Thinking about putting some in our trucks to protect our selves as well as the drivers. Just curious what everyone else is using and which ones to stay away from? Thanks in advance!!

Hi guys, we found a prospective vendor that can supply an affordable dash camera if anyone is interested. This is intended for someone that doesn't currently have one and wants something simple for security and liability reasons. It comes with everything you need and 3 simple steps to set it up.

1. Take out of the box and mount it to your windshield.

2. Plug it in and install the memory card.

3. Turn the power on and you are good to go.

All footage can be easily downloaded to your computer if needed and it continuously records.

If you're interested you can reply to this forum or email [email protected] to get more information. We can have it shipped to you in a few days.

Insurance agent recommended a camera that only records a small loop. Don?t want weeks of footage that could be used against you by a lawyer.

We have them thru verizon. It records 5 seconds before an event. Hard brakes , accidents and several other features. But its $25.00 per month, which is ok for us. I know some people want one that you can pay for up front.

We use SureCam units. Small monthly fee. Also have gps built into them. They have saved us several time from a claim.

I use a WheelWitness. Ten hour record time in adjustable two to five minute loops. You can save any loop from the SD card or WiFi it directly to your mobile device. It’s wired to the key so it comes on when you crank up turns off with the key. Best $129 worth of proof you’ll spend.

I've been using a Blackvue, can record on 1 to 3 minute segments, uses SD card and has wifi connection also to download the data but most importantly it uses a capacitor instead of a battery, big reason is it can cook in the sun all day with no issues. I've had mine about 3 years with zero problems

The thing I like about the Verizon cams is that if an event occurs, it sends me an email and I can check it out myself. As an owner I dont have to rely on the driver telling me to go look at what happened to him. We have had drivers that follow too close and have to hit the brakes, a lot. Some run off of the road, a lot. These things happen to all of us but happen to some drivers more than others. This way we can look and see for ourself. We have them mainly for our liability. This is just another perk. We all just want everyone to be safe.

I'd recommend a dash camera that shows your current speed as it records. As well as audio. And when a scumbag dot officer accuses you of speeding on the exit ramp and exceeding the speed limit accross the scale, you can let him flip out and bully the crap out of you....then till him you have a dash camera and are happy to review it, watch him turn red and instantly act polite and tell you your free to go. I have zero, absolutely zero respect for a significant number of these dot people.
