ass off and Gave insurance the video and poof, 100% his fault right on video. Felt like delivering it to the guy personally and telling him to suck it. Either way, no lost merits or extra cost or risk of being at the mercy of a poorly trained assessor. Cost of paying for an at fault would have been more than the cost of the camera.

Id like to get one with GPS next time for a bit more money.
