With this Dashboard Camera, your car will never be the same again!
I was checking dashcam talk and people were saying that if you're lucky enough to get one to survive more than a month or so, it'll last, but they mostly die very quickly. I guess you were really lucky as was I with my first 0803.The only issue I've had with the Mini (of the three I own) is a bad card in one.
There are so many backers because most people have no idea that decent dashcams are available outside of the very expensive units fitted to police cars.Just saw a Kickstarter ad on my Facebook with the following clickbaity headline

Am I missing something? Why is this spectacular? Why are there so many backers?
Different brands use different memory and different memory controllers. SanDisk uses their own proprietary controller that for various reasons sometimes causes compatibility issues with Chinese dash cams.Also had some card issues on dashcamtalk forums, but they said it was likely because I have a SanDisk microSD card, though I don't know what the brand of the card has to do with it.
Those of us in the North Texas FG contingent that actually use dashcams are using G1Ws or G1W variants and find the thing vanishes behind the mirror fairly well.Someone recommended I look at the G1W, but man is the form factor terrible. I don't want a suction mount bigger than the camera itself. The thing I really like about the Mini was how tiny it was and how easy it was to hide behind the rearview mirror. The highly reviewed A119S is also a no go for me since the lack of ability to hide behind the mirror is a deal breaker for me.
I'm late to this party, but I've been running an A118-C since last June with zero problems.Those of us in the North Texas FG contingent that actually use dashcams are using G1Ws or G1W variants and find the thing vanishes behind the mirror fairly well.
Set it up. Very painless, very quick and very easy.Just ordered a Goluk T3 for my fianc?e's car. My dad upgraded to one from his Mini 0803 a few months ago and has been very happy with it. I'll report back once I get a chance to play around with it.
I thought weatherproof stuff would be marketed to bikers, but tbh I didn't find a whole lot. There's Innovv C3, which is a bit old, but still available on ebay, and a new C5 which looks very fancy and expensive.MXM;n3545977 said:Also with the upcoming roadtrip in mind, I think I finally want a dashcam. Something I can hang between the seats from the top of the roll bar. Preferably bullet-shaped, possibly even remote camera head. Most importantly, it needs to be low or zero effort to use it. I do NOT want to turn anything on or off every time I'm in/out of the car. It's no problem to get ignition power to it. Also in terms of actual recording, I'm a bit lost. What's the state of the art now? Is it feasible to do a whole day of recording without changing media?
Oh, and weatherproof, that's a must.
