Dash cam was created by helijohn
Most of the dash cams seem to attach to the screen or the mirror. I am looking for one under £20 that sits on the dash. Can someone recommend one please?

In my experience the cheaper you go the worse the picture quality is and on playback you see next to no detail at all. Even worse at night.

The older I get the more I like it

Mine is similar to this but not this acutal one. Do not buy from buyers with this low score, keep it over 99%.
Reverse cam and all. Works OK and picture quality is enough for me.
The better quality, the less film you got on your SDcard, but with too poor quality the film can be pointless..
SDcard often is not included.

Those type are good. I have something similar on one motor but it means I lose the dip mirror facility. It has a tinted anti glare coating but it is not enough.
I have a cheap screen one which gives great results and only cost just over a tenner but they drop off the screen after a while.

Are there any bargains to be had in Maplin's whilst they still exist?

I regret i did not spend a few NOK/GBP/USD more and got a real HD camera.
I passed an accident this weekend, and video quality was not good enough so my journalist brother could use it as a picture in his newspaper..
