Dash Cam Alternative?

I've wanted a dash cam for a while now but I don't like any on the market. I don't want a big screen on the dash with the same picture I am seeing out the windshield. I think it would be distracting.

I would like 2 channels, one for front and one for rear supplying video to a remote DVR in the glove box or under the passenger seat. I want the cameras hardwired and as small as possible which eliminates most of the ones that don't have a big screen. The only one I found that fits the bill is Chinese and got horrible reviews.

SO:

With the forward facing camera for the AEB system, I was wondering if anyone knows if it would be possible to pick off the video and send it to a 12v DVR? (If you can, you could also send the 360deg view camera as well although they may not be aimed ideally.)

Hi, I have been looking as well and I will go with this one. Its dual CH, small has wifi, remote viewing and cloud saving ability. Also monitors battery voltage so that it does not drain your battery down to far.

Hope it helps, good luck

I've been using one of the small, cheap "Ambarella" style dashcams
which has been really good.

e.g

I'm wondering if one of these would also fit the F-Pace:

The second link would make it look stock if it works

For those who race (legally of course) it offers a record of what the driver did right or wrong. For those who want to make sure they have a record of what they have seen whether it is just the scenery or the sight of an accident it it there for review.

I'm sure there are many other reasons of which I'm sure you are aware of.

The only thing i can think of is to prove lack of fault in an accident.

That in and of itself could be worth its weight in gold unless you are the one at fault.
