    Dash cam....headache!



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    I've been researching dash cams on't Tinterweb, have looked at loads, and read so many reviews, that my head is full of pain Any one got any good recommends of any dash cams, without breaking the bank and doesn’t have reliability issues.

    There are a lot of very good units out there now.

    I've got a Transcend Drivepro which is very good, but plenty of alternatives.

    Try here for some reviews - Techmoan - What is the best Dashcam?

    Maplin

    Go and look in your local Maplins.

    I suggest that GPS is not really needed but your choice.
    You will see what you get and....

    I have always found Maplins good for returning an item

    I got a cheap one from Lidl for £29.99... an impulse buy, so I didn't have an opportunity to over-think it! I'm impressed with it. I then discovered that a friend paid around £150 to have virtually the same one installed in her car with hidden cables, etc. They each do the same job, with the same functions and features, so I'm hugely relieved for once that I didn't do the endless consumer research thing that I usually do and end up spending a fortune

    Depends what you want it for. If to sent the internet to sleep with miles of some random road and holiday views then go high end like a go pro but having said that there is Chinese equivalents that get great reviews at a fraction of the price. National Geographical sell a version also. They should all be HD.
    If you want it to just cover your ass with insurance claims something middle of the road. The 30 quid ones from Aldi get good reviews also. Yeah you can get the 15 quid ones what people say if good but if its for an insurance claim i want as much detail as possible so would stick with HD.

    I bought a Nextbase 512G when it was on offer at halfords, it's £20 more now. Good picture quality, has GPS which I wanted, otherwise does much the same. I'd say it was a good mid range choice, obviously not as good as more expensive ones.
    I now have 3 speedo's, dash cam, sat nav and the vans speedo, all showing different speeds

    My vote goes with the Lidl one. It has a three year guarantee. On the odd occasion something has had to be returned, a refund or exchange has been offered.

    We use these in all our vehicles and at that price you haven't lost a lot if it goes wrong. That said ours are several years old and still going.
