So in car dash cameras. Do you use one ? If so which one do you use and why?.
Was it fitted by your car supplier or a third party or by yourself?
Fitting a dashcam to your Motability Scheme car
If you are a Motability Scheme customer and are considering fitting a dashcam to your Scheme car, here’s what you need to know:
The dashcam must be plug in type and not hard wired into the vehicle
It must be attached in such a way as to not cause damage to the vehicle (eg fixed by suckers and not permanently attached to the dashboard)
Any associated costs must be covered by you (including the purchase of the dashcam and any fitting/removal costs)
Your dealer may also be able to help advise you on purchasing and installing a dashcam.
Well let me start this off. Yes I use a dashcam. The one I use after much research is the DOD-Tech LS470W
Why do I use this. Because there are so many issues on our roads that we face every day. We all wish that at some point or other if i had a dashcam fitted, I would have caught that accident on camera or someone else’s accident on camera. The camera does not lie. The capture can be and is accepted as evidence in court and insurance claims, So could potentially save you money and prove your innocence as to who was at fault. With so many uninsured drives on our roads, I really do think that a good dashcam is worth having.
The one I use is now 5 years old. It has worked faultlessly during that time. I posted a link above so you can view the camera and all its details. There are newer version available that you can view on the link. The software is easy to use on your laptop or PC to view the footed captured. Some cameras record to cloud base for storage and can be viewed on your phone.
I shall keep my camera and install it as a rear view cam. I plan on getting a new DOD cam for the front that has cloud storage and full speed cam data base that will also detect the mobile road side units. were as my current cam only warns of static road side cams.
