Should You Have A Dash Cam


Recommended Posts

Just buy a USB Charger that plugs in the cigarette lighter. Nowadays all Dash cams are connected via USB !

most if not all dash cams comes with a cigarette lighter plug, why buy a charger ?

if you want to use a spare cell phone as dash cam yes buy the charger

Just installed mine - ordered a trio of items at same time

1 - 5 outlet cig adapter 3 x 12 V  - 2 x 5 V for charging phones

2 - 8" fans (actually about 7 1/2 ?) 1 speed high no low

1 - 7" dash cam

Ordered on Sat - outlet came on Wednesday, fans on Thursday, Dash cam on Friday

Very easy to set up - ad included instruction video - used wall charger to set up  - has internal battery so you can set it up for parking monitor @ 2 g - someone smacks car it turns on cam

Can have front major vs rear minor or  rear vs front or side by side or only front or only rear OR none while still recording.

The rear view mirror itself is large and very nice - more of a polarized  than silver mirror effect

cords are very long - especially the rear cam

Only con is the dash cam mirror vibrates due to rubber attachments holding it - picked up some double sided foam tape - will apply tomorrow

Paid about 2 K - there are cheaper ones - same specs - this brand I knew

Edit - internal battery is not for parking monitoring - only for memory of setting

Need to rewire car or have a dual supply made - power bank w/ USB spliced into main power from cig lighter - rather than rewire car.

I have a mirror cam in both vehicles plugged into the cigarette lighter input, and they are almost completely undetectable. Costing less than $50 each, saves any arguments in case of an accident. Of course if I was in the wrong 'mums the word'...

Got a great short of an armored truck blowing a stop light then making left hand turn from right hand lane ?
