Cool Dash Camera

I love the B and I want to know it safe so...
Anybody has a dash traffic camera installed on their car?
What you think about this?
Have my eyes on a Prestigio Roadrunner 520.
This is the reason why:

It also features motion detection so even when stopped in the parking lot it will record if anybody wonders around the car, checking doors and stuff.

You'd be better off looking in this thread

Camera on the last current page would probably be better

Re: Dash Camera

Already own the Roadrunner 520
I am just curious if other B owners have dash cams

Kiry, to be really honest, going to Nurburgring with my B is my dream!
And yes, this camera will have this purpose also, hopefully this year!
I already make plans for NOS trying to gather all the useful information about getting there to do some laps.

Re: Dash Camera

I have a dash cam with a 32 Gig card in it it records on 15 minute overlaps and has a motion detector, I use it in my HGV Truck catching all the stupid drivers.... well worth the investment.

Re: Dash Camera

Just ordered this one. For less than £14 got to be worth it.

If it works, a few are known to arrive and not work, but if you've paid via PayPal at least you're protected.

If it does work they're not bad though, got a similar one in our Panda, although it fell of the screen last weekend and the mount has snapped

Well I got exactly the same one, but I did pay more and got it next day. Very pleased with it.

With the cold weather, the B is away in the garage for the winter, so I didn't want to pay more for additional postage.

What size card do you have in it and how long does it record for?

Re: Dash Camera

My earlier post said what you asked, but for how long it records for on a 32 Gig card the short answer is I dont know, but you only need maybe a 4 gb card as it will record in segments up to 15 mins per segment, then it will overwrite and start again, so if an incident happens you can just stop recording and save it to your computer,
Simples.
I got mine on next day, and you just might get stung for import duty, I hope you don't but it may work out more expensive than mine, any good luck with it.

8GB, can't remember how long, but long enough

As these are cheap units, putting a card in with too higher capacity can cause them to poop themselves and corrupt files
