What dash cam

Think it's time for a dash cam
After having someone pull out on me and now my car is in body shop and I am driving a c1 😡😡😡😡😡
The other driver said I run a red light funny how no other cars at the junction pulled off the same time as he did not even till we had moved to a safer spot as there lights were on RED

so what dash cams are good for around 100 07 HSE TDV8 with lots of toys EGR removed BAS remap

I believe the next base is good for within your 100 budget you have set.

I personally use a ThinkWare X550 front and Rear and it's a great bit of kit. Even records while parked incase someone hits you Thumbs Up 2003 BMW M5 - 5 Litres of V8 Optimax Slurping Goodness in Carbon Black

I have a nextbase 402g installed, it's good but they all suffer from internal battery fail normally around 10 months, so then it's back to the seller to try claim for a repair under warranty, if your lucky it fails well with in 12 months. Mine died at 11 months so I had to buy my own internal battery (took a lot of googling to find the right one) and begin minor surgery replacing it.


This would be my next choice

Can take a 64gb card where the nextbase is maxed at 32gb.

This guy is on another forum I frequent, I also subscribe to his you tube channel, but this definitely highlights the usefulness

I've got the thinkware 770 & it's a good bit of kit with many useful features but they are 250.

Buckster,,I have the Thinkware 770 & was going to set it so it records when parked up but I'm worried about my battery going flat on the car as I have it hardwired.Have you connected yours to a battery pack.?
Also mine seems to take about 40 minutes driving before the gps connects,at first I thought it was where I had it mounted so I moved it & it's still the same.

I have a Thinkware 770 hardwired in mine and have never had a battery issue, it is voltage sensed which you can set in the menu so it switches off if battery starts to get low. GPS connects within a minute or so but it is a RRS1 and not a solar whatever windscreen.

What Col said, I have it hard wired and all ThinkWare have a voltage drop sensor that will switch it off if battery gets to low.

I do sometimes get the GPS connection straight away and other times it can take a while before it connects. I have a work colleague that has one and his does the same Rolling Eyes 2003 BMW M5 - 5 Litres of V8 Optimax Slurping Goodness in Carbon Black

Once mine as connected it will connect within seconds of turning ignition on unless it's been parked up over night then it takes longer.ill go into the settings & set it to park mode or whatever it is & set voltage,,what voltage have you guys set it to or will it be set to reccomended voltage.

I think you should only be paying around £199.00 for the Thinkware F770 UK, not the £250 stated. I purchased one last week at the £199.00 Front & Rear HD. Whistle John

other option is buy a F750, and do the firmware upgrade to the F770, as per flydrives thread a week or so ago

My F750 is loads more responsive now, with quicker connection to GPS and the time lapse parking is better

You just dont get a as neat look as the F770, but might be cheaper Idea

Thanks Col, I looked there and the 770 with F & R cameras was 249, front only @199.

I was just wondering where the 770 F&R is available @199 as per Johnski's post

@npinks, yes, the 750 & upgrade is certainly an option, will look into that. Just started the search for a new dashcam since my 3 year old blackvue seems to be on its way out!

The F&r are available from thinkware at 199 but with the 16gb instead of the 32.
