Dash Cams?

Anyone have suggestions for a decent quality dashcam?

I got a Transcend Drive Pro from Amazon at a reasonable price. It has wifi capability also. You want the cam to record the dumb person that causes a crash or to record that special moment.

A friend of mine uses a go pro but the memory on it is not good. He deletes it all the time, he has it incase of an accident.

You can put quite a bit of memory on the Go Pro and dial back on the resolution to increase your video time. It provides an excellent picture for recording your adventures.

I use an app for my Android smartphone called Daily Roads Voyager. I mount it on a Ram suction cup mount with an X-grip holding the phone.

An iPhone would work too and there is a pretty cool time lapse app out there for it as well no cant remember the name but there are probably several. I think it would be really fun to get a time lapse of an entire trip.

On our last trip I had my iPhone mounted to the dash to use for a gps so I couldn't really use it for pics or video along the way like I wanted to. Kind of dangerous to be switching to camera and back to the GPS while driving.

Another great option, as someone else mentioned is using a go pro.

I use a GoPro. Just as Quahog said, you can put a lot of memory in them and dial back on the video resolution and get a lot of record time on them. As well they can be set to take timed stills, timed short recordings (like record for 30 seconds every 2 minutes. I also use mine on my snow machine when I ride, and at times if I am having to do it by myself, I utilize my phone and the suction cup mount and put the camera on the back of the TT and bluetooth it to my phone and use it as a back up camera.

look the NVGun40 channel on youtube to get an idea of quality and clarity while out riding around. I will be making videos caught while using my gopro as a dash cam of idiots who seem to forget about how to drive in snow fairly shortly.
