Rearwards dashcam

I just wondered how people have managed to rig up a rear-facing dashcam. Even with a hyper-clean rear screen various mirror fixings don't work, suckers fall off (presumably because the heating wires let in air).

It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway; avoid sticky tab touching the heating elements in the rear screen. Thumbs Up Robin

Does the rear screen stay clean enough for long enough to use one? Wink Merc C220 estate Sport AMG

Good point Bill. I've moved mine a bit lower so that the sweep of the wiper includes that patch of glass but it is very intrusive when looking in the rear view mirror and so I think I'll move it back up sometime, or try to sort out a lower position for it as (I think) Cymruambyth has done. Robin
