I'm looking to put a dash cam in our flatbed truck. Newish Ford F450. Rides like a deuce and a half with cement wheels. The suction mount Garmin GPS can't hang onto the windshield for very long between drops onto the dash.
Further, the dang auxiliary power sockets stay live when the key is shut off, complicating the whole automatic recording functionality. So, it will need to be hard wired in somewhere, somehow. Yay. Thanks Ford.
Any gadget junkies have a recommendation? I've read good reviews about these G1W things and the similar A118 versions, which I like the unobtrusiveness of. I don't care for a windshield becoming a media center.
And I'm not interested in something like a go pro or using a smart phone. I want dedicated stuff, out of mind, and preferably out of sight.
I'm only considering new technology, micro sd or better. Long recording storage, several hours. Only HD quality, no last year's clearance models. Been there, done that. Not worth the savings.
I'm not necessarily looking for the cheapest thing available but it seems like you can get something good for under $100 these days. Maybe I'm wrong about that one, which is why I ask the question.
