    Looks like a good general review. Once I get my car I plan on installing two. One front and one rear. Do you figure a car audio place is a good place to start for install?
    Good channel, but that particular review is a bit dated. He has two newer videos with current models.

    Of course, once you watch those, YouTube will suggest some others. I think the best camera is going to depend on what kinds of problems you've experienced in the past. For me, I'm wanting a parking mode. I've already had some mystery scrapes appear on my bumper.

    Sorry to hear about that. Some guy in a truck backed into my CTD in a parking lot while I was standing outside the car and put a small crack in the rear bumper. There were several witnesses including my friends, so it was easy. I got his info and his insurance company cut me a check for like $700. I just kept the money and didn't bother getting it fixed. I didn't even see the crack in the first place. My friend with good attention to detail pointed it out.

    First off, glad to hear you are alright. I'm assuming it could have been worse?

    I see there are many choices for dash cam, if anyone has one they like, please advise. I already have a iPass transponder for tolls. Don't want a big camera, something I can use that is smaller but effective.
    @sparkman just got a dash cam (if I'm not mistaken), which I believe is rather small comparatively speaking. I'll reach out to him and have him take a look at this thread.

    Most of the time when small accidents happen it happens fast. Well this was so stupid and needless and was in slow motion so to speak. Will go to my body shop today and see if there is damage. It was the other drivers reaction that made it worse. Oh well, not really a big deal. But a small dash cam could work well, I assume the dash cam has sound as well? So they could hear my horn trying to alert the driver?

    Well went to my body shop, some light damage to grille and bumper cover, estimate to repair and all is $1006. Contacted the driver insurance company direct, they were very nice to work with. She bought the insurance online and didn't provide a phone number, why would an insurance company insure anyone without a phone number? So will take a few days to get resolved. Yikes no wonder car insurance is so darn expensive when modest repairs are so pricey.

    I have a GiiNii GD-188x I got for Christmas. Love it and has never given me a major issue. Records front and rear in one unit. Front 1080p, rear 720p.

    I think they sell it at Wal-Mart.
