- Anyone got a dashcam??
being someone who drives 40k a year i’m on the road a lot. In my 20 year driving career I’ve been rear ended 5 times, and had a taxi t bone me on my motorbike. I’ve opted out of company car and now driving a new 5 series and if it wasn’t for the fact LV mirrored my partners 4 years NCD I wouldn’t have been able to insure the car.
When I was knocked off my motorbike it looked like a straightforward claim, he pulled out and knocked me off. After 12 months of navigating my way through all of the interfering claim handlers etc it came down to the other party coming up with ‘where’s your witness’ and my insurer made me accept 50/50 liability, which was a kick in the bollocks as I lost my only 2 years NCD, lost 50% of my third party losses and then four years later the bloody hire bike people tried to sue me for having a replacement motor bike for 7 weeks at £140 a day!
So, I can’t afford to be in a position of dispute if I’m in this situation again, so I’m looking at dash cams.
Apart form seeing numerous jaw dropping Russian footage, I’ve no experience of them.
I’ve seen a Snooper DVR2 and THIS one looks appealing…Posted 4 years agospooky_b329Member
I’ve got a cheap DVR, think it’s a DVR 007 or similar from Eestore on eBay. Seems to do the job and sits there minding it’s own business.
I think the 027 has IR LEDs on the front which are pointless, mine doesn’t and it makes it more discrete.
Reviews said a lot of the smaller ones had overheating issues though I wasn’t totally convinced the website was impartial!Posted 3 years agoFurrnerMember
I have been running one of these for about a year now.Posted 3 years agotrail_ratMember
be careful telling your insurance you have one – your damned if you do and damned if you dont …..
some deem it as a modification that needs declared – once you declare it though they reduce your premium and expect it to be on at all times…..
i asked about this recently with adrian flux , result was that when i do fit it – it wont be a perminant fixture and easily removable like my satnav….
“Are there any that you can wire into the car easily?”
all of them ….you just chop the cigarette lighter end off and wire it to an ignition 12v feed – comes on when you start the car….Posted 3 years agoMukeMember
