Where do you guys mount your dashcam? My intention was to mount in right next to the rear view mirror post but due to the the large area of frit on the windshield I had to reconsider.

Mine is placed just under the rear view mirror. The camera is small and it's hidden in my normal driving position.

jonesy - Main reason is likely for insurance purposes -- if someone crashes into you and tries to claim you crashed into them. Front and rear cams are usually recommended. Some people say not to get GPS or one that records speed as you can still be found at fault if you're speeding even if it's the other party's fault. Search around the Net and you should find lots of discussions on the topic, including catching parking lot shopping cart hits to the occasional UFO sighting :)

ah, gotcha.... I guess the liability factor for accidents, catching vandals (intentional or otherwise), etc... could be useful for some. thanks for catching me up. someone promise me if you get vid of UFO on your dashcam, that you'll post here please! LOL

I have one for driving for Uber and Lyft. It records outside in front (to catch really bad drivers around here) and the interior of the car (for misbehaving passengers). It's a safety and security thing.

I had it installed so they ran the power cord directly to the battery. The cord runs up the side of the thing behind the mirror and along the top and side edges.

I'm assuming that's for the inside cam. Looks like the one on the dash has a cable that runs down the dash and near a vent?

dang Vanessa, running Lyft and Uber out of a QX60!? I would NOT be sad to find out that's the ride coming to get me LOL beats the heck out of an old Honda Civic LOL


those cams look nice, by the way. very unobtrusive. what do you do about bad drivers with the footage? or are you talking about for other Lyft and Uber drivers that are bad? You can't just send footage of people being idiots to the local precinct, can you?

UFOs, stupid drivers, etc... Have you typed Russian webcam into YouTube recently? Hilarious!!!
I have not looked for them specifically, but have seen numerous dashcam montages from what appears to be European/Russian areas and I totally agree. Some of those clips are NUTS! but super fun to watch.
