Thanks." domhart10, Volvo Owners Club "I had my renewal notice from my existing insurer yesterday, nearly choked on my coffee when I saw the amount!! I then tried the usual comparison site exercise and secured some cheaper options online as expected, mostly from companies I'd never heard of which always worries me! I then rang Ian at Chris Knott about the VOC Insurance offers and was very pleasantly surprised with his helpfulness and efforts in securing an amazing price for my V90. I reckon he's saved me around £500 on my original renewal shock, using a 'household name' insurance company too. Definitely worth giving Chris Knott a try!" cassell, Volvo Owners Club "That time of year again! Got my renewal quote from Chris Knott, not the cheapest this time, renewal came in at £435, cheapest online was £390 with esure. Rang Chris Knott, they waived the admin fee, and applied my recommend a friend discount, and new renewal came to £401, not that far from the cheapest but I'm not going to quibble over £11. This will be the fourth year with the same insurer!" Imran, VWAudiForum "I had to ring and inform my Insurer about the new tow bar. A call to the firm took me 42 seconds from start to finish. It was stress free and the service was faultless. It really proved that all this data protection stuff spouted by some other places can be done without stressing everyone out and all the better for it. I hope I never have a claim to try the service to the full, but up to now I am hugely impressed with the service, the price and the cover provided. WELL DONE and my thanks!" The Panda Nut, FiatForum "Great company to be with and are very helpful I can recomend CK to anyone." sub, FiestaSTOC
I've got a dashcam that I've been using and gives reasonable pictures and sound. I had to turn down the sensitivity because potholes+lowered is too many false alarms. It did record the impact noise GPS location and me swearing when I got rear shunted and i walked the culprit around the front of my car so I had him on video. Nice guy, he was interested in the engine. BUT the next accident might not be with such a nice driver. So really I think I need a rear camera too. Any recommendations? Does not need a screen.
How many of us here have a dashcam installed? if so what model have you got and what do you think of it? I bought a DDpai M5 off ebay just before christmas, as a gift from 'tother half, I did orignally want a Nextbase 312GW which seems to a favourite generally, but I couldn't quite stretch to that at the time, my parents have one, and they say its really easy to setup. The M5 I have at its core is actually not too bad, the video quality seems quite good and clear, especially I think the night performance is good, and once you spend 10-15 minutes working out the chinese instructions it has a nice fleet of features. It does have two major flaws though, the "remote control" that came with it needs repairing everytime you power the cam on, and it actually went faulty within the first week of using it, if it worked as intended it would be brilliant, recording a picture and 10 seconds of video at the click of a button which can be attached to you keyring or affixed in the car permanently. the second issue is the chincy microphone, which just gives awful sound quality, not essential in a dashcam maybe, but if its gonna be implemented, at least do it right? at the moment mine isn't hardwired, mainly because I found out quite quickly if left on it does drain the battery! but I do have intentions of hardwiring it in with a power switch in future. it is also quite compact and light because it lacks a physical screen on the unit, if you would like to view live video of you driving (as opposed to actually watching the road?) you can hook up your smartphone wirelessly and view on that, the app also provides the funcionality of scrolling through all the past video and editing clips, posting to social media and downloading footage, alongside tweaking all the options like G sensor settings and quality. here's a little compilation of clips I have on youtube, inspired by the vids that Vio does
