Old model Nextbase 612GW 4K is down to £109 from £200 at Halfords, got one myself the other day.

Make sure you use a MicroSD that is designed for continual writes, Sandisk High Endurance or similar. I've found that 'normal' fast cards which are great for photography can die after about 12 months in a dashcam.

NextBase seem to draw the majority of good reviews if you believe the ones on Amazon.

My wife's car has some unbranded thing but it works a treat, its got clear images even at night, reliable and never gives trouble - its hard-wired in (which is very easy to do and far neater than having cables draped all over the place).

My Jimny has a Garmin sat-nav with a built-in camera which I like, as I haven't got to have several gadgets stuck on to the windscreen.
The only thing about it is that if there is an incident I have to remember to hit the 'save' feature before it rolls over into the next day as the video footage gets overwritten

Are they really a good idea or are they just another way of big brother insinuating themselves into our lives. Convince me.

Nah - I dont see them as a 'Big Brother' thing - more a weapon to use against skinflint insurers that won't/don't want to cough up in a claim. Also I regard them as a way of protecting my wife and myself from 'crash for cash' scumbags.

Sadly, I see them as a neccessary evil in the modern world :(

Yeah I've seen quite a few reports of crash for crash antics so that's one good point for it plus always helpful to help someone else out if needed, another plus is the off roading :)
