    Have one in my car and 110.
    For what they cost now, they are must haves.
    Saves all the grief if involved in an accident.
    Those who don't want one in case it gets them in trouble? IMO, crap drivers.

    As Hippo says, not hard to install at all - getting the wires hidden in the head lining is tedious maybe ... but not difficult ... and what does it matter how long it takes - first one in my D1 was boring and long winded ... second one in SWMBO's D1 was very easy cos I done it before ;) :eek: :D

    Just as long as it's not your fault :rolleyes:
    You don't have to be a 'crap' driver to make an honest mistake, we are all human (allegedly).
    I've been driving for 55 years on a clean licence, but am not so conceited as to believe I'm perfect.

    DSC_0019.JPG our company uses two, one out of the windscreen and one on the driver. From my vantage point I see plenty of dash cam users looking at their phone and then bleating about catching other people on video doing the same....

    Guys, I've used a Blackvue 2ch unit in my daily for 2+ years now and it's of very high quality. It's designed as a professional front and rear dashcam system with superb video/sound + easy to use mobile App...even for me, it was plug and play, + live GPS +++ It is not a low cost Chinese-eBay type unit. Both cameras are very discrete with the forward camera hiding in front of the rear view mirror, the rear camera sitting just below the upper trim of the rear window. Simply, it works first time.

    www.amazon.co.uk/Blackvue-DR750S-2CH-Recorder-Included-Support/dp/B075DGTZYN/ref=pd_sbs_263_t_2/262-6363303-4145538?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B075DGTZYN&pd_rd_r=87eccd5f-867e-4452-9fba-defc4c729be9&pd_rd_w=jBuex&pd_rd_wg=uspjp&pf_rd_p=e44592b5-e56d-44c2-a4f9-dbdc09b29395&pf_rd_r=V42HGRAK0TPMJ842JR3R&psc=1&refRID=V42HGRAK0TPMJ842JR3R

    I'm going to buy another set in the New Year, hopefully Jan sales, to share between the D90 and my MGBV8

    I was but then I worked at Euston and drove regularly into central London. I could start a YouTube channel on a single trip of incidents.
