Some states have laws on the placement of anything on the front windshield.

I've got one that clamps over my rear view mirror with two cameras that turn. One camera to the front and the 2 to the rear. And if I want to the rear one I can easily turned to record anyone outside the driver's side door.

Looked look and hard and the ones that stamp the video with GPS and your speed. I tend to have a lead foot and didn't want my own cam used against me.

I'll keep that in mind....as small as they have these things now, can probably get one that fits on the mirror.

Forget walmart. Get this one:

https://www.amazon.com/SpyTec-Camera-GPS-Logger-Recording/dp/B01HN0HBFG/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1497891967&sr =1-3&keywords=dash+camera+a119

It fits behind the mirror to where I cannot see it from the driver seat and I ran the wire in the upper upholstery / soundproofing.

TheLazyL, I thought the same thing about the speed but I can turn the speed stamp off.

I was looking at this, but that one on Amazon looks pretty good, too. Geeez, I hate making decisions!!

Check youtube for reviews of the models you are looking at. Don't skimp out because this could help you out of a jam or save your butt in an accident (legally speaking)

Get something with a capacitor for the power (batteries do not do well in hot cars)

Ignore the g-sensor lock features. You will get a bunch of saved files because you took a turn too hard, or slammed on your brakes. Every few weeks you will have to go in and delete recordings so you do not max out the memory card. Instead just get a decent size memory card. Mine will record about 6 hours of on time. That is a week of commuting back and forth to work for me. I think that is plenty of time to remember I got into an accident 2 days ago.

Do some research on https://dashcamtalk.com/forum/ before buying anything.

2. In more general and contemporary U.S. usage, the term has become an ethnic slur for all Americans of Northern European decent.
